This Silk Cosplay Makes Our Spider Senses Tingle

When high school student Cindy Moon was attending a public exhibition demonstrating the safe handling of nuclear laboratory waste materials, sponsored by the General Techtronics Corporation, a spider irradiated by a particle accelerator used in the demonstration, bit Peter Parker in the hand and fell from his hand, it then bit Cindy in her ankle before dying. Cindy’s story was revealed to Peter, now the hero known as Spider-Man, when the Orb released some of the Watcher’s secrets and he went to free Cindy. She tried to warn him about Morlun, but he opened the door anyway and she attacked him for dooming them to being hunted down by Morlun. Peter reveals that Morlun is dead, and after realizing she was free, she made an improvised costume of webs and told Spider-Man to call her Silk before going to her parents’ home.


I am so excited about this costume! Vanessa did a great job as one of the new additions to the Spiderverse; her hand painted Silk costume is youthful and fun! The simple colors and thick lines are a striking eyeful and hopefully soon to become an iconic uniform for fans to recognize. A simple yet stunning cosplay done well. Her posing and expressive eyes really sell the character and she does a great job at portraying Silk’s personality in very subtle ways!
