It’s that wonderful time of year again where Black cosplayers from all around the globe celebrate and uplift one another during Black History Month. By using the hashtag #28DaysofBlackCosplay, created by Princess Mentality Cosplay, fans of multiple and intersecting genres are able to spread their appreciation and solidarity among one another during this time that celebrates the endless accomplishments and talents of Black individuals. You can follow the tag on any of your favorite social media sites, or you can check my favorites here every week. There’s so much wonderful work out there, we just have to appreciate!

Stardust Megu is such a bright and positive force in the cosplay community that her cosplaying WW is a perfect complement to her character. I love how beautiful this costume is and how lovely she is.

Who are they? Wilykit and Wilykat from Thundercats
This dynamic duo just knocks me right into nostalgia park with this fantastic duo cosplay of the adorable twins from Thundercats. I love how perfect everything looks in their super cute photoshoot. This is what I strive to be as a cosplayer!

Who are they? Lotor from Voltron: Legendary Defender
I’ve admired King Kitsu from afar for awhile now because their sheer talent at prop making and costume creating is damn near LEGENDARY. I mean, look at their Lotor. I don’t even have the words to describe how phenomenal he looks. You have to give major credit to any cosplayer who can perfect the art of body paint.

Who are they? “Holiday” Satsuki from Kill La Kill. (The “Ugly Christmas Kamui” design is credited to @alaphyies.)
Holiday versions of characters are always fun, but DeJanae’s cosplay of Satsuki blew me away. It looked so breathtaking. And I’M NOT EVEN A KILL LA KILL FAN. The colors just really pop and I love the Christmas tree garnishes on the shoulders. So cute!
