Believe it or not, they actually did cut a few Chun costumes
Street Fighter 5 fans are excitedly looking forward to the reveal of the five new characters and three new stages that were announced earlier this year, but that’s not all the new content coming down the pike.
Lest we forget that a few talented fans will be designing additional character costumes, Capcom has posted on the official Street Fighter Twitter some unused designs for Chun-Li’s Alpha costume in SF5.
All of these feature the traditional blue and yellow (Capcom colors) that Chun sported during her days in the Alpha series, but have quite a few differences when it comes to hairstyles, accessories, and style of clothing.
Perhaps the most unique of the bunch is the fourth image, which gives Chun a coat that she wears just on her shoulders. We imagine she’d have a pretty hard time keeping that on while in the midst of a heated battle, but that doesn’t mean it looks bad.
The contest will run from August 17, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. PDT and ends on August 31, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. PDT. You’ll want to head over to the costume contest page for details on formatting and where to send submissions.
Click the thumbnail below to see all 12 alternate looks for Chun and be sure to share your personal favorites in the comments once you’ve had a chance to look them over. I have a particular affinity for number 10, though numbers 11 and 8 aren’t half bad either.
