Geek Girl Leen Isabel recently celebrated the cherry blossom season in Los Angeles with this special Street Fighter cosplay! Here she is as Ibuki. Here's what she has to say on the experience:

"Hi Geek Girls! This is Leen Isabel bringing you my latest cosplay as Ibuki from Street Fighter. She is such a cutie! I first heard of this character from the Pocket Fighter video game on Playstation. She's a kunoichi (female ninja) who daydreams about boys and finds herself torn between being a great fighter and a normal teenage girl. :) For this shoot, I waited until the cherry blossoms were in bloom in the Los Angeles area and I wasn't disappointed! A traditional Japanese setting compliments her character well. It was great fun to get out and climb trees and relax under the blossoms.

The hardest thing about this costume was Ibuki's gravity defying ponytails. It took me a while to come up with the concept, but my beau thought of using feathers after looking at Chinese Opera costumes. I took a small amount of long black synthetic hair and affixed them to a long feather that I dyed black. The feather acted as a base to keep the hair from coming apart and gave the whole ponytail a realistic bounce without being heavy. Ta-da! Effortless, bouncy hair! I'm ready to go fight!"
