Who are they?

Lady Riju from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

I’ve never played a Zelda game (a sin, I know), but even a non-believer can appreciate how brilliant all the cosplays that were inspired by BoW are. Sola Heika looks so regal and queen-like in this picture!

Who are they?

Iron Man from The Avengers

love how original this design is! The armor work looks so intense. I’d definitely want Iron Mermaid on my side of any battle.

Who are they?

Ivy Valentine from Soul Calibur II (alternative outfit)

Couldn’t let #28DaysOfBlackCosplay pass me by without getting in on the fun! Here’s a #tbt to the time I cosplayed Ivy (Soul Calibur II alt outfit) at ConBravo a couple of years ago. . Had a love-hate relationship with this one over the 3-4 years(!) it took to complete….however, looking back I probably learned more from this cosplay than any other one I've done – I still consider that separating whip-sword one of my proudest cosplay achievements XD . .

I love how powerful this image is. The colors of this outfit are so eye-catching and the snake sword looks badass. Not to mention that piercing gaze!!

Who are they?

‘Celtic’ Predator from the Predator series

You want to see something knock your socks off? Check out EWS’s Instagram. Just browse through it. His work in prop building is OUTSTANDING. All his creations look so beautiful and sleek, fit for a hero. I love their work on this Predator outfit because it looks ancient, formidable, and intricate.

Who are they?

‘Holiday’ Starfire from Teen Titans

Tiburon looks so gorgeous here as the fiery alien Starfire. I’m over the moon about everything about this picture; from the Christmas tree in the background to the attention-grabbing red hair, and the stunning cosplayer!
