Best Cosplay Ever - Superman: Red Son, X-Men, Transformers & More
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 theSuperhero 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.

A couple of cute comic bodysuits from Forever 21:

I just purchased the X-Men bodysuit for myself, because holy shit, look at that marvelous print.

Styling Suggestion: I have a tendency to coordinate bodysuits with high-waisted mini skirts and solid tights, but I think that these bodysuits could look really cute with a solid peplum skirt or a matching pair of high-waisted shorts.

Marvel Girl & Rule 63 Cyclops, cosplayed by Ali Kay & Betty Felon

So I just realized that I never posted these from San Diego Comic Con (oops), but anyway, here’s that time when we crossed over to the Marvel side. I redesigned Scott Summers’ digs into a colorblock dress, modified a pair of sunglasses for my visor, whipped up the X-symbol belts, and made AK’s Marvel Girl mask; meanwhile, AK created her Marvel Girl dress from scratch. Our gloves, boots, and wigs were acquired from Dorothy’s Boutique and eBay.

As much as we loved running around as Bats earlier during the convention, it was actually quite nice trading in our dark capes for something a little more mutant.

Cyclops Sunglasses, by Eyepster.
Beating the heat this weekend in my Cyclops sunglasses that I purchased on Fab. What they lack in optic blast protection, they definitely make up for in UV protection.

Currently on sale at Fab: Comic sunglasses, by Eyepster, $12.99 each.

I spy Cyclops!

These quirky, novelty sunglasses by Eyepster are the perfect accessories for those of us who want to read comics in the Summer sun (though I can’t guarantee their ability to restrain optic blasts). These specs are currently 50% off until this Thursday (May 17) - be sure to head over to Fab ASAP to grab a pair for yourself!

Hipster Cyclops & Hipster Phoenix, by Joel Carroll[Inspired by Nate Bellgarde’s recent X-Hipsters!]
Okay, I kind of really dig these a lot, specifically:
the X-Men zipper pulls
Scott’s black x yellow striped top
Jean’s yellow cat-eyed glasses, in place of her mask
double belts
yellow matching funky, chunky kicks
Also, I really love how Scott’s visor works into this redesign quite impeccably.
