Cosplay Sundae: Puma Sisters (Dominion Tank Police) Cosplay 01 AUG 2010

It’s all the way back to the 80’s for this week’s Cosplay Sundae entry, taking a look at the over the top Puma sisters Anna and Uni, from the beloved manga creator supremo, Masamune Shirow’s Dominion Tank Police!

Furry sisters of destruction!

Dominion: Tank Police was originally a two volume manga series written and illustrated by Masamune Shirow, before getting the green light to be turned into an successful two part OVA series back in 1988 and 1993 respectively. The story is set in the fictional city of Newport, Japan, in a future in which bacterial air pollution has become so severe that people must wear gas masks when stepping outdoors. And as the name suggest, the series follows a rather unorthodox police squadron that makes use of tanks!

Anna and Uni are the criminal Puma Sisters, beautiful android catgirls who were originally created as “love dolls” but who then developed beyond this simplistic programming and went on to join the Super Criminal Buaku – the very person who the Tank Police were formed to act against!

Armed to the teeth and with a penchant for violence, these to inseparable sisters possess strength and agility far superior to humans and apart from the occasional spat, a more cohesive team you won’t find anywhere else!

The cosplayers tackling the big hair, big guns and metallic suits are a pair known as Jia*Jem and HezaChan, and as you can see, with the help of a lot of paper clay, big guns courtesy of artist Daguru, styled wigs, ears and lined bodysuits, the pair pull off the purrfect catgirl android duo!

Catgirls. They don't normally wear hand grenades attached to their belts, do they?

My, what a big gun you have...
