Kitana Cosplays for Every Fan

Princess Kitana of Edenia has come a long way from being Shao Khan’s assassin and stepdaughter. At 10,000 years old, she has seen much war and bloodshed between the realms. Since she’s an integral part of the Mortal Kombat story, she’s been featured in every game since Mortal Kombat II. Her various warrior outfits have inspired some amazing cosplays. Here are 30 of our favorites in no particular order.
