What was almost a dragon's hoard...
This week it's a double-feature! While looking through swatches of different vinyl "leathers" (resembling the black Dragon Master vinyl that TT released years ago), I saw the gold and silver versions and just KNEW that I had to make it part of my colorway collection!
As mentioned on Instagram, the gold version reminded me of Athena's golden aegis in Greek mythology, while the silver version resembled the armor of the Valkyries in Norse mythology.
Here you see my old Youtube avatar from probably 10 years ago - my Halloween costume / cosplay of Athena (or more accurately, Minerva as it's the Roman version of the same figure). That scalemail aegis took me close to a month to make by hand, one scale and one jump ring at a time! As mentioned last week, each colorway has some kind of significance or history - a special story associated with it.
