As part of Black History month, black Twitter decided to showcase its geeky and creative sides simultaneously through #28daysofblackcosplay on Twitter. 28 Days of Black Cosplay characters took the social media platform by storm, raising their scepters and shields in pride and triumph. With Black Panther shattering long-held misconceptions about the appeal of black superheroes, this hashtag obliterates any lingering doubts that Superman or an X-Man cannot be black. 28 Days of Black Cosplay photos show cosplayers decked out as characters from all across the geek landscape; from Metroid to Steven Universe to Sailor Moon, these cosplayers cover a wide range of series and look impeccable while doing so. Some cosplayers looklike they came straight from the comic series while others went for the genderbent cosplay look, all of them absolutely nailing their respective choices. Furthermore, the Black Cosplay hashtag reveals cosplayers hail from all sorts of backgrounds and that an inclusive cosplay community means everyone gets to take part in the fun.

Day 5 of #28daysofblackcosplay goes to @cutiepiesensei. I love the amount of time and effort she puts into her cosplays and this one right here was the one that got me to follow her. You should too. : #cosplay #blackcosplayer #blackgirlmagic #sailor… https://t.co/gLdAFdH7IV pic.twitter.com/bZi9Q0UX3I— Katsu Cake (@CakedaBlerd) February 5, 2018
