25 epic cosplayers from San Diego Comic-Con 2018

25 of 26


This is just beautiful. There is no other way to describe this cosplay. Intricate and one of the coolest Mystiques out there, this cosplayer decided to create Raven mid-transition. A unique look at the powers that Mystique holds, it is a style that many of us wish we could bring to life.

She’s one of the most interesting characters in the entire Marvel universe. Struggling to find herself and accept who she is, Raven is one of the mutants that you feel for even when she has to choose between her brother and Erik.

Raven doesn’t want to be considered a monster but she also doesn’t want to hide who she truly is. That’s what makes this cosplay so touching. She is someone who constantly has to hide behind what is ‘normal’ and this shows the transition from her ‘normal’ look to her reality.

And to be honest, her reality is beautiful — something that Erik teaches her. Raven is powerful and strong and this cosplayer understands the two sides that exist within her character. Her struggles and her acceptance of herself are some of the qualities we love most about Raven and this is a beautiful ode to the character!
