Another game was released a couple of years ago, Batman: Arkham Knights did well in terms of ratings. Inspired from one of the best superheroes, this game is also about the infamous crime city, Gotham.

Make way for the female superheroes! 

Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel are a couple of names making their way around the animated world’s highly male-dominated side. In the last few years, the names of female superheroes have gained fame and numbers in both Marvel and DC comics more evidently. 

At first, no one really paid attention to the gender disparity in the comic worlds. But as time passed, people (mostly women) realized they were being deprived of the iconic characters only present in the print media. To enjoy the same creativity in their cosplays and get the representation the female superheroes rightfully deserve, female sides worked hard. 

In a nutshell, now that there are names like Storm, Batgirl, and Black Widow on the horizon, the comics’ future looks brighter than ever. 

Captain Marvel’s red and blue costume is a delight for both fashion lovers and costume enthusiasts. It captures the confidence and stance of the superhuman perfectly. Apart from this piece, there are much other apparel that can be utilized in streetwear. Real-life superhero movies are brimming with the exciting range of cropped, snug, and fit jackets. 

Justice League or Avengers? 

The debate between the two superhero groups is not going to end anytime soon. The only way you can wrap your head around the fact that they both exist and both have unnatural powers is to appreciate what they all can do. Whether it is Batman, Superman, Aquaman or Black Widow, Iron Man, Captain America, the fandoms are crazy for all! 

You can place your bets on any character from the two high powered groups and lose it because no one can ever choose one and leave the other. There are too many perks and characteristics in both the team to ignore one completely.  

From Superman and Captain America’s enigmatic outfits to Wonder Woman and Black Widows sharp get-ups, the variety you find in this crowd is truly mind-blowing. Almost half-decade has passed since these teams made a big name for themselves and won every front! 

From there on, the spiral has only been upwards, and the progress they have made is outstanding. To exhibit these characters in a comic con would mean attracting the majority of the audience to yourself!

Pioneers of Anime!

A little more than three decades ago, Katsuhiro Otomo’s brainchild in the form of the manga was doing better than any other series. At that time, he had no idea that mind-blowing adaptation would pave the way for a completely new entertainment medium. The Akira Jackets that we have been dying to get our hands on, only found fame once he released his classic. 

Since then, the Neo-Tokyo he imagined for this generation and the attire Kaneda wore, all have become a part of the real life. Otomo’s creation made Anime available for the whole world. Before that, only manga existed. Japan’s most loved medium of entertainment, Anime are known as Japanimation for the same reason! 

Whether you choose a classic or a modern cosplay inspiration, it all comes down to authenticity. If your attire differs from the original one, the charm fades away automatically. Make sure that, along with the authenticity, you capture the essence of the character in the truest means!
