View Full Version : TYLVaria Cosplay-BlackxWhite or BlackxTan?

Ok, so here's my dilemma. I'm trying to buy a good Fran cosplay (without the hat) that I want as accurate as possible. Looking on ebay and other cosplay-buying websites, I saw that almost everyone only had the Black and White version like so (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180537168945&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT#ht_3643wt_1000).

A few clicks later, I found this (http://www.cosplayhouse.com/Katekyo-Hitman-Reborn-Flan-Cosplay-Costume-Version-03.html), which imo is much more accurate to the color of the varia's actual outfits (http://media.photobucket.com/image/varia%20reborn/MICHELLE9475/REBORN/Varia.jpg?o=5).

So, I just want your honest opinion on which I should choose. The price is fairly the same, so that's not much of a factor, but I would just like to know if the Black and Tan one looks like it would be worth to get.

P.S. I'm a little skeptic because from the picture, the Black and Tan one looks just a bit TOO tan. Help? :toothy:

careful with cosplayhouse :/

I'd rather buy this one cause it has the under shirt as well as the hat.

I saw that one but I think I was too hung up on the hat to even consider it! Thanks :toothy:

Looking at the actual outfit now, I can see that it's actually quite accurate, and like you said, it comes with the undershirt as well.

And, just for some piece of mind, why should I be careful of cosplayhouse? Looking through their selection, I thought their cosplays were quite well-made. Are they not that reliable?

Their sizing is bad...my friend ordered her fran costume from them in custom size...they gave her a standard large and they gave her the white instead of the tan......

and she ordered a ring set from them...that had the hell rings and mare rings, it came with everything BUT the hell rings that she needed....
