For one that would rather burn wigs than wear them, and has actually spend valuable time looking through animes that have brunettes in them, I thank you. This is really helpful.

Good work!

heh i know what you mean. I know i missed the final fantasy characters but my main focus was on shorter brown hair

To find a character that has about shoulder lengh dark brown hair, curly or wavyish, and a female, would be amazing. I have found none. It could be that I don't know a lot of animes...but I dont know.

You can try Belle from Beauty and the Beast or Rogue from X-Men (90's cartoons). I personally would like to see someone do Rogue and really pull it off ;)

I'm... sort of brunette. My hair is kind of in between blonde and brunette, so I pick the characters I cosplay likewise. In fact, all the characters I've cosplayed so far have long blonde or brown hair.

I've never had a wig before, and they're expensive so I haven't been too interested in getting one. But now my problem is my hair is too long. I kind of wanted to crossplay Squall from FF8, and that simply won't work with my hair as long as it is. So for the first time I'm considering a wig. >_<

Here's a few I didn't see on the list (if it is on there and I missed it, sorry):

Chiyo Mihama (Azumanga Daioh)
Osaka/Kasuga Ayumu (Azumanga Daioh)
Tomo Takino (Azumanga Daioh)
Yomi Mizuhara (Azumanga Daioh)
Kagura (Azumanga Daioh)
Kaorin (Azumanga Daioh)
Yukari-sensei (Azumanga Daioh)
Selphie Tilmitt (Final Fantasy VIII)
Dagger/Garnet Til Alexandros (Final Fantasy IX)
Yuna (Final Fantasy X)
Kagura Sohma (Fruits Basket)
Motoko Minagawa (the president) (Fruits Basket)
Schiezska (Fullmetal Alchemist)
Konno Kitsune (Love Hina)
Mishima Reika (RahXephon)

You may want to go through your first post and edit it as suggestions are made, and possibly put them in alphabetical order (some of them seem alphabetized by show already)- it'd make it a lot easier to keep track of who's been suggested, and also easier to search the list.

Awesome. Are you going to do a list for male characters? (Since most of those seem to be female, just as I was scanning over it)

Michi
07-15-2005, 12:48 AM
x_X But it varies SO MUCH. I wouldn't cosplay a character with say, light sky blue hair with a dark royal blue wig. o_o; And also with bangs.. or no bangs.. and different lengths... straight or curly... @_@;;;

I mean, you listed characters from every color from dirty blondeish brown to ash grey brown. ^^;; I really wouldn't cosplay those with just any brown hair color. =/ But I'm picky. T_T;; I dye my hair between auburn and brown and don't really have too much of a problem finding characters with my hair...

Solaria
07-15-2005, 12:52 AM
Good point, but at least it's a good reference for people who might have NO idea where to start. *shrug* I definitely wouldn't cosplay a dark-haired brunette without a wig, but as the title states. . .this thread is all-purpose.

I cannot wear wigs. I have jet black hair. Many of my favorite characters are blondes. Even if I could wear wigs, I look terrible with blond hair. Do I care? No. I just do a brunette version of them. I won't wear any awards at any major cons anytime soon. I just wear the costumes cause I like the characters.

I was thinking about doing a male list as well, i made the list at first selfishly as you'll see the first dozen or so are short brown hair and guess who has short brown hair XD

I'm going to make it more organized, but I realized since I don't really know much about some of these characters, it would difficult since some I saw have different hair colors depending on picture... knowing me i'd get yelled at for it XD

well you're lucky because a lot of characters have dark brown-black hair. At first I wanted to include ALL colors but then I realized that would take up alotta room, haha. Maybe I'll make separate threads for that :D

you could do Tifa as she has dark brown hair, and you don't necessarily HAVE to have it down to your butt :D
you could also do your own version of a blacksmith from Ragnarok Online, there aren't enough of those :D
Vanessa (Ursula in Disguise) has shoulder length dark brown hair- see my cosplay lab for a reference pic (Kaeia)
Koganei (Diamond Lady) from Speedgrapher

Paine has...grey hair. o_O

correct, she goes under the list of people who have different depending on the picture.

Same with me about the blonde wig looking horrible. My gut feeling is that I would look horrible with one (I have dark features as well)..and I'm not about to spend $30+ on a wig that will look horrible once I get it. XD

pretty much all the girls (and guys, too, i suppose, except for itsuki...) from the fatal frame games have brown or brown/black hair. (does "topless" from FFIII? i need to lookt aht one up...) so that would be (i am not listing people like all the ghosts and such, only the main characters.):
miku hinasaki (fatal frame and fatal frame III) (female)
mafuyuu hinasaki (fatal frame) (male)
kirie (himuro?) (fatal frame) (f)
blinded (fatal frame) (f)
mio amakura (fatal frame II) (f)
mayu amakura (fatal frame II) (f)
sae/yae kurosawa (fatal frame II) (f)
mutsuki tachibana (fatal frame II) (m)
rei kurosawa (fatal frame III) (f)
kei amakura (fatal frame III) (m)
the pacifiers (fatal frame III) (f)

also, i believe flornia from legend of mana has reddish brown hair. also, there are many j-rock and j-pop cosplays that a brunette can do, because japaense people usually tend to have brown/black hair, unless it is dyed.

