Captain Boomerang from The Suicide Squad

Nobody makes it onto the suicide squad without their fair share of problems. For Captain Boomerang – also known as George Harkness (and played by Jai Courtney) – those problems stem from his lack of concern when it comes to beating down, or even killing, anyone who gets between him and what he wants. Unfortunately what he usually wants is the property of other people. He is, after all, an “asset relocation specialist” and he quite enjoys the life of the thief.

Captain Boomerang’s approach to life probably isn’t the best thing to emulate, but his style definitely makes for a great cosplay. Jeans, a blue Henley, a blue sports jacket, and a long fur-lined coat make up the majority of his outfit. Black boots wrapped in duct tape finishes off the look, though actually wrapping boots in duct tape can leave some pretty nasty residue on the boots. Pomade can give your hair a similarly spiky, wild look. And, of course, you need the boomerang.

Renee Montoya from Birds of Prey

Renee Montoya (Rosie Perez) is a character in Birds of Prey. She quits the Gotham City Police Department to take down Roman Sionis, aka Black Mask. Mutual interests lead to an alliance with Harley Quinn, Black Canary, and Huntress.┬áRenee doesn’t care if anyone’s in her corner — she’ll pursue justice until the work is done. We included her graphic t-shirt for a more comedic cosplay.

Beast Boy

Beast Boy is a character from the DC Comics. His real name is Garfield Logan but he’s also used the alias Changeling. Beast Boy is a shapeshifter who can transform into any animal. He has a playful personality and a not so secret crush on Raven. While he currently stars in Cartoon Network’s Teen Titans with a purple and black suit, this is his original comic design. This version requires a bit crafting, but you don’t need to be a superhero to do it! Cut the sides and half the width of the arms off the white sports shirt to resemble the suit design. Then sew or hot glue it onto the red unitard. Cut a square hole in the shorts right at your belly button. You can use hair gel and holding spray to spike up the wig.

Iris West Allen from The Flash

Iris West-Allen from The Flash

Iris West-Allen (played by Candice Patton) is the lifelong love of Barry Allen. She takes on several roles over the course of the show but her drive to tell the truth and deliver justice never change. She is often the person coordinating the team – once she becomes involved – and even takes a turn as a hero in an alternate universe.

When cosplaying Iris, class is the name of the game. She is always well put-together and dresses fashionably in silk blouses and fitted slacks or flowing sundresses and matched sweaters. She wears her hair long and usually down with neatly done classic makeup. Iris also has a preference for stiletto high heels no matter whether she’s in slacks and a blouse or a dress.
