Black Lagoon Cosplay: Revy (Makiron) Cosplay 12 OCT 2013

Japanese cosplayer Makiron slips into her denim “Daisy Dukes” shorts, picks up some nasty looking guns, and adopts a mean attitude, all the necessary ingredients to bring to life Black Lagoon’s resident shooter, Revy!

Ill-tempered, foul-mouthed, merciless and a sadistic killer, Revy is the Lagoon Company’s shooter, certainly not a woman who you should be arguing with, but for some reason has so far refrained from killing Rock, despite his attitude towards her!

Revy is one of the deadliest fighters in the series, whose skill with firearms and ability to dodge bullets is almost superhuman and unparalleled. There are only a few other characters, such as Roberta and Ginji, that can hold their ground against her in combat.

Her weapons of choice are a pair of modified Beretta 92FS’s; which are made out of stainless steel and had their barrels extended from 4.9″ to 5.9″ each (the 5.9″ is the combat MOD barrel) and also adapted for silencers. They are engraved with the words “9mm Sword Cutlass” on both sides, the Jolly Roger of the pirate Calico Jack (which is also inlaid into the ivory grips), and a manufacture inscription in Thai. Due to her ambidextrous marksmanship skills, she is nicknamed “Two Hand” by the denizens of Roanapur, which is based on Douglas E. Winter’s novel Run. Revy is also proficient in the use of other weapons, such as high powered rifles and the M79 grenade launcher.

Constantly living on the edge of life, Revy has developed a rather bleak, almost nihilistic outlook on life, relying only on her own power, skills, and money. She does believe in God but not emotions. However, she seems to respect and trust her companions.

Japanese cosplayer Makiron aims high as she tries to take on the always popular character of Major Motoko Kusanagi, of the famed Ghost in the Shell by Masamune Shirow franchise.

She is voiced by Atsuko Tanaka in the movies and the Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex anime series. In the English dubbing of the original films she is voiced by Mimi Woods and Mary Elizabeth McGlynn in the sequel and in the anime series.

Kusanagi’s various incarnations in the manga, movies, and TV series all portray her differently. Since each of these has an independent storyline, Kusanagi’s physical and mental characteristics have been modified in different ways to reflect the focus of each respective story.

And now you know.
