It’s not just for the guys! The ladies get very much involved in cosplay as well. There are a lot of heroines and villianess’ in the movies, comics, manga and anime, and books. Plus, in cosplay there is nothing that says a guy cannot go as a female character or that a woman can make a male character into a female version. Even with a certain character there are many ways that an individual can express their take on them. For example, one player decided to do Poison Ivy as a zombie and even though I don’t have a photo here, there were multiple Harley Quinn’s but very few were alike.
Plus, as you can see in some of the pictures here, the ladies really get to “show” off in some costumes which men rarely do. Although there was this one group of guys in….well. You don’t want to know!
