I prefer a natural anime look, but if makeup is necessary then I could give it a go.

Gender: Female
Height: On the shorter side; 5'1 but 4'11 from a distance. Weird, right?
Weight: Is this one really necessary? Last time I checked, 81 lbs
Nationality: Asian
Age: 14
Hair: A dark chocolate, seemingly black. Mid-back. Naturally curly at the ends
Eyes: Brown
Skin: Slightly tan
Other looks: I'm short, but proportionate. I just have a small body frame. My friends say my face actually looks like something from an anime. I'm rather flat-chested *sob*.

http://fc09.deviantart.net/fs70/i/20...it-d4l0sfy.jpg
__________

Wigs: No
Contacts: No
Glasses: Sure
Crossplay: My face is a bit feminine for it (as people say), but if there's a girly-ish enough looking guy out there then sure
Revealing: ....No thank you
Sewing skills: Meh. I prefer the glue-and-staple methods xD

Thanks for helping!
Bumpity again! (With included pictures. Finally found some not-so-nasty ones)

Along the cute lines again, there's Maora (far right) from Gentlemen's Alliance Cross, who is technically a boy dressed as a girl... but is still an energetic character (and with a unique outfit!).

Thank you ^^ I might do Maora, the dress/outfit is really cute (and I'm sorry it has taken me this long to reply ^^")

I think there are tons you could do actually, but some that come to mind are Kinon from Gurren Lagann, Mikuru from the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Mami from Puella Magi Madoka Magica, or Fuko from Clannad.

Hope that helps! ^.^

Hello all! I've posted on here before but didn't get any responses. Boo! But anyway. I still would like to know who I could cosplay. I' totally okay with wigs and cross playing. I recently bought a short teal wig and a medium length white wig. (pics below). Any suggestions?? I'm 5'2'' and weigh about 100-105 pounds. Thanks!!

I seem to pick costumes that don't go well with my physical appearance, so I thought I would ask the community for ideas.



I'm 4'11", so I'm quite short.

A closer-up picture of my face is my forum avatar in b&w, profile icon in colour.

Contacts and wigs are fine. I'd prefer to cosplay guys, I'm just not comfortable in skirts. And... even without binding I'm nearly a washboard. :C

Hair's gonna go a really dark dark ash brown tomorrow, probably a bit of a trim but not much of a change in style. Right now it's copper-ey dark brown.

In the past I've done Hong Kong from APH, Kaito from Vocaloid.

Bump, sorry, I really need ideas for something I can work on soon, the next con I'm going to is at the end of January :C

@CookieFruit, your skin is a tad tan like mine, otherwise your features seem quite diverse. I'd say you'd be able to cos any female character who isn't really really pale. I don't watch a tonnn of anime so I can't recommend one off the top of my head, sorry. :C But I wouldn't let skin tone really limit me if there was a character that you really really really wanted to cos with light skin, I've seen brilliant cosplayers with really dark skin that pull of light skin characters: http://weheartit.com/entry/20168147

@yagamiloli, a little hard to tell from that picture, could you provide height and skin tone? I'd have a better idea with those details.

@afilover14, lucky lucky luckyyyy. Your skin's light! So basically, you should choose from anything... Based on your thin frame, if you want to do cosplay that not a lot of other people could do well, I'd pick any character with blonde hair or light hair, since it won't clash with your skin tone. Like Vocaloid SeeU, Panty from PaSwG.

@wee, since you're shorter, I think you'd be able to cos younger characters well. Popura from Working!!, Meiling from Card Captor Sakura.

I was thinking Alfonz (sp?) from full metal alchemist but I haven't been able to find any auto body shops in the area that are open to the public.

I already have been working on a Hospitaler's [like the Knights Templar (crusaders) only less corrupt] outfit that is coming along nicely but it looks odd when worn anywhere other than a Ren fare or SCA event.

If anyone has any ideas I would love to hear them since I am out of ideas. "

He likes making chainmail, and would like something that might have that in the costume.

My skin tone is sandy beige with a yellow undertone [worked with a make-up artist for a while]

and I'm 5'5-5'4 in between heights but 5'7-5'6 with heels

Hey. I'm pretty new to cosplay. I've been really interested in Hetalia lately, and would like to cosplay one of the characters. Girl or boy. I'm 5'10" and slender-ish with light skin, dark hair, dark eyes. I don't mind wearing a wig or crossplay, though I wear glasses/contacts so I'd either have to get prescription color contacts or wear glasses over colored contacts, so keep that in mind. I've considered America, England, Italy, Romano, Spain, maybe some others, though I'm open to trying most of them. I'm too tall and not cute enough for a lot of characters, but hopefully there is someone I can be. Tell me what characters I could pull off? c:
Here is a picture of me: http://i775.photobucket.com/albums/y.../photo4-18.jpg
Thanks guys.

Hi guys, I've been trying to figure out which characters I look the most like but self critique can only get you so far. That's why I need your help to see if there is someone I look like (a lot). I'm about 5' 11", slim build, with black hair and eyes.

Thanks, I appreciate it.

Here's what I look like sometimes:

Exclamation



Here is a picture of me. I've never cosplayed before but I do have wigs and eye contacts (blue, brown, pink, and green contacts). My natural hair is short blonde (like so



I have a lip piercing, but I can take it out no problem and make it look like it was never there, lol. I'm also very thin, I'm 5"5, 87.2lbs. I have naturally bright blue eyes. I have no cosplay ideas but I have the body to easily do characters like Yoko (from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann), The Witch (Left 4 Dead), or any half-naked/scantly dressed characters. i just want some ideas of what would suit me

I'm up for buying wigs, contacts and accessories, but I'd rather make costumes, so nothing too complex (I'm very crafty, don't worry). I don,t like spending over 200$, especially since I'm only 14

Thankies
