The Evangelion series spawned numerous anime, manga and video game franchises over the years, but I can honestly say this is the first time that it’s inspired a line of wet suits.
Created by Japan’s Lightair, these wet suits are based on the “plug suits” worn by Shinji, Rei and Asuka in the anime film Evangelion 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance.
Is it just me, or is the guy dressed as Asuka doing the Blue Steel pose from Zoolander? Personally, I wouldn’t be caught dead wearing one of these skintight suits in or out of the water, but if you’re a huge fan of the series with lots of money to spare, and aren’t at all self-conscious about showing off your junk or your cameltoe, they’re available for the low, low price of ¥163,800 (appx. $2000 USD).
Now don’t run out and buy all of them. Save some for your friends.
