Hello all, I'm new the forums and fairly new to cosplaying in general, though I have been to several conventions around Canada and the USA.

Stats:
Ethnicity: Half-Japanese, Half-British
Height: 6'1 (185cm)
Weight: 155lbs (70.5kg)
Eyes: Brown
Hair: Black (approx. 1.5 inches long)
Build: defined wiry
Age: 24
Glasses: technically. Not required to see
Marks: Scar on right side of forehead from scalp to eyebrow (fading slowly, the tan helps)
Location: Greater Vancouver Area, British Columbia, Canada

Van Fanel Cosplay (pre-scar): http://img20.imageshack.us/img20/999...1706381304.jpg
Junk Guild/360 Avatar Picture (approx 2 weeks post-scar): http://img145.imageshack.us/img145/8923/mevatarjs8.jpg
MSN Avatar Picture (5 months post-scar): http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/4885/img0356s.jpg

As you may have noticed, I don't mind being topless. I also have no skills with sewing whatsoever, so I getting costumes commissioned is my prime choice. Never worn a wig or makeup before, but I'd consider them for sure. And one day I'll figure out how to go about creating space marine type armor from games like Gears and Halo.

I mainly watch mecha anime, but I do explore other genres.

I look forward to seeing your suggestions!

OK, I'll give 5'9", mostly round, brown hair & blue eyes, willing to try wigs or crossplay (already plotting for Halloween, bought the wig 2 months ago!)

Three shots available here: http://photobucket.com/DarkBaroness

I haven't done any anime characters since doing a poorly-constructed Sailor Mercury in my 3rd year at college.... Sewing flannel-backed pleather boot covers by hand kind of turned me off for a while!

Recommendations would be much appreciated! Since getting back into Halloween with a vengeance, I've done a store-bought Supergirl, House's Dr. Cuddy, and a variation on my beloved Baroness from G.I. Joe.

I'm expecting a wave of blue haired characters >.>


What about Kallen Stadtfeld [Code Geass] You have the hair length, if you dyed it red, your petite and fair skinned. That would be mine ^_^


Sorry I'm posting twice, just wanted a few more ideas :]

I have already done Maes Hughes and Zabuza. Looking play anyone from a game or anime that has similar facial features. I will def. wear a wig if need be. I just don't want to shave my face haha.

Previous suggestions:

Hwang Seong [Soul Calibur/Blade]

Mitsurugi [Soul Calibur/Blade]

Asuma Sarutobi [Naruto]

Gimmi more gimmi more

Picture timeee

Anyone have a good male character, most likely crazy, with anger problems or just mysterious/quiet? I've thought about Nova from Bleach but I wanted other output.

I'm 5'7" 145 lbs fairly lean, light brown hair. Any ideas? Something with a hat or hair like mine is ideal so I don't have to do a wig. I only have a few days before CONvergence, so I gotta do something fairly easy. Otherwise I'll just have to resort to Yusuke which I've already done.

Who to cosplay as...

Hello!

Looking to cosplay but have NO clue who to go as.
I had already decided to go in my handmade Slowpoke costume (you know, from pokemon)..
but seeing as I'm going to be going to the con two days in a row, I might as well go as two things.

Ht:5'6
Hair:Bronze(right now)
Eyes:Blue
Skin:Pale (but i'm a sfx makeup artist so i could change that easily)
Dress:American-punk influenced Lolita

Can do wigs, crossplay, contacts, anything. Not picky.
Just nothing toooo skimpy.
I'm top heavy and don't wish to be falling out.

:P
