Feng Min from Dead by Daylight

Feng Min is a professional gamer from Dead by Daylight.  After burning out and falling into a string of substance abuse issues (accompanied by parents who never approved of her career), she found herself in the Realm of the Entity and is now focused on winning, no matter the cost.  Finding an exact match for Feng’s outfit would be almost impossible, but by choosing a printed athletic polo and using some matching fabric paint on the white contrast trim of a pair of black shorts, you can evoke the same feel.  If you’re not up for painting, a plain pair of black bike shorts would also suffice.
