We had a group photo that could probably be the Iwatobi Swim Club yearbook picture, and I wanted to take it a step further by adding what their closest supporters might scribble on to cheer for them. Can you tell who wrote what? ;p

Did you notice Rei's new watch?
Nagisa got it for him
To remind him of the yellow Speedo


Final episode today! BRB drowning in feelings
IT WAS BEAUTIFUL. IT WAS PERFECT. IT WAS EVERYTHING I WANTED IT TO BE AND MORE. I AM HAPPY. I AM FREE.

In an attempt to fill the pool-sized void this series is leaving behind, I will soon post a photo journal of outtakes from this cosplay shoot. Please watch out for it!

Okay so the dialogue above isn't actually an accurate representation of what the anime is like most of the time :laughing: I started watching it out of curiosity about all the buzz about that new swimming anime. I thought it would be mostly fanservice for the ladies, but at least with great animation and maybe it started out that way but I'm happy it has turned into something more than that! It gets unexpectedly emotional and full of heart. Wonderful slice-of-life kind of series with just the right amount of humor and kokoro-grasping.

I'm glad I got my bromodachis I'm not sorry to watch it and that they wanted to cosplay it too! More pictures coming up! Some of the sillier ones that don't quite fit in here, I'll just put on my Facebook page :pointr: www.facebook.com/Jin.behindinf… so feel free to follow me there too!

I imagine Gou during one of their after-school convenience store visits, huddling the swim club boys together for a team photo as part of her usual documentation and also to "accidentally" send to her brother. Maybe she's also telling them, "Aim high! If you show everyone how great you are, maybe they'll even get you to endorse sports drinks one day!" Makoto humors her, Nagisa thinks it's a great idea and barely stops his excited frolicking for the photo, Rei is already practicing his signature pose, and Haruka is having none of it. Just another day with the Iwatobi Swim Club.

:icondolphinplz::iconpectoral-fins::iconpengyplz::iconbutterflyplz:
Best swim club everrrrrr who let that butterfly in the water


This is also a slice of life for us, as part of the reason we went to the convenience store is that we had been shooting all day and realized we haven't stopped for refreshments yet. After we got this photo, Miguel chugged down his bottle of Gatorade before I could even open mine. :lol:

Haruka Nanase, Makoto Tachibana, Nagisa Hazuki, Rei Ryugazaki and Rin Matsuoka all by me ^^;
Group cosplay, forever alone style! :laughing:

I put this together to serve as the header for my basic cosplay eye makeup and characterization guide:
How I cosplayed the cast of Free! sort-of-tutorialGroup cosplay, forever alone style! Yeah, that's all me.
In this post, I'll get into how I did each one!
Intro, and some bad old pictures
For those of you who have the patience to read for some extra info!
When I started cosplaying, I didn't think makeup was such a major part of it. I was so hesitant to even put eyeliner because I'd think, "This character is a guy, I shouldn't look like I'm wearing makeup!" And I guess I was silly enough to think I looked enough like the characters I chose without doing anything to my face? :lol:
I can't find more pictures of my really old cosplays (which is just as well, hahah) from the time I didn't want to use makeup apart from these:
I cosplayed as Haku from Naruto. I don't remember wearing any makeup for this. It doesn't show too well on these pictures but I saw some others where the natural redness of my lips made it look like I was wearing lipstick even if I wasn't. I felt it made me look more feminine than I should. Haku is still a guy after al


I've been doing these trial cosplays to prepare for putting together a new panel presentation on cosplay makeup and characterization that I'll be doing overseas. I figured that showing myself as different characters from a single series would be an amusing way to illustrate how angles, expressions and makeup can help one person look different as they depict different characters. Here's what I've done for the anime, Free!

I'm going to re-shoot to get better quality photos for my more detailed tutorial on my panel but I hope the guide helps! :)

This was really fun to do, and I plan on trying it with other anime series as well! Comment if there's a series you'd like to suggest! :D

:pointr: Haru and Rin outfit references

After watching Free! episode 10, ~hakuku and I were talking about how we own clothes that are very similar to what Haru and Rin were wearing on the flashback scene. What started out as a joke that we should try to look like 12 year-old kids turned into an actual shoot. Somehow we made it happen, even if we live in different continents :lol:

We're trying out an anime screencap treatment for this photo sequence. Although this exact scene wasn't in the episode, we felt like providing some establishing shots before getting into the actual reenactment. Please stay tuned for the rest!

