EndThisRapture: I think you'd look good doing characters who are most expressive through their eyes - the profile pic of you lookin-thu-the-lashes is especially captivating. I second the Madam Red suggestion ^^ Miss Deep from Read or Die, Chloe from Noir.

Alright guys. I may have posted back here a year or two ago, but have since changed Significantly since then.

Now, the age old question: Who the heck should I cosplay? I love crossplaying, though my latest achievements have been Kinon from Gurren Lagann and Kaylee Frye from Firefly. I have no issue with wigs, wings, or colored contacts, so I can work with pretty much anything.

I had been playing with Esther from Trinity Blood, but there's no chance I can complete this costume by August 2010 on a college Student's budget.

Height: 5'6, 5'7 when I lie or wear heels.
Frame: A little round in the waist and hips. Not much of a bust.
I'm 20, and can pass from anywhere from 18-22.

Be nice. This pic is still almost a year old. >< I've lost some weight in the stomach since this was taken.

Hey guys~ Back again with the age old question!

Age: 17
Height: 5'8" 5'9"
weight: 123 ish
not super busty but not flat chested.

There's a few things that come to mind that you could pull off. Some of them are cliche, but I'll throw them out anyway. I think I will probably hit some things you may not know or care about.

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!

Looking for some inspiration! I'm finishing up an Aerith costume and planning a Kurogane (Tsubasa) costume, but I'd like a few suggestions if anyone feels like it! Thanks! (As you probably guessed, I'm more than up for crossplaying!)

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!
