I also run @#$% Yeah, Spider-Wife!, a Mary Jane Watson tumblog.

"I was striking a few poses in my superhero costume when a young boy perched higher on a rock chimed in.
'Captain America does not have a turban and beard,’ he said. He had a child’s curious tone. No malevolence.
'Why not?' I asked him. 'I was born here. We could have a new Captain America who is Sikh or black or Hispanic.'
He thought about this. Finally, he conceded that yes, maybe a black or Hispanic Captain America would be OK.”
Cosplay is for everybody. I hope I see Captain America in a Turban at New York Comic Con this year! So cool!
Hope no one is sick of Namor pics because I am so in love with his character. I had the best time at Dragon*Con in this costume. And I heard that we’re getting a Defenders ongoing with Captain America, Bucky, the original Human Torch & Namor! Excitement!!

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.
Check out this week’s Best Cosplay Ever on ComicsAlliance!

Not just Lone Wolf and Cub, but Spider-Girl (Anya edition), Batgirl (Steph edition), American Dream and an eerily accurate Margaery Tyrell. /chinhands
