I realize I don't usually do simple close-up portraits, but I enjoyed the clarity of this shot. It shows the layered styling I did on the wig, and how I lined my eyes to get them closer to Haru's eye shape. I also tried my best to capture Haru's facial expression. Or lack of it.

For our usual antics (and pictures where you can actually see the outfits), 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.

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:

Are you sure you didn't pull out the real Haruka out of the naime and convince him to pose by using Mackerel and an hour in an amazing pool?
