Anybody wanna cosplay tennis with me?
That’s what I’ve been asking people ever since I came up with an idea for tennis wear version of cosplays when I saw some “abs” T-shirts at Walmart, like this one of the Incredible Hulk’s upper body. When I saw those short sleeve T-shirts that obviously can’t be part of a cosplay since they don’t cover the entire arm, I immediately thought of making shorts that would function in the same way. That is, they’d be the truncated lower body portion of the cosplay, and should be suitable to wear to play tennis that I would wear them to.

I finally got pictures of me taken in these shorts in the post linked here.
Last summer, a lady at St George’s tennis club gave me an old brown T-shirt with the Bjorn Borg kneeling victory celebration silhouette in white logo (see pic). I guess she thought I could fit it but it was too big for me, so I got this idea to use that logo and fabric in a pair of tennis shorts highlighting that logo. They’re be like long beach or basketball shorts except I’d use them for tennis given that Bjorn Borg tennis player logo. Like my trademark tennis shorts, they’d also only have one pocket opposite my serving side to hold balls, since the serving arm always has the racquet in hand.
This Star Trek original series cotton pattern was probably made for pajamas, but they work well for tennis shorts… and some pretty interesting tennis shorts at that. 🙂
