Alice in Wonderland.
She is the perfect combination of wide eyed innocent meets devious & reckless adventurer.

This version has a blue victorian ruffle dress, a brocade corset with a red heart on the front and even an incredibly elegant strait jacket!!
9" padlocks available too!!

Let's see how this works out, I haven't really cosplayed before, and I need some inspiration!

Age: 13 (I can easily play children and teenagers, obviously)
Body type: Petite, thin.
Height: 5'3
Weight: 85lb
Eyes: Very light brown, bordering on green (But I've worn contacts in the past and have no issue with it.)
Hair: Strawberry blonde.
Crossdressing: I'm fine with it!
Skin tone: Very pale.
Contacts/Wigs: Completely fine.

Aaaand here!


I don't really know if personality counts, but I'm pretty outgoing and open to all ideas. I'm actually an actress, I do stage and film, so I'm fine with getting into character.

Also, I don't know much anime (But feel free to suggest if you think I'd fit an anime character), I know more about western animation and Disney. I'm thinking of maybe trying Wendy from Peter Pan, but I'm making a list that perhaps you can help me with!

I'm needing a cosplay to match this wig. :3 I have a con coming up and a not finished Snow White costume. And buying a new, good wig isn't really an option finance-wise.

So, characters with short black hair and bangs? Preferably female.

I've already thought of Kiki from Kiki's Delivery Service, Mavis from Hotel Transylvania, and Chane from Baccano (with a little styling).

Any ideas?

Or for my real hair: http://www.mibba.com/data/images/pre...it-640x640.jpg

Helpful Ideas are always appreciated.

First time cosplayer for next A-kon in dallas next year and I need ideas on what to dress as. I have no clue.
I am Male 6'3 white.
Dark brown hair almost black.
Brown eyes.
Thin body.
And then my mustache and goatee are both decently long. My goatee is about 3-4 inches now and my mustache well not horrible long but I could easily do handlebars. Wanted to go for a Fu Man Chu. I think I spelled that correctly. I will put up a pick of me that is older while my hair was long. That is because by the time A-kon comes around my hair will be that length again. Yes its my wedding photo but yea divorced now. for about 3 years now. Any help will be appreciated and also if you want to be my friend and keep in contact as well send me a private message. Just consider this my introduction to you all as well because I tried twice to put up a thread in the intro to introduce myself and yea no gogo juice. Well look forward to speaking with most all of you fine people. Later

stickmichael: Why not cosplay The Mandarin? Buzz is he's going to be the villain in the next Iron Man movie. Timely!

Wow this thread is long ._.

This will be my first somewhat official cosplay. I've dabbled, but I want to make my own costume this time. I do not want to wear a wig, and I'd like something that works with my natural hair. I also don't feel comfortable showing my stomach (self conscious).

Gender: Female
Hair: Dirty Blonde
Eyes: Blue
Height: 5'6
Body type: Hourglass but with a larger chest.

Some photos for you: how my hair looks now,
and another hair/face look. I wouldn't mind getting my bangs back.
A body shot.
And another.
An idea of my eye shade (I'm on the right).

I was thinking of Winry from FMA, but I'm not happy with the default look. I was also thinking Nova from SC2, but I don't know how I'd feel wearing such a body-con outfit. Another choice is Sailor Venus, but my hair isn't nearly long enough. And lastly, Queen Cersei from Game of Thrones, but I don't know if I'd be down with having the whole incest shenanigans going on. There's a big event at the beginning of next term that my uni puts on, so I have a few months to get an idea and prepare it. I'm a quick worker since I'm used to sewing and creating things, so the time limit doesn't bother me.

Any suggestions are appreciated :3

If you like Full metal alchemist why not Olivier Mira Armstrong? Might fit your look more.

Fresh ums- you could try erica from campione! (though your hair may be a little short) or Arcueid brunestud from type moon's tsukehime lunar legend

Also you could try Riza hawkeye from FMA

Who should I cosplay?

I'm somewhat willing to wear colored contacts (I do night contacts anyway). I will not dye my hair but I want the cosplay to be "passable/decent." I won't wear a skirt or heels, boots might be okay, sandals might be okay, sneakers are great.

I've uploaded two pictures of myself (hair down and hair up). These are recent pictures.

Hair: shoulder length brown hair
Eyes: brown eyes, somewhat willing to wear colored contacts (though it will be my first time wearing them during the day)
Height: 5'5" ish, no heels!
Personality: Outgoing, loud, stubborn. Not one of those shy people. Planning on doing this for halloween (and comic-con I suppose).
Budget: Not entirely sure. Just give me ideas.
Sew: Nope I can't. Not at all. Though I might be able to get my friend to commission something for me.
What I watch/like: Most popular animes and games (not really a fan of One Piece though), Harry Potter, Willing to watch other animes and see if I like the characters. Not a fan of movies or Star Wars or Dr.Who
Crossdressing: If you truly think I can pull it off, sure why not?

Thanks! Sorry bout the long post.

Hello everyone!
This isn't my first time cosplaying, but it's been about 4 or 5 years since I last did it. And now I want to get more serious with the hobby.

Age: 19
Height: 4'10"
Hair Color: Dirty Blonde, Jaw Length
Eye Color: Blue-Green
Other: Freckles (Face & Shoulders)

I have a very shy personality, so I don't wear anything that's risqué, so that's where I'm stumped. I will wear skirts that are on the short side, if I have leggings. xD I'm not in a hurry, since I just want an idea for now. I won't be attending anything until next year, hopefully. And I'm willing to study up on characters that I'm not familiar with. I have a few ideas, but I want to see what other people say first. Oh, and I wouldn't mind wearing a wig! Maybe even dying it too.

Crossplay: Yes. My first cosplay was actually Matt from Death Note, and so it was my first crossplay too!~ Two-for-one C:


As for Ai07091995: I was thinking Tomoe from Queen's Blade, Nadeko from Bakemonogatari, or Kuroneko from Ore no Imouto (If you would wear a dress ._.)
I'm really bad at this .-.
