I'm super super excited because I'm going to cosplay Rei with a couple of friends who are being Nagisa and Rin. We're doing a genderbend group, which I'm usually iffy about because I'm not big on genderbends, but I found THE MOST AMAZING SPEEDO one piece bathing suit to use for Rei. So, I bought that, and some red glasses, and next is to just get the Iwatobi swim club jacket and the wig, which I plan on styling in a sort of over-the-shoulder loose braid. q_q I'M SO PUMPED OMG. If anyone has any thoughts or suggestions, please let me know <3

im really iffy on genderbends too because some of them that i have seen dont look like a lot of effort was put into them, however at otakon I did see one group of genderbent girls who were all wearing one piece bathing suits with the stripes painted on (and i think the rei had butterflies) and i thought that was genius and they did a great job!

i think your bathing suit is perf though uwu good luck!

Wow schmemy that swimsuit is TOO perfect ^^

I saw that group at Otakon too and am totally going to push my girl friends to do a genderbend Free! group with me. c.c;; Plus I would just walk around wearing the Iwatobi jersey whenever even though I don't do anything vaguely related to sports. 83

Ahh thank you guys :> I'm really excited for this cosplay! Not to mention it'll be nice because I live in Florida and it is so freaking hot here haha. I really wish I could've seen that Otakon group!

I got the base materials for my swim outfit!Rin now. As in, a pair of leggings and a black sweatjacket. Now I just need a red textile marker and a bit of white sweater material. Made the templates to print onto the jacket as well. Sorta confused with the little Samezuka symbol in the front.. On eBay made jackets and what I've seen on others doesn't quite match up with the only clear official antwork I could find. Makes me wonder: Were the cosmakers mistaken or maybe the artwork was sloppy?

Hey guys, I'm planning a tentative Rei cosplay in his palace guard outfit shown in the ending. Does anyone know any methods or dealing with the chest area as a girl? I don't want it to look tacky like... Just slapping on a skin-coloured shirt, etc. If there's no way around it I may have to abandon the idea but I am just so in love with the outfit and the prop that I'd love to make it.

If you're brave enough, you could fashion tape the edges of the shrug thing so it covers your breasts? Or, you could make it so the shrug actually fastens, I don't think anyone would really mind. Not really sure what to suggest other than that, haha

I'm using sports tape in a white color to match the jacket for my Nagisa, but there are nude sports tapes that could work for open shirt binding.

My jacket came in today, I think I still need to work on my wig a bit but my last thing I need is shoes. Does anyone have ideas for that?

Question: where is everyone getting their swim jackets? I've seen several different sources and I'm curious about which ones are good quality.

I'm with Shana05; I see a bunch on eBay and while a lot of them are the same I noticed there are 2 distinct ones where one has a white zipper up the front while the other is dark blue, and then the IWATOBI type font is slightly different on the back. (Also the red little crest on the chest varies slightly, although I have yet to see one that is exactly the same as in the anime)

To those of you who bought your jersey jackets online, care to share some information? ^^
