Cosplayer Northern Belle nails this unique crossover of Rogue from X-Men and Thing from Fantastic Four. For the 2014 Fax Expo, her inspired costume design was realized with the help of fantastic body paint by ArtisticCurves.
Belle tells GeekxGirls.com,
“Rogue has always been one of my favourite characters, not only for my name sake, but for the possibilities of “What if?”. What if Rogue held on to Ben Grimm too long, putting him in a coma like state? Not only would he be incapacitated, but all his powers and memories would now reside within Rogue. Both Rogue and The Thing have more emotional tendencies, feeling both cursed and gifted in the same go. As a result, I believe in this ‘what if’ scenario Rogue would feel obligated to step back from the X-Men and fulfill the void she created on the Fantastic 4 team. Furthermore as homage (and as a lovely little pun) she could identify as The Rogue Thing.”
