Kat "Kitty Kaboom" Contreras has been deep into the fighting game community for a number of years now cosplaying the scene's most iconic characters at events including some past highlights of Kolin and even Broly.

With the recent release of Samurai Shodown, Kitty Kaboom has taken the opportunity to show off some of her real martial arts training as the deadly Shiki.

Taking to the beach, Kat's Shiki shines as the waves rush in where she even went as far as to get the heterochromia contacts and snake tattoo on her back to fully embody the look.

Kitty Kaboom's prop katanas were crafted for her by her martial arts mentor and longtime friend, Dragon Dronet, who has been involved in prop and costume making in films like Jurassic Park and Pirates of the Caribbean according to Contreras.

She was even featured at one of the recent Wednesday Night Fight events where she kicked off the Samurai Shodown block with a special martial arts performance using her blades which you can see below.

"This is just the beginning of all the Samurai Shodown cosplay coming up this year," Contreras told us. "Make sure to catch me at our Peacock Jive and Kitty Kaboom booth at EVO to come see our merch and take a pic with my Darli Dagger, Shiki and a special surprise cosplay. My goal this year is to travel around the world going to different gaming tournaments and conventions in all my Samurai Shodown cosplays. And special shout outs to Samurai Shodown, SNK, Athlon games and their teams that have helped out the community so much here in the states! Thank you!"
