My next cosplay is going to be Rin Matsuoka from the anime ‘Free!’ (screenshot on left). So, because I like my cosplay to be as perfect as possible, I started looking up traditional Arab clothing. I followed many keywords while trying to find a look similar to Rin’s outfit. Eventually, I Google’d images for “traditional Jordanian clothing” and on the first line of results showed the image on the right. It is a painting titled ‘Arab Sheikh Smoking’ painted by Emile Prisse d’Avennes. I was blown away, and I wondered how many other ‘Free!’ fans have realized this.
