A long time fan favorite, the video game Mortal Kombat has given us a variety of fun characters to cosplay. One in particular is Kurtis Stryker. This costume guide will help you pull off his signature look. The clothing portion is brief, but this is an accessory heavy cosplay. Simply wear a Blue Compression T Shirt coupled with a pair of Men’s Tactical Pants. Then cap it off with a rugged pair of Tactical Boots.
Accessorize the look with an Adjustable Velcro Strap Cadet Cap, a Police Badge and Swat Patch. Get the necessary equipment by adding a pair of Assault Gloves, Elbow Protector Pads, and Tactical Knee Pads. Arm yourself by holster Defender Pistols in a Vertical Shoulder Holster and a Waistband Holster.
If you’re looking for an opportunity to show off your muscles or you just like Mortal Kombat, Kurtis Stryker is a worthy choice. This cosplay maybe a little accessory heavy to get a truly authentic look. You can purchase a shirt much like Stryker’s at any online costume site. Pick up the necessary hat, weapons, and patches there as well.
You’ll mostly likely already have a similar pair of black pants. For all the padding, we suggest checking out a sporting gear store. Group cosplay with Kurtis Stryker can be fun because there are so many wildy dressed characters within the Mortal Kombat video game. We suggest adding Kaiden, Shao Khan, and Liu Kang. Be sure to check out the featured pics for more style ideas. Send in your pictures to show your best Stryker look!
The difficult part about getting background information on characters from older video games like Mortal Kombat is that not much information is available. Unlike today, the storylines were vague and heavy on gameplay. Kurtis Stryker’s bio screen featured in Mortal Kombat 3 reveals that he is a New York City Policeman who leads the Riot Control Squad. He was on duty the day Outworld’s portal opened over the city.
Upon the removal of all the human souls by Shao Kahn, Stryker was spared. It wasn’t until he received a vision from Raiden that he knew his real purpose. He needed to help liberate Earthrealm and serve and protect the few left behind and avenge the lives of those lost. Armed with modern weapons like tasers, explosives, and firearms he is a fierce fighter and a force to be reckoned with in battle.
