Dark female adult cosplay?
Hi, I'm new to this site.
I need a little help for my next cosplay which gives me a headache now since weeks. Maybe someone has an idea and can give me an push into the right direction. If nothing works, I will have to go for an own creation but I would prefer an existing character.
My main problem is that I'm turning 28 soon and I really don't want to cosplay teenage girls anymore. But the list of female adult characters which fit my "taste" seems to be... non-existent >.>
Well okay, after reading the threads about How to find a fitting cosplay, these points should help to see what is important to me:
* Gender/Age: (Strong) female character which is a mature type. Not a schoolgirl, loli or similiar teenie - not a granny as well (so, from the looks 25-35 years old). Anime, Manga, Game, Rock - all is fine.
* Style: Gothic, Visual Kei or alternative I'll also take a "colorful" character and turn it into a "dark/gothic version" (I'm Gothic myself, so the dark part is important ^^; ). A Demon or Vampire would be all the better.
* Hair: I have long middle-blond hair with black highlights, but I have no problem in wearing e.g. a black wig. I also love playing with hair, attaching dozens of things to it.
* Skin: No full body painting but I own everything needed for temporary tattoos, fake scars/ears and whatever.
* Weather: The con is outside - in summer. The cosplay *NEEDS* to be bearable in hot weather - I can always add some kind of fitting jacket but I'm not going to strip when it's getting to hot xD (last year was... uff... very hot).
* Making: I can sew, I can airbrush, I can handcraft, I can repair my car myself... there are basically no limits in the degree of difficulty.
The closest character to this is Yuuko from xxxHolic, imho. I can't think of anyone else but I don't really like her clothing style.
It would be great if someone could give a few ideas. And I hope I didn't posted this in the wrong section. I wasn't 100% sure where to post.
