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!

Sunny shiny soda breeze spreads in my heart
It’s the same as the smell of sunlight

Thank you so much for going along with me
Though I’m sure you’ll say you didn’t do anything


The lines are from Nagisa's character song, Sunny Soda Breeze. Judging by his demeanor, I was expecting Nagisa's song to be just full of sparkles and cutesy things because I heard "sunny shiny" and "pikapika". When I really gave it a listen and paid attention to the lyrics, it turned out to be Nagisa singing about how happy he is to be with everyone, being especially thankful about his new bond with Rei and how he hopes to be a good friend as well. I actually got a little weepy JEEZ what is this series doing to my heart.

This photo that we captured during our Iwatobi Swim Club cosplay shoot reminds me of the song, especially with all the golden light. My friends make me feel the same sentiments as Nagisa too :cheese:

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 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…

When we were little, Makoto had two pet goldfish. They were given to him by an old fisherman whom he befriended.

One summer, Makoto lost this friend due to a big storm that sank the fisherman’s boat. Some time after, Makoto found his goldfish lifeless in their bowl despite his best efforts.

This probably hit him harder than it would others because of his role as an eldest brother, and as someone who is used to taking care of other people — myself included.

We’re in high school now, but he still makes time to put out flowers for the grave he made for his goldfish.

Makoto smiles for everyone and is always ready to lend a hand, but-

Even though he wouldn’t ask for it, I’m certain he needs someone to support him too sometimes.

I’m sorry, Makoto.

I’m not good with words, but I hope I can make you understand that you don’t have to handle everything alone.


Aah, right in the feel bads. I got a little carried away with the description due to reading High Speed!, the light novel prequel to Free!

:bulletblue: There's an additional frame for this photo series in my Tumblr post :pointr: behindinfinity.tumblr.com/post…

For these pictures, we touch on the darker and sadder side of our beloved swimming anime. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that there actually is more to it than the fanservice (and even that was handled in a humorous, sometimes almost satirical way). Apart from the great humor and beautiful animation, this anime had an unexpected amount of heart; something that my friends and I really came to love about it. We started watching because we thought we'd just laugh over the gratuitous fanservice, but we ended up having our hearts stolen by these endearing characters, and the strong messages on friendship which made us appreciate our own bonds more.

Sorry for stirring up sad emoceans! To make up for it, here is my journal post with our photo outtakes from this shoot:
Free! 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:

Oh come now. If you were a fan of mine for a while now, you would've seen something like this coming.
lmao okay well actually this was a request from my sister. We always watch the latest episodes of SnK & Free! together, so this idea just kinda...came together x'D

Had fun drawing this. If you guys want it, I can make the same crossover, but this time, vice-versa c:

:iconbutterflyplz::iconsaysplz: THIS IS NOT BEAUTIFUL!!! THERE IS NO BEAUTIFUL WAY TO EAT THIS! WHY DID YOU GIVE IT TO ME? I ALREADY SAID I DIDN'T WANT ANY!

:iconpengyplz::iconsaysplz: Rei-chan... I had no idea you were so bad at this. So that's why you never get ice cream with us. I just wanted to see what it feels like to have someone to eat split-and-share popsicles with. Is that what having a boyfriend is like? Like what Haru-chan and Mako-chan have!

:iconpectoral-fins::iconsaysplz: Haru, are you not looking at me because Rin said real men shouldn't make eye contact when eating food that are shaped like... these? If you're afraid Nagisa and Rei will think we're, y'know. That ship has sailed.

:icondolphinplz::iconthinksplz: This popsicle is pool-colored. But it doesn't taste like a pool.


HAHAH okay I got carried away with the imagined dialogue again. But sometimes these lines just pop into my head when I look at our pictures and I can't help writing them down :laughing:

Haru and Makoto are often shown eating these blue Ramune-flavored popsicles, so we thought it would be nice to have them in our shoot. We imagined Nagisa trying to share some with Rei, and in our minds this is how it would have gone. Frozen treats on sticks are not beautiful enough for Rei.

It is worth noting that the top photo didn't need much acting and the popsicle was messily melting on our Rei for real, and he was (fabulously) trying to keep it from dripping everywhere while our Nagisa watched him from the side with judgment.

"You’re the one who doesn’t understand! What dream? What future? It’s you who cares about all that! I’m not you!"
(Free! Eternal Summer Ep. 9)


:iconbehindinfinity: myself as Haruka Nanase
:camera: self-portrait


I JUST HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS FOR THIS SCENE
The expressions were beautifully drawn and also wow emotional decimation. Sounds like my favorite kind of cosplay shoot. Hahah, but seriously — it was such a turning point for Haru's character and in a painful way, it made him more relatable. We're finally getting into the heart of this coming-of-age story and I can't wait to see how it'll turn out.

