Borderlands 2013 (Butt Stallion Approved Thread)

Hey guys! I'm really excited for Megacon this year! On Saturday I'm going to be doin one of my new cosplays for the year... Handsome Jack from Borderlands 2! I'm so stoked to be Jack this year I've even memorized some of his classic lines and stories (like the spoon story) to use at the con!

I just wanted to make a quick Borderlands thread to see if there are any Borderlands faithful on coscom that are attending Mega and dressing up from the game! I can't wait to see all the awesome cosplays this year and definitely be on the lookout for Hyperion's most beloved Psychopath there on Saturday


"... Butt Stallion says hello"

-Update- As users keep updating the thread I'll try to keep an accurate character list up so we can see who's all showing up to the con in Borderlands Cosplay. It looks like Saturday is going to be the day the most of us will be doing Borderlands so we'll make that the official day if we happen to organize a photoshoot or meetup time

So far we have these characters coming out for Saturday:

Jack x2
Moxxi x3
Zed (maybe)
Tiny Tina
Axton x2
Salvador
Lilith x2
Mordecai
Roland
Maya
Sheriff of Lynchwood

He starts shooting at the bastard.

Be like Han.

In to see your meetup times so I can swing by with mah camera. Hopefully it doesn't conflict with the DC and Steampunk meetups.

My husband and I have Borderlands 1 costumes, Dr Zed and Mad Moxxi. We haven't finalized what costumes we will be bringing along with us this year, we had tended last year to be the final time wearing our borderlands costumes buuuut maybe we'll give them one last wear. I'll talk to my husband and see if he's willing to wear Zed again.

I know two people who have finished their Borderlands cosplays for Megacon this year (very good Axton and a Lilith). Sadly I don't have time to make one myself

I didn't have a meetup time setup unfortunately. I made the thread ultimately to see how many others were doing Borderlands since I'm only doing it on Saturday. If there happens to be a big turnout however I may have to reconsider and think of a time for all of us to meet.

As Megacon gets closer we'll see how things turn out. If there's enough interest we'll actually get some real planning for a big group meetup ^_^ ... Also Jade you got a month and some change til mega... YOU CAN DO IT!! JOIN US!! =D (lol that's barely enough time for what some of my friends have in the works ... who am I kidding haha)

Cool! I'll keep updating the character list as the days proceed to get closer to Megacon. We almost have a full Borderlands 1 cast from the looks of it (missing Brick). Keep it up guys this might actually turn into something big ^_^

Keep checking the first post since I'll be editing it periodically as soon as I hear about new additions to the amount of people joining the BL Cosplaying fray!

Husband and I have decided to bring along our Borderlands costumes but we're not sure if we'll be in them whenever everyone wanted to do a group photo shoot. I'm planning on entering the Anime costume contest on Saturday, it hasn't been finalized yet.

Also currently I have the red dress version of Moxxi but if I get my other costumes done in time I plan on doing her purple dress version. (unless the other Moxxis going are doing purple, then I'll stay in red)

My Steampunk group is at 10am and the DC photoshoot is at 2pm - so if you do noon-ish or later afternoon, I'll show up with my camera and lights for some portraits and a group shot.

The Universal (that is, non-Anime) costume contest is at 3:30 and the Anime costume contest is 4:30.

Hey there,

This is the cosplayer that is doing Mordecai on Saturday.
I'm doing Borderlands 2 style. -still constantly working on the cosplay because it's such a pain...- D:
My friend is doing Roland.
I've actually created a group over on Facebook regarding who's doing the Borderlands group for photos and casual walk around the con and such.
Hope to see a lot of cosplayers on Saturday!

I'm pretty sure myself and the Axton and Moxxi I'll be showing up with will be in our cosplays all day. If anything we can try to start rounding everyone up at noon and see where we go from there ? I'll have to discuss it with all the BL cosplayers I know of personally to make sure.

What times are everyone else free for Borderlands cosplay if they were planning more than 1 costume for saturday ?
