Man in Black


A “Last Minute Cosplay” as a start? Why not!

I only wore it at the Frankfurt Book Fair because I didn’t want to go there without a cosplay. So I decided about 2 weeks before the con to put this together.

For the gun I took a Nerf Dart Tag Swarmfire and painted it silver/black. After the convention I also put in LEDs. The Neuralyzer (made out of PVC tube and the flash from a one-use-camera) and the Noisy Cricket (a little nerf gun) are also self made.

Why did you choose this character?
I love the MIB movies with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones and I needed a last minute cosplay for the convention. Since I already had a suit, this was the fastest thing to do.


What do you like the most about this cosplay?
The big weapon! The blue light is so bright, I looked into it once and had 20 little dots in my eye sight for about 15 minutes.
