I've been looking at a lot of cosplay over the last few weeks, and what never ceases to amaze me is the sheer love, drive and talent that goes into creating the perfect cosplay.
Like these 10 brilliant cosplays. All perfect because they capture a certain nuance of the character, mix that up with love and ingenious costume design and you have a recipe for a brilliant homage.
Come and have a look:

I really like this one, the costumes are terrific! Such vibrant colors.
3. Martian Manhunter
This is epic! Loving the costume and the use of prosthetics.
4. Batgirl Begins
Cosplayer - Maribel Nelson
I like this costume because it's simple and utilizes everyday things. This would be my first suit if I was a superhero. And female.

This is so cool! The cowl, wings and emblem are absolutely epic.
What DC Comics cosplay wouldn't be complete without a visit from Oliver Queen? This is a great cos!

Hal Jordon and John Stewart combine to thrilling effect in this brilliant cosplay. I wonder where they're off to?
8. Wonder Woman Ready for Battle

I've never seen Wonder Woman looking so badass! She truly is "ready for battle."
Cosplayer - Carlos Blackman
That's all body paint. Absolutely unreal, this is incredible work.
