Messing with Angel  
Last night nikkiwawa79 was helping me to decide what show to rewatch (the choices were BTVS S1-3, ATS S1-3, or Arrested Development). She told me to rewatch BTVS. I got through Disc One and let me say, I am totally convinced now that Angel was really suppose to be Angelo from Staten Island or Brooklyn.

Want proof? What follows is our conversation, with picture evidence. Sorry for the crappy quality of Angel. Those S1-3 caps for BTVS are never any good. Caps (and snark) from Welcome to the Hellmouth, The Harvest, and Teacher's Pet only. (Cause that is as far as I watched last night)



Comments are all mine. nikkiwawa79 was too busy laughing. Disclaimer: This is all done in good fun, please don't take offense. I am an east coast Italian girl myself, so just poking fun at my own kind. (I'm half Irish too so you know, don't get me started on THAT part of Angel's history!)

He looks like a guido from Staten Island. "Me and the boys was going inta da city. This summer we is goin' to da shore."
Click for larger, these ones only.



I expect him to say "How YOU doin'?"



Check out the hair! He is total bridge and tunnel!



He is Angel Soprano! He wants some cannelloni with blood sauce, just like grandma used to make in the old country



What is with those collared shirts? Did he get lost on his way home from the Men's Wearhouse?



THE SHINY SHIRT! It is like he wants cars to see him when he bikes at night. He's a vampire. He needs to be seen in the dark.



Or he hung out with Liberace and stole some of his fashion tips.



Or didn't make the try-outs for Siegfred and Roy



No wonder half of fandom thinks he is gay with that velvet blazer



Angel, the only ones that look good in velvet are Elvis and Jesus



Again, I say, looking like a lost member of Scissor Sisters, no wonder half of fandom thinks he's gay


Stay tuned cause I have this feeling I will have no choice but to ridicule the rest of his fashion choices to come.

Well, I know you would be just as home making fun of Angel as the rest of us. Heck, don't we do that every other week it seems like? LOL

I never thought of it before, but you're totally right!
Kelly: ATS: Smarter Angelxlivvielockex on June 14th, 2008 03:42 am (UTC)
It was one of those things that as soon as I noticed it at first, then it all started coming out at me.

I have a feeling there is so going to be another post like this in my future. Angel needs to be mocked. Can you imagine if Cordy saw him in the velvet blazer? Or the shiny shirt? Oh man, laughing already.
Nikki: jack lmaonikkiwawa79 on June 14th, 2008 03:11 am (UTC)

HA! Thanks for the laugh. Angel in the early early years of Buffy was truly a thing of beauty...
Kelly: C/A Sunnydalexlivvielockex on June 14th, 2008 05:39 pm (UTC)
I have to wonder if Buffy was really attracted to him or just looking for a gay shopping buddy. Because if I met him in a dark alley wearing that shiny jacket, I would wonder if he was coming home from The Blue Oyster or some other such themed gay bar. LOL
ubiquirkubiquirk on June 14th, 2008 02:05 pm (UTC)
OMG! Thank you for this. I needed the laugh.

And so so true! The velvet/shiny jacket was just so Anne Rice.
Kelly: ATS: Smarter Angelxlivvielockex on June 14th, 2008 05:40 pm (UTC)
You think he said to Dru "I am going to give you the choice I never had...the choice not to dress like Fat Tony from the Simpsons"? LOL

Everyone needs a good laugh at Angel's expense now and again. LOL
Adelheidiithinkitisayit on June 15th, 2008 01:52 pm (UTC)
Ever notice how he's wearing white shirts, when during his own series, he wouldn't be caught dead wearing anything that brightly coloured?

And in Room with a View, I swear he's wearing a cross when he goes to scold Cordelia for getting peanut butter on the bed.
naika7: buffy/angelnaika7 on June 18th, 2008 09:08 pm (UTC)
His clothes did change a lot on his own show. Still fine in everything though )))

LOL Thanks for this!! Angel in early years of Buffy really need to change his wardrobe...
I can't stop myself from laughing now...
Kelly: ATS: Smarter Angelxlivvielockex on June 27th, 2008 01:15 am (UTC)
He had TWO jackets. The shiny one and the velvet one. And only three shirts until the middle of BTVS S2. Poor guy, he really could have used a stylist girl like Cordy to tell him to wise up and ditch the Liberace-wear.
Sarah: DW:  Nine/Rose Oncoming Storm/Bad Wolfboy_named_susie on June 16th, 2008 09:41 pm (UTC)
Hilarious! Well worth a study break.

I especially love the last three comparisons, but the whole thing is funny. And can't you just see Angel trying to hang out with Liberace, you know, right before he started crushing on Manilow?
Kelly: DW: 10/Donnaxlivvielockex on June 27th, 2008 01:16 am (UTC)
Will you quit giving me fic ideas? LOL Of course Angel meeting Liberace sounds totally up Foamy's alley for sure.
jears anatomy: psychic girlonmyowndick on June 18th, 2008 09:09 pm (UTC)
I LOLed through the whole thing. The shiny shirt bits were the best! Those are just screaming to become icons.
Kelly: ATS: Smarter Angelxlivvielockex on June 27th, 2008 01:16 am (UTC)
I was so worried how shiny it was on screen wasn't going to come through in screencaps. In the show, wow, blinded by the shiny. LOL
naika7: buffy/angelnaika7 on June 18th, 2008 09:10 pm (UTC)
That shiny (velvet was it?) jacket just about did it!!! Wow!! Looking back it looks funny, but worked at the time.

Angel is my love forever!)))Thanks for this
Kelly: ATS: Smarter Angelxlivvielockex on June 27th, 2008 01:17 am (UTC)
From the looks of it on my rewatch, he only had two jackets up through the middle of S2. The shiny one and the velvet one. He only had about three shirts for a while there too. LOL

Mark Hunter: Geek danceozma914 on June 19th, 2008 12:44 am (UTC)
Well, this explains a lot: His Irish accent is do bad because he's not Irish! And Buffy was his beard all that time; his moment of perfect happiness came when he thought about how perfect he'd look in her new dress.
Kelly: ATS: Smarter Angelxlivvielockex on June 27th, 2008 01:18 am (UTC)
How bad is it that we could probably find enough subtext in the show to support this? LOL I really want someone to do a meta about this now, even as just a joke.

"Why Ms. Summers, you're so...sparkly!" (I am seriously dying laughing over here)

Heee hee - My boxset was delivered this week and I have actually just started rewatching too - I'll be looking out for more Liberace moments from now on.

Thanks for the giggle...
Kelly: ATS: Smarter Angelxlivvielockex on June 27th, 2008 01:20 am (UTC)
Oh, there are a plenty. The poor guy only seems to have the shiny jacket and the velvet jacket until middle of S2. I feel so bad for him. I guess spending times in the sewers doesn't lend itself to being on the cutting edge of fashion.
