I totally had a huge post all outlined for you and stuff, and then my browser refreshed. T__T Long story short, I think the shape of your face and your eyebrows suits you for a lot of the serious looking characters... like Vincent Valentine from Final Fantasy would be a good one. As for hats, and your face, Uruhara from Bleach would look nice! Those are both really mainstream. ^^;; I usually try to suggest more cult hits, but it seems like I can't really think of any.
What about for ME?
Pics or it didn't happen!:
You can see my basic facial details from the pictures.
As for body, I'm pretty stumpy. Pear shaped, even. Flat and tiny up top, all weird and curvy for the bottom half. And I'm only 4'10. The combination of my body, my face, and unfortunately for pickier cosplayers, my skin tone, makes it a bit difficult for me to find a character I can really SEE myself cosplaying as without criticizing myself. I'm a perfectionist. ^^;;
So I've been really restricting myself to looking at characters that match my size and personality... Konata, Shana, Taiga (reluctant to try it! She's just WAY too "doll like" for my wider jaw!)... and it's not like I have anything wrong with that! In fact, I'm chill about anything. I can wear contacts, albeit I have to wear my glasses too (and take them off for pictures), and I LOVE to wear wigs.
So for me, if anyone has something to suggest that maybe I haven't seen before, but still matches my size (pretty small...) and face (an awkward mix between strong and chub-chub fluffiness), I would be eternally grateful! Meow!
