Girl gamers who play fighting games? Help me out!

So, I absolutely adore fighting games and Street Fighter is my favorite by far. I've had these ideas for Street Fighter bathing suits similar to the outfits of Rose and C. Viper specifically, but I've got some other ideas for other characters as well. They'd be entirely functional as bathing suits and not necessarily cosplay. Would anyone be interested in that? I don't have the final design details ironed out yet, just trying to scope out any general interest.

I'll say your idea sounds cool. Unfortunately I can't help you out there

It definitely sounds like a neat idea. Unfortunately I don't go swimming or wear swimwear any more.

You're aiming at a very narrow market--ladies who play fighting games AND swim AND who want to spend extra money to emulate fighting game characters while they swim.

A cool idea, but I'm personally not in the overlapping part of the Venn diagram there. Make one for yourself or a friend, use that to drum up interest?

That's why I'm asking, I know I can't mass produce something like this, but I'd like to make a few if anyone would even be interested. I'm making one for myself, but of course I'm down here in Florida, so it's common to go swimming every day :P We shall see!

I have seen lots of fandom-themed clothing on sites like Etsy (i.e. aprons, skirts, etc.) so I wouldn't be surprised if there was a market for your swimsuits. However, I don't think it'd be a super big market.
