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.

Looking at the cover for the upcoming Red Hood and the Outlaws #2, announced recently on The Source, I noticed something pretty unusual for superhero comics, which tends to reserve its bizarre sexualization for women: what appears to be a very, very clear outline of the Red Hood's genitalia. Aside from the spandex logistics, which would basically require a men's version of boobsocks, this is notably one of the first times I've ever seen a male character's sexual cha
