Yes the position is awkward , but that is exactly what she does.
And you pulled it off with perfection - It almost looks animated
Keep it up literally
My eyes are amazed at the high detail of your cosplay, Amazing work!
My hip however, is cringing at the mere Thought of doing the kick. *^v^*
Anyway, getting serious for a moment. I believe I’ve already commented on your costume in the past (not sure which photo), but I think it needs to be said again… You are a gold standard of impersonating Chun-Li that everyone should strive towards.
Doubt that’s an easy thing to accomplish given how popular she has become and the numerous people who have tried to imitate her.
The detailing on the costume, from the spiked bracelets to the modified blue qípáo is nothing short of superb, and obviously, the pose of performing her signature high kick is just about perfect in how natural you make it look.
(Next time I want to see you do that spinning upside-down helicopter kick, okay? )
With all that said, well done on such a fantastic job. Good luck with the rest of your costumes and especially for the new year.
