Bigger guy cosplay suggestions please

I am a big guy 6'5 short hair (practically bald)

Looking to cosplay but can't really decide on what I would generally like to stay away from wigs (I think ide look silly in one) UNLESS the character has a mask ... I am a chubby guy built like a football player.... want to find something flattering to my bodytype

I don't wanna end up limiting myself to fatter characters because all i see in that category are characters im not interested in at all..

any suggestions?

I usually suggest non anime character like King Pin (Spiderman) or something with bad ass armor like a Judge (FFXII) for large guys.
I've noticed that pyramid Head (Silent Hill) tends to be a common cosplay for beefier guys too!

There's always Mario or Wario. They are well-known characters that work well for big guys. And since they wear hats, you don't have to get a wig.

When you said bigger character. I thought maybe if you like you could look after characters from Dragon Ball. They are often buff and fits well to bigger guys. At Uppcon10 I saw a Vegeta and Goku and both those was bigger guys. Looked really good.

If you don´t like Dragon Ball then I might later come up with some more suggestions.

Ooh, I bet you could be a good Jet from Cowboy Bebop! He has a little more hair than you, and the costume might be a challenge, but it could look awesome. ^^

Pippin from Berserk, Armstrong/ from FMA or even Sig Curtis Izumi's Husband, Kikuchiyo- Samurai 7, ooooo throw in a second vote for Jet from Cowboy beebop! Umm...

Really should race matter? and as for wig. if someone has one... just forgo it. I've seen plenty of people slip by without a wig to match their character so really? wig ...dont like wearing one dont bother.

That's my 2 and some odd change for now.
