Discover the only person that the Wakandans have ever feared… Namor! This water dwelling warrior is the king of Talokan, the underwater civilization with technology that rivals even that of Wakanda. This aquatic costume is heavily inspired from Aztec and Mesoamerican culture. This is mainly found in the all the details throughout it. Namor’s signature green trunks are on full display here. They are made from faux suede and are topped with a dazzling gold belt that features a geometric Aztec design. Matching the belt is a series of arm, wrist, and leg guards all of which add an armored element to the suit while retaining the same traditional style. A pair of pleather shoes are bedazzled with a large ornamental jewel in the front and feature a set of white feathered wings on the sides. Gold trimming contrasts nicely against the black base of the shoes. The center piece of this ensemble is the large chunky neck piece. Blue and gold patterns zigzag throughout the piece and a large pearl is centered on the front. Topping this piece is a layered chained costume necklace made up of gold and green and white pearls. Not only is this costume utilitarian but it is also highly decorative and regal.
The head of Wakanda’s Dora Milaje, Okoye, has one of the most colorful and complex costumes to date! As seen in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, this suit takes inspiration from traditional African fashions but also adds a modern flair. This is one of the most intricate garments around and is hand-crafted from high-quality materials. A form-fitting jumpsuit provides the base layer to this colorful costume and a variety of patterns zig zag throughout the entire piece. A multitude of colors can be seen throughout which include pink, yellow, orange, purple, blue and gold. Layers upon layers can be found over the jumpsuit. A brown leather skirt flows freely off the back and an intricate girdle wraps around the waist and torso, crossing around the body. A set of metallic gold shoulder pads is complemented by a dazzling beaded necklace with rings that wrap around the neck and a matching pair of ringed bracelets. All these individual pieces come together to form an ensemble that is on par with any serious warrior’s uniform. A set of optional pleather boots put the finishing touch on this fierce cosplay costume.