Iwatobi Swim Club cosplay shoot outtakes!When my friends and I first heard of "that swimming anime" called Free!, this is pretty much what we expected:
Not that there's anything wrong with that hahah, but all we were expecting was to be able to laugh at how exploitable and full of fanservice this show could be because swimming would require everyone to be half-naked. Although it started out that way, the more episodes we watched, the more we realized...
We were wrong. So wrong.
What we got was a heartwarming coming-of-age story with endearing characters and interesting dynamics. It spoke of friendship and learning your self-worth and figuring out what drives you forward.
I'd write more about how I feel about it but it would take up too much time and space over here, so here are a couple of posts that have already done the job well:

I wanted to take a bit of time to greet you guys before everyone is away doing their Christmas or non-denominational holiday things! Let's enjoy the company of our friends and families and eat a lot!

I also would like to thank the opportunity to thank everyone for their love and support all year around! :thanks:

"I quit swimming."

From that heartbreaking scene in Free! Episode 10. The cinematography in the anime was quite beautiful so we wanted to do our own take on it through our cosplay photos.

I also shared our screencap references + comparison on Facebook :pointr: www.facebook.com/Jin.behindinf…

The new recruits of the Scouting Legion get up to a rude awakening from Lance Corporal Levi. It's cleaning time!

Shout out to Studio Boheme where we had our SnK boots custom-made! Check them out if you want your own. They do international orders!

Special thanks to Fernwood Gardens!

As I had written about a while back, my friends and I felt that maybe it was time to finally accept print requests as a means of being a fundraiser after the devastation of parts of our country from Typhoon Haiyan. We had been setting up these elaborate photoshoots recently just for fun and out of our love for the series we cosplay, but an opportunity has presented itself for us to turn them into something more meaningful.

And now our store is up! :target: tuxteam.storenvy.com/

Profits of our print sales will go to Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts by the Philippine Red Cross and rebuilding the affected areas by Architecture for Humanity.

Eren, Mikasa... We've come so far from where we were as kids. In the past few years, we've had to learn that we can never tell who we might lose forever with every new day. I'm glad I can be useful as a strategist, although this role makes me even more painfully aware of the dangers of this world we live in. Still, I hope that it's not too much to wish that at least the three of us will always be together.

We would also like to thank some shops that helped us a lot with our costumes! Hopefully they can make your cosplay lives a little easier as well, hahah!

:bulletred: Studio Boheme
We had our boots custom-made at Studio Boheme. Finding accurate boots was frustrating for us, so we decided to try having them made. Much to our delight, the people at Studio Boheme were actually familiar with Shingeki no Kyojin! They were awesome to work with, and our boots came out excellent! Check them out if you need your own SnK boots, any sort of custom leather things for cosplay, or even apparel for everyday life.

:bulletred: Den Den Style
Our jackets were made by our friends at Den Den Style! They have the most accurate SnK jackets in structure and color that we've seen anywhere so we had to have our jackets made by them!

We made our harnesses by ourselves from scratch. Here's a look at the unfinished sets :pointr: www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbi… a frustrating learning experience, hahah! The more time we spent trying to make them and wear them, the more we realized how impractical and senseless the design actually is. We're still working on improving them for aesthetics and comfort. We're also in the process of making our 3DMG. If you're interested, I post costume progress photos and photoshoot outtakes on my Facebook page:

Our team wore these cosplays to a con a few weeks ago and people were shocked I had chosen to be Mikasa. Hahah! What can I say, she's got balls and I appreciate her character. Also nobody else wanted to be Mikasa and I was the one with the correct height in proportion to everyone else so I took one for the team. She turned out to be a fun character to portray despite her usual stoic demeanor. I guess you'll see in the other photos I'll be posting from our shoot! I hope you'll look forward to them!
