DRRR - Hibiya - Regality by Izaya-chan DRRR - Hibiya - Regality by Izaya-chan
I should be sleeping right now like the night owl I have become. However, it seems like sleep is evading me and I needed to find myself something to do. Ta da~ a new picture! I have been wanting to post a new one since yesterday *Koholint added her first Delic feature.

As she explained, we fell in love with the designs as soon as Hibiya’s cover came out and we decided to add them to our A-Kon 22 cosplay 'to do' list. If I recall correctly, this was one of my last cosplays to add to the final list and I am so very glad I went ahead and did it. So far, I have to say it is one of my favorites to wear. Very comfortable albeit slightly hot for Texas weather.

If you are wondering about “Delic” and “Hibiya” and why you haven’t seen them in the anime or the novels, the reason is because they are both designs for CD covers. Izaya’s song is Subarashii Hibi (Hibi + Izaya = Hibiya) and Shizuo’s design comes from the Shizuo version of Psychedelic Dreams. The Japanese fandom has taken these versions and given them their own personalities… sort of like alternate versions of Izaya and Shizuo. Delic (*Koholint ) is supposed to be somewhat smooth and flirty while Hibiya is slightly arrogant and princely (and a tsundere).

Cosplay is self-made and crown is the work of a friend (I don’t think he has a DA.) A note on the design, the CD cover isn’t very specific as to how the bottom of the outfit looks like so I studied several fanarts/cosplayers to decide on what to do. Luckily, I found that amazing stripped fabric for the pants and I went with puffy pants (and sleeves). Also, I am wearing golden contacts in this picture even though they don’t show much.

I made my own pattern. I couldn't find anything to resemble what I needed but I think you might find some patterns for a cape and then modify the collar, same with the tunic ^_^

you're welcome, though I thought Izaya's alter ego name was Psyche, but Hibiya is cool too. I look forward to seeing more pictures of these characters!

so, it's basically the same Izaya with a different fur trim jacket? Not a bad color, certainly matches his eyes more, a little more romantic image for Shizu-chan lol! I can't wait to see that cosplay>>

haha That and the shirt... However, the personality of Roppi is completely different from Izaya's. I already have some progress pics for Roppi so I might upload them in a bit

I'm sorry I took such a long time to comment!! -hangs head in shame- I was in Florida xDD Now, excuse me while I have a seizure.
GAH. So wonderfully fabulously perfect as always. Adorable, really~ I love it so much. The edging on the cape is beautiful and your crown is so cute <33 Your eyes look great, the brown fits the tone of the picture.
Love it forever!

I adoooore wearing this costume. It is actually quite comfortable and wearing capes is so much fun! Originally the contacts are a goldenish color but they show more brownish in pictures. It doesnt bother me though. It fits the character ^_^

Hi! I remember seeing you at AKon. ^^ I meant to ask you then, but I forgot (and I didn't want to take up your time!) and if you wouldn't mind, could you tell me where you got your red contacts for your Izaya cosplay?

I've been looking everywhere for some that actually look right, since I plan on cosplaying him for AFest. Please let me know if you get the chance! (:

hm I actually think I remember seeing you around FB and the con. Hetalia cosplayer?
Either way, I don't know if I can really help you with finding good contacts since I bought mine locally at an Asian shop here. If you live in the DFW area I have heard that they sell contacts at H-mart.

If you are cosplaying Izaya at afest I hope to see you around. I am planning on hosting a DRRR!! gathering ^_^

Yep, that's me. :D Yeah, I'm in the DFW group.

Ooh really! That'd be cool, I think I saw one at AKon too, but I can't be sure. I'd definitely be interested in attending if you decide to do it. (:

Thanks for answering.

aww you have no idea how much it means to me to read that. I was very worried in the beginning because I didn't know if I would find suitable fabric for the pants (I thought I would have to sew the white strips on or viceversa) and overall, I was iffy about his design because the lack of cannon references. I'm really really happy you liked it so much!

You're welcome! I'm glad I was able to make you happy! :heart: I think that you got the costume down perfectly! There aren't a lot of references, but luckily, they all generally look the same.
