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.

Don't know who to crossplay!

I want to crossplay as a guy, but I'm not sure who or even if my face type is good for it!
Any character is fine, but preferably one with shorter hair.
Here is what I look like:http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=orv7eu&s=5
Sorry about the picture quality!
Any help is welcome. Thank you!

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

WELL, ANYWAY...
So...
I'm 17 (I turn 18 tomorrow, woot woot)
AHM... I'm 5'2"
I weigh like around 125lbs-ish
I really want to try out a wig, but obviously that is not a deal breaker...
I have like green or blue eyes... They look more grey to me, though, lol...
I can't wear contacts...
A picture ref for my hair as it is:

So... The longest part of my hair goes down to like, the bottom of my boobs... xDD;

I really want to try out pretty much ANY cosplay... Like, anime or just a movie character, I guess... Or like, music/jpop/kpop or whatever. I just want to know what I would look good in. Thanks~
i think this girl! http://www.animecharactersdatabase.c...r.php?id=62956

hmm I think Black Butler characters? Since some of the females wear Gothic,Victorian,Lolita dresses but that's all I can think of.

And I'd like a suggestion! Recent pic of me is to the left and I'm up to cross play. I enjoy wearing wigs and contacts.

:UUUU!!
ok! So, I just made up a collage of the widest variety of photos of myself, with a bunch of different hair lengths that I could find.
hopefully these will give you a better idea of things I could pull off.

And please, challenge me. * U* I have a whole year to make up this cosplay, and I wanna go all out. Armor's even ok. the only things I don't think I can do would be retardedly fancy victorian dresses or something like that.

Ok so, by the time of the con, My hair would be just passing shoulder length. But I am willing to wear a wig.
I can't wear contacts because I have a really bad astigmatism, so if the character has blue/green eyes, that's a bonus.

I'm 5'10", I have a larger female bone structure, so that means I have a large rib cage and wide shoulders, and have hourglass curves.
I've been working out as of late, and have been making good progress, so I'd ballpark my weight to be at about 155lbs by the con.

I'm pale with a pink undertone, my hair colour's closest to the bottom right picture.[[please excuse the silly face I'm making there. X'D]]

At a previous con I cosplayed Ran Yakumo from touhou, and would totally be willing to do it again, I'd have to revise the outfits, but the tails I made were killer~!
Other idea I thought might suit was Robin, from Witch Hunter Robin.

But please, shoot me ideas! * U*
[[oh, the only thing I ask is that it not be retardedly skimpy.]]

Dr. Stein? bahahaha. I might look into that ^_^ though I'd have no clue how to go about the headpiece. for halloween though I need something that would be recognizable to people who aren't into anime, but I'd like it if I could reuse it for an anime con. this is the challenge. I should just do Tuxedo Mask and get hubby to go as sailor moon LOL (never happen)

Abused mule: Witch Hunter Robin would be awesome I might have to look into that one myself some time. Though I know I'd be too hot in all those layers depending on when the con is. I'm a northern gal, I don't handle extreme heat very well, so it's something I'll always have to consider when choosing a cosplay I guess =/

I have basically no cosplay experience (I've thought about it many times but never did try to get into anything.) And I feel rather lacking in ideas. But for the rest of my summer I'm determined to get some outfits made/bought! ^^ So here is me: http://imgur.com/a/Z2w1a (I apologize if I look rather lazy or my hair is unruly along with my face.)

I'm 15, dark brown eyes, dark brown hair (w/ Dark Red Highlights). I'm 5'3" 104 lbs. I don't mind doing characters from anime, manga, games, cartoons, I'm mostly looking for look a like ideas to get kick-started! So yes.. Suggestions are appreciated

Okay so I need help deciding who to cosplay. I am a big gamer, movie and tv watcher. Comic reader, and into some Anime. My dream cosplay is Serana from Skyrim, I just do not know how to go about it so sometime later when I am more experienced.

I am 5'4 tall, and my weight changes all the time and atm i do not know. (been eating too much junk food. LOL) My body is built curvy, flat stomach, but round hips and 36 D bust.
I prefer a cosplay that doesnt show much stomach as I have some scars on my stomach that I prefer not to show.

Abused_Mule: It was a bit harder to choose because I tried to think of characters who appear to be larger (not fatter) women but most of the women I found had obnoxiously large breasts, so not knowing what size you are some of these might not be for you! It was also very difficult assuming that you look A LOT younger with shorter hair, and the last picture you a lot older.

BALALAIKA from BLACK LAGOON
RANGIKU from BLEACH
CHUN LI from STREET FIGHTER
NAKURU NARUMI from MAYO CHIKI!
FATINE from TOWER OF DRUAGA: The Recovery of Babylim
TERESA from CLAYMORE
SUSIE EVANS from VALKYRIA CHRONICLES

Just a few to name off.

Female, 19
Height: 5' 4"
Skin Tone: Fair, but I tan very easily
Weight: 128 lbs
Hair: Dark brown
Crossplay: No thanks
Wigs: Fun but I am on a tighter budget so preferably not
Contacts: Honestly? They kind of scare me but I have been interested in them for a while so I would be interested in trying it out if need be. My natural eye color is hazel though predominantly green

I am very interested in doing a Game of Thrones cosplay so if you see me and think of a particular character that you think I could do well then please throw out a suggestion but I am open to animes, video games, TV or other book characters as well. My deadline is far in the future so I can try out these shows or games before then to see if I like them.

Ooo~! Thank you for the suggestions.
Fatina looks like a cool thing to go as, watched the first episode and was so confiused until the end. X'DD

&&Haha, that's funny cause the longer hair pics are about two years older than the short hair pictures, the short hair ones are from... last year and the year before that. And the longer haired ones are early highschool.

I don't know why but you remind me A LOT of the Silk Spectre,
But it is pretty tight/revealing.. so maybe someone more like dead master from Black Rock shooter:

Star_Samurai: Hey there all these characters were chosen, from your expectations. I choose characters where a wig would not be required, they are also based off of your apparent age, and none of these characters are based off of cosplay complexity.

Lara Raider from Illusion Field
Bai / Pai from Darker than Black: The Black Contractor
Narcissus from Bunny Black 3
Emma Honeywell from The Last Remnant
Kanisawa from Bleach
Eisai Miroku from Amatsukaze ~Kugutsu Jinbuu-chou~
Rem Tokimiya Final Fantasy (Series)

Hope I could give a few ideas! ^_^
