sailorstarsun as Gakuto Mukahi Hyotei's Gakuto Mukahi

 

Worn at: JTAF 2003 (San Francisco, CA), Yaoi-con 2003 (San Francisco, CA), Fanime 2004 (San Jose, CA), AX 2004 (Anaheim, CA)

Future appearances: To be determined...

 

I'd like to say this was an easy cosplay.  It's just a shirt and shorts, right?  WRONG!  I had to have a friend of a friend go all the Hell over Japan to find the Hyotei jersey (of course now they're easy to find...  .-_- ).  He had to have it ordered from a certain store and blah blah blah.  It was a bit difficult to get a hold of.  But I did eventually get it.  The wig was pretty easy to find; there were several common styles that would've worked just fine . . . it just took me a few weeks to decide which one I wanted to get.  ^^*  The only cutting I had to do was the bangs, because his are in an odd V shape instead of straight across.  Then I also had a little trouble getting shorts because they just don't sell them this time of year. ^^  (I was looking during late fall)  Then it occurred to me that, what better place to get tennis shorts than a sporting goods store?  ^^*  So once I figured that out I found 'em easy.  (actually, its a funny story that on the day I finally went out and got the shorts, I came home and found the jersey and wig had arrived on the same day!  ^^ )  Then grabbed up my racket (because I do actually play tennis ^-^ ) and tada!  ^_^  Hyotei's saucy little bitch!

I have, since the first wearing, also ordered the official Hyotei jacket, with "Mukahi" embroidered on the inside.  =3
