DescriptionThis was made for a Street Fighter group at Dragon*Con 2010 (with Gamina as Chun Li and Mirromaru as Sakura.)
At first I tried making the classic Delta Red version (green sleeveless thong leotard), but it just didn't feel right. I realized the Shadaloo version would probably look more flattering, and I liked the design and color better anyway.
The construction is a bit tricky, with all those extra seams, but I think it was worth the effort. I used a slightly stretchy cotton fabric and dyed it myself because I couldn't find the right color anywhere, and I definitely wanted to use a sturdier fabric than spandex. The leotard is based on a boned corsage lining, the same method I used for my Ivy costume.
The armor was my first big Wonderflex project, and I love it!
I wasn't happy with the wig the first time I wore it, so for Leipzig Book Fair (March 2011), I revamped it with a lace front and re-braided it.
We received a lot of attention for our Street Fighter costumes, including lots of comments about Cammy's ass *lol* I think we made a great team, it's been so much fun cosplaying with Gamina and doing kickass photoshoots :) So we'll definitely make more Cammy & Chun Li outfits in the future!
Cost: EUR 160 / ~ US$ 205
