Best Cosplay Ever (This Week) - 03.05.12
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 community of costuming that exists today and cosplay communities 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), a weekly collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into our own super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
Check out this week’s round-up of the Best Cosplay Ever on ComicsAlliance, featuring Mr. Freeze, Donna Troy, Ashlotte, Doctor Doom (above), and more!

Cosplay Photo Highlights From New York Comic Con 2011 [link]
As you know from our previous roundups of convention cosplay from San Diego, Dragon*Con and of course our weekly Best Cosplay Ever feature,   we are big fans of cosplay. The comics, sci-fi, gaming and fantasy   communities’ talents for homemade disguises, craftsmanship, and   sartorial superheroics were definitely on display last weekend at New York Comic Con,   and you’d better believe ComicsAlliance was there to take in as much  as  we could. Check out some exceptional examples of  superheroic  cosplaying talent that we spotted in New York on ComicsAlliance!
How many fellow Tumblrers can you guys spot? :)

I like drawing mod superheroes. I really like redesigning costumes! I really really like Batwoman.

Somehow this slipped under my radar, but Kate created this amazing mod redesign of Kate Kane/Batwoman a couple weeks ago. The muted turquoise accents both complement and refresh the dominance of black and red in this outfit, without overwhelming Kate Kane’s signature Bat-look. I love how the Bat-symbol is incorporated into this dress, which is a bit reminiscent of the Bat-shirt in Annie Wu’s punk redesign of the JLA.
And since I already own red Bat-earrangs, I think that I’m destined to make this dress, to own and wear forever.
Be sure to check out Kate’s mod redesign of Power Girl! :)

Batwoman swimsuit, designed by GillyPerkyGoth.
The high neckline of red fishnet/mesh material and the high cut bottoms make this swimsuit a more modern, fashionable alternative to the Batgirl swimsuit design.

Sartorialist Meets Superhero: I’ve got Kate Kane on my mind, apparently, because I was browsing the Sartorialist the other day and came across this outfit. My first thought was something along the lines of, “great shoes, but who could pull those off —”
I’m thinking I’ll do a series of these, so stay tuned!
This one’s for my bro, chiroptophobia, for reminding me of being sixteen and falling in love with superheroes.

So Yasmin created a series of superhero redesigns appropriately titled Sartorialist Meets Superhero, and I’m absolutely in love. Since I already paid homage to the Batwoman of Earth-2 earlier today, I figured that I’d share one of my favorite redesigns of the modern Batwoman, Kate Kane.
I love how the ratio of red to black in Batwoman’s current costume is also applied to this outfit, allowing just enough red accents to pop against the black. Kate’s fire-red bob looks impeccable with the cloche hat and suit, creating an overall chic look and a sleek silhouette. The spectator oxfords are simply the shoes of my dreams: not only are they red, but they feature a clever reinterpretation of the scalloped Bat-detailing (usually seen on the top of Batwoman’s red boots) on the tips of the shoes.
The only thing that would make those shoes absolutely perfect, would be the inclusion of Bat-soles:
