Welcome again to our weekly feature on our pick of the best of comics cosplay! With San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, there’ll be hundreds of fans stepping out in costume, so here’s a little taster of the skill and craft that will be on display.
Gamma Squad is committed to giving a voice to the cosplay community. Each week there is a spotlight on our favorite costumes and a monthly cosplay contest in which we’d love for cosplayers to participate. 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:
With only a week to go before we announce the winners of our Avengers cosplay contest, it’s your last chance to get those entries in! But for now, it’s another selection of the best of comics cosplay.

The Superhero Costuming Forum is home to, and features, some amazing cosplayers. Here the original Green Lantern steps from the pages of the Golden Age in this beautifully realized costume.
The Asgardian warrior Sif steps straight out of the pages of a Kirby comic book thanks to Pistnuto’s superlative costuming skills.
The amazing LJinto captures this shot of Jerry in his ambitious Mr. Sinister costume. A friendly smile from this X-villain.
Birds of Prey’s Dinah Lance is brought to life by BladeAlchemist, who surely looks like she could kick all our asses in that costume.
Spidey9323 of The League of Heroes has some added extras to his costume to help him stand out from the crowd. A webbing backpack? Very practical!
A great shot of a great cosplayer. Kara Zor-El looks just about ready to take to the skies in this picture.
Coretooz goes 90s style in his Bishop cosplay, making sure to include at least one gun bigger than his head.
And proving you don’t need a big budget to create memorable (and hilarious) costumes…
