4'11", blonde/brown hair, brown eyes, will probably wear my glasses most if not all the time I'm at the con.
No wigs, no contacts. I'd also not like to feel naked while running around the con.
Weird outfits, face paint (up to a point), etc okay/extra fun.

It needs to be something quick and easy... [read: I have 3 tests left this week and I leave for the con on Friday. YES, I'm an idiot, YES, I'd been planning to go since last year. I still haven't thought of anything, though. YES, I have actually spent time thinking about it since last September.]

I'm on a new computer, and this is the only decent pic of myself I have until I transfer the rest of my files... http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d1...l_cat/junk.jpg

Miscellaneous items I have that I list as potentially useful for cosplay:
1) Clothes in general (includes, along with my usual boring clothes, suits, dresses, random plain skirts, and......I think that's it. Just pointing out that I can throw togethera lot of things with plain clothes base and add to it from there.)
2) A black trenchcoat [think Neo, but black and not so shiny?] (is not included in clothes just to point it out.)
2) "prop" swords (if the character has green or black sheathed sword, I've got a sword that looks decent)
3) 1 (roughly size of orange) jingle-bell
4) 3 other pairs of glasses that I can swap out to try and match the character more closely if needed and still be able to see. Hooray for keeping old glasses
5) elf ears (not huge ones though)
6) eh, lots of miscellaneous junk? I'm a packrat, so I have supplies to make random stuff if needed.

I can sew, but only by hand. (I can use a machine, I just don't have one) Then again, I made some cool gloves that way off of a pattern in relatively little time. Still slower than machine... sigh.

Thanks

I don't cosplay but I want to start next year if I can get the money for costumes.
Other:
I'm like 5'2
16 (so nothing too inappropriate. I'll probably have to walk by my parents at some point)
I don't mind stuff that is a bit short or a little revealing.
Preferably no Bleach.

Erm, I know I already posted here, but I need some ideas for my boy as well. XD So far, all I have him down for is a Vash the Stampede cosplay, but we were hoping to have different costumes for all four days of the con.

He's about 6 foot 8, dirty blonde hair, blue eyes, and fairly skinny for his stature. He doesn't quite have the pretty bishi face, its more of a boy next door could possibly work on a ranch/find tinkering around under a car sort of face. (weirdest description ever, but go with it because I can't find ANY pictures of him) Any ideas?

PS: and if any one has any more ideas for me...? XD

Thank you Azimel! That really had helped! My friend just noticed that I resemble Fuu after I told him about it. He said it was a great call and indeed it was Lol. Thanks for the help. If anyone has any other suggestions please comment me! X3

For your son I remembered a tall anime character he can probably pull off, seeing as you say he is not the pretty bishi face I thought about someone older. From Hellsing, Alexander Anderson. There is a link there and hopefully this helps ya ^_^!

You would make a really good Anthy Himemiya from Revolutionary Girl Utena

Or Urd from Ah my goddess

I would give you more suggestions, but I have to get off the computer.

http://i114.photobucket.com/albums/n...99869657_f.jpg


In any case, i thought of a few characters, but i need more (or more accurate) cosplays... and also if possible something that wont be too expensive and it's easy to make :P

Here are the ones i thought i could make:

Sagara Sanosuke
Shino
Roy Mustang
Miroku
Shido Fuyuki
Nicholas D. Wolfwood
Alucard (Hellsing)
Lelouch Lamperouge (or Zero)
Hideki (Chobits, i need a Chii xD)
Shinbo (Chobits)
Ueda (Chobits, the chef)
Midou Ban
Toya kinomoto
L


But some of them will be too expensive/difficult to make. Or WAY too simple like L.

In any case, i need some serious advice hehe, i'd really appreciate it ^^
Well Im not very well at helping others yet, seeing as I cant figure out my own but your picture reminded me of Yusuke Urameshi, from Yu Yu Hakusho! Lol ^_^' hope I could be of help to you even if a little.

Coolness! I was thinking of being Anthy. Urd looks pretty cool too! I should look into Ah my goddess. I've always heard about it but never really watched it.

