Cosplayer Adora > Costume of Chun Li from Street Fighter Alpha
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- It was hard finding the right color of blue for Chun Li's body suit so I had to use a sparkly blue four way spandex and use the wrong side. I lined it with a lightweight teal spandex so the sparkly side didn't scratch my skin. The vest used a combination of twill, satin, and kona cotton since it was also difficult to find the right color of blue. Yes, I decided to use three layers of fabric to construct the vest and it's nicely lined too! The yellow applique details used a bit of yellow-gold satin with interfacing to give some heft. Those things were attached onto the vest using Heat n' Bond which was nice! Since it was Halloween, I used two beer cozies to make her cuffs and glued on some white studs with E6000 to make them stick on. The stripes on the body suit and the hair ties were made using yellow spandex while the yellow border n the vest used bias tape.
- Personal Thoughts:
- This was a totally rushed Halloween costume to go with my boyfriend's Ryu, but I was happy that so many people liked our outfits
- Styling Notes
- I also used the Odango Buns in Spanish brown for the wig and they attached on like a dream!
