Kigurumi cosplayer Elh Melizée finished a Krystal cosplay about one year ago. I never got around to posting about his costume, but I'm making up for it now!
The costume was completed in stages, with the initial mask being worked on at least as far back as August 2015. The mask was made using papercraft techniques, then smoothed using resin and fiberglass, before eyes and fur were applied. The costume also included a custom made staff and tail. I'm not sure how those were made. I'm also not sure if the Assault suit was made or bought, but I suspect it was purchased.
It's not yet finished, but Elh is also working on a full-size replica of the gatling gun from Star Fox Assault to go with the cosplay.
The cosplay was first shown off at Madrid Games Week 2018, probably on the 20th of October, 2018. There, Elh hung out at the Nintendo Booth, got a copy of Starlink from Ubisoft, and played some Taiko (the drum-based arcade game).
Elh Melizée plans to go to Madrid Games Week 2020, and appear on the cosplay catwalk.
