Best Cosplay Ever (This Week) - 04.16.13
By Bethany Fong
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. In honor of the many fans who’ve displayed excellence in the mastery of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics, 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.

Fashion of New York Comic Con 2012: Power Girl (worn by Paigey)

Stellar artist and overall babe, Paige Pumphrey got the masses of New York Comic Con swooning last week in her gorgeous Marilyn Monroe x Power Girl ensemble! From her rockabilly redesigns of various X-Men to battling conventions in a retro Wonder Woman-inspired getup, Paigey’s ability for merging pin-up fashion and comics is unmatched. For her Power Girl ensemble, she re-purposed her wedding dress (!) and coordinated it with a Marilyn-esque bob and matching accessories in red and blue. My favorite detail of her entire look is how she translated Power Girl’s gold shoulder armor into big gold sweater clips. Brilliant!

Aaaand last one before lunch break time. Mod peej. I’d like to redraw this style for a few other characters…

The ever-stellar Kate redesigned Power Girl’s outfit as a mod ensemble for a private commission, and now I feel compelled to make/recreate this outfit ASAP. Peej’s signature boob window translates impeccably as a keyhole mini dress, while the color-blocking on the dress bluntly resembles the sash of her red cape and her bold blue belt. Coordinate with chunky accessories and Peej’s blue knee-high boots and you’re good to go-go! All you need to complete your outfit is Terra in a black and white color-blocked shift dress :)
On a side note, I really hope that Kate whips up some more mod superhero redesigns in the near future - mod fashion and superhero costumes are seriously my two favorite things ever*.

*EVER
