A mind-blowing WandaVision couple's cosplay embodies the hijinks of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's reality-bending series.
The cosplay, which was originally posted to Twitter by user Detective Drip, is really two cosplays in one. The costumes are split down the middle, with one side depicting Wanda's and Vision's superhero outfits and the other side showing their black-and-white, 1950s sitcom ensembles. Many commenters were quick to claim the photo of the impressive cosplay was simply Photoshopped; however, the cosplayers were quick to post a response video that details how they crafted their painstakingly detailed looks.
The Wanda half of the cosplay, @jan_mackley on Twitter, took time to reply to some questions from other users about how the cosplay was designed. She said that while they dedicated a lot of time to the costumes, there are still elements they'd like to improve. "It took many hours and a lot of sleepless nights [crying face emoji]. It was worth it in the end though," she wrote. "Still not totally happy with it so we still have a little tweeking [sic] to do but so grateful for all the positive comments." She also mentioned that she and her WandaVision cosplay partner, David, often help raise money for charity through their elaborate cosplays.
WandaVision isn't the only MCU entry that has inspired mind-blowing cosplays. Instagram user Alexandra Ashe created arguably the most realistic Crocodile Loki cosplay earlier this year, and another Instagram user, Debbie Wilson, uploaded a pitch-perfect video of a Bro Thor cosplay to fans' delight. There has also been a wealth of MCU fan art -- graphic artist Rahal Nejraoui posted an reimagining of Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange that incorporates the dark tone from the character's What If...? episode, and comic book artist InHyuk Lee recently merged Spider-Man with Netflix's Squid Game in bloody masterpiece.
Created by Jac Schaeffer and directed by Matt Shakman, WandaVision was the first MCU series to appear on Disney+. Following Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch dealing with her grief after the events of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, the series stars Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Fred Melamed, Kathryn Hahn, Teyonah Paris, Evan Peters, Kat Dennings and Randall Park. The show received overwhelmingly positive reviews from both fans and critics, receiving eight Primetime Emmy nominations alongside a wealth of nominations and wins at other awards ceremonies. An iconic song featured in the show, "Agatha All Along" by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, was even nominated for a Grammy.
Aside from WandaVision, other Disney+ MCU series have seen awards recognition as well. Anthony Mackie won Best Hero at the 2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards for his starring role in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and he and Sebastian Stan won the award for Best Duo. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was also nominated for Sci-Fi Fantasy Show of 2021 -- and Mackie again for Male TV Star of 2021 -- at the upcoming People's Choice Awards. Loki Season 1 nabbed multiple People's Choice Award nominations as well.
A myriad of upcoming MCU Disney+ series will make their debut over the next couple of years. Fans can look forward to Moon Knight, Secret Invasion, Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, Ironheart, Agatha: House of Harkness, Echo, Spider-Man: Freshman Year and a currently untitled Wakanda series. Several fan-favorite shows have already been renewed for more seasons, including Loki and What If...?. All nine episodes of WandaVision are available to stream on Disney+.
