An X-cellent Display of Cosplay from D23’s X-Men Hellfire Gala

By Jocelyn Buhlman

The first real-life Hellfire Gala jumped from the pages of X-Men comics to Parq Nightclub in San Diego, California, this past Saturday, July 22—and D23 Members dressed to impress! Inspired by mutantkind’s biggest event in Marvel comics, our Hellfire Gala brought out the best of cosplay and costuming inspired by not just the X-Men, but an array of fashionable Marvel characters. It’d be a Sentinel-sized challenge to show every single superpowered style from that night, but we’ve rounded up some of our favorites to keep the celebration of 60 years of X-Men comics going. Check out the gallery below, and explore the #XMenHellfireGala tag on social media to see more of the amazing costumes from the night!
