Super Classic Costume Pack

Took some quick snaps of the costumes last nigh. The two highlights are Blanka and Fei Long. Does anyone know what Dhalsim's outfit is supposed to pay tribute to? Right now I'm not feeling it too much.

The Fei Long outfit is just ridiculously awesome. It's the Bruce Lee "Kato" outfit from Green Hornet. You always see people use the yellow jumpsuit to pay homage so this is a nice alternate.

No love for Guile? I think it looks pretty cool, not to mention more appropriate than his cosplay outfit from SF4 (his and Zangief's were definitely among my least favourites, based on concept alone). I really like Dhalsim's too, I have no idea if it's meant to reference anything specific, I just like the way it looks, and how it's actually quite different from his original costume (unlike his SF4 alternate).

Blanka's is my least favourite in this pack. The concept for his and Dan's is pretty funny I suppose; I certainly don't mind it, but I'm having a bit of a hard time getting over the bizarre look of Blanka's hair. Not a huge fan of Fei Long's either although I strongly agree that it's an infinitely better choice than the extremely tired and overused Game of Death jumpsuit. It's a perfectly suitable concept, so I guess I'm not really unhappy with it... maybe it's just that I don't care so much about it anyway, since I already love his SF4 alternate.

Would it be too much to ask for a picture of Gen? I think his new costume seemed pretty promising, but I've yet to actually see a good full body shot of it.

It's a pretty basic military outfit, but I can see how Guile fans might dig it. I think if it had some type of headgear like night vision goggles or even shooting range glasses then it would do a little more for me.

Ah good point about Gen, was trying to remember who the fifth character was without looking it up. Will get a pic up soon.

I'm getting an alladin vibe from dhalsim, however its not really so weird, the outfit is supposed to look like what a high class indian would wear in the 19th or 18th century, i'm not sure if its capcom trying to be funny or unintentionally racist, looking at their track record though its probably the latter, its still quite unique.

Oh yeah on that note, check the south east asia level, it does look similiar to the elephant riders outfit there.

@fizzil I'll check out that level later today.
