A Compendium of Cool Comics Cosplay: Spider-man and Friends (Week 2)

12.30.11 6 years ago

It’s time for Gamma Squad’s Friday cosplay feature, spotlighting the best comic book related costuming from the cosplay community.  We’re again 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.

This week, we’re continuing with our special Spider-man theme, showing the very best from your friendly neighborhood cosplayers from across the web, submitted to our Flickr group or by our friends at The Superhero Costuming Forum.

So, without further ado, let’s continue with this week’s selection.

It’s always impressive how quickly cosplayers can react to comic events and produce new costumes. And this take on the new Ultimate Spider-man is no exception.

Acres of spandex aren’t always required when cosplaying and here’s a fun and inventive twist on creating a costume out of street clothes, but still being instantly recognizable.

Some people might prefer to forget the 90s Clone Saga, but not this cosplayer, who hits a high note with this Ben Reilly costume.
