Alpha Chun Li ready to FIGHT 👊👊👊 Quick n easy costume done!! I just need to make the bracers but I don't plan on wearing this costume anytime soon so I'll do those later LOL PROCESS BELOW!!
👉 I almost always pattern things out myself bc I don't know how to read commercial patterns LOL I'M DUMB OK and I'm small so patterns never fit me even when I get the smallest size!! SO I JUST NEED TO DIY!!
👉 I made a mockup! I rarely make mockups bc I'm LAZY but for this I didn't have much fabric to work with so I didn't wanna fuck it up LOL with some minor adjustments everything went well! Sewing non-stretch fabric is a little hard for me bc you need to be really precise but that's another thing the mockup was helpful with!
👉 Basic bodysuit pattern, nothing new. Link to the tutorial I use is on my twitter thread, to add the stripes I just cut out a side seam and sewed in strips of yellow spandex
👉 I made my own bias tape for this project! It was my first time and it was pretty painless. I wanted to make my own bias tape bc I wanted to match the edging of the shirt to the same fabric of the designs in the front.
👉 Used Heat N Bond to stick down the patterns onto the front of the shirt then satin stitched the edges just in case. Then I attached the lining and the bias tape to seal it all up! EASY!!! #streetfighter #streetfightercosplay #chunli #chunlicosplay #alphachunli
