Chun Li alternate Fanime 2014 sitting by LexLexy Chun Li alternate Fanime 2014 sitting by LexLexy
I wish I wasn't so tired when I was able to cosplay Chun Li. I will definitely wear again to the next con I go to and arrange some photo shoots. Really proud of this cosplay.

Cosplay made by me

Thank you very much! Your cosplay is gorgeous as well!

I've been asked a few times about how I made it so I might just put up some progress and tutorial photos up soon. But here's a breakdown:

-I used goldenrod Duck Cloth: material that's thick enough to not fold or bend too much when I moved around.

-cut, shaped and sewed the cloth like it was a corset but with only three panels. (the sewn parts are on the side of my waist. I needed it to shape the curve of my waist. If I cut it out as one long straight waistband it would bend and move around and not stay still.

-I have the game on my PC so I used a model viewer to get the general design of the lines and hand painted them on with acrylic. The duck cloth held onto it really well. 

-I found some sturdy materials similar to boning for the back of the band and sewed them in vertically. Then I sewed a few hooks to help close it. Very similar to a corset but I placed them close enough so that you can't see the hooks.

It's kind of hard to describe with some photos but I hoped this was able to give you a general idea. :)

I tried looking at an in-game model through XNALara, but a tutorial would still be very much appreciated :meow:
