Harajuku culture

Naruto Rin

Rin was a sweet and friendly girl who cared deeply for her comrades. She shares many similarities with Sakura Haruno, such as their prowess in medical techniques. She also had the same position in the love triangle of her team; Obito had a crush on her, but she had a crush on Kakashi. Her feelings were not as obvious as Sakura’s for Sasuke. However, but she nevertheless made it a point to help Kakashi whenever she could. She was also much nicer to Obito than Sakura initially was to Naruto, never insulting him and staying by his side for as long as she can during his death. Whenever Kakashi and Obito began arguing, Rin tried to break up the arguments and would not take sides.

Street Fighter Cosplay

Street Fighter Cosplay, Street Fighter Chun Li cosplay, Chun Li is a very hot role in cosplay world.
Chun-Li is a character in the Street Fighter series which is a video game produced by Capcom. She is the first female playable character to appear in a 1-on-1 fighting game. Hun-Li was the only female and the youngest character in the game, described in Street Fighter II, while not as physically powerful as the other characters; she was by far the quickest. Her most famous attack is the Hyakuretsukyaku, where she repeatedly kicks her opponent from a tilted standing position with incredible speed.

chun li street fighter cosplay

Chun-Li’s name

Chun-Li’s name is Mandarin, Chun means spring, Li means beautiful, so her name means she is a single young girl filled with the beauty of spring. Older official sources from the early 90s indicate Chung was Chun-Li’s surname, although it is worth noting this could very well not be the case anymore. In the live-action Street Fighter movie, Chun-Li was given the surname Zang/Xiang, but Capcom has not officially recognized it.

Chun-Li’s cosplay costume

Chun-Li’s cosplay costume has differed several times in the Street Fighter series, as well as in official art and cameos she has made in other works. She is known for her very muscular thighs. She is 5 feet 6 1/2 inches according to her Street Fighter Alpha 3 biography.

Chun-Li‘s cosplay costume is a Qipao, a Chinese dress imported over from Manchuria, yet popular among girls during the early 20th century. Her cosplay costume is modified to allow a far wider range of movement than a normal Qipao. She also wears white combat boots and blue leotard with dark brown sheer pantyhose with her Qipao. Her Qipao is blue with golden accents. She was originally supposed to wear a peach-colored Qipao, as seen in her in-game profile and ending in the original Street Fighter II.

Chun Li’s hairstyle

Her hairstyle is called “ox horns”, a typical style in which Chinese children dress their hair; depictions of girls in Chinese paintings frequently show girls in ox horns.

During the Alpha series, she chose to wear them unadorned, while in the remaining games, she uses silk brocades and ribbons to cover them, colored white to signify the mourning of her father. These silk brocades and ribbons that cover them are sometimes called bao.

In Street Fighter 4, when wearing her alternate costume, she wears her ox horns unadorned, just like in her Alpha appearance, only this time it’s held by red ropes with golden balls at the tip.

Chun Li’s Personality

Chun-Li is generally a cheerful woman. She is often happy and excited when she wins a fight, mainly with her friends. As part of police Interpol she takes her job very seriously and will try her best to complete a mission. When it comes to fighting Chun-Li tends to get quite competitive with other female fighters, but after her fights with a few of them she becomes allies with them and possibly become friends.

Of course, the similarity ends with his black hair and reddish eyes. Sebastian often describes himself through his catchphrase “I am simply one hell of a butler”. The phrase plays on the word “demon” and the phrase “to the end”. It can also translate to “I am a demon and a butler”. In Funimation’s English translation, this phrase becomes “I am a devilishly talented butler” or “I am one hell of a butler” which is, obviously, another play on his demonic origins.

How to wear cosplay wig?

Blue Curl Vocaloid Miku Cosplay WigFor cosplayers, fashion cosplay wigs are essential thing. Wigs are often useful for cosplay costume . They save you from cutting, dying or styling your own hair, allow you to create insane styles, and you can put one on and be ready to go instantly – it only ever needs styling once! Furthermore, you can sew, glue, and do all sorts of things to wigs which aren’t possible with real hair.But many people have problems when they wear the wig, especially the fist time.

Wig Cap

Wig cap

Wig cap is the basic tool to wear cosplay wig. Try to get a color to match your wig, or a neutral blonde colored one. It’ll hide your hair, secure the wig better and make it more comfortable to wear. You can make one yourself using the foot part of tights, and short stockings are ideal since you can use the foot part and have the thick elasticized top to grip tightly round your head. Whatever you do, your wig cap needs to fit your head tightly, and preferable have a tight band around the edge.

As for getting your hair underneath the wig, wetting your hair is helpful, as can be gel and hairspray, particularly for hiding stray hairs at the edge of your wig cap.

Try pinning or otherwise fixing your hair in position before putting on the wig cap since this will help prevent the wig from shifting while you wear it. How you put up your hair depends on its length and nature.

Some ideas for longer hair:

Twisting your hair up at the back of your head is quick and easy. Wigs stretch most at the back, to the nape of the neck, so this is ideal.

Wrapping your hair around your head will keep it flatter and is less likely to affect the look of the wig once it’s on. Putting your hair into a couple of braids (or more if necessary) then wrapping them round your head is more secure. French braids are also suitable.

For particularly long hair, pin curls are ideal. Take a small strand of hair and twist it until it starts curling up, coil it against your head and pin it in place. Repeat until all your hair is up. Even if you have extremely long hair, it should still fit under a wig using a method such as that.

Once your hair is up, pull the wig cap on from the back. Pull it right down over your forehead, and then shift it back to your hairline to catch any short strands. Hairspray and gel at your hairline is advisable to catch stray strands.

U shaped pin:

As an optional extra, you can pin your wig on. This will keep it in place, stop it sliding back, and make it a lot easier to wear – especially for heavier, strangely styled wigs. U-shaped pins are very OK ^^.
