ok, I've posted this on other webpages and I really havn't gotten a good answer only because not many people know... but here is the question.
I want to/am going to make jibrilles costume from angel sanctuary. it's the blue one where she has the veil attached to the dress. I have absolutely no idea what her skirt looks like and all the cosplay pictures are diffrent, thus causing my confusion. if anyone can help me I would really appraciate it!

Hey I got your PM about this.
I'm going to have to look at the mangas and see, because I don't remember if the blue dress is the dress she wears as she is catatonic or not.
If it's not then it's just an artbook dress and thus there is no reference for the bottom and you can just go wild. Since you say everyone does the bottom differently, that's probably the case.
Sorry I can't be more help!

chibi_kitty!!! I see you are running into the same problem i have. I started my jibrille costume this past semester (hand crafted the silver jewlery O.o made self crazy...) anyway, the picture of the blue/purple dress is just an artbook picture and finding the bottom is really not possible, i've had hordes of people looking for it for months. no luck. ;_;
My plan is to just use a form of a bottom of one of her other super fancy dresses, an 'in the style of' kind of approach.
I will have it done for Otakon *crosses fingers*
Good luck with yours. ^^

yup yup, that really is the only picture of Jibrille in that dress. I don't think she ever even wears it in the manga. When I first got into AS about 1000 years ago (ha ha) I wanted to cosplay that, but I couldn't find a picture, so I was Kurai instead (even though I still had to make up the bottom half of that too) and next I'm going to try Lucifer... *wai* Lucifer...

ok, so she dosn't wear the costume in the movie? sadness!
then I guess I will just do the skirt myself.
thanks for all your help!!!

nope. the anime is really short and unhelpful for cosplay. only 3 episodes long. no Jibrille at all! They never got to her part of the story, which is probably good because I thought the anime wasn't good at all (not like the manga which I love!). good luck with the skirt!

> I thought the anime wasn't good at all
That anime was soooooooo bad. And it made no sense when you haven't read the manga. The characters ended up looking hideous... only Katan made an OK transition.
Cosplay-wise the outfits tend to be horrible and garish, the hair color strange and they made the gorgeous leather Atziluth uniforms in tacky shades of PURPLE. >___<;;;;;;;;;;;

ok, yesterday my friends and I watched AS and it wasn't that bad. the dubing sucked (as always) but it was ok consitering that I have nothing to compare it to having not yet read the manga.
And my friends (who don't watch anime) said it was pretty weird but really good. "it kept me on the edege of my seat.... or actually bed..." (we were having a sleep-over party)
ok, just felt like including my 2cents!

the anime was ALMOST a good idea.... well, a good idea poorly executed... yeah. 'executed'... i wish they would do it again and do it right.
ooooo, on a happy note, i started my jibrille skirt. ^^ the overskirt is almost done! weee ^^
