As a fan of Hot Topic’s faux thigh high tights, I love this version for The Nightmare Before Christmas.

As if we didn’t already love Marvel enough, all the recent cinematic universe news has Marvel front and center in our fashionably geek brains. We have a feeling many of you might also be looking for ways to display your excitement for Marvel in your style, so we assembled some everyday cosplay outfits that perfect for showing your love of their classic heroes and villains in just about any situation.
For each outfit we found dresses inspired by Marvel characters along with some heroic cosmetics and accessories to continue the theme and really capture the spirit and style of each character.
From Captain Marvel to Iron Man, after the break you can find seven Marvel-inspired everyday cosplay outfits that will make you the stylish hero (or villain) our universe needs!
Captain America wouldn’t be the same without his vibranium shield, and this dress from Living Dead captures the weapon’s technical side. The polyester and spandex blend features the schematics in vivid red, white, and blue and makes a heroic statement.
See the dress from a couple more angles after the break.
The Infinity Gauntlet is a dangerous weapon in the hands of the Marvel villain Thanos. It holds six soul gems, and when the powers of those jewels combine… well, that’s when it’s time to hold onto your butts. One cosplayer took the concept of the powerful gauntlet and turned it into a creative dress. Why wear the Infinity Gauntlet on your hand when you can cover your whole body with it? I think Thanos should adopt this look.

I have no doubt that Peter Quill’s red Star-Lord jacket from Guardians of the Galaxy will be all the rage at Halloween parties this year. It’s easy to find a jacket that resembles what he wore in the film, and all you need to add to sell the look is a walkman. If you wanted to put something a little different together though, you can’t go wrong with this lolita-style Star-Lord dress by Siren.
Though I adore the red overcoat, my favorite part of this costume design is the Awesome Mix messenger bag. I bet we’ll see a cosplayer tackle this look when convention season swings back into gear.
Etsy is a delightful place because you never know what sort of gems you’ll find there. One place to look for treasure is Seams Nostalgic. The shop specializes in vintage glamour, and they’ve managed to blend that with superheros and sci-fi.
Owned by Abi Casey, the shop has a whole line of classy circle skirts featuring heroes like Wonder Woman, Black Widow, Captain America, and more. Some of the designs are obvious, but others are subtle and can be worn to the office. These would be ideal for a ’50s superhero cosplay group. Just saying. Keep in mind the skirts are made to order and are ready to ship in 4-6 weeks.
More fabulous skirts after the break.
It’s fall, but if you’re a superheroine or supervillainess there’s still time to wear a light and comfy dress. This Wonder Woman dress is perfect for cruising around in an invisible jet on a warm day. If you’re looking for something a bit more evil, there are also Joker and Harley Quinn-themed dresses to choose from. You can check those out after the break.
Alfred Angelo’s 2015 Disney Fairy Tale Weddings collection has been unveiled, and we can finally see the 3D version of the Frozen-inspired wedding gown. We saw a sketch of the Elsa bridal gown a few weeks ago, and the actual dress looks even more lovely. The blue dress is beaded and comes with a cape that mimics Elsa’s “Let It Go” attire. From the press release:
This season Alfred Angelo will also debut the highly-anticipated gown inspired by Elsa from Disney’s Frozen. Reminiscent of Elsa’s “Snow Queen” dress, the ice-blue softly flared sheath gown has been dramatically beaded to glisten like sunlight on fresh fallen snow. The sweetheart neckline and dramatic Watteau train capture the essence of this bold and elegant character.
The Elsa design as well as other dresses inspired by Disney princesses will be available in January 2015.

Nice try, but this uniform dress from Hot Topic probably won’t go over well at Hogwarts.
Still, it’s ideal to combine with your favorite House scarf or socks. Grab a wand and you’re all set for whatever adventures await.
It’s available in sizes XS to 3X and it’s in stock now.
