Chun-Li Classic Qipao Street Fighter Statue

Chun-Li Classic Qipao Street Fighter Statue Sideshow and Pop Culture Shock Collectibles are proud to present the third piece in the acclaimed line of 1:3 Street Fighter Collectibles. The Chun Li 1:3 Statue stands an impressive 30″ tall and features superb detailing and meticulously crafted fabric tailoring. Following the tradition of the previous 1:3 Street Fighter Collectibles, Chun Li was personally sculpted by Creative Director, Jerry Macaluso, who spent months sculpting and resculpting until he captured her essence. Says Macaluso, “The greatest challenge with Chun Li is capturing this amazing balance of strength and femininity that Capcom’s designers have given her since the beginning. As Street Fighter fans know, she is the ‘Strongest Woman in the World,’ which means she needs muscle, yet she also has to be, well…hot! So the sculpture itself went through many revisions over 12 months of development while I tried to find that perfect balance.’ In addition to the challenge of the sculpture, this collectible would be the most demanding and detailed tailoring project the PCS Team has tackled to date. “We began with Chun Li’s most recognizable look, Classic Qipao, which is the blue outfit she’s worn since Street Fighter II,” continues Macaluso. “Re-creating that dress was no small feat, but we are lucky to have some of the most talented costumers in the business working with us for months, and it really shows in the amazing details on this piece, such as the embroidery.” Several iterations of the qipao were produced, trying a number of different techniques and materials before finding the right combination to make Chun Li look as if she had just stepped right out of the game. This collectible comes with a signed certificate of authenticity.
