M0co and Beemo
M0co and Beemo hail from Baltimore’s blossoming rope scene. Having found one another in late 2010, this duo has been honing their skills as Rope Top and bottom together. Both M0co and Beemo have a passion for dynamic and challenging rope work as well as the connection between the Top, bottom, and rope. Although M0co is mainly known for his beautiful handmade jute, he and Beemo also created the Baltimore Guerrilla Suspension Crew in mid-2011 with the sole intention of creating artistic pieces among the urban decay. They have since then branched out into more intricate photo-shoots, including the well-known shot of ‘The Awakening’ at The National Harbor, MD.
Aside from work with BGSC, these Krakens also throw the infamous monthly play party, The Kraken’s Lair.
