A gaming/movie character or creature with a mask, preferably who cannot speak

Hi, everyone. For Kumoricon this year (third year now!), I have a general idea for what kind of cosplay I would like to do.

My first plan was to be a Big Sister from Bioshock, but considering my lacking technical skills and money, that does not seem like a plausible idea. So I would like to do something like this.

I am looking to be some sort of character that includes the following:

*Preferably female, but not required.
*A mask or facial covering of sorts -- this is most important, I love the idea of being "anonymous"
*A character with little or no dialog
* A character would it would be fun/scary to be in character as at a convention

So far, I've thought of being a Big Sister or a nurse from Silent Hill, but I've never played Silent Hill, so I'd feel bad cosplaying as something that I'm not a fan of (again).

Any suggestions would be highly appreciated!

it really depends on what you mean by dialog, do you mean audio as in hearing someone speak or just reading what they have to say on the screen.
*one* you dont have to be an absolute fan to cosplay as anything, and as far as anonymous cosplays , perhaps v for vendetta, samus from metroid, master cheif from halo, *big sister* is suppose to be very detailed so i wouldnt advise it not unless you have materials time and money, bio shock is a great game though ^^
also cant remeber its name but theres a creature of ocarina of time in zelda that wears a mask, as a matter of fact in manjoras mask theres lots of masks you can wear *these mask either transforms you into a certain object or species or it helps you motivate people or support side quest*

How about a Shy Guy from the Mario games? Wouldn't be very hard to make either.

Welllllll if you know A LITTLE about SH it shouldn't matter. Also due to the fact that the nurses are just killers with knives. Nothing special about them in the game just many evil characters. You know? So doing them probably won't give you anything of a hassel from some people.

excelent point to, they have no major roles in the game and especialy in the movie, i catergorize them as being a lesser abomination of some sort. so it really doesent matter, i think only a simplton would come up to you and start a big sh disscusion than critize you that you never played the game, i only played 3 of them, only because the games to me were becoming quite mundane. but thats just my opinion

Yeah AND if you still have some doubts some people will criticize you on cosplaying SH when you don't know it...do some research hahaha or just say you never played it but you've seen the movie OR tell them you find the nurse fascinating that you wanted to do it.

excactly, but knowing what it is atleast is a start rather than just seeing a pic and not know any of the series it self; if anyone have anything negative to say do what i do and just move on and enjoy the rest of the day, dont dwell on the situation. just keep swimming, swimming swimming.

I know you said preferably female, but Snake Eyes is one. Also, Shadow from FF6 (another boy one :< sorry)
I only keep thinking of male roles that don't speak though...it must be a guy thing ><

You could do a heartless enemy from Kingdom Hearts, too!

I can't think of any female characters, probably because I'm not a gamer...so my post is probably useless to you :P

Vega from the Street Fighters series is a male and he wears a mask (sometimes he takes it off though). He has very little dialogue, but none of the characters really speak in this game since it's fighting based.

Arakune from BlazBlue.
Nyx Avatar from Persona 3.
Taokaka from BlazBlue (she talks a lot though).

That's all I can come up with right now.

Sheik from Legend of Zelda? It's not a full on mask, but you'd be pretty unrecognizable.. if it worked for Zelda it could work for you!

Zant from Zelda: Twilight Princess. It'd be a pretty expensive costume, though, albeit cool looking.

Red X from Teen Titans? I don't remember him talking a lot.
