Free! Haruka - Summer Club by AmenoKitarou Free! Haruka - Summer Club by AmenoKitarou

This is where "Costume Notes" usually go... but this time... WHAT COSTUME???
So I'll talk a bit about the shoot.

So my friends have joked about it for a while. I decided to make it happen.
I snipped up a pair of leggings and sewed some lines, pinned together a spare wig and off I went. Production cost $0...
We went to shoot at the pool in the Sports and Aquatic Centre where I work...
I don't think I have ever been as conscious about the stares I was getting from bypassers as I was in this shoot... probably because I was half naked... probably because it was a pool and we've got umbrellas and lighting gear set up everywhere... probably because it was MY WORK PLACE... oh god.

This shot in particular was done by splashing some water droplets onto a piece of perpex in front of the camera to get the sparkling water drops. Extra, extra cheesy. :iconhurrplz:

In the end these photos turned out quite nice... I mean, they're just of me half naked, and I'm a little self conscious of how I look here, I hope these pictures don't scar anybody's eyes... but this was really fun.

Please enjoy :)

I think the only way you could scar my eyes is if I hit them on your rock hard abs o_o;

I don't know why you'd feel self conscious, dude. You have not only great muscle mass, but also great definition and cuts. Finding both together is rare outside of people who know what they're doing in the gym! :highfive:

Total props to you! I used to be a total gym nut (well, as much as you can be at home with one dumbbell, barbell, assorted 5 pound plates, and bodyweight movements), and got pretty muscular at one point. There's nothing quite like the pure rush of pulling weight. :D

So yeah, both as an artist who specializes in humans and anatomic accuracy, and as someone who's felt the pain of getting off the couch and going to do your fitness routine, I have a lot of respect for people who keep their bodies in tip-top condition.
