Best Cosplay Ever (This Week) – 05.21.12
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 community of costuming that exists today and cosplay communities such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. In honor of the many fans who've displayed excellence in the mastery of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), a weekly collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we've discovered and assembled into our own super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.

Editor's note: For 50 weeks our modest Best Cosplay curator has resisted our wishes to include her own excellent work in this feature. I think you'll agree that excluding the following image was just not an option, so I snuck it in. Let's see if she notices. - Khouri
