Lady Lyria Made Me A Mortal Kombat Character

So my infamous TikTok back story time. So when I was a kid (I was a real tomboy btw) my cousin Rene was a gamer. He would come from Alice, TX and stay with my maternal grandmother. He graduated me from NES to Super NES and before the release of the game, got me into Mortal Kombat 2. My cousin was like a brother to me so I looked up to him and wanted to go everywhere with him. On one of our many adventures, we went to Peter Piper Pizza and so began my obsession with one character in particular, Kitana. Of course I was also the fat kid so I was always told you’ll never be a Kitana. Broke my heart to hear that since I’m not the petite delicate flower. For the longest time, I swore that when I lost weight in my adult life, I would be Kitana for Halloween. Fast forward to Pandemic Problem life and I don’t have to explain the horror stories as we all have a few stories or to share. So you read about the other little shut alumni, but one girl I could always count on was my girl Lady Lyria. So when I heard she was making masks, I was like this is a perfect time to catch up and do a little collab which has been long overdue. We caught up and then business talk. She said she had all these masks and me being the flashy Frieda, I asked for a one of a kind mask that I could purchase. This gurl always knew new well and said I have the perfect one…and like always she didn’t disappoint.

So now the question I’m asking myself can I get away driving in Cosplay being Kitana the Uber Driver 🤷🏼‍♀️. No I wouldn’t (yeah i would) but wearing this mask, makes me want to sport a whole outfit that matches. The consensus is everyone hates wearing the mask, but for me, I’m digging the thought of wearing the mask. It’s like it’s one fashion accessory, when made right can save your life when COVID19 is trying to FINISH HER (MK jargon) when it tries to rear it’s ugly head. Kitana is a hero in the the game, and wearing a mask makes you a hero too, especially when you have a kick ass one to sport. I’m always about paying it forward and as my girl helped me through those fashion school deadlines, I want to pay it forward by endorsing her products. Hey I might get a matching headband and really be a MK character doing rideshare. She always has the people in mind and unlike some of our other alumni, doesn’t inflate prices. Here are some of the samples she sent me as well.

The great thing is they they are reusable and also have the filter. So do your part and help local businesses and follow guidelines. Who knows, you may be someone’s hero one day. And maybe I’ll be a Mortal Kombat character too. 🤷🏼‍♀️
