Take a look at the Archer cosplay guides representing characters from the award-winning adult animated series. Following a dysfunctional group of secret agents as they complete dangerous missions, each covert operation ends up revealing just how narcissistic and selfish each agent really is. Now is your chance to bring this group of egotistical characters to life through cosplay. You can find the look of your protagonist Sterling Archer, his girlfriend Lana Kane, or the other employees at the International Secret Intelligence Service. With each costume guide, you can see how to dress up to be ready for both espionage and fun!
Beginning the series as a field agent for ISIS, Lana Kane also begins the series as Sterling Archer’s girlfriend. However, after realizing the toxicity of the relationship, Lana and Sterling eventually part ways. The two colleagues still possess lingering feelings as the series progresses. As a secret agent, Lana is fierce and quick to anger, often resorting to violence in many conflicts. Despite this, she remains determined to become a mother. Eventually having a baby with Sterling Archer, Lana finally rekindles her relationship with Sterling Archer. Once Archer falls into a coma, Lana becomes Lana Kane, the undercover agent posing as a singer in the Dreamland House Band. She later becomes Princess Lanaluakalani in Danger Island.
Raymond Gillette, or Ray for short, is an ISIS analyst, bomb specialist, and field agent. As one of the more optimistic agents early in the series, Ray values his friendships and is seen as one of the least selfish agents at ISIS. He does, however, enjoy tormenting Sterling Archer through playful yet occasionally dangerous ruses. Ray experiences some major karma throughout the series after lying about being paralyzed. He suffers paralysis inflicted by Sterling on more than one occasion. Ray continues to show hostility towards Sterling and spirals into a deep depression. During Archer’s unconsciousness, Ray becomes a trumpet player for the Dreamland House Band and later becomes Capitaine Reynaud throughout Danger Island.
Archer has been making audiences laugh for the past decade. At an international spy agency, global crises are just opportunities for the nine secret agents to sabotage and betray one another for their gain. The show centers on the smooth and selfish Sterling Archer as he works for his boss and domineering mother, Malory Archer. He also must navigate working with his ex-girlfriend and the mother of his child, Lana Kane. Showcasing both espionage and dysfunction, Archer makes for a humorous experience among viewers.
Leaving time and place behind, Archer follows a timeline unique to most shows. After falling into a coma, the series follows the protagonist Sterling Archer as he dreams while he’s unconscious. Season 8 takes place in a 1947 noir Los Angeles called Dreamland. While in season 9, Archer goes even further back in time to 1938. The characters typically stay the same, but each plays a different version of themselves, allowing you to choose the specific period you wish to cosplay!
