Below you will find some pictures of me. Most are recent with a few older pictures to show hairstyle/look versatility.

Specs (as if I'm a car!):
Height: 5'11''
Weight: 150lbs
Eyes: Brown
Body: Athletic
Color: Indigo (maybe not)

Thank you in advance!
Thanks for your opinion =] And for you, you remind me of Maes Hughes a little (FMA) and I defiantly saw Zuko from Avatar the Last Airbender in you. I also think you could pull of Kamina from Gurren Lagann =]

Hi, I am reposting because I look totally different now, and am totally willing to crossplay, use wigs, contacts, etc.
however, I don't want to wear anything particularly... showy.

pictures!

There's a picture.

Thanks, blindingwhite. I never though about cosplaying characters from FMA, but it seems I've been recommended by quite a few people to do so. I do also love Ouran Host Club so I'll take it into strong consideration. As for you:

Try Yuki from Galaxy Railways. The curling of your hair reminded me of her:

Might also want to think about Lt Malvin from Pumpkin Scissors:

More recommendations for myself are always welcome =)

Sorry about the repost everyone, but I got skipped a couple pages back, haha.

Okay, so.

I'm usually into cute, girly cosplays and need some new ideas (other than the growing list in my signature, haha) pertaining to that style. Besides that, can anyone give me some suggestions for girl characters with big props? I'd love to try something like that!

As for my looks... I have a curvy build (but not overweight) and I'm about '5"6. I have big blue-green eyes and a bit of a baby face, heh.

http://i41.tinypic.com/j76fsp.jpg
http://i41.tinypic.com/t9jgk5.jpg (my eyes aren't usually this green nor is my hair so shiney/orangey)
http://i303.photobucket.com/albums/n...an/whodoi2.png (a bit older from last year, but that's a more-accurate eye/hair color)

Thanks! <3

pitty you'd say Itsuki since my friend has now found someone who wants to be Itsuki meaning I'm gonna be Kyon
and yeah I've been compared to Jack Black once before (it annoys me to be compared to him)

Well, I don't watch a ton of anime with cuter characters in it, but one that might work is Akira Takizawa from Eden of the East. As I said, I'm not superbly good at this, but I think she has somewhat of a similar face to yours, plus you could probably pull off her hair really well.



Also, I wanted to repost mine, because I think it might've been skipped because my old picture sucked >.<

Things you might not be able to tell from this picture: My hair goes down to about my mid-back (though it grows really fast, which is why it's shorter in the picture), and I am 5'8" tall.

So...any suggestions??

Thanks in advance ^.^

Hahaha... Ha... -Nervous laugh goes here-
Normally I've got ideas for myself but this year, I'm drawing blanks. Ah well, so any suggestions would be great!

http://i90.photobucket.com/albums/k2...ernity/sam.jpg

Side note! My hair no longer does that thing with the weird blond-ish looking streaks toward the front and it goes to about half way down my neck in a boyish cut.

Additional info;
Height : 5'9"
Weight : 127 lbs
Contacts? Wear them
Crossplay? Don't mind at all, actually prefer it really. c:
Wigs? Don't mind them either~!

http://www.cosplaylab.com/cosplayers...stumeid=155039

I was thinking of making Belle from this dress (This is also the most normal picture of me I have lol):
http://www.cosplaylab.com/cosplayers...stumeid=173398


Hair: slightly past the shoulder, dark brown
Eyes: Brown-Hazel
Height: 5'2"
Weight: 140
Build: Athletic-ish (strong arms, legs not so much lol)

I think that's all :3

Hey everyone I'm new to cosplaying and looking for some ideas
I am also asking for a friend who is stuck for ideas but doesn't have a cosplay.com account yet.


Me:

Height: around 161cm
Weight: 52kg
Hair: Black, chest-length.
Wig: No
Eyes: Brown/Dark
Crossplay: Preferably not.
Sewing: Yes, a little.
Measurements: 91-66-93 (cm)

I don't think it's possible for me to get a good wig on my budget haha so I am planning to use my real hair if I do cosplay and would prefer girls over the hassle of chest-binding and things O_O

I am quite self-conscious and don't want to cosplay anything too revealing etc.
Umm I would prefer something that covered my butt just for peace of mind XD, skirts are good. Also I have alot of bruises and cuts on my legs and would prefer stockings/socks/pants...

http://i569.photobucket.com/albums/s...-17at17449.jpg
http://i569.photobucket.com/albums/s...y-le/green.jpg
http://i569.photobucket.com/albums/s...y-le/mauve.jpg
Oh also that is me in my icon.

My friend:

Height: 155cm
Weight: 47kg
Hair: Brown/Black, apx chest-length if straight
Wig: Ok, but preferably not.
Eyes: Brown/Dark
Crossplay: Yes.
Sewing: No.
Measurements: 77-65-87 (cm)

She would also like to tell you she is "flat and can cosplay little boys XD" lol and is looking for a cosplay close to what she already looks like
And she adds that she is fine with everything except backless or strapless dresses.

http://i569.photobucket.com/albums/s...-le/Sandra.jpg
http://i569.photobucket.com/albums/s...e/sandra-1.jpg
http://i569.photobucket.com/albums/s...066_529552.jpg

It's our first time cosplaying and I think we'd both prefer simple cosplays haha but any suggestions at all are welcomed.

Thank you so much in advance for anyone takes the time to do this
