A company called CosplayHouse has several Krystal cosplay products available for purchase and customization, right now. While it's anyone's guess about the quality of these offerings, the fact that Krystal is available at all, as a character, is pretty cool.
Here's what they have on offer:
Krystal Adventures Costume - $280.50; Comes with:
- Arm and Leg Armor
- Shoulder Armor
- Neck Piece
- Head Piece
Krystal Assault Costume - $176.80; Comes with:
- Body Suit
- Shoulder Pads
- Krystal's Staff - $140.00
- Krystal Assault Boots - $51.16
It looks like none of these come with a wig or headband, while the Adventures costume doesn't include the tail, jewelry, or shoes. However, it looks like this company is more than willing to customize and adapt costumes to requests. They certainly tailor to all sizes.
Here's a fun little 3D scene by Nicholas Kary. He posted his 3D model on SketchFab, a place for 3D artists to upload their 3D models where they can be viewed and interacted with, like a YouTube video, but for 3D models. You can orbit all around this scene, change the angle, even change the textures. Give it a try right here, in your browser.
Here's a quick Krystal speedpaint from TheMoonfall. This was the first time that TheMoonfall did a digital piece without lines to work from. You can view the finished artwork in her gallery.
On an unrelated note, this posting-once-a-day thing is starting to get difficult. I'm beginning to run out of readily available material. Oh sure, I have stuff that needs to be posted, but it is going to take a bit of work before it's ready. If you guys know of anything that you think should be featured here, please email me with your ideas. Even if you already submitted it to me, send me a reminder email! Thanks everyone!
If you've been following the comments on the Krystal Archive, you might have seen this project by NJFox. He's attempting to make his own Star Fox Adventure game, a sequel, this time featuring Krystal as the main character. It's a bit rough around the edges, but NJFox keeps developing it consistently. I hope to see a lot of progress on this fangame in the future!
According to NJFox, the goal of the game is to fix your crashed Arwing by locating six parts scattered all over Cape Claw. Some are unreachable until you obtain certain Staff upgrades (some obtained from bosses). Eventually, he wants to add side quests and additional story. NJFox is new to game development, and is learning the programming as he goes. He's primarily a 3D artist.
NJFox just uploaded the second demo version of the game for you all to try. You can view more screenshots and download the demo versions here. If you want to try the demo, you must download both the executable file (.exe) and the Data folder that goes with it. The easiest way to get these is to select the top-level demo folder and then choose Download from the options, which will compress it into a zip folder (about 100 MB). For now, the demo is Windows only.
Back in early January, Nintendo features several photos of Christmas decorations submitted by Miiverse users. Of the photos, three of them had Krystal featured prominently (along with other Star Fox members). Pretty sweet! Sorry for taking so long to post about this. Better late than never, right? Here's the original post.
Thanks to Alfore and everyone else for the heads up.
SchattenKitsune666 created another MMD video, this time with both Krystal and Renamon rigs by HBR102989. The song is "Come Alive" by Mutrix ft. Charity Vance (The Two Friends Remix).
Whether you love or hate MMD's, this is the very last one I have to post. Until content creators make more, I'll have to post other things.
Hey guys! A lot of you have requested friending on Wii U, Steam, and other gaming platforms. Sadly, I wasn't active nearly enough for that sort of thing. But now, with the ease and portability of the Nintendo Switch, I'd be happy to add you guys as friends, both for occasional multiplayer games and just to hang. I'll try to add everyone who asks, but keep in mind that the Nintendo Switch only allows 300 friends, so I might not be able to add everyone. My friend code is "SW-0564-4521-2526" and my username is "anthroid". Notice the Star Fox emblem as my icon as well. If you send a request, please comment below with your username so I can match you guys up with your usernames here.
If you're having trouble, this video shows how to manage friends and request friendship via friend codes on the Nintendo Switch. Oh, and feel free to share friendcodes amongst yourselves in the comments.
After all the Switch, Zelda, and Ayano hype, I'm getting back to a schedule of prepared posts. So let's get to it! Here's a video of SchattenKitsune666 practicing lipsyncing with the ShinyWarg Krystal MMD rig by animating some of the unused voice clips from Star Fox Adventures.
Well folks! It's finally here. Launch day for one of the most anticipated Nintendo systems, and probably THE most anticipated Legend of Zelda ever. From what I'm hearing in the gaming news press, the hype is real and well-deserved. Zelda, in particular, is getting some of the highest scores for any video game ever. At the same time, it looks like it's going to be quite a bit more difficult than previous Zelda games. I can't wait to try both the system and the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild tonight at midnight when I pick up my pre-order. I hope you all get the chance to do the same soon. I will have some initial thoughts on the game and Nintendo Switch tomorrow. Stay safe out there!
The sixth and final video from Further Confusion 2016 is a rather short one. Lylat-Mobius Adventurer took footage of Ayano wearing her summer swimsuit late Sunday evening. Ayano walked around for a few minutes, visiting the concert/dance/rave. Be warned, there are flashing lights, and a lot of audio had to be cut due to copyright claims.
