If you have read any of my other cosplay articles you will know that I love video games and if you have not…I love video games. So, when I come across a particularly well done gaming related cosplay – I instantly love it.  And this one is no exception, which is why it is my cosplay of the day.


Mileena Cosplay by  AsherWarr

Today’s cosplay of the day is Mileena from the Mortal Kombat games. The above absolutely awesome cosplayer is AsherWarr and I think you might agree, that she has cosplayed the hell out of her.

Below is what the actual character looks like:

I think the similarities between the two speak for themselves.

I am actually super impressed with this rendition, as on the initial first glance you might be fooled into thinking that this getup would be pretty easy to put together as there is really not very much of it – the thing is though, when you think about it, it is for this exact reason, that it is not simple at all.

Everything has to be customed to the exact measurements of the wearer. There is not much fabric, but the design is very strong and precise. So, if the design/colour/size etc. is wrong in any way, it is obviously and instantly noticeable. I love the deep shade of purple and the facemask and the gloves. Her accessories are perfection. I also love the meticulous attention to detail that is evident throughout the ensemble. Plus the boots look super hot.

As I said above, I do love gaming related cosplay and this one draws from one of those games that is always good for a bit of fun. If you like what you see, you can view more of AsherWarr’s amazing portfolio of work on her DeviantART site here.
