Shizuo - +Durarara+
Photoshoot: So for this particular video I asked Chlore ~ninjagal6
our lighting assistant to please do a video I wanted for Durarara. I directed her on how I wanted the particular video to look, and what kind of shot I was going for. She followed my directions to a T and gave me something that took my breath away. Then unexpectedly she made a gif of the video and gave it to us THE VERY NEXT DAY. I was so overwhelmed with shock, so I wanted to give her in particular a lot of love! Thank you for being our awesome assistant and just being such a lovely person in general!
When my wife smiled and waved at me, I honestly DID want to chase her, but because she was just so darn ADORABLE. Haven't you ever grit your teeth because something is just so cute you can barely contain that FEEL? Yea, I got that feel, and then I chased after her, and we just laughed.
Good thing we aren't ACTUALLY the characters hurp!
Costume: Everything about this costume - I actually made the wrong vest randomly- everything was going well until I noticed I had done so. At that point I had to re-make everything, and *Antiquity-Dreams was more than willing to help me out because I was cutting sleep to get it done. I don't even know how this happened but I was so used to making Kotetsu vests I made a Black Tiger vest on accident. The wig was also styled by me, though I am not particularly fond of it. I'm wearing dickies, the same shoes as Mako, sunglasses I got from the dollar store, and the bow tie and shirt were purchased as well from local thrift stores. The prop/sign was made out of Eva Foam, and a PVC pipe.
The show and why I picked Shizuo. - My inspiration was drawn from his general personality. I loved him from the get-go. I am nothing like him for the most part however. He just struck me as a lovable character. His intentions are pure and I can appreciate his hesitation and really get inside his head on some aspects and relate to his fear of loving others as well.
The series caught my attention because of how intertwined it was, and some of the spoilers really caught me off-guard so I found it very enjoyable. However I dislike greatly how Izaya never gets any character development or redeems himself. I suppose that's the only complaint I could have.
DA is filled with sexy Shizuo's- good lord I cannot even begin to compare.
DRRR!! in Japan, is a Japanese light novel series written by Ryohgo Narita, with illustrations by Suzuhito Yasuda. I credit them of course for the inspiration.
