Mai Shiranui, from The King of Fighters series, wears a skimpy costume. She's a video game character. She can pull it off. But how does a real lady wear Mai's outfit?

Very carefully. With plastic straps. That's pin-up model Sayuki Matsumoto doing her best Mai. When Resident Evil 5 was released in Japan, the curvy Matsumoto played the Xbox 360 version of the game on video site Nico Nico Douga.

After being absent from The King of Fighters XII, Mai Shiranui is returning for arcade title The King of Fighters XIII.
