Rule 63 Cosplay

Rule 63: For every given male character, there is a female version of that character; conversely, for every given female character, there is a male version of that character. 

Cosplay: A portmanteau of costume and play; a subculture based on the creation of character costumes and roleplay.

Rule 63 Cosplay: The photos I end up staring at and thinking, "Oh, god. I would read the SHIT out of that comic." Christina

Scarecrow, Joker, Riddler, and Two Face
This Two Face costume is what Tommy Lee Jones should have worn. He'd look amazing in feather lashes.

Pink Ranger
I will always give it up for a Power Ranger.

(Back) Green Lantern, Flash, Black Canary, Green Arrow, Powerboy, Superwoman, Wonder Man, Vixen, Batwoman; (Front) Aquawoman, Plastic Woman
This Genderbent Justice League took the internet by storm in 2011 and they're still one of the best examples of a group cosplay done right. Hello, Powerboy.

Jughead always seemed like a better choice than Archie - you know, if you ignore the fact that he's not really attracted to anyone. Who wants to be strung along while your crush goes off and dates a bunch of impossibly pretty, impossibly rich girls? (Oh, didn't I mention? I'm a total Betty.) 

Havok, Cyclops, and Colossus
Anything that might make Cyclops bearable. And Colossus, your bodysuit is incredible. I've never seen lamè so shiny that it worked like a mirror.

Babe Sapien and HellGrrl
Blue and Red, paranormal investigators from the Civil War and Hell, respectively.

Captain America
This is Christine of the Dangerous Ladies, my favorite cosplay group on the whole entire internet. (I've been fangirling from afar for quite some time. Like, the check-to-see-what-they're-working-on-daily sort of fangirling.) Check out their tumblr for tutorials, tons of progress photos, and real talk about feminism, superhero movies, and body positivity. Now get stitchin'!
