It’s the eternal battle: Marvel versus DC. Regardless of your preference, you have to admit that both Marvel and DC have some incredibly awesome characters with costumes perfect for cosplayers. One of my favorite trends in the cosplay universe is watching cosplayers take well-loved characters and re-imagine them in different genders. We recently featured some awesome gender-bent cosplay from the Marvel universe, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t also feature some fantastic gender bent cosplay from the DC universe.
Of course the DC universe has a few more characters with male and female counterparts like Superman and Supergirl, Batman and Batwoman (and Batgirl), so it can take an extra dose of creativity when crafting a solid, gender-swapped cosplay–which these cosplayers most definitely have. From Harley to Batman, Bane to the Flash, this gallery has all the amazing gender-swapped cosplay you could want.
What are some of your favorite DC characters? Have you done a gender-swapped cosplay based on a DC character, or seen an awesome gender-swapped cosplay that you love? What is a lesser-represented character you’d love to see more cosplayers attempt from the DC universe? Tell me all about it in the comments!