Well first seeing your photo, you reminded me sort of chad from bleach. But now you say you have white hair...That's a tough one! *thinks hard* Hmm Im not really sure but maybe Dante from devil may cry, or possibly... OOH OOH I THINK I GOT ONE!! X3 I just remembered, Archer from Fate Stay/Night!

ah! Thanks Miyoko09 and Uplaw. But, he's... not my son. XD He's my boyFRIEND. I guess I should have clarified that... eheh...

I'll pitch the ideas to him. Any other suggestions? We were hoping to do a couple's sort of cosplay... here's my data: (copy+pasted from previous post) Bear in mind that he's almost exactly a foot taller than I am. XD

Sanma: with the black hair/blue eyes combo, you could try Watanuki from xxxHolic.

I'm not entirely sure if I will be able to get my claws on a wig, but I will be able to die my hair (at least the blonde part that's there now) back to my original brown color. I can do colored contacts (as long as they are prescription) but probably not cross-playing (for this upcoming year at least. I'm making my bf a Vash costume, and I think he would be a little wierded out if I went as a guy). I'm approximately 5'8, can do heels if I need to. About 127 lbs, decent enough body that I don't mind showing off some skin. My main problem in coming up with characters to cosplay has been that my skin color is rather olive toned, and I have a sharper facial structure than most characters.

Here's some pics of me:

Well Im just posting again to see if anyone else had any ideas for me to cosplay. ^_^; eh heh. Please and thank you.

I will wear- contacts, wigs, glasses, pretty much anything as long as it's not too skimpy. *self concious!*

Who I was suggested so far:
  • Fuu- Samurai Champloo
  • Chii- Chobits
  • Kairi- Kingdom Hearts

Heh. A few pictures of myself.
Now here's a small novel: I'm 5'4, though I can always adjust my height with shoes if necessary. Hair can be cut, dyed, or I can grab a wig. My eyes are green and I won't be changing that, but I'm told eye color isn't generally a major issue (so if the eyes match it's only an added bonus).
I don't mind either gender, though I'm more partial to males. If it is female, I refuse anything skimpy because that would just be awkward. I like main characters because I like to feel important.
I wear glasses but I don't mind running around blind.
So it mostly comes down to what my actual face shape can handle without looking idiotic. I'm currently making an Edward Elric costume, but I have doubts I'm right for that. So far it's just something I'm doing for lack of anything else constructive.
Anime I've watched: Bleach, Full Metal Alchemist, Generator Gawl, Final Fantasy(s), Death Note, Gundam G, and Slayers. Yes, Bleach is my favorite.
If there's a character I might be good for not listed in the above, feel free to recommend it along with the anime they come from. Maybe I'll watch it or something.

For some reason when I seen your face with out glasses I had a character from La Corda D'Oro pop into my mind. He is actually one of the most viewed characters. His name is Keiichi Shimizu. Hopefully this can help ^_^'

I NEED HELLLLLP.

My mom wants to cosplay, and I’m not sure what character she should do! She’s 5’9”, has short (ear-length) brown (peppered with gray) hair, blue eyes, size 8/10 (medium body type) but losing weight, looks younger than she is (*cough*49*cough*) but still couldn’t pull off a much younger cosplay.

She’s got great legs, but doesn’t want to show too much of them; the same goes with skin all around. It’s not like she wants –everything- covered, but no X-2 Rikku, kthxbai.

Also, she’s not willing to do crossplay, and would be open to any anime/manga/video game. Ideas, please?

She's shorter than me and has shoulder lenght brown hair, if that helps ^^ She'd prefer stay away from blonde characters ^^U This is our pic

Oh, and no super famous series like Sailor Moon, Chobits, FF, Inuyasha, etc.

Thank you very much! =D
Okay I know you say no popular series but I cant help but say the girl on the right holding the piggy plush remineds me so much of Nana Osaki from Nana, and the one on the right I think if her hair is a light golden honey brown she could possibly pull off Nana "Hachi" Komatsu from Nana. You said you wished to have two main characters so hopefully you might think this is a somewhat good idea , hee hee.

It'd be easier if you had a picture but if you dont then could you possibly tell about how her length of hair is? to her shin, shoulders, ETC. would you say 8/10 is like medium or athletic, what? aslo is there any specific anime or game or manga?

BTW...you're mom is cool...she wants to cosplay with you...I wish my mom did that.lol
