A Compendium of Cool Comics Cosplay: August 3rd

It’s time once again for our Friday comic book cosplay feature, casting the spotlight on the best comics related costumery from the cosplay community.  We’re focusing on 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 featuring some awesome cosplay of Sinestro, Mercury, The Flash, Elektra, Booster Gold, Batgirl, Doctor Strange, Wonder Woman, Batman, Wolverine and Black Canary!
Gamma Squad is committed to giving a voice to the cosplay community that thrives in groups like our friends at Each week we spotlight our favorite costumes and in addition we also host a regular cosplay contest, with the results forming a special theme week. We invite cosplayers, costumers and photographers to submit pictures of their work that relates to the theme (or any cosplay in general!) 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.
Our current theme is:

  • Superhero Team-Ups!

For now, enjoy this week’s selection!
