Today cosplayer Choni brings us all the beauty of Street Fighter 5’s Laura without the soul-deflating V-Trigger mix ups.
She dons the Brazilian beauty’s classic green jiu-jitsu gi (and looks stunning while doing so) but also slips into the specialized costume designed by the top Laura player on the planet, Derek “iDom” Ruffin, following his Capcom Cup 2019 win.
We kick things off with a few standard shots as Choni brings Laura to life. Her costume is spot on and even includes the details such as the multi-colored bracelets that show just how experienced the character is when it comes to Brazilian jiu-jitsu.
The cute chibi doodle of Laura from the banner and below boba photo is the work of Mishacharms, by the way. If you’d like to see more like it, and even order her artwork on stickers, key chains, and more, you can do so over at her shop.
Be sure to use the arrows in the embed below to cycle through and see the multiple photos of the costume as it was being created. We always appreciate when a cosplayer opts to put in the time to actually create their costumes, (as opposed to simply purchasing them in already completed form) especially when they’re this good.
All that stitching and dying to get everything just perfect really shows in the final product, though we’re admittedly a little intimidated to think just how long this all might have taken.
Below are the shots of iDom’s aforementioned Champion’s Choice costume. Choni took this one to Evo and even got some shots with two of the head Street Fighter developers.
The final photos are a bit more professionally produced than most of the others as evidenced by the lighting and backgrounds. Check them all out and then let us know in the comments what you thought of Choni’s awesome work, and be sure to follow her on Instagram for plenty more.
We actually got to meet and take some quick video footage of Choni at Evo this year as she donned her Street Fighter 6 Kimberly cosplay. You can see her around the 1:30 mark in the compilation video below:
