Let me start this off by saying that Rose Romanova is amazing. Her Black Canary cosplay? Uneblievable! I know, I know. I say that about all the models, cosplayers and clients that I work with but seriously. That’s because they’re all amazing. Stick around, because you’re about to be impressed. With a capital I.

The only way out of here is through me. I hope you’re stupid enough to try. – Black Canary
What can I even say about this badass cosplay? When Rose stepped into the dark room that housed the screams and pain of a million fallen soldiers, there was power in every single step. She in that moment was Black Canary. Gone was the down to earth bubbly girl who had just politely pet my dogs who were trying to eat the handmade elements of her costume… Now, in my presence was a fighter… A woman who would not stand for defeat.
The room was filled with nothing but high kicks and a t t i t u d e.
Anyone who stepped into that sacred space knew better. At least, for their sake… I hoped so.
As she stepped into the light, I realized that Canary wasn’t just tough… She was beautiful.
And just when you thought this Black Canary Cosplay couldn’t get any more badass..
It would be fitting that the first thing I noticed on Black Canary’s bike was the word Triumph. This woman looked as though she had dominated every stereotype pressed against her and said “I am badass.”
My father was a cop. I married a cop. I was meant to be a cop. But this city didn’t want a female detective. – Black Canary
