Black Lagoon Cosplay: Revy (Rei Kohinata) Cosplay 19 SEP 2012

Japanese cosplayer Rei Kohinata 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.

Ikkitousen Cosplay: Shimei Ryomou (Rei Kohinata) Cosplay 15 JUL 2012

Japanese cosplayer Rei Kohinata dons her sexy blue french maid outfit and grabs a pair of handcuffs, as she transforms herself into the enigmatic submission grappler Shimei Ryomou, from the popular Ikkitousen franchise, better known as Battle Vixens over here in the West!

Shimei Ryomou is an almost emotionless girl with a checkered background and almost unreadable personality at the moment. A master of all types of submission holds and grappling, Shimei is a dangerous fighter with a penchant for wearing French maid outfits and carrying around handcuffs wherever she goes.

She has a distinctive mole on her cheek, short blue hair, and wears an eye patch over her left eye. As it turns out, Ryomou actually possesses one of the Dragon Spirits, which resides in her left eye and which happens to just slowly be killing her – which obviously doesn’t help her unfriendly disposition much either!
