The Japanese design firm Lightair announced that three types of wetsuits inspired by the plugsuits in the anime film Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance will go on sale in Japan. The zipper-less wetsuits will match the outfits worn by the EVA-01, EVA-00, and EVA-02 pilots (Shinji, Rei, and Asuka, respectively) and will sell for 163,800 yen (about US$1,985, tax included).
Last October, singer, voice actress, and manga creator Shoko Nakagawa ("Shoko-tan") modeled a wetsuit based on the Evangelion character Mari's plugsuit on Japanese television. Also last year, drivers of Run'a Entertainment's "Evangelion RT-01 apr Corolla" team wore uniforms patterned after Shinji's plug suit to match their Evangelion-themed car in the Super GT300-class grand touring championship series.
