Looking for modest costume ideas

There are a lot of characters I would love to cosplay but I have a problem. Due to my religion I have clothing limitations. I need to have a skirt. My knees, elbows, and abdomen need to be covers, and I need to have a collar about on my neck. I also can't crossplay. For obvious reasons this makes cosplay difficult. Does anyone have any ideas.

Chrona from Soul Eater, but that manga is not exactly for religious people /imho, no offense intended, please don't hate me for saying it

You could do one of the girls form Sailor Moon in their winter school uniforms -long skirts, long sleeves. Does a sailor collar count?

Shugo Chara has quite a lot of costumes, particularly Suu and Temari are well covered up (Temari wears a kimono though, does that count?)

Sakura from Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles/Cardcaptor Sakura has a gigantic wardrobe, so I don't doubt that you will find something fitting there




Btw, may I ask what your religion is? *is very interested in religion*

Well you may want to tell us what you anime series you would like to cosplay as to narrow down the search.

There is also Rosette from Chrono Crusade, but she's a nun, so I'm not sure how that would fit for you.

You could cosplay Esther Blanchett from Trinity Blood! As I recall, she is a nun.

There is also Caterina Sforza from Trinity Blood, but her costume is much more intricate, imo.

Yukari from Paradise Kiss has a number of more modest outfits. Such as this one. This one if you added sleeves. If you look at the Paradise Kiss outfits on this website that other people have made you might find one that would work.

The other thing you could do is alter costumes a bit to make them suit what you are looking for. For example: if the costume has short sleeves you could make them three-quarter length.

Some historical fiction series might be simpler to alter. For example Lia's red dress from Le Chevalier D'Eon would only need a different neckline, with a collar added.

I am actually a huge soul eater fan. I was thinking that but i'm not sure because no one knows crona's gender.

I'm Jewish so I can't really cosplay a nun.

As far as anime, manga, and video games I'm into I have a lot of things I like so they would be hard to list. However I don't have any problem with getting into something new.

Crona is later releaved as a girl, just an odd one.
I think Crona would be your best option without doing a nun cosplay. ^-^;
;but I'll kept a look out and if I see any others, I message you.
yay for cosplay!

Maybe Larxene from Kingdom Hearts? You would just need to add a collar.

(Btw, I found all the TB-suggestions amusing XD)

Akage no Anne - the anime based on Anne of the Green Gables (I only know the Danish title and just roughly translated that) has pretty modest clothes

Sophie from Howl's Moving Castle wears a long, green long-sleeved dress, and I think your face fits her. /also thinks it has a collar but not sure.

Marie Antoinette from Rose of Versailles, but again unsure on the collar thing.

Pokemon - gijinka design for i.e Dustoc and Vespiqueen are quite modest, and with gijinkas you can always tweek the design to your taste

Fuu from Magic Knight Rayearth in her wedding dress, and there's also an illustration where she has a fully covering blue dress with a collar and all on.

Ru/Kraehe from Princess Tutu gets a GIGANTIC dress with long sleeves at one point in the series (The USA team for WCS this year made it, it looks sooo gorgeus http://community.livejournal.com/wcs...09.html#cutid1) But again, collar-business.

Sharon Rainsworth from Pandora Hearts - AND she has a high collar

Shinku from Rozen Maiden! And Suiseiseki from the same show (it could be that I got the name wrong, but I'm talking about the brunettes with the long green dress... I seem to have an unhealthy obsession with long green dresses?)

Other than that, always be sure to check out artbooks for alternate outfits and such.

Your outfit requirements totally match up to Noi Kasahara from The Wallflower

if tights/leggings count as leg coverage, rin tohsaka from fate/stay night might be an option. she wears a shorter skirt and thigh highs, but that could very reasonably be substitutes for a slightly longer skirt and tights/leggings. she wears a long sleeved red turtleneck. she also has another outfit with a skirt that's past the knees, and I believe a button down shirt that you could button up as much as nessacary for sufficient modesty in the neck/cleavage region.
