The Capturer by hana-shiro The Capturer by hana-shiro
Finally! A picture of my Crystal cosplay!
I TOLD you I'd post a pic. I WARNED YOU, DOG!!!!!
/cough

uh, yeah. Soooooo...do you like it, or not? I really like it! It was pretty comfy to wear too. People actually recognized me! <3 And yeah, all of these poké balls belong to me, except for the Love ball and Moon ball who belong to ~pink-blossom and ~mikuga, respectively.

But, there are a few things that I disliked in general:
-I was actually pretty cold, especially in the evening
-My pokégear (the part near the screen) broke many times and I had to fix it with SCOTCH TAPE, which was really fucking ugly
-The bag was heavy and was making my back and shoulders hurt
-aaaand the pigtails were sometimes a pain in the ass.

BUT all of this doesn't matter!! My Flandre costume was a whole different thing in levels of comfortability, haha. Thanks to my sisters for making the costume!

That's really unfortunate for you. :c

Maybe, if I see you...But I'm not really good at talking to the camera, and I'm pretty shy irl... xD so I don't know. It's a really cool project, though!

Oh my gosh, one of the best Crystal cosplays I've seen, no doubt. :heart:
The outfit itself looks so wonderful and flawless, and the wig is VERY well done. :love:
And this photo is so sweet! I really like how you have all of the Pokeballs lined up! :aww:

THANK YOU SO MUCH. ;//;
It's all thanks to my sisters, really. ;w; They are the one who sewed all of this costume, and styled the wig, so I don't really deserve all of these compliments! :( But thank you anyway, that is so nice of you! :aww:
Aww!~ Well, I'm glad you liked it!~ ;3; (i still wish to have all the kinds of pokeballs that exist, those would be the perfect props for Crystal asgfhk)

You're very welcome!
Well even so, you wear it very well and part of cosplay is maximizing your resources, so as far as I'm concerned, you still deserve it! ^^

Haha, yeah no kidding! I'm sure your collection will continue to expand - it's very impressive as it is! ^_^

Why was the bag heavy? What was the Pokegear made of that was breaking?
I like your shoes. Were they comfy? Were they regular shoes with an accessory on top of them, or were they totally soft like they look? Was it wintertime?

The bag was really heavy because there was a lot of stuff in it. You know, con stuff: camera, food, glasses, props (ie: pokeballs), etc. And, the bag being 100% homemade, I guess it wasn't really like those backpacks that you buy in stores, who are designed to be comfortable and such (?). ^^;

I made the pokégear with some sort of clay. But I had to model it two times: the first time didn't work because the small rectangle part at the end kept falling off. The second time, it worked. I put my costume in a bag and when I reached the con, I changed into my costume, only to find out that the pokégear was, again, broken. :( This was on friday, so the only thing I could do was carry the pokégear around like that. When I came back home, I sticked the part that fell down on the pokégear with some scotch tape.

Thanks! Yes, they were really comfy. :D I bought them for really cheap, but they are comfy. It was so long to make them. xD I cut out the shapes (the different colored shapes on the shoes) that I wanted in foam. Then, based on these shapes, I sewed in red, white and black fabric (for the different colors), a slightly bigger shape. I left a small opening so that I can put the foam inside. I closed the opening. When I had all of my shapes sewed like that, I sticked them on the shoes with hot glue. I hope it didn't sound too complicated. xD I'm bad at explaining...So yeah, to answer your question, they were really soft, because it all made of fabric.

This picture was taken in summertime, but since the con was taking place inside an air-conditionned building, I was pretty cold walking around in skin-tight shorts like these. xD Let's just say that my outfit wasn't keeping me very warm. >>' My top was sleeveless, like Crystal in the manga (but nobody noticed this detail because I kept my jacket on all day lol), as you can see on this picture: [link]

...I'm sorry for the long comment. ^^;

No reason to apologize for leaving a long comment. Those are my favorite kind.
I really do appreciate you giving my the manga link too.
I'll admit that your (copied and pasted your text because I don't know how to type "é", lol) pokégear kind of was bringing the outfit down... but your homemade shoes were super awesome, and I am genuinely interested in seeing what your home made back pack looked like. I didn't see it in your cosplay folder.

I'm glad to hear that. :D

No problem! I know, right? D: It's a shame that I couldn't have the perfect pokégear to go with my outfit. I'll have to find a solution to this problem for when I'll be wearing Crystal again, which is pretty soon, actually. I'm attending a con at the end of January and I'm planning on wearing a Homestuck costume on Saturday. As for Sunday, well...I don't know if I'll going as Crystal or Silver.

If you want, I can post a picture of the backpack for you. (: Yes, I'll definetely do that, since you can't see it in this picture.

Yah. I wanna see the backpack. Let me know when you have posted it.
As for the pokegear, could you make a better one out of plastic? I'm sure you could find plastic things you could glue together that would look better than something that looks like clay. The pokegear stood out in a bad clay way in your wonderful costume last time. After hearing how you made the shoes, I wondered if you could make a plastic pokegear out of parts. Even though the shoes were made very differently.

Yes...Plastic would probably be a good way to make the pokégear. I will probably look out for a tutorial...And I will ask my sisters about this, since they are fairly good at cosplaying, and much more experienced than me with making costumes. xD
