This showstopping collection from Anovos may have slipped passed your radar when it was released for sale on Valentine’s Day, but it’s not too late to get your hands on these two faithfully replicated, and fantastically stylish, costume pieces from Battlestar Galactica – the strikingly gorgeous Six red dress and jewelry set!
Limited to just 200 pieces, this is the first (and likely only!) time you’ll have an opportunity to own a perfectly replicated Six dress. Because if you should know only one thing about Anovos, it’s accuracy!
Why a limited run?
Well, what it comes down to, simply, is demand. If the first 200 pieces sell out and Anovos gets enough response from even more people wanting the dress (or jewelry), then it would be logical for them to do another run. But the odds are pretty slim of that happening, which means you should really jump at this opportunity.
Priced at $150, this faithful reproduction is a real steal if ever there was one. If you consider what your own time is worth to make this dress, or that of someone you’d commission to make it for you, it would easily cost you close to that amount. But it would never be as identical to the real one as the dress Anovos has produced. Plus, with their awesome tiered pricing structure, you have the opportunity to own this dress for as little as $120! Honestly, why are you even still here reading and not over on their site buying that dress right now?!
The jewelry set of Six’s iconic bracelet and ring is even more limited at only 100 pieces available. Priced at $250, it’s a bigger investment than the sultry red dress, but much more versatile and easier to incorporate into your geek chic wardrobe. With the tiered pricing structure, you have the opportunity to get it for as little as $200!
Lindz and I had the pleasure of chatting with Anovos at San Diego Comic-Con last year about the Six jewelry pieces, and we can assure you that, while $250 is obviously on the pricey side, they’re offering this jewelry set for as low as they can afford to. Anovos went to great lengths to aim for a lower price point, but in the end, manufacturing costs determined the final price.
One thing we appreciate with Anovos is that they are true fan boys at heart and, while this IS obviously a business, and they DO need to make profit, they often go out of their way to produce items where the profit margin is minimal, which is something that most other companies wouldn’t ever consider doing. Anovos is about giving the fans what they want, and while it’s normal for companies to not bother making something if they can’t sell mass quantities of an item, they’re more than willing to do a run of just 50 or 100 of something to make dreams come true for those 50 or 100 hardcore fans. And it’s that’s dedication to the fans, and the fandom, that gives BSG fans the opportunity to own these stunning replicas.
So whether you’re looking to have the definitive Six cosplay or, like me, looking to incorporate faithful costume replicas into your geek chic wardrobe, Anovos has you covered! How would you style one or both of these pieces into your everyday, or special-night-out, geek chic ensembles? My head is already swimming with the possibilities!
