Daredevil cosplay recreates Matt Murdock as a lawyer and vigilante
A fan of Netflix daredevil series has created a cosplay that embodies both of Matt Murdock’s identities: his job as a lawyer and the vigilante known as the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen in Season 1 of the series.
Reddit user Confident_Door8862 shared a series of photos where he can be seen in two different costumes. Three of the images feature the cosplayer in a suit and tie, as well as Daredevil’s signature round red glasses and tousled hair. As a nod to the character’s tendency to take hits during fights and leave behind injuries that he tried to hide during the day, the cosplay includes a bloody lip and some bandages on his face.
The other two photos show the homemade black outfit Matt wore for his vigilante missions in Season 1, complete with a mask covering his eyes and ropes wrapping around his hands to protect them.
