Rule 63 of the internet. Every anime or comic book character has a version of itself as the opposite sex. This has not lost its meaning when it comes to cosplay. Rather making a statement, doing it for a laugh, or showing original talented design concepts, genderbent costumes are more popular than someone may think.
For the most part, we look for costumes redesigned for dressing up on the opposite sex. Gender bending cosplay consists of taking that look and changing it to fit the sex of the model. It is not the same as cross-dressing. In fact in many ways its the opposite. Here are some of the most impressive gender changing cosplay found around the web.

Lady Joker by Unknown
This opposite sex Joker cosplay looks like it could be an actual character. It could be Harley Quinn taking The Joker’s place. This also could be an alternate universe Joker. Either way, A+ for style on this cosplay.
Guy Ariel (Disney Princess/Mermaid)
It’s worth noting, even though Deadpool is a popular gender swap cosplay, there is a Lady Deadpool in the comics. She looks just like Deadpool. Accept, Lady Deadpool has a blonde pony tail and some curves. I assume she doesn’t sound like Ryan Reynolds. More Girls as Deadpool
