COSPA Otome’s Ribbon & Jacket
As an Da Capo fan, I can’t seem to resist some of the goods that come out from the land of the rising sun. Much like when I bought the Nemu necklace last year. This time around there were two items, which arrived last week, I had a great interest in and they were COSPA’s Otome hooded jacket and COSPA’s Asakura Otome ribbon.
Asakura Otome is by far my most favourite of all the Da Capo girls, yes even more so than Nanaka. In the realm of siscon, there will always be two sides to choose from, and for me it has to be the onee-chan side of the coin. It’s probably because of Otome’s unquestionable devotion to her ototo-kun that has captured my love. Plus I find her cute when she acts all giddly. And for those who don’t know who Otome is, here’s a picture of her wearing her ribbon:
What I love about the ribbon, other than its the colour pink, is the patterns on it, which are sakura flowers. But I must say that this ribbon is a lot larger than I had thought. It’s also pre-tied up and has a clip so it makes it much more easier to slip on. I’d definitely would like to see a girl try this on but unfortunately I don’t have a girlfriend. Alas it will be stored away until that time comes, or perhaps I could get my niece to wear it. I’m pretty sure she’d look cute with it.
The other item that I purchased is something that I normally don’t buy, and that’s anime related clothing. But knowing that my most favourite onee-chan is blazed on the back of it, I couldn’t resist. Also it’s getting close to Winter here in Australia so I needed some new warm clothing.
I opted for a large size since Japanese clothing size scales are always 1 up from US sizing, so technically this is a medium size. But the problem with this jacket is the sleeves, they’re really small. It’s almost like they made this to fit people who’s body frame make them look like they would snap like a twig. It’s also a little tight around the shoulders for me but that’s because I have pretty broad shoulders (thanks to all the years of working as a nightfiller). Still I’m sure after wearing it a few times it’ll loosen up.
Those wanting either of these, unfortunately Hobby Search are out of stock of the jacket, but for those wanting their sisters looking like Otome are in luck as it will be re-released in August later this year.
