The dream cosplay that might just happen.

this was kind of a secret that only a couple people knew..but eh, why not..

Saint Seiya - Hera


And I'll be honest..I don't know Saint Seiya very well but as soon as I saw this image I wanted to do that costume. And over the last about..3 years I have been documenting how I wanted to go about doing it. I wanted to be able to airbrush the wings but I don't own an airbrush so that is the one thing that kind of deters me..but somehow I think I'm close to actual taking the plunge and doing it. There is just something about this outfit that draws me in and I want to attempt to tackle it. Next year? Who knows...but with all the stuff I have going so far this year I probably won't even get to start it until winter if I even do attempt to do it in the very near future.

I know right? XD Oh well..perhaps now that it is known we can be motivated to actually do it.

I adooooored the Future Studio designs of the entire cast. I remember wanting to do half of everyone since they all have such gorgeous designs. *_*

Oh god I know. They are all so amazing. I don't know what about this particular one really drew me in. I usually don't like pink but this design was just so neat that I just can't help myself. It is going to be so crazy to work on x_x

If you're really interested in buying an airbrush, I can hook you up. We sell them at AC Moore, I get a discount or you can use a coupon. We also have 2 of the compressors clearanced for $50 (and that's down from $250-$399). The airbrushes run from about $29-$170 or thereabouts.

Also, that would be an awesome cosplay.

....Dude..seriously? I don't know a whole lot about air brushes but if there is one on clearance and you could hook me up I would love you forever. I could paypal you the money or something.

No problemo. The compressor is clearanced for $49.99 (from $319.99). The other one apparently sold on my day off. Who knew?

The cheapest airbrush we have is $37.99. It's just a basic one but it does come with a propellant can (if you wanna try before going with the compressor).

I found the Badger website if you want to research more.

I think the compressor would be cheaper in the long run since I imagine you need to buy replacement cans, right? And for a big project I would thin the compressor would be more convenient. . Is it a large compressor or portable? Is it pretty compatible with all airbrushes?

Yep, you'd have to buy replacement cans, and they're like $10 for the small ones.

The one we have left is the Badger Cyclone, which says it's portable and light weight, weighing only 9 pounds. I think it's compatible with most, if not all, Badger airbrushes. Beyond Badger, I'm not really sure.

Well I would probably buy a badger airbrush to go with it anyway since it would probably work best with its own brand. But I mean..compressor would be my best bed. 4 cans and I'd be up to the cost of the compressor. I'd be an idiot to do otherwise XD!!

But yeah, if you let me know what it would cost for the clearance compressor..and would a coupon work on the airbrush? Just let me know what works out to be my cheapest route. I can always splurge on a more expensive air brush later. I could get you the money somehow. Mail you a check or paypal or whatever. I'm thinking it would be a good investment..just need to make sure I'm not spending a fortune.

Those things do add up! ^_^

Coupons do work on the airbrushes! If you just get the basic one, it would be around $22.79 (after the 40% coupon). Though next week is a 50% coupon. Since the compressor is clearanced, it would just be my discount (30%) and that would come to $34.99.

ooh..50 off. Probably worth it to wait on the airbrush. But just don't let my compressor get gone XD $34 for a $300 compressor is hard to pass up LOL. Alright, we shall do it. how do you want me to get you the money? Or another option is if you want to put the compressor and airbrush towards the Nekocon hotel room XD I assumed you were still going to Neko >_> But yeah, lets work something out and put me one step closer to that costume actually happening XD!

We can totally do it that way, putting it towards the Nekocon hotel room. I didn't even think about that. Of course, I'm going! It's steampunk-themed this year. ^_^

I'll buy the compressor tomorrow and wait until the 50 coupon for the airbrush.

I haven't marked the compressors down, so nobody knows! Hehe.

XD I only thought of it as I was typing that response. Not sure why my mind moved in that direction but it totally works.

Sounds good ^_^ And since there isn't any great rush for it yet I can probably wait until Nekocon to get it from you. Or if I head that way for some reason maybe I can swing by ^^

XD sneaky sneaky~
