Once again it's time for Gamma Squad's Friday cosplay feature, spotlighting the best comic book 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.
Next week we'll be featuring cosplay relating to our current theme: Spider-man and Friends. So, if you'd like to see your work featured, this is your last chance to submit!
But in the meantime, let's continue with this week's selection.
Power Girl Triumphant at Dragon*Con 2011. Power Girl cosplay by Luna Selene.
A memorable group cosplay, and it's good to see some of the fun that cosplayers have at cons coming across in the shoot.
A classic 80s styled Sabretooth was always going to be hard to pull off without looking cheesy, but respect to this cosplayer for making the attempt to do so and getting every detail spot on.
An impressive take on Raven, apparently inspired by the Teen Titans cartoon. Some beautiful costumery.
A great looking Namor costume, made even better by a bit of imperious attitude.
It's always a pleasure to see a more obscure character given some love, such as this superb take on Jesse Quick. Although we do wonder how effectively she can run in those heels.
A nice use of props elevates this Jennifer Walters cosplay even higher in our eyes.
In addition to giving credit for an amazing Mr. Freeze costume, we have to also applaud Paul for both shaving his head for the costume and suffering oxygen deprivation while wearing the helmet. Now that's dedication!

Model and designer Marie-Claude is also a kick-ass cosplayer and a memorable sight at cons. With costumes like this, it's small wonder.
A favoritism is showing through here, as the author of this feature is a fan of the Booster! But still, we think this costume deserves to be featured.
