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
