|Once after Comic Con ended, my friend Chanelle had told me about an anime just known as the "Swimming anime." Her description? " Shirtless gay guys in a swim club." Needless to say I was instantly hooked. I really loved the show, the animation was well done, the character designs.....I can't lie here. They're all so HOT!!!!! >///< and I wasn't prepared to go on this emotion filled roller coaster. But I guess I'm glad to say I survived and I can't wait for season 2!|
I really compared more with Makoto out of all the boys. He's very sweet but at the same time he has all of this emotional baggage that really weighs him down. To be honest I really see more strength in him than really meets the eye and I really do love the hell out of him.
For this costume I opted to just buy all the pieces and edit them. After 4 commissions and working on Anna I really needed a break from sewing. The Iwatobi Jacket, T shirt and Pants were all bought from Ebay and Target. I made a pair swimsuit shorts to wear underneath and painted the designs to be a little more accurate to Makoto's swimsuit. The wig was also bought from Ebay but I wish it were a little bit more brownish :/
