Hello everyone:

I'm trying to decide what to do for an upcoming con and I'm drawing a blank. I want something fairly simple this year as it's been two years since I last wore a cosplay.

Anime and manga-wise, I like x/1999, Fate/Zero, Berserk, Ouran, One Piece, Baccano, Durarara, and Madoka off the top of my head. Videogame-wise I've been playing Dragon Age, Uncharted, and Assassin's Creed lately and enjoyed them. By no means are these exclusive lists.

I'm about 6'0" and around 150/155 lbs. I'm a bit paler in real life than the white balance on my cell camera otherwise suggests. My hair also does not lie down at all, so dye or a wig would be acceptable if needed.

I much appreciate any suggestions you all can offer!

Thanks!
She's probably a bit taller than you, but you could pull off Ellen Ripley from Alien. Or maybe River Song from Doctor Who.

First time poster, just getting started

Hi guys! I just did my first real cosplay at Anime North in Toronto, and I loved the fact people wanted to take photos with me as I was Kanji Tatsumi from Persona 4. I asked some people for characters my body type would fit but I kept getting the answer of do anyone you want, as long as you like the character. While I appreciate people trying to be nice and make me comfortable, I just want a character I fit so people will see the cosplay and hopefully want to take a picture with me. I am also new to anime so if I get any suggestions I will definitely be looking the shows up. For reference I have seen Clannad/After Story, Angel Beats!, and I am in the process of watching the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. Thanks for any help I get, and I will include my height, weight and a picture. On a side note while I still have a bit of a stomach I have lost weight and I am trying to just loose that last bit until abs, so shirtless characters are OK with me (though it might require some shaving lol).

Height: 5'8"
Weight: 210

Pic of me as Kanji (I have since gotten a better wig): http://i.imgur.com/ezj0nXX.jpg

I'm a first-timer, so please nothing super difficult/time-consuming/expensive, if possible ^.^

Female, late teens
Height: 5'4" (~162 cm)
Weight: ~100 lbs (~45 kg)
Skin Tone: Very pale -__-
Hair: Dirty blonde, short (it's almost a pixie cut)
Crossplay: Sure, but I'd slightly prefer to stick with female characters
Wigs: Prefer not...
Contacts: No... Also I have blue/green/grey eyes (depends on what I'm wearing...)

I'm okay wearing almost anything, as long as it's not too too skimpy. Sorry if this is hard to do without a picture...

Thank you!

Hard to say without a picture - but I read the pale and short sandy-blonde hair and these are the characters I thought of: (It tried to pick simple-er-ish ones :3 )

Rin Kagamine (Vocaloid)
Tia (Stella Deus)
Rikku (Final Fantasy) - Though you would need a wig :/
Arisa (Fruits Basket) - Simple, but maybe a wig again :S

Good luck finding your character!

I think Rin would work best for me, so I'll try that. Thanks for your response!

I don't have a lot of good pictures of myself, especially full-body pics. if this one's not good enough let me know and i can try to find something else.
but i'm 32, 120lb but appear thinner so i'm told, 5'5", small chest.
wigs are fine, i can't do contacts though.
anything where i can keep my glasses on would be a huge plus


eta: forgot to mention cross is ok, and actually i'm on the hunt for an idea for one for halloween this year

Heyyy, okay, so...
I've cosplayed before, kinda, but it was more of a thrown together thing...

So...
I'm 17 (going to be 18 tomorrow, woot woot)
I'm 5'2"
I weigh around 125lbs...
I want to try to get/wear a wig because I never have before, but obviously that's not a deal breaker...
I'd prefer not to wear contacts... ;^;
A pic ref for my hair:


I don't really know what else I should say... But, uhh... Yeah. Please and thank you~

Ok I'm out of ideas and have a con in about two months so turning to you, Cosplay.com.

Female, 24, 5'11" without shoes, 200lbs. Pale freckled skin, dark reddish brown curly hair to mid back.

Reasonably good sewing skills, ok with making props. Only have one wig (super long black straight) and would prefer to use it but might be able to manage a new one.

Cosplay tastes tend to be on the gothic/Victorian/lolita side but I'd like to give a shot at more warrior ladies or monstergirls soon (I'm crazy tall/broad shouldered, why not) I don't do overly revealing or skin tight, and also don't want to crossplay.

Old picture but best I can find for judging my features.
