For the record, I've always wanted to see someone cosplay "Killa" and "King Chappa" from Dragon Ball Z.
For me, I want to portray a character's appearance accurately in a cosplay and part of that (again, for me) means choosing a character who fits my body-type and skin color (Plus, I'm not really very knowledgable about makeup artistry, so we eliminate a few variable from the creative process that way). You gotta do you tho.
