Need Help: Cosplay n00b Looking for Ideas

Hey guys, I just registered here but I've lurked for a long time. This is really a multipurpose thread, so help any way you can if you don't mind.
Anyway, I'm a 16 year old redhead of average build (5' 9", Muscular but not skinny) who is looking for costume ideas. I've been racking my brain for characters from books, games, TV, movies, anything that I can portray, and I just can't come up with any good ideas.

I already know the most obvious pick (at least to me :P) would be Ron Weasley from Harry Potter. I love Harry Potter and would be glad to do that, but one really should have a group for HP. I have Rupert Grint's exact level of hair color and complexion (red hair, no freckles, pale skin), for reference.
I'm trying to think of characters that are recognizable and not too obscure, even from animes. I can find a way to catch myself up and learn about them (probably just watch said anime lol).

Sorry for the wall of text (you're probably all ), last thing I have to say is I have a few restrictions--
  • No wigs.
    No Bleach, Naruto, Hetalia, or Dragonball Z characters, please.

I lied earlier, one last final thing. Thanks in advance for anyone who sifted through this thread and decided to help me. I appreciate it a megaton.

Either Kaoru or Hikaru (one of the Hitachiin twins) from Ouran High School Host Club. It seems that, fortunately, their hair color is often percieved as close to the Weasely twins from HP. And I can guarantee you that many a fangirl will recognize you. :3

Shiro from Fate/Stay Night. His normal clothes are pretty boring but he does have a school uniform. You could add to the costume by either carrying a stuffed lion that he bought for Saber or Archer's swords which he copies later in the series.

hahaha no not really. thing is, i never really thought about ganondorf because firstly my skin is super pale, and secondly, my brother looks exactly like ganondorf. ganondorf must be tall, not 5' 9". my brother is 6' 3" and has the exact same facial hair and general face shape as ganondorf, so i never thought to bother because i figure he'll cosplay him someday.
