I have a very hard time thinking of who I look like... Any suggestions?
Pic of me: http://a3.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphot... 321393_n.jpg

I'm about 5'2" if it really matters, fairly skinny.
I'm am willing to crossplay (have done it before) and willing to wear a wig. Also looking for more complex suggestions, I like standing out any suggestions are very much appreciated

Need help deciding on new cosplay...

I have dark brown hair, and I really don't enjoy wearing wigs. My hair is past chest length, but not too long. I have brown eyes and can't wear colored contacts. You can look at my gallery to give you a better idea of how I look in general. I don't mind simple to extravagant cosplays, but I would like to look like the character I'm portraying at the convention. Any ideas would be more than welcomed, thanks

Okay, so I was wondering what characters I could cosplay with my hair? I guess any one that I look like. I'm looking for some one where I wouldn't have to wear a wig or wear a wig I already have. I do have a few wigs, but half of them are at my old place and the ones I have are semi long green wig (C.C. Code Geass), a semi long purple wig (Saeko High School of the Dead), and a long brown curly wig (no specific character, not really ringlets, more like curls). If I had to use wigs. If I had the rest of my wigs I have a Misa Amane wig, a short black wig (like Japan from Hetalia). I can't think of other wigs I have. lol Any way, I only have the first 3 wigs.

I'm pretty much looking for some thing simple and cheap to cosplay. Preferably under 100 dollars, but I don't even know if I'd be able to make the cosplay myself because I don't have a sewing machine. What I usually do is buy base clothing from Good Will and alter them...by hand...which is a bitch. lol

If I could cosplay Misa again I'd like to be her again, I had another outfit of her's I wanted to do which is basically the red corset and black skirt, but I need to get a new wig if I can't get the one I already have.

Any way, just any suggestions on some simple, cheap, cosplays I can use my natural hair with or the wigs I have would be great. Thanks.

What do you guys think?

I'm pretty white, blonde hair, and short (5"2'). I also do not want to worry about a wig so blonde is where I would like to stay. :]

Help~? C: I'm 5'3'' and I'm average weight, long black hair with bangs and brown eyes (your typical Asian girl ^^; haha~).. Anywhoosits, I'm open to wearing a low maintenance wig but would prefer if I just could manage with a low key character that works with my appearance. I had Saya from Blood+ in mind or Clare Setilan (who isn't that low key but her costume is just too beautiful to resist)... Suggestions?

Oh and before I forget, here're some pictures of me! C:


just a random shot of my face/smile ^^;

I'm on the left, and I'm not as dark as the picture.. D: Rather light skinned

i must say that 1.) you are adorable! i'm jealous lol! ^_^ and 2.) you could seriously pull off so many different characters it's unreal.

do you have any favorite female characters that you could think of? because you could very well pull them off, you're perfect for cosplay!

sorry if that wasn't direct help...but i just had to tell you lol.

She seems cool. I'll have to check out the anime, but my purple wig is much longer then that. It goes down to atleast above my butt.

I have another picture of a friend. She's willing to wear a wig but would prefer not to. She'd be OK with crossplaying but she's not so sure if she can since she has DDs. =p She's about medium height - about 5'6". She's moderate weight - she's built to be heavier, but she has a nice figure and, I mentioned DDs.

So, HERE is a headshot of her and HERE is a semi-full body shot of her. As you can see, she's a bit stockier, but not heavy.

She's never cosplayed before and actually won't be able to go to a con this year. But we're planning ahead for next year's Anime Detour. So...ideas please. =] So I can give her a year to watch whatever it is she's playing.
If I could also draw some attention back to my post and get some more suggestions for all of us, that'd be great. =p
