Hello, I'm fairly new to cosplaying (only really ever watched friends do it). I am going to dragoncon in August and really want to dress up. I want to do a really good job because my friend is going with me is making an AMAZING Master Chief suit.

My problem is that I have NO idea who I look like or where to start. I just figured I'd start here for ideas.

These are both really recent pics so I hope they will do.

Really need advice

Hi, I'm incredibly new to cosplaying. I have only seen my friends dress up for cons and pulled off a pretty decent Gale from The Hunger Games for the midnight movie premier. I got invited to Dragon Con and I am so excited! I want to have an amazing costume as my friend is making this incredible Master Chief suit.

I figured the best way to start would be to figure out who I look like.

Those are both fairly recent pics so I hope they help!

So, I'm new to cosplaying, and I really just need some ideas.

My hair is brown and curly, when straight it's kinda at my mid-back, I'm a bit above average height, and of average build. I've got brown eyes, and a fairly long face. I'm willing to wear a wig, and somewhat reluctant to wear contacts, although I will if I need to.

I know the quality's a bit low, but there's a picture of me.

I'm about 5'8.5, and p much anything is totally okay... I just can't think of anything! I tend to steer away from the super well-known cosplays though. I like tricky things, nostalgia! Stuff you don't see that often! c:

You're Jean Gray. That's all there is to it.

Also another question is if you're comfortable with contacts or anything.

Picture

Height: 183cm or about 6 feet
Weight: 67kg, but not very athletic
Wig: Wouldn't be a problem.
Glasses: I absolutely need them, but i guess colored contacts wouldn't be a problem
Age: 17 Years old

I dont really care if it's an anime, manga or video game character, im open for anything except crossdressing.

And as always: Have a nice day!
I could see (sorry about not being able to find characters with glasses ._. you can just take them off for pictures)Suzaku Kururugi from Code Geass
Kain from Vampire knight

If I didn't catch you yet I'll get to you but I have to go byee

My hair is brown and chest length with bangs.
I am 4'9 and have a small build, but large chest and hips with small waist. I weigh about 107 lbs.
very pale with a few freckles
My natural eyes are a yellow-green, and i am a little chubby in my face.
I can wear contacts and wigs. ( this is actually preferred)
and my budget is to keep in under 200 dollars!

Here is a facial photo without makeup

http://s1311.photobucket.com/user/ca...tml?sort=3&o=4

I don't have a good quality full body shot, but I am working on getting one.

The cosplay I have done in the past are Ai Enma and Yui Hirasawa.

A few Ideas I have are Sakine Meiko (vocaloid), Chii (Chobits), Missha ( Katawa Shoujo), Rena (Higurashi)

Thanks!!
Do you mind me saying but I think you have such a cute face >w< hope that isn't too awkward lol anywho
I think you would make a cute Nia Tepperin from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann if you'd have any trouble searching for a dual colored wig arda has some in nia blend except they can be a little bit pricey depending on everything but I'm not sure for contacts but if you could find some it would look great
Also Tanya from Black Cat
Sayori from Vampire Knight * although the school uniforms are kind of not so fun to make :P *
Yui from K-On!
I think most of them are reasonably simple and could probably be pulled off in that type of budget

Thhakura - Little Sister from Bioshock, I think.

Rosesarered~ Uhm sowwy but I have to say you sound very beautiful. ^^ If you straighten your hair the first thing that came to mind was Ange Ushiromiya from Umineko no Naku Koro Ni (she has a lot shorter hair though! >w<), but if you wear a wig anyone from Umineko would work very well <3 (Beatrice would be gorgeous oAo) With such nice proportions I'd think anyone you want from Final Fantasy, and omg. Megurine Luka. :3
