The moment I met Shizuo, I knew it was love. :D
Anyways, since my friend and I (cosplay buddiessss) love Durarara!! we felt it was fitting to cosplay from it. I made both Shizuo and Izaya for the both of us.
We did a test run of these cosplays in Chicago.
VIDEOS of this cosplay:
My wig is a Five Wits wig, the one meant for Shizuo. It's a great color and style, I only need to trim up the bangs.
I am still trying to find the perfect pair for him, aka non-polarized blue ones of a weird angular shape. I have a pair of silver and blue, ultrapolarized sunglasses, and they look great, but not super-ultra-mega accurate.
I quickly sewed one up and put it on a ribbon to velcro around my neck.
Just a button down shirt from my brother's closet. I think I'm going to take it in in the arms and body so it's not as huge. It fits me, but it still makes me look really fat, so I'll make it a 'slim-fit' shirt.
Just a vest out of my closet. Shizuo's got this bartender formal vest thing going on, but it has a collar, which is not very common in men's vests that aren't halter-style. I might sew one that actually is tailored one day.
I feel so hardcore in this belt. It's a double row eyelet belt. I'm not even sure if he wears this kind of belt, but I saw it in a really well drawn fan art, and I really loved it. It's from a halloween store in town.
Pants out of my closet, but they fit me *too* well and make me look girly, so I'll be on the look out for baggier, more men's style pants.
I need height for Shizuo, for both the proportions that I want and the lines that I want, so I have these short ankle boots that are platforms that look really awesome and have these cool buckles, but they're not too crazy. "ZOMG platf0rms?!?" Yes, platforms. They look good.
American Spirit Cigarettes///
After searching for his cigs, apparently he uses American Spirit brand cigs. I made a box and drew up and printed out the design on it. Then filled it with fake cigs. Hopefully one day I'll get those fake smoking ones.
