Today in America we are celebrating Independence Day, more commonly known as the 4th of July, commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. Pop culture is rife with examples of patriotic figures, especially in comic books and video games. Here are a few patriotic cosplays that I particularly enjoyed.
This incredible motorized patriot cosplay from Bioshock: Infinite is by Erri Kitten Cosplay.
This stunning Connor Kenway from Assassins Creed III is by 6silver9.
This Rosie the Riveter by zkmogeliukas epitomizes the working women of World War II.
Captain America is a popular mashup element, as seen in this Captain Spiderman by idiotengine.
He may not be cosplaying per se, but soccer super fan Mike D’Amico dressed up as Theodore Goalsevelt to help cheer on the US team at the 2014 World Cup.
In Marvel Puzzle Quest, we see what Captain America would have looked like if the shield had been taken up by Peggy Carter. Scarlett Jaye shows that she would have been more than capable of leading the way.
Reign-cosplay makes a lovely Liberty Belle.
She may not be from the United States, but Wonder Woman decks herself out in the traditional red,white, and blue, as demonstrated by C Monster Cosplay.
Some cosplayers modify a cosplay so that it fits them and their personality better, like this female Captain America by Hijabi Hooligan.
Kara Zor-El may not even be from our planet, but like her cousin Superman, Supergirl has become a hero of the USA and Earth. Cosplay by Curiousjoi.
This Iron Patriot cosplay by Iron Brothers of Topeka is the spitting image of super-powered patriotism.
Peggy Carter rocked the red, white, and blue long well World War II when she was back stateside working in the SSR. Lipstick on Your Cosplay captures the character’s grace and determination flawlessly.
I would be remiss if I didn’t share a cosplay of the man himself – Captain America, the First Avenger. Ranger Six shows the strength and determination of Steve Rogers in fantastic fashion. Photo by Kaminsky Kandids Photography.
