How to Cosplay as Revy (Black Lagoon)

Black Lagoon is one of those anime that everyone should watch but sadly not enough people have heard about. The premise is simple: if you happen to have breasts, you are the most badass thing to walk the earth. That's what makes the main female lead Revy such a fun character, and a great one to cosplay. Though there are no official costumes, her look is very easy to put together. Here's how!

Lowpricenice Sexy Cut Off Low Waist Women
Denim Jeans Shorts Short Mini Hot Pants

The main outfit is easy enough, just a black sleeveless tank top and some seriously short ripped up short-shorts. You can get both above for great low prices. The belt that Revy wears is called a pistol belt, and you can get one that is similar to hers here. That's the basic look, nice and easy. Next up, you'll need some accessories to finish off the look.

Volatile Boot Camp Combat Boot
Revy normally carries her guns in a brown vertical shoulder holster - the one above is a pretty close match. Meanwhile you can find Revy's motorcycle gloves here. With those picked up, all you need is the hair and some killer combat boots - for the latter, the Volatile boots on the right are amazing, and for the former you can find a great Revy wig on the left below. I recommend using a bit of wax to give the fringe a more choppy look.

Last, but not least, you'll need to replicate Revy's tattoo. No need to go out and get inked; I recommend picking up a temporary henna tattoo kit and having a friend do up the look on your arm (or do it yourself if you have a very steady hand!). Be sure to do the skin sensitivity test beforehand, even if you've had henna tattoos before.

So there you have it! That's my guide to dressing up as the ever-amazing Revy from Black Lagoon. I hope you found everything you need and have a great time.
