Kombat Kon 2016: Kosplay & Kreations Spotlight

The inaugural Kombat Kon proved an outstanding success, gathering fans of all walks to celebrate the long running Mortal Kombat franchise. The event was headlined by an all-star cast responsible for the original arcade games, but that wasn't the only representation of kreativity at the event!

As outlined in MK Online's special report: the event invited fans to dress as their favourite characters, and join art vendors in paying tribute to the iconic fighting game franchise! In this article, we cast the spotlight on the warriors who took part in the Kosplay Kontest, and showed off their unique kreations! [Click pics to enlarge].


Among the costumed fans was Jade Parrish -- daughter of John Parrish, who famously played Jax in Mortal Kombat II and 3! Her Kombat kredentials were minted in green, dressed as her namesake: Jade!

Fans brought a wide array of characters to life in the kosplay parade. A movie inspired Scorpion and Mortal Kombat X Kung Lao were among the stand-outs, seen battling in front of a brilliant Dan "Toasty" Forden cosplayer in our main article. There was also a Sub-Zero, Johnny Cage, Kitana, Liu Kang, Raiden, Jax.


When the kosplayers thinned out, there was no shortage of sights to behold. Adam W. Michaels was in attendance to sell some impressive works of tribute art, capturing impressions of characters from Mortal Kombat X, Mortal Kombat: Legacy and other series, too. He also modeled shirts featuring the MK logo, fighters and Shirai Ryu insignia.


Rounding out the unique kreations was the Kombatpedia project championed by Myke Snow and Anthony. They had a mock example of the book, as well as various items supporting the fan fuelled cause. MK Online first reported on a petition for the book back in July, 2015. It has since gained the consideration of DK Publishing, but is allegedly yet to get the greenlight from NetherRealm Studios.


Finally, Galloping Ghost Arcade gym master supreme Doc Mack shows off his own kustom kreated fight stick [below]. Adorned in spikes, twin retractable blades, and the image of Kung Lao -- it's the ultimate arcade weapon!

Yeah, Shang_Heihachi bought up a ton of Adam Michaels' art work. Apparently even his wife liked some of it, so he didn't have to just hang all of it in his man cave, haha. I'll probably be ordering from him myself.




Well, you all got your Tremor now. Can we finally move on?

Ah, good stuff, good stuff. Great costumes.

Is that Kitana with Rayden n Jax also kosplaying a certain famous painting?
First thing that popped into my mind was the Mona Lisa.

Me and the wife are going to attempt and go in the next year or two. it would be a dream come true for me to attend. I'm hoping to meet John Turk, and fellow fans.

Awesome article, Mick. Can't wait to see what's in store for year 2 of Kombat Kon. I have my heart set on going to year 3!
