    Asi Haskal costumes?

    I've been trying for months to buy a new costume (or 2), and I'm having a heck of a time. I've found a few that I've liked, and they haven't fit properly. But I'm having a harder and harder time finding anything that I really like. There are a ton that "would work", but I've found very, very few that I'm excited about.

    Well, I found a costume that I'm really excited about. It's beautiful, and best of all, it's DIFFERENT than all of the cookie-cutter costumes that are around. (Don't get me wrong, I'm glad that there are a ton of well-made professional costumes on the market, but I'm excited about very few designs lately. They all look so much the same.)

    The one I'm considering ordering is an Asi Haskal. I've admired his costumes for ages, but I don't actually know anyone who has one of his costumes.

    So...how are they? I'm not wondering about design, I'm wondering about construction. Quality of materials? Finished edges? Long-term wearability? Design components- do they last through multiple wearings, or are beads/stones/etc going to fall off?

    The price is comparable to a upper-mid-range Bella, so I want to make sure that I'm getting my money's worth. Anyone want to weigh in?

    I've never owned one.. but if I'm not mistaken, he's costumed Orit Maftsir for years, hasn't he? If that's not a believable stamp of approval, I don't know what would be.

    Re: Asi Haskal costumes?

    To be honest, I wouldn't personally want to order one of his costumes. The ones I've seen look ok from a distance, but when you see them up close, the quality is not what I would expect for a "professional" costume, such as I get from an Eman, or a Hannan, or a Pharaonics. The fit is not fantastic and the decorations are cheap. I wouldn't trust his costumes to last as good solid workhorses, and I wouldn't be sure of the quality being such that I could resell well.
