Street Fighter IV Juri Cosplay by sonialeong Street Fighter IV Juri Cosplay by sonialeong
Photos very kindly taken by Bento Dan (Dan Hardwick) and Moonshadow (Sergei Lewis).

LOL, totally forgot to upload this on here! I knocked up this cosplay in just 2 weeks in time for the London MCM Expo in May 2010.

Story is, 3 weeks before the Expo, I was round at ~dock's house and he was plaing his brand new copy of Super Street Fighter IV and I was like, OOOOOOoooo! during the intro video when Juri came on.

So! Almost the entire thing is completely handmade - the handkerchief top (no tit tape, it's just made to sit on me properly!), studwork, gloves, sleeves, leggings, chaps, belt, thong... all sewn up and hammered. The only things bought/modded were the cheapo goth rubber spike bracelets, some pink hair bands and the socks which I cut holes in.

My hair - is a mix of my own with 3 additional hair pieces clipped in. I separated out two front curtains, then twisted my hair into a bun and held it in place with two chopsticks. Then I clipped a false blunt fringe in. Then two layered fringes onto my bun, using the chopsticks to hold them in place with the hair bands.

And it was fun doing the poses ^^ I used to do tae-kwondo, so it was fine XD

This is amazing. You look so much like her.

The hair, oh my, the hair. I can't figure out how you did it but it looks amazing.

Thank you! False fringe blended into my real hair, then false layered tufts clipped onto my real hair twisted up into a bun held and shaped by two chopsticks XD

Awesome. Might be looking into the all false fringe look for an up and coming cosplay. Are they quite easy to use?

Yup, just clip in halfway up your head and hide the join with your real hair ^^ Clips are under the hair piece too. This was the same one, just in a lighter colour:

I wish I got to see you at the May MCM ;; It was so confusing because of all the rain and going with so many people each wanting to go somewhere else OTL

The fabric for the trousers look like it must have been hell to work with ;; Amazing <3 I can't believe it only took two weeks oAo

Aw, well I'll be at the October one, but cosplaying as Maya Kumashiro from Occult Academy, my husband will be Fumiaki ^^

The fabric is actually really nice ^^ I want to make a draped summer maxi dress or something from it XD

Really great! It has all the features of cosplay I like, interesting hairstyle, nice shape of clothing (pants in this case), some good details...Good choice. Not only you act like her nicely, but also things I mentioned made it a really respectable costume. With tae-kwondo you could probably try for Chun-Li once (if you like her...cute version of course, not the one with monstrous legs)

Thank you very much! Hehe, I'm not sure about Chun Li because she is done so often XD
Reply
:iconpaladin-of-goddesses:
Well, that is a good reason XD I really didn't know that because in my country mostly never really heard of street fighter franchise...but, now that I think of it, a blue chinese dress and thights are no challenge at all, too easy to make that costume
Nevermind, carry on with what you're doing ^^ I'm sure I'll love your ideas :D

Ah, ok. I guess that chick is just kinda cute then. Sorry I said hot before, that was prolly inappropriate. XD

Teasing aside, that's actually pretty good for something you just threw together. I don't know much for cosplay, but when something's a little too planned out it lacks a little in personality. Like here, you look like someone who just dresses like that.

Wow thats an amazing cosplay! Saw you in this one (only my photo skills are'nt anywhere near this level lol), incredible you were able to do all that in just 2 weeks, seemed to take me centuries to finish my last costume, guess i need more practice

No, it can take ages to work on a costume, this one happened to be quite easy, hence why even though it was a last minute decision, I thought it was feasible (and it was).

When armour or embroidery or complex applique or props start coming it, it WILL take months, understandably!

I really liked the attention to detail on this costume, thats what I generally think makes a good cosplay, when the details are all there :D Any ideas about what cosplay you will do for future cons??

I agree - simple is fine, so long as it's well made and the edges are finished well, and if it really suits the person.

Hehe, yeah - Morag, Chloe and I are planning a Magic Knights Rayearth trio, I'm working on Occult Academy for me and Matt this Oct Expo, then Scheherazade and Suleyman / Trinity Blood for Grand Cosplay Ball, then Granado Espada group for AyaCon next year...
