This year i will be taking my boyfriend to his first convention. (We thought it would be a fun side trip while going to six flags). I will be making our costumes... perhaps buying if i get really lazy, but i can't exactly think of a good anime couple. I know he doesn't want something girly, and lately he's been getting into Bleach but everyone is going to go as Bleach. Maybe Death Note but i don't think anyone would even recognize who we are, and like every other cosplayer, i want to be recognized... and get pictures taken. Anyway, any ideas?

Here is just a small handful of characters you both can choose from:

Usagi and Mamoru as SailorMoon and Tuexdo Mask
Princess Serenity and Prince Endymion from Bishoujo Senshi SailorMoon

Chi and Hideki Motosuwa from Chobits

Belldandy and Keiichi Morisato from Oh! My Goddess

Miaka and Tamahome from Fushigi Yugi

(I'm still trying to think of some more common or less common anime that
some people may or may not remember, I'll add them here if I should recall.)

there are tons of great couples cosplays around. Um, it all depends on what YOU want though. What shows do you watch? that may have more sentimental value to the two of you. Um, some ideas are Tamaki/Haruhi Ouran Host Club, Roy/Riza FMA, Shinji/any NGE girl heh, um the list goes on and on. maybe give an idea of what types of anime the two of you watch, like a genre might help weed out bad ideas. Hope this helps at least alittle.

Just think about which shows you both like and draw from that...? Or heck, think of an anime couple YOU adore and see if he rolls with it. ^_~

I agree that it would be good to pick a show you enjoy and do characters from that, I think it makes it easier to spend the time/money for the costumes if nothing else.

On that note, here's a few more suggestions (not all of these are actual romantically involved couples in the shows):

FLCL:
Naoto and Mamimi/Ninamori/Haruka
Mamimi and Canti
Amarao and Kitsurubami

RahXephon:
Ayato and Haruka/Reika/Megumi/Quon

Fruits Basket:
Tohru and Kyo/Yuki
Kagura and Kyo
Kisa and Hiro
Ayame and Mine

Most any anime has at least one couple that you could do. Or at the least, a male and female main character that would be recognizable together.

Alucard and Seras Victoria
Alucard and Integra

Any FF couples. <3

I think Death Note cosplayers are very recognizable lately, now that's gotten more popular. I just LOVE seeing Light/Misa or Light/L. x3 So cute. And Final Fantasy couples are cute too but I don't usually see them!

Eureka 7 has some good couples. It's not real well known yet so the characters will have less recognition.

Holland/Talho
Renton/Eureka
Doninic/Anemone
Dr. Bear/Mischa (if he's big like a bear)
Ray/Charles
Moondoggie/Gidget

Not really a couple but a Guy/Girl

Spike and Faye from BeBop

Miyu and Larve from Vampire Princess Miyu.

The Major and Bato from Ghost in a Shell.

Speed and Trixie from Speed Racer

I think that doing Misa and Raito from Death Note would be a great idea (its getting more and more popular with the release of the anime and the movies now). Many people would recognize you, or if they didn't then if they saw you carrying a Death Note it would probably make sense then. But the main point is for you to enjoy yourself!

To throw out just a few more interesting ideas:

Just about any two Utena characters. They have relationship issues.

Van and Merle or Hitomi from Escalfowne.

Tenchi and any of the girls from the Tenchi series.

Both Ranmas from Ranma 1/2.

syoaran and sakura tsubasa chronicle verison
Sousuke and Chidori/Tess FMP
Shirou and Saber Fate/Stay Night

But I think that Ranma male and Ranma Female is a good idea

Are you looking for actual couples/people in love/whatever from animes? Or just guy/girl pairings from animes? With the former there could be quite a few, though with the latter there's just that much more.

Also I agree it would be a good idea to choose something from a show you both enjoy.

I think it really depends what pairings you like.
But from Death Note and Bleach I perfer:

IshidaxOrihime
RaitoxMisaMisa

I'll think of more and get back to this. ._.
Perhaps you could list your favorite anime?

At the last con, my boyfriend and I cosplayed Kiba and Hinata from Naruto. Technically, Hinata likes Naruto, but she and Kiba just look so cute together! We love them as a couple more. Plus we both vaguely resemble them.

This year we're doing the two trainers of the new Pokemon games. They're not necessarily a couple, but they go together and that's what we like.

I love the ideas. I had to look up a few. I really like the Link and Zelda, Speed Racer, and the vampire princess miyu. I would personally like to be a real couple, but i did show him pictures of Batou and the Major... just if i could wear what the major does and feel safe in large groups... Thanks for all of the help!

All righty. In earlier threads when couples are involved, Jessie and James as well as Butch and Cassidy from Pokemon have been suggested, or you could do Ash and Misty, May or Dawn. Also, maybe Sailor Moon and her Tuxedo Mask could work as well.

I think all of them have given really gd couple choices.

But still, like any cosplay, there are many many factors to consider:
1. 'pull-it-off-properly' factor; if u dun really look like the character, or at least have the correct body built and mass, its usually a no-no. But of course, its a free world.... ;)

2. Difficulty vs time frame vs skills; i think its really self explanatory. Frm the looks of it, ur boyfrend would be relatively new to such hobbies. Unless he really is an artisen with gr8 creativity and skills to fabricate a costume / prop, likely u will be spending alot of time helping and couching.

And if you're doing Kagome and InuYasha, just tell 'em who wears the pants in the relationship every one in a while by saying "SIT, BOY!" :LOL:

Temari/Shikamaru from Naruto is always a good one.
