Beast Boy might be my favorite member of the Teen Titans. He’s the clown of the group and always cracks me up. Cosplayer Elle likes the character, and her femme take on him is a great example of fun rule 63/genderbending cosplay. She did a pretty straight take on the ensemble and didn’t make it a “sexy” version. I like her approach and think she did a fantastic job with the makeup and outfit. Here’s how she put it together:
It’s made from two way stretch magenta spandex and black spandex (all left overs from other cosplays in the past) The belt and cuffs are just made from some grey fabric I had layer around (didn’t want to do silver for that anyway.) and I chose a funky looking black heel sneaker that I thought fit him well. For this convention I will need to be able to answer my phone and whatnot so I chose fingerless gloves and I’ll just paint them green like my face.
