I am a Ryu cosplayer who wants to upgrade his costume.

I cosplay as Ryu from Street Fighter and I am thinking of taking my Ryu cosplay to the next level. Originally, I bought a gi with long sleeves and I would wear the long sleeves. Now I want to cut the sleeves so I can make my costume look more like Ryu. However, I will be wearing a t-shirt underneath and I don't know if it would look good if my t-shirt sleeves were to be shown in my cosplay.

What should I do? Should I cut the sleeves partway or should I cut them off entirely even if my t-shirt sleeves will be shown?

.. Well is there any particular reason you're wearing a t-shirt under the gi? Could you wear a tanktop/sleeveless shirt instead?

I guess I could try that option. The shirt I am wearing is a Street Fighter shirt so I thought it would be cool to put some more Street Fighter into my costume.

It might look better if you use a flesh colored tank top. I think people would still recognize you as Ryu.

If you're dead-set on the t-shirt you could cut off the sleeves or roll them up and use safety pins to keep it up.

Also, I don't want to go bare-chested, so that's why I want to wear a top.
