Raziel (Candidate Uniform) - Angel Sanctuary


AmeCon 2008


Angel Sanctuary is my fave manga ever and Raziel is my fave character in the saga. I wanted a relatively easy costume (famous last words) for ame because of final exams this year, so Raziel seemed an obvious choice. He has ALOT of costumes in the manga but this was my fave and probably most recognisable of his so I went for his candidate uniform.

This was another learning experiance cosplay! The jacket was okayish to make, except for BLOODY ARMHOLES which I eventually managed to fix. I interfaced the cuffs and did all the black around the edges of the cuffs and hood, yay accuracy! Also made the belt and strap because I couldn't find a black leather belt ANYWHERE. My first time working with pleather (on a very small scale!) but they turned out okay. ^_^

I was going to go for leather shorts...but I didn't want to make them and the only leather shorts you can seem to buy are a bit...er...interesting to say the least. So I went with the more comfortable alternative. XD I also made the wings which were actually a hell of alot of fun to make, and not too difficult at all. I basically followed Paperwings tutorial, so look it up on google. It's epic. ^_^

I actually really like this costume even if not many people know who I am! I love Raziel and it's great to cosplay him. People gave me lots of love for the wings...more than I was expecting seeing as it was my first go at them. So yes! Much fun! Even if I did look slightly like a Hitler Youth member...O_~

Rewore this at Kitacon and I have to give so much love to the people who recognised me! WAY more people than at ame! It made me so happy ;_; I always love being Raziel! NOT SURE if I'll be wearing this again...main reason being that the wings are officially DEAD. :p If I do it'll be wingless, or with new wings. Anyways I have LOTS more Raziel costumes planned so watch this space!! ^_^

A cute, well made costume!! The wings do look really fantastic, and the fabric part of the costume looks incredibly well made too. You get my love for looking so cute for the entire of Ame '08! (I missed this one, I don't remember seeing you in this anywhere ><) Will have to stalk you at Kita, then ^__^ (btw, it may just be me but the picture entitled "^_^" reminds me of a photograph that ended up of me zonked out after the party crashing out on you ^^')
