Zack from Carmen Sandiego

Zack (voiced by Michael Hawley) is part of Carmen’s main team in the 2019 Netflix adaptation of Carmen Sandiego.

He’s part of the team with his sister Ivy, and tends to be a bit less attentive when it comes to missions as he’s a bit distracted, but when it really comes to it he tries his best to actually contribute. Zack is very good at bluffing his way out of bad situations, which he tends to end up in very often, usually of his own making.

Like Ivy, he has reddish orange hair and greenish-blue eyes, with prominent freckles on his face. He wears a long sleeve shirt with a red and white jersey-type t-shirt over top, casual blue jeans, black socks, and black high-top converse shoes.

Ivy from Carmen Sandiego

Ivy (voiced by Abby Trott) is part of Carmen’s main team (be it thieves or in league with A.C.M.E) in the 2019 Netflix adaptation of Carmen Sandiego.

She and her brother Zack work in a team to aid Carmen in her retrieval and recovery thieving, doing everything from being a getaway driver to disguising herself as Carmen when necessary for the other to make a quick escape.

Ivy has short wavy reddish orange hair, very light greenish-blue eyes, and prominent freckles. She wears a very easy to move around in outfit due to the nature of her job. It consists of a pair of greyish white capris, a black t-shirt with blue sleeves, and red high-top converse shoes.

Julia Argent from Carmen Sandiego

Julia Argent (voiced by Charlet Chung) is one of the key characters in the Netflix version of Carmen Sandiego.

She is an A.C.M.E. agent that was formerly part of Interpol, and one of the few people in her team from the beginning that believed that Carmen wasn’t the threat that the rest made her out to be, which lead to her helping Carmen’s team in future.

Julia is lightly freckled, with dark eyes and very short blackish-blue hair. Her main outfit she’s seen in during the series is a blue pantsuit set, a reddish orange shirt underneath, a pendant necklace, stud earrings, circular framed glasses, and chocolate brown loafers.

Mime Bomb from Carmen Sandiego

Mime Bomb is one of the agents of V.I.L.E in the Netflix adaptation of Carmen Sandiego (2019).

He is one of Carmen’s former classmates, but ultimately followed in the path the school was teaching and became a criminal mime. We don’t know very much about him aside from the little we see in the show, but he’s often sent on stealth missions as he’s quiet and well adept at becoming part of a scene to gather information.

Mime Bomb has light greyish-blue eyes, wavy auburn hair tucked behind his ears, white face paint with a light red lip and emphasized black brows and heavy black eyeliner, and his outfit consists of a grey multi-toned striped turtleneck, black skinny pants, black flat shoes, white gloves, and a black beret.

Kneemoi from Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego

Kneemoi from Where In The World is Carmen Sandiego

Kneemoi may look sweet but don’t take your eyes off her. She’s a shapeshifting grifter who has no issue stealing whatever she wants. Once she even stole all knowledge of Tai Chi! As one of Carmen Sandiego’s henchwomen, she is comfortable in a life of crime, something you probably shouldn’t bring to your Kneemoi cosplay.

Along with setting aside her criminal tendencies, Kneemoi cosplayers have a unique challenge. Kneemoi, in her normal state, is a pink floating ball with arms and, sometimes, a hose-like nose. A pink bodysuit is a good start, as are false lashes and pink face paint. You can add a pink skirt and pink flats if you would like a few more layers. And if you want to copy the nose she has in some variations, you can use skin-safe glue to attach a plastic hose over your nose.

Gumshoe Contestants

Based on the computer game of the same name, Where In the World is Carmen Sandiego?, is a children’s game show that aired in the early 90s. The contestants, referred to as “gumshoes” by the Chief, must help ACME find Carmen by answering questions about geography.

Carmen Sandiego

Carmen Sandiego is a world-class cat thief and head of the criminal organization VILE. She’s able to elude the ACME detective agency as they chase her all over the globe, and teach kids some geography along the way. Unfortunately she rarely stays in San Diego — that would make things too obvious.
