Mileena is © Netherrealm studios
Hello there, I'm so sorry this is late. Thank you so much for your kind words! It is very likely I will do more pictures of Mileena in the future when I have more time. I'm flattered you like my depiction of her too. When and if I do a full body picture of her I'll just mention now she probably wont have the same outfit on as she does in the games (because I think her design is unnecessarily revealing) and I'll probably redesign her outfit all together. Thank you for your comment again! It's very much appreciated
Yeah, Mileena’s wardrobe – especially her MK9 primary – has always been excessively revealing, even compared to the other females. I can understand it to an extent, though: flaunt her body to distract her opponents from her hideous face, lure them in, and strike when they least expect it. Even though she wears a mask/veil and is very capable of tearing them apart with her weapons (and teeth), I interpret Mileena to be the kind of person to “play” with their food before eating it, and perhaps even go deep enough to say that Mileena is, deep down, insecure about her face, so she needs to be extra sure of herself and brag about her better features (thus being her body). I mean, it’s a better excuse than serving for the male fan-base and reducing her character down to a pair of tits with teeth… If anything, Sonya’s outfit actually annoys me the most (she’s a military figure, yet she’s wearing that kind of top in MK9, not to mention stiletto boots?)
Eh, sorry for rambling xD Point is, I will support your possible redesign of Mileena. Let’s hope perhaps the next MK game will do better with the females’ outfits.
Oh thanks very much!
That's a really interesting idea actually! I've never thought of it like that... I'd much rather think of her using her physicality as an advantage rather than to please the male audience too . I've only ever played MK9 so I'm afraid I can't be considered a 'true fan', but you clearly have a better idea of who Mileena is than me and I can definitely understand her taking that approach to attack her enemies. I have grown to understand how she may be confident with her sexuality even though I hated it at first, but I think it suits her as a character and I've grown to appreciate it funnily enough XD (because I usually can't stand characters that are overly sexual ugh, but I think Mileena has an odd girlish charm that I actually like haha).
And oh dear... the Sonya wardrobe malfunction. What were they thinking seriously??! I'd probably like Sonya a TON more if her outfit wasn't completely ridiculous. I agree, It completely ruins her military status.
Thanks so much again! I'm afraid I'm in the middle of A levels at the moment but I really do hope I can do a redesign of Mileena in the future. And yes! We can only hope
