Podcast #35 Video Edited
Three days of editing and over 10 hours of rendering later, here it is, the fully edited Krystal Archive Podcast Live Panel at Furry Fiesta 2015! Featuring special guest Ayano as Assault Krystal and one other surprise guest. See all of the announcements that you missed out on in person.
Thanks so much for taking the time to edit this, I shared a direct link on my Krystal page so hopefully your channel will get alot of views! It must have been magical for her to be in your presence, was it the first time you met her in person? (I’d say it is cause I think this is the first time she’s been to one of these in the states)
Also, I have several fans asking whether shes a girl on not, commenting on her breast size. I told them that not every girl has a huge rack (esp. not many Jap girls) and that her Assault costume is rather skin tight and that you can clearly see a females figures esp. in the hips area. Can you confirm that she is indeed a female for the skeptical fans?
Thanks. It was pretty cool. The suit looks much better in person than on video. It’s hard to describe why. I have over 1 hour of footage of her walking around, so I will hopefully get that edited within a week or two.
No, I have met Ayano once before at Further Confusion 2012. She has cosplayed as Krystal at least 4 times in America, probably more, but most of the time at Further Confusion or Furry Fiesta. This is the first time she’s been in America with the Assault suit (she showed off a partially finished version at a Japanese con about a month to two ago). Before that it was the Adventures suit. Ayano has also done other characters.
Ayano is very shy and doesn’t like to appear out of costume. As such, I have never met her out of the suit, and she has not told me her underlying gender. If you want to know, I suggest you contact her directly.
hmm I would, but I have no way of contacting her nor do I speak a lick of Japanese. lol If “she” wants to keep it a secret then I can’t fault her for it, I just know if I were to have an awesome cosplay like that I’d want everybody to know it and know whose underneath the suit, that is unless I were cosplaying a character of the opposite sex, then I’d be alittle embarrassed but then again I always dress up as male characters!
You said shes done other characters… what were they and do you have any links/pics?
Please understand this: social norms for Japanese people are very different. They tend to be a very private, quiet people as a general rule and try to avoid standing out. I’ve even seen photos of cosplay contests where the photographer put black boxes over all the cosplayers’ eyes out of courtesy for their privacy (which is strange, I know, considering that cosplaying is all about being seen). And Ayano is unusually shy on top of that.
Renamon would have been nice to see… I’ve always been giving Ayano all the credit for the Krystal costumes, thinking she was the one who made them and put them together. But if someone else made them… then some MAD PROPS goes out to them as well! I’d love for them to make me a Fox costume, the only good Fox cosplay ive seen imho is this one
Thank you very much for the Event Horizon mention in your panel Mr. K. I was actually surprised and pretty happy to see that pop up!
