|-About the cosplay-|
Got into Durarara!! recently, Loved all the characters. Shizuo was my fave. Wanted to cosplay him so yep, here it is. Everything was brought minus trousers, shirt and belt which I already own. Gloves were taken from my Lelouch cosplay.
-About the character-
Shizuo Heiwajima is the man renowned as the strongest man in Ikebukuro. He currently works as Tanaka Tom's bodyguard, and he is shown to be familiar with some of the major characters in the series, including Orihara Izaya and Celty Sturluson. Shizuo is a smoker despite being seen wearing his usual trademark bartender suit and blue sunglasses. Most of the time his personality is rather simple; he is normally quiet and nondescript, and usually simply follows Tanaka Tom around as his bodyguard. However, Shizuo has a very short fuse, and when angered, his body "acts on its own," and he fights with incredible strength. Despite his destructive tendencies, he apparently doesn't like violence, he also doesn't like Orihara Izaya. Shizuo is also capable of often superhuman parkour moves, most likely a result of his own strength and from years of hunting down Orihara Izaya, who is very good at running away from him. Shizuo and Orihara share an intense animosity, and simply seeing Izaya on the street usually results in Shizuo hurling a trash can/vending machine at him while he flees.
