I'm cosplaying as Haninozuka (aka Hunny) from Ouran High School Host Club, but I don't have the money to spend the full amount on a costume after ordering the ticket for Otakon.

I have simple black pants, the white dress shirt and black tie are easy enough to borrow, and the shoes are easy enough to buy. Not to mention, I can borrow the bun-bun and can buy the iron-on patch for only around $5 online.

I simply need to know where I can buy a cheap enough jacket to match Hunny's. The light blue suit jacket that--of course--goes over the white dress shirt and tie.

If someone knows a store (online is ok as long as it ships in time lol) i can get something as simple as that? I've looked but apparently it's not as simple as I thought... >_<

If you don't know the anime/manga, or just forgot the details of the uniform, here's a pic of Hunny-sempai.

I've been looking for an Ouran uniform for weeks. D:
The cheapest online (that was accurate) was about $83.00. It came only with the Jacket (w/patch), white undershirt, and tie. x.x

Now I don't know exactly where you can get the jacket online, but I would advise going aroud to your local thrift shops. (which is what I was just going to do, until I decided to be Haruhi in this Alice-y wonderland dress)

The odds of you finding a jacket that looks right, same color, and that fits you are probably silm. So I suggest getting some purpleish (the jacket looks periwinkle to me. :\) blue dye (Rite dye, I believe) to maybe try to dye a white jacket.


Hope that helps even a little. X_x;

thanks for the tip! I'll try checking a thrift store first. If that doesn't work I'll just go ahead and find that... "Rite dye"?

Thanks :)
