Female cosplays for a tall girl

I'm a girl who is 5'7 and very thin. I sometimes feel silly cosplaying as short girls and I'm getting tired of crossplaying. Are there any taller female characters you can think of? I know the girl from Love Con is my height but I don't think she has any recognisable outfits.

I second Yuko! <3

What about Luka Megurine? She's actually supposed to be 5'4" (apparently), but since she's supposed to be 20 years old I'm sure it's perfectly fine for her to be a couple inches taller. xD In addition to her default outfit there's plenty of variations you can cosplay based on songs (but please don't do Magnet, it's cool and all but extremely overdone these days xD; ).

Isn't Isane from Bleach supposed to be really tall? I definitely agree about Yuko- tall, thin, and elegant, and WOW on all her amazing outfits!

If your super skinny and tall it doesn't matter really! I would cosplay short girls... just don't stand next to anyone short LOL

But uh... a lot of magical girls like Sailor Moon are "short" but they're legs are miles long so anyone can cosplay them :3

You could cosplay Princess Zelda, who is tall compared to other LoZ characters. Princess Peach is also tall compared to other Mario characters. I am 5'8" myself and I cosplay whatever character I like. If you want to cosplay height appropriately, just make sure that your character is taller than the others from the same series in comparison.

To be honest 5'7" isn't THAT tall. I mean, yeah, it's generally taller than average, but it's not like you tower above the crowds or anything(I'm 5'8"). So look at you fav anime/video games and pick a character you really like. As long as she's not extremely small/petite/chibi-like in comparison to the other characters, you can probably pull her off just fine without looking ridiculous. Video games are especially good to look at, they tend to have taller girls rather than cute petite ones(eg. Samus from Metroid, Zelda, Sheik, Midna, ect... from Legend of Zelda, pretty much every girl from Soul Calibur, a good deal of the Fire Emblem girls, many of the Final Fantasy girls, and the list goes on...). As for anime, try and avoid the animes that have an extremely cute chibi-ish style and/or characters. But once you get past that there are tons of options out there.
