I'm more of a video game person, but I can get into a series/movie/comic if it's interesting enough.
I can't use colored contacts just yet though. So if the eyes are what makes the cosplay, I can't really do it. I'm also 5'2" and 130lbs (it shows mainly in the tummy) so I don't intend to go jump into the belly shirts and skimpy outfits just yet. XD
I've only cosplayed as Saria from LoZ: OoT and RG Shiki from The World Ends With You. So please don't throw super complicated characters around either, please. :P
