Cosplayer Phavorianne > Costume of Blanka from Street Fighter IV
About this Costume
- Personal Thoughts:
- Some friends of mine joked that after living in Brazil I would come back green like Blanka. So I said, sure why not!! XD
I'm really not happy with the black sandals I wore with it. Of course, with that statement, I guess I just drew attention to it. Footwear was a total oversight on my part, and I just don't have anything easily appropriate in my wardrobe. Next time I'll just wear my Havaianas and see if I like that any better. I won't go without shoes because the tights I bought are no longer available and I'm scared of putting runs in them! XD
- Styling Notes
- Since the cap is very big on me, I was able to cut away at the lace front to create the hairline. I cut as much as I could without cutting into the wefting. The lace is very cheap, so it doesn't stretch to fit. It also frays, so you have to fray check it when you cut it. I bought two long extension packs and sewed them in on all wefts starting from the bottom. I then used a razor to cut and layer the hair. I ran out of extensions and had to wear it as is, but I bought two more packs of short extensions to continue adding to the top.
