Femme Ken

Street Fighter

Last Updated: 06-13-2007


My friend Lindze found an awesome picture of Ryu, Akuma and Ken as females (drawn by Fred Perry) while flipping through a comic one day. When she showed it to Cat and I (suggesting that we cosplay as the characters) we immediately agreed! I got in touch with Fred in order to ask his permission to use the designs, and to our surprise he was kind enough to draw us sketches of the characters to use as inspiration *^^*. THANK YOU FRED!!! We all followed his designs as closely as possible.......but opted for a little more chest covering than the original drawings depicted ^_-. I'm really excited about how all these costumes came out! In the pictures below Lindze is cosplaying as femme Ryu and Cat is femme Akuma.

Gi: I purchased the gi from karate-mart.com and used RIT dye to dye it red. I then cut jagged edges on the sleeves and pant legs to imitate Ken's gi. Finally, I altered the gi top to fit snugly around me.

WIG: Bought at a wig shop in Athens, GA.

BELT: I found a scrap of black material and created the belt without a pattern.

CHEST WRAP: I used the same type of material that the belt is made of to create this. It was also made without a pattern.

SPARRING GLOVES: Made with foam and hot glue covered by the aforementioned black material. (Again with no pattern.)
