Question Suggestions for a masked character?

Would anybody mind suggesting a masked character to cosplay or crossplay(ideally a full face/head mask in this case).
Additional criteria: a katana wielder would be a plus but not necessary

Info: Average height male and slim build

Characters of any kind are welcome. Thanks.

Masked/Katana:
- Ryu Hayabusa - Ninja Gaiden

Masked:
- Tuxedo Mask - Sailor Moon (A win for any male here)
- Masked G - Arland Atelier series** (Uses a cane with a sword in it, if that counts)
- Haku - Naruto
- Phantom - Phantom of the Opera**
- Zero - Code Geass
- Link - Zelda
- Cubone and Marowak - Pokemon (Probably a few more pokemon)
- Char Aznable**

** - Only eye-masks, not full face.

All I can think of, but hey, one fits your criteria.

Reality: Recycled or no cosplay at all. Got to love commissioning! Thanks everyone!! Serious thanks to Dulcinea, who actually made the deadline for the accessories far in advance and of outstanding quality. Sucks they won't be used.

Here are a few I could think of off the top of my head. ^^

Toakaka- Blazblue
Hakumen-Blazblue
Celty-Durarara
Yomotsu Hirasaka (Aka 12th)-Mirai Nikki
Knight Solaire-Dark Souls
Izanagi-Persona 4
Deadpool- Marvel
Black Mage- Final Fantasy Tactics

And then of coarse we get into the Miscellaneous stuff, DeadMau5, Object Heads, ect.

Wow (really wasn't expecting replies this quick), thanks. Both Haku and Black mage seem quite interesting as far as males go. Any more female character suggestions?

Oh, I misread and thought you DIDN'T want females too.

Okay. How about:


Full Mask:
San - Princess Mononoke

Half Mask:
Jade/Kitana/Mileena - Mortal Kombat

Eye Mask:
Sailor V - Sailor Moon




Crossplay is fun. If you are thinking about it, try it. It's a blast.

You could do a tokusatsu hero, like stuff from Power Rangers/Super Sentai or Kamen Rider.

hmm Celty and black mage come to mind for me too, but if you wanted to cosplay someone with a really intricate type of mask i'd say Corvo, from dishonered

Zero from Code Geass has a whole helmet, though he tends to use guns as opposed to a katana. Another crossplay idea is Hei from Darker Than Black, and he has knives for weapons.

If you're a Legend of Korra fan, there's Amon, or any of the masked Equalists. (Amon is in the center, two Equalists are behind him). That could be a lot of fun!

You could always do masked gijinkas of things like Pokemon or Portal robots, for example, if you're really set on the whole face covering. With designs like that you have some freedom to work in elements that you like

Not a full mask (just upper face), but there is also Sync the Tempest from Tales of the Abyss.
