Keiko from Yu Yu Hakusho. This outfit is a schoolgirl skirt and top, which are both fairly easy to make and are widely availible on the internet, and your hair and face are perfect!

Sae from Peach Girl. Again, another simple schoolgirl costume and character you'd look great as.

I cant think of anymore at the moment...BTW, you have pretty eyes.

I want to do an Ouran Host Club cosplay but don't know who should cosplay as who. I have three people interested. I'm about 5'6" my brother is a bit smaller my friend is shorter than both of us and if my other friend does wish to she is almost as tall as me. I wanted to do Haruhi but I don't know if I can pull it off, what do you think?

I'm open to almost anything, will need to wear a wig (lol curly hair). Don't mind crossplay either. I don't really like skimpy costumes though >.>
I'd probably rather be a character from a lesser-known /not-mainstream anime, but it doesn't matter~~

Here are a few pictures:

Making a weird face...
Last one :3

Thanks in advance! <3
OMG YES. Another curly topped creature such as myself: I totally know your pain. xD

I was originally thinking of someone else from Read or Die, but stick a black wig on you and some glasses and you'd look exactly like Yumiko Readman from Read or Die. You could also pull of Balsa in Moribito (she's in burgandy in the photo) or, if you like your anime a bit gory, Nyu from Elfin Lied.

Dark hair would be better. lol.
But both would be great!
PLEASE post more than that. A picture would be great. There are dozens of characters who have "ears" (I assume you mean something like animal ears) and HUNDREDS with dark hair.

In one of your posts, I know you asked if people thought you could pull off Light (I certainly do). And I know someone beat me to suggesting Kyouya... I'd suggest getting a good wig. I'd ask around in the appropriate forums (wig help, costume help) about what sort, but I know from experience the Roni sold in the cosworx store is a good, no nonsense short haired wig. It'd take a touch of trimming if memory serves but it's pretty much Kyouya style. If you don't want to buy a wig or dye your hair, you could also pull off Tamaki.

I'm 5'3 and about 87lbs. dark brown hair(as you see in the pics) and is a bit longer than shoulder length.
Any feebback would be the awesomest! =^^=
If you'd like a bit of a challenge, then do Kotoko from Chobits.

Somewhat simple of a cosplay, but you have the exact same facial structure (and yes, the glasses help) as Nanao in Bleach. AND you get to beat up all Shunsui's in your path.

Crossplay is fine for me. And wigs and non wigs.

And now my friend Alex:

http://i34.tinypic.com/2posllf.jpg
http://i35.tinypic.com/rck9rr.jpg

He's 6'5.
And 155 pounds.

No couple cosplay.
About a half dozen people beat me to suggesting for Alex Spike Spiegel. *sniff* That's what I get for being slow. He could also rock a great Mugen (Samurai Champloo) if no one mentioned that yet.

As for you, I had an odd moment of inspiration: you oddly remind me of Angel from the anime The Big O. Reference one and two.

Any characters pl0x?

Once again don't mind crossplay/wigs etc
You've got great eyes. :3 Perhaps C.C. from Code Gaess for you or Yoruichi from Bleach? I also like the one suggestion you got for Haji. EDIT: Dokuro-chan from Bokusatsu Tenshi ("Club-To-Death Angel"). It just hit me... erk. No pun intended. She'd be the one with the spiked mace in the reference shot.

Hair may be sightly different since I cut it after this shot, but its' grown back to around the same length.
Otacon from Metal Gear Solid. Here's two shots of him from the most recent game. The hair definitely inspired me.

You've got a lovely face. Since you want to go with easy, perhaps San from the movie Princess Mononoke. She's distinctive and the costume shouldn't give you too much trouble. Another one would be Ed from Cowboy Bebop!

Argh. The worst thing to hear on this thread is, "YOU TOTALLY LOOK LIKE SOMEONE THAT IS ON THE TIP OF MY TONGUE BUT I FAIL AT LIFE AND CAN'T THINK OF WHO IT IS." And, well... I fail at life. I mean, seriously. Your face is not-quite-triggering something for me (enough so that I am seriously sitting here and questioning whether we've met before or something). Until I can think it over more, here's a couple other suggestions:

This is coming totally from a place of fangirl-ydom (that, admittedly, seeing you in the sac anime gear made me think of it) is Daniel Smith from Killer7 (who is regretfully not very flashy, despite his character being badass). Kilik from Soul Caliber would be another good one for you (and more recognizable). And to end... while the show isn't exactly my cup of tea, you do bare a certain resemblance to Itachi from Naruto.

pics of me r in my gallery, my brother too, although he's in costume. His hair is really short so I don't think the alfit is that affective and my other friend is the one as Naruto. I'm sorry I don't have any other pics of us but I hate having my picture taken unless I'm in cosplay.

I think you'd made a great Sasuka, Haruhi from Ouran, or Rukia. Maybe even Ayame from Tenchu, if you're into ninjas. -3

suggestions and ideas

Funkarilla- I think you could make a great Selphie from FFVIII with the right wig. http://media.photobucket.com/image/s...hie-c.jpg?o=10

Mint from Tokyo Mew Mew might be a great look for you too. http://media.photobucket.com/image/t...w/Mint.gif?o=5

I also think you could pull off Rin from Inuyasha as well. http://media.photobucket.com/image/i...a/rin.gif?o=15

Does any one have any ideas for me? ^_^

@Funkarilla: with your facial structure you'd be a cute Umi from Magic Knight Rayearth... http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f2...nights/umi.jpg


Also again, any cosplay suggestions for me (top link) and my two friends would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks =]

Hey

So, me and a friend of mine have decided to try cosplaying and we would really love some ideas and input. We're going to our first con next month, and yeah, that's not a whole lot of time, but we thought we'd give it a try anyway.

As there isn't that much time and as we're beginners, I'd really love some simpler ideas, or something that could be rather easily constructed. And most of all, something that we'd really look like, I figure it'll be easier to succeed if we at first try for something that isn't too far-fetched. Babysteps

As for guidelines, we're both into goth and alternative clothing, so we do have a big bunch of odd clothing and accessories we can use Dreads and fake hair are okay. Preferably nothing that reveals the stomach. Male characters are perfectly fine as well. We're both around size 8. The characters don't have to go together, but it's not a problem if they do.

My pics are here: http://irc-galleria.net/archive.php?...ge_id=89398904 (it's in Finnish, sorry, but just click on the pics and you can make them bigger). I have glasses, but I can wear contacts.

My friend is here: http://irc-galleria.net/archive.php?...lbum_id=481045. There are more links on the left for more galleries. Her hair is blonde at the moment. She also has glasses, but wears mostly contacts.

(And yes, they are real. So nothing insanely revealing for her on the chest part. A bit revealing is okay, but nothing tasteless.)

A few more pics of both us are here: http://jeisaida.deviantart.com/gallery/


Thank you so much!

Kimmidoll - I could totally see you as Blue (Wolf's Rain) or maybe as Link? You have great features for crossplay; you're really pretty, but the square jaw lends itself well to smexy androgyny.
