Series: Ouran High School Host Club Worn to: Youmacon 06, Acen 07 Status: Retired Difficulty: 2/5
Ouran Host Club is such an endearing series and one of my all-time favorites! Shortly after watching the series, I found out my friend Megan wanted to do a Host Club cosplay group. Our friends Kayla and Britt jumped on board as well. At the time, I was VERY new to sewing and thought that Haruhi's blazer would be a good beginning sewing project.
We all made our blazers from a very cheap, light blue cotton and light blue lining. The wig was a really lucky find I spotted on ebay and, although it had a few too many highlights, I ended up coloring it with sharpies to even out the color. The patches were bought from an ebay seller who was very nice and even sent us a free copy of the OST which we later used to butcher our karaoke rendition of "Sakura Kiss".
I learned so much with this project - how to insert lining, make button holes, insert sleeves, etc. I was fortunate enough to work on my blazer with my friends because they really showed me the correct way to do things and boosted my confidence. I consider this my first real sewing project!
