General Sonya Blade is both an original character and the very first female character to debut in the Mortal Kombat video game series. She is a female soldier and member of Earthrealm’s Special Forces unit. Her arch-rival is the Black Dragon leader, Kano who killed her former partner is bent on destroying everything Sonya stands for. Sonya is headstrong but cares deeply about the lives of her fellow comrades. Use this Sonya Blade costume guide to dress up just like her.
Let’s talk about how you can cosplay to do justice to her appearance. Start by wearing a Sonya Blade Costume. Next, wear a pair of Aviator Sunglasses. Add a Women’s Demi Cami, Cadet Hat, and Leather Bracelet Cuff. Move down to the Waist Web Belt Strap with a Right Handed Leg Holster. Now slide in your trusty Spring Air Pistol and you’re ready to fight!
Even though Sonya Blade was a late addition to the original Mortal Kombat game that was released in 1992, she should be a top consideration for cosplay. One of the least popular character when debuted, she is now considered one of the top Mortal Kombat characters of all-time. Now, you can dress up like this intense fighter!
But there’s no fun in being a loner, Sonya Blade isn’t after all. This is a great opportunity for you to bring together friends and ask them to join the party. Cosplay as a group with favorite video game character. You could make it very specific and only cosplay Mortal Kombat characters like Raiden, Scorpion, or Liu Kang. Or you can make it all about the strong female icons in the video game industry. The possibilities are endless… just like our costume guides. So, now’s not the time to stop. Start checking out our other guides for more ideas on what you and your friends can cosplay. Good luck and have a great time!
You can always find inspiration from the unlikeliest of places. Sonya Blade is one of them. In a world filled with male heroes and warriors, women rarely get the attention they deserve. But, Sonya Blade from the Midway Mortal Kombat video game series breaks all these stereotypes. She’s a General and commanding officer of Earthrealm’s Special Forces Unit. She’s not just a tough, generic female role model either. She’s also beautiful, compassionate, and loving as well.
Sonya Blade fights for all the right reasons and her popularity within in Mortal Kombat is due to her charming identity rather than her physical attractiveness. Cosplay her could serve as inspiration as well, and send the right message as to what feminism really means!
