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 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.

Do you have a stellar cosplay that you would like to submit for Best Cosplay Ever (This Week)? If so, please submit your cosplay photos HERE (or email fashiontipsfromcomicstrips[at]gmail[dot]com with the subject line "Best Cosplay Ever"). Don't forget to include cosplayer and photographer credit and links.
