Chick with a buzz cut!

So, I have a buzz cut, and I love it.

I recently decided to go to Otakon this summer after previously deciding not to do cons this year. (Dammit, Yoko Kanno, screwing up my plans!! haha) I'm so in love with my short hair right now, I wanted to see if I could find some fun cosplays to really make use of it, since the really short hairstyles are often very difficult to do with a wig, and not a lot of girls are willing to cut their hair this short! (I certainly never thought I would be!)

My hair's at about 1/2" right now, so I could theoretically grow it a bit longer by the time of the con, and I am not at all opposed to dyeing it any color (it's naturally the brown you see in my profile pic, but I really mean I will dye it ANY color, because what's the worst that could happen? I fry it and have to buzz it all off again? OH NO!! ...Wait, I love having buzzed hair!).

I'd love to find a female character for this, but I'd be fine cosplaying a dude, too. I'm really not picky.

I just want to show off my hair! ...Or nearly-lack-thereof, as the case may currently be, haha!

My first thought was Olga Gurlukovich from Metal Gear Solid 2 (her Tanker getup, but with more bra and less pit hair, because even I have comfort levels). But I would love some more ideas!

And they don't need to be kept to anime/manga/games of Japanese origin, either! SUGGEST AWAY! And have fun with the fact that you very well may be able to convince me to do crazy things to my hair.

Thanks a ton <3
don't feed the yao guai!

What about Sailor Uranus, Rokka Shimao from Natsuyuki Rendezvous, Gaara from Naruto or Ryohei Sasagawa from Reborn?

Zoro from One Piece! There's also an artwork made by the creator with the main cast genderbent. Here: http://luffypuffy.deviantart.com/art...nder-316368439

And female Germany from Hetalia/Nyotalia also has short hair.^^

Greetings Sevin-K,

Your hairstyle sounds really awesome! Here are some ideas:

I think a Pokemon gijinka could be really cool with a haircut like that. Immediately Sandshrew or Butterfree come to mind, but I'm sure there are TONS of other Pokemon that could rock that style!

A female Norn character from GW2. Not quite a buzz cut, but some of the styles involve very little-to-no hair. (There is a bald female model, which I think is pretty darn cool!) And you could pick out whatever clothing set you'd like to do from the game with the model - http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Phys...ppearance/Norn

As far as male characters are concerned, I can't think of any offhand with a true buzzcut, but maybe Akihiko from Persona 3? - http://megamitensei.wikia.com/wiki/Akihiko_Sanada

Hope these ideas helped the brainstorming a bit! Hope you have a great time with your costume!

With the exception of braids at the sides, Mikoto Minagi from Mai Hime has rather short hair

My first thought was Jack, via Mass Effect 2--she's got a buzz cut, and she's a pretty neat character!

Her ordinary outfit is uncomfortably scandalous, but her loyalty outfit isn't too bad. It'd take a lot of work to paint on all of her tattoos, though.
