A Compendium of Cool Comics Cosplay – July 15th

07.15.11 7 years ago 4 Comments

Once again we’re spotlighting the cosplayers who celebrate comic book characters in our weekly feature. Gamma Squad is committed to giving a voice and credit to the cosplay community. Each week there will be a spotlight on our favorite costumes and a monthly cosplay contest in which we’d love for cosplayers to participate.
Each month we’ll be picking a theme 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:

  • July: The Avengers
  • August: The Walking Dead
  • September: The DC Reboot
  • We hope these themes will inspire all cosplayers! But time now for another selection of what we think is the best of comics cosplay!

    Harley Quinn is hugely popular amongst cosplayers, but San’s almost flawless with her depiction.

    These two cosplayers prove why, when The Kingpin tells you to jump, you ask “How high?”

    Another popular character to cosplay and another flawless depiction.

    Showing that having a blast in inspired costumes isn’t restricted to female cosplayers, these guys really get into character too.

    This Poison Ivy cosplayer really uses her environment to good advantage in this fantastic shot.

    Vampires shouldn’t really photograph, but thankfully TheNinjaBat does, so we can all check out her impressive cosplay of the befanged version of the X-men character.

    Riddle me this: Which cosplayer deserves applause for his costume of the most dapper of Batman’s villains?

    Great attention to detail these costumes of these two Yellow Lanterns. They make quite an eye catching pair.

    Much kudos to this cosplayer for having the disco balls to put his own stamp on this cosplay of the X-men’s disco diva.