On a more technical note, I enjoyed playing with the lighting for this one! Since I had planned a tight portrait shot with a lot of emphasis on the eyes, I didn't put on eyeliner so that it would look more natural. I relied on using my face muscles and the lighting to emphasize my features. It took me a lot of tries to get it all just right, but it was a great learning experience! I'm not used to making such serious and intense facial expressions, so I usually practice during self-portraits like this.

So we did a genderbend free cosplay group at PCC 2014! Our Haru and Mako ended up bailing so that's why we have 4 of us. Currently planning another photoshoot for AX with our Haru and another Mako. :) I'm very happy with the pictures we have right now though! We have so many great pictures, I'll be uploading quite a few within the next month. :D

Group 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 all, but it wasn't too bad because he's supposed to look like a trap. Still, I made a mental note then to do something about it when cosplaying manlier characters.

When I did Light Yagami from Death Note, I learned to use concealer and foundation powder to even out my skintone. I also used a skin-colored lipstick to neutralize the reddish color of my lips. I didn't really want to use eyeliner around this time. :laughing:

Death Note: Sunday Morning by behindinfinity

I think it was cosplaying Naruto that really got me to take makeup more seriously because he looks really different from how I naturally look. I had to wear a blond wig for the first time, so I didn't feel right with my black eyebrows. He has big eyes with a very pronounced shape so I had to try simulating that with eyeliner. And of course, the characteristic whisker markings on his face.

It depends on the character too, I think. I generally use more eyeliner and try to go for a really even complexion for anime characters to emulate the look of the 2D art without taking it too literally. But for movie/book cosplay, I take a different approach.

Take my Harry Potter cosplay, for instance. I kind of mixed the book descriptions for Harry with Daniel Radcliffe's depiction of him in the movies:

I skipped using concealer because Dan has pronounced eyebags, which works for Harry's character (being constantly troubled and tormented and trying to save the world and all). I also gave special attention to the eyebrows and tried to shape mine like Dan's. I often get asked about how I do my eyebrows.

I use a brush with stiff, angled bristles. I take whatever pigment I have on hand, such as eyebrow pencils or powdered eyeshadows in different colors, then use this to draw on my over my real eyebrows. This kind of brush makes it easy to control the shape and apply the pigment in a way that the edges aren't sharp so it looks more natural.

So that's probably a long enough intro for this post! Hahah! Bottom line: Makeup is cool because it helps you change the way you look. And that's part of what's fun about cosplay — Being able to transform yourself from the way you usually look.


I'm realizing now that I don't have a lot of "normal" photos but here's one of me with no makeup and no contact lenses, for the sake of comparison. (I'm nearsighted so those are my prescription glasses)


Free! Cosplay Challenge

One day I thought it'd be a fun exercise on flexibility to cosplay different characters from the same series, all by myself. It would be an amusing way to illustrate how angles, expressions and makeup can help one person depict different characters. Using only the wigs and clothes I have at home, I decided to try cosplaying the main characters of the anime, Free!

Haruka Nanase

His eyes are narrower and angle upwards more than the other characters.
His face is usually indifferent.

Here is myself as Haru

This is how I did the eye makeup, which is a little different from my usual style. Eyeliner makes such a big impact on giving your eyes a different shape.

I also chose a vibrant blue lens because Haruka has bright blue eyes that contrast with his dark hair. The lenses I used are the Ocean Blue Cosplay Lenses from Alice and Rabbit's Shop, where I get most of my lenses. :)

Here's a clearer shot of the lenses, and also a look at my eyes when they're lined differently.

I based the clothes I wore on one of Haruka's casual outfits. I'll be basing my Makoto look (coming up next) on this outfit here too.

Makoto Tachibana

Although his height is intimidating, he always has a kind look on his face. He has the classic "tareme" / droopy puppy dog eyes that indicate a gentle person.

Here's my take on Makoto. I didn't have a kitten like the one he's seen with but I do have a puppy.

I usually downplay my eye creases for cosplay, but this time I added some shading on top to emphasize them. I also drew my eyeliner downwards to mimic Makoto's eye shape.

