A Compendium of Cool Comics Cosplay: January 18th

01.18.13 5 years ago

It’s time once again for our Friday comics cosplay feature, casting the spotlight on the best comics related costumery from the cosplay community.  We’re focusing on those cosplayers who we think deserve special recognition for coming up with the best costumes, whatever the budget, and also the photographers who capture them for posterity.

This week we’re featuring some awesome cosplay of Gambit, Batgirl, Iron Man, Supergirl, Hobgoblin, Red Hood,  Kid Loki, Harley Quinn, The Joker, Captain America and Rick Grimes!

Gamma Squad is committed to giving a voice to the cosplay community that thrives in communities like our friends at TheSuperheroCostumingForum.com. Each week we aim to spotlight our favorite costumes and, in addition, we also host a regular cosplay contest, with the results forming a special theme week. We invite all cosplayers, costumers and photographers to submit pictures of their work that relates to the theme (or any cosplay in general!) 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.

Our current theme is:

  • The Comic Book Stars of the 90s!

For now, enjoy this week’s selection!
