Nelly Laufeyson looks ready to throw down in a cosplay as Tekken’s Lili in her super short skirt

Emilie De Rochefort (or “Lili” for short) is a popular character within the Tekken series. She made her debut appearance in Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection as a newcomer along with Sergei Dragunov.

Due to the fighter’s popularity, it would seem that Nelly Laufeyson, a fashion model and actress, has elected to cosplay as Lili. A number of excellent shots of her Lili cosplay can be located on Laufeyson’s Instagram page.

What’s interesting about Lili is that she is said to be the sole daughter of Mr. De Rochefort, a wealthy oil industrialist. However, Lili appears to believe that she actually has an older sister in a certain continuity, although this seems unlikely.

In Eliza’s Tekken 7 ending, Eliza is confronted by Lili who is claiming to be her younger sister. Eliza attempts to explain what this isn’t very likely due to the fact that Eliza is over 1,000 years old, but is comically unable to as a result of her own narcolepsy.

As for Lili, she is actually the second youngest character that’s playable in the Tekken series so far. Since she’s only 16 years old, she’s only a high school student.

Despite this, it would appear that Lili is quite the skilled fighter. It should be noted that Lili has never received any formal combat training as her father appears abhors violence.

While Lili’s fighting style is mostly self-taught, it appears to see quite a bit of influence from gymnastics and ballet. This certainly explains the twirls and flips in which Lili is known for attacking with.

Oddly though, Sebastian, De Rochefort family butler, was shown to utilize a moveset that was exactly the same as Lili’s in Tekken Tag Tournament 2. Of course, it should be noted that Tekken Tag Tournament 2 features events that are noncanonical to the overall story of Tekken, and Sebastian has never been playable in an official mainline Tekken game.

Nelly Laufeyson portrays Lili as she appeared in Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection and Tekken 6. It’s worth noting that Lili in Tekken 7 has her legs covered by stockings.

As such, Laufeyson can be seen in a variety of fighting stances while giving long, blonde hair, a very short skirt, high heel boots, gloves, and even Lili’s brooch. There’s certainly an elegant way in which Laufeyson is adopting these stances.
