And yes I'm pretty sure out of all the characters, we're going to see cosplays for Izaya and Shizuo most frequently for this series. I'm hoping to see more Celtys at least though!
Yah, I'd love some advice of how to approach it, and being a college student cheap is a beautiful word to me, not quite a lovely as free though~
Hahaha, that does sound so fun (the 'ripping' your sign from the ground)!

Well it just so happens I am a college student as well (though not for long since its my last semester@3@) so my method should be perfect for you haha xD

The sign is made out of pvc pipe and DOLLAR STORE foam board.. lol. The thing about my sign though is when I painted it, I didnt add gesso to the foam board (i had no time to put on x amount of coats of gesso) so when it dried, the foam board curled and cracked a bit. For Shizuo, this is good 8D well it is IMO, but if you want a nice, clean sign then definitely put some coats of gesso over the foam board before painting.

So like I said, this is the super cheap method (i put masking tape around the edges to make them smoother since i couldn't gesso) so really all it was was cutting the sign out, paint (i used metallic red and pearl while FolkArt paint and aluminum spray paint... since mine was a stop sign), and then glue the sign to the pvc pipe (im pretty sure any kind of strong adhesive will work)... it was windy outside where I was so at times I thought the sign was gonna fly off the pipe so keep that possible weather condition in mind.

and that concludes my super cheap college student stop sign construction... haha

Oh wow, that is a pretty cheap method! And I can get the
supplies over spring break, because I'm at the mercy of the
bus system here....
Also congrats on your last semester of college!

Dude! Today I was like, "Hmmm...what can I do with this liquid leather unitard I've got lying around?...And, hmmm...what can my boyfriend do with that white doctor's coat he's got hanging in his closet...?"

And it hit me. We'd be a GREAT Shinra and Celty!
Seriously.
He's got dark hair and glasses (and a doctor's coat.)
I AM Irish (well...my grandfather's from Ireland...does that count?) I even look like Celty when she's got her head.
Though I really want to put on, like, a black dance hood with the words "OH SNAP! I ain't got no head!" written on it...

It's like this cosplay was sent by God or something.
I'm doing a bunch of other cosplays, but with any luck I'll be able to do it at A-Kon 21 this year.

I have a few questions about casual! Mikado.

Reference:

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_DutRmuvhWN.../bscap0001.jpg

Does anyone know where I can find a jacket like such?

And can someone help me find a good base wig that is close to Mikado's? I have a big wig project for an upcoming con, so I want it to be as easy as possible.

@tsukeru
Ooh...go to Men's wigs at Cosworx, and look at those options. I think either wig would work for length. All you'd have to do is style them.

I'm having second thoughts about the unitard, dude. I've been toying with the idea of going with something shinier, like PVC or latex. I'm afraid I'll look too dominatrix-y.

So...
This (which I own already)?
http://www.riversedgedancewear.com/lilemoneunbt.html

Or this?

Price isn't a problem, btw.

@Flora88

Personally from all the references I see (all from the anime) her bodysuit isn't super shiny, actually I think it's quite matte. However the matte one does not have a zipper in the front. So it's one half dozen to the other (boy I'm a lot of help). However I'd say choose the one you feel most comfortable with, if you prefer one, then choose that one! It's better off than having to wear one you don't feel right in!

Oh, dude, I can totally just put the unitard on backward. Then the zipper would be in the front.

And you were very much help.

Anyone know what type of hat Kyohei wears? Cause I'm sure it has a particular name and I'm sure I can find it at a normal department store, but I can't think of what it is....

@Flora88: cool! Me and my sister had about the same idea, except that we don't have a unitard at home, but those links are a help already. IF she really wants to do Selty that is. XD

I've finished my Shinra last week and wore it yesterday at Made in Asia (in Brussels), but I might make an improved version since the labcoat I had lying around is a bit different from the one Shinra wears, but I didn't have time to order/make a new one. :3

*throws arms up into the air* I'm excited to know there's Durarara!! cosplayers now.
I want to cosplay as Shizzy-chan, Izaya, and Certy (carrying around her scythe would be amazing). Though, I'm not sure who I'm going to cosplay the soonest and which con. '___'
Can't wait to see your Drrr!! cosplays though!

My friend and I are planning on cosplaying Izaya and Shizuo sometime in the future. I myself haven't gotten too far in the series... So...

Could someone please point me in the direction of some good referance pictures for Shizuo?
