Black Widow

Cosplayer Name- Natisha Xavier

Cosplayer Blogs presents a stunning lady who has cosplayed as Black Widow from Avengers. When asked about her personal life she said that I’m a poet and a published author. I grew up in Saudi Arabia, and moved to India, eight years ago.

I got recognized within the cosplay community when my cosplay of ‘Black Widow’ from the “Avengers” movie became a hit at Bengaluru Comic Con 2018. Even though my costumes are usually light and simple. Everyone always recognizes the character I’m cosplaying, because I choose very popular characters from mainstream Hollywood movies and TV shows.

Other notable cosplays I have done include ‘Elektra’ from Netflix “Daredevil” series, ‘Selina Kyle’ (Catwoman) from “Gotham” TV series, and ‘Black Swan’ from the Hollywood movie “Black Swan”.


Cosplayer blogs asked her about some other questions as follows:

  • Why do you cosplay ?

Cosplaying as a superhero, or any strong and powerful movie character, feels extremely liberating and empowering. Moreover, It’s also very exciting and enjoyable to just become your favorite character for a while.

  • First Cosplay experience…

My first cosplay experience at Comic Con had been with my friend, Farhan. Everyone was watching the “Daredevil” series on Netflix during that time, so we were inspired to cosplay as Daredevil and Elektra. We had planned this just a couple of days before Comic Con. We put together the costumes with whatever we had at home. We didn’t buy or create anything new and we didn’t spend a single penny.

Since our looks were pretty casual and simple, we didn’t expect anyone to recognize us either. When we stepped into the convention center, we were shocked to see that pretty much everyone recognized us. People were lining up to take pictures with us. It was a thrilling experience.

  • Where do you make your cosplay?

I don’t do any heavy or elaborate cosplays. I don’t create my own costumes from scratch. I just creatively put together simple outfits by assembling separate readymade pieces.

  • Have you had someone mistake you for a different character?

Yes, some people have mistaken my Black Widow cosplay for ‘Catwoman’. They were misled by the black leather suit I was wearing.

  • Do you have cosplays that are painful and or uncomfortable?

With the Black widow costume at Comic Con, the straps of the gun holster were wrapped too tight around my thighs and were extremely painful. It made me very uncomfortable throughout the day. Eventually, my blood circulation got cut and I couldn’t feel my legs anymore. At some point in the evening, I lost my mind and started trying to break the straps with my bare hands. Eventually, a friend came along and helped me remove the straps.

  • What’s your funniest cosplay story?

The funniest experience was when I was hired to cosplay as Black Widow, along with a few other cosplayers, at a traditional wedding! Everyone was making hilarious Tik Tok videos with us and making us dance with them to Bollywood and Kannada songs.

  • If you could cosplay anywhere in the world, where would it be ?

Definitely at Comic Con USA. That’s the dream!
