A cosplayer has introduced their gender-bent version of God of War’s Kratos to Reddit using the Leviathan Axe, as well as Walter White’s head, which is now a Mimir.
Kratos could face some competition before God of War Ragnarok‘s release after an actor put their spin on the titular deity.
Reddit user u/BootlegMoon shared their version of the Ghost of Sparta as a female version in all its fierce glory. The costume includes a replica Leviathan Axe, which is a mix of armor and fur garments, Kratos’ signature red tattoos, as well as the head of Mimir. When commenting on the prop with the head cut off, BootlegMoon says that Mimir’s head was originally the head of a Walter White mask before it was put on, glued, and then lightly painted to get the desired look. BootlegMoon commented that Mimir was the most enjoyable part of the costume to create.
