I was wondering what SU character I could do this year as back up, and it could be useful to have the second opinion of other SU fans!
most of my cosplays are based off my natural features, but I don't quite resemble any of the SU cast that strongly. Any suggestions? I was considering a cosplay of a cracked Lapis, but I'm not very good at body paint...
The good thing about SU cosplay is you don't really have to be great at body paint to do it. Now that it's been around for a few years there's plenty of tutorials for making arm socks, or even wearing fully body suits to cover most of yourself in an easy paint-free way, where you'd only have to paint your face and maybe a bit of your chest. You can also feel free to do characters without body paint at all, or if you're not comfortable with that you can design humanized versions of them that wouldn't need paint. So I wouldn't let the thought of body paint scare you off!
