The Vision of Escaflowne: Van Fanel

the vision of escaflowne cosplay - van fanelThe second son of King Goau and Queen Varie, Van Fanel became the young king of Fanelia when his older brother, Folken Lacour de Fanel, never returned from his test of kingship. Their mother was a Draconian, winged people from Atlantis who were considered to be bearers of bad luck.The brothers were cautioned at a young age against carelessly showing their wings as a mark of their Draconian heritage.

Cosplayer Haduki Youko (葉月ヨウコ) is the girl behind this classic anime character. I remember Van in a similar pose during the ending credits of the series. Thanks to Regan for sharing this!


  1. Wow! Just wow! Truthfully, I have yet to see the series for myself though I have seen a few clips that shows some of the characters. And I have to say that the cosplayer really brought Van to life. What I really what to know though if that's her real hair or a wig :)

  2. I'm guessing it's a wig, but I'm not entirely sure myself. After all, cosplayers have a way with doing their hair to make it look just right. ^_^
