Suggestions Please

Hello, I'm kind of new to cosplaying, but I have lots of experience with costuming for LARP and plays. However, I've been sort of intimidated by the amount of ideas I have for characters to cosplay, while also feeling like I don't really fit them.

I'm 5'6" and 150 lbs. I have a pretty athletic build, dark eyes, and brown hair. I'm willing to cut my hair or even go with colored contacts.

Here's a picture of me. http://imgur.com/lvcIvEv

I love fantasy/history and sci-fi games, movies, and books. Game of Thrones, some anime, all kinds of games I'm into.

Thanks in advance if you decide to help!!

The first thing that came to mind when I saw your picture was that you would look good in a military uniform from FullMetal Alchemist.
If I was a cosplay, a perfect cosplay, how would you know it was really me?

The Thing (1982)
(the missing word was 'imitation')

You mentioned cutting hair, but what about wigs?

GoT would be a natural place to start (since you mentioned that in particular). You could easily pull off one of the Lannisters with your natural hair. Maybe also consider LOTR, if the medieval fantasy thing strikes your fancy?

I must admit you remind me a bit of Alistair from Dragon age? c: It's some sort of medieval fantasy as well

Merrill - Dragon age 2 (10%)

Looked at the pic, and first thing that came to my mind was for you to choose someone from Dragon Age. Maybe go for a Warden cosplay.
