Looking for good skinny cosplay idea!!

I have been having the hardest time finding a cosplay that would suit my body size. I am 6' tall and i am fairly skinny as well (only 155 which is light for my height). If anyone has any ideas or suggestions then plz post a link to a picture of them or at least leave the characters name =) thx guys

Are you looking for tall thin characters then? I personally don't think the character has to be the same height as you. It's more important to like the character.

welll most anime characters are thin ._.
So I don't think that'll be a probably, as for tall characters...
I can think of a couple from the top of my head

KHR - Dino, Mukuro, Yamamoto (most adult TYL characters)
Kuroshitsuji - Sebastian?
Pandora Hearts - Jack, Gil
Axis Power Hetaila - Russia
Ouran High Host Club - Mori
etc. etc. =)

Do you have a preference for cosplaying male or female characters?

"Tall and thin" would go for most (not all) characters in Code Geass. The character design tends towards noodle boys. *example*

Hellsing also has freakishly tall thin characters. Anderson and the Major aren't thin, and Seras and Schrodinger aren't tall, but other than that...you've got a lot to choose from! Alucard, Integra, Walter, Rip Van Winkle, Pip, Maxwell, etc.

There are some taller characters in Fullmetal Alchemist. Falman, Havoc and Scar come to mind, though Scar is hardly...thin. *image*

Yoko and Kamina from Gurren Lagann, too. *image*


Basically, what are you looking for beyond "willowy"?

I second all of these! As long as you are willing to crossplay, that is.

I'd also like to add:

Dokugakuji from Saiyuki:

Liz from Soul Eater (the tall one):

Well just as a side note you get people cosplaying characters that dont' suit their body size so it don't realy matter.

i dont think your height matters that much ^^

its best that you keep away from child characters or ones that are known for being short, but if you DID want to cosplay those then your height shouldnt be any restriction.
cosplay whoever you want to cosplay! ^^
