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.

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 :)

Thanks so much! I was really conscious of this one because It's all about looks and I don't really feel confident about my looks D:

Wow! I've found a few of your pictures from tumblr, i didn't know you have a dA, now i can fave! This is just the best Haru cosplay i've ever seen, down to...everything! LOL but i mainly love how his hair is just lose and let the breeze takes his bangs, looks very natural.

I so have to laugh because of all those fangirls who're drolling and fangasmn right here.. it's quiet funny XD

But they're all right: You are awesome and hot.
It's just rare to find a guy who looks good during cosplaying (I'm from Austria so I can say that.. haha |D") and the Free!-boys are a bunch of muscular boys with hard abs and great bi-/triceps (hello there, Gou.. *whimp*) so it wouldn't fit that much if the cosplayer wouldn't look quiet like that.
I hope you get what I mean because I don't know right now how to explain in other words.. Dx

But what I want to say is: You are one awesome Haruka.. what I can see also IC.
I hope you'll find your friends/Team members.. especially Rin to bitch around >D

Aww haha thank you for such an awesome comment!
I'm really flattered and happy to hear.

Haha it is a bit hard to balance cosplay with everything else, maybe that's why.
I''m lucky because I work as a gym instructor so I exercise every day.

I hope I can find a team to cosplay with too haha.

Aaaah I wondered what you'll do exactly.
That's pretty awesome. :D

There have to be more Free!-Fans in Australia too, right? D:
Are they just shy to come out? :/

But I'm looking forward to see more of your Free!-Cosplays.
And I also hope you'll find your team/rivals one day ;D

Amazing, just awesome. This photo just radiates Haru's personality. And a cosplay only costing 0$?! I am envious of you sir, i applaud in your direction

Thanks so much.
I was afraid the entire way through whether I was able to pull off this character.
I'm not the most cool person.. and Haru is really... cool... haha

I bet you can cosplay a lot of guys since you have abs XD

I only have a few options since i'm a girl >_<

Anyways, nice cosplay!

But no no. I know what you mean.
I'm sure you suit a lot I characters too!
I'm just lucky I'm working hard to be fit, and it lets me suit some of these characters :)

Im thinking of doing Ciel Phantomhive, or Alois Trancy. I can always play as the female version though. Many of my favorite characters tend to be guys so, I guess I have to go get a vest or something to cover me up.

Im skinny, and can't gain weight. So I can't play as someone athletic, I can mostly play as someone young since they don't have abs and aren't "fit".

It was just a pair of pants and I sewed purples lines on top lol.

Nice shape bro your workout really shows. I think overall it was good and the worried looks is understandable. You're probably just not use to doing this kind of thing maybe. Nothing scarring about this and I'm glad you had fun that is what matters. :thumbsup:
