Fat Bottomed Birdies

If, like me, you haven’t yet been paying attention to Street Fighter V you won’t have seen this excellent costume for personal favourite Birdie (from the Alpha series). Essentially a punk/new-wave inflected character originating in the first Street Fighter game I really love the re-imagining of his influences as classic Queen.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that all DLC costumery reduces eventually to massively over-embellished nonsense or seifuku, so it’s really cool to see a look which works with and against the character themselves. Love that belly, haha!

Click here if you want to see the outfit in (brief) action. That DLC showcase also features Ryu rocking a Borg-universe Riker beard. Nice!

Come to ogre battle!

    Very cool, having an xbox-one I’m not going to get to play this, shame.
