Who doesn’t get all nostalgic remembering the afternoons (that turned into late nights) spent playing Street Fighter II at home until your thumbs hurt? Recently we came across a fantastic group of cosplayers that almost made us forget that 1994 Jean-Claude Van Damme vehicle and remember what made Street Fighter such a great game with so many iconic characters, such as Chun-Li, Guile and Vega.

Click below to see 15 of the best Street Fighter cosplayers out there as well as some very creative gender-swaps from the classic video game!

These cosplayers are among some of the dedicated we’ve seen (and that also care a little more about detail) and their hard work is unmistakable as they breathe life into these Street Fighter legends. Take a look at these 15 cosplayers below and maybe put on someclassic video game music to heighten the experience.
