The Codename is “V”
This idea came to me a few days ago, but because of Lunacy and a few other things, I couldn’t draw it at the time. Most of my drawing ideas come quickly, I scribble them down, and move on - so having to wait was an uncommon but rewarding feeling, and so I spent a bit more time on it.
Feel free to come up with your own origin stories for this AU Venus. All I know is that she’s the reincarnation of Aphrodite, and she don’t take no shit.
Oh, I forgot to mention! This whole thing was probably inspired by Mary Beth Schroeder, who plays Mina (and Serena) in Sailor Moon: The Movie, which I’m an avid follower of. (Part 1 came out just the other day!! I know it sounds silly with what I just said, but I have yet to see it - but I hear it’s awesome, so go watch it). She’s really grown attached to her Sailor V mask, which is more cloth-like than in the manga/anime, and she calls it her “Superhero” mask pretty often, which… made me think of this.
