New York Comic Con occurred over the weekend, and while I’m sure I’ll find a great cosplay music video showing off some of the amazing costumes at the convention, I want to start by showcasing this ensemble. Robyn, a.k.a. Stormy Riot or Geek Girl Strong, dressed as Misty Knight. The character appears in the new Luke Cage series on Netflix, but she doesn’t quite look like her comic book self in the show. Robyn has her fierce ensemble and hair from the comics down.
I don’t have any making of information on this costume, but it’s too striking not to share. Plus, previous to this, I’d never seen anyone cosplay Misty.
