Well I saw a KoF and GGXX thread, so I thought I'd start up a thread for general SF cosplay discussion.

Well to start things off, I plan on doing Yun from Street Fighter III for Katsucon in February, and I need a few reference pictures. Since fightersgeneration.com has been down for quite a few months I can't use that, can anybody point me in the direction of anymore? Note that I already got some artwork done by falcoon, so no need to give me a link there.

Here are some links to official artwork from the Street Fighter III series:
Yun New Generation (http://www.kawaiidream.net/details.php?image_id=10843)
Yun 2nd Impact (http://www.kawaiidream.net/details.php?image_id=10813)
Yun 3rd Strike 1 (http://www.kawaiidream.net/details.php?image_id=10814)
Yun 3rd Strike 2 (http://www.kawaiidream.net/details.php?image_id=10812)

They're all from http://www.kawaiidream.net, a great resource for game artwork... They have (among other things) extensive galleries with SF, KOF, AOF, Samurai Spirits and Fatal Fury artworks. Highly recommended.

I wanna be Chun-Li someday. n.n; Street Fighter 2 (forget which version) was my first fighting game. I have some other Capcom stuff planned first though.

Ummm as for Yun. I have a big 1243x3280 size picture of Yun from CVS2... ^^; but it's over a meg in size because of the high quality, so I'm gonna upload a smaller one. If you want the bigger one, I can send it over AIM or something.

No worries, the one you posted I'll do just fine, and thanks for the other pictures. Now I can finally get all my plans together for the outfit.

Well, so far I've done Q and Yun from 3rd:strike at con. I did Dan and Cody for a couple halloweens. I'm still working on a Remy costume for my friend. The jacket is a bastard to make.


Me and my friends want to do Gill as a joke one of these days but none of us have the balls to strip down into a man thong and paint ourselves :D

From the looks of it, the logo on Yun's cap seems to be of a skateboard. Couldn't find a close-up of that, though. I couldn't find a clearer shot of his skateboard's artwork either. Will still keep searching.

I'm not gonna worry about the logo for the. That's extra work I don't wanna deal with, but thanks for more pics.

Dunno, maybe around AX...if I can be there, you have to make sure your Alty is up to par cause I'm almost done with a Keiya crossplay and represent the Eretzvaju

Mikei
11-15-2004, 10:42 PM
hehe. Oh man i gott find a better wig for my Alty. But sure i'll bring it outta retirement. I'll even get my friend bakcin to the Kakurine dress. :bigtu:

Let's keep this on topic with Street Fighter cosplay, guys. Keep the personal discussion to IMs and PMs. :P

Mikei
11-16-2004, 01:54 AM
Aye aye Capn!

Im trying to get a 3rd strike group together for next AX. I'm going to do Q since there already are going to be a bunch of Yuns. Yea, but so far only a Q and Remy. Any takers?

Michi
11-16-2004, 02:06 AM
My boyfriend might be doing a 3rd Strike cosplay... If he does, maybe he'll bring it to AX. ^^ Won't know til like May though. :P

Could anyone recommend a good online fabric store where I could order some white and blue satin and black or dark grey cotton?

Michi
11-16-2004, 11:49 PM
Isn't that kinda general? I'd make a new post for a question like that... It doesn't really have to do with SF. ^^; I hope the satin isn't for Yun, though.. ^^;;;

Purple Flames
11-17-2004, 12:06 AM
Good point, but yeah I was gonna go with either a nice-quality satin or silk for Yun's shirt.

Is there anything else I might be able to use?

Michi
11-17-2004, 12:15 AM
I've never thought of Yun's outfit as being shiny/silky... I've seen it done best out of matte, crisp fabrics.

Mikei
11-17-2004, 12:35 AM
Well' I made Yun's Pants out of a cotton blend the same as like slacks. The shirt i would suggest something thicker than silk. Just only because if you are going to make the shirt ties things it will be hard to keep em on.

-has had problems sewing silk-

11-17-2004, 08:59 AM
use the cotton included with some rubber materia would be better, isn't it?

Mikei
11-17-2004, 06:23 PM
What? -confused-

safer sephiroth
11-18-2004, 03:37 AM
meaning is rubber cotton,but not much

Michi
11-18-2004, 09:04 PM
Rubber? For pants? O_O;

cactusmomma
11-18-2004, 11:09 PM
I've always thought of Yun in a comfy cotton/muslin o.O Because of all the skateboarding that he does...

I've had my green Sakura since Ushicon2. Course I doubt I'll wear it again for this coming Ushicon since the collar is needing to be re-sewn as well as the gloves need to be re-made since I lost one. Course if I end up finding different pants for my Ash Crimson costume maybe I could use the pants I've got for Remy.

