Evangelion Plug Suit-Based Wetsuits for Sale in Japan
posted on by Egan Loo
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.
