DC World – Raven

Raven is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character first appeared in a special insert in DC Comics Presents #26 (October 1980), and was created by writer Marv Wolfman and artist George Pérez. The daughter of a demon father (Trigon) and human mother (Arella), Raven is an empath who can teleport and control her “soul-self“, which can fight physically, as well as act as Raven’s eyes and ears away from her physical body. She is a prominent member of the superhero team Teen Titans. The character also goes by the alias Rachel Roth as a false civilian name.Q

I first fell in love with Raven while watching Teen Titans years ago. The sadness within her soul knowing what is to come echoes forward into her dark yet kind persona.

Harley Quinn Cosplay

A siren from the DC Comics, based this character first made her debut back in 1992, when creators Paul Dini and Bruce Timm decided that it was too bizarre for the Joker himself to jump out of a pop out cake. He ended up doing anyways, but not before they had made a female sidekick/love interest. The inspiration for her costume came from Dinn’s college friend Arleen Sorkin, who performed a dream sequence wearing a jester costume in Days of Our Lives.  Because of their history, Dinn easily incorporated aspects of her personality into the character. Quinn was also inspired by a mutual female friend’s “stormy but nonviolent relationship”, according to Timm.

A former psychiatrist falling in love with the thing she was trying to cure – utter madness. This character gives us insight into a twisted side of human nature, and shows us how easy it is to slip into this tunnel of madness.

Cosplayer Group

*This group is for anyone interested in creating/wearing RWBY cosplay, and to arrange events while in costume!!! If this is you, please join and invite anyone you know who has cosplayed or will be cosplaying any character from RWBY!!!*

Cosplay doesn’t have to be expensive –

You just have to be willing to put a bit more of yourself into it, and be willing to network to those around you who have same passion and desire to see this outfit shine. Most of my outfits are handcrafted, or pieced together with old clothing articles and repurposed household items. Example: currently I am saving all my can lids to someday build a dalek replica, and in another box, I have collected random objects to build a machine that goes ‘ding’.

On one last note, always remember to test your costume by walking, sitting, crouching, standing, (and especially in ladies costumes, to ensure no slippages) raise arms above head. Do this for at least an hour before deciding it’s show worthy. Then you can run around being your favorite character to your hearts content. 🙂

Here’s a video detailing a few other common things people seem to get wrong in regards to cosplay:
