A while back I had written about attending Anime Expo 2015 this year since it was a late graduation gift to myself, the original plan was to cosplay a Vampire Knight student while I attend the convention, well on the Monday of May 18 at 10:32PM my dream of cosplaying Vampire Knight was ruined.
Over a month ago, I took it upon myself to order the uniform from a online seller, the cosplay was $96 plus shipping and handling would add it to about $105. I thought back then it was a good deal since I had two months to go before the convention, it wasn’t till now that I realized it was a huge mistake.
When I opened the alleged package on the evening of May 18, I was shock with disappointment of how different the product was opposed to how the actual uniform is suppose to be, the material was heavy and the lining looked like ribbon was just glued on the cloth, the silver buttons it was suppose to have turned out to be plastic diamonds. When I tried the uniform it proved to be WAY to small for someone of my size, it looked more like for a child.
People tell me I should of checked the sizing chart but what they don’t know is I did, i chose my size accordingly, but what it didn’t say was they were using a petite sizing chart for the measurement sizing. Over all i was a very disappointed costumer. I decided to give the outfit to my little sister, it fit her but my mother protested against the idea when i told her how it didn’t fit me. She said to return it and get our money back, and doing so now i am going to return it first chance i get.
Good thing i had a plan B in mind, but even that proved a failure as when i went to check the anime hobby shop, (Jungle Store) at Little Tokyo they had the uniform, just not in my size, i was very disappointed. So the new plan today is to order another uniform off the internet, and be sure to get my exact measurements using a adult chart and hope it would get here in time before July, with such notice every second counts, so hopefully its as they say, maybe the third time would be the charm after all.
