Cosplay Ideas for Thin Guy

Hello, I am going to be doing my first cosplay in a few months but I'm having trouble coming up with something that would look good for my body type. As a quick description, i'm 6ft tall 140lbs with dark brown hair and I wear glasses. I'm not sure how to describe my complexion but I'm 1/2 asian if that helps.

The only thing I've come up with so far is Kyoya but I'd like a few more options. I like a lot of the older anime's like Cowboy Bebop and Neon Genesis Evangelion but none of those characters would suit my body type. I also like video games like TF2 and BioShock.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Yukio from Blue Exorcist , Sebastien or Claude from Black Butler, Rintarou Okabe from Steins Gate Shinro from Durarara, Spike from Cowboy bebop! Do you like final fantasy? You could be Noel or Genisis? darien/Tuxedo mask from sailor moon, yusuke from Yu Yu Hakusho

Thank you for these... I really like Yukio and Shinro. I only wish I could pull off Spike or Tuxedo Mask.

I agree Yukio would be a fabulous choice! A couple more, Uryu Ishida from Bleach, Jin from Samurai Champloo, Mousse from Ranma 1/2 and Sousuke Aizen from Bleach.

Whatever you choose, good luck! The world needs more male cosplayers!

OH COME ON my boyfriend is 6'6'' and 150 and he has a fine time finding costumes. I can't understand why it would be an issue with anime lol I mean the super thin pretty boy is a well understood standard. Some taller/lithe male characters for you then:
Zer0 from Borderlands 2
Lelouche any version from Code Geass
Shinjiro Aragaki from Persona 3
Alucard from Hellsing
Mephisto from Ao no Exorcist
Stein, or Shinigami-sama from Soul Eater
Shizuo Heiwajima from Durarara
Tuxedo Mask from Sailor Moon
Russia from Hetalia
Nnoitra from Bleach is like 7 foot
Soubi from Loveless
Elfman from Fairy Tail
Almost any guy from Kuroshitsuji pretty much (seriously they're all super tall and lanky)

I just. Yeah. I like really thin guys! You are not at a shortage if you want to play up your body type. And even if you go outside that who cares if it makes you happy.

You may also want to consider crossplay. A lot of thin guys look really good in skirts. Better than some girls do, even.

Choose a bishie. Any bishie.

But yeah. I really wanted to say Slenderman... It seemed like a pun at the time!

I bet you could be a cool Kaneda! He's not really the standard skinny bishie type but he is a cool guy (and I think there should be more Kaneda cosplayers so I'm hugely biased don't listen to me)
