Street Fighter



Inspiration: I honestly don't know what inspired me to cosplay Chun-Li. I'm not a huge Street Fighter fan, though I do enjoy watching my friends play the game. She's just such a classic video game character, and I got the urge to make her cute outfit :)

Design: While her basic 1p design is almost the same throughout the games, there are very slight differences. I kind of went for a general version of the character, not from any particular game. I included the gold trim on the hair bun covers though, as it gives them a lot more detail that looks nice. I opted to not do the dragon design on the obi, however, as I just wanted the costume finished and that would have been a lot of extra work; but there are plenty of versions where it's plain white. Oh, I obviously also decided to make the black version, though I might make a blue version later on as well.

Construction: I had no idea that putting all the gold trim on the dress would be such a PAIN! Ugh it took so long... Everything else was pretty easy though. I cheated a little on the boots and just bought white knee-high Chuck Taylors.
