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 ^_^
