While controversy stirs on whether developer NeatherRealm has pulled punches when it comes to revealing costume designs, Mortal Kombat cosplayers aren’t letting that hinder their work. Specifically, cosplayer Okkido Cosplay is repping fan favorite femme fatale Kitana, complete with fans with some embedded blades. And boy does she kill it.

So far, Mortal Kombat 11 is one of the best games of 2019 coming in at a stunning 9.0 out of 10 in our review; though that isn’t to say everything is perfect.

Mortal Kombat 11 is available now on Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox One. If you haven’t picked the game up yet, it’s currently on discount over at Amazon. Meanwhile, go and support Okkido Cosplay by following her Instagram and official Facebook page for gaming and gothic cosplay.
