Any help with cosplay ideas for a bigger girl

Any suggestions would be grateful. I'm a bigger woman (20-22). I'm looking for a cosplay that'll look good on me. I've been searching the internet the past few days for any other suggestions.

It's just left me a bit frustrated at how I love cosplaying but 99% of the characters to choose from are not built for a bigger woman. I understand I can wear anything but at the same time I still want to look GOOD in what I'm wearing.

I'm tired of Millie from trigun being my only real 'option' for 'good cosplay for bigger women'. I do feel I rock that costume but it doesn't change my frustration. It also doesn't stop me to much in cosplaying other characters as you'll see below.

My current cosplays:

Manga/Movie Millie from Trigun (my first cosplay done back in 2005, I still use it)
Casual Millie (pulled that up for a con in July, my coat would kill me then, both costumes I do have a Stun Gun)
Tashigi from One Piece (I have like 4 different variations of her)
Fem-Brook from One Piece (his first outfit, the design of the character was my brain child since there is no official Fem brook unlike the other Straw Hats. Can't wear it during the summer con, will kill me).
Chopper from One Piece (his first oufit)
Emerald from Sailor Moon R (this was a last minute cosplay, I had like 2 weeks, I'm proud still of the Y necklace she wears that I made)
Casual Sango from Inu Yasha (the boyfriend made her boomerag)
A 'Fem-Vash' from Trigun.

I like adding one new costume a year to the line up to keep things fun and fresh for myself. I go to at least two cons a year: One in April and one in June/July.

Here is me in Casual Millie (to give a photo of what I actually look like XD).

Sweet heart your beautiful! Don't be afraid, you'll look great in anything. I'd go with someone who's personality you really like. You can usually get away with even the most provocative cosplays with a little ingenuity. How about Tsunade from Naruto? If you're willing to dye your hair that'd look great.

Some ideas I've had:

*Sophie from "Anastasia" and Miss Kitty from "Fievel Goes West"
*Disney characters such as Cinderella's stepsisters and the Designer Disney doll versions of Queen of Hearts or Ursula.
*Queen Beryl or Nehelenia from Sailor Moon
*Catelyn or Melisandre from Game of Thrones/ASOIAF
*Formal version of a character

Integra Hellsing could work. You've almost got the hair too, if you're not into wigs..

I think you're rather cute, don't worry too much about what you wear. As another big girl, you have my sympathy. But here's some suggestions that may interest you:

Rangiku Matsumoto from Bleach
Almost anyone from Queen's Blade
Costumes for 2013:

Seras Victoria-Blood version

Characters that wear kimonos or yukatas might be of interest to you, if you're going for coverage while still being tasteful.

You always have the option of doing a gijinka cosplay too, and going that route gives you all kinds of freedom to toy with designs until you get something you like!
