Hi I'm Arciel, an artist and cosplayer. This is a personal blog as well as a semi-artblog? I spam a lot on my Free! time.

Currently a Free! blog, and RinRei is my OTP!

If there's a Rin, there's a Rei.

Hehe, yes they are the same height! 177cm as I recall… xD

You cut your hair yourself? Why are you so amazing with stuff? I can barely cut my bangs properly lol orz. Can I ask what hair dye did you use? For science :))) you look so pretty!

OHM thanks >/////< I started cutting my hair myself coz salons tend to cut my hair too short, especially my bangs. I like my bangs beautiful and perfect— /shot 

I usually start cutting my bangs from the middle then work my way to the sides. Just take thin chunks of hair (don’t pull on it too hard xD) then cut it a a few cm longer than desired length. This way, it will be easier to follow along it and also lessens mistakes. Don’t worry if it’s not straight at first, the allowance is there to serve its purpose. ;3

For my red hair, I used Syoss. It comes with a bottle of developer, a tube of desired color paste, conditioner & disposable gloves. I searched for other brands with a brighter red but found none available that time so I took the Syoss Dark Ruby Red instead. It’s my first time using this brand but I think it worked pretty well. I already had light hair so the color worked fine. For black hair though, I’m not sure if it will work.

If you want lighter colors (like blonde, pink, orange), Japanese brands like Palty works nicely. It’s a little expensive though. And there’s the trouble of bleaching first…. >v<;

I had to learn how to cut hair/wigs, apply makeup, sew, make weapons & armors myself to lessen cosplay expenses LoL it’s actually pretty fun! But it’s true that there’s bound to be trouble and mistakes at first but it lessens when you practice often. xD

If your hair really looks like that, I love it to bits

Seriously, what is time management?

I dont know if this is relevant since it's not actually Free!related but Eri Kitamura will be releasing a song at the end of October with the title "Rinrei/凛麗". While it's not exactly RinRei/怜凛... it's still Rinrei, right?

Yep, it’s Rinrei alright!

I found this cute samezuka guy in the background, isn’t he cute?

The Samezuka Swim Club Retirement Tradition has been on Ai’s mind since he became captain… Keep those muscles at work, Ai-chan and you’ll eventually get them Perfect Body! xD

He didn’t even had the chance

Hmmm., kimmykoosh inspired me to write this somehow.

Just imagine an AU where Rin and Rei are already 5 years in their relationship, Rei proposed beautifully (surprise!). Everything was going smoothly, their wedding’s within a week, and they both just can’t contain their excitement.

In that week, Rin woke up with a cold sweat. He didn’t know what was wrong, but dread crept up to him when he heard the frantic knocking and banging from his door. When he opened it, Gou hugged him tightly, her eyes were red and puffy, tears still streaming from them.

"Onii-chan…R-Rei-kun…he’s…"

Rin couldn’t describe the feeling that suddenly dropped on him. He’s stomach churned, he felt he was punched. Gou was scaring him. What about Rei? He’s coming home from his business trip, right? The dread he was feeling strengthened, his throat felt dry. He slowly pulled away from Gou and gave her a nervous smile.

"Hey, Gou, stop acting like that. You’re freaking me out. What about Rei? Did he come home already without telling me? That nerd’s gonna pay for that. Tsk." Rin said trying to calm his sister.

Gou looked at him, her eyes were giving off different emotions; sadness, grief, and a tiny bit amount of pity, then looked away. That look scared him more.

"O-Oi, Gou, answer me…" She didn’t look at him, she just stared at the wall still crying.

Rin searched for his phone, he’ll just contact Rei, and then everything will be fine. Just hearing that smooth voice will calm him down. When he looked at his phone, there were 25 missed calls and 30 messages. He opened the most recent one, it was from Rei’s mother.

'Rin, it's about Rei, he's gone.'

Rin dropped his phone. No. This isn’t true. They must be joking. He bet Rei thinks this is a funny joke. He lets out a strained laugh, his body shaking. He was crying, his body unconciously sat down. This isn’t true. THIS ISN’T TRUE.

"Gou, please tell me Rei’s coming home! Please tell me his coming home."

Gou walked to her brother and hugged him. Rin hanged on to her as if he was his only lifeline.

"Onii-chan, I’m so-sorry. Rei-kun’…-gone, he was in a car accident this morning. The driver was drunk."

After hearing that, Rin’s mind went blank. How? Why?

"No! You’re lying! Stop it." Rin wailed. His heart couldn’t take it. He doesn’t want to believe that the person he loved would be taken away from him. He didn’t even say his ‘I love you’, he didn’t even had the chance to say goodbye.

I hope this was alright. OTL

THIS IS NOT ALRIGHT.

;A;

So I somehow misread that as 'Matsuoka-Rei' and all I could think about going off that picture was that Rin and Rei announced their engagement and the two families got together to celebrate-I can't even with those two butterfly dorks skjxnsnxkucshdnkd (As always I love your art! :D)

HAHAHAHA! “Matsuoka Rei” has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? Truth is… this is like a continuation of this.

Sooooo.. what you thought was actually pretty close to what I had in mind while drawing that picture lol Rin and Rei dating each other is completely accepted by the whole Matsuoka and Ryugazaki family.. I think the Matsuokas would support Rin and the same goes for the Ryugazakis with Rei. They are like each other’s emotional-pillar and would make a very great couple! Everyone would also get along really well and it won’t be awkward at all! >u</

Ahhhh… Wouldn’t that be nice? It would be a very big butterfly family! <3

(And thank you so much! Sorry if I’ve only been giving you guys lazy sketches.. I’ve been quite busy. Hopefully I can finish work and deadlines so I can go back to giving full-colored arties! Thanks again!)
