  • Thank you so much, everyone!
    I've always loved this painting.
    I know that some people might have their feathers ruffled because they think a Renaissance nude is inappropriate or disturbing, but I am strongly against the censorship of fine art, especially a Botticelli.
    Besides, I think 13+ year olds should be able to handle the fact that my reference pic has one visible boob.
    Thank you everyone for your upvotes and kind comments! I'm truly honored!

  • Wow. I am so jealous. I too made an Aphrodite cosplay but now I see how terrible mine is. You got the hair perfect, the body on point and that background. emotion_drool I sincerely hope you take first with this. Literally the best cosplay on Gaia.
