Cosmic Cosplay for the week of the 16th to the 22nd July

Ruby Renoir in "Generosity"
Ivy in "Momoka
Hi all and welcome to Cosmic Cosplay post. Cosmic Cosplay is a weekly post that (normally) happens on a Sunday were I talk about the new Cosplay Deviants sets, any Cosplay Deviants news I learn about, information about updates for CosmicBreak and three DreamClix ideas/designs.

First off are this week's Cosplay Deviants sets. There was a new set on Wednesday from the new deviant Ruby Renoir. The set is called Generosity and in it she cosplays as a humanoid version of Ruby from My Little Pony. The set on Saturday was a set from the deviant Ivy. This new set is called Momoka and in it she cosplays as Momoka one of FAKKU! mascots.

Next is the CosmicBreak update news. The brand new Flute Gara has been added to the game. Flute Gara features two new characters. These are Rone and Orin's fellow musician Fluene Affetto, and Mialy's junior and admirer Illumis. Now that Rone, Orin, and Fluene have all arrived at the Cosmic Ark, they can perform together. Rone Amabile AM2 and Orin Fortissimo AM2 have gained the ability HARMONIZE; when they use this ability in conjunction with Fluene Affetto AM2's HARMONIZE, the three will play a song, granting Extend Support, Extend Support ALPHA, Extend Support BETA, and the new Revive Sound effect. Revive Sound is a special status effect that may only be granted once, and allows the affected unit to automatically recover 150 HP one time just as its HP hits 0. Also three new Mega class Garapons are now available. The Mega SUGOI Gara and Mega EVE Gara each contain a wide selection of rare moe characters, and the Mega ROBO Gara contains a handpicked line-up of CosmicBreak's most popular robots. The second chibi in the Mini Chibi Collection Campaign has been added to the Rt store. This time it is a chibi of Elisa. ALL Rt Shop content, including Robots (except for Elisa-chan), Items, Parts, and Weapons, has been marked down 20%! This sale will only be in effect until 23th of August, so now is the time to buy that weapon you have always been curious about, or stock up on Tune Up supplies. And lastly in celebration of the big update this week, there is a weeklong 1.5x multipliers on UC, Exp, and Drop Rate. The multipliers will remain on until the next maintenance on Wednesday night/Thursday morning.

Now for the last section of the post, the DreamClix Section. This week I am doing ideas for Yugi Mutou from Yu-Gi-Oh!, the Yu-Gi-Oh! team ability and a Convention hall map for Cosplay Deviants. But first here is a design of Ivis from CosmicBreak.

