suggestions for a short pear shaped girl?

As the title says, I'm short (5'0") and I'm pear shaped, so smaller chest, but major hips/thighs and all that.
I've been out of the loop of the cosplay community for a while but I'm getting back into it now. I'm not super familiar with all the newer anime out there (i'm 10000% open to suggestions) but any recommendations for characters would be great!
But stats:
height: 5'0"
body: petite pear shaped (31.5-23.5-37 bust-waist-hip)
hair: dark brown, short angled bob
eyes: hazel/green (i wear glasses, but they won't affect the cosplay at all)
other: I'm not comfortable showing a ton of skin, some is okay, but not like just a bikini.
difficulty isn't an issue, I'm good at sewing and know quite a few people who can help me with props, if need be.

here's some pics of my face and full body to get an idea of what I look like.

i wouldnt concider you pear shaped
its an extreame example and probably a bit offensive
but pear shaped is more like the mcdonalds character grimmace
(where your body shape is more triangular)

id say your more straight framed or slightly hourglass

so your a little short, honestly i dont see that as any barrier
to going as anything from sailor moon to zelda or anything else really

could do elizabeth from bioshock infinite,
or snow white (from the game app final fable, for a twist)
rinoa from finalfantasy 8, garnet FF 9 or yuna from FF X-X2

honestly i think you just have a little self-consiousness happening
(something i think everyone has a bit of, its nerves, its part of the human experiance)
but you should definately not be ...
("ashamed" is a bad word for it but its the only word the keeps comming to mind)
your pretty as you are and theres nothing to be worried over

look at the things your interested in pick a character and have fun with it
like i said, i dont think you have anything to worry about figure wise

Yeah, I guess you got me there I'm a bit self conscious, I guess I'm still worried about the "die-hard" cosplayers that I used to run into on forums like this a few years back. (that would give everyone sh*t for not being the "perfect" looking/shape for a character...)
Though I am very pear shaped, petite, but still definitely not straight figure. I guess you are right that it doesn't matter much (but like i said before i guess i'm nervous about the old attitude i used to experience) thank you for being nice about it all though!

Thank you for the suggestions (I love bioshock, not sure why i didn't think to do a cosplay of elizabeth! but that's definitely on my list now)

[insert requisite "cosplay who you like regardless of body type" message]
Judy Hopps from Zootopia (real rabbits are pear-shaped, if you've ever seen one sit up on its hind feet you'll see)
Or the Surprisingly Curvaceous Pirate from The Pirates: Band of Misfits.

Hey there fellow pear! I would suggest any of the female characters from the 3DS game Bravely Default. The sprites in that game have small upper bodies and rather plump thighs and hips.

Those are basically my measurements! I suggest Sheik. The thigh armor disguises thicker legs, and the shoulder/arm amor on top can be padded to even out your appearance.

yea, we all encounter some elitist pricks on occasion,

cant say ive seen much of that here on coscom

if it makes you more comfortable, anything with a loose fit long dress
makes lower body curves less or more emphesized (depends on cut and where you place the waistline)

anything with armour can help reshape your silloette

i think cosplay is a nice fun way to help feel more comfortable
in ones own skin (both in acceptance of our bodies, and as in mental outlook)

thats what im using it for

The girls from Bravely Default and Bravely Second are on the shorter, pear shaped side.
