Mortal Kombat Cosplay: Skarlet (Illyne) Cosplay 11 NOV 2012

French cosplayer Illyne is better known for her numerous outings dressed up as Lara Croft through all the various game incarnations, but here she swaps out her pistols for some far sharper – and bloodier!

From the 2011 Mortal Kombat reboot courtesy of NetherRealm Studios, comes… Skarlet!

Skarlet is an intense warrior created by Shao Kahn using sorcery and the blood of countless warriors, and is only ever released as a last resort. Her sole purpose is to discover Quan Chi’s true reason for attendance at the Mortal Kombat tournament.

Skarlet originated as a rumored character in Mortal Kombat II. During the game when choosing Kitana and Mileena, the palette swap would turn to red instead of blue (Kitana) or purple (Mileena) and so create an unnamed red female ninja. Netherrealm Studios confirmed that the name of the character had been decided to be Skarlet, and in March 2011 she was announced as one of Mortal Kombat’s first two downloadable characters.

She uses kodachi swords and kunai knives.
