costume for a "non-traditional" cosplayer
I was inspired by Nine's post in the other thread to ask this . . . all of the regs in the area anime club I'm attending have kinda gotten into cosplay (I'm the resident total nut, though ^^). So sometimes we talk about it at meetings, and one of the regs has expressed on several occassions that he's kinda frustrated. I think he wants to cosplay, but he keeps saying there's no one he can cosplay as. I admit to being stumped too. I don't think he's big into the idea of cosplaying totally against "type".
There's not really much of a delicate way to put this. He's about . . . 5'11", big frame, and he's African American. He wants to cosplay, but does say (and I fear it's true) that characters he could do are usually random people in the background. He has a lot of presence, so I think he'd be a great cosplayer. C'mon, somebody must be able to think of something. I seriously considered asking him to be my Sakura (for a skit idea), but I don't think he'd go for it, lol. He really likes the old school stuff, which I'm not very familiar with . . .
