With ‘Dark Phoenix’s’ release looming on the horizon, X-Men fans everywhere are waiting in anticipation for the franchise’s latest film – but one fan decided to take her love of the Mutants to the next level.
Cosplayer ‘HendoArt’ revealed her take on the X-Men’s Psylocke, the group’s telekinetic swordswoman with an ability to control and manipulate emotions, among other such powers as shadow teleportation, and more.
Hendo’s Psylocke is nothing short of spot-on, complete with the hero’s purple latex bodysuit, arm and leg wraps, and her signature pink sash, as well as a wig that looks so believable, it almost seems like she dyed her hair for the role.
That’s not all; Hendo’s cosplay photos show her channeling Psylocke’s sword skills, looking as though she could pull off some of her iconic moves in real life!
Hendo has likewise cosplayed other X-Men members in the series, most notably her take on Kitty Pryde, which comes complete with a little Lockheed resting on her shoulder.
These wouldn’t be the only heroes that Hendo has cosplayed, by far: she likewise brought her skills to the Teen Titan’s Raven, using her design from the ever-popular 2003 cartoon.
Hendo has even created a female version of the Joker, standing side by side with the Riddler, as well as a stunning costume of the Spider-Verse’s Spider-Gwen with Peter Parker.
Of course, Hendo isn’t one to limit herself to Western heroes, either – the cosplayer even created a rendition of My Hero Academia’s Mt. Lady, a project that she described as “tedious to sew.”
While Hendo’s Psylocke cosplay has garnered a lot of attention ahead of ‘Dark Phoenix’s’ release, the movie itself has been met with mixed reviews thus far, receiving a low score of 21% on Rotten Tomatoes.
While fans aren’t sure if Psylocke will make an appearance in the film (as a few of her powers were activated by the movie’s titular antagonist, Jean Grey), fans are hopeful that the femme fatale will show up – although ‘X-Men Apocalypse’ actress Olivia Munn stated that she won’t be in the upcoming blockbuster.
