FOTD: Mileena of Mortal Kombat

More Halloween / Cosplay inspiration! I enjoyed completing this look, although it took a while to do due to the tedious nature of applying the “teeth.” I used french tip false nails (from Sally’s Beauty Supply) for the teeth. I had to cut and file each nail into the desired shape, whew!
