Series Name : Street Fighter 3rd Stirke
Comments : I played the video game since I was only 15 years old. I was always referred as Ryu because I played the character a lot, and my ethnicity is mixed, Brown with asian and White heritage. I have practiced the martial arts for over 3 years of my life and just recently got into cosplay. I looked at all the current Ryu cosplayers, and one thing I saw is that the people did not know how to tie martial arts belts, and did not perform the moves, so I wanted to stay true to the character as much as possible.
