MOST RECENT

I like a good, positive PSA and I like hearing about people cosplaying and feeling fulfilled by a character so I’m going to try my hand at doing both here. On your left you’ll see me at my first convention, NYCC 2012, cosplaying Black Widow. On your right, that’s me at Katsucon 2018 cosplaying Black Widow. Both times I was called “Natasha,” by strangers, both times I felt beautiful, and both times I felt closer to my favorite superhero. Both times I was cosplaying. Yes, my personal costuming skills and desired results have evolved and grown, but those are feelings that belong and matter to me and me alone. It doesn’t matter what you’re wearing, if you made it or bought it, if you spent a fortune or found it in your closet; if you’re enjoying yourself and feel closer to your character and are finding a sense of community with others, that’s cosplay. There’s a lot of noise out there in the community from all different sources that will tell you what you need to be “good,” “great,” or even “the best.” You might even hear you need to look a certain way, or look like an actor, or create some kind of illusion to be a “real” cosplayer. Ideas like this couldn’t be less true, not to mention they’re toxic and can blur our vision of our own value. You’re perfect just being yourself and feeling the joy of cosplay we all deserve to feel. So to sum it up, what you’re seeing is NOT a glow-up. I had the exact same worth on the left as I do now on the right and whatever your story is, the same goes for you. Good vibes, friends. 📸: Left pic: @queenlycosplay, right pic: @faithnomoar 🖤🕷💚

Sometimes a casual chill cosplay is best. I still can’t believe people at Katsu knew who I was in this but it must have been my lucky day. And yeah I’m holding onto the wall because those boots have four inch heels and I’m a wimp 😜🖤🕸💙🕷

Happy Friday!! I have a bunch of supplies on the way to keep improving this costume for accuracy now that we have much better references but until then, @faithnomoar gave me some great shots back from Katsucon (we literally ran outside in the snow for less than five minutes and somehow got some amazing shots, Faith is Magic)! Cheers! 📸: @faithnomoar 🖤🕸💚🕷

So @Marvel has asked fans for their favorite #BlackWidow memory for the #Marvel10YearSweepstakes, I’m going to do my best to find the just the right words. When I think of Natasha, the main thing I think about is change. Change is one of those concepts in life that can be so scary, but watching this character has truly helped me learn about how transformative, necessary, and joyous change can be. Natasha is a character who has such pain in her past and wants nothing more than to move forward as a better human being. Watching her grow from a place of being ashamed of her past and cutting herself off emotionally from others to now when we see her consistently moving on openly and with compassion and treasuring the family she’s made with her fellow heroes has been the most beautiful journey. There’s a moment in Captain America: Civil War when she says to Steve Rogers, “Staying together is more important than how we stay together.” That’s my favorite Black Widow memory. The Avengers have become her home and her family. She’ll always have her secrets, of course, but in that moment it feels like she finally knows she’s a part of something she truly loves and those friendships are worth fighting for. So here I am, after years of cosplaying this character, yes, I have a closet full of outfits but more importantly I have some of the best friends a person could ask for because of these films that brought us together. Over the past ten years, Black Widow and @marvelstudios have changed me in only the most positive ways and I’m forever grateful to everyone involved in creating such gorgeously fun and truthful films.

“There was an idea to bring together a group of remarkable people, to see if we could become something more, so that when they needed us, we could fight the battles that they never could.” .

So happy to debut by Infinity War Black Widow at Katsucon this weekend! I’m already looking to improve some things but for a first pass I’m SO very happy! 🕷

If my biggest costume issue is that my thigh straps are very big because I didn’t realize how much smaller my thighs have gotten, I will take that. I’m so happy and admittedly proud myself. 🖤 can’t wait to see you guys at Katsu! 🖤🕸💚🕷

Happy Monday! Here’s part three of my close up Widow side-by-sides! My Lagos jacket 2.0 (photo 2) is still by far my favorite thing I’ve ever made for Nat. Can’t wait to make more in the new year! It’s also kind of wild to see my Cap2 bridge look (photo 4) now that I just found the SA jacket. I wore the alt in the photo since 2014, and here I just acquired the real thing years later because my passion for this character just hasn’t waned. Super cool. All photos by @faithnomoar 🖤🕸❤️🕷

Well. Every other cosplay has officially taken a backseat because all I need to do is build a vest and style a wig. OH HAPPY DAY. 😘🖤🕷🕸❤️ #blackwidow #blackwidowcosplay #natasharomanoff #infinitywar #actualnatasharomanoff

Here's a throwback to three years ago at #NYCC when I thought I was SO COOL and @lilypond81 swept in like a true friend to remind me who I really am 😂

Here’s something a little different for today’s #WidowWednesday. I posted this a while back as I was getting ready for #NYCC but I think it bears repeating. The transformation into cosplay is always fun, always challenging, and I LOVE doing my best to truly emulate a character physically to the best of my ability. My Civil War!Black Widow looks are particularly glamorous compared to my makeup free face (heck, they’re even more glamorous than my typical day-to-day made up face). That being said it’s also important to remember that BOTH THE BEFORE AND THE AFTER ARE BEAUTIFUL. Both have the exact same worth and the same integrity. And this goes for everyone. You, too. Yes, you. ❤️🕸🕷
