You could do really dark skinned characters, such as Loran Cehack from Turn A Gundam. He's got a lot of outfits (even two dresses. XD). I'd send you a screenshot, but there's practically nothing out there, certainly not of his outfits.

Blaigh, try this oekaki (it's depicting four outfits of his) http://poteto.shimoyake.net/advanced/pictures/187.png

If the link doesn't work, got to http://poteto.shimoyake.net/advanced. Tis image 187.

-Edit- Ack, the first link won't work. *sighs* Damn...now I wanna do Loran...but sadly I'm not tan enough. ;_;

Just noticed - my avatar is also a piccy of Loran (as "Laura"). There's a reference, although he doesn't normally look like that. XD

Oh yeah.....I almost forgot...Sir Integral Wingates Hellsing.
I was going through the Hellsing Manga and she's drawn pretty tanned in the first couple of Issues.

Someone did cosplay Hild. I spotted her at AX and Comic-con last year and since I was cosplaying Urd at both, we did a happy demonic spazzy family reunion jig each time.

You could be a beautiful Sailor Pluto! If I'm not mistaken, she's got darker skin than everyone else in the manga... I'm not sure about the anime, though.

Tanned? Some of those people you mentioned are a little darker than tanned. but if you're thinking of darker charaters there's always Sailor Pluto :)

Just have a look here, you may find a few ideas :

http://minicosplay.free.fr/MiniCosplay/

(yeah, the site is in French. Lena's a girl with tan, who only chooses characters with tan... and she does great with every costume she does. She's not done these many costumes, but hell she's good, and she's famous for them).

Ashura... first post... Er, maybe I could introduce myself ?
Mh, I'm not much of a cosplayer myself, much more a cosplay fan. I did a couple of costumes a few years ago, but for two years I've been filming cosplays in every French con I can attend (which is basically all the major ones). Got a website with photos and a few videos, that needs a lot updating but hey I'm lazy (that's probably why I gave up as a cosplayer). I'm currently editing a false documentary about cosplayers ; a friend of mine - big cosplayer, in terms of number and size of costumes - wrote it and directs it and acts in it; it's a parody of all these alarmist documentaries about minor subjects French journalists are very good at doing, and it's very, very funny, and acted by a bunch of cosplayers ^^

I love her cosplay too! She makes the perfect nadia, and I love the Charazard costume!

As for the revealing costumes, my guess is that most tanned or dark skinned people are mostly associated with island or African countries where it's usually a lot hotter, therefore, less clothing. ^-^;;

Sue from Argento Soma
Claudia from Robotech? o.O;

Both of those have military-type uniforms, so not so much on the revealing leather. ^^

Himiko from Get Backers: http://www.dakkanya.net/View/Screenshots/ep10/sgb-ep10_himiko003.jpg She has such lovely tan skin (see her next to another character for an idea of how much darker she is than the rest of the cast).

If you want to do some crossplay that no one's ever done before, Himiko's late brother Yamato would work, too: http://www.dakkanya.net/View/Screenshots/ep34/sgb-ep34_yamato002.jpg

And then there's Maria, a Spanish character with tan skin from Get Backers' manga. I can't get a scan right away, but if you are interested in a Latin character let me know. (Note: she is very busty and has a very revealing costume, so you should be comfortable about that if you are interested in playing her.)

Konnichi wa

"Love Hina" characters, I forget the volume but they have expressed themselves as tanning themselves and there's one of the girls who has tanned skin throughout the manga (the comic belongs to my friend Robert ><) but also there's "Ah, My Goddess Urd" there's then the sorcerer hunters Chocolate Misu and Tira Misu who tan their skin in one of the episodes...I realy can't think of any others yet besides Dark Rose from .// Hack. Now there has been a lot of controversy over the yugioh characters Malik Ishizu Rishid but they are of ethnic color and not tan (too much of a yugioh and egyptian fan) but egyptians come in a range of colors in certain parts of egypt from the lightiest colored skin to the darkest skin color but they are people of color by far.
Hope this helps.
