Welcome to the Solaris Blog! ヾ(῀ʚ̴̶̷́ .̫ ʚ̴̶̷̥̀ ῀)ﾉ”
Today’s Early Bird special is Karin from Street Fighter, transformed into a Bishoujo figure!
She’s posed looking over her shoulder with her mouth wide open for one of her signature laughs. Ohohohoho! (˃̴̀ᄇॢ˂̴́ ∗)
Check out her original illustration by Shunya Yamashita below.
She’s dressed in her uniform from Street Fighter Alpha 3 - her red and blue seifuku uniform is quite a match to that of her frenemy Sakura! (ง •̀_•́)ง
While you can easily see her black shorts peeking out from her skirt, you can also see the black undershirt she wears from a different angle. (。･o･｡)
The windswept look of her outfit is captured perfectly as her skirt sways to the side and her golden locks sweep out from behind. ꉂꉂ꒰•̤▿•̤*ૢ꒱
The detailing of her hair is definitely something to check out! Her trademark tight ringlets are captured fluttering behind her, but there is such a sense of body with their movement. The painting of her braid also adds a layer of depth and realism, making her hair look so flawless! ꒰･‿･๑꒱
Up close, you can see her two forelocks popping from her immaculately groomed golden locks, adding just another dimension of body to her hairstyle. Her eyes are equally warm and bright, with her long eyelashes softening the sharpness of her stare. (๑´• .̫ •ू`๑)
The sculpting of her open mouth is really amazing as well. You can see the hollowness of her mouth, which only adds to the realness of Karin’s appearance. It’s really incredible! (╯•﹏•╰)
Don’t forget to pre-order Sakura as well - she’s the perfect opponent to Karin and releasing soon as a Bishoujo. Read our blog post about Sakura’s figure here!

“With quite the snobbish look, Karin from the popular video game series Street Fighter brings her beauty and signature laugh to Kotobukiya’s Bishoujo lineup! Her image is recreated perfectly, from her tightly-rolled curls to the sophistication of her stance (right down to the fingertips). Her physique is soft, but has muscular definition to make sure you don’t forget what a formidable opponent she is. You can almost sense her about to attack as she finishes up her condescending chuckle. Add her and Sakura to your collection and recreate their rivalry in your home!”
