View Full Version : I need an opinion! - Ouran HSHC

I need an opinion on a jacket for a Ouran High School Host Club Hikaru Cosplay.

So after a lot of complaining on my part about how much the cosplay cost, the fact that I already had black pants and a white shirt, etc. My mom got tired of listening to me and while shopping online bought me a blue jacket. Its not the actual cosplay jacket but just a blue "here make it your self outta this" jacket.

This is it: http://img23.imageshack.us/img23/140/sd530247.jpg

This is the one from the anime: http://www.hellocosplay.com/ouran-high-school-host-club-boy-uniform-cosplay-costume-p-80.html

So what do you think? Should I bother buying a tie and patch for the jacket I have? or save the money and put it twords the real cosplay?

I know that if I use the one I have that I need to add two more buttons. Also mine doesnt have the pocket flaps...do u think that matters? It also isnt split in the back. Again do u think that matters too?

My mom doesn care if I use it or not, she only paid $5 for it on ebay. But I really don't need the pants or white shirt. Just the blue jacket, tie, and patch e.e which is not worth $70+.
Not to mention I'm worried of buying the cosplay online because I dont want to pay for something that wont fit right.

Any help would be great, thanks!

In my opinion, tweaking your jacket and getting the tie and patch are fine. The one from the seller looks a little too green for my taste. I love the color on the jacket you have.

Thanks ^^ I liked the color of mine better too. Now I just gotta figure out how I'm going to tweak it.
