1. You could definitely pull off an Alice from Alice in Wonderland. Do any version but the lolita kind or the bloody dark kind (sighs at the overuse). If you're into Tim Burton's interpretation with his Alice film coming up, then try for more of that look. Unfortunately, this would require you to have no wig. Cheap costume for fun maybe?

2. Lily (Evans) Potter as a student at Hogwarts. Just make sure the wig isn't an unnatural red.

3. Jane from Disney's Tarzan. Tough costume, but I've never seen a bad Jane with my own eyes.

4. Ariel from Disney's A Little Mermaid. Don't do the mermaid version though.

5. Princess Yue from Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Hope this helps!
Thanks! I actually think the Jane sounds pretty fun~ I'm a huge fan of Victorian style.
and the Alice sounds cute too~
thanks alot ^^

Hello to everyone out there

Recently, I was given a few suggestions on who to cosplay, but that was it. The person who suggested these told me I should go for tall characters, like me.

I was wondering if anyone could give me some help on these, such as which ones are good/bad, and stuff like that. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Well, here's the list:
1. Mori - Ouran Host Club
2. Vash - Trigun
3. Ayame - Fruits Basket
4. Shigure - Fruits Basket
5. Toya - Cardcaptor Sakura
6. Kurogane - Tsubasa

well it also depends on how your going at this. You want to go with characters you look like and could probebly pull off very well? Or just more of the fun casual type and choosing a character you like. even if you don't have that "look"
so maybe a picture of yourself would help others choose characters too?

I've been thinking about this one...
and I think you could possibly make a cute Rikku. maybe her FFX version? or since you don't want to go with some too revealing like her obvious Theif dressphere, what about another one? Like Trainer, or Black Mage?
look kinda like her and would be really cool too ^^

or someone else could be Komugi from Nurse Witch Komugi.

Link to my photo.(There is some pictures of my wig in there)

Do I look like anyone? (Both male and female are okay for me! Even though I had not tried binding yet...)
It would help a lot if anyone could point out who I can cosplay as!

Extra info:
I am 155cm, and not very busty nor flat...(Like, B?) Short black hair(original) with bangs(might consider cutting it).
I do not mind cutting my hair...
If any other pictures is needed, please tell me! (Like, front,side,back views...?)

Thank you for the help!

So I'm kind of dead in ideas for who to be at future cons. I am actually trying out crossplay with Switzerland from Hetalia, but I don't know if I can pull it off. I really think my face is too girly. I'm open to any suggestions though! I am a bit conservative in what I wear, so I probably won't take any suggestions to characters in skimpy outfits.

I like doing generally overlooked characters either in cosplay or in whatever they're part of because I am camera shy and tend to not like to have too many pictures taken of me. I just like making costumes and dressing up.

What I've done/will be doing:
~Theresa from Fable II
~Erza Scarlet from Fairy Tail
~Switzerland from Axis Powers Hetalia
~Megara from Disney's Hercules

Stats:
~Longish brown hair (some say red, some say blonde, but I think brown is more like it)
~I haven't weighed myself in a while, so I have no idea how much I weigh, but just know I'm no skinny person (so no bare belly characters! ew)
~height: 5'6"
~eyes: usually greenish grey

Thanks for your help guys!

Hello guys, I'm looking for ideas! :3

Eyes: Dark Brown.
Hair: Dark Brown. A little past my shoulders. I'm willing to buy wigs, but I prefer to use my real hair or the wig I have at the moment ;^; (I'm too poor to buy a good wig now)
Height: 5'5" (a little more than 1.65cm)
Weight: About 121lb I think? (55kg)
Build: I think I have the "average anime girl" type of body, but I'll let you decide that ^^U

Pictures: I look like this with long hair. I look like this with my real hair.

Etc.: I'd prefer stay away from crossplay, skimpy outfits and contacts if possible. I always get Rukia, Sailor Mars and Saturn, Tifa and Rinoa xD So please don't say those. (I'll get Rukia soon, don't worry xD) Now in my country is SUMMER so I'd like to think some summer outfits too ^_^

Cosplays I've done: Haruhi Suzumiya, Mikoto Suoh, Kagura Sohma, Mio Akiyama and Amu Hinamori.

