I -finally- finished my Alexiel costume (from the Angel Cage artbook of Angel Sanctuary) and I'd like to know what you think ^^ The best pictures of it are in my gallery, though there aren't any good ones showing the third wing. Thanks!

The sword looks freaking awesome. Your hair looks perfect, too. You make a really good Alexial. Good work!

I am really picky about eye make-up so I hope you don't mind if I suggest more volume on the lashes.

No, not at all, thanks ^^ I misplaced a lot of things that weekend. Including my heavy duty mascara, my wig cap, and my hair pins >_>

Honestly I think Alexial's costume is one of the UGLIEST costumes ever put to paper. There's something about the outfit that I fail to see ever looking good on a person. It has a lot to do with some inhuman proportions or something, but that particular outfit of hers is NOT all that attractive looking. Now if you wanna talk about good stuff for her to wear, there's always the entire wardrobe Setsuna wears when in her body in hell.
I've gotten away from the topic however. You did want something more constructive didn't you? In general I can say you did a fair job with the costume. The construction looks good and any nitpicky things are pretty much there. I'm curious to know if you constructed the wings yourself, they certainly don't look store bought. Definately a plus for you there. I'm assuming the sword was also constructed by you, it appears to be a tiny bit crocked mostly in the hilt area, but other then that it's much more impressive then anything I could probably do at this point.
Overall you did do a very good job. Other then my dislike for that particular costume I don't really have any substantial complaints.

Er... I see. .. In any case, yes, I made the wings myself. They did take quite some time and ended up not having sturdy enough bases. The sword I made myself as well, though it broke at the hit halfway through the con.

I'm sorry to hear that about your sword. Costume mishaps of that sort are a somewhat common thing, ne? A good friend of mine had her hand made Clover wings destroyed just as she entered the convention center for Megacon this year.

Ack, that's awful... I found a goodpicture of my third wing and put it in my gallery if anyone wants to see ^_^

I absolutely adore your Alexiel, it has to be my favorite, not only because its really good, but because you look so much like her. I loved your sword, so pretty, that and the dress itself, it's all so accurate. Great job on it, I'm very impressed, it made my day the first time I saw it. *btw the Lucifer you have in some of your pics was AWESOME, had to be one of the best I'm ever seen*

Hey, thanks! I'm glad most people seem to like it. I enjoyed AZ very much, by the way, and if I talked to you there, please by all means drop me an IM or something sometime. I'll tell my friend you liked his costume. We'll have another AS group at Otakon... though, Ame-chan, I'm doing a -different- outfit ^.~
