Once again it’s time for Gamma Squad’s regular Friday comic book cosplay feature, spotlighting the best superhero (and villain) related costuming from the cosplay community. With the season of cons upon us and hobby costumers demonstrating their art, there’s many cosplayers whose work we’d like to give credit to.
Gamma Squad is committed to giving a voice to the cosplay community. Each week we spotlight our favorite costumes and each month we host a cosplay contest. We’ll be picking a theme for each month and inviting cosplayers, costumers and photographers to submit related pictures of their work to our Flickr group to be considered. We’ll then pick our top choices and post them on Gamma Squad for the adoration of all.
The themes for the upcoming months are:
But in the meantime, let’s continue with this week’s selection!
Kicking things off, an absolutely fantastic version of the Marvel Girl costume from the fan favorite “X-men: First Class” comic by Ruskicho.
Hitting last year’s San Diego Comic-Con, this Hawkgirl costume is exquisite in its detail. Incredible work!
One cosplayer who’s completely captured the look and essence of a character. Complete with Cosmic Cube! For science!
Neolexicon’s cosplay of Kate Kane vividly brings to life J.H. Williams III’s memorable design for the character. Absolutely stunning.
From the tips of his star spangled sneakers to the top of his straw boater, this cosplayer nails every detail of Arcade’s gloriously ridiculous costume.

Stepping straight out of the pages of Grant Morrison’s All Star Superman book, veteran cosplayer Tia Rodemeyer’s cosplay of the super powered Lois Lane can only be described as flawless.
Spider-Man villain Venom is a tough customer and even tougher to cosplay. It’s testament to this cosplayer that they pull off such an amazing version.
With Cassandra Cain’s fate in the rebooted DC universe still uncertain, Batgirl’s fans are certain to make sure the character isn’t forgotten. The striking Batgirl design has certainly given cosplayers some great material to work with and this cosplay is one of the best.
Elektra’s another firm favorite amongst cosplayers (and probably con-goers as well). Yukilefay certainly looks the part with this take on the character.
Forbush Man cosplay. The concept itself defies any attempt at description or critique.
