Decisive Cosplay Battle: Megu Kazamatsuri vs Devilish Midnight. Presented by LAW Entertaiment! (For Wagy)

Unread post by GolemGuardian »

Fuuto El Dorado. An upcoming fighting game, that had been in development for years now. Its wide variety of characters and the mechanics of each different map had gathered a large following. Some praising it heavily and some, as with many properties that become popular, criticizing its 'oversexualizing of many of the female fighters.' Not that it ever changed anything any of the revealed designs. Heck, one even had a slight upgrade - or downgrade as said critics would likely put it - to her outfit and revealed a little more skin. It even got them more followers, supporting them.

It even got them and their game a sponsorship from LAW. Either from management pushing for it, LAW's owner, who could say. But it definitely helped grow the franchise's audience even further. So much so a few select wrestlers were asked to be used for reference, adding a small number of new characters to the roster based off them as well. As well as one more little perk.

Maxsoft LLC, the publishing company for Fuuto El Dorado, had reserved a few slots at a popular convention. A standard Q and A with the development team and some of the voice cast. A live performance from an up and coming idol - Sano, Saitae, or some similar name - dressed as the main heroine of the game, lip syncing to the game's theme whilst fighting another character from it.

And lastly, the one that seemed to garner more attention than the others, would be two of LAW's wrestlers would be fighting at a live show. Not only, but the two would be cosplaying as certain characters from the games. Outside of actors or musicians in the league, this would likely be the closest to having a performance LAW would likely ever get.

Instead of using one of those, however, one of the newer, fresher talents was volunteered to participate in this live show.

"Aaaand done!" One of the makeup artists said, putting the last bit of gloss on the lavender-headed PI's lips. It had taken about an hour or two in the chair, much longer than Tokime's own regime ever took, but she was finally done. "Hm.... Actually, should we have put on a thicker eye shadow?" She asked the other artists, all of them huddling and discussing what touch ups could or should be added.

"Nah, she's fine!" The head developer said. "Megu is a magical princess, defending her kingdom on the front lines from any and every threat. Not some painted lady." The black haired woman came over, motioning for the detective to stand up. She looked Tokime up and down, nodding as she did so. "Nice. Very nice! You definitely are encapsulaing Megu Kazamatsuri perfectly!" She exclaimed, making the detective just slightly nervous.

"U-uh, thanks. I've had a lot of experience undercover, so I'm sure this will be fine." Taking a quick breath, resteeling herself, the detective turned back to the dev. "So, I read the script, but is there anything else I need to know? Like if our characters have history or something? I didn't find a lot of character relations or story when I was researching this."

"Understandable. The CEO hasn't let us put a lot of info out, believing playing things so close to chest would help pre orders. It has, of course." The dev put a hand around Tokime's shoulders, gently guiding her to the door. "But it also hurts us at events like this, if we do more. All you can know is what's on the script. And that the two of them have an... unpleasant rivalry. So feel free to give your co star a hell of a time. Now go go go! The show is starting in less than thirty seconds!" She said, all but pushing the private eye out the door as the game's main theme begun.
Spoiler
They didn't make the show too big, so all Tokime was allowed to do was walk into the small wrestling ring, waiting for whoever would be opposite her to join her in the ring. When she had, the two would mimic the character's intro lines to one another. As if the two were living the actual game.

"By my sword, I swear." The PI almost felt a little silly saying so, pretending to draw a sword Megu had, but she did not, and hold it in front of her. And with a flourish, she could point it forward at Devilish Midnight. "I will protect my dominion from your evil!"

Her opposite would then give her line and motion, followed by a projector turning on behind the two of them. A pair of health bars would appear on the wall, with the characters names above them. They really seemed to be going for the 'live action video game' angle. But there would be no time to drink anything else, with the announcer voice booming soon after and signaling the start.

"Ready!? FIGHT!!"

The choiche of employing fresh talents, especially one that has very recently debuted, could be seen as inappropriate from a business point of view compared to using enstabilished champions in regards to fulfilling one's part of a sponsorship bargain.
At the same time, performing well enough and satisfying the public demand and expectation, that being having someone that resembled as much as possible the charachter who were to be put at show, could greatly elevate a relatively obscure but rising star. Into a powerful and welcomed phenomenon.

That wasn't exactly Serenity's plan and she really could care less about becoming popular, a detriment in her wiew more than a plus, but her agent had very contrasting wiew.
And as always, she went along with what was ordered.

The dress up session was easy enough, she had earned compliments from the artists in charge of preparing her actually. Since she was already pretty similar in body type and usual outfit choiche to the character she would be impersonating for this event, she already used most product who were going to be necessary for her preparation.
Still, it was necessary to twing a bit with her hair and she had to put on colored lens but nothing that would impede her performance. After all the costume was very much a repaint of her standard attire, with some nice flower attached to her back.

And so. The eastern beauty would make her way towards the ramp who would introduce her to the arranged ring of the event.
She was a perfectionist. As such, she had briefed herself with all the materials relevant to her character attitude and backstory. Finding herself to be fairly in tune with it...

Devillish Midning, is a demonic entity who is servant to the Goddess of evil Kali. An herald of destruction, in the form of depravity and corruption.
Some speculate that she was once a common human, who sacrificed to the Goddess was made into one of her vessel, to prepare humanity for the impending doom of their planet. By making them more compliment with the fact and trasforming them into other servant of the Goddess.
She's alluring, mysterious and seductive. Attributes of Serenity's herself.

Purple smoke began to rise as the theme song of Devillish Midnight reverbed in the air.

And coming in front from it, was Serenity herself slowly and seductively dancing along with the tune.
Only her vague silhouette visible as the song rechead its peak.
The smoke dissipated, allowing her to strike a sexy pose for the fans, blowing a kiss for extra.
She would then enter the ring and just as her rival had done she would recite her line...

"I can see your deepest desire...
Let yourself be consumed, I assure you it's more pleasant than you imagine fufufu."


Before the fight was started.

As Tokime waited the few seconds before whoever played Devilish Midnight came out, she took a moment to just criticize some of the Maxsoft's decisions. Mostly how, despite being the main heroine, Megu didn't have as developed a story as her opponents' character. Or at least with released details. A princess who fights for her kingdom's safety. Playing it close to chest was one thing, but this was a little ridiculous, leaving the private eye to essentially make some of the character on the spot.

Not to mention her opponent actually had some effects for her entrance. It was only a little smoke, but still. 'Well, Midnight is a bit more popular right now,' she told herself. Before she could analyze - maybe a bit overly so - the wrestler playing Devilish Midnight stepped out. Tokime had to admit, other than possibly, slightly shorter hair, the woman may as well have been Devilish Midnight made real. 'Critiques aside, we really resemble our roles.' The detective looked the girl up and down. The cosmetics department really took pride in their work.

Soon they each gave one of their battle lines and the projection began, announcing the two performers to begin the show. Given they were wrestlers, the organizers had then given quite a bit of room to act as they saw fit. Just a few select spots here and there, as well as what the finale would be. But how to start? That was entirely up to them.

A test of strength was usually the defacto go to for wrestling, but given the fighting game theme Tokime decided that would be too slow a start. The audience wanted a fast paced show. With that in mind, and the ring being smaller to fit the feel of a fighting stage, the detective would move to close the little distance between them, aiming to nail Midnight in the chest with a rising knee.
