While there are variations on this costume, a basic outfit is favored by most fans. White pans and shrt paired with knee-high leather boots and a cropped medium brown jacket make up this oufit. The most noticeable parts of the outfit are the black buckle straps around the legs of the boots as well as badges with white and navy wings present on the jacket. It's common to see cosplayers passing each other and stopping for a moment, placing their right hand in a firm fist over their chests and the other behind their back in the traditional suit.
