Will I be mistaken for Honey?

I've been dying to cosplay Tamaki from Ouran for ages, and I'm about to get started on my costume. However, I'm worried that I will be mistaken for Honey because I am really short, and honestly, with the blonde hair and the school uniform, they look a lot alike. Will people assume I'm Honey just because I am short and blonde, even if I'm carrying red roses or something as opposed to Usa-Chan? Some friends have suggested that I just cosplay Honey instead, but Tamaki is my favorite character, and I definitely want to cosplay him.

Probably. People go by first impression, and with uniformed characters, they go for whichever character looks most physically similar. With us short people, blond=Honey. I've heard of lots of Mori cosplayers being mistaken for Kyouya (and vice versa), and tall Honey cosplayers mistaken for Tamaki. It's just what happens, no big deal.

Go for Tamaki. You'll have more fun doing the character you want than settling for someone else.
