Allegra’s Cos-Friends - Aicosu: Sheila and Sylar
Do I need to tell you about Aicosu? Probably not; there probably isn’t much that I can tell you that you don’t already know! I’m sure you already know how talented they are (fact), and I’m sure you also know how much they love each other (also fact). Really, all I can share is a story.
(Aside: it was surprisingly difficult to pick pictures for them since there are so many options! I had a hard time finalizing the set ;__;)
The first time I met Sheila and Sylar was in front of the BioWare Base at SDCC 2011, probably about 4 hours before the actual competition. I was introduced to them through our Varric, Melissa, who had previously met them at PCC. Neither of the three of them had SDCC badges—they had only come to do the contest (and invited me to join about a month before the con), since the BW Base was outside of the actual con center. Apparently Sylar saw me walking towards them and said to Sheila and Mel: “God, I wish that were our Isabela,” to which Melissa responded: “That is our Isabela!” I think that’s still my favorite story XDD
With the three of them (and Mel’s boyfriend Terry, who was our bag carrier and photographer), I had what was most certainly at the time (and probably still is) one of the greatest weekends of my life. Between the contest, meeting all sorts of amazing people at said contest (many of whom will be featured here over time!), going to IHOP at like 1 AM, derping around Balboa Park in costume, getting to really chat with Dave (Gaider) for what was probably about an hour, but in Sheila time was maybe 6 or 7 hours at this point…. But beyond that, we had maybe … what, 36 hours together? In that time, I really got to know and love them as people, so that by 1 AM when my friend picked me up to head back to where we were staying (I had a 5 AM flight the next day), I felt like I was leaving old friends behind. I don’t think I had ever hugged someone I had known for such a short of amount of time quite as hard as I did when I hugged them goodbye.
Now if you had told me that I’d have to wait over a year to see them both again, I would have thrown a fit. I’ve at least had Sheila with me in person (sewing last-minute details onto the Smuggler at 5 AM while singing showtunes, fa la la la REMEMBER, at NYCC; taking adorable pictures, even if it was sometimes with the wrong pirate at PAX East), and gotten to virtually hang out with Sylar as well (playing a lot of AC:B multiplayer, spoiler alert Sylar is a poison spammer the little CHEATER; the odd, impromptu phone call, including one the other night while I was waiting for my takeout to show up)…. But it’s not the same. Somehow, hanging out with both of them, bantering, giggling, and lots and lots of derping—that’s a gift, honestly.
I think that concept—how much my cosplayer friends mean to me, both artistically and personally—should be the theme to all of these little featurettes. Or, at least, that’s the hope. I wouldn’t be telling you about them otherwise :)
What a rush of memories this morning!!! Allegra is has always been an absolute pleasure to know you and even more so cherishing to be your friend!
You really did help make that SDCC weekend UNFORGETTABLE. And whenever we see you that excitement and happiness always rushes back. You are seriously motivating and funny and kind and all together wonderful.
It’s been to long!! WE HOPE TO SEE YOU AT NYCC!
Yay! Sylar! I don’t think
his Hazama he will ever stop being gorgeous to me.
Ooookay. So. Here it is. FINALLY. With some really shitty phone-quality pics I bring you my Terumi wig.
Forgive me for not putting in my contacts for the wig shot. (´▽｀;)ゝ
Reblogging because Jii’s wig skills always blow me out of the water! MAGIC!
Welcome new followers!
Its been a busy weekend or so, but thank you so much for following us and letting us adorn your dashboard!
I’m guessing you’re here from the recent Append Miku/Hazama spam of our costumes — so here have both!!
As you probably found out, we post our costumes and answer tons of questions. We’re trying to work out a way to tumblr Savior them this week, so hang in there in you aren’t liking them. But also know that it means you can feel free to ask anything you want! We welcome and answer every question we can to the best of our ability.
In case you guys aren’t tired of Sylar’s Hazama yet.
Also, for those of you who always ask Sylar how he can impersonate his characters (Grell, Lelouch, Fenris etc…) So well. It just takes practice.
This is a pretty normal occurrence, before conventions or videos, Sylar will just listen to the audio tracks of his character’s Seiyuu’s and repeat everything they say to get it to sound right and to get into character.
I don’t always shoot cosplay, but when I do, it’s for Team Aicosu.
HOTTTTTT. Deb is da best best best. These are awweesoomme.
and Sylar’s sexyness totally helps.
We are heading out for Sylar’s Hazama shoot!!
Our bestest bud keepcalmandstruton will be taking the pictures.
I’m gonna take some funky videos. I will also be spazzing the entire time since Hazama is one of my personal favorites of Sylar. Thus, this fangurl photos of my own makeup work and own boyfriend.
