coolest costumes/battle uniforms
What costumes or military/battle uniforms do you like the best?

And what are your least favorite costumes?

What are the most practical and least practical costumes?

Favorite costumes:

Hei's costume consisting of black trench coat and kabuki noh mask (Darker Than Black). That kind of costume really suits him, and is fitting for his namesake which means black in Chinese.

Archer's sleek red-coated costume (Fate/Stay Night)

Saber's battle costume made of blue garment and steel armor (Fate/Stay Night). Saber looks very regal, majestic and commanding in her costume like this.

Ohgami Ichiro's white battle costume from Sakura Taisen anime. Ohgami looks cool in that costume.

Favorite battle/military uniforms: There is a difference between an uniform and a costume. A costume is worn by individuals but uniforms have to be look the same like in a group, especially a sentai group from Voltron or Voltes V.

Valkyrie-fighter pilot uniforms from Macross. They look cool and stylish. Dress uniforms from Macross are stylish as well.

I liked the girls' battle uniforms from Sakura Taisen 2 and 3 video games/anime. They were too good for Sakura to wear.

most practical costumes:
Hei's costume is very practical which would allow him to blend in with the shadows while undertaking espionage missions

least practical costumes:
Saber's armored costume, which incudes a big long armor-plated skirt, which might limit her manueverability in a battle.

It would make sense for characters who spend most of their time underwater to wear light clothing that offers little resistance when they are swimming. Anyone who wears a long cloth cape that would have gotten soggy and dragged them down and high-heeled boots that would have made walking difficult enough, let alone swimming.

I decided to go with something a little more recent. Im going to have to say i love the uniforms of The Order of the Black Knights. Really they are just badass and cool looking. Kallen looks great in black, a mini skirt and boots :love: not mention C.C.'s new black outfit with big ol slits and her boots :love::love:

Another fairly recent series Ergo Proxy got to love the dark gothic uniform

Then for some old school Id have to say Iria

Iv always loved the uniforms of the starforces in Crest/Banner of the Stars

i also love the mecha armour suits used in Bubblegum Crisis, though ive never watched the series =P

and for the rest the robes from Mai Otome

Aoie_Emesai 2008-05-26 17:27

I've yet to see one that can really match up to this one here

The artworks is superbly done and the armor Sumi Keiichi draws are spectacular.

NorthernFallout 2008-05-26 17:56

At first place we have Code Geass. I just love all designs concering that show.

On close second we have Nanoha StrikerS. I mean just the regular uniform on Fate looks fabolous.

KholdStare 2008-05-26 18:39

Fate, Nanoha, and Vita. I can't seem to find a good Nanoha uniform picture though (to my liking, since I am very choosy).

klowny 2008-05-26 19:11

i love the Dark Order costume (planning to buy the costume for next convention)

yezhanquan 2008-05-26 19:23

An interesting question I'll like to pose is: Do you guys think that the clothes "make" the character, or do the characters "make" the clothes?

Majorly seconded. :D

The retro/steampunk outfits in Last Exile are pretty awesome.

<-- see avatar.


larger version:
(weird, can't link to image directly)

Ok, they're not actually this detailed in the anime itself, but still pretty cool.

Aijou 2008-05-27 16:16

I can't decide favs out of the moment right now.

But the ones I like are:

Vash's suit from Trigun. I want ONE for myself ! and some yellow glasses.

Shinigami captain's uniform/robe are cool as well. Byakuya for example ( from Bleach ):

Spoiler for For size. Here is a better example of the shinigami captain robe:

I really LIKE the shinigami captain robes!!!

The D.Gray-Man Black Order uniforms are also cool.

Ryoma's outfit in Armageddon:

MuvLuv uniforms (especially the samurai girl's version):
This outfit too:

Natsuki's motorcycle outfit:

stelok 2009-02-28 08:02

These are the coolest costume designs of Sakura & Syaoran I've seen

Demi. 2009-02-28 15:05

Fate testarossa ofc:

grylsyjaeger 2009-02-28 16:14

I love the Gallian uniforms from Valkyria Chronicles. The Darcsen camouflage pattern really looks great.

kk2extreme 2009-02-28 18:48

did anyone forget sailormoon :D

yezhanquan 2009-02-28 20:15

Anyone from Getbackers, especially in the manga. I'll never look at a black business suit in the same way after this series.
