The Black Widow’s kid sister is on the prowl, buying vests and kicking ass with this week’s Yelena Belova cosplay!

As Marvel introduces the next wave of superheroes, we continue to learn more and more about the backstories of classic characters in the MCU. In the Black Widow movie, we are finally introduced to Yelena Belova, Natasha Romanov’s younger sister. This week we’re whipping out the vests and ovary jokes for these Yelena Belova cosplays!

Hawkeye show brought Yelena Belova back onto the screen, cementing her as a character for the next wave of Marvel projects. There was some definite bromance happening between Kate Bishop and Yelena, that has fans asking some serious questions about their chemistry. It’s refreshing to see a new wave of sassy, hilarious ladies getting major screen time, with some independent storylines that make us laugh and touch us right in the feels.

Marvel, PLEASE give us the Kate and Yelena buddy comedy we desperately need!

As a cosplay, Yelena is deceptively straight forward. A white jumpsuit can’t possibly be that hard to create, can it? OH YES, it can. The fit and function of this look are crucial to its execution, because a Widow has to have freedom of movement for those action packed power poses. Add in the signature vest and traditional widow accessories- the gloves and the guns- and you’re ready to rock.

“Okay, you got a plan, or shall I just stay, duck, and cover?

I don’t get my period dipshit. I don’t have a uterus.


“I was just going to talk about fallopian tubes…

“I’ve never had control over my own life before, and now I do. I want to do things.

Great plan. I love the part where I almost bled to death.

“Okay, it has a lot of pockets. But I use them all the time, and I made some of my own modifications.

“The truth rarely makes sense when you omit key details.

“Well it’s not smart to attack an Avenger if you want to stay hidden. I mean the clue is in the name. Dreykov kills you and one of the big ones comes to avenge you.

“I swear, if I hear one more word from him, I will kick him in the face.”
