Cosplayer HezaChan > Costume of Juri Han from Street Fighter IV
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I found out while looking at reference work that there were a lot of inconsistencies. So I picked aspects that I liked best and went with them. (For instance, in the game Juri doesn't have buckles on her top's straps, and in artwork she does) I had the kind of fabrics that I wanted to use already in mind and it was fun going out and trying to find them. I wanted a lot of texture instead of flat colors of the same types of fabrics.
The top is a combination of a purple stretch knit with pink vinyl and black vinyl with a nice leather texture. It is kept stiff by using heavy fusible interfacing. Each dome stud was set by hand because I don't own an awesome bedazzler. The wig was by far the most difficult wig I've worked on but I love how it turned out!
- Personal Thoughts:
- So Juri is pretty much one of the most awesome Street Fighter characters ever. She's crazy, evil, and has an awesome hair-do! I was also attracted to her right away due to her awesome color scheme. She has all my favorite colors in her outfit!
- Styling Notes
- The skin top makes the bangs a bit hard to style since they don't always want to lay flat, but I'd rather have the skin top than no skin top. Odango was made by carving styrofoam eggs and cones, and wrapping/gluing/hairspraying the hair around it. Then the base wig was stubbed and caulked, and once dried odango were added over the stubs.
- Wig Review
- Love it. Very thick, nice skin part on the top and down the middle. Wonderful wig for pigtailed characters with parts!
