A Compendium of Cool Comics Cosplay – X-Men Edition

09.23.11 6 years ago

To ring in the changes on our regular Friday cosplay feature, we’ve decided to make every other week a special theme week! In addition to our monthly cosplay contests, we’ll also be picking themes randomly plucked out of thin air that we think our readers would enjoy.  This week, we present a special X-men themed week, spotlighting what we think is some of the best X-men related cosplay from around the world.
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 this month is:

  • September: The DC Reboot
  • In the meantime, let’s continue with this week’s X-men themed selection!

    Those of us who grew up watching the 90s X-men cartoon remember Jubilee with fondness and this cosplay definitely deserves a place in our listings.

    There’s some pretty stiff competition amongst Rogue cosplayers to pull off the perfect costume, but Dia comes pretty close, we’re sure you’ll agree!
