Hello,
I'm looking for cosplay ideas...due to financial constraints, I can't afford wigs, so I'm looking for characters with my same hair style--chin length, dark blonde/brownish hair. ANY suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks so much!!

I'm not sure because I don't know what you look like, but Rakka from Haibane Renmei is my suggestion. Plus, the costume would be pretty cheap.

Maybe you might be a little more specific to a genre you would like to cosplay?

Although without any information, here are some ideas... (Some might need a little bit of recoloring.)

Lilith/Riris (Megami Paradise)
(This is WAY under-cosplayed...)

About half of Shiro Masamune's characters...

I can't think of many characters other than the over-cosplayed Yuna, ... Uh, maybe if you want to do a boy and cut your hair a bit (his hair isn't that short) you can do Kira from Gundam Seed? There are lots of characters with brown hair, so I'm sure you'd decide on one soon. :O

Edit: Oh yeah, and Kirika from Noir! She's awesome, but her clothes are kind of boring.

Bangs or no? Some characters with bangs wouldn't look so good without them. And um.. does it matter if we list males or females or both? ^_^;

I just hope you'll check out these animes or games and not only cosplay something because they have your hair. Even a character with a similar style would look okay if you didn't have the exact color.

Perhaps Selphie from Final Fantasy 8 if you're okay with curling your hair at the ends...

Oh, I don't really care about genre...I'm familiar with most anime, games, movies, and J-pop/J-rock singers.

I'm planning to cut my hair just before the con (to chin-length...right now it's about shoulder-length) to cosplay Jill Valentine from RE3, so I could do bangs or no. Either way.

I'd really prefer female characters...I'm a little too...busty to cross-play. *^^* And I'd rather not bind myself for an eight-hour convention day....:P

Thanks for all of these ideas!!! You're helping me so much!!! I truly appreciate it. Hopefully when I finish my costume (whichever I choose...) I can post pics of it. (I feel a little silly now...I totally blanked when trying to think of brown-haired characters, and look at all the ones you all are coming up with!! :love: )

Thanks again, everyone!!!

You could add a ponytail extension and go as Peorth from Ah! My Goddess. There's also Megumi (I think that's her name), Keiichi's sister, but she's not really obvious or well known, so it might not even look like you're in costume.

Possibly Rally from Gunsmith Cats if you could style it properly, but it might be difficult.

Cardcaptor Sakura would work, probably. And she has tons of adorable outfits.

Okuni from Samurai Deeper Kyo, near the end of the series, has a short bob-like cut (no bangs). It's really tough finding images of her, though, I think.

If you like cutsey stuffs, there's always Sakura from Tsubasa or Card Captor Sakura
And that girl from the new Inu-Yasha video game.....I think her name is Ayane(?) no one has cosplayed her yet.
You also might be albe to pull off short-hair Garnet from ffix, but I'm thinkinhg your hair is too light.

Hikari/Kari from Digimon... also Sora and Juri/Jeri now that I think about it. ^^

You could do Sheik from Legend of Zelda and bleach your hair just a little to get the color right.

Inaho from Master Mosquiton has chin length hair but it's red.. but brown would look okay I think, if you had her outfit right. ^_^;

Whip from The King of Fighters '99-2003. She's got short brown hair and a sexy military uniform. :D Similar to Jill Valentine, I suppose.

Yumi from Chobits. Short brown hair but you'd have to style it for her curl, AND she's busty. XD She has this one cute outfit with a beret that fans of the series would recognize, or there's her Yorokonde work outfit.

Sailor Astarte from Seramyu (the Sailormoon live-action musicals)? @_@;;;

Oh! Fuu from Magic Knight Rayearth. XD She just has a bit of curl in her hair, but it is short and brownish blondeish.

In Soul Calibur, Seung Mina's 2nd player has short brown hair. Normally she has her hair tied back though, so even that could work for you if you had an extention. ^^ Also, from the same series, Xianghua has very short cute brown hair and tons of outfits. ^^ That would be easier than Seung Mina, actually. XD; But I hearts Mina so she came to mind first. x.x;

Makoto from Street Fighter III. @_@

Lots of J-pop singers. Aya Matsuura tends to have short hair these days, and an amazing amount of outfits. Maki Goto had short hair for a while, too. Um... yeah. ^_^;

That's all I can think of for now that hasn't been named.. at least off the top of my head.
