Saint Seiya - The lost Canvas

Last Updated: 04-21-2014

Libra Dohko: “You…! Why? How could you kill Tenma, who was your dear friend? Answer me Alone!”
Alone: „You should know that … Death is salvation!”


Alone is rather a quite nontypical character for me. Mad, broken, complicated. And not to forget on the dark side. But somehow his sad character moved me: An artist who lost the one thing in life that meant most to him, who is only able to destroy in order to create something and finds the perfect red in the colour of blood. Who wants to bring eternal salvation to humankind in death…

But still due to my friends I’m unable to take him seriously … Just cause our Thanatos accidently called me “Hase” (rabbit) instead of Hades when we were first discussing the cosplay… Equally the twingods shared my fate though, as Hypnos became -> “Hühnchen” (chicken) and Thanatos -> “Täubchen” (dove)…. Still already at this point I became unable to take the whole anime/manga entirely serious… although it really is …

About the cosplay:

This time I have to admit: The cosplay was sewn to 90% by Pisces-Albafica@animexx.de and Aries-Shion@animexx.de aka Hypnos and Thanatos cause I still don’t own a sewing machine and it would have taken up till Christmas most likely to handsew Hades’ robes… So myself only humbly contributed the star pendant, the painting of the collar and shopped trousers, sandals, my ‘Fluffy’ aka Cerberos and the wig (which was styled by Thanatos though).

I’m still entirely unsure if my presentation does the character justice or not… But I haven’t given up yet. Plus up till now there is only one single pic of that cosplay I like without reproach.

Although I have to admit that this very cosplay tempts me very much to fool around ^^’’.
E.g.: Started racing with Miku aka duel-sweeping the floor with our long “dresses”. Whirled around like a derwish very often, decorated ppls noses with red dots or tried out pseudo-kungfu-poses… Sorry but otherwise I think my sanity in this cosplay would be as much affected as the sanity of the char himself.

Finally after nearly 2 years of waiting at my goodbye-shooting here in NRW you could say cause I have to move soon, I got some great pictures of this cosplay and I guess I do him justice afterall ^-^!
