Cosplayer SimplyRose > Costume of Shizuo Heiwajima from Durarara!!
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I made the entirety of this costume myself, and it's still going through some editing and revamping before its next convention but overall I'm pretty proud. The pants pattern I had lying around but altered it to be slimmer fitting, while the jacket, shirt, and tie were all patterned by me. The shirt is made out of cotton while the coat and pants are made out of a heavier weight fabric. The shoes are simple white keds which I then used fabric paint on to make the pink strip around them. The headphones and sound machine have a styrofoam base and use craft foam for the detailing.
- Personal Thoughts:
- I'm still in the process of editing some parts of it and it'll get a bit of a revamp before the next con season, but this costume was super comfortable and easy to wear around.
- Styling Notes
- Just used some hair wax to get it to fluff up a bit and keep from drooping during the day.
- Wig Review
- This wig is super low maintenance which is awesome for conventions. I can store it away, unpack it and POOF it's back to where it was before. Just a bit of hair wax gets it right in place and it's awesome for pictures due to its lack of shininess.
