Hi everyone!

So i've been going to cons for 6 years, and cosplaying Grell Sutcliff from Kuroshitsuji for 5 years (even now it's not completely finished nor as perfect as i would want the cosplay to be). I absolutely love Grell and started cosplaying him because i identified with him attitude-wise. I love doing Grell, but i've decided that i want to cosplay a little more seriously, and i want to do and make more costumes for more characters.
Now, i can't decide who the heck to cosplay. OTL
Kuroshitsuji -for me- trumps every other anime out there now!
I don't mind crossplaying and i'm not okay with skimpy outfits.
Suggestions please!
I have a couple pics i can show you guys too.
Facial: https://twitter.com/i/#!/grellopop/m...com%2FQUNDqZID
Body (with a steel-boned corset, im not actually that thin lol i wish!): https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphot...85922210_n.jpg

So any suggestions you guys have, please share them!

Alice in Wonderland.
She is the perfect combination of wide eyed innocent meets devious & reckless adventurer.

This version has a blue victorian ruffle dress, a brocade corset with a red heart on the front and even an incredibly elegant strait jacket!!
9" padlocks available too!!

Let's see how this works out, I haven't really cosplayed before, and I need some inspiration!

Age: 13 (I can easily play children and teenagers, obviously)
Body type: Petite, thin.
Height: 5'3
Weight: 85lb
Eyes: Very light brown, bordering on green (But I've worn contacts in the past and have no issue with it.)
Hair: Strawberry blonde.
Crossdressing: I'm fine with it!
Skin tone: Very pale.
Contacts/Wigs: Completely fine.

Aaaand here!

I don't really know if personality counts, but I'm pretty outgoing and open to all ideas. I'm actually an actress, I do stage and film, so I'm fine with getting into character.

Also, I don't know much anime (But feel free to suggest if you think I'd fit an anime character), I know more about western animation and Disney. I'm thinking of maybe trying Wendy from Peter Pan, but I'm making a list that perhaps you can help me with!

I'm needing a cosplay to match this wig. :3 I have a con coming up and a not finished Snow White costume. And buying a new, good wig isn't really an option finance-wise.


So, characters with short black hair and bangs? Preferably female.

I've already thought of Kiki from Kiki's Delivery Service, Mavis from Hotel Transylvania, and Chane from Baccano (with a little styling).

Any ideas?

Or for my real hair: http://www.mibba.com/data/images/pre...it-640x640.jpg

Helpful Ideas are always appreciated.

First time cosplayer for next A-kon in dallas next year and I need ideas on what to dress as. I have no clue.
I am Male 6'3 white.
Dark brown hair almost black.
Brown eyes.
Thin body.
And then my mustache and goatee are both decently long. My goatee is about 3-4 inches now and my mustache well not horrible long but I could easily do handlebars. Wanted to go for a Fu Man Chu. I think I spelled that correctly. I will put up a pick of me that is older while my hair was long. That is because by the time A-kon comes around my hair will be that length again. Yes its my wedding photo but yea divorced now. for about 3 years now. Any help will be appreciated and also if you want to be my friend and keep in contact as well send me a private message. Just consider this my introduction to you all as well because I tried twice to put up a thread in the intro to introduce myself and yea no gogo juice. Well look forward to speaking with most all of you fine people. Later

stickmichael: Why not cosplay The Mandarin? Buzz is he's going to be the villain in the next Iron Man movie. Timely!

Wow this thread is long ._.

This will be my first somewhat official cosplay. I've dabbled, but I want to make my own costume this time. I do not want to wear a wig, and I'd like something that works with my natural hair. I also don't feel comfortable showing my stomach (self conscious).

Gender: Female
Hair: Dirty Blonde
Eyes: Blue
Height: 5'6
Body type: Hourglass but with a larger chest.

Some photos for you: how my hair looks now,
and another hair/face look. I wouldn't mind getting my bangs back.
A body shot.
And another.
An idea of my eye shade (I'm on the right).

I was thinking of Winry from FMA, but I'm not happy with the default look. I was also thinking Nova from SC2, but I don't know how I'd feel wearing such a body-con outfit. Another choice is Sailor Venus, but my hair isn't nearly long enough. And lastly, Queen Cersei from Game of Thrones, but I don't know if I'd be down with having the whole incest shenanigans going on. There's a big event at the beginning of next term that my uni puts on, so I have a few months to get an idea and prepare it. I'm a quick worker since I'm used to sewing and creating things, so the time limit doesn't bother me.

Any suggestions are appreciated :3
