|Awards :||3rd prize in cosplay masquerade.|
|-About the cosplay-|
The outfit, wig and glasses do not belong to me, They belong to a friend who let me borrow them while he was away on vacation. Since a group of friends wanted to do a Espada group for JAF and I didn't have a Espada cosplay (Arturo isn't a member of the Espada.) However my friend was going away and couldn't go to JAF so I asked him if I can borrow his Szayel Aporro cosplay just for the weekend and he did. I personally thought the outfit was never gonna fit me as he's a size M and I'm a size L. But it did surprisingly. The only annoying bit was the wig. It was sooo damn tight! We had 9 out of 10 members and we went on the masquerade and won 3rd prize. We was really surprised as we hardly win anything LOL. Only let down was I didn't have the sword... Boots were from my Arturo cosplay.
-About the character-
Szayel Aporro Granz is an Arrancar and the 8th (Octava) Espada in Sosuke Aizen's army. The remains of his Hollow mask take the form of rectangular-framed glasses, giving him a scholarly appearance. The placement of his Hollow hole and Espada number tattoo are both unknown. Szayel is a meticulous intellectual and the scientist of the Espada. Unlike all the other Espada, Szayel is highly narcissistic, extremely flamboyant, and tends to make lewd, disturbing comments about his opponents. Szayel is quite sadistic and views others as little more than research material. He thinks poorly of non-Hollows, and hopes that Aizen will someday wipe all non-Hollows out of existence. He also thinks of himself as an actor, treating his battles like theatrical performances, especially when toying with his victims. He boasts that he is a "perfect being," since he is capable of reproducing himself in another person's body, and thus, views himself as immortal. Szayel's Zanpakuto is called Fornicaras, His release command is Sip. Szayel's aspect of death is Madness.
