A cosplay jacket I made for Nagisa Hazuki from the swimming anime Free! The characters wear a track jacket as part of their swim team uniform. Nagisa is a short blonde boy, but I am a girl (I’m just cosplaying a boy).
This was a bit of a challenge as I have never color blocked or used ripstop, but I think the jacket turned out really well for my first ever track jacket. Everyone who has seen the jacket is really pleasantly surprised to see I made it myself.
I used ripstop nylon for the outer shell and lined it with athletic mini mesh.
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
