Easy cosplay for a tall skinny guy?

My boyfriend is coming with me to Ohayocon 10 in January, and I would love to have him dress up as somebody. The problem is, I really don't have much time to work on anything but my costume, since it's very time consuming.

He's tall (6'0), skinny, and has spikey black/brown hair. Any characters fit that description? I thought about Ryuk from deathnote, but the makeup and details would take too much time.

ps - I THINK this is the right forum for this question.....

Why dont you let him decide, since he'll be doing it?

With that said, does he even WANT to? Or is this all your idea to push him?

Lelouch Lamperouge (Li Brittania)/Zero from Code Geass. Should be pretty easy.

I don't let him decide because I'll be making and paying for it, and he doesn't have any ideas either.

I asked him if he would cosplay if I made something for him and he said yes. It's either that, or he's hell-bent on wearing his Slipknot mask, with blood all over it. No thanks.

I know he'd have more fun with that....more fun pissing me off. He knows that I can't stand that band, and he knows that it would drive me crazy if he did that.

No disrespect intended, but I didn't ask for judgment on WHY I asked this question, just suggestions for costumes.

Mhmm, understandable.

Well, my suggestion would be a bloody Slipknot costume, since that would be fun for him.

Fun for the cosplayer being the point of cosplaying, and all. And you wouldnt have to even work on it; it's win win, innit?

Watanuki from xxxHolic or perhaps any character from Organization XIII, they all are pretty tall characters. Maybe Kyon or Koizumi from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.

A picture would probably help spark some more ideas.

Sebastian from Kuroshitsuji is tall and thin!
(And seriously, carrying around silverware and a silver tray as props = awesome)

Step 1: Pick a random anime.
Step 2: Profit???

Haha, but really, tall skinny guys seem to be a theme in a lot of anime. How about Heero from Mobile Suit Gundam?

Honey, 6'0" is hardly tall these days, especially for a male.

Here's an idea: have him cosplay Lady Gaga. All you'd have to buy him is the wig/shades, and then dress him in whatever flashy girl clothes you already have 8D
