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.

Where ‘Final Fantasy’ and Comics Collide

Last week saw the release of "Final Fantasy XIII" in North America, the latest entry in the epic RPG series from video game maker Square-Enix. At this point I'm required to make a witty remark concerning how strange it is that a series with the word "Final" in its title is releasing its thirteenth game (not counting numerous other tie-ins)
