Sonya Blade, a mainstay character in the Mortal Kombat series, has yet to be revealed as a playable character in Mortal Kombat 1. Fans of the franchise have expressed their disappointment on social media as the game's launch is approaching. But in an effort to distract fans from her absence, talented cosplayer ItsKawaiiKitten has created an incredible cosplay of Sonya Blade that is sure to impress.
ItsKawaiiKitten is well-known for her exceptional cosplay, particularly in the realm of fighting games. And in anticipation of the release of Mortal Kombat 1 next month, she has shared her latest creation with fans. This time, she has chosen to cosplay as Sonya Blade, harking back to the classic design from Mortal Kombat 3.
The outfit and overall look closely resemble Sonya's iconic appearance in the game, complete with her light green, black, and white attire. ItsKawaiKitten pays meticulous attention to detail, ensuring that every aspect matches the source material, from the outfit to the hair and headband.
In some of the photos, ItsKawaiiKitten goes the extra mile by adding special effects to recreate Sonya's famous Kiss of Death Fatality. The result is an incredibly accurate portrayal of the character, making this cosplay one of the best for classic Sonya Blade.
Although there is uncertainty about Sonya's role as a playable character in Mortal Kombat 1, she will be available as an assist through the game's Kameo Fighters mechanic. Sonya has already been confirmed as part of the Kameo roster, so fans will still be able to experience her in some capacity.
Mortal Kombat 1 is scheduled for release on September 19, 2023, and will be available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Nintendo Switch. While waiting for the game to launch, be sure to check out ItsKawaiiKitten's incredible Sonya cosplay, and don't forget to explore her other impressive works on her social media channels.