The eyebrows were kind of an extra challenge for me since Makoto has really kind-looking eyebrows that curve upwards towards the center, while mine naturally angle downwards (which usually lead people to think I look mean). I kind of imagined Mako to have thick eyebrows so I rolled with that. I draw them extra thick on the top part near the center to fight against the downward curve of my real eyebrows. Then for the photos, I raised them up (like the way you would when you're surprised, hahah) to give a kinder facial expression. This also helped make my eye crease more visible.

The lenses I used are Emerald Green Cosplay Lenses. It's a nice leaf green shade that fits with Makoto's eyes.


Most other lenses that are opaque enough to show on my dark eyes are in a blue-green shade, like this one:

The pattern of this also looks like it would be better suited for a more intense and aggressive character. I don't know if most people would think I'm crazy for taking that into account, but I do like to consider the pattern when choosing contact lenses for a character.

I was looking for blue-green lenses for Eren Jaeger (from Attack on Titan) and this one had a good color but I don't think the flower pattern suits him all that much. Don't you agree? :lol:


Nagisa Hazuki

Resident shota, LOL. He's the smallest and youngest-looking of the bunch. Energetic sparkly personality.

This was very difficult for me. It's hard to be shota, bro. I struggled. And I kind of want to punch myself for making these faces. Doing this hurt me a little. Ahahahah! The way Nagisa acts is just really a stretch from how I actually am.

I made my cheeks look rounder with the way I smiled. I describe it as pushing my face meats up by giving a tight smile. This also made my upper lip look thinner, which I guess kind of works for Nagisa. I don't know if this will work for everyone, but the point is to observe how certain facial expressions affect the shape of your face, and use them to your advantage when you can. :D

I made the eyeliner rounder and softer at the outer edges. I used a pencil liner for the outer corners so I smudged it a bit for that softer look. I also put some highlighting pigments around the eyes for extra sparkly wide-eyed youthful uguu shota join-the-swim-club-or-I'll-cry feels. My descriptions are so technical and pro.

But okay, to elaborate properly (sort of) I think the highlights around the eyes helped a lot because it downplays the shadows on my face. If shadows make features look more sunken, then theoretically, highlights should do the opposite.

Nagisa's eyes are in a complicated sort of magenta shade. I compromised by using my Crystal Max Red Lenses. Although they are technically red, the shade is dark and the larger-than-usual size of these lenses gives the glowing crescent effect on the bottom of my irises. The halo effect comes out pink, so they worked okay for Nagisa. 

To explain the halo effect:

The coloring on the Crystal Max Red is semi-transparent, so it lets the white part show through a bit at the bottom. This is also why the lens diameter is important. I think the average diameter for irises are about 14mm. The lenses I used for Haruka and Makoto are 14.2mm, so they're only slightly enlarging. These ones are 14.8mm in diameter.


Rei Ryugazaki

He has somewhat rectangular-shaped eyes and is easily disgruntled, hahah. He normally has a serious look about him (which doesn't reflect what he's actually like).

Apart from the eyeliner style, I didn't have to change much for Rei, so this section will be relatively short.

Here's an outline of the eyeliner shape. I extended it past the normal length of my eyes. It feels a little weird at first but it looks fine from a moderate distance.

It's kind of like what I did on the upper left photo:
(And here are other examples as well of how I line my eyes for different cosplays)

The lenses I used are Crystal Max Violet. They have a nice lavender shade that fits with Rei's eye color. Again, my eyes are very dark brown (which looks black when not in direct sunlight) and they show up well on me.


Lastly, Rin Matsuoka

I usually end up cosplaying the protagonist, so I was excited and anxious to attempt Rin, who is completely different from characters I'm used to portraying.

Jin as Rin. Hahah! It looks like I have Rin's school uniform, but that's actually the top I used for my Ulquiorra cosplay!

If you're wondering about the teeth: Those are my natural teeth. They're pretty strangely shaped (but I like them) and I'm just not used to smiling with them, but I decided to show them off this time because it's character-appropriate!


See? They are pointier along the sides so I angled my face so they'd be more visible.

Look at all those scribbles! I did some crazy things to change the look of my eyes. I drew my eyeliner extra thick to cover up my natural crease, then I drew on a fake crease which to me looked more like Rin's. I also added some shading between the crease and my eyebrows to make it appear more realistic. You have to pay special attention to how they look at certain angles and expressions though, especially if you are posing for photos. Notice how in the left photo on the two pictures of me as Rin, the eye creases look a lot smaller than on the right where I raised my eyebrows a bit and shot from a lower angle.

Half my eyebrows here are drawn on, because I wanted them to angle upwards to look extra mean. I used Kryolan eyebrow wax to flatten half my eyebrows then piled concealer on top to hide them. Then I drew on the other half with a cream pigment from my Ben Nye wheel, using an angular eyebrow brush.


