Which is a Better Compromise?

I plan on cosplaying as Astamon and the costume is almost done. But I'm running out of cash and time, so can't afford to get his suit form a store or get it commissioned like the over coat. Now luckily I do have two suits one plain blue and one black with pinstripes though Astamon wears blue pinstripe suit as shown below.

Cosplays (Cons)
Gakuen Hetalia, Prussia (Shado 12)
Pokemon, Gold/Ethan (Shado 12, Metro 13)
Batman, Black Mask (Khaotic 14, Metro 14 & 15)
Soul Eater, Spirit/Death Scythe (Shado 12, Metro 13 & 14)
Hetalia, England Cd (Metro 13, Khaotic 14)
Pokemon, Giovanni (Khaotic 14)
DC Comics,The Question (Metro 15)
Durarara, Shizuo (Metro 15)
Steins;Gate, Okabe (Metro 15)
Noragami, Daikoku (Metro 15)

Can't take the blue one and temporarily add something to make the stripes? I am no seamstress or anything so I don't know if that would work at all, but there has got to be something you can do to make temporary stripes on the suit. Changing the color might look strange.... atleast to me.

Cosplay 1: Sailor Venus (Commissioner failed to make 4 month deadline)
Update: August 10th.... still nothing.

Reality: Recycled or no cosplay at all. Got to love commissioning! Thanks everyone!! Serious thanks to Dulcinea, who actually made the deadline for the accessories far in advance and of outstanding quality. Sucks they won't be used.

I agree with Larcenciel. If possible you should take the plain blue and paint some stripes on. If that's not an option...hmm...I guess I'd go with the black w/stripes. It's easier to reconcile a slight color difference than it is a fabric feature (like stripes vs no stripes). Missing stripes, in my opinion, would stand out at first glance way more than a color difference.
Planned Cosplays:
Digimon: Joe [Otakon 2015]
Kaichou wa Maid-sama: Misaki (Maid Latte uniform) [Otakon 2015]
Gundam Wing: Duo Maxwell
Adventure Time: Flame Princess
Sabriel: Sabriel
Chihayafuru : Chihaya (red/blue tournament outfit)
