Characters with short dark brown hair

I have a short dark brown wig...it resembles a cosworx scruffy...so it's short and quite scruffy. It goes to my ears and the bangs go just below my eyes.

EDIT: And when I say dark brown...I do mean dark. It's like 3 shades lighter than black. XD

I have no clue who to use it for though.

I'm up for almost anything...I'd prefer females (because I don't feel much like binding) but I can do males if need to be.

And no costumes that are TOO complex and bulky

So..please please please please suggest me some things. Thank you.

The great thing about dark hair is that you could cosplay any of the girls [except the transfer student] from Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei. Otherwise, AnimeCharacterDatabase is a great help.

Soo...I'm just gonna throw out some characters with short, brown to black hair with bangs, and you can decide what would work. xD Some might have the wrong hair color/style or a costume too complex, but I'm just trying to help give ya some ideas.

-Yuffie from Kingdom Hearts/Final Fantasy VII/FFVII:Advent Children/FFVII Dirge of Cerberus.
-Alice from Alice 19th.
-Haru from The Cat Returns.
-Yui from K-On!
-Xion from Kingdom Hearts.
-Haruhi Suzumiya from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.
-Irma from W.I.T.C.H.
-Sakura from Cardcaptor Sakura.
-Sakura from Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles.
-Selphie from Kingdom Hearts/KHII/Final Fantasy VIII.
-Erika from Pokemon. (She has many different outfits.)
-Kagura from Fruits Basket.
-Tea from Yugioh.
-Yuki from Vampire Knight.
-Yumi from Chobits.
-Kagura from Azumanga Daioh. [The one on the right.]
-Mizuki from Hana Kimi. [She's on the right.]
-Phoebe from Pokemon.
-If you can't find any characters that you would like to cosplay, you could do a human version of a brown-ish Pokemon (Eevee, Ursaring, Pidgey, etc.) and use the wig. You could design the costume any way that you want to resemble the character. Here is a Photobucket account that has a lot of Gijinkas you could look at and get an idea of what to do, and here is another in which they are in ABC order.

EDIT: Okay, I think I'm done now. lol

@Tifran: Thank you for the suggestions...but none of them work. Their hair is too light and/or their costume is too hard for me. Plus I've never even heard of any of the series their from.

@AmyAnn: I've tried using animecharactersdatabase in the past...but that site I find is not one bit helpful to me. I get pretty much the same results Tifran put up....wrong coloured hair and styles and from games/series that most have never even heard of (and I hear a lot of things females come from on that site are from hentais).

@Pokithepumpkin: Thank for the suggestions. Unfortunately pretty much all of them wont work for my wig. It's too short. The closest one to my wig was Phoebe but I'm not tan skinned and nor do I want to show that much skin.




Anymore suggestions people?

Hmm...that must be a very short wig. You might have to go with a boy character. I have two more suggestions though.
-Satsuki from My Neighbor Totoro.
-Ito Miura from W Juliet.

EDIT: I thought of two more. xD
-Meryl Strife from Trigun.
-Haruhi Fujioka from Ouran High School Host Club.

Sorry if these still don't work. Just tryin'.

If you like Pokémon, you can always do a Pokémon gijinka of own choice, and use that wig.

I can´t think of any characters with a dark brown scruffy.

Man..it sucks there's like no one I can use this wig for...if it weren't so dark I wouldn't be having this problem.

Like I said...I don't mind male characters...I just kinda wanted a female so I didn't have to bind (that and I rarely cosplays girls). So...feel free to suggest males too.

Thank you all for trying to help me out here. I really appreciate it. ^o^

Err watch out for some of the characters you find on characterdatabase.com.. I've made that mistake before when I was searching for characters to cosplay as, although as cool looking as they may be, all the links Tifran listed are from hentai games xD it's quite annoying when you're trynna find a regular person to cosplay as x___x
