My, Chun-Li, You Look Different

This isn't the Chun-Li I remember! But it doesn't matter much because look how awesome that animation is. I can watch her loop around for that hit too many times than is normal. » 4/30/12 5:45pm 4/30/12 5:45pm

When You Devote Yourself to Chun-Li

Music has its Elvis impersonators, but video games? Video games have cosplayers, but there's a difference in the nuance. "Cosplay" implies an element of play—as though you are going from outfit to outfit. Not this lady.
