Summer is coming and in our country we got some nice beach cosplay event coming at July which got me thinking. Could it be possible to crossplay as I-168 (imuya) from Kantai Collection? I have never tried wear anything like her outfit before so I need advice before I start planning anything.

My other option is crossplay character which wears more clothes like Yuudachi or Shigure but beach involves water so I don't know how fun it is swim in those...

So do anyone got any experience water themed cosplay? At least Kancolle seems perfect for this type of event. If you Google for it a lots of Kancolle cosplayers end up in water.

Examples:

Water themed cosplay events are really rare I wish there would be more of them. :)

I don't see why not! The standard crossplaying methods would apply, you just need to make sure it'll all hold when you swim. (IE, if you do a false chest, make sure it won't float; seal your makeup REALLY well, etc.)

Stars is definitely right about the waterproofing... Make sure that ALL of your makeup is waterproof. Also, the issue with a couple of these is their lack of coverage downstairs. Therefore, I'd recommend going with a character that has a skirt. As far as the ability to swim, don't worry about it! You can swim very easily in outfits like those as long as they're made of lightweight, stretchy material (like the kind swimsuits are made of). :) From these selections, I'd go with Shigure.
