i am

about 5'6
a little curvy but im working on losing a good amount of weight lol

eyes-usually green or blue gray but depend on mood and weather they can go full gray blue hazel turquoise ect...

hair- dark strawberry blonde but like i said completely willing to wear a wig. the style right now is grown out but its extremely layered and a about shoulder lengthits thick and wavy but i straighten it.

skin tone- a tiny but tanned from being outside but normally fair

sorry not giving my weight haha not to comfortable but i did give my build

im willing to do anything for a costume but im not to into crossplay and please nothing to reaveling im only 13

No crossplay? What if the dude looks like a girl? xD You seem like you could do Deidara from Naruto really well. ^_^
[It's the best reference picture I can find. >.> Photobucket's down currently.]
You don't seem like you would need a wig for Deidara...the sewing shouldn't be too hard, but...I'm new to that. =] Good luck!

Nice to meet you all ^_^ I can't really find a normal pic of me... so in case the pics suck here is a description:

Sex: Female
Height: ~5'4''
Build: athletic but curvy (solid curves, I call em ^_~ Yessirybob)
Hair: long (about to mid back right now, but since I wait about 6 months between cuts, it gets to about my waist), wavy, with a tendency to get curly (and fluffy) in humidity.
Eyes: Brown
Skin: olive, light tan

This is my first time cosplaying, but I'm an acting major so don't feel the need to hold back. I can do anything with my hair, except cut it. Seriously-- I'll mold it with glue if need be. Make-up is also a non-issue, I can handle anything from natural to circus clown and everything in between. I would like to take advantage of my hair naturally if possible though. Pic is attached but my hair is a good 4-5in longer now.

Hi! I'm new to cosplay but I'm not new to the concept or anime. I'm really open to anything at all. I'm about five feet tall, despite being 16, and curvy, though not chubby. I have auburn/brown-red hair that is curly but I do tend to straighten it. My eyes are gray-blue, and I do suffer from the Irish curse of pale skin with freckels. I'm unfortunatly rather large-breasted (D's baby!) but I have played boys before for plays at school and I do not mind taping down my chest. Anyways, here's a picture. Please ignore the hideous zit on my chin.

I am an old guy with a beard, and I seem to not be able to find many characters with beards. I would rather not play a girl, since well the beard bit So what kind of advice does the Sages of Cosplay have for me?

Dude! My husband is just like you so I've been around and around with this.. here are a few I found.. if you come up with some PM me so I'll add them to my list

1. Marian Cross from D Gray Man... this one is awesome!! But you will need a wig and probably to trim the beard slightly

2.Shunsui Kyōraku from Bleach (8th captain)

3. "Dad guy" from Solty Rei (problem here is noone will recognize you without another character)

There are some others but these were the 3 I came up with at work

I'm such a bad employee
Lover of video games, anime, chai, and chocolate and has a questionable addition to fabric and wigs.

Hi everybody!!

I'm trying to find a cosplay for me.

I want to do something really nice and elaborate, you know, wings, dresses... I saw my friend as Ruby Moon and I felt like doing something elaborate since I always rather "simple" cosplays" such as schoolgirls and all that... not to say those types of cosplays aren't great, don't get me wrong! But I just feel like I want to do something more interesting... it doesn't need to be something original and rarely seen, just elaborate... I love cosplays with wings, though they are really hard to make look good, I think I wanna give it a try! ^_^

Anyway, I was hoping you could help me find a character to do this, it can be from anime or videogames, it's the same to me.

I'm about 1,61 mts tall, I'm kind of slim/normal... anyway here's a pic of how I look now...


Oh, and I don't mind wearing a wig, it's just that where I live, good wigs are rare, and if you don't have a nice wig the cosplay loses quite a lot of points.

Thanks in advance!!

Who do I look like? I'm for going all out on wigs, contacts, body paint, etc.

I'm female. - I don't crossplay.
Height: 4'9"
Weight: 115 lbs.
Hair: Blackish-Brown
Eyes: Dark Brown

I'm wearing contacts in both of these pictures.

I love my hair in this picture although it's blurry. ( Sorry ; ; )

I'm not quite fond of my hair in this picture but it's a really good shot of my face.

Any suggestions for future cosplays are greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Hey, I'm just curious about what I could pull off. I'm pretty set for a con next month but I enjoy cosplaying just for the fun of it.

Ignore the fact that I'm Yuffie here...

I'm female
Height: 5'2"
Weight: 95 lbs. [I'm around that. Haven't weighed myself in a while]
Hair: Blackish-Brown, shoulder legth
Eyes: Brown

I don't mind crossplaying what so ever. I'm a little iffy about wigs, but if it's a cool cosplay totally I'm willing to wear one. I don't mind cutting my hair or growing it out either. Not a fan of dye (Killed my hair once upon a time).

Much appreciated!

Hi people! I'm trying to get ideas too, so could you help me please?

My Picture!
I'm a girl. I have no problems with crossplaying, wigs, etc.
I have a normal/curvy build, and I'm about 1.67cm (5'5"), I'm kinda busty if that helps too XD I have brown eyes, dark brown shoulder lenght hair, I'd like to use it if possible, but I have no problems using wigs (because where I live is really difficult to get a nice wig...)

Oh, and I'm kinda shy, so please no skimpy outfits... ^_^;;

Thank you very much!

@natylopez: I think you'll make a nice Suiseiseki (Rozen Maiden) Picture 1 Picture 2 Picture 3
If you have a friend/sister you could go as the twins Souseiseki and Suiseiseki ^_^
@DemonDarkChild: Mmmh... Maybe Ino Yamanaka from Naruto? Eri Sawachika from School Rumble? Shinku from Rozen Maiden? There are a lot of blonde characters ^_^;

Hope I can be of help

Hey all. So, I KNOW I already look a lot like Aeris from Final Fantasy VII, and after getting such praise for choosing a costume that fits my look so well I've started thinking I want to narrow my cosplay ideas more into characters I look like.

Here's some pics:

W/ glasses- http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v206/gale583/emo.jpg
W/ hair dyed red- http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v206/gale583/red.jpg
W/ short brown wig- http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...mebrownwig.jpg

Some I'm thinking of right now are MisaMisa from DeathNote and Relena from Gunam Wing. I'd love more suggestions though!

DemonDarkchild- Your look reminds me of...well, me! lol That said, I will surely second whoever told you to dress as Winry! Sheik could also work well on you, but Malon would require a wig. As would Hawkeye because her hair is much shorter than yours. If you're willing to try for a little extra work maybe Rikku from FFX or FFX-2 too, or perhaps Panelo from FFXII. Also, I imagine you could make a good Ino from Naruto.

VegaLyre- your mentioned circus clown make-up and my mind immediately went to my friend Saki_B's cosplay of Harle from Chrono Cross (http://chrono.lunar-net.com/cc/cross...arle2-800.jpg). From your look I'd have to say the first idea that came to mind is Kitty Pryde from X-Men (particularly as drawn in Astonishing X-Men). If you're looking for something more along the lines of anime, though, perhaps Kaoru from Kenshin? or Rinoa from FFVIII. Oh, you'd also make a great Sailor Jupiter. Also, w00t yay acting majors who cosplay (aren't we just insane? haha)

Crazymonkey- I can see you as a GREAT Malon from Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

I'd suggest more, but unfortunately don't have time at the moment. Zodidij, I will certainly be thinking of characters with beards to try to come up with something for you!

Who do I look like? Sorry the photo's in Sepa, but I think it'll do. I'm not crazy about cross play (it makes me really confused) but If it's a cool character I'd do it. (and if it's not to complicated, I'm a newbie)


Thanks a bunch!
