Welcome to Gamma Squad's regular Friday comic book cosplay feature, spotlighting the best superhero (and villain) related costuming from the cosplay community. We're casting the spotlight onto those cosplayers who we think deserve special recognition for coming up with the best costumes, whatever the budget, and the photographers who capture them for posterity.
Gamma Squad is committed to giving a voice to the cosplay community that thrives in groups like TheSuperheroCostumingForum.com. Each week we spotlight our favorite costumes and each month we host a cosplay contest. We’ll be picking a theme for each month and inviting cosplayers, costumers and photographers to submit related pictures of their work to our Flickr group to be considered. We’ll then pick our top choices and post them on Gamma Squad for the adoration of all.
The theme for the upcoming month is:
- Spider-man and Friends
But in the meantime, let's continue with this week's selection.
A classic X-men costume is brought to life by this accomplished cosplayer.
Always a pleasure to see some less high profile characters getting some love, and this Ravager cosplayer's obviously gone to considerable effort with her costume.
Wanda Maximoff's always a favorite for cosplayers - and with costumery of this quality, with us as well.
It's always great to see a cosplayer take on a challenge and bringing Hank Henshaw to life is certainly that. The facemask and gauntlets are definitely a highlight of this costume.
Emma Frost's gaining popularity amongst cosplayers in recent years, so it's great to see this take on her which goes beyond simply raiding the lingerie department and attempts to capture the comic look.
A trio of Gotham City Sirens in this shot. And a trio of fantastic costumes. Virtual flawless even?
Another challenging costume and Iron Man's taken back to his comic roots in this take on his 80s Silver Centurion armor. Incredible work.
Beautilation's a newcomer to the cosplay scene and with a debut like this, cosplaying the She-Devil with a Sword, she's definitely set a high standard.
Deadpool meets hi... er, her nemesis in this shot from Comikaze. Nice to see some fan favorites getting some love.
