THE WORLD'S MOST POPULAR CHARACTERS TO COSPLAY

Cosplay - CatwomanNot so long ago, I asked three of my favorite cosplayers, 'what character from the DC Universe do you prefer to dress up as?', and in turn, they told me to 'take a run and jump into the nearest river during monsoon season'. Ha! Only joking, folks, as they were all more than willing to answer my question by telling me…





Charlie Rocket: My favorite DC character to cosplay is Catwoman, a.k.a. Selina Kyle, because I love a good anti-hero and her costume gives me an excuse to look and feel sexy! Well, I'm a mom of 2 boys, and more often than not, I'm wearing sweatpants and playing around with them. So it's nice to feel confident and just embody a character who gives me so much control and strength.

Jenna Say What:
I'd like to pick one of the most underrated villains in the DCU, The Scarecrow, because he has a long and tragic backstory that I can relate to (filled with trauma and abuse), and he can beat everyone up, apart from The Joker.

Sonya Cactus: Well, two of my favorite characters to cosplay are The Joker and Harley Quinn because they're both crazy and charismatic, just like me. Heck, I don't even try to act mad when I dress up like them, as I have a lot of energy inside me and only need to be myself ๐Ÿคช and have some fun ๐Ÿ˜.

So, as you can see, Charlie, Jenna, and Sonya answered my question by highlighting different characters and different motivations for their individual selections. In fact, their answers were so different, that my mates over at Zavvi have decided to look into this matter further by compiling and then analyzing Instagram hashtag data so they can find out the world's most popular characters to cosplay. Here, check this out…

Harley Quinn - Cosplay
Now, according to their research, both DC and anime are firmly at the top of Zavvi's list, with eight of their characters located in the top ten. Whereas other popular franchises, such as Marvel, Star Wars, and Harry Potter, are lower down the line, as they only managed to have two of their characters near the top, namely, Spider-Man and Deadpool, who came in second and sixth place respectively. So with this in mind, we must ask, what are…


Cosplay - Popular Franchise


Batman - Cosplay
Personally speaking, I've always been a big fan of the DC Universe, and if I was brave enough to dress up as one of their characters, I would most probably dress up as the Dark Knight himself, Batman, although a nerdier version who'd overpower his enemies with trivia rather than a punch in the face. How about you, dear reader? What character from the DCU would you like to dress up as? One of these, perhaps? ๐Ÿ‘€ ๐Ÿ‘‡

In closing, I'd like to thank my three favorite cosplayers for answering my question as well as for allowing me to share their images in this article. Similarly, I would also like to thank Zavvi, too. Although, in their case, it's for allowing me to share their research (click here for their full findings).
