Tina Armstrong. Baby. by Rose0fMay Tina Armstrong. Baby. by Rose0fMay
Ok, let's get serious, nobody is reading this part, your eyes are elsewhere. Do people even still play this game? Anyway, I'm trained in various martial arts (shuri ryu, jujitsu, and wrestling primarily) and spent two years competing. I have three state titles. So Tina's a good match for me as far as characters go :)

I chose to make the bra ultra glitzy because Tina's the resident wrestler and we all know how glam wrestlers make their costumes. It seemed appropriate.

This costume is surprisingly (and appropriately?) durable for legitimate street fights and tussles. How I learned this is not important.

I looked at the text first, but fair disclosure I didn't finish before my eyes went back to the pic.

You are a very beautiful woman.

Sorry, I noticed the cosplay costume second after that.

The costume is seriously awesome.

I was just distracted by the woman wearing it in the first instance.  :)

Actually, I just started playing DOA 5 today. It's alright, I think. I still prefer Street Fighter and Soul Calibur, but I've definitely played worse games this year. Anyway, Tina has quickly become my favorite character to use and you look fantastic. :)

I haven't played it yet...too many games on my backlogged list! It took me half a minute to pay attention to Tina when I first started playing the old games, but once she had my attention, she kept it above all the others. I love her.

Any beautiful woman that throws people around with wrestling moves is okay in my book.

To be honest, I actually read this, without spending too much time ogling - I mean admiring the picture. This is nice work and I actually live in a rural area where FFA is a pretty big deal so there were quite a handful of cowgirls. Unfortunately I never saw too many since I went to a continuation high school. I've read some of the comments and they do have a point of not too many Tina cosplayers. I've only played DOA2, the volleyball game and even saw the DOA film (I couldn't finish it - thank goodness). You do a more convincing job of Tina than Jaime Pressly!

I can't resist cowgirls either, I've cosplayed three of them now. Thanks for the fave, I find it particularly awesome when those who aren't really fans of a particular character/game still find it impressive enough to give it a nod of appreciation <3

Shuri Ryu? That sounds interesting... I have green belt in Jujitsu myself. It's a fun martial art! Still have problems with the names though...
The costume you made is great, material for a real fight, or even a movie! It does not look ridiculous but sexy and dangerous.
I would like to know how you figured out it's dutability....

Rose0fMay Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2011
I find that the names get the most confusing when you go to different schools that use another country's terminology, or worse yet, one that uses terms from EVERY style so that it's a guessing game as to what they're going to call something. Identical moves exist in multiple styles of fighting, but there's like 5-8 names for it. I've felt really stupid walking into classes that I felt like I knew nothing at first, and then I watched other students do it, and was like "Oh THAT, yeah, I learned that." :)

Aw, wow, thanks for the kind words! I originally made this costume back in 2007 and only wore it for a photoshoot...I definitely didn't have the body for it back then, and I knew it at the time and was really self-conscious. But I worked hard and sweat off the extra pounds, and now we have what's in this photo...anyone can do it, they just have to work for it!

Tine gets so few attention compared to Kasumi, Ayane and Hitomi, great to see a girl that can kick some serious ass irl playing as her.

well, way to many hardcore Dead or Alive fans, see her as an stereotypical american blonde bimbo, who in my opinion she isn't. She's waaay smarter than DOA fans think.

Ha! Well, you know, a chick in a bra is still a chick in a bra, regardless of how much you try to downplay the overt cleavage :P Also, when choosing costumes, I try to go for characters body/face types that I could feasibly resemble IRL. Even better if I can relate to their personalities and interests. So, that doesn't usually land me the popular characters, but it definitely lands me characters well suited for me. Glad you enjoy, thank you!
