Awesome and adorable all at once. I didn't know people could hoop with their hair!

A friend of mine got into hooping a few years ago. Whole different vibe.

That was delightful. Marawa the Amazing is aptly named.

DaddyNewt, one of these days I'm going to take a fire hooping class. A friend just did it for the first time and she said it was a lot of fun. LED hoops are super-fun too.

I don't remember anyone from Street Fighter smiling so much.

The 'win' dance is the best dance of all dances danced.

CHARMING.

I love how she manages to ham it up without slipping into eye-roll inducing corniness.

More of a Mortal Kombat character than a Street Fighter character. She's basically Kitana.

Or Tira from Soulcalibur.

Trying to place those backgrounds. I'm pretty sure one was from Last Blade.

Well, that was utterly charming!

Yah, Tria from SoulCalibur was the first thing I thought of.

You survived for 1 days

Sgt Burden failed his men and committed suicide

You had 51 bullets, 93 rations of food
and 1 meds left
Radio reparation: 0 of 50

THANK YOU FOR PLAYING
