I recently did an awesome photoshoot with Benny Lee :iconbenny-lee: in a Chinese Restaurant. As you know, the backgrounds settings for the Street Fighter games can be super random, and Benny was ingenious enough to secure a space for us at a local restaurant before they opened for Dim Sum in the morning. Of course we stayed to nom after the shoot!
I know I've posted a ton of Chun Li photos but I just got all these amazing images back and I would love to share more with you!

CharacterL: Art Nouveau Chun Li cosplay (designed by :iconrazvan-sedekiah:),
Costume made and modeled by me
Photo by Benny Lee :iconbenny-lee:
Chun Li gallery is up on my website!!
Head over to my site to read the full construction notes on how I made this costume and check out my favorite photos of Chun Li.

Costume thoughts: I absolutely loved the design by :iconrazvan-sedekiah: and thought it was a great stylish translation of an Iconic character. I created the full costume, using luxurious fabrics such as dupioni silk and silk taffeta. All the trims and swirls are embroidered on, free hand. I had a lot of fun making the charms, hair buns and spike wristlets. I read the spikes in the design artwork as ivory or marble instead of metal, and in keeping with the turn of the century art nouveau style, my spikes are an opalescent ivory color. Some people remarked that it looks like I'm not wearing underwear - well, I am wearing 3 pairs of tights so I am decent lol. Again, it's to follow the art design accurately.
I also cut up a pair of white pleather boots and embroidered the gold swirls on that. The charms and the boots might be my favorite part on this costume!

Really cool costume, your facial expression makes the chun le-image really believable (Badass but with a hint of a grin, sign of dominance), great job!
