A Compendium of Cool Comics Cosplay: January 13th

01.13.12 6 years ago

It’s time once again for our Friday comic book cosplay feature, spotlighting the best superhero (and villain) related costuming from the cosplay community.  We’re casting the spotlight onto those cosplayers who we think deserve special recognition for coming up with the best costumes, whatever the budget, and the photographers who capture them for posterity.
Gamma Squad is committed to giving a voice to the cosplay community that thrives in groups like our friends at 
TheSuperheroCostumingForum.com. 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 theme for the upcoming month is:

  • Super Villains and Diabolical Foes

For now, enjoy this week’s selection!

Another fantastic Starfire costume – this time from Rosanna Rocha, who certainly cuts an eyecatching figure.

Despite being a high-profile Avenger for years, Quicksilver doesn’t usually get the love from cosplayers. It’s nice to see that’s not always the case.

Cartoon, rather than comic characters. But in the case of this kick ass cosplay, exceptions can be made.

Neil Gaiman’s Death is often a popular choice with more gothicly inclined cosplayers and here’s another great take on the character.

A twist on Sue Richard’s most recognizable costume, but a welcome one as this cosplayer puts her own mark on the character.

Again, we’re stretching the rules to include this version of Kid Flash – lifted from the Young Justice cartoon. But it’s such a great costume, who could resist?

And wrapping up this week, a gorgeous version of the fan-favorite Spider-man character from our friends at the SCF.
