A huge part of the annual New York Comic Con convention is cosplay (costume play), with thousands decked out as superheroes, villains, video game characters, and more. And just in time for any of you who still don't know what to be this Halloween (or an idea for future costume parties or events), a gathering of Marvel's X-Men cosplayers from this year's NYCC; along with who they are dressed up as.
First up, the X-Men's man of steel, Russian mutant Colossus. He has the ability to turn his tall, dark, and handsome physique into organic steel at will. Fun fact: His Ultimate X-Men alternative version is gay
Gaining mainstream popularity with X-Men Origins: Wolverine, where he was played by hottie Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool's more mimic-able attributes include his mastery of sword and gun (a.k.a. having accessories!)
Emma Frost is always as evil as she comes off in X-Men First Class, in fact, today she is part of the X-Men team. A skilled telepath, she is also one of the more skimpily dressed mutants (this is a more clothed version of her. If she were a man, no doubt she'd be completely topless).
Karma may be less-known by non-fans of the X-Men, but she is a telepath and one of the first major lesbian characters in comics. Read more on her and the recent happenings with other gay heroes here.
Shapeshifting mutant villain/hero Mystique gives Emma Frost a run for her money on amount of clothing worn; especially her movie version from the X-Men film series.
