Cosplay of the Day: Don’t Mess With Hit-Girl
If there’s a lesson to be learned from ‘Kick-Ass‘ (aside from how maybe it’s a bad idea to pretend you’re a superhero when you don’t have any powers), it’s this: don’t mess with Hit-Girl unless you want to get your ass kicked.
‘Kick-Ass’ is a fun, crazy superhero movie, but the best part by far is Chloe Moretz‘s portrayal of Hit-Girl, the pint-sized little lady who kicks more ass than her grown-up male counterparts. Yeah, she’s a little girl and she shouldn’t be playing with knives and grenades, but it’s fantasy and it’s all in good fun. Besides, there aren’t nearly enough women kicking butt in superhero movies.
We love this screen-accurate cosplay of Hit-Girl from DeviantArt user SniperPlushie, who isn’t interested in aging up the character even though she’s older than who she’s portraying. SniperPlushie keeps it real and goes all out with a full vinyl body suit and Hit-Girl’s sassy schoolgirl skirt — all in purple. So much purple! She also has a couple of photos where she incorporates Hit-Girl’s real-life counterpart Mindy with blonde pigtails. If you’ll recall from ‘Kick-Ass,’ Hit-Girl’s only interested in her “real self” for what it can help her accomplish.
Check out some pics of SniperPlushie as Hit-Girl below, or head over to her DeviantArt page for more photos and tons of other great costumes from this cosplayer.
