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!

YaYa, I have only been to Anime Weekend Atlanta twice, but both times I have seen you and totally admire you and what you do. You've helped me realize that it's A-OK to love anime as an adult, and to let your passions guide your steps. I've started drawing again in part because you've inspired me so. Thank you.

I like the picture on the right very much. It's powerful, stern, and threatening. Makeup, costume, background...it's all fantastic. It would be so neat to watch a photoshoot.

Keep doing what you're doing! Much love!

Hi,
Stunning as usual. It seems it cannot be different when you combine great costume design with your beauty and unprecedented attractiveness. However there is one but (at least in my humble opinion). Namely the additional elements which are made from harder materials always look so plastic (bracelets in this case). Have you ever considered to use real metal instead? Obviously elements would be much heavier that way and probably more difficult to create, but I believe the overall experience could be even better than now. Such thing probably requires someone with skills for jewellery manufacturing.

Cheers
