Vampy’s Amazing Genderswapped Nightwing Cosplay

As the superhero identity of Dick Grayson, the all-grown-up first Robin, Nightwing’s almost always been the superhero identity of a dude. Notable exceptions being the Nightwing of the Smallville setting and Power Girl while trying to police the Kryptonian city of New Kandor. But cosplayer Vampy isn’t dressed as any of those. Rather she’s clearly drawing inspiration from the version of Nightwing that appears in Batman: Arkham City, and who cares if he’s not a chick. She’s done an incredible job. See more pictures here.

    Genderswapping and racebending. Yes. Good.

    I had forgotten that “Nightwing” was originally a Kryptonian Batman (with his own Robin analogue for good measure, whose name I forget) based in the Kandor city-in-a-bottle!

    Edited to add: now I feel horribly old… :(
