Costume Information

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.

Like Seijuurou before him, every piece of this costume was bought and altered in some way. The jacket, wig and swim pants base all came from eBay. The pants are made of Spandex and the stripes on them are painted with some leftover green metallic paint that I used for Ariel, I dusted all the stripes with a bit of glitter to really make them stand out.The costume will be multifunctional for both swimming and for dry cons :3

Everything's finally been ordered (Posted 5th March 2015)

Everything finally shipped and is on it's way. I can't wait until I finally get to cosplay as my favorite swimmer! :3

Swimsuit >:D (Posted 7th November 2013)

So I decided on making the swimsuit to go along with this :)
I'm planning on wearing it under my slacks when I got out for the con and since there's a pool in the convention venue I'll definitely wear it for the rest of the day after a quick shoot :)

Jacket :D (Posted 29th October 2013)

Only 39 bucks on Ebay! :D
