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.

Mortal Kombat Cosplay: Jade (Kristen Hughey) Cosplay 14 AUG 2013

American cosplayer Kristen Hughey goes green and tackles one of the most sexy characters to ever adorn a fighting game franchise – bringing to life none other than the deadly temptress with a staff, Jade!

Starting out life as an unplayable secret character in Mortal Kombat II, Jade has since moved on to become a popular character in her own right.

In Mortal Kombat, the 2011 reboot of the series, Jade is a member of the Edenian noble family that served Shao Kahn once he conquered their realm. Given to Shao Kahn when she was still just a child, she has undergone years of rigorous training and service as an assassin for Shao Kahn, earning a reputation as an agile and stealthy warrior, and eventually awarded the position of a bodyguard to Princess Kitana.

Which is probably a good thing seeing as she is also noted to be one of most powerful characters in the series gameplay-wise.

Mortal Kombat Cosplay Quickie: Kitana (Unidentified) Cosplay 22 JAN 2013

Having appeared in basically every form Mortal Kombat-related media, Kitana is by far one of the most popular characters in the franchise, and has gained critical acclaim as one of the most attractive women of video games in general.

For this particular cosplay photo, an unidentified but rather sexy cosplayer has deemed it necessary to pick up Lady Kitana’s deadly war fans and thus bring the dangerous beauty over to our realm!

Kitana is a recurring player and a one-time boss character from the Mortal Kombat fighting game series. One of the lead characters of the Mortal Kombat saga, Kitana is the princess of the other-dimensional realm of Edenia and the daughter of Queen Sindel.

As a member of the Edenian race, Kitana is over 10,000 years old, although she appears to be a young woman. Throughout the years, she has risen to great importance, first as the loyal stepdaughter of the evil Outworld emperor Shao Kahn; then his enemy, tearing herself away from his grasp and freeing her home realm of Edenia; and then leading an army into Outworld to combat any chance of Kahn rising to power again.

Kitana shared a subtle love interest with Earthrealm champion Liu Kang until he was killed by the Deadly Alliance, though they were briefly reunited prior to his resurrection. Despite her loyalty to Shao Kahn for most of her life, she has aligned herself on the good side after learning the truth about her past and real family. A disfigured clone of Kitana, given the name Mileena, was introduced as Kitana’s twin sister, and has been a prominent arch-rival in the original game series’ timeline

Mortal Kombat – Deadly Alliance Cosplay: Frost (Marie-Claude Bourbonnais) Cosplay 26 APR 2009

Mortal Kombat Frost

Mortal Kombat Frost1By Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, Midway was already pretty much out of ideas in terms of new characters, so they did the best that they could manage: they introduced knock-off versions of the original bunch! Frost, essentially the female version of fan favourite Sub-Zero just happened to be one of these, and as a character, wasn’t all that particularly interesting, but at least they did bother to give her a bit of a back-story I suppose…

According to legend, Frost is a Lin Kuei warrior with the ability to manipulate ice and cold, and who after impressing Sub-Zero with her skills, was taken up by him as his protege and trained under his personal supervision. However, Sub-Zero was unable to teach her humility and in the end, Frost turned on her master as was expected by all.

This week’s cosplay dress up routine moves away a little from the ‘by the fans for the fans’ realm and instead takes a look at Marie-Claude Bourbonnais, from Montreal Canada, who specializes in Glamour photography including cosmetics, hair, fitness, fashion and erotica. Latex is her thing and with the help of skilled photographer Gil Perron, she easily brings Frost to life (though it must be said with just a tad less clothing if you compare it to the original below!)

Soccer anyone?
