Hello! This is one of the things I stumbled across recently and needed to post here. It took a fair amount of time to get all of this together, because not only are the images scattered, but I wanted to make sure they were the best quality I could find.

All of these pictures are from something called BurlXMen, a burlesque take on these X-Men, including some genderswap versions of male characters. They were taken at San Diego Comic Con 2016.

There are more pictures out there. Because I’m a Polaris fan, I only bothered with pictures including her, and I left out minor variants. If you’re a fan of one of these other characters, it’s worth your time to check around (including at the links for photographers given below) for more pictures of them.

Now for the credits. First, the cosplayers.

12 Female X-Men Who Deserve Their Own Movie

I’m mainly posting this for Polaris, but I tagged the other women on the list by their codenames. Here’s the blurb for Lorna though, cause I’m selfish like that.

In one of the most depressing backstories, an infant Lorna kills her
parents in a plane crash. While they were arguing about her mother’s
affair with her birth father, Magneto, she became upset and tried to
make them stop with a magnetic pulse. That pulse brought the plane down
and she miraculously survives with newly-green hair. Drawn to her major
display of power, Magneto determines that she is not ready for mutant
life and has an associate rewrite her memories. Her aunt and uncle raise
her as their own, making her believe they were her parents. And you
thought Batman had it rough as a kid.

She is detected by Cerebro
and Iceman is sent to bring her in. He reveals what really happened with
her parents and she turns against Magneto, who–in a plot twist that
would make M. Night Shyamalan envious–ends up being a robot double. She
joins the X-Men and develops a relationship with Iceman, all while
coming into her powers and fighting in a few missions. Did we mention
her dad is Magneto? That alone warrants a solo film.
