My first time cosplaying I chose a character that I thought I looked like.
Same colour hair length/colour,same eye colour(definitely not the same physique >_< ).

Everybody thinks that I look like Fuu from Samurai Champloo when I cosplayed her.
Most people didn't even realise that I was wearing a wig and thought it was my natural hair

When I had long hair, I was told I looked like every female character with long brown hair ever. :U My fiance insisted I was an identical twin to Rin from Fate/Stay Night. http://www.cosplayhouse.com/images/D...er_01-2-06.jpg

I naturally look like Telma from Zelda:Twilight Princess...Dark Skinned and Plus Sized..ain't much characters I look like. Which is why I just make them dark..then I look like em more. I naturally am like Euphemia from Code Geass if you add 130lbs to her and darken her skin. Am more like Orihime from Bleach naturally personality wise.

According to just about everyone I ask, I look like Kairi from Kingdom Hearts.

Haven't actually cosplayed her yet, but she's on my list!

When I first started cosplaying, I had the right colour and length hair for Tohru from Fruits Basket, except my hair didn't have bangs.

Once I cut my hair and dyed it to my current colour, I ended up looking like Eiji from Prince of Tennis. My hair even flips like his, and it's natural!

For the longest time, I used my natural hair for Liz, from Soul Eater - except straightened. But I just hacked it off this last summer and dyed it bright ginger, so I had to get a wig. XD But the hair was the reason I started cosplaying her. (Well, plus I was able to get a group together for it, too. =p)

If my hair were a couple inched shorter, I would apparently be a perfect real Yoh (Shaman King) My hair is naturally a dark brown, and I don't give it as much attention as I use to X3

Talim from Soul Calibur. I used my natural hair which was also the perfect length at the time (I let it grow since then).

I've never encountered a character that I look a lot like. I think I can pull off pretty much any character I cosplay, though...lots of contouring makeup really helps with that, haha. (Well, I don't think I can pull off Trisha [Catherine] very well, and I'm way too pale and skinny for Ayla (Chrono Trigger), and certain characters I don't look particularly like but can still pull off.)

I've been told that I make a really good Maj. Kusanagi (like, people stopping me in the halls of a con days after I've worn that costume just to tell me that I make a really good Maj. Kusanagi), but when I cosplay her, I feel like I look too much like myself? Maybe that's the point, haha. Obviously, I still need wigs and stuff for her, seeing as I have long, light brown hair and she has short, dark purple hair, and I don't think my face looks much like hers, but I've been told by multiple people that I make a really good Major. I personally think that I make a really good Julia (Cowboy Bebop) and that is probably the only time that I have factored who I look like from a series into choosing a costume. I don't look too much like her normally, but I think that with the wigs and makeup and everything, I can pull her off really well.

All of my cosplays require wigs, and I tend to wear a lot of makeup to change my face to look more like the character.

I think I tend to pull off elegant and/or serious characters better than any other type, but maybe that's just my character preference showing through. (I certainly feel I pose better for characters that require "look stoic" or "look wistfully into the distance" than for characters that require "look cute" or "look playful.")

OH! thought of one, but I haven't done it.
With my glasses on, I look a lot like Katherine McBride (Catherine), but I can't stand her character, so I wouldn't cosplay it. If Doom's Bride wore clothing, then maybe someday I'd consider doing that... (I guess I can always do a tattered wedding dress?)

Sadly no.. I'm still looking for them! I wish I could say that I look like Megara from Hercules... but that woman is too damn stunning!

I have with my costume of Lupo. We both wore our hair the same way and look identical, so I just had to cosplay her

My first cosplay was of Lyra/Kotone from Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver versions because I looked like her.
One time at a convention someone even came up to me and told me my Lyra was the best Lyra they had ever seen, even though mine was a quickly thrown together closet cosplay. Apparently I just looked like the character enough to excuse all the blatant inaccuracies of the costume.

I'm also currently working on a Crumbelina Di Caramello cosplay for the same reason. I just didn't want to buy another wig so I could be one of the other Sugar Rush racers.
