  • Description
    Chun-li was the first female character I loved from video-games. Who didn't love her spinning-bird kick?! This cosplay led to my first professional gig and I had a great time. The dress is made from a shiny, metallic nylon/spandex fabric with yellow appliques to match. Made the bun-covers and hand-painted them. I created the bracelets from rolls of tape and cake-frosting tips (and it looked pretty leathal!) At comic-con, I wore silver-painted boots which were more true to character, but for the show I wore huge, white go-go boots!
