Cosplayer Ammie > Costume of Sonya Blade from Mortal Kombat
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- I made this costume somewhat on a whim. Jay and I decided to cosplay MK9 characters, he's a huge Sub Zero fan, and I have always loved Sonya so we thought what the heck, why not :)
The top is made of a heavy twill, it's all lined, the back lined with an olive green lining. There is also batting stuffed into the back of the top to create the padded look on the back. The pants are green lycra with pleather strips sewn into the sides. The knee and elbow pads were purchased from a bike store. The knife sheath I had already from my BSAA Jill so I was set for that. The wig is Linda Xl in 24/613, the same wig I use for my Battlesuit Jill. The dog tags were custom printed at an army surplus store and actually read Sonya's info on them :)
The boots I had on hand already, and were perfect!
I need to get more wear outta this one, I have been meaning to make a Sonya Blade cosplay for awhile now, I always liked her MK3 outfit, but fell in love with her new design. It's always fun to meet up with fellow MK fans for photos!
- Personal Thoughts:
- She's my fav MK character! I had to cosplay her at least once :)
- Styling Notes
- Just used the wig from my Battlesuit, I added the little side strands to frame my face..that's about it.
- Wig Review
- I'm never disappointed with New Look wigs, they are easy to style, and look natural while wearing. I'm always happy with them :)