Mia/Nasuti from Ronin Warriors/Yoroiden Samurai Troopers has long brown hair, so does Sango from Inuyasha (a very dark brown). Minato from Nadesico has long light brown hair.

It's a lot easier to come up with guys who have brown(ish) hair I find:

Dryden (Escaflowne)
unnamed hero (Secret of Mana)
Hiro and Ronfar (Lunar: Eternal Blue)
Nash and Alex (Lunar: Silver Star Story)
Captain Tylor
Captain Harlock and Tochiro
Ashitaka (Princess Mononoke)
Naraku (Inuyasha)
Narsus (Heroic Legend of Arislan)

Etc. etc.

Charlotte from Vampire Hunter D has rather long brown hair. Setsuka from Soul Calibur three has brown hair pulled up in a geisha-style. Chai Xianghua from the same game has short brown hair with longer bangs on the sides. Jam Kuradoberi and May from Guilty Gear have rather long brown hair.

There's my two cents.

*waves tiny "Brunette!" flag*

I didn't see Yuki Miaka of Fushigi Yuugi on any of the lists, but I could be wrong.

Of course, if you cosplay Miaka, you'll be obligated to run around screaming, "Tamahome! Tamahome!"

And I will then be obligated to shoot you in the freakin' face. :)

This is a great thread!!

A lot of the Studio Ghibli heroes/heroines are brunettes. Someone's already mentioned Ashitaka from Princess Mononoke but to that I would like to add:

* Kiki (Kiki's Delivery Service)
* Chihiro (Spirited Away)
* Lin (Spirited Away)
* San (Princess Mononoke)
* Nausicaa (Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind)
* Asbel (Nausicaa)
* Sheeta (Laputa: Castle in the Sky)
* Pazu (Laputa)
* Satsuki (My Neighbour Totoro)
* Sophie (Howl's Moving Castle, before she's transformed)
* Shizuku (Whisper of the Heart)

That's all I can think of for now. Also, Nausicaa's hair could be considered more auburn/red than brunetted, but Chiyo Mihama from Azumanga Daioh was also on this thread somewhere, and brunette shades do include chestnut and redder tones.

gah ok I feel like super newbie but here we go... *deep breath*

CAN SOMEONE TELL ME WHO I LOOK LIKE SO I CAN GET AN IDEA ABOUT WHO I SHOULD COSPLAY AS?

*exhale* whoo ok now that thats out of the way:

I have never cosplayed before but I have friends who are way into it and I would be willing to go all out for my costume (short of plastic surgery lol)

ok this is me on 80's day at my school (if your wondering what the big hair and glasses is all about) and it was taken at like 5 in the morning at the bus stop so when i did the lightening thing on my computer it totally messed up my face:

http://img183.imageshack.us/my.php?image=dsc017082qv1.jpg

but I have this pic that my friend took of me lol dont ask about the random moody look, I was "posing"

http://img161.imageshack.us/my.php?image=dsc017362ku2.jpg

and this is another pic of my face, the resizing made it all fuzzy, sorry about that:

http://img285.imageshack.us/my.php?image=weqx6.jpg

Just to let you know:

height: 5'6''
age: 16
hair color: brunette/red/uhhh it kinda changes color depending on sun exposure
eye color: brown
hair length: short, shoulder length, layered
skin tone: pale...like ghost pale...like I live in florida, I'm 1/2 cuban, and that probably defies the laws of nature pale

I think I about covered it.

I've never been told I look like anyone specific, so if u have an idea about who I may look like... well that would be amazing ^.^

There's always Yue Ying from Dynasty Warriors 5. A nice choice for someone who has dark brown, straightenable, layered hair without bangs. The costume may give you a bit of pause though, it's a bit difficult to make. I would know.

Wow, I am so glad that I randomly stumbled on this thread by looking through other threads.

My fiance and I are going to ACen this year (my second time going but first time cosplaying). We're getting married 4 weeks after this years ACen so money is tight and I can't afford wigs right now.

I had already decided to go as Robin (WHR), but I was having trouble deciding on the second character.

I think I have it narrowed down to Belldandy (AMG), Sophie (HMC), or Nausicaa.

I should probably decide soon so I can start sewing!

O.o Does anyone know a charactor like this:

Dark brown wavy hair to elbows. Willing to style (straiten, curl, etc.)
Chocolate brown eyes.
About five feet tall, maybe a bit taller.

NOT willing to show:

-Knees or above.
-Stomach/lower back

I cut my hair a little shorter since these were taken, but mainly in the back so that shouldn't matter much.

Hi everyone, I'm new!

But I need help. I hate bangs and my hair is almost touching my shoulders, and very dark brown. I have icy blue eyes, about 5'7" and I need to find the right cosplay. This will be my first cosplay to a con!

This is me~

If you can't seem to find something brunette, I know a trick to temporarily change your eyebrow color so I can do wigs too. It'd mean so much if someone can help me.

Sincerely,
Tora

This thread hasn't been updated in a while, but it's super helpful, so I'm about to take every suggestion everyone has made and put them into order by gender, hair color, hair length, and alphabetized. I'll post a link to the new thread I'm going to make (so it's easier to wade through and look at the suggestions) once finished. No worries, I'll credit everyone who has made a suggestion somehow!! :D
