I know that Quatre from Gundam Wing plays the violin and there was a girl in Dot.hack//Liminality...I think her name was Mai. If I see any other characters, I'll post them up.

hijiri - yami no matsuei. i am going to do a cosplay of him in future.
unfortunately i do not have a picture...

he kinda looks like hisoka (http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=589265) but with black hair and a black japanese school boy outfit (i think he plays a strad).

above is link to my hisoka (also from yami no matsuei), so maybe that will give you an idea of what he looks like. i think hisoka and hikiki are the same height, at least its a start - i'll try to find a picture of hijiri for you.

hisoka has green eyes and light hair. hijiki has blue/dark blue eyes and black hair.

there is a story arc, 3 episodes where hisoka and company go to a music school to banish a demon, and hijiki plays a violon "the devils trill" beautiful piece on a possessed violin, my sister plays the violin so when i saw this anime i just had to have it and give it to her....

glad you play violin well, i went to music school throughout grade school/high school (so that's like forever) and actually got into julliard but didn't go...

Actually, Hijiri has dark brown hair and green eyes - one of which is a cat eye. He had cornea surgery and recieved a contract with the devil which is actually embedded in the cornea.

He is almost the exact same as Hisoka Kurosaki, a main character in Yami no Matsuei, so you can use him as reference as well. The only noticeable difference is the dark brown hair and the single cat eye.

Hijiri Minase:

If you know Fruits Basket, (and i hope this doesn't become a spoiler to anyone) but apperently Momiji does play; i found a quick description of him with a few pics of him with it here if you don't know the series.

http://www.momichi.net/momiji/violinist.html (http://www.momichi.net/momiji/violinist.html)

I'll try to keep thinking k?

edit; just after i posted this i thought of what was said about rei and checked; I found a picture of Kaoru playing,
http://www.animetrain.com/NGE/kaw10.jpg
and also i never ended up seeing the end of eva, but i think i remember someone saying something about that... it seems familiar. I know that shinji plays cello(?) and i've seen a katsucon skit with a rei violinist, and it worked realy well; you should be able do that if you want with-out a problem. (i'm sorry i can't find a picture, but Death Com covered those skits i mentioned, it's in the 1st file (1st skit) of the 2005(?) coverage.

It's great you play, and that there are so many options available for it. (used to but it was too many years ago^ ^) Good Luck! ^^

Canaria from Rozen Maiden: Traumend. She's the one in the bottom right corner here (http://www.animeforever.it/viewtopic.php?t=2746), with the parasol. She's a rather silly character, and her violin is her weapon.

Momo, Momiji's younger sister, also plays the violin as well. http://www.fruits-basket-temple.com/pages/perso/chara_momo.jpg (I couldn't find any larger images really, as she is a minor character.)


There's also Hamel from Violinist of Hameln.

the hard part would be making the GIANT violin Hamel holds. Or I can use a Base. No, That's to heavy. I guess I'll keep looking.

you could use a full size viola or if you wanted to carry around something heavy, you could use a 1/2 size or 3/4 size cello... but that'd probably get totally annoying after a while

Quon from RahXephon plays the violin.
http://absoluteanime.com/rahxephon/quon.htm

I'd recommend watching ALL of RahXephon before considering cosplaying as Quon, though.

Seiji Amasawa from Whisper of the Heart. Thats all I can think of

You really don't have to go as someone at all from an anime. You could create your own type of character and be original while still being able to play your violin.

What about Henrietta from Gunslinger Girl? She obviously carries around a violin case (though it holds her weapons). Also, she is seen playing it sometimes.

There's also Owl from Godchild (aka Count Cain). There aren't many images of him though.

I like the idea of Madoka. Hm.... Maybe i'll make her costume, I'm always excited making a new costume.

This isn't an anime, but in the video game Project Justice, a character named Yurika uses her violin to fight.

well, there's Hino Kahoko and Len Tsukimori
from "La Corda d'oro." Hino's a girl and Len's a guy.
They both play the violin in the anime.

There is also Fou Lafine from B't X. He actually uses the violin arc as a weapon. He appears at ep 4 I believe at the anime in case you wanna check it out.
