Dragon Shiryu (1st version anime cloth) - Saint Seiya





Saint Seiya is probably my favourite anime, and Shiryu is possibly my favourite character in it despite that he seems to endure the most beating in the series. I think out of the saints, he probably bears the closest similarity to me as well.

I plan to distinguish myself from other saint seiya cosplayers by making the armour out of metal. I have researched it a bit, and I've found that aluminium is the best metal to use as it can be shaped somewhat easily, yet still providing for an metal shine that you get from real armour. But I still think this will turn out to be a monumental task if I see it through to the end.

I love Shiryu, he is my favourite after Shun, as I love his back story with Ikki. I have fancied doing the Andromeda armour for a while now but I'm not even sure how to start and I'm glad to see another Seiya fan out there! I will be defo keep an eye out for this one!
