James Gunn Shares Fan's Weasel Cosplay From Suicide Squad
This Suicide Squad cosplay is both incredible and terrifying.
James Gunn's new movie, The Suicide Squad, has become a massive hit throughout the DC Universe. The film has been getting high praises from film critics and been certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes since it's release earlier this month.
One of the most popular characters is that of The Weasel, a disturbing looking character portrayed by Sean Gunn. This character certainly has an interesting look to him with his bulging eyes, matted fur, and humanoid features.
One cosplayer by the name of Rhylee Passfield decided that she loved the character's design so much that she wanted to cosplay him. A bunch of people on TikTok were telling him that she needed to cosplay him so after seeing the movie, she was more than ready to cosplay him.
She took a standard white mask and used putty and moldable plastic beads for the face. She also used wool yarn and glued it onto the mask to make the fur. After a paint job and ripping apart a blanket for the body, the cosplay was done.
What Rhylee wasn't expecting, however, was the fact that James Gunn had seen the photo and loved it so much that he shared it across all of his social media platforms. He added the caption, "Rhylee Passfield is gonna win all sort of cosplay Oscars for this #Weasel costume."

The moment Rhylee saw that her cosplay had been reposted, she immediately went to TikTok to express her thanks and awe. She certainly wasn't expecting him to see it, let alone repost it across his entire social media.
We can't wait to see what other cosplays Rhylee will make and post in the future as her cosplays are certainly a sight to behold.
The Suicide Squad released in theaters and on HBO Max on August 6, 2021.
