Black Lagoon/Jormungand

Anyone doing a Black Lagoon or Jormungand cosplay this year?

I'm currently considering whether or not to resurrect my Mr. Chang. I've been improving it little-by-little each year, but he hasn't seen the light of day in quite a while now despite me continuing to work on him. A quick search shows that Katsucon 2012 had a Mr. Chang, Revy, and a Benny.

Will there be more, or will the city of Roanapur be mine for the taking?

Since they take place in the same universe, Jormungand cosplayers are welcome as well.

lol at your sig: "GETTIN' READY FOR KATSUCON KILL ME NOW"

You really don't see too many Balalaika's around. I've never seen one anyway. Don't kill yourself over finishing her, but there's no way I'm missing out on a Black Lagoon photoshoot (no matter how small) if she's there. Such a rare opportunity shouldn't be missed.

Like you, my current focus is on other cosplays (for me, that's finishing up a commission for a friend), but I'll find some time before Katsucon to clean up Mr. Chang and put together a new and improved set of Beretta 76's.

Given that I haven't started Roshaun, and all that's left on Balalaika is figuring out the makeup, you may just see her on Saturday. It all depends on how the semester treats me.

But I'm certainly crossing my fingers that last year's group makes a reappearance. I saw them briefly last year but didn't get the chance to say hi and take their picture.

Ah, best of luck to you. Still finishing school myself, but I'll be spending most of my time interning since my course load is light.

For a con this size, we should see at least one Revy running around. The other characters are considerably less common, unfortunately. Actually, for Anime Boston 2010, our Black Lagoon group grabbed a random lolita, gave her a shotgun, and asked her to pose for us as Roberta. XD

For the most part, most Black Lagoon cosplays can be put together relatively quickly and cheaply. So, for those of you who are checking out this thread, like the series, and have an empty slot in your cosplay schedule, I welcome you to join us.

Personally, I'd really like to see Sawyer the Cleaner, the Hansel and Gretel twins, and, well, Balalaika.

At the moment I am planning on wearing Balalaika on Saturday!
Hopefully that won't get derailed by failed makeup attempts but I really want to wear her so I'll try my best.

Also I had never heard of Jormungand before this thread - I marathoned it, fell in love, and if I had more time before the con I'd totally put together a Koko cosplay. u w u

Nice. I'll plan for Saturday as well then.

I'm still working on my friend's commission (ran into some difficulties) so I probably won't be able to put together a new set of guns. My old ones still look okay from ten feet away. Just need to redo my scarf and find a pack of candy cigarettes.

In my opinion, Jormungand feels completely different from Black Lagoon. Black Lagoon focused on bringing out the best in each character while Jormungand focused on exploring different ideologies. Regardless, I enjoyed them both.

I actually wanted to do someone from Jormungand, but I feel like the only recognizable male character would have been Kasper, and he's still relatively normal looking. >.<

This thread got "Time to Attack" stuck in my head again.

Well, she is probably the most interesting character in the series. Got to love her reactions to Hansel and Gretel and the Washimine Group arc.

I know this is stupidly late and I doubt anyone will see it, but look for Balalaika for sure tomorrow!

I had the luck to see that Revy on Friday.... but not when I was in Balalaika. I also managed to see a Valmet! And then left without exchanging contact info! Valmet if you're out there I would love to be your Koko ; o ;
