Happy Bithday Chun Li!! ^^

Today is the super awesome Chun Li's birthday!! As gamers will know, Chun Li made her debut in Street Fighter II and was the first female fighter introduced by Capcom into that series.  She's super strong, quick and has some awesome moves! She's definitely one of my favourite characters in the Street Fighter series!

But did you know, Chun Li also has a Kawaii side?? Capcom and Sanrio have collaborated on some super Kawaii clothing, accessories and more!

Here's my Street Fighter x Sanrio items:

The bag is made by Loungefly and has the classic Kitty head silhouette and the iconic bow!

I wore the backpack around Tokyo in 2014 and got lots of comments from Japanese people about how cute it is! <3

Here's a close-up of the fabric design:

It features lots of Sanrio characters cosplaying as Street Fighter characters! Hello Kitty is, of course, Chun Li, but there are lots of others! My Melody is dressed as Cammy, Bad Badtz Maru is cosplaying Ryu, Kuromi is having fun as M Bison, Pom Pom Purin looks tough as Zangief, Tuxedo Sam is the sumo wrestler E.Honda, Hangyodon is Guile (including the famous hair!), Pochacco is dressed as Ken, Keroppi is cosplaying Blanka and Monkichi is Dhalsim from India! They all look so Kawaii!  The design is really colourful too, which means it can be worn with lots of different outfits (making it very useful on holiday!)

I also have a Kawaii t-shirt featuring Chun Li (Kitty) and Ryu (Bad Badtz Maru)!

Who will win?! (I bet on Chun Li!! ^^)

But it's not just in collaborations that Chun Li shows her Kawaii side! In the games Pocket Fighter and Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo you can play as a chibi Chun Li!

These games are super Kawaii and lots of fun! Pocket Fighter is a 2D fighting game, with lots of crazy added features and super-detailed backgrounds (with lots of quirky cameos from characters!)

As you can see, Chun Li changes her costume sometimes when attacking! Did you spot her as a Cheerleader, a Golfer or as Jill from Resident Evil?!

Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo is a colour-matching puzzle game! It's soooo addictive!

Here's a video of Chun Li vs Felicia:

She's strong, tough, clever and Kawaii - Happy Birthday Chun Li!! <3

Catch you later Kawaiisters!! ^^
