As the title says, I am trying to make a costume for the first time to wear at AX 2003. Does anyone know a good costume idea for me?

Thank you,

Post some pics of yourself so we can better recomend things. It's much easier to make costumes when you actually look like the character ^_~

I can't post pictures at the moment because we are in the middle of moving and our digital camera/scanner is packed away. Actually, pretty much everything is except for the actual computer.

I can give you a description of myself, however.

Hair: Blond
Hair Length: almost an inch past my shoulders
Eye Color: Bluish Grey
Height: 5'5
Weight: :rolleyes: I guess I am on the skinny side....I have no muscle though....

Um.... anything else you need to know?

One of Aya's outfits from Ayashi no Ceres might suit you. Possibly Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne or Filia from Slayers.

Go with something simple for your first con, unless you're an accomplished at sewing, then GO NUTS!! I suggest you watch some old anime and some new ones too and make your decision from there. I think people do the best cosplay when they decide who they want to be because then you'll love the chara your doing.

Relena from Gundam Wing would be easy
You could do a random outfit for sailor Moon/Venus, Those are pretty easy, and always cute ^.^
UmmmMmmM... you could be the chick from angelic layer *_* they have such pretty school uniforms!

Excel from Excel Saga would be cool, or you can try that person I think her name was Ritsuko from Evangelion (sorry if I got the name wrong but my memory's been hectic for a while)

or try Belldandy from Ah my Goddess

Ummm...okay let's see now....here's what I think

If you are a guy....you should be Dr. Kyoji from Amazing Nurse Nanako...or Zidane from Final Fantasy IX.

If you are a girl you should be young kotori from X/1999(in the flash back kotori only has hair past her shoulder and no further)
Ummm...who else *sratches head*hmmm...you could curl your hair and be Fuu from Magic Rayearth Knights....

sorry that's all that I can think of at the moment...if I think of anything I'll tell you okay?Bye!

you know after reading this forum I'm thinking about being more then just military guys like Jin-Roh or Resident Evil. Who do you think I would fit? I have short black hair that naturally sticks out in the front, I have average height which is like 5'5" I think. I'm told to go as Isamu, or Van or maybe even Tamahome. still I'd like to know what others would think

^_^ Thanks for the help, everyone! I am still not positive on who I will go as.....i'll probably decide and then change it 5 time before I start working on the costume ^_^;;

To Neodrifter- Short Black hair..5'5''...you could be many many anime or game male characters- You could try Tenkawa Akito from Nadesico (his Aestavalis pilot outfit..maybe), Orson or Parn from Record of Lodoss War...ahm...just a few pulled straight off my head...

ok I'll add it to my mental list and then do a random drawing at my anime club at school