Next is Yugi Mutou from Yu-Gi-Oh!. A youngster who grew up playing games by himself, Yugi later received the pieces of the ancient Egyptian artefact called the Millennium Puzzle from his grandfather, Sugoroku. As such, Yugi spent eight years trying to solve it. When he eventually succeeded, Yugi unknowingly undid a binding spell created by the ancient Egyptian pharaoh Atem, who had sealed the magic of the Shadow Games in the Puzzle and the other Millennium Items thousands of years ago in order to stop the victory of the evil demon Zorc Necrophades. The Pharaoh had bound the spell with his own name and sealed his own soul within the puzzle; when Yugi solved the puzzle, both the magic of the Shadow Games and Atem's soul were released, and Yugi's body became host to the spirit of Atem, resulting in Yugi gaining another half while changing the youngster's life forever. At first, Yugi has no awareness of the presence of this second personality within himself, which emerges in times of stress and takes control of his body. The spirit of Atem also would emerge from the Millennium Puzzle to take control of Yugi's body for the purposes of dueling others in the card game; rather than entirely supplanting Yugi's personality, as he had before, there was a degree of interplay between the two, wherein Yugi was aware of his surroundings and the events of the duel, but unaware of the presence of the pharaoh guiding his hand. After a contest with Ryo Bakura, in which Yugi's soul was removed from his body, he and his friends came to understand that an additional soul existed within Yugi's body when the pharaoh's soul, left in the body alone, took control of it and defeated Bakura in their contest. This led to "Dark Yugi" being referred to as "the other Yugi" by Yugi's friends, and as "the other me" or "my other self" by Yugi himself. Additionally, Dark Yugi calls Yugi "partner". When it was revealed that "Dark Yugi" was the spirit of the pharaoh, he became known as the Nameless Pharaoh, as his true name was unknown even to him, although everyone besides Yugi himself would refer to Atem as 'Yugi' nonetheless. Solicitations and summaries for the English-language release of the manga refer to the pharaoh as Yu-Gi-Oh, from the title of the series meaning "King of Games." Additionally, various English-language sources, notably video games, draw on the Japanese terminology and refer to the character as Yami Yugi. The English language translation of the series began referring to the character as Yami for the duration of the second season (to justify the "Yami Yugi" moniker without having to involve the Japanese language in the explanation), but this dropped early in the third season, and characters began to refer to Atem as "Pharaoh" without explanation to the sudden reversal of naming. On the other hand, Atem calls Yugi 'Yugi' instead of partner. When the pharaoh takes control of Yugi's body, Yugi's undergoes a growth spurt, gaining additional streaks of yellow in his hair, and has differently shaped eyes. Additionally, in the first series, Yugi's eyes were purple and Atem's were red. Also during the Duelist Kingdom arc, his shoes change when the Pharaoh takes over, from tennis shoes to what seemed like heeled boots. Whether or not such a transformation occurs within the fictional "world" of the series, however, is unclear, as no characters ever remark on his physical change, though some remark him as 'looking taller on TV'. Yugi's voice changes – in the manga, when the transformation happens in the presence of Anzu Mazaki (Téa Gardner in the English dub), who had her eyes closed at the time, the Pharaoh's voice was so different that she did not realize that Yugi was the speaker. In the English language dub of the first episode of the NAS/Studio Gallop anime, Seto Kaiba also notices a change in Yugi's voice. On several other occasions, other characters who possess Millennium Items are able to tell the two apart. In the 4kids dub, Yugi's thoughts while under the Pharaoh's control have the voice of Yugi himself instead of the Pharaoh (with the exception of the Doma Orichalcos arc, where Yugi's soul is captured), while in the Japanese dub (as well as the uncut English dub), the voice retains that of the current host. Yugi has a mother and a father; his father is away on business, so Yugi does not see him, and his mother has a brief appearance in the managa. Yugi's parents were written out in the English dub done by (the nightmare) 4Kids. He should have two specials called “ALTER EGO: Other Yugi”, “Kuribo”, Defend, Psychic Blast and Support.
ALTER EGO: Other Yugi: Give Yugi Mutou a power action that deals no pushing damage and replace this character with #YGO-002 Yami Yugi on its orange starting line. After actions resolve, even if this power is lost, Yami Yugi may use Outwit or Perplex. This power cannot be countered.
Kuribo: Yugi Mutou can use Regeneration. Once per turn Yugi Mutou can ignore all deal to him from a single attack.
He should have about four and five clicks of health and starting combat values of Speed 7, Attack 9, Defence 17, Damage 1 and Range 4 with one target. His team ability should be the Yu-Gi-Oh! and his keywords should be Kid, Duelist and Mystical. The next Yu-Gi-Oh idea should be Yami Yugi and the next standard Other section idea should be Sam Witwicky’s pogs.

Next is the Yu-Gi-Oh! team ability: Characters with the Yu-Gi-Oh! team ability can use Perplex if they are adjacent to two or more friendly characters adjacent to them, but only on them self. Uncopyable.

Lastly is a Convention Hall map for Cosplay Deviant. As the name of the map shows, this will be a Convention Hall, must likely based of Comic Con. It should be an indoor map with lots of walls and hindering terrain. I plan on having a WizKids (or NECA) stand and a Cosplay Deviants stand, most likely in the starting zone.

Well that is it for this post. Until next time, Mecha Up.
