Quick post showing some recent Blackest Night themed cosplay fun:
From the DCU Source blog:
One of the things I love about cosplay, or fancy dress as we used to call it in England, is that all shapes, sizes and colours can be whoever they want - you aren't restricted to characters who resemble you in body type. You're successful so long as the costume looks good, well made and authentic.
From Scans Daily:
From this Flicker photostream:
I like the Black Lantern Martian Manhunter a lot. I also like the Power Girl - but note how she's wearing either a corset or a basque, and note the shape of her breasts. Although it is possible to look your ideal cominc superheroine, it kinda comes at a price. No one is gonna fight crime in a corset and breasts aren't unnaturally floaty! Oftentimes I wish artists would pay more attention to cosplay and draw based on what we the fans come up with and look like.
