Ponyo! that would be the most adorable thing ever

I'd say ChibiChibiMoon, but a wig (especially one as super-styled as that) on a young child's head might be too harsh....

i like the ponyo idea! i think im gonna do pino from ergo proxy also when she gets a little bigger

Pino would be so cute!....but yea she would have to be a bit older for her.

Ponyo would be cool. Another very easy one would be Chao from the Sonic Adventure 2.
This reminds me of one of the cutest things I ever saw at a convention; a cosplay mom with her baby Moogle. ;)

Lol, looks like we're going to have one more cosplay family ne? ^_^
This isn't exactly meant for an infant, but if I ever saw a Marlene (Final Fantasy Advent Children) in real life, I would spazz and die.
Also, if you've ever seen Avatar: the Last Airbender, the baby Hope? (Lol @ the most obscure costume ever) From the episode The Serpent's Pass (season 2, ep 12).
At Otakon I saw mini Kyoya Ootori and Tamaki Suoh, and I practically had a heart attack.
Also original designs of younger versions of your favorite characters?
Pretty much anything. I've seen mini Kataras, Narutos, etc. Ifdone right young cosplay is sooooo cute.

When you have adorable young children dressed up, you have to be careful so as not to lose them in the glompage by older fans. Lol. ;___;

I second the Sailor Chibi Chibi Moon idea! That would be so cute! And when you're that young, you can get away with not wearing a wig. You could just put her hair in pigtails. Or you could do pigtails and the hair headband thing, but I think that when you're a little kid (like nine and under) you don't have to wear a wig.

Or, you could do Mei Kusakabe from My Neighbor Totoro. That would only need pigtails too.

If you're looking for a Pokemon, do Happiny (http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/a/ae/Hi-res_happiny.png)! :toothy:

OMG that would be so cute and kawaii:toothy:

I saw a little 1 year old dressed as Naruto, and it was so kawaii. His dad was Kiba :p

Anyways, I love the Ponyo idea. Baby Mel would is pretty nice idea as well. If you like Naruto, you can make like a little baby Sakura or something, or for any other of your fave anime characters. I hope this helped:woah:

First thing that came to mind, dress her up as Happiny (http://img32.imageshack.us/img32/3163/440happiny.jpg) and you could be Chansey (http://img32.imageshack.us/img32/9629/113chansey.jpg) / Blissey (http://img127.imageshack.us/img127/4323/242blissey.jpg)! maybe modify the Chansey to be less..pregnant xD

Kangaskhan and child would be totally unbeatable, though it'd be quite a project.
