:bulletgreen: Shizuka From Durarara :bulletgreen:

:bulletgreen: Photoshoot: Myself and my roommate *alcblueyes and my wife *Antiquity-Dreams decided to do a quick shoot in order to capture the work that went into this particular costume. Shizuka is basically the gender bent version of Shizuo from Durarara. It was sweltering in this outfit, so by the time I stripped out of it I was soaked. It was worth it though because if I hadn't gotten into it I would not have had any pictures of it to speak of.

:bulletgreen: Costume: I made the vest, completely by hand, emulating a pattern I already owned. Out of material from the fashion district. The reason why this does not resemble Shizuo in the least for the most part is because I was basing my outfit off of a fanart. Unfortunately for me this was so long ago I now cannot find said fanart, and am just OTL for the moment. Regardless, I liked the look of all leather and went for it. I did not make the undershirt (why would I? lol) The glasses, or the pants. I bought all of the above. Everything emulates the art piece I cannot find ><!

Unfortunately even though my wife cosplayed as the genderbend version of Izaya, we didn't have the black wig in order to do a pairing shoot, so Shizuka is all you get.

:bulletgreen: Genderbends: If you don't like the idea of Shizuo being female that is fine, my commentary is open to all of your rage, I don't really care or even mind. -Shrugs.- Lol.

:iconalcblueyes: As the photographer. (She got her feet dirty!)

It's pretty rad the way the light pushes through the back so brightly. I liked the picture, I just wish I had a higher quality camera.

That is a beautiful effect ^.^ I've actually found that without having a higher quality camera, I've managed some "happy accidents" with photos haha

Ehhh- I actually don't like how my legs are getting blurred out a bit by it- a higher quality camera would capture my legs xDD hahaha.

Your legs are rather magnificent, so that is a sadness that they are lost a tad in the photo :P

I have problems distinguishing individuals if they look remotely similiar. I felt like LOTR was a movie about like, one guy who was short, one guy who was tall, and a blonde guy who was pretty. LOL

Durarara! XD Yes! Love this manga/anime :3 I cosplayed Mika for AWA last year. I was actually the only Mika at the con, which was kind of funny cause she's kinda a cop-out cosplay, or at least at the time I thought she was. Now, not so much ^u^

OH MY GOD YOU COSPLAYED MIKA?!?! I CAN'T EVEN BELIEVE THERE WAS SOMEONE WHO DID THAT! THAT'S AMAZING! I would have probably totally flipped out on you! Did you have a Seiji???? Did you do a shoot? DO YOU HAVE PICTURES?

KittyXy Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2012
I didn't have a Seiji :( I wanted one but I couldn't find someone to cosplay as him for me :/ I'm still searching for someone to cosplay him with me. And yes I do ^u^ most of them are on my facebook though. Just haven't had time to upload em, and then there are the ones I was tagged in. I have a few recent cosplay photo shoot pictures of me cosplaying her. I only posted one of em on here [link]
there you go that's the link ^u^ I'm actually hopefully going to dragon con cosplaying her :)

Oh you are so adorable-I know it's difficult to find people to cosplay with- usually you just have to jump into groups that are pre-existing, or offer to do a character, or the like. Hopefully that helps you I am sorry it is difficult <3

Yeah I didn't have a group. I originally cosplayed Mika cause my friend Lori was victorian Celty, and made her self a head and everything XD She told me I should cosplay Mika, so I did and found that I really really enjoyed cosplaying her :) I'm not sure if I'll be able to ever find a Seji but one can hope XD

X3 cause pictures would be so much fun!

OK, I guess I'm going to have to go find Durarara. There's just something really appealing in this shoot and since, in my opinion, you guys always do a good job capturing the feel of the characters, I'm betting I'll enjoy it.

You look like you're having fun.

Oh my god - PLEASE DO I would love it if you joined in the fandom, we may be less than normal but it's such a great show! Wait until the first five episodes, when it starts tying together it gets REALLY intense!
