Detective Comics Cosplay: Talia al Ghul (Klytaemnestra) Cosplay 24 JUN 2012

Our cosplay entry comes today courtesy of the suitably dark (well for this shoot at least) cosplayer Klytaemnestra, who brings to life a very ready for business (sword and all) Talia al Ghul from the Batman universe.

The now-estranged daughter of Ra’s al Ghul, Talia al Ghul first made her appearance in Detective Comics #411 back in 1971. She has been a long time love interest of Batman, culminating in her being the mother of his son Damian Wayne, the fifth Robin.

Talia has long been a complex character, straddling the line of neither heroine nor villainess. She has committed many criminal acts in her service to her father, but never for personal gain, but at the same time she has saved Batman’s life on numerous occasions as well as help bring about the downfall of Lex Luthor.

In terms of abilities, Talia is an Olympic-level athlete, having been trained since birth in many forms of martial arts. She is also quite proficient with most hand weapons, and her ability as a hand to hand fighter is often underestimated.

X-Men Cosplay: Emma Frost (Klytaemnestra) Cosplay 29 APR 2012

Emma Frost, once the White Queen and part of the infamous Hellfire Club, has since moved on from being one of the X-Men’s most dangerous foes to being one of their most central members. Cosplayer Klytaemnestra has taken it upon herself to don the necessary white attire and bring to life this powerful mutant telepath!

Created by Chris Claremont and John Byrne back in 1980 and first appearing in Uncanny X-Men #129, Emma Frost started out as a dangerous mutant telepath associated with Sebastian Shaw’s Hellfire Club under the moniker the White Queen. Over the years however this powerful telepath has gradually switched alliances, becoming somewhat of a hero in the process. Sophisticated, elegant and with quite a dry wit, Emma Frost has since become one of the most popular female characters in the entire Marvel stable.

Her abilities include of course her powerful telepathy which allows her such feats as broadcasting and receiving thoughts, mind-control, altering perceptions and memories, psychic shielding, astral projection, mind switching, mental sedation and even the ability to inflict mental pain via touch. She can also activate or boost other mutants’ abilities as well. Outside of her psionic abilities, Emma also has the ability to transform into her diamond form, which comes at the price of her psychic abilities but delivers to her an indestructible body and increased strength.
