Kung Lao from Mortal Kombat Costume for Cosplay & Halloween

He may be a warrior but Kung Lao is first and foremost a pacifist, gaining more happiness creating peace rather than violence. However, he will not hesitate to fight those who hurt his family, friends, and the people of Earthrealm.

Descended from the Great Kung Lao and as a former Shaolin monk, Kung Lao’s outfit is very reminiscent of his Chinese origins. He wears a black Chinese vest, bright blue pants, and a deadly razor-rimmed hat. Here’s everything you need to look like Kung Lao.

Kung Lao Cosplay & Costume Guide
# Item Description
1 Black Chinese-Collared Sleeveless Vest Kung Lao hails his origins by wearing a Chinese button-down sleeveless vest.
2 Bright Blue Pants Being a warrior does not mean you can’t have fun so Kung Lao prefers a quirky pair of bright blue pants.
3 Plain Black Sneakers When the need to fight arises, Kung Lao must be ready so he wears a comfy pair of plain black sneakers.
4 Black Fabric and Red Fabric Cut a rectangular piece from the black fabric and sew it on the front of your pants to copy Kung Lao’s loincloth. Then, wrap the red fabric around your waist like Kung Lao’s belt.
5 Black Leg Guards and Black Arm Guards Even if he’s a peacemaker, Kung Lao knows he needs to fight so he keeps himself extra protected using black leg guards and arm guards.
6 Black Flat Hat Use a black flat hat as a base for Kung Lao’s trademark weapon, his Razor-rimmed Hat.
6 Metallic Silver Paint and Red Paint Use the metallic silver paint on the rims of your flat hat to create the razor effect, and apply red paint to your hat and leg guards for more detail.
