View Full Version : Cosplay that would be appropriate for a 12-year old girl?

08-09-2008, 12:57 PM
Well I have medium-brown hair a little bit past my shoulders, and I have light brown eyes... so I would like a character like that, because I don't want to buy another [long] wig or contacts... well if their hair is a little bit longer, that's ok, but I don't want to cut it.... I was thinking maybe Mitsuki... but I think I need some other ideas... but make sure the anime/manga/game is 13+ or under!
I know this is way too specific, but I'm sorry!!! I'm a newbie, this will be my first convention!!!
Thank you so much. I am really out of ideas.

... Sakura, from Cardcaptor Sakura..
Her hair is a little shorter than yours (Just above shoulder length) and her eyes are green (It's not really necessary to go as far as changing your eye colour for a costume..
But, Sakura has TONS of different outfits to choose from..

Rena from Higurashi. She's like... 15, but she looks younger. :'>

And she's cute... when she's not murdering and going insane. :'D But mostly cute.

Is this for you? I'm having problems finding where it is stated, but I do believe you have to be thirteen to legally use cosplay.com.

Oh noes! Underage user!
xrg- Please make another account on your 13th birthday! I know it's a pain but it's safer for everyone :)

Heh, this is actually my sister's account, (She's 18, turning 19 very soon.) I just get on here rarely to ask a question if she is busy. I'm sorry. But I'll make sure she's on here instead next time.

fuu fuu~ Why not try Dagger from Final Fantasy 8? her hair is black-ish tho but if you got dark brown hair you can get away with it and her costume is pretty cute too.

Well, using your sis's account isn't really right. I agree with the others. If there is an age restriction it's for a reason. There are other sites that do not have age restrictions. I know not a lot of them aren't as big as cosplay.com but they are still good. In other words, the age restriction is for your safety.

When we are young we tend to be me vulnerable to predators,and forum fights,and other problems. That's why the age restriction is used, to keep you safe. I would recommend waiting till you are fifteen and then return. If you have any questions ask your sis to post them and she will do it for you and you can read them.

So, for your own safety, better just wait.^^

She's FF9 but yeah it's a pretty easy cosplay to do too. If you buy some extensions you could totally pull off being Katara from Avatar or maybe Suki (Or even Azula ^^)

(This is Em, the older sister.) Kya. Sorry for that. I was on the phone for more than an hour... yes I know I talk for too long. Um... well she doesn't really like to wait for things... I am very sorry. And if we decide to make a costume, I'm probably going to be the one doing all the work. So I would like for it not to be a really complicated costume? I trust my sewing skills, but I still don't have forever... the convention is not until May. :) I'm really sorry for this whole problem.

You could try Yuna from FFX. Don't know if this is your first costume or not, as it is very detailed, but you could try. ^^

If not Yuna, you could do Haruhi from Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. It's a cute and easy enough uniform.

(I second the people above about waiting till you're 13 though). There's some stuff on this site that might not be appropriate for younger eyes. ^^;

Why not try something from Pokemon/Digimon/Beyblade etc?

08-12-2008, 09:04 AM
dagger from ff9 FTW!

it works out well cuase daggers extremely tiny

*edit*um... or her other name.. garnet... what ever lol*edit*

I second the suggestion of Sakura from CardCaptor Sakura! You can find a lot of her costumes here:


If you haven't seen it, she's the one who's in almost all of the pictures.
Some of the costumes are more complicated than others, but there are a few simple, cute costumes, too!

Off the top of my head...
Trucy Wright from the Phoenix Wright game. (http://img219.imageshack.us/img219/8942/trucyra7.png)
Yuffie Kisaragi from Final Fantasy 7 (advent children version) (http://www.yaldy.net/Angelphie/Refs/yuffieref.jpg) I don't think the original would be appropriate for a 12 year old.
Kiki from Kiki's Delivery Service (http://www.northarc.com/images/kiki/kikic1024x768.jpg)

I can't think of anything else right now, but you should think of anime/video games that you like and pick out some characters. That's usually how I narrow down my choices for myself.

I do agree that it's best to start with a game or series you like, and then work from there. But any school uniform outfit is fairly easy and appropriate for someone young. For instance, any of the girls from Sailor Moon have really easy and cute school uniforms. Also, the main character from Fruits Basket. And many others. Go with something she'd really enjoy dressing as!

08-13-2008, 01:40 PM
I second the suggestion for Kiki from kiki's delivery service. it's an easy cosplay and it's meant for someone small and cute. ( Like You! =^^=) You could always try Tokyo Mew Mew Ichigo's maid cosplay:http://i274.photobucket.com/albums/jj249/AnimeLover99919/ichigo3.jpg or Yuna From FF8:http://www.ffcompendium.com/art/10-yuna-a.jpg both are super cute !!!!\^^/ =^^=

How about Sen from Spirited Away? Its a simple costume and very comfortable, and Sen is a very endearing character.

08-14-2008, 03:34 PM
I agree with the others that said sakura from cardcaptor or even tsubasa they would both work for u.

08-22-2008, 05:41 AM
Definately Haruhi Suzumiya that you should do...
Its very easy to make her school uniform costume...
I'm making one right now... ^^
Nearly finished...
Tell me if you need any help ^^
