So, one of my favorite manga's right now is Rosario+Vampire. I own 22 volumes currently, and I wanted to buy Moka's rosary choker on eBay...but it is meant for girls.

Would this be weird? If a guy walked past you with this on? And I don't want the same old "be what you want to be" and "make your own identity" shtick. I want what people would think. I think it's cool looking, but I don't want to come off in public as some Gothic guy too much...

Well I would be certainly looking at you and be like: "Whut is he wearin' ?!" But other then that, I would even think it would look awesome! Depending on how it would suit you of course! ^^

It could suit. Since it's gothic, it does seem like it could suit a guy as well. Just the style of the metal... Although I think the cross could be broader and more chunky looking.

Overall, it's possible.

I wouldn't even know if it's a "girl" accessory or not.

But then that's just me.

I'm just the chick in jeggings and t-shirt.

What do I know about fashion? Next to nothing.

I thought this was asking if it would be cool to buy something for a girl.

It might fly at cons, but if you're that worried about getting looks/questions, it's probably easier for you to pass on this idea.

Thanks for all the replies, guys. I haven't asked any of my friends yet because if I did decide to buy it, I would want to surprise them

I might buy it...but I guess I can go around and get more input

I think it would look cool, though it does look a little gothy.
