^^^here's me. In case the link doesn't work, I'm quite pale with looong auburn hair that matches my eyes.
I'm 5'5'' and in relatively good shape, being a dancer and hurdler.
I'm a beginner, so I don't want an excessively complex costume. I'd prefer my cosplay to be unique-looking -- something people will be able to recognize right away, so no sailor uniform unless the character has some trademark hairstyle or face paint or something.
I'm not against crossplaying, although I think I look a bit too feminine to do so unless the male character is very feminine as well.
I feel more comfortable behind a mask, but I get claustrophobic easily so it would have to be either made of cloth or cover only part of my face.
