About: This was the first costume of the Angels of Revolution series, a small cosplay project that I created in 2011. I had initially planned on including all the members of the Akatsuki, creating an unique design for each one of them, but after the years passed I decided to drop the idea completely. I fell in love with this costume back when I made it but I feel unsatisfied with it now as well as with all the other designs. I feel that I could have done a better, more detailed costume which would end up giving me a more creative outcome. I also feel like I "ran away" too much from the Japanese theme, being that one of the main reasons of my insatisfaction. I still enjoy the symbolism behind it all, so perhaps one day I will take all the ideas and redo them.




The Angels of Revolution - or AoR - was a project created by me, with the help of a friend who had the kindness to put on paper all the ideas. It is inspired by the Human Rights, and each character represents something that not only is about these, but also related to their personality and past. Only members of the Akatsuki (Naruto) make part of it but, if the whole thing had gone ahead, more Naruto characters would have joined. All of them were represented as angels and had one or more props that made it easier to identify what they represent.

Itachi represents "Justice" and "Free Will". If you don't know him, it may be hard to associate the character to these words, but if you do then you'll know right away why I chose this. For this costume, I  used the scale since it's a symbol of choice and also justice.

This project is discontinued.
