Normally I'm not a fan of cosplay, but poking around I found this, and I have to say it's not bad at all!

We often hear that film-makers have to use complicated fabric patterns and rubber suits to increase the level of visual interest the costumes have on film. I cannot imagine a greater level of visual interest than that generated by the image shown above...

Give me a faithful interpretation of what's on the page. Odds are pretty good it'll be better than whatever some comics-ignorant designer cooks up for Hollywood.

I agree, there`s a fan made Wolverine Vs Predator short
on Youtube, with limited resources they made a credible
costume for Wolverine.

This literalization underlines a part of the Phoenix costume that I really think
had a notable role in Phoenix's characterization - that sash.

That sash has a lot of attitude. It's one of those fashion accessories that would
get comments at the Academy Awards pre-show for being particularly sassy.

In context, Phoenix created her own costume. She is practically omnipotent,
and the costume seems designed to announce that. To me, that sash speaks
volumes about Phoenix's self-confidence in her own power and it transitioned
as a perfect fit for Dark Phoenix too.

Steve G., that was really nice. But let's recall that, even notwithstanding colors, Phoenix and Dark Phoenix have different costumes. I just mention it because when Phoenix' outfit is drawn wrong, it makes me CRAAAZY! And not in the good way.

But I wouldn't have expected you to redesign it with a color change. And it's cool. Now, if only you could have removed the purse too... :D :D :D

Donít forget the black V that surrounds the chest emblem and rises up the neck. The emblem is also smaller on the green version.

I've seen many Phoenix cos-play costumes and this Dark Phoenix is really a
stand-out.

I have not seen a Phoenix costume that I recall with the black on the neck and
around the emblem.

I've also never seen anyone try to keep the thin black line Dave Cockrum put
down the center of Phoenix's torso.

That detail disappeared when her costume changed for Dark Phoenix.

DANG! Now THAT'S some cosplay. Beautiful work, Steve!

Yes, I noticed the purse. Well, I'm very old... I take in a lot of detail... sheesh.

Good photoshop skills. The green costume looks even better than the Dark Phoenix one. Dark Phoenix needs a bit of flame, maybe some stars and exploding planets :)

I could be wrong but I think maybe she's gotten an off-the-rack costume made in China, I remember seeing a brown and gold one listed on ebay over and over while looking for a green t-shirt, but possibly there are some alterations... then again if you have the frame for it maybe you don't need to?

I always thought it'd be funny to see one of those '70s Hostess Twinkies/Fruit Pie/Ding Dong ad comics with Phoenix not eating that sun of the asparagus people thanks to a Galactus-sized snack cake. Idea free here to anyone wants to try! :^D

Let me say two things here.  First, I think this girl looks awesome with what she did.  Second, I am not the photo shop master that Steve is.  But, Dark Phoenix always had those colors that don't exist in reality as JB has put it before.  So, I tried my hand at adding some black to the picture
