I'm going to a con in August, so I have a lot of time and I want to make two costumes. I can't afford a wig and I can't order one online. I can only cut/dye my real hair. I've only cosplayed once before, as Dawn/Hikari from Pokemon, so I'm new to this, but I can kind of sew.

I was going to cosplay as either:

Chihiro (from ef - a tale of memories) and Ryou (from Clannad)
They both have short purple hair and Chihiro is the one with the eyepatch. I was also thinking of Tsukasa from Lucky Star instead of Ryou, but the Lucky Star uniform is more generic and I like Ryou's hair ribbon better.

or

Rena (from Higurashi) and Mako (from Kannazuki no Miko)
Their hair isn't the same colour or style, but I thought I could get something in between since orange is pretty bright anyway. My hair has to be normal enough for me to wear everyday (Purple is normal but orange isn't ^^;; ) For Mako, I didn't have a full size picture, but it's a red pleated skirt on the bottom.

I can't decide which two to cosplay as, so help me?
Which would be easier, which would look better...?

Kitee, I think you should go as Mako and Ryou, of course it would help if i saw your picture too- unless i missed it O_O (which is probably the likeliest thing)

I posted before- once on the other forum thinggy(and no one saw me T_T) and again on this one (but it didnt show up O_O) so again... Please tell me who I look like.. please? ^_^;;

here I am, please resist all temptation to scream and gauge out your eyes its bad for my self esteem (my hair is half way down my back)

Hi! I've never done cosplay before, but I plan to cosplay at Acen for May 2008. I'm open for anything, wigs, crossplay, it's all good.
I'm pretty tall (5'9), and I have somewhat of an athletic's figure. ^^
Here's me: http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f2...yself/pic2.jpg


Also, do you think I'd make a convincing Jam form Guilty gear?

I'm always looking for new ideas ^^;;

http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z...n/IMG_5430.jpg
http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z...n/IMG_4395.jpg

Let's see...

Eyes: blue-gray-greenish
Hair: naturally lightish brown (photo 2), presently dyed red (photo 1). I am willing to buy wigs
Height: 5'8" ish
Build: stocky-ish (though I'm slimming down a bit)

Particulars: don't like crossplay or very mainstream stuff generally (no DN/Naruto/Bleach please x.x) I do like Kingdom Hearts, but the girls in it are somewhat overdone (though I would like a princess recommendation, if anyone has one :x) I'm also wondering about a Sailor Scout cosplay... any one that I look like more? Also, any FF girls? Preferably something not too too hard... I'm still kinda new at this, though anything I can find a pattern for is good ^^

Anything else would be welcome too ^^

Baka - In your last picture, you look like L from Death Note

EDIT: Never mind. You've already done L ^.^;

Here's one from when my hair was shorter (It's past my shoulders now)

Me in the Odd Couple (Don't know why I posted it... probably because my hair is so awesome and beehive-er-ific)

And just for good measure, here's me after I'd taken the bobby pins out of the beehive, looking like a crack whore trying to be sexy

I'm 5'2", and about 115 pounds (but I'm pretty curvy). I wouldn't mind wigs and whatnot.

http://bleedingrzrbldz13.deviantart....Again-69674640

http://bleedingrzrbldz13.deviantart....st-Me-69674487

I'm: 5'1
about 105 lbs
brown, real light red hair (willing to dye)
brown eyes

I don't really like crossplaying, but yeah. Some suggestions for my next con would be cool.

Let's do this (I'm a cashew). I want in on the action, now. I'm up for whatever, when it comes to cosplay. Except nudity. Yeah, no nudity.

random pictures, ahoy!

FairyPrincess13 I can see you as being Mamimi Samejima from FLCL
By seeing your 2nd pic.


Uberwekkness I couldn't find anything except in your first pic that you look damn close to one of my friends in that dress when she was doing cosplay in. Heh heh she was the Special Feature show girl.



Now it's my turn.

Here's the same pic of me only that it maybe easier to find a match http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d3...naloutline.jpg
