After playing Street Fighter 4 C. Viper's character really grew on me. Other then her outta this world hair style or sexy business look, the character had a real persona about her.
The hardest thing about this costume was obviously the wig styling. This was the first major wig project I did on my own. The wig is an Ivy in henna red from Cosworx. It also has 3 long henna red extensions weaved into it. The roll on top is actually removable. It is woven into the hair by french braiding it down into the ponytail.
The blazer I bought and tore out the lining and replaced it with gold taffetta lining. The dress pants I had as well as the belt with buckle. The boots I had on hand already. The gloves were purchased leather gloves. I added 3D paint and silver spots onto them. The glasses were yellow saftey glass replacments. I added a piece of craftfoam in the center of them and they flash tape to my face. The earrings I made from silver crosses.
The top I made from cotton, it is lined. The purple tie was left over purple satin I had. I added purple buttons to match the tie.