The lenses I used for Rin were the limited edition red prescription lenses from A&R. I chose these instead of the red ones I used for Nagisa because it's a brighter red, which is like Rin's eye color. The diameter is also smaller, so it gives my eyes more of a mean look compared to Nagisa's big sparkly eyes.


Closing notes

Now, I've never been properly trained in makeup or anything like that, so this is all just coming from someone who learned to use makeup by thinking of them as drawing materials. (Eyeliners are like ink brushes or colored pencils, eyeshadow is like chalk pastel, lip pigments are paints, etc.) It is questionable if my methods are correct, but I just wanted to share how I go about things and I thought it could serve as a guideline for you guys to think of how to manage it for yourselves. :)

These techniques will also work differently for people with different eye or face shapes so it's best for you to experiment on your own face or with your friends. It's fun!

The amount of makeup you use, and how you want to interpret features on anime characters is entirely up to you. Everyone's got different preferences. Like some people find drawing the eye crease weird, but it works for some people. But it's all really up to you! :D You just have to try things and find a look that you feel comfortable with. And don't judge yourself until you've got your wig and everything on and have finished the entire look, because I certainly felt like a fool in the middle of doing some of these. By that I mean Rin

It was a fun challenge to take on, and I hope to try it with other series!

:iconbutterflyplz::iconsaysplz: THIS IS NOT BEAUTIFUL!!! THERE IS NO BEAUTIFUL WAY TO EAT THIS! WHY DID YOU GIVE IT TO ME? I ALREADY SAID I DIDN'T WANT ANY!

:iconpengyplz::iconsaysplz: Rei-chan... I had no idea you were so bad at this. So that's why you never get ice cream with us. I just wanted to see what it feels like to have someone to eat split-and-share popsicles with. Is that what having a boyfriend is like? Like what Haru-chan and Mako-chan have!

:iconpectoral-fins::iconsaysplz: Haru, are you not looking at me because Rin said real men shouldn't make eye contact when eating food that are shaped like... these? If you're afraid Nagisa and Rei will think we're, y'know. That ship has sailed.

:icondolphinplz::iconthinksplz: This popsicle is pool-colored. But it doesn't taste like a pool.


HAHAH okay I got carried away with the imagined dialogue again. But sometimes these lines just pop into my head when I look at our pictures and I can't help writing them down :laughing:

Haru and Makoto are often shown eating these blue Ramune-flavored popsicles, so we thought it would be nice to have them in our shoot. We imagined Nagisa trying to share some with Rei, and in our minds this is how it would have gone. Frozen treats on sticks are not beautiful enough for Rei.

It is worth noting that the top photo didn't need much acting and the popsicle was messily melting on our Rei for real, and he was (fabulously) trying to keep it from dripping everywhere while our Nagisa watched him from the side with judgment.

The lines are from Nagisa's character song, Sunny Soda Breeze.

When I really gave it a listen and paid attention to the lyrics, it turned out to be Nagisa singing about how happy he is to be with everyone, being especially thankful about his new bond with Rei and how he hopes to be a good friend as well. I actually got a little weepy JEEZ what is this series doing to my heart.

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

This weekend my parents were away, so we went to my parents house to make use of the pool to do a Free! photoshoot and video shoot!
Despite the pool being pretty cold when we finally got around to jumping in it, this was a really amazing day and lounging around a pool while also cosplaying was a pretty boss experience XD

We had a short commercial for the series and short write ups to go off of for this, but in a way I think that made it more fun because we got to really flesh out the characters according to our own extrapolations. Can't wait to see the series when it debuts this summer!

Our Free! cosplay video can be seen here [link] :)

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!

From our photo/video shoot for Free! at Aki Con. I was SO PLEASED that this photoshoot actually ended up happening and that everyone showed up. We did it at 8am because we wanted to use the pool before it got too crowded. I was unsure as to whether everyone would make it since shooting at 8am more or less meant that people had to be up at 7am which can be hard to do after the Friday night of a con XD to my surprise everyone was up bright and early and we got a full shoot done. I WAS SO HAPPY AMWLDJLEWHLDHA

The only issue was that it was really cold... apparently I was turning blue by the end of it but it WAS SO WORTH IT
I can't thank everyone enough for taking part and for showing up to such an early shoot :)

There will be a skit posted on our Youtube account: www.youtube.com/user/fightingd… that was filmed after this shoot, it should be up inn the next few weeks!
