|This will be the outfit from "Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe", but with a few parts of his "Mortal Kombat 2011" thrown in.|
For the most part, I am hoping that this will have the base of the "MK vs DCU" version, with the peripheral parts from his MK 2011 version (e.g. arm guards)
My own spin on this will come from the fact that my hair will be longer than Kano's is in the games, since his ranges from pretty much bald to a long crew cut. This is because I have no intention at all of cutting my hair that short. Not sure what I'm going to do with my hair just yet, but I'll make sure it looks right for the character.
I will hopefully have this ready for October Expo, assuming the face plate works out.
EDIT (01/11/2011) - Classing this as Complete, but there's still a few things to sort out. Just minor tweaks though, so will be sorted by the next time I wear this

Mask Information (Posted 5th December 2012)
I've just discovered something quiet interesting about the relation between Kanos mask in Mortal Kombat, and my mask....
Taken from Wikipedia -
This shows that I made my mask in the same way as the props department of the original Mortal Kombat game
General Update (Posted 28th September 2011)
This costume is going nicely to plan.
The "soft" parts are sourced and altered as needed. Just need to hem the sleeve holes on the shirt.
My knifes are about 75% complete. I've done the hard part of building them, so now I just need to sand them, then paint and wrap the handles. I've decided to be a bit fancy on the blades, so once the edges have sanded smooth, and the sides keyed, I will be using steel leaf to make them appear metal. I hope it works out :P
The most difficult part of this costume is going to be the Baldric and the light on his Chest. I have a small LED light I will be using, and will be putting the main part of the electronics in one of the belt pouches. I will just need to get the Baldric to sit right on me....
Ref Pics and Knifes (Posted 25th August 2011)
Been having issues getting good reference pics. It seems it's more difficult than I thought taking photographs of a PC Monitor :P.
The two knifes that go along with this costume are coming along quite nicely.
