How to Dress Like Raiden from Mortal Kombat


Raiden is known for wearing his iconic white and blue karate gi. You can use a regular white karate gi and attach blue cloth on top of it to complete the look.


You can make accessories with felt or fabric. For the sleeves you will need silver-colored felt and stitch or affix it to the sleeves.

To make the cross lines of the calves you can use a thread that is thick enough to imitate the doubles.

For the center of the costume you need a felt or fabric ribbon of black color and with golden foam. Proceed to make 5 figures similar to Raiden’s to add it to the ribbon.

Cut the two figures on the sleeves of the suit in gold fabric. To avoid damaging the gi, use a hook to fix it to the suit.


Raiden’s cylindrical hat is one of the most important aspects of the costume.You can make it with cardboard. Just make a large cone to simulate Raiden’s hat and adjust it to your head. Use an elastic so that it does not fall off while cosplaying.


Combine white stockings with black sandals and use the thick thread to cover your calves. Another option is to use black boots.
