We made our Mortal Kombat costume starting from mainly scratch. We really liked Mortal Kombat and wanted to be Scorpion and Sub-Zero for Halloween, but we couldn't find any decent costumes.
And when I was just looking on the internet I saw Julio's submission, from California. Thank you so much, I loved the plans and the idea from MK4, it was a great costume idea and we made them pretty much the same. Except, we used thick foam for the sash and covered it with ordinary black shirts all the way around. Then put our colors on(yellow, blue) with fabric glue. And the under clothes were just some tight sweats and a long sleeve shirt from Wal-Mart.
Very simple to make and only cost about $35. If your looking to make these costumes for Halloween or anything this could be some help. But also look for the other Mortal Kombat submission, which really helped me out.
