Another classic game heroine is the kickass Chun-Li. Since the first days of Street Fighter, Chun-Li has shown that the boys won’t be on top forever. She’s a fierce fighter who has inspired cosplayers for decades. And since Street Fighter continues to be a focal point of the esports world, Chun-Li is going to reign supreme.

Chun-Li is one of the most well known and recognizable characters from Street Fighter. With her iconic hairbuns and traditional Chinese dress, Chun-Li is famous for her high kicks and physical combat skills. Chun-Li’s qipao comes from Chinese culture, imported from Manchuria and popular among girls in the early 20th century. The costume has been altered to provide more mobility, establishing a look that has become iconic in the cosplay world.
