Yeah.. I want to cosplay a female from Bleach for ACEN 07.. and I need to start planning now. The thing is.. I have no idea who to be. I'm about 5'3.. have a big chest.. but my main problem is.. I'm a full figured girl.
I'm not against wigs.. but.. dressing skimpy.. i don't wanna do.. obviously. I would prefer a Shinigami.. but.. it doesn't have to be.. help me out?
You should try Unohana, the 4th division captain. ^__^ She's rarely done, which is a shame. And you could have a LOT of fun with that wig!

I agree with Tess, there needs to be more 4th Division love! :bigtu:
I am one of the few Unohana cosplayers out there and I will warn you that the wig is like a hairy noose. In hot weather it feels like wearing a furry hat, earmuffs and scarf. It's a toasty warm costume. She's a great character who many people overlook. I have much love for Unohana cosplayers.
I personally would love to see more Isane cosplayers. If she's a character you have been thinking about I support you 100%! There are more Unohanas than Isanes. I'm sure you'll make the day of a lone Unohana cosplayer (such as myself) since most of the other captains seem to have extra vice-captains while Unohana goes without even one.
Who ever you decide on have fun with it, that is the most important thing. :toothy:

Man.. i've been talking to alot of my friends.. and alot of them are suggesting matsumoto.. or Inoue.. I know I have a big chest.. but goodness sakes.. -.-
I think.. I may go with Shinigami Inoue... the wig for that hair won't be too bad because it's pulled back.. and I still get to wear a Shinigami outfit.. but if I REALLY feel daring I might got for matsumoto.. but I'm a bit too shy for that.. and if i change my mind before I get a wig.. I'll just be Rukia.. * nods to herself* Yes.. i think so.. yeah..
Thank you for your suggestions.. feel free to suggest more.. it's not final yet.. >_<

Honestly, I would advise against Matsumoto. While the shinigami outfit is certainly helpful for full-figured people (as you tend not to notice much, since EVERYONE looks a little hefty in them) Matsumoto is pretty much the one character who's shinigami outfit doesn't make her look that way in the least. She's really bursting at the seams, and it is very rarely pulled off well.
I mean, if you're considering her just because she has a big chest and you do as well, you should also consider that she's also a rather tall, big framed woman.
Honestly, you want to go with a costume that'll flatter you, neh?
To a degree, chosing a female shinigami to cosplay can be a very harsh thing, as they tend to have such a wide variety, you can very rarely narrow it down to a couple of similar looking characters.
There's a new character in the upcoming bleach movie that you might like to try. She's a shinigami with a hairstyle that's sort of a mix between Momo's and Renji's. She hasnt been cosplayed yet, and her hair is dark, so it might fit. I can't remember her name, but if you want to do a search the title is called "Memories of Nobody"

yeah.. I didn't want to do Matsumoto.. besides the cleavage.. I'm not a tall girl, at all. And the long blonde hair would look horrible on me. She's someone I can't pull off. I'm currently decided on Inoue in Shinigami clothes. Her hair is pulled back a bit.. and i don't think it will look too bad. However I'll certainly look into the movie girl.. it sounds interesting and might be easier to me than Inoue.. Thanks for the heads up.
