The cosplay community is rich and exciting, and one of the coolest trends among cosplayers is genderbending different cosplays. The idea for genderbending in cosplay comes from a lot of different places–I recently argued that one of those places game from gaming–but regardless of where the idea originated, genderbending in cosplay has opened the door for many more cosplayers to portray a character they love. Sometimes the film and TV world isn’t terribly diverse, but thankfully the cosplay community has plenty of room for diversity!
You could spend hours looking at all of the amazing cosplayers out there with their fabulous genderbent cosplays–trust me. But to save you some time, I’ve gone and explored the corners of the interwebz and compiled a quick gallery of some of my favorite genderbent cosplays for your perusal. Enjoy, and tell me some of your favorites in the comments!
