Cosplay: Quote from Cave Story by Risachantag Cosplay: Quote from Cave Story by Risachantag
Edit: Here's the YouTube video [link]

I was waiting on some photos from another photographer, but unfortunately the photos of this costume still haven't come through... so I'll share these photos from the stage at Supanova for the time being. =)

This is me in my Quote from Cave Story costume! I wanted to do something nice and simple, though I ended up putting quite a lot of work into making this costume.

The puppy plushie I made myself! The fur's so nice and soft. I made the top and scarf, bought and dyed the pants and modded the belt and headphones. The 'metal plate' on the hat is craft foam, sealed and textured to look like metal. The headphones light up too.

The most fun part was the guns, though! No doubt some of you will recognise the polar star there as a modded nerf gun: basically I glued on extra details, then painted and textured it. The Bubbler is a bubble gun that works. =) Again, it's repainted with extra parts added. Given that there was no concept art to work from, I had a fair bit of freedom there.

Best Cosplay award, Supanova 2011

Hey, can the polar star actually fire bullets or no?

Risachantag Featured By Owner May 1, 2014
No, the plastic add-ons make the Polar Star impossible to use as a nerf gun, you can't load it. The Bubbler works though.

Well, that's a simple solution. You could put a metallic rod through both of them, or glue the addon to the blaster to the actual loading mechanism, so that way you can easily load it.

Thanks, it was a really fun cosplay to make! I looked for a pattern when I made the puppy, but didn't find anything appropriate, so I made the pattern myself.

It's Bubbler in the Aeon Genesis translation and Bubbline in the Nicalis translation. To me both names are right.

SmashQueen Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Cave Story started off as a free indie game with no English translation. Aeon Genesis took it upon themselves to make one, trying to keep as close as possible to the original context. Their efforts allowed more people to enjoy CS and the game became popular. Then Nintendo and Nicalis got involved so an official translation, done with the original creator's consent, was produced.

Translating can be a tricky business. Two people could translate the same paragraph from one language to another and though the message would be the same, the wording could very well be different.

I use Bubbler and Bubbline interchangeably because I've played both versions and no matter which name is mentioned in conversation, everyone knows which silly weapon you're talking about.

I know that it began as n indie game:
Created by daisuke "pixel" amaya (clearly japanese), it was originally planned that there be several other levels(such as the wind fortress) Harder enemies, more obstacles, RPG-style gameplay, as well as quote being a girl(curly brace) rather than he is now. Balrog was to be a common enemy that looked like a white version of Puu Black that occasionally had propellers on their heads.

The very first test of the cave story game software was with the short game ikachan, a game about a squid trapped within caves and the only way to escape is to defeat the evil fish king of the cave. This was referenced within cave story, for pixel's official artwork feature ikachan on the back of quote's cap and the evil fish king mentioned before, or as e was and still is called, Ironhead, became a boss within the finished product. If you defeat Ironhead without taking damage, a swarm of iichan will appear during the cutscene where curly flotsamly floats away.

Sony is also buying a lil piece of cave story, as they are going to release a psp or ps3 version.

Pixel never wanted money, he only wanted people to like his games. He is currently working on a game for the iPhone with ikichan-style gameplay.

I kno about the translation issues. but only of the Chaco-Chako misspelling, not much more.

But apparently the bubbline's name is clearly mistaken in Aeon Genesis's rendition of the game.

(sorry to act like a know-it-all, I just dont want to feel like a know-none-at-all when it comes to cave story.)

But in all three versions I've played, they were nintendo, and I also saw that they changed balrog's message when he helps curly and quote escape the sacred grounds. after curly asks if his head is alright, rather than saying the original "I DON'T KNOW!"
He says:"A Little Beat Up."

-Kiwi out

Btw, I like your stories. I'll send you a fav.

Yeah, I know the history of CS, too. And like I said, different translators may wind up with a different wording, but none of them are "clearly mistaken". For example, "Huzzah!" is funny and it follows the general meaning from the original text (I think it was an archaic word for a battle cry, and Balrog is definitely announcing his presence). "Oh Yeah!" is also funny (somewhat) and it too follows the general meaning from the original text (in a way, we definitely know he's arrived). When it comes to eastern languages, it's not as easy as saying "Oh, well this word clearly means this!"

Don't believe me? Take a look at this journal entry and the comments that have translations. [link]

A quick example of how two people interpreted one line from the comic:

LlamaDoodle:
Geno: Ahh, they found us.
nintendosagekittygrl:
Geno: We've been spotted.

The wording is different, but the meaning is clear.

LlamaDoodle says it best when referring to the foreign comic: "I've sort of changed the wording a little bit for phrases which couldn't be directly translated into English."

It's the same thing with how Aeon Genesis and the Nicalis translators went about Cave Story. They did the best they could because not everything is clear cut between languages.

Lastly, it's great that you want to know as much as possible about Cave Story, but going around and saying that Aeon Genesis, a group that translated the game during their own free time because they appreciated the game, is "clearly mistaken" is disrespectful. You can disagree with people about which translation is right, but it all boils down to preferences and opinions.

You can be a know-it-all but don't shove it in people's faces.

Woah, that is an incredible cosplay that you made! you got all of the details perfect, and that television you made to look like the text box of cave story wii is really well-done.(food for thought: the sprite they made for quote's text box was actually a modified sue sprite.) And that's a really good jenka puppy. The only thing i'm wondering is: HOW DID YOU MAKE THE POLAR STAR THAT WELL?? either way, the whole thing is epic, the bubbline, the polar star, the puppy, the cap, the entire costume. :clap:
But, can you plz tell me how you made the polar star?

Sure, the Polar Star wasn't that hard, as I started with a nerf gun as the base. I built on some parts using sheet plastic and hot glue, to match the shape better, then spray painted the whole thing. The rest is all hand-painting and texturing, with brown, blue and silver paint, to give it a slightly 'battle-worn' look.
