Picture of me is here.
I think you'd make an awesome Terezi!! That's who I think would suit you best. You look cool as Vriska too, though.^^ *totally hyped about Homestuck atm*

Hello! I feel bad that I don't have any suggestions and won't get mad if I don't get any, but they're very much appreciated. I'm from the rping world and usually stick with ocs.

Gender: female
Age: 18
Hair: brown, mid to low back
Eyes: hazel
Height: 6'0"
Body type: slender
Crossplay: no
Revealing: sure
Wigs: no
Contacts: no (I already wear them)
Here are some reference photos:

I'm much more into Western style and live action characters, specifically historical (au, steampunk, pinup).

Thank you so much!

This would be my first time cosplaying Could anyone help me figure out who or what I could cosplay as? I'm hispanic but have been told I look asian. I am 17 almost 18 years old but have been told I look like a freshman (actually a senior) hahaha... Have dark brown hair, brown eyes, average face and body. About 5'2". I don't really have the money for a wig or contacts right now but I am open to the options Uhmmm I don't mind crossplay either but I'm not sure if I could pull it off.

Here is an album of myself (and a few friends). The new years one is the most recent one of all.

I'm sccary pale. x.x Minor description rant is in case the photo fails on me . Crossplay is just fine with me. I have NO idea and could really use some suggestions (: Thank you !!

Hey, just thought I'd join in!


And here is another: (X)

I really hope the link thing works dX, I'm not too good at this. Anyway, if you need any more references, just go to my tumblr or something since that's pretty much the only place I keep my pictures.

So, tell me the character I would look good as? Please, only guys, I don't plan to crossplay anytime soon sadly, haha.

I've never done any cosplay before, me and a friend or three may be going to Anime St.Louis so I was just wondering if there is anything out there that I could maybe potentially try?
I'm 6'1ish 270, sounds like a lot, but some of it's muscle XD
Dark green eyes, pretty tan skin once the sun comes out.


soooo yea, any suggestions would be cool

Frequently Asked Questions: "Who should I cosplay

I just research and read everything online. It also helps that Iím a member of art community websites such as deviantArt and Flickr, because then I get to brainwash myself with really pretty photos. Photography books do help, too. So basically, itís all self-taught....

A friend of mine is looking for some help on deciding what to cosplay for this upcoming con. he's about 5' 10", medium build.


We've thought of Hughes from FMA, but he doesn't want to do it without at least Roy.

I haven't done cosplay before and have no idea where to start. I'm probably not actually going to *do* anything for some time yet, probably not for a good year most likely (I have a lot to learn, and basically no idea where to start), but I figure it doesn't hurt to ask, at least to get some ideas (I'm not terribly familiar with a lot of the character options that are out there.)

Gender: Male
Height: 165cm *exactly* (about 5'6" if I recall correctly. We use metric in Australia, so don't be surprised if I'm wrong on that. Metric's a lot easier to use, by the way.)
Hair: Dark Brown
Eyes: Some weird greyish-blue colour.
Revealing: Not a good idea with the gut I've got. I'm liable to cause people to pass out. And not for the good reason. I'd prefer to save myself the embarrasment.
Wigs: Yeah, I'd actually prefer using a wig for this. I can't do *ANYTHING* with this hair. It's stupidly uncooperative. I'm also balding early (seems to run in the family) so yeah. Wigs are good.
Contacts: No (open to trying them, but I suspect it might cause issues with the eye drops that I use, so it might be best to avoid them. I'm not too fussed on matching the eye colour personally anyway at this point, just to getting a feel for the whole deal).

Crossplay: Very much open to it, but I probably haven't the body (big gut, but can suck it in, and willing to consider methods of keeping it in, as well as actually losing the weight, which is probably the best idea tbh) and probably not the right face shape for it. But again, if you think of something that'd be doable, I'm open to the idea. It sounds like fun.

Sewing skills: About as good as my mechanical skills*. Although I'd obviously be willing to learn how to sew (there's a pair of cargo pants I have that's a bit too long and needs taking up anyway...)

Glasses: Yep, I wear them anyway. A very strong prescription too (+6.5 I believe) so yeah. Kinda important. You shoulda seen the ones I had as a really little kid.

Other facts: Yes, the left eye is bad. No, there's not really anything I can do about it.

Feel free to suggest options that might be suitable if I lose some weight. Frankly, I probably need to. A motivation would be good.

Woah, this got long. Sorry folks!

*aka honestly haven't got a clue. Never trust me with a mechanical implement. Ever. Except a screwdriver. I do know how to work those.

Photo (from when I cut my hair. lol)
And from Yoko progress shots. (Body type)

Gender: Female
Height: 5'4" ish
Hair: Naturally? lol It changes color... I think it's brownish.
Eyes: Dark brown almost black.
Revealing: If I like the character enough... It takes a seriously cool character. ... Also I'll need some time to get into the proper shape.
Wigs: Absolutely. I prefer them, usually, because it's easier than trying to style my hair. XD
Contacts: Yes. Love them. But bear in mind, I have SUPER dark, almost Asian-black eyes, so it's a bit harder to find them.
Crossplay: Open to it, giving Rin from Aoi no Exorcist a go in September. I'm pretty feminine looking though. xD
Sewing skills: Pretty decent. I'm a fashion design major and I have some experience in weird fabrics and techniques of cosplay.
Glasses: No preference. I personally hate them but a bunch of my characters wear them.

Ta-da! ~
I would appreciate the help!
upcoming cosplays

haruhi suzumiya - 95% complete
rin okumura - 0% complete
