Our Look At 2015’s Best Cosplay Kicks Off With Poison Ivy And More

Poison Ivy photographed by Anna Fischer.

Being that it’s nearing the end of the year, we’re wrapping things up, as we did last Christmas, with a look back on our personal favorites from 2015. Below you’ll find 25 highlights chosen from 2015’s cosplay features, including Cosplay of the Week and themed features like our many Halloween costume round-ups, our four galleries of favorites from San Diego Comic-Con, our May the Fourth galleries, and our nine-part Harley Quinn Month blowout. A special honorable mention goes to this guy, who really has to be seen in context to fully appreciate.

Are you a cosplayer or photographer who would like to be featured on Gamma Squad? Upload your photos to our Flickr group to be considered.
