View Full Version : Help two friends pick a cosplay?

11-16-2009, 11:37 PM
Okay, well a friend and I are soo excited about our first con, but we haven't gotten our costumes figured out yet. Keep in mind these are our first cosplays, and since I and my sewing partners will be doing at least the structure of both in just two weeks, superly complicated stuff is out of the question. (Like Soul Calibur costumes... T_T)
Although we are cosplay newbies, between the two of us and one of my other friends, we've done over 20 costumes for a play, so we do know how to sew. ^^
5'3", currently black hair, naturally brown, and brown eyes but it doesn't really matter since I can get colour contacts and a wig. Nothing skimpy! A bit low cut doesn't bug me too much, no short skirts or bare tummies. I have a generally quiet personality, so super hyper characters might be a bit of a challenge for my first cosplay. I can do angry or brooding though ^^

about 5'5", naturally red-blonde hair and "greeny hazelly" eyes, whatever that means. I don't think she can wear contacts, not totally sure. Is expecting to have to buy a wig. She doesn't mind low cut or short skirts, but no bare tummies because she thinks she's got fat there. Hyper and/or strange characters are good! She's got a.. quirky personality.

About the goal:
We'd like to cosplay as two characters from the same series/game. Preferably friends, not enemies, but if you can think of a really good pair, mention it anyway! I've been having trouble thinking of two female main characters, most of the main character duos I come up with are female/male.
Neither of us want to crossplay.

We've been asking around on different forums and the suggestions so far are, with mine listed first:
Tomoyo & Sakura from Cardcaptor Sakura and/or Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles, Yuna & Rikku from Final Fantasy X (X NOT X-2), Shia & Misha from Pita-Ten
Himeka & Karin from Kamichama Karin, Rukia & Orihime from Bleach (School or casual version), and Haruhi & Renge from Ouran High School Host Club.

There's a huge list of anime & games we like, but since this post is long enough, I'll just say we're willing to research anything as long as it's not Naruto, because it's simply overdone, or a game on PS3 or XBox 360, because we don't have those consoles.

Thank you for the help.

I think you should do Mio Akiyama and Ritsu Tainaka or Azusa Takano and Yui Hirasawa from K-ON! ^_^ Those aren't really difficult cosplays and they're friends! =]

Oh, and your pics are not showing.

Now you need to fix your friend's picture ^_^U XD

Hmmmm I'll suggest you any schoolgirl anime, those aren't hard to make =) Maybe Amu Hinamori (her) and Nadeshiko Fujisaki (you) from Shugo Chara!?

Agh, I'm not used to this website yet, the tiny editing window was strange they should ALL be fixed now. The Shugo Chara characters are cuuutee!
