Summer Suggestions

I am looking for some ideas for comfortable and cool summer cosplays to do. I realized that most of costumes are not summer friendly and I really should try to avoid heat stroke this summer. So far the only ideas I have are Nami's dancing girl outfit from the Alabaster arc and Nico Robin's purple outfit when she's first introduced (both are from One Piece).

I am looking for both simple, that I might be able to make or find quickly for this summer and for more complex things to make down the road.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic is set in a Middle Eastern desert-esque region, so nearly all of those outfits are suited for hot weather!

Love Live has a lot of summery stuff too, ranging from swimsuits to short sleeved dresses/skirts, and plenty of outfits that show midriff.

Free! is literally swimsuits, that's about as summery as you get!

Most sports animes would also work-- Kuroko no Basuke, Haikyuu!!, Yowapeda, just to name a few.

Nami's default outfit would probably work too. Misty from Pokemon would be quick, easy, and heat-friendly, as would Hilda (the female trainer from Pokemon Black and White). I would also recommend Panty Anarchy (regular or angel form) from Panty and Stocking, Jinx from League of Legends, Asuna's Titania outfit from Sword Art Online, or Winry Rockbell from Fullmetal Alchemist.

Of course, you can never go wrong with the Nudist Beach getup from Kill la Kill. :P

You could make Asuka in this Evangelion Portraits outfit
