How to Dress Like Jade from Mortal Kombat

Jade cosplay guide (main)

So you want to make a Jade cosplay costume? Alongside her ally Kitana, Jade continues to be one of the most popular Mortal Kombat characters to cosplay as. We show you how to do it right with our DIY Jade costume guide.


Jade is an Edenian warrior and a close ally of Princess Kitana. Their strong alliance was forged from childhood with the two being raised together from a young age. They have supported each other in battle countless times, particularly against Shao Kahn, who conquered Edenia and took Kitana as his adopted daughter.

Despite her close ties to Kitana, the two have also been pitted against each other on more than one occasion. This is typically as a result of manipulation and deception, with Jade being convinced that Kitana is actually an enemy of Edenia.

Jade wields a metal staff as her weapon of choice. She is a formidable warrior who when in service of Earthrealm and Edenia, proves to be a vital ally in the fight against Outworld emperor Shao Kahn and primary antagonist Shang Tsung.

Buy Jade costume items:

  1. Jade Halloween outfit
  2. Bo Staff
  3. Jade cosplay mask (Etsy)
  4. Black bikini swimsuit
  5. High heels
  6. Long black wig

The Jade cosplay outfit comes with everything you need to get started: a bodysuit, gloves, armbands, socks, belt, and chains. The costume is made from a combination of spandex and PU leather. Unfortunately, this set doesn’t come with Jade’s mask so this will need to be purchased or DIY designed seperately.

Note: Remember to check the size guide carefully before purchasing as cosplay outfits often come in different sizes than typical clothes. Fortunately, this Jade costume set is available in a total of 8 sizes from XS-3XL. That means you should be able to find an outfit that fits perfectly.

Jade’s weapon of choice is a metal staff that glowed with purple power (potentially of magical Edenian origin) in previous games but was changed to green in Mortal Kombat 11. If you want to make the most authentic Jade cosplay possible, check out the 1:1 Jade staff from Boostedprops. Otherwise, if you’re looking for a simpler Jade costume for Halloween or a one-off cosplay event, a regular Bo Staff is still a great option.

For a sexy Jade costume, we have found a terrific black bikini to wear underneath your outfit. The thong and bra set from EJsoyo on Amazon comes with metal ring accents that would pair perfectly with Jade’s chains and other metalwork.

Finish your Mortal Kombat cosplay with a pair of black heels and a long black wig, if necessary. Jade wears her hair in a loose ponytail, held with a gold hair cuff.

Jade Cosplay Makeup Tutorial

Like Kitana, Jade’s makeup is simple but very effective. Watch this excellent makeup tutorial from GlitterForever to put the finishing touches to your Jade cosplay costume.

She starts with an eye primer to ensure her makeup doesn’t smudge while fighting Edenia’s many adversaries. Next, she uses green eyeshadow to create Jade’s winged eye style. Use emerald green eyeshadow to create a gloss finish and finish with black eyeliner to create a bold border and accentuate your makeup.

You have the option to add self-adhesive rhinestones to create a more video-game-like aesthetic or leave it more natural. The rest of Jade’s cosplay makeup is relatively simple, finished with red lipstick and a little foundation.
