A Mortal Kombat Halloween!

titleIt was my favorite holiday of the year, HALLOWEEN, and I was ready to kick some major ass in my Scorpion costume. This was a last-minute execution of an old idea (I’ve been wanting to do this for some time now) so I basically frankensteined an already made mens costume into a women’s costume to have it done on time. Though this may seem like an easy task, it really wasn’t lol. I had to resew elastic bands to all of the pieces because they popped the minute I put the costume on, I had to sew pieces of the costume to a body suit, I had to buy a full face mask and cut out a hole for my face that was accurate (I had to purchase 2 because I messed up the 1st time), and I painted my swords with nail polish to match everything. I had no time at all to make a chain spear but I made the best of it. I’m going to wear this costume again for Comicon but it’ll be the upgraded version I had initially pictured in my head that is more accurate of the character. Anyway, let me tell you how I discovered Scorpion. When I was a kid, I loved video games. I loved them more than any other toy or gadget a kid could play with. As a tomboy who hadn’t yet discovered what feminism was; I would get very upset when games didn’t have female characters. Guess I started early? haha. So naturally when I would come across a video game that had women in them, I would pick the female character by default. When Mortal Kombat first came out, the only female character they had was Sonya. She was the only character I played but whenever I would have to fight Scorpion I would always be so impressed with his moves. Sounds romantic doesn’t it? haha. Anyway, he became one of the only male characters I willingly decided to play in a game that had a female character I could choose. I just thought he was so cool and that cool never left me after all of these years so it made sense as a Scorpio who usually celebrates her birthday on Halloween, to just go as Scorpion. Him and Sonya amongst other characters from different games like Cammy and Chung Li from Street Fighter were such a huge part of my childhood. It was really cute to be stopped by a bunch of gamers who were big fans of Scorpion and really loved that I gave it a female twist. However, I wasn’t the first, there are tons of female cosplayers who have done scorpion so I tried to give it my own twist. It came out amazing to say the least and I had the best time walking around Vegas with my friends. My costume caused a frenzy wherever I went and it was pretty cool that I didn’t bump into anyone with the same costume except for men haha. There’s a timeline of my night inside along with photos of my friends who also had great costumes!

IMG_3791Here are some shots I took later on in the night at the Linq that have a clear view of my costume.

  1. Loved the costumes, you all looked great. Must have been really nice to walk around with no coat on for a change. Makes me think about going to Vegas next year for Halloween.

  2. I am sooooo snatching up this idea for Halloween at the end of this month! You’re awesome! Where did you get the bodysuit? Or a picture of what it looks like! Thank you, and GREAT job!

  3. Do you still have this costume? If so could i buy it from you?! I’m not creative enough to do it myself 😔

    • They are swords and I bought them at a thrift store. This was a mens costume I took apart and turned into a women’s costume which is why you cannot find it. ❤

  4. I absolutely love your creativity! Where did you buy the original costume from before you customized it?

  5. Hey Hun can you please tell us where did you buy the original men’s costume from, so I can customise it myself as similar to yours? Thanks

  6. hi! where did you get your body suit and contacts? i got the costume and im trying to find the rest. thanks so much. ur costume is an inspiration!

  7. I did my version of this for Halloween. Thanks for the inspiration. I also took apart the mens costume. I hot glue the pieces together though.

    My brother says I look like Scorpions Girlfriend from the front and a pole dancer from the back.

    (Also Note I do not have the body suit lol just some black spandex and a pretty tank)

  8. Hey! Absolutely love this! 😍😍😍 I’m also a Scorpio and thought this would be an awesome idea. I have been wanting to do this for a long time now, but never got into it. I have some time now to get into it. I am going to try. Quick question. Where did you get the mask?

  9. Hi i love your scorpion costume can you tell me where to buy this or how can i put this together. My husband is in love with scorpion and want to make his fantasy come to life
