Cosplay ACen 10 - Borderlands by total-havok Cosplay ACen 10 - Borderlands by total-havok
So this year at Anime Central, my boyfriend and I dressed up as Lilith and Mordecai - we actually won Best Group, too! For those of you not familiar with ACen, it has over 20,000 attendees, so to win anything there was a shock!

I had planned to have a Claptrap, but I ran out of time...he's a heap of materials in a box right now. (Quick, find a repair kit!) We'll probably be going to Youmacon in Detroit and rewearing these, so I'll definitely have one then - along with a Roland and Brick that I'm going to be working on. We love these too much not to wear them again!

At a con as huge as ACen, it felt amazing to win an award, but the community for Borderlands was really representing, and that was the best part for me. We've been addicted to this game since it came out...literally, we play nothing else. So it was awesome to meet so many other people who feel the same. On Saturday we actually asked each person that took our picture what class they played and kept track...
Sirens FTW! (:

There's more specific costume info about Lilith here and Mordecai here for those of you that want to check that out.

Seriously, those Nerf guns look like something out of one of Marcus' vendors...Lillith's SMG especially looks like my Twisted Hellfire without optics!

Aww, that's too bad. We'll probably have these back again this year, so look for us then! We should have a Brick, Roland, and even a Claptrap in tow!

YAY! A CLAPTRAP! So you can get the whole gang, hopefully I will be able to stay every day. I also hope I can get a Bioshock cosplay.

Borderlands cosplayers are popping up with increasing regularity lately.
In fact, I'll be going as Roland for the next con I go to.

Awesome! We ran into a REALLY good Psycho at ACen, and a Moxxi, too. It was nice to see some other fans representing.

Make sure you post your Roland! I haven't seen a good one yet - I'm working on one now for October, so hopefully that actually gets finished... (:

Aw man! Did you get a pic of them too?

I've put a lot of effort into my Roland, the only problem is that I'm white... like, very white.

I have a picture with us and the Psycho - I just haven't uploaded it yet :XD - and we took pics with Moxxi, but I don't have any. :(

And who cares! As long as your costume is good, no one will care. (:

Awesome! Aww.

That's what my friends have been telling me. If there can be a black Cloud, there can be a white Roland.

I do them with a lot of time and a lot of planning! It's really a matter of trial and error, and a whole bunch of experimenting. I've made only a handful of costumes now, and I get better with each one. So just start with something you like, and research, research, research! Good luck with yours, and thanks for looking! (:

Haha, thanks! We'd planned to have a sniper for Mordecai, but the Maverick was just too perfect - my boyfriend's favorite gun is the Pestilent Defiler, so it only made sense. (:

I wasn't a revolver person, myself, but by boyfriend really was. I used more SMGs and pistols. I can't deny the awesomeness of that gun, though.
