BEST COSPLAY EVER (THIS WEEK): HEROESCON 2014 EDITION
Compiled by Betty Felon
Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. Over the years, the cosplay community has evolved into a creative outlet for many fans to establish and showcase some impressive feats of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics at conventions. In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
The comics, sci-fi, gaming and fantasy communities’ talents for homemade disguises, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics are definitely on display this weekend at  HeroesCon, and we were there to check out the show as well as capture some of the stellar cosplay on display.

I figured since I did the first two, I should round these out by doing the third most prominent (but my least favorite) of the Dazzler outfits- pink hair+leather midriff strips (what are those).
For the final incarnation she had to go full Katy Perry/Nicki Minaj realness. 100% modern pop queen. I also tossed out the traditional mic for the pop singer hidden mic.

Someone please put Erica Henderson on a Dazzler book ASAP ☆

LITTLE GIRLS ARE BETTER AT DESIGNING SUPERHEROES THAN YOU, SAYS ALEXANDRIA LAW
By Betty Felon
In efforts to showcase the design sensibilities of young aspiring superheroes, artist Alexandria Law created Little Girls Are Better At Designing Superheroes Than You, an art project wherein superheroes are illustrated and redesigned based on superheroic costumes worn by young girls. Law’s project features submitted photos of little girls donning costumes based off of both licensed superheroes and original characters alongside illustrated interpretations of the look “in action,” providing a fresh look on heroic aesthetics. From an incredibly wearable Wonder Woman dress with killer boots to chic, simplified adjustments to Power Girl and Huntress, these little heroines manage to embody the spirit of their idols while adding inventive style and flair; a skill that many comic professionals still struggle to master.