Are you talking about Sakura Kasugano? I've been trying to find people who have cosplayed as her because I'd like to know how others made their costumes. I'd like to know how you made the wrist guards.. if this is the right Sakura. :)

Michi
11-21-2004, 06:52 PM
XD There's no other Sakura in Street Fighter, so yes. Haha. ^^;

My friends and I have talked on and off about a Street Fighter III cosplay group at Katsucon for the past...oh...3 years or so. And it never happens. ^_^; We're lame. But then my fiance had this idea that it would be cool to be characters true to just STIII...like pretty much everyone except Ryu, Chun-li, etc. No "regulars." In which case I'd finally remake him a Remy costume, and be Ibuki myself. That idea always seemed like a good one but still we end up doing a million other things instead.

Cool! Hey if you got that idea off the ground maybe I could try to get a photoshoot together.

I made the ones for my daughter out of cotton..made them into sort of...hand top mittens I guess..best way to describe them is 'a little pouch with the end sewn up'...the picture of her is here..I suppose you can sort of see them.. http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=189479 Anyways, I used quilt binding to make little ties on them..which she promptly figured out how to pull off XD Don't think that would help an older person much though @_@

LOL. Thanks anyway. That is such a cute picture and you have a very beautiful daughter. :cool:

Has anyone heard of Rival Schools? Sakura is one of the playable characters and I'm doing my first cosplay in a Rival Schools group. I've made a post about it but no one seems to have a clue what I'm talking about. T_T

I'd like to meet a Ryu at Comic-Con.. since that's supposed to be Sakura's idol. I know too much about her, since I want to be able to assume the persona, as my English teacher would put it.

I'm such a weirdo. O_O... -_-U

There's been a good amount of Rival Schools cosplay over the years, but not in as large numbers as Street Fighter or King of Fighters. It seemed to be more popular about two years ago. Heh, being Sakura it makes you easy to switch over to any SF or RS/Project Justice group since she made that cameo in Rival Schools. XD I was thinking of doing Kyoko or something but I dunno if I'd ever get around to it.

Something like these (http://www.pmakarate.com/sale_fist_guards.JPG)?
…or maybe like this (http://www.bouncewell.com/mini-trampoline-images/handweights2.gif)?

The latter "gloves" are weights (at the knuckles or probably at the back of the palm, I think). So, you can knock somebody down even if you just swung your arms about…or break a window. Heh.

Or maybe you can fashion your own, as what it seems here (http://japan.syste.ms/trip7/c710.html).

Actually I'm not sure where I put the instructions that I printed out. If I find them I'll post them.

11-22-2004, 08:58 PM
Heh.. Thanks everyone. :thumbsup:

I'm thinking about changing my costume though. I haven't started on it, which is good if I'm going to change my mind. It's just that if it's cold on the day I go to Comic-Con, I don't want to be wearing a skirt. I know it's unlikely because it'll be in the middle of July, but just in case. I remember once how it rained for about two weeks after having 100+ days without rain..

I might just go as Akira from RS and bring a jacket that looks like Daigo's..

I checked out you photo database. Really good work so far.I think you would look really good as Ibuki. Keep up the good work. Maybe I'll get over to Otakon one of these years get a group photo. :bigtu:

I've never gone to a convention but when I eventually do I plan on being Blanka. He was always my favorite character and I know I can pull it off. I might have to put on a couple pounds, but it'll be fun to lope around dressed like that. Oh yeah, I've also got the crouching backflip down pat.

Sakura's wrist guards are very similar to Ryu's. When I cosplay Ryu I use red hand wraps, that boxers use. You can buy them in any sporting goods store.

In the 'akira01" picture, Akira disguises herself as a boy in order to find her missing older brother Daigo. It's just a little obvious that she's a female.

I've done Guy from Street Fighter Alpha. Pic is in my photo gallery. If I was over 6ft and crazy enough to shave my head I'd do Sagat. **l**

Purple Flames
12-12-2004, 12:18 AM
Yeah that would be cool. I saw a Sagat at Otakon 2003. He was pretty good over all, but he didn't have the height for it. Hell even I was taller than him. Well, I'm 6'3", so I'm taller than most people =P

Oh, and about my Yun cosplay, it's being taken care of as we speak. I'll post some pics once it's completed, whcih might take awhile.

Michi
12-12-2004, 12:24 AM
If any guy is capable of pulling off an accurate Sagat, he should be suggested to cosplay Nappa from Dragon Ball Z as well. >_> I just realized how similar they are -- bald, buff, super large/tall guys. o_____o

well where the hell have I been?

I plan on going for Yang...though i'm STILL looking for commissions and kinda having doubts now. it's not a hard costume but Katsucon is a month away and you kinda get the worry feeling...

but a 3rd Strike only photoshoot? we need!

Romann
01-10-2005, 07:18 PM
If there is a 3rd strike photo shoot, there would be a reason to work on my Elena costume. I have all the supplies, but I am too lazy...

I am, however, almost done with my Pullum (SF-EX) costume ^^ Not enough Pullum cosplay out there.

cody is a really cool character,

my friend did a urien costume,it looks good but he isnt gonna wear it to conventions for obvious reasons lol

i might do ryu if i can find a new karate uniform to modify, my oldone doesntfit anymore, (i just dont wanna walk around barefoot) or akuma since i have a big bead neckalce and i like akuma more than ryu

and has anyone done rose? she's pretty cool, itd e interesting to see
