This Black Panther cosplay is befitting of Wakandan royalty

T’Challa himself would beam with pride at the hard work, detail and ingenuity that went into this Black Panther costume by renowned cosplayer CutiePieSensei. Her rendition of Shuri in the Black Panther garb is comic book accurate and then some, as the princess has had to take on the esteemed mantle of the protector of Wakanda on more than one occasion in titles such as Black Panther (2009), Doomwar (2010) and Klaws of the Panther (2010).

CutiePieSensei’s Shuri Black Panther costume leans more heavily towards the Vibranium suit appearance of the Black Panther films rather than the comics, with the Vibranium-weave look of the Panther Habit exhibiting a lightweight, but highly resistant pattern.

I’m tired.⠀ ⠀ Tired of having to explain why and how certain things are racist. Tired of having to validate my sheer existence as a black woman to other people. Tired of getting comments from people straight up saying that “there is no proof that America is a racist country”. Tired of people being more upset and vocal about property damage than the murders of innocent black people. None of these instances in the past couple of months are anything new. It’s been happening and continues to happen. And the fact that it has just become an accepted part of living in America as a black person is a huge ass problem. ⠀ ⠀ I’m not explaining my existence anymore. If #blacklivesmatter offends you, then please leave/unfollow this page. I know I’m a cosplayer and that you’re here for cosplay. But I cannot escape my blackness. It affects me on and off the internet and I do not have the luxury of ignoring the things that happen to me or my people. This is my life. Black lives matter. My life matters. I want other people to see that we matter too. And if me reminding you of that makes you uncomfortable, then you need to step on out. No need to write a diatribe about how disappointed you are, no need to go on and on about how all lives matter, not black lives. I do not give a single fuck. Sorry. I’ll ban you and keep it pushing. Your singular number value that you add to a follower count is not worth me having someone around that only wants to fetishize me, and not actually care about issues that seriously affect me. So people who do support, if you see a troll please just point them out ☝🏾 so I can delete accordingly. ⠀ ⠀ If you would like to help some of these causes and be an ally, please visit https://blacklivesmatters.carrd.co/⠀ ⠀ Photo is just to grab attention because otherwise y’all wouldn’t read 😅 I’m hoping it will help my message reach more ppl. Plus I never posted it and Shuri is the most pro black cosplay I’ve ever made. Feels fitting.⠀ ⠀ #blackpanther #shuri #shuricosplay #blackpanthercosplay #instacosplay #blackcosplayerhere #blackcosplay #blackcosplayer #standup

In the Black Panther comics and film, Shuri is the daughter of T’Chaka and sister of T’Challa, the latter being the current Black Panther.

Reposting because MY MAKEUP TUTORIAL FOR MY SHURI COSPLAY IS ON YOUTUBE! The link is on my linktree on my profile! It’s been available only to patrons on my patreon for a few months, but I finally made it public today. My black panther FAQ video is up for Senpai tier and up patrons only, so make sure you join if you want access to that now! Nothing on my patreon is exclusive to just patrons, but patrons do get access a good bit before I make things public to everyone else. . . . Side note, can we talk about how Shuri was basically dusted off screen?? The disrespect smh. . #blackpanther #blackpanthercosplay #shuri #shuricosplay #cosplay #marvel #marvelcosplay #endgame #endgamecosplay

Vibranium is currently the strongest metal in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (remember, the X-Men, especially a certain, adamantium-clawed one haven’t made their official introduction into the MCU yet).

Back of the suit!! You can kinda see the battery packs for the lights but that’s ok >_< . I’m still in love with this thing lol. If you’re interested in potentially getting my suit yourself, please hit up @parallellifestudios (and let me know). While I designed and sewed this one myself, if we get enough interest we may be able to get a plan to make these on a large scale! . . . New Announcement btw! I’m working with @iheartmediaofficial and helping host their brand new C.A.G.E. Halloween event in ATL at Andretti karting!! It’s October 27th and if you’re interested in going and hanging out, playing laser tag with me, or racing, please check out the link on my profile!! It’s gonna be extra dope AND I’m gonna have a new cosplay for it 🙂 . . . Beautiful photo taken by @paoimages . . . #blackcosplay #blackpanther #cosplay #shuri #shuricosplay #blackpanthercosplay #marvel #avengers #marvelcosplay #avengerscosplay
