I'm going as Lucrecia for the next upcoming convention in feburary and with the costume I'm making plushies. I'm either making a Sephiroth plushie or a Vincent Turk one. I can't decide which one to stick with and one of my friends suggested I make two of them. Should I make both plushies or which one would be more appropriate? I can't decide!:confused:

Sephy would get you recognized quicker. But I would go for both -- February's a long time away ^_^.

Indeed ^_^ I always tell myself "No, you may not have any more plushies!" and end up having twice as many anyway ^_^ Never too many!

Cloud Strife is dead sexy hot! :p Unfortunately, Lucrecia is not associated with him in any way, so that wouldn't work out.:(

((LOL DO A HOGO. Since Lucrecia loved him. (but he didn't love her..we all what happens.))

I think you mean Hojo but.... I'll see how Vinny and Sephrioth plushies turn out. I never really made human plushies, just stuffed animals so this might be a fun, learning experience. You're actually the first person to come up to me and say to make a Hojo. The only thing I don't want to do is to make too many plushies to carry around the convention on top of carrying brochures/info and shooping bags from the dealer's room. It could be a pain in the ass plus get one of them stolen like someone did with my beanie baby owl at Otakon. :(

Actually as I was told, Lucrecia didn't fully love him either and the main reason she went out with him was because she could suceed in her career... and that's where thing went wrong. And what the hell is this about Vincent proposing to her in the game before she ran away from him?

((My friend was psyched about getting a Lab Coat so she could dress as Lucrecia!))

::Mouths drops:: NO! .... NO! I wanna gett all of the attention from the FF7 Bishounen cosplayers!! I need to Glomp 'em all! I Gotta Glomp 'em all! Hardly anybody wants to cosplay as Lucrecia and if I find a Vinny there's probably gonna be a make out show (unless he has horrible breath or it's a girl cosplaying as him)!! X-D

LoL, I won't be offended. I'm going as her because hardly anybody goes as her. And one of the science teachers in my school has no problem letting me borrow a lab coat:)

On top of It I might go as a Resident Evil zombie, once employed by Umbrella the next day :P

suggestion so you dont have to worry about carrying the plushies around.. velcro em to your costume.. like on the shoulders ^^ do a sephy on one shoulder and a vincent on the other.. that would be keen ^^

wow thats a great idea!

Im planning to do a Sorata Arisugawa (from "X") costume, and i have a Arashi UFo Catcher doll. I thought it would be funny to carry it around, calling it babe and saying "my destiny is to die for the woman i love, babe." you know different Sorata sayings.

oh by the way look what i just bought off ebay

Naw... that would sort of look gay though. ::thinks:: Unless... if I can get them to sit upright. I'm passion on the Hojo idea because I don't like the sick bastard and neither do a lot of people:P.

Besides, the lab coat would probably not be mine because someone in the science department in my school is thinking of letting me borrow a lab coat for my Lucrecia costume. If not, there's Ebay.

Hell...since I have nothing better to do with my time, I'd make the whole FF7 cast of plushies. But that's me. I have no life. I think the velcro idea rocks!! I may have to use it sometimes.

.... that's a good idea. Especially if you wanna sell them since there's not a whole lot of FF7 plushies out anymore. That is if you are good at it and the quality looks good.

I did catch a Hojo cosplayer at Otakon ^__^. But it was a chick. If anyone goes as a hot Hojo for Katsucon... and is a guy, look for me and we'll talk... :p

As for the vincent and Lucrecia issue, there's a huge debate if she really loved him or not.

Someone who made a Lucrecia site (http://www.finalheaven.org/lucrecia/) theorized that she loved Vincent, but she loved her job more. The person also did pointed out (and I didn't actually see this) that Vincent tried to propose to her in the game, but she got scared and ran away. Since she was working with Hojo at the time... and I could understand this... she thought that he was the key of success for her life and allowed him to impregnant her. And as we all know, that pretty much backfired and she completely regretted getting it on w/ him or becoming his test subject (or his bitch I would most likely say). And he didn't love her either or let her hold their child Sephiroth when he was just born.

But there's another theroy that she just didn't love him and she tried her best to avoid him as possible like you just said, but it pretty much follows the same lines why she went w/ Hojo instead. And some proof of it is the dialogue when Vincent found Lucrecia in the cavern (read the dialogue @ http://www.finalheaven.org/lucrecia/dialogue.html).
She kept telling him to stay away from her and was more interested about Sephiroth tha him. She could have told him to stay away because she has JENOVA in her and could snap and harm him like Sephiroth did to everybody in Nibelheim... or that she doesn't want him to be in her space. And for being interested in Sephiroth, that's kind of a mother thing to do is to wonder where the Hell's your child and how he's doing, even though she lamented about not being able to be around him or even hold him.

Still... it's a huge complicated issueto figure out because if she loved him or not, the effects would still be the same because she's that type of person who loves her job and works her ass off. It probably won't ever be solved unless Squaresoft explains it themselves or remakes the game.:confused:

there's also a Hojo site that theorizes that Hojo and Lucrecia were in love. Seeing as Lucrecia never once showed any emotion or affection towards Vincent in any of the scenes you see them in. Just because Vincent loved her doesn't mean it was reciprocated. There was however a scene where Hojo and Lucrecia were holding each other outside of Nibelheim. And I remember a part where she screamed at Vincent and ran away from him back into the Shinra Mansion where.. Hojo was.

But Hojo and Lucrecia isn't a popular coupling.

But Hojo and Lucrecia isn't a popular coupling.

I dunno about that... but yes, I agree that Lucrecia didn't quite show any affection for Vincent becak in any of the scenes... but the fact she fled to the mansion is probably because that where she was also staying. In a lot of times, researchers who travel stay in or near places where their research is... and a lot of FF7 fans had predicted that she had been staying at the mansion, not just Hojo. And perhaps so did Vincent since he was their bodyguard. Why the hell would Shinra get them all a hotel room when they had their place suitable for living.... for FREE! Even though she did go up to the mansion, we don't know where she exactly went (bedroom, lab, etc.) or who she first encountered when she got upset. We just don't know because it hasn't been shown.

why would Vincent propose to her... or look like he was? I actually went back playing FF7, went back to the scene and I could just about make out that Lucrecia yanked her arm away from Vincent and ran... which meant perhaps he was proposing or showing some sort of affection to her by holding her hand. Perhaps they were secretly dating (knowing how mysterious Vincent can be) or why would Vinny go up to a random stranger or a girl he doesn't know and sort of ask her for marriage? And I could be wrong that he probably wasn't doing that either... but he seemed real intimately close to her or he wouldn't have made that comment after seeing Hojo holding her, "If she's happy... then I don't mind..."

And then I would sort of have to rebound the "Hojo and Lucrecia Were in Love" theory with Sephiroth coming about. GIRLS: would you want to have sex with a guy, who you have been working with just to have a baby and give it up easily? I don't think so. And I don't ink Lucrecia planned to have Sephiroth sacrificed to being some test subject she perhaps knew that was horrific. Hojo seemed to wanted to take advantage of Lucrecia because he doesn't get out often and lives under a rock in the basement, getting a "Florescent Light" tan (a lifeguard indoor pool joke). And perhaps he wanted a young, fresh sample to test on and no one would of had the right mind to give up their own child and have some unknown substance... or a virus as the Ancients called it, injected into their bodies. And there would be no cure if any crazy stuff happened.

The only female colleuge he was mainly around was Lucrecia and she seems like a timid, soft-spoken type of person. She goes far beyond blaming herself that she's not Sephiroth's mom or perhaps doesn't tell Vincent that she's after Hojo until he discovers it ler on... which are signs of shyness as I studied in Psychology class recently. And I could be wrong on that part, you decide. But she seems a bit insecure when she just took off from Vincent just like that.

So Hojo conviences her enough to allow him to seduce her and right after she has their child, he takes him away from her and starts expermenting on him and injects him with JENOVA cells. The one thing that surprises me about Lucrecia is that she allowed herself and her baby to become test subjects of Hojo's when she's been working w/ him as an assistant and she could of at least knew a little bit of the effects of what JENOVA cells did to a human being. Or what the Hell has she been doing in the Shinra mansion basement the whole time? Slacking off on the job? I doubt it if she was hired to work w/ him.

Buit seriously... you tell me that Hojo loved Lucrecia that he injected a virus in her, their child, himself and even dragged Vincent into all of it and start screwing him up, along w/ Cloud, Zack (hmm... What the Hell were they doing in the basement of the mansion where Hojo did his experiments on Vincent) and also tried to get his hands on Aeris and Red XIII. No... he got SHINRA to kill Aeris' father and ordered a team to search Ilfana, who fled to protect her child, and take her and the child for test experiments.

And we all know Hojo very well better than Lucrecia and Vincent; he was completely nuts. If he had loved Lucrecia or his child, he would have cared for their feelings first then using them for his experiments. Professor Gast is a good example of how well he treated his subjects and he did give a damn for his wife who was an Ancient and his child, Aeris (In fact in one of his recordings when Ilfana looked a bit upset, Gast agreed to stop the camera which showed that he didn't want to corner or violate her). Hojo, unlike Gast, did not care for what his test subjects felt and therefore, he loved science more than anything. He was willing to get whatever he wanted out o science which showed that how sick and twisted he was.

I know this is an older thread, but if you're looking for a Hojo and a Vincent (myself and my roommate) to hang out with at Katsukon, give me a message on AIM and we'll see if we can't work something out.

::Grins mischeviously::

Hmm... maybe we can work something out. However, I'm going as Yuni from DDR on Saturday for a masquerade, but I'm definetly going as Lucrecia for Friday night and perhaps Sunday, depending on how much attention I get from my Yuni thing. I heard that a couple people here are going as FF7 characters recently (especially friday nightas I hear) and me most likely being the only Lucrecia cosplayer... what the hell (even the JENOVA cosplayer is going to show up at Katsucon!)? I was originally going as Fuujin, but it's too much of a hassel to carry 3 costumes and having a chance that I might be boarding the Metro so... I don't wanna be carrying around too much luggage!

Hey, is your Vincent cosplayer going as the Turk or the gothic, future form?

Hojo

Gothic. And after the two days of slave labor it took me to sew that damn cloak (never again the stretch velvet!) he'd damn well better be dead. =P

Where did you get the picture to go by for your costume or did you just go by the boxy characters??
