|Time Taken :||About 10 hours work (costume was not made by mysel|
|This was my first time cosplaying as Chun Li and was based on the first game she appeared in as it is the dark blue original.|
She has always been one of my fave characters ever and I always wanted to cosplay as her so I decided to get it done for Aya 05.
It was a commission from FanPlusFriend on eBay and I highly recommend them. I added a few extra details to the cheongsam (the frog closure and tightening the belt) and added a blue leotard under the dress for the underwear.
The boots were bought second hand from eBay and I painted them white and bleached the laces. The original boot colour was a dirty cream but a few coats of white fabric paint sorted that out!
The wrist bracelets were a private commission through LiveJournal (sadly I have forgotten the users name)and are made from foam, black satin material and plastic spikes painted silver.
The tights are tanned ice skating tights bought from a local dance supplies shop. They are strangly comfy but hold you in...A LOT!
It isn't the most comfy costume to wear - going to the bathroom is NOT an option as you have to remove almost everything! But I had alot of fun cosplaying as her. This costume was only worn once.
