Hey everybody, I need some cosplay suggestions for my friend, picture of him can be found here (he's the guy on the right). He said he'd be up for pretty much anything, so somebody that he resembles would be nice (he's about 5'10"-ish). Keep in mind that this is his first time cosplaying, so something relatively simple would be preferable. Thanks. =)

Seeking Input

So I'm new to Cosplay (but not to costumes in general) and I have some ideas of characters I would like to eventually Cosplay, but I would like to know what you all think who I would be good at Cosplaying as, as it's good to have an outside perspective. ^.^

Stats:
Height: 5'2"
Weight: 155lbs.
Eyes: Green/Hazel
Hair: Dirty Blonde/ Light Brown
Pant Size: 12 (in USA)
Bust: 36 C
- Here is what I normally look like: Pic1 Pic2 Pic3 Pic4 the side profile looks a little weird because my camera was angled upward a little.
- I'm willing to show cleavage, but I know I'm a little on the chunky side so no bare midriffs or short-shorts for me.
- I prefer to use wigs
- I can use colored contact lenses, but I prefer not to.
- Any anime or video game character is fine (gory, no-gory, etc.)
- Favorite Anime's and video games: Ah! My Goddess, Final Fantasy series (mainly VII and X), Nadesico, Elfen Lied, Rah Xephon, Xenosaga, Please Teacher, Full Metal Alchemist, Full Metal Panic.
- the convention I plan on going to this year is Halloween weekend (Youmacon).
- I plan on getting into shape (mainly toning) in time for Youmacon by eating healthier and exercising. And hopefully loosing 10-20lbs. in the process.
-I'm used to constructive criticism (I'm an Art student).

I hope this is enough info. If you need more info, let me know! Thanks in advance!
-V

Ilena/Irene from Claymore. Difficulty level might be a bit high (holy crap belts), but our facial structure kinda reminds me of her.

and right now my hair is medium length, but I'm growing it back out, and am actually looking into hair extensions.
so really, any hair length is good for me, and any character. if I don't know them, I'll look into the series they're from. c:

thank you! c:
You could easily pull off Priscilla from Fire Emblem or Rena from Higurashi. Most of Rena's outfits aren't terribly complicated, and you get an excuse to carry a cleaver around. =D

Picture
Yeah, that's me. That's about as controllable as my hair gets too...

Height: ~6ft or just under... hard to tell these days.
Eyes: "Hazel" but not always the same... I've had everything from sapphire blue once or twice, to brown and back to green again... Greenish is my most common though.
Skin: Turns a mild tan fast if exposed to sun for a day or two xD, otherwise a ~little~ pale. But no never-seen-sunlight pale.

I can sew--but nothing fancy. I ~just~ barely managed to sew a hakama for larping in. Though it did prove quite durable.
Also, not a huge budget, but I ~do~ drive past a Jo-Ann's 2-5 times a week ^.^ so you'd be amazed how cheap I can get cloth for. N' I have a decent little singer sewing machine.
Tatsumi Saiga from Speed Grapher.

He has fabulous shark hair anyway, and you can probably get most of the outift poking around thrift stores. Also, you don't have to be clean-shaven. Lol.

Thanks in advance, everyone. <3
Maria of Silent Hill 2 comes to mind, but neh. It'd help if you posted more pictures of your face from non-Myspace-default angles.

Bah. How sad is it that I don't even have recent pictures of myself?
Oh well. Might as well get on with it.

I've already got a North Italy cosplay from Axis Powers Hetalia, but I'd like to see what else I could do. My lack in self confidence makes choosing on my own extremely difficult~.

Stats~
Height: 5'5-6" (I don't know?)
Body Type: Thin-Average (Wii Fit says I'm target weight :'D )
Hair: Daaark brown, typically an inch or less below chin
Eyes: Brown/Hazel? (also, has contacts (blind bat))
Wig?: Yuh?
Skin: Typically pale (what a night owl), but I'm Italian, so I can darken easily~
Gender: I can dress either way. I'm dressing as Italy, after all.

Hoho! I found a digitally altered picture~ :'D

But I always liked Galaxy Express 999 best personally...
Although she mostly factors into the series after about 10 eps in.
She's more prominent in the movies or in the series Captain Harlock.
There's a special on her & her sister Maetel when they were younger as well known as "Maetel Legend" (2001).

You can think of the Leiji Matsumoto works as existing more or less within the same universe, with the same characters having slightly altered histories throughout his various works.

So, I'm looking for some new cosplays to do, but my image has changed recently and I'm trying to decide what to do. To get a good idea of what I look like my Avatar is me, I have about the same length of hair that you can see in the picture (down to the base of my neck) and my beard has grown in fully instead of the bit that was in that picture and the glasses are real (although I can use contacts, just not every day). I pretty much look like Light Hohenhiem from Full Metal Alchemist every day

Also, since it's hard to tell, I'm pretty tall (6'4) and fairly thin. I'm not a huge fan of wigs since they never seem to work well on me. I'd be willing to shave my beard for a really good idea, but would prefer not to. I'm not willing to cut my hair though as I just started growing it out again a year ago and I don't want to go through that all over again. Dye is not out of the question, though.

Any thoughts?

As seen here
I could try, but her hair looks like it would be kind of hard to do @__@

Priscilla is so cute! I'll definitely consider her.
Hahaha, Rena is so creepy. I like this suggestion, too.

Thank you both! c:

Bwahaha, I was waiting for someone to call me out on that! Any of these three should do the trick. Of course, my hair isn't that long anymore, hah.

*totally not influence by avatar hairstyle*
You'd do a pretty nice Hagi, from Blood+. And I love Hagi, you have no idea how hard on my heart it is to suggest this character to anyone. xD

Besides that, your face is very "cosplay friendly" so I'll also suggest Bard, from Kuroshitsuji, and Orphe, from Meine Liebe. They are all very different characters, but I think they'd suit you. Hope you can get some ideas from this!
