Teen Teams

I just watched all of Young Justice for the first time a few weeks ago, and it was so awesome.  I know I’m late to the party, but everyone who had told me how great the show was, was almost underselling it.  It was incredible, it felt like home.  Usually I don’t go for shows that feature characters younger than me.  But I think that is about some deep insecurity I have.  What Young Justice brought for me, was the same feelings that I got as a kid watching Batman, Superman, The Justice League, Batman Beyond and so many more cartoons.  It’s smart enough for grown ups to love it and fun enough for kids, no that these things are mutually exclusive to what either group is looking for.  I have a list of kids shows that I watch all the time that weren’t around when I was a kid because they are so well done.

These shows also provide teenagers and kids a chance to cosplay as a group in pretty reasonable outfits.  The show changed Zatanna’s classic fishnet stockings to be grey leggings, which is perfect for kids and still maintains the integrity of her classic look.  That’s the kind of change that makes Young Justice such an accessible cosplay for kids and keeps it ok, even more, for their parents.

As it has been proven time and time again, cosplay is more fun with friends.
