How tall are you? Reason being is that you could pull off Ned from Pushing Daisies, but he's, oh, 6'3. XD

I'm trying to think of other suggestions as well.

I've been plotting a Frederic FranÁois Chopin costume and i've always wanted to do Squall, but my female friend is crossplaying him now (damn you wench!). Hell We BOTH have had the squall ring and pendant for years (ok I had mine for longer, hahaha!) I remember wearing down my knuckle to fit that ring on my finger as a kid lol, and it still fits me now eeep lol. Talk about going to extremes for cossplay :P


I'm just a little over 6 feet. And unfortunately even after loving pushing daises, I doubt I would recognize someone as Ned unless it was the actor heh.

I never thought of Ichigo, probably because of how overdone he is as a character.

I must find someone I can cossplay as where I'll have the yaoi fan girls all over me (or fanboys, yay :P) Unfortunately that means Kingdom hearts these days, and Iíve yet to play it (itís next in line :P) Perhaps my Shuichi outfit will bring the fangirls? But Iím too tall and mature looking now I think, bah.

@xtafa

Sephy!!! Broad shoulders = shoulderpads anyway, and come on the white face picture, you have a fairley long face so it works quite well :P

Adoni - You look alot like Nate from Gossip girl xD
I'd think you'd make a pretty good howl from Howl's moving castle, or Ichigo.

Hotcake - You and your friend are both gorgeous =]]
For some reason sailor scouts popped into my mind.

Really want to try cosplay but don't know quite who to choose, so..

I'm about 5'4, medium length dark brown hair and dark brown eyes.
Of course, I'm willing to wear wigs and such. XD
I'm pretty much open to any character, girls or boys. ^^

I actually cosplayed as Chuck, with a Ned, at Dragoncon. We wore the outfits only about an hour, and a ton of people recognized who we were. It helps if you have a pie box with "The Pie Hole" on it and/or carry around a pie. It could be different at anime cons (I only do scifi/comic cons), but at D*Con, we had plenty of people who recognized us. Black dress shirt, black pants, black Chucks, a half apron, and pie, and you're good to go.

So if you could rope in an adorable, tiny girl, you'd be fine.

Thanks for responding, guys! If anyone still has any suggestions please post them!! I should have said this before, but I'm really looking to cosplay someone who actually looks my age. And I'm fine with buying wigs and contacts and all that jazz.

@GyrfalconAH64D: WOW she is HOT. I don't think I'm sexy enough to pull her off AHAHA... Maybe when I'm older?!? HMM..

@Zutasha: OOH OLD SCHOOL! Well their hair is so long it might be kind of a pain in the ass, but did you have anyone specific in mind?


@FlyingPandas: OOOH Rinoa from FF8: http://www.gamershub.org/thumbnailer...pe=Media_Large
http://www.freewebs.com/fallenangels...gi%20Rinoa.jpg
Or you could do Sophie Hatter from Howl's Moving Castle: http://www.onlineghibli.com/howls_ca...har/sophie.gif
http://images.evalu8.org/images/howl...hie-fly352.jpg
And you have a really cute cartoony quality in your face, so I'm just going to throw Toon Link out there: http://www.zelda-world.com/v3/img/ze...poster/001.jpg

Would I make a good Link? I think that would be a pretty easy first cosplay.

I'm the one on the left

I solved that little problem by making one out of Model Magic instead of real pie ingredients.

But man, was I craving pie soooo bad after making the fake pie. XD

I'd really like some suggestions. (:
Some of my friends already suggested that I go next year, again, as Xigbar and possibly Shippo.

I'm about 5'0 so my height is probably going to be part of the issue. xD;

Hewwo! I've become a bit stuck on ideas. I would like to have another cosplay for PMX in November, and am looking for suggestions. ^_^ I'm 5'1", and prefer female characters. Age is no issue. Thank you!

I was at Sac-Anime, too (stuck behind an AA table ^^)!

Well....as soon as I saw your photos, I immediately thought of Uryu Ishida from Bleach. (I tend to be biased with Bleach characters because I love Yoruichi.. ._.) You would certainly be perfect as him! I'll post more suggestions in the near future.

Aww...you're purtyfuls! Here are my suggestions:

- Fuu (Samurai Champloo)
- Aerith (FFVII)

*still stuck on ideas*

I seem to have Cosplayer's [Ideas] Block today....

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. Any ideas?

Here's some pics of me:

- Lulu (FFX)
- Revy (Black Lagoon)
- Ibuki (Street Fighter)
- Tifa Lockheart

You could pull off a lot of characters beautifully!
