BEST COSPLAY EVER (THIS WEEK): 06.02.14
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.

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 ☆

SHOES OF PREY: COMICS ALLIANCE DESIGNS SUPERHERO FOOTWEAR BASED ON WONDER WOMAN, CAPTAIN MARVEL, BATWOMAN AND MORE
By Betty Felon
Fashion brand Shoes of Prey used its customizable design website to style some superhero-inspired heels and flats as examples of footwear that customers can tweak and purchase for themselves with the Shoes of Prey 3D Designer, which gives the wearer selection of colors, materials, and alter various detailing parameters such as heel height, toe and heel detailing.. Each pair of shoes is handmade to fit the customer’s chosen aesthetics and run at least $100 per pair.
As a fan of both Shoes of Prey and comics, customer Mandy Kerr designed some heels and flats inspired by Batman, Iron Man, and more (seen in the grahguc below). Inspired by Kerr’s excellent Robin-inspired oxfords, I utilized the Shoes of Prey 3D Designer to create a few of my own shoe designs, including flats and platformed wedges inspired by Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel, Batwoman, and more.
