Uriel (With Wings and Scythe!) - Angel Sanctuary


AmeCon 2008




Well, after Elsa did her stunning Alexiel costume, she's decided she wants a third wing and to start an Angel Sanctuary group for Amecon...

I didn't know what I was doing on the Saturday, so I've been roped into doing Uriel, the smexy Angel of Death! I've seen him cosplayed with the scythe, but no-one has tried doing his wings...so now I'm going to attempt to do him with his wings AND his scythe.

Although, finding a reference picture of him with wings AND the scythe is impossible, hence the two different pictures of him LOL

I need to be taller, thinner and much tanned...this is gonna be interesting...LOL

EDIT: The Scythe measures 43.5 x 82 inches or 3.6 feet wide by 6.8 feet tall o_O


EDIT3: Finished!

Here's hoping I pull it off! The scythe is now completely black and I'm gonna paint the silver blade onto it tomorrow ^_^

in my expert opinion... *cough* the scythe isn't curved enough. ah ha! i'm kidding it looks awesome. it's hard to get props to suppoer themselves when they're that big! ^^ nice ominous pose! XD

Cool scythe - looking forward to seeing this ^_^

sjbonnar posted on 8 June, 2008 - 22:30
I'm not worried about that, but the curve isn't MUCH different as that scythe is at a major angle LOL but thank you!

You looked awesome in this at ame! Best Uriel ever! ^_^ (Sorry about all the stroking of your coat...it was just incredibly strokeable :P)

Thanks hun! And it's quite alright that you stroked my coat! I wish we'd all gotten to hang together more :-(

Aww thanks Em. I wasn't too thrilled with it but I'm glad you liked it!

I've been looking at some Angel Sanctury manga and it looks awesome. If you ever decide to do Angel Sanctury again I would love to join in. (now to find a caharcter with white blond hair !!)

LOL Raphael has blonde hair, he's a perverted male doctor angel. Also one of the four Archangels being in charge of the element of wind and the power of life. (whereas Uriel is Earth and the power of Death)

yaay Uriel! I haven't read Angel Sanctuary but I always feel that in angel mythology Uriel is the least-represented Dark Angel of the lot! (it's always Gabriel this, or Azrael that XD ) Love the wings :)

You really should read it! You'd suit Michael SO well!

Ahhh love the new pic =)

sjbonnar posted on 19 May, 2009 - 19:12
It's a REALLY old picture LOL From before the costume was put together. I've thrown the scythe away now LOL But I had to show how they could be done using cardboard ^_^'

Yeah I knew it was an old pic, but new on here lol Just thought it looked good anyway.

Oh hey I found your Uriel! *fangirls* This is SO amazing, and I'm happy to see a Uriel cosplayer doing the scythe AND the wings. Where is all the Angel Sanctuary love?! I would so love to do my Lucifer alongside your Uriel. It would just be too awesome NOT to do!

sjbonnar posted on 1 June, 2010 - 22:55
O_O Aww thank you very much! Well, I'm pretty sure I can get a full group of Archangels together, a Rosiel and an Alexiel... We shall have to start scheming!

Sephirayne posted on 6 June, 2010 - 01:59
I would be up for doing Rosiel but won't be able to do it for a while. Be epic to join you. Especially as your Uriel is so awesome.

sjbonnar posted on 6 June, 2010 - 13:36
Let me know when you think you've got a date for Rosiel. I'd love to get a massive group together!