Someone maybe like Hagumi from honey and clover? She is soooooo cute! (you would need a wig though!)
Ayu Tsukimiya from Kanon is also cute beyond cute! And also short, but again, a wig is in need
Yuka Uchida from Minami Ke is adorable too ~!
Mei Sunohara from clannad is cute and has black hair!
Or maybe Machi? form Nagasarete Airanto.

But yeah, these are just a few thoughts, I don't know whether you agree or not! xD But I hope I've helped somewhat!
Sorry about that dear xD. Thanks for the help! I don't know some of the characters you posted but I'll go check them out. I can't thank you enough! )

Anyone else got suggestions?

Legatosgurl: Whoa, first of all, you totally remind me of my middle school history + journalism teacher! Anyway I think red is a good color for you ^^ Therefore: Momo from Breath of Fire III, or Juliet from Romeo x Juliet.

Red Chrono: I vote for Ikuto ^^

Rikku92: I second the Alice suggestion! Other than that, one of Sheryl Nome’s outfits from Macross Frontier, Mint from Tales of Phantasia, Elwing from Shining Tears, Estell from Magna Carta.

Lady Lore: Hmm, female-wise, Yumeru from Valkyrie Profile. For crossplay, Capeta from Capeta.

Yukii Lu: The link to the ‘anime girl’ doesn’t seem to work for me. Anyway, the tones of gold and yellow in the Halloween costume photo reminded me of Princess Ok-Soo from The Myth (a 2005 Jackie Chan movie), especially in this scene where she performs a dance for Jackie’s character. Other characters I think you can do quite well: Riddel from Chrono Cross, Sachiko from Maria-sama ga Miteru.

Itstribbling: For Hetalia and Baccano, which characters are you leaning towards? I’m assuming the blonde ones? If so, Baccano’s Miria would be pretty snazzy. Other than those two titles though, if you feel like slicing yourself some bangs, I think you’d make a cool Chelsea Rorec from Tokyo Underground! Also, I think something with an elvish flavor would work well for you too, like Deedlit from Record of Lodoss War, or Legolas from Lord of the Rings.

Aunini: According to your older posts I’ve gathered that you stand some six feet seven inches tall lol, so my suggestion would be to take on a character with a full presence, and dominating air >;3 With that said, out of your list, Vash would be most excellent followed closely by Kurogane ^^ I could also nudge you in the direction of maybe Alucard from Hellsing or The King of All Cosmos from Katamari Damacy.

Shiyo: Holy crap, you are sooo Zorg from the Fifth Element! … but honestly I think Zoro would be splendid for you ^^

Tsunny: Lots of cuteness going on! I also think with your type of eyebrow structure, there’s potential to do a nice, mellowed out/ stoic kind of character. On top of that, depending on how you feel like styling the wig, which may or may not mean physically cutting away at it, you can go for Wolfram from Kyou Kara Maou, Honey-senpai from Ouran Host Club, or Howl from Howl’s Moving Castle ^^ All crossplays, but they’ve each got their own measure of charm, petite-ness and fire-burning passion!

Elorviel: You’ve got such a deliciously lush head of hair ^^ And I think Meg should be on the top of your list ^^ As generally overlooked characters go, one of Estelle Bright’s costumes from the Sora no Kiseki series, and (also another character named) Meg from Suikoden II.

Tanooki kim: Due to my love of Tony Taka and the Shining series, I’m going to have to keep pushing for these characters XD so please excuse the selfishness on my part ^^ Kureha from Shining Tears x Wind. And I vote for Tsubaki!

XuzumakiXsoraX: Hard to visualize exactly how close to black from red your hair is, (perhaps tinged a dark burgundy?) but maybe Kallen from Code Geass? But since you’re willing to contact and wig it up, I will yet again throw out characters I would like to see out in the cosplay fray more: Hibari Ginza from Speed Grapher, and Koda Kumi’s pale turquoise elevator girl outfit from her “BUT” PV.

FumikoSan: Your photos give off a fresh, bright-eyed and bushy tailed, yet a relatively calm and collected feeling at the same time ^^ How about taking it back old school with Ayeka from Tenchi Muyo?! With summer in mind, there’s also Sumire Kanzaki from Sakura Taisen (she has a bunch of different styles/ outfits).

Yukina_2: Sakuya from Okami! Then you can tote around a cute amaterasu wolfie plushie ^^
