Suicide Squad cosplay 3 of 3: S.F. Bay Area Wonder-Con

Poison Ivy is one of the most popular cosplay characters as far as DC women goes. But rarely do you see some fan of the botanist turned toxic criminal mercenary nail down the look quite so well. This one is a winning combination of of great costume design and deadly looking beauty. First appearing in Suicide Squad #33 Poison Ivy would become a reoccurring character until the end of the series. There was no love lost between Waller and Ivy. But Waller did find Ivy quite useful given her secretions that could do everything from render people unconscious to controlling their minds or just put them six feet under.

Here's something from neck of the woods! The annual Wonder-Con started in Oakland in 1987 and I went to the first 3 years of that convention as a kid. It eventually moved to the other side of the Bay in San Francisco for which I went to it on at least one occasion. Sadly however last year was the final year for the Wonder-Con in the Bay Area and it's since then moved to Anaheim in Southern California.

You all know about Deadshot of course but remember Bane had also served with the Suicide Squad and who could forget the Blackest Night story line written by Gail Simone that saw the Secret Six clash with Waller's Suicide Squad. Getting back to the deadly beauty theme we've also got Cheshire here too who I loved ever since having read the entire Villains United mini-series (also written by Simone) along with her regular appearances on Young Justice. Can't wait for whenever the new season starts I miss not getting my weekly Young Justice fix!

If you thought the cosplay ladies I featured in the last few postings were something you would be right. But what I have coming up in the next couple of days will really blow you away as far as hot comic book ladies go. I cover all my bases on this one, The Suicide Squad, Secret Six and even Checkmate. I sincerely hope any viewers of this blog of the fairer sex will not be offended.

If you didn't notice this Brightest Day Captain Boomerang photo before it's because I added it a few days after I published this posting. This is also a cosplay snap shot from the 2011 Wonder-Con in San Francisco.

  1. That is an excellent Ivy. I'm looking at the corset and trying to figure out exactly what she used to make the vines. I might have to pull in some people on this.

  2. Yeah I'm really liking the Poison Ivy cos-player as well. She's very hot, and very creative as far as putting together that outfit.

    And how cool to see a cos team of one of my favorite anti-hero teams, the Secret Six. Nice job by those guys.

    Now where's the other hotties?
