View Full Version : Any ideas for characters I could cosplay as?

09-02-2002, 08:50 PM
I'm brain storming for character ideas and wondered if any one could give me any good ideas or opinions. I'll provide a pic below.

These are the animes that I've seen and know the most about: Ranma 1/2, NG Evangelion, Gundam Wing, Fushigi Yuugi, Ah! My Goddess, DB/DBZ, SE Lain, Blue Sub No. 6, Princess Monanoke, Sailor Moon, Tenchi Muyo

I'm willing to find and watch other anime if you think I'd do well to cosplay a character from an anime I haven't seen yet. ^_^ Thank you for your help.

Well...I know she's been done, but I think you could do Miaka from FY. Or maybe Belldandy? What I do when trying to decide on what costume to do is, I pick characters taht I really, REALLY like/love so that I still want to do them, even if the costume gets hard or takes a long time.
Sorry if I'm not much help, I don't really know what kind of characters you like ^^

with your hair type I think you would make a good Yoji from
Weiß Kreuz if you don't mind crossplaying :p

He does look like a pretty cool character. I'll have to look up the show, watch a few episodes. =)

Mmm, why not be Lain? You have hair kinda like her, ya? Or....San from Princess Mononoke? Akane from Ranma 1/2...zillions of options. Pick a character you just adore, and work with it.

Gah we have the same hair, lol. ^^ I've done Youji and Lain, so I think you could do either too. ^^ Though I'm still looking for other characters I can do with my actual hair . . .

lol I know what you mean. It's alot nicer looking to cosplay with your actual hair rather than a wig. But it's hard when your hair isn't strait and easy to make animeish. o.O Thanks for your advise. ^_^ I'm definately going to do Lain for the Jacon weekend. Now for choosing for Fitcon and MetroCon, lol.

my first thought was Pyoko from Digi Charat...

How about Fuu from Magic Knight Rayearth? o.o

I'm doing her goddess costume, it wasnt too hard. In fact I had a great deal of fun with it. At any rate, the key is to find a character that you would really have fun acting like. Becuase to me at least, a costume is so much better if you are almost pretending like you are that character. Like, I'd be all smarty if I was dressed up as faye, and then I'd be really happy and punky if I was dressed up as Mink! So theres my advice.

Instead of Miaka, I would suggest Yui due to shorter hair

I think Lain in her school uniform and maybe a bear hat (maybe from http://www.genkigang.com ^_~) or Chiaki Komatsu from Niea_7 (also from the creators of Lain) would be cute choices for you. Chiaki is really cute and a bit odd but I haven't seen very many people cosplay as her yet!

{The pictures don't really do her outfit much justice but I think it's cute and relatively simple}

Thank you very much! She looks really cool. I hadn't heard about this anime, but It looks interesting, I'll have to look it up. If it's made by the makers of Lain it has to be pretty good.

how about quistis trepe of ff8 or a someone here said, fuu of mkr? i think they will really fit you.

For some reason, I look at your pic and Catherine from Gundam Wing pops into my head. Just me, maybe?

Yeah, I've had a few people at school who told me to cosplay Catherine from GW. I would... but I dont really like her character. Maybe I would do it to make fun of her. Walk around the convention with a bowl of soup, slapping Trowa cosplayers. 0.o lol
