Cosplay street fighter Chun Li
Why you should go as Chun Li at the next party
There are plenty of costumes available on the market. But if you want to stand out, you should cosplay as Chun Li from Street Fighter.
This page will try to convince you to dress up as Chun Li, make friends and enemies and basically enjoy a good time.
Why a character from Street Fighter ?
In my opinion, a big point in cosplay is that other people should recognize you. You can perfectly imitate a character and have the perfect dress, but if that character is not known to other people, they can't really enjoy your masterpiece.
Everybody knows Street Fighter.
Street Fighter was released in 1987, making it one of the older games that still have sequels today. It became widely popular with the release of Street Fighter II: The World Warrior in 1991, a fight game with several characters, easy controls and many special moves.
The game knows a true fan-base and was even filmed into a movie.
Why Chun Li ?
Chun Li was introduced in Street Fighter II as a playable character. She's a character trained in several martial arts and was the first female fighting character in the series.
She made the fighting game also popular amongst women.
Another point is, she looks hot! If you are going to dress up as a game character, it's better to have a cool outfit to aim at.
She has different appearances throughout the different games, but she is usually wearing a modified blue qipao (chinese dress).
In the Street Fighter movie, Chun Li was starred by Ming-Na Wen. In The Legend of Chun Li, she was starred by Kristin Kreuk. The resemblance of Chun Li in both movies is totally not like the games.
