Getting Organized

Look at how organized that is! That’s me actually owning a corkboard AND using it to keep on track instead of just putting ticket stubs and fabric swatches and Christmas cards up there! Fancy.

Yes, that’s a group sketch of everyone lined up for height comparisons down one and on the left. At first I had everyone with their weapons of choice, so I had Izaya ducking his head to avoid Grell’s chainsaw. But then I forgot his blade and then when I got to Haseo, the thought of drawing those guns just made my eyes glaze over. I actually wrote ‘see ref art’ on my sketch for Haseo. I also wrote something about how Izaya probably wears designer clothes but has no idea how to dress himself and thinks all black is cool from when he was in high school. And I don’t have a Tsuzuki sketch because I’m still figuring out which incarnation of him I want to construct. The thought of constructing collars with peak lapels intimidates me, but I went with one for the sketch since I like drawing them.

Much love,



About greyrondo

My name is greyrondo. I've been a cosplayer since Fall 2006, and I've noticed that the best conversations I have with cosplayers usually involve the question, 'so how DID you do that?' So after studying costuming and making a closet's worth of costumes, that's what I'd like to help answer. Drop in and stay awhile whether you're a cosplayer or just a curious spectator; one of my musings is bound to be what you're looking for. If you have a question or something to say, leave a comment or contact me! I don't bite, I promise. View all posts by greyrondo
