BEST COSPLAY EVER (THIS WEEK): SAVAGE LAND ROGUE, QUICKSILVER, FROZEN, BARBARELLA AND MORE
Compiled 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 the Superhero 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.

SEE THIS WEEK’S COSPLAY AT COMICS ALLIANCE

Check it out! After watching his progression pics, I loved seeing how Mark’s Thor turned out. Also, really smart Frozen cosplay, and I’m pretty much a fan of everything that Ms. Mars does (Barbarreeelllaaaa). Plus, really great shadows and highlights on Moonknight…and Marvel kinda wins this article. Oh, I’m in here too. Thanks Comics Alliance!

I friggen lost my mind when Kelly Sue DeConnick showed up at the Marvel shoot at DragonCon. Contagious Costuming caught my uncontrollable fangirling. I am not ashamed.

Marvel Universe Cosplay
CAROL CORPS EDITION

AAAAAHHHH! Look at all of us! :D This was for sure one of my absolute favorite DragonCon moments. So much Carol Corps love. I adore times when a group of the same character gets together, and rather than be catty over who might be ‘wearing it better’, there’s just a genuine appreciation for one another and the character. I wasn’t the only one who went YAAAAY when Allen announced that Kelly Sue made it to the Marvel shoot…and then she hugged me. It made fainting after the shoot due to heat exhaustion kinda worth it, hah!

I’m with my sparkle fists, to the right of Kelly Sue, next to my friend msjayjustice.

A fun photoshoot I did at Hartford Comic Con with ECHO Endless (Red She-Hulk) and Future Photography by M3.

I call this ‘Stranger Danger’…or…’Spider-Woman better get the heck out of there cause she’s gonna be paste on the sidewalk in a minute’.

A picture is missing of ECHO swinging her huge sword at me and me Matrixing out of the way. She started the fight, I swear!

This was the first thing I thought of when I saw his poor face. Hang in there, Barton.

AVENGERS NOW: A BLACK CAPTAIN AMERICA, A FEMALE THOR, A SUPERIOR IRON MAN, AND WHAT IT MEANS FOR MARVEL AND DIVERSITY
By Andrew Wheeler
On Tuesday morning Whoopi Goldberg and the hosts of The View announced that Marvel will relaunch Thor this October with a female ‘worthy’ brandishing the hammer. Marvel followed that announcement with another high profile switcheroo on Wednesday night as Entertainment Weekly revealed a new-ish and possibly superior Iron Man, and comedian Stephen Colbert joined Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada to announce on The Colbert Report that a new guy is also going to take up Captain America’s shield.
That in itself isn’t much of a surprise — original Cap Steve Rogers has passed on his mantle a few times before before yanking it back. After spending some time in Dimension Z and whatnot, he’s now too old to Avenge from the front lines. The big reveal is that the new Captain America will be Sam Wilson, the African-American superhero currently known as Falcon.
It’s not hard to guess at Marvel’s intentions here. By announcing a female Thor and a black Captain America as a swift one-two punch, the publisher accomplishes two things. First, it shakes up its universe in a way that’s sure to garner attention — as indeed it has. Second, it makes a mission statement.
To the first point; the whole world knows Marvel’s Avengers characters now. That could be a millstone around the publisher’s neck if Marvel put the need to reflect the movies ahead of a need to tell its own stories. Marvel has certainly tried to configure Avengers comics around the on-screen characters, but to no particular success with respect to sales (certainly nothing to indicate that the Avengers are the most popular movie characters in America).
Replacing at least two of its Avengers big three — Thor, Captain America, and Iron Man — suggests Marvel’s commitment to telling its own stories, albeit in a grandstanding, headline-grabbing way. A woman taking the name and role of a male Norse god? A black man representing all of America? These are moves that upset the right people, and that guarantees attention.
Which leads in to the second point. These changes suggest an agenda. I’d call it progressive agenda, but it’s not. Putting women and people of color in key positions isn’t progressive, it’s just evidence that superhero comics are slowly catching up to the present day. It just happens that there’s a strong regressive agenda in our culture that’s resistant to that kind of change.
Marvel’s only motive here may be to stir up controversy and hope it translates to sales, but I think there’s enough evidence in the publisher’s support for books like Ms. Marvel, Captain Marvel, and Mighty Avengers, that the publisher is sincere in its efforts to reach out to audiences that traditionally haven’t been well-served by superhero comics. There’s always more work to be done, but Marvel’s output feels more inclusive with every passing quarter.

This article brings up some great points. It makes me outright happy that a company I love and value is taking these motions, listening to their fans, and balancing the representation. I just hope they stick with it.
