Mortal Kombat’s Sub-Zero and Frozen protagonist Elsa may be two of the most recognizable ice-themed characters in history, but they couldn’t be further opposites. That didn’t stop a cosplayer from combining the two in a dynamic crossover cosplay, though.

Cosplayer and artist Lisa Mancini decided to not only given Sub-Zero a female twist, but to combine him with Elsa for some added flair.

While Sub-Zero normally has his head covered, Mancini decided to let her blonde hair flow in a French braid, just like how Elsa’s does in the Frozen films.

Additionally, she added the Mortal Kombat fighter’s cold, dead eyes to the mix, along with the face mask that the character wears in combat.

For the outfit itself, Mancini decided to give Sub-Zero’s attire a bit of a feminine adjustment that exposes more of her body and legs.

However, she also included the spiky shoulder blades found in some variants of the character’s iconic costume.

Most of you probably don't know I do graphic design full time so here's a composite photo I edited of my Sub Elsa cosplay.⁣ ❄️? ⁣ Funny enough, I got into graphic design because as early as elementary school I'd spend a lot of my time editing terrible photos of me as mermaids, faeries or with super powers like a dweeb. LOOK AT ME NOW FAM.⁣ ?? ⁣ Photography: @concrunch⁣ Cosplay/Design/Edit: By me⁣ ⁣ #mortalkombat #mortalkombatcosplay #subzero #subzerocosplay #elsacosplay #frozencosplay #mashup #coronapocalypse #mortalkombat11⁣

To round out the ensemble, the cosplayer decided to opt for a pair of platform heel boots. Overall, the costume does a good job at not only being a female version of Sub-Zero, but adds some Elsa flair, too.

In a couple of stylish Instagram photos, Mancini decided to graphically upgrade her cosplay combination with some visual effects.

“Funny enough, I got into graphic design because as early as elementary school I’d spend a lot of my time editing terrible photos of me as mermaids, faeries or with super powers like a dweeb,” she wrote.

The close-up looks especially menacing, as if she’s ready to perform some sort of fatality on anyone who opposes her.

While Mortal Kombat crossovers aren’t normally well-recieved in the video game sense, such as Mortal Kombat vs DC, Disney has had better luck with Kingdom Hearts. Maybe if we’re lucky, one day we’ll see a Mortal Kombat with fighters mixed with Disney characters.

Until then, cosplayers like Lisa Mancini have us covered.

Apex Legends cosplayer plunders loot on Olympus as gunslinger Loba

Loba is one of the sassiest characters in Apex Legends, and cosplayers love stepping into her knee-high boots, but one has really stunned her fans with a masterful piece.

Apex Legends players are drawn to their favorite legends for different reasons. Some like them for their aesthetic and personality, others like them for their skills and ultimates. However, it’s hard to name one more universally loved than Loba.

Loba has it all, from a unique look and an interesting backstory to a larger-than-life personality. She’s also incredibly useful on the battlefield. The fact she can teleport around makes her an absolute menace in gunfights.

However, her true value lies in being able to spot high-quality loot and teleport it to her squad. In that sense, she’s the ultimate team player, and it’s the reason why she is often in demand.

Loba has one of the biggest personalities in Apex Legends.

Loba is a popular choice among Apex Legends cosplayers too. They love stepping into the boots of their favorite gunslinging bandit and embodying her attitude and elegance. Like most cosplays, they’re all incredible in their own way.

Sarenji, a popular German cosplayer with thousands of followers on Instagram, recently stole the hearts of her fans with a stunning Loba cosplay.

“I’ll take your life and your loot. I’m exceptionally good at both!” she said, in reference to a Loba quote.

The first set of photos showcases her long braided pigtails with a red-tinge, as well as the make-up, long nails, earrings, gold necklace, and the white and grey chest piece with gold seams. 

The highlight, however, has to be Loba’s trademark silver staff with a wolf’s head on top. Apex Legends players well-versed in the lore will know that it was a gift she received from her father.

In the second set of photos, Sarenji gives her fans a better look at the piece from further back. It provides a more complete picture of the outfit and offers a glimpse at her leggings too.

“A gun is like a beautiful woman. Hold her tight or someone else will,“ she said, quoting Loba once again.

Sarenji didn’t hesitate to give credit where credit was due. She thanked ezcosplay for create the outfit and senpai3d_for creating the staff.

Still, it doesn’t change the fact she wore it well and played an equally important part in bringing Loba to life.
