Many of Mortal Kombat’s characters are memorable and popular, and Sub-Zero is no exception. He’s got a cool look and chilly powers. Cosplayer Lady Annaka has always wanted to portray a character from the game, and Sub-Zero has been her lifelong favorite. She adapted his ensemble beautifully and even though special effects made the photos look wicked, the costume also looks cool without any manipulations. Annaka told Geek x Girls the following about making the costume:
I made the whole costume myself, except for the leotard I got off of Amazon. It took me a month to create the whole costume, including the mask, and all of the armor with Worbla and Eva foam. I couldn’t be Sub-Zero without his epic fatality move, so of course I added a skull with the spinal cord prop I found on Amazon, and just painted red for the blood and I even made a little Scorpion mask for it as well! I also made a really cool ice ball prop with LED lights image to look cool on pictures as well to have fun with. This is by far one of my favorite cosplays I have done and made.
