How to Make a "Mortal Kombat" Mask
Design your own Mortal Kombat mask. (Karate Collection 3 image by Infs from

"Mortal Kombat" was the hit fighter video game of the 1990s and was followed by several sequels and two movies. The video game centres around a martial arts tournament where different characters face off against each other, using their own special powers and moves. The list of characters is quite long, but the two best subjects for a costume would have to be Sub-Zero and Scorpion. These two characters have become iconic, representing not just Mortal Kombat, but also pop culture's idea of kung fu.

  1. 1

    Fold the bandanna in half to make a triangle like you would if you were to tie it over your face. Choose a blue bandanna if you are making a Sub-Zero mask or a yellow bandanna if you are making a Scorpion mask. Hold the bandanna so the point of the triangle points down. Staple the bandanna over the dust mask so the top of the bandanna is stapled over the nose of the dust mask.

  2. 2

    Put the dust mask over your nose and mouth and fasten the straps behind your ears. Tie the bandanna to the back of your head.

  3. 3

    Put on a black sweatshirt and pull the drawstring tight around your face. Tie the drawstring together and tuck it inside the shirt. Tuck the bottom of the bandanna into your shirt.
