We’ve already featured some dope Spider-Gwen cosplays from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (like Shirogane-sama and Arabella’s) but what about her Earth-TRN565 Deadpool/Gwen Stacy variant, Gwendolyn Poole AKA Gwenpool?
Cosplayer Elena Strikes brings the fourth-wall-breaking superheroine to life in the following photoset:
Gwenpool was initially just a concept design for the “Gwen Variant” cover of Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars #2 by Chris Bachalo. The character gained such popularity and following that editor Jordan D. White commissioned writer Christopher Hastings to devise her origin and backstory.
Gwenpool’s first full appearance was in Howard the Duck Vol. 6 #1.
“This world isn’t fair, Teddy. But look. There’s a better one, right in there. A shared escapist universe built by hundreds of human creators over decades… a singular linked vision. It’s real! I can almost touch it! It’s been calling to me! I know that!”
