There's so much spectacular cosplay from Comic-Con to Dragon-Con and the like, but Nicole Marie Jean wowed us early on with her unique interpretation of a female Bane -- and our readers were as equally wowed!

Congrats to Nicole Marie Jean for winning our 2012 ScreenCrush Award for Best Cosplay! Her hard work that went into making this Lady Bane costume not only impressed us, but it impressed our readers enough to vote her head of the class. You can check out Jean's now award-winning costume, which was hand built/sculpted, here.

Honorable mentions go out to Gina B. for her Velma cosplay, and bodybuilder Alex Fuller for his chiseled 'Prometheus' Engineer.

Here's the full list of nominees for the 2012 Best Cosplay ScreenCrush Award:
