Seven Amazing Genderbent Cosplays For Halloween

Because genderbending is so in this year.

It's 2018, and that means it's time to jump on the genderbending train! To give you guys some idea on what characters you can cosplay as, we've created a list of some of our favourites. These costumes will make anyone at a Halloween party jealous of you.

Angela "Mercy" Ziegler

Heroes never die! But, they just might pretend to need mouth-to-mouth if this Mercy shows up. Taken at SMASH! 2017, this is hands down one of the best Mercy cosplays I've seen, regardless of gender.

Prince Zelda?

This cosplay duo are finally answering the age-old question, "What if Zelda was a guy?"

Sadly we couldn't find the source of this cosplay, but it's one of my favourite genderbent cosplay pairings.

Prince Peach and Daisy

With Bowsette now a "thing" why can't we have a twinky Prince Peach and Daisy?

This one was taken by the amazing cosplay photographer Victor Gamez.

Star-Lord and Gamora

Who doesn't love a badass female hero along with their angsty emo-twink alien pal?

Another amazing couples cosplay here, this time from the amazing Aicosu duo.


Everybody loves Roadhog, (along with his boyfriend Junkrat. But what if Roadhog were a woman, and Junkrat was not gay (which he clearly is)?

Ready to go Whole Hog! This photo was taken by Rich and Strange Photography, featuring cosplay by Bellexi.


Misty is a beefcake in a crop top and booty shorts, and we are living for it. Get yourself a yellow tank top and shorts to recreate this cosplay - and become the belle of the ball for any costume party you may be going to this month. Cosplay by Zeek.

Cruella de Ville

And finally, this cosplay by Hakudoushi Cosplay represents everything we love about the cosplaying scene. Elegance and grace, manly charm and feminine beauty - all rolled into one.

The fur coat, cigarette holder, the hair... It all comes together to make a perfect Cruella de Ville.

We hope you enjoyed our walk through some of the wonderful genderbent cosplay we've seen - but there's so much more out there! What are some of your favourites? We'd love to hear from you!

Update: This article has been updated to make a correction. The Hakudoushi "Cruella" cosplay was originally misattributed to Nipah.
