Cosplayer Kan Stelar showed off an incredible makeup transformation, turning herself into Mortal Kombat’s Mileena. 

Mortal Kombat is one of the most popular fighting game series in the world. It features many unique characters that play a role in its lengthy story mode, making the game a popular choice among cosplayers.

Of its many characters, there is one in particular that is incredibly popular with fans and cosplayers alike, Mileena. She is a sai-wielding assassin that is often seen wearing a large face mask which her monstrous mouth, which covers most of her face with sharp teeth.

Midway GamesMileena is a Mortal Kombat fan-favorite.

However, she is still portrayed as one of the most beautiful characters in the series, with the mask hiding her monstrous features. This gives cosplayers flexibility with her, as they can choose to wear the mask or play the monstrous figure.

Kan Stelar decided to go with the latter for her cosplay and showed just how impressive makeup can be as she recreated Mileena’s terrifying features.

The makeup was absolutely incredible, transforming Kan’s into one of a monster with sharp teeth seemingly sticking out of her cheeks, matching her face with Mileena’s. It was incredibly detailed and blended in superbly well making it tough to tell that it wasn’t real.

While the makeup was the most impressive part of the cosplay she didn’t stop there. Kan also pulled off an amazing Mileena outfit, matching the character’s iconic clothes incredibly well.

There was one error, however, as the cosplayer was wearing red, while the Mortal Kombat character’s outfit is pink. Although, she explained in the comments that the costume was a gift, so it’s probably something that can be overlooked, especially as the makeup is so impressive.

Many cosplayers have gone with the Mileena look before, but only a few have opted for the monstrous look. While most of those have done a great job, the incredibly high level on makeup in this one definitely puts it near the top of the list for Mileena cosplays.


Overwatch cosplayer sprints into battle as Soldier 76 with female twist

Cosplayers are no strangers to creating unique outfits based on Overwatch heroes and Hendoart proved to be no different with her stunning female take on Soldier 76.

Soldier 76 is one of the original classic Overwatch heroes, having been around since the game’s launch. With his iconic red, white, and blue jacket, mask, plus heavy pulse rifle, Jack Morrison can easily stand out in a crowd.

That all said, cosplayer and streamer Sarah ‘Hendoart’ Hendo decided to tackle the DPS hero from her own perspective, in what she called a “mini gender bend.”

As you can see from the photos, Hendo absolutely nailed the look of Soldier 76 getting the jacket, gloves, gun, and even biotic field down pat.

Meanwhile, she also added some of her own flair. Thanks to her feminine figure, the outfit manages to take on a life of its own, especially with her flowing brown hair behind 76’s mask.

However, the best part comes in the form of a little video she created with a fellow Mercy cosplayer. In the clip, the battle-scarred Hendo begs for healing and even “spams” for it – a bit of a meme in the Overwatch community.

“Just a battle-damaged Soldier and a Mercy who dgaf about me,” she captioned the video.

Eventually, the Mercy begins to nurse Hendo back to health and starts wrapping her arm in a bandage, and evaluates the rest of the hero’s injuries.

Hendo’s cosplays aren’t limited to just Overwatch either. She has cosplayed as many different DC and Marvel superheroes including Spider-Man, Harley Quinn, Joker, Mary Jane, and Venom just to name a few.

Soldier 76 isn’t the only Overwatch cosplay she’s done either. In the past, she has done many different takes on the tank hero D.Va including her School Girl and Tangerine themed skins.

With Overwatch 2 on the way and multiple more heroes coming with the sequel, this likely isn’t the last we’ve seen from Hendoart and quite frankly, we can’t wait to see what else she has in store.
