15 Easy Steps to Pull of a Ryoma Echizen Cosplay

Ryoma Echizen

Ryoma Echizen

Being that he's the main character, most people will certainly want to give Echizen Ryoma a try.

While there are numerous fans of Fuji and some of the other characters, they'll never equal the number of fanatical followers that Echizen has.

His unique and cocky personality almost seems to come with the territory. As one of the greatest young tennis talents that's come out of the Japanese school system in a while, you would think that Ryoma would be breaking under all the pressure.

Instead, he takes it in stride. If you want to try cosplaying as Ryoma, you'll need to keep in mind that he's both a laid back individual and an intense character under all circumstances.

1) Since so many things that Ryoma wears are similar to the rest of the Seigaku crew, you may want to try out cosplaying a few different individuals. If you've done a Prince of Tennis cosplay in the past, your current costume can probably be converted fairly easily.

2) While you probably already realize that Ryoma wears a hat, you may not have all of his motions down just yet. You'll need a little practice so that you can hold it the same way that he does.

3) Ryoma's shorts are sometimes differently colored then the rest of his crew. That makes sense to set him apart, but it does mean that you might want to invest in darker colored ones if you wanted to give him a try.

4) Ryoma's hair might be a bit of a problem for those with light colors, but individuals who have darker colored hair can probably get away with just combing it in the direction that his lays in.

5) Those who have lighter colored hair will probably have to resort to wearing a wig, though it should be easy to comb one in the right direction. Several models already more or less ship with the right appearance, so there shouldn't be any problem with that either.

6) Acquiring an appropriate jacket could pose a problem, but many real tennis jackets do match the white and red model that Ryoma prefers. Since the Prince of Tennis is a fairly realistic series, some of the more onerous demands made on cosplayers have been fortunately removed.

7) Ryoma often carries his jacket behind him on a finger, and drapes it over his back. He also has a tendency to carry it over his head. Either of these poses could be great for photographs, especially if you wanted something to put on an online convention gallery.

8) If you're really excited about having someone take photos, you might want to try out the same sorts of poses that players have in tennis magazines. Hardcore cosplayers might want to pose for a camera held by someone dressed like Fuji.

9) Studying some actual tennis grips can be extremely useful. If you're not really into tennis, you might pose sort of strangely and tennis fans will point that out to you. Of course, swinging a racket with poor form is dangerous anyway, so the benefits are actually two fold.

10) Sweatbands can be a good idea as well if you're playing Echizen when he's on the team, but don't go overboard. He usually only wears a single one on his wrist. Anything more can look a little ridiculous.

11) If you want, you could also do a cosplay in Echizen's school uniform or even his street clothes. He has a unique way of dressing regardless of which way you decide to tackle the problem.

12) While it's usually not hard to emulate the voice of a character, Echizen has a few different catchphrases that you might want to throw out there for effect now and again. This is true of a lot of characters from sports manga, but it's certainly a noticeable trait of his.

13) One interesting thing you could theoretically do for a convention is research schools in Japan, and then make realistic complaints about it from Echizen's perspective. After all, those boring academics have surely got to get in the way of interesting tennis matches.

14) You might already have some white socks and tennis shoes. If not, the socks shouldn't be too hard to acquire, but strangely enough getting a new pair of shoes might be the most expensive aspect of a Prince of Tennis cosplay.

15) Of course, you'll need to familiarize yourself with all of Echizen's aloofness by checking out the anime and manga. Collecting Prince of Tennis character goods is another great way to be sure that you have the character down before you actually give your cosplay a try.
