Another dimension new galaxy

“Central to Guardians of the Galaxy’s tone and plot is its soundtrack. A mix of ’70s tunes bequeathed to Quill by his late mother, it’s the hero’s only reminder of home.” – iTunes Music

When I first met Chrissy, she had been wanting to do Star-Lord from “Guardians Of The Galaxy” from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I thought we’d be shooting this look much later down the line. We were preparing for our Super Sonico shoot that we planned and she had her Star-Lord costume ready to go. All I needed to bring was the walkman to complete the look. I also managed to find the film’s soundtrack, “Awesome Mix: Volume 1” on cassette to go inside the tape player. The tape player in the movie is actually a Sony Walkman TPS-L2 which have asking prices of up to $1000 on eBay.
