I'll see if I can get any suggestions, I have a few that I want to try and do, but to get them completely accurate I'd have to get contacts and I'm very wary about that. So I was wondering if anyone could think of anything that might work with my natural hair color (strawberrry blond) and eye color (hazel/brown).

face/hair

Body type/previous cosplay

I am female, 22 years old, white, and with brown hair and brown-green eyes. I'm 5 feet, 6 inches tall, and have an hourglass figure. I like some anime, but also love live-action film, DC, and Marvel. Sadly with the three cosplays I've always wanted to do, I look nothing like the characters (Jareth from "The Labyrinth", Harley Quinn "Batman", and Erik "Phantom of the Opera".) I'm open to other options, and would love to rock a cool cosplay and look good. Any suggestions would be most welcome!

Also here's a picture of me from when I had long hair. I don't want my short hair to limit me in cosplay. I mean, there are wigs, right? Hahah.

You look a bit like Kiera Knightly.

Thankfully with phantom and Harley Quinn you can easily obscure your face. HQ in particular would be relatively easy, recognizable, and fun/comfy to wear. Your lips are actually very well shaped for Batman TAS version of HQ. Animated series Catwoman also works for your face shape.


I'd stay away from Jareth at all costs... as a first costume wig work, makeup and all the intricate details will be very difficult. Also jareth is one of those characters like jack sparrow etc where you absolutely must look like the character face and figure wise.

Hellooo. I thought I would give this a try and see if I can find some new cosplays to add to the list. I'm pretty much open to any idea as long as it's not too revealing. I make derp faces so I apologize in advance ^^;

PLEASE, FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY, COSPLAY JACK FROST.
You are one of the very, /very/ few that could actually pull it off. I would be forever attached to your leg if you did. 8,D


Alright, my turn. Behold, me!

I'd check out Aizen Sosuke from Bleach.
You wouldn't even have to wear a wig if you went as him, and his cosplay is rather simple.

Over all though, go as whichever character you like the most or would like to cosplay as.
You'll drive yourself crazy if you try to cosplay only characters you look like.

You could check out Jubilee from X-Men.
She may not be the most memorable character from the old X-Men cartoon, but you would definitely stand out among everyone else.
