Yay! Erika! That would be awesome. But you could definitely go to the Fanime Con board and try to arrange a meetup! It totally worked for me with A-Kon.

I plan on cosplaying Shinra for CTcon, and possibly Otakon.

I hope you can do it for Otakon! I'm organizing a gathering in the Otakon board 8) So far we got a good number of people but more the merrier!

Though it won't be perfect because I only have two months and a limited budget.

Nor does there seem to be any Durarara cosplay gathering for my con. Makes me sad. Are any of you planning to go to Fanime Con?
I am going, but I wasn't planning on cosplaying Durarara for Fanime... but maybe I could get some of my friends to do it then. If not, you live in the San Francisco Bay Area-ish, yes? Do you think you will be going to SacAnime in September? Because my friends and I were planning on cosplaying DRRR then, and there is a Yumasaki in our group. Just sayin.

wo ho ho. i'll be there, too. ^__^

doing shizuo for anime central. perhaps i'll take him to sac-anime and fanime (if i make it to the latter, so close to anime central).

a friend is planning celty for anime central, though... and the helmet is a little labor intensive. she lives across the damn country so we can't work on it together. i'm curious how painting over an already glossy surface would work since i don't wanna put bondo or whatever all over the whole thing and sand the WHOLE thing. >.<

I'll definitely have it done by Otakon. I pretty much just need the wig... everything else is an easy find.

@Lucifer -have your vending machine throwing arms come in the mail yet?

akiahara:

If you cover it with acrylic paint, it will dull the shine. But you can just use an acrylic lacquer over it to restore the shine.

BUT...yeah. I totally covered the entire thing and sanded the entire thing. I didn't want seams at the ears.
... I wouldn't suggest Bondo, though. Sanding it can be very dangerous (the dust is toxic!), and paperclay (less expensive) sands just as well.
Again, just make sure to use an acrylic lacquer over it to give it the right shine.

I'm currently working on Celty's dress that you see in flashbacks in episode 4. I'll be debuting it at the SF Cherry Blossom Festival. I might be bringing it to Fanime as well.

Yay, Mirai Noah!

That would be cool-looking!

How will you do the whole "headless" thing without adding, like, an extra foot-and-a-half of height to yourself? I'm too tall for that approach.

Yeah, that's a major problem, LOL. I'm going to wear a cloak too, with the hood covering my head.

I'd suggest a mesh "no-face" mask cut to reveal half your neck. You know. Those masks that come with grim reaper costumes. That + hood-up = headless (from the right angle.)

It's already going to be pretty baller if you make the dress.

I'm definitely going to cosplay Izaya at some point, but probably after the anime ends in case there's some drastic change to his outfit or something. I have this suspicion he's going to grow wings at some point...and I have no idea why.
