View Full Version : Ouran Cosplay Help

06-17-2009, 11:54 AM
Hello all! To make this very quick and to the point, here are the questions I have:

1) Where would any of you suggest I go to purchase the Ouran girl's uniform? I intend on cosplaying as Haruhi, but in her dress form.

2) Any idea what I could use to make the sleeves look legitimately poofy? In all the samples of dresses I've seen, they have the sleeve sectioned off and gathered like they would appear in the series, but they always seem so flat...I'm thinking maybe starch or something equivalent to that?

Thanks guys! Hope someone will be able to help me out!:confused:

To make it puffy-er (can't think of the word) you could use some stiff interfacing to keep it's full shape in the gathered sleeve. I haven't tried it myself but I think the interfacing should be a good idea..
If you get stuck you could probably ask at a fabric store..The people who work there might have some good ideas as well.
