Superhero Hype Cosplay: Recreating Jean Grey’s Most Obscure Costume

Note From the Editor: This week, Superhero Hype’s special guest cosplay correspondent, Ashlynne Dae, is tackling a Marvel Girl costume that you probably have never seen before. Unlike Savage Land Rogue, this rare Jean Grey costume from Atlantis Attacks hasn’t caught on because she only wore it once in X-Factor Annual #4 over three decades ago. The story in question has rarely been reprinted, and thus it’s largely been forgotten except by hardcore X-Men fans and Marvel Unlimited subscribers.

Regardless, even this obscure bit of trivia has an official name according to it’s Atlantean Jean Grey. Although Atlantis Attacks Jean Grey would also be a fitting name for it. Within the context of the panel below by John Byrne and Walt Simonson, Jean is a prisoner in Atlantis, courtesy of the warlord, Attuma. Any resemblance between Jean’s costume and a certain metal bikini from Return of the Jedi may or may not be a coincidence. 

Hello lovely humans! I have a rather obscure version of Jean Grey to walk you through the making of process today. This was a rather long and complicated build. It took me over 100 hours to complete, which for how little I am covered, I feel is pretty impressive! This is a two-part column, so make sure you come back next week to get the full build process and the official costume reveal!

Let’s get into it!

Stay tuned for the second part of this column, where I wrap up the details about the assembly and finishing process with a new in-costume gallery.

In the meantime, enjoy these preview pics of the finished costume!
