Need a new cosplay... help?

For the past few years I've been cosplaying Hinata (Naruto) and I want to try someone new but I'm not sure who. I want to do Haruhi (OHSHC) and am working on getting a compression shirt for it (I'm a c-cup and she's definitely not). My friends are thinking of going to Colossalcon this summer and it's a 4 day convention so having another cosplay would be nice. The other problem is that i'll be returning from a study abroad about a week before the con so whatever I make needs to be either really easy (aka hand sewing) or something I can closet cosplay. I could just go as Haruhi the whole weekend with a bunch of random casual outfits but I'm worried no one would recognize me.
What I would really like are ideas on who I should cosplay. I am 5'2", wear glasses (though I also have contacts), have short brown hair, and am open to female or male character suggestions (though it might be my first time crossplaying). If anyone has any suggestions I'd really, really appreciate it.

okay, these are some of my suggestion:

-these suggestions really depend on the length of your hair-

1. matt or light from deathnote ( they have pretty simple closet clothes)
2. tomo-chan from azu manga dioh
3. shinobu from love hina
4. kiki from kiki's delivery service
5. sakura kinomoto ( school uniform ver.) from sakura cardcaptors
6. Syaoran Li from sakura cardcaptors
7. lucca from black butler
9. Ritsu Tainaka from k-on

i donno if these help, but if not- i think the Haruhi cosplay idea you mentioned would be good. I'd think some people would notice you as casual Haruhi , yet when she's in the OHSHC unifom it's more reconizable, yet do what eva, i'm sure you'd look awesome. either way. *sigh* I wish I could go to a con that's 4 days long ^-^

I'll definitely keep those in mind. I was thinking of trying to cosplay Sakura at some point but forget... I would use the uniform for Haruhi except that the con's in June and I'd rather not fry. Also, I don't know if I'll be able to find something in the right color in time (since I'd rather not sew a suit by hand). Thank you so much for the suggestions, I really appreciate it!

I'm heavily biased in favor of my favorite fandom, of course, but looking at your photos, I think you'd make a lovely Sailor Saturn.
