Cosplay Ideas for Shortness ^^ 5"1


Height: 5"1
Weight: 98 lb
Bust: 32"
Waist: 22"
Hip: 31.5"
Concerned areas: Buggy/bag eyes, broad shoulders, butt...

My pictures are posted above. I've been truly inspired by the cosplayers who really do look like the character they dress up as. As in, their face shape, eyes, body, etc. really lines up. I've cosplayed as C2, and I think the picture is fine, but I don't think I reeeaaalllyy pull her off. She's much taller, has a paler complexion, and just an overall more mature looking face. I've cosplayed as Rinoa from ff8 and I feel the same way.

I love the cosplays for almost all the final fantasy characters, but again, I just feel my face is just too round/young and dark to line up with them.

I am honestly just curious as to what you think I look like. I love cosplaying as these characters, but I'm still in search for the anime/game character I can match up with, pretty well.

Your help is very much appreciated.

Thank you!

I think you would make a really good Yuffie. She has a young look and a similar face structure. Honestly, it doesn't matter at all if your skin is a little dark. Yuffie just decided to get a tan

Yuffie would be good, you could try Rhydia http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Rydia young or older versions even Yuna from FFX would be good.
I like tacos! I am the great Taco God.

I don´t really mind characters lenghts. Actually, you could always do the character as long as you like them. Small versions are IMO cuter than "normal" lenght versions ^^

May I ask you, do you prefer any certain hair color, and if your willing to use wigs? I can then tell you specific suggestions if a certain hair color is said (if I know any with that hair color of course xD). I know several guy and girl characters that are short (young) and have a round cute face, if that´s what you feel is the better alternative for you.
However, please don´t mind so much if you don´t look exactly/remind of the character (of course it´s a bonus if look matches, but not necessary), but I don´t want you to stop doing characters you actually like just because you´re short/have a round face. Cosplay is about to have fun! ^w^

Greetings kimberliiSUN,

Firstly, I wish I were as photogenic as you are. Secondly, some ideas to help with the brainstorming:

I think you would make a wonderful Sailor Mars, and she's only a touch taller than you at 5'3". If you'd rather, Sailor Mercury is 5'2".

As far as Final Fantasy girls go, I think you'd make a nice Edea from Final Fantasy VIII (I think she's slightly taller at about 5'5" but it's pretty close) - http://www.silindor.com/images/dolls/lith/ff/edea.gif

You would also make a nice Garnet from Final Fantasy IX. (I have no idea how tall she is, but I think she's relatively short.) - http://www.cosplayhouse.com/images/D...er_01-5-05.jpg

Hope these ideas at least get you started!

Sailor Saturn (http://th01.deviantart.net/fs6/300W/...y_blossoms.jpg) ! Heh.

And if you're interested in being something obscure, FOnewearl from Phantasy Star Online (http://www.pso-world.com/images/classes/fonewearl.jpg)

Rachel Alucard from Blazblue is rather tiny as well (http://pressthepsbutton.files.wordpr...el-alucard.jpg)

Hsien-ko from Dark Stalkers (http://media.giantbomb.com/uploads/1...enko_large.jpg)

Theres a LOT more short characters, but I thought you'd be good at those!

Thank you all for your input! I really do appreciate it. All these suggestions have gotten me motivated to look up more cosplays to try out! The ideas that I really liked were:

Sailor mars
Sailor Saturn
Rachel Alucard

@ KratosAurion28
Hello! As for hair color, I would go for almost any color. (I'll go for wigs!) I am concerned about lighter hair colors though, because once I put one on, it makes my skin tone appear much darker than it actually is. It may not seem so, but it's just a thingyyy of mine.

@ Visage
Thank you!

I guess my next quest is to figure out which one!

Garnet, or Azunyan is where my votes go...

You have the cute faze for Azu-nyan, but you're definitely pretty and could definitly pull off Garnet.

But then again, you'd also make a VERY lovely Yuffie. And even though Yuffie's a little more pale then you, it doesn't really matter. o_o; It's close enough, and you really COULD pull her off easy.

But yea. Those are where my votes go. :3

Ed's kinda tan for a blond, actually. That'd work. Also, your Deviantart pic made me think of Loran Cehack from Turn A Gundam, although he's probably around 5'5. Lenalee from D.Gray-man's about your height, I think, and she's Chinese, so she wouldn't be super-fair. I'm pretty sure she's darker than Allen, at any rate, though that's not saying much...

Y'know who might be really fun for you to cosplay is Edward from Cowboy Bebop.

Also agreeing with the folks who said Yuffie.

Sewing commissions are on hold, but I still do custom pattern-drafting. PM for details.

Thank you for all your suggestions, KratosAurion28! I looked at all of them, and I think my favorite was Skuld from Ah! My Goddess.

I'm also really liking Lenalee from D.Gray-man's. Thank you Garen! Her look is sooo cool.
