Wow! Cool! I got the Snorlax design♪
The lenticular design makes the pattern change depending on which direction you are looking at it from. So you can actually feel the power of Hakaikosen when you look at it! It’s one size fits most. And here’s what it looks like on me. I’m 150cm tall so I hope that gives you some perspective on the fit. I’ll definitely be wearing it this summer! (lol)
