Cosplay for dad

My dad is cool. Really. So he wants to cosplay with me at AWA, but doesn't want his face to be shown. He just doesn't want people too see how old he is (HE SAID IT. NOT ME.).

He's 6'2 and a bit overweight.

I can't take a picture of him since I don't have a camera.

He should be proud to be older and cosplaying! Not ashamed!! I think that's way awesome.

Without a pic of him it isn't THAT hard to help, but we don't know what skills you or him have to make something. If you like Kingdom Hearts, you can get or make an OrgXIII coat and put a blackout mask in the hood and be any range of ORG members. I'm not very familiar with anything else, other then mascot costumes..Could you give us ideas of what you are able to make or if you have to buy, and what kinda os genras he would like to do (like action, horror, comedy ect)

Roll with it and do a character that's supposed to be older, so he either rocks it or fools everyone into thinking it's a great makeup job? Something like Iroh from Avatar, Indiana Jones (especially in the more recent movies... Harrison Ford really needs to give it up XP), several of the Hokages from Naruto, and if he's willing to try some more original styles, there's plenty of variation for Star Wars, steampunk, Star Trek, etc. and any full armour or mascot suits too could work. (And if you're really good with electronics, Kevin Flynn in Tron: Legacy is pretty darn awesome) I'm afraid that's all that comes to mind at the moment.

The first thing that comes to mind is Dad Egbert/Crocker (even better if you went as John or Jane along with him -- d'aaaawwwwww), for somewhat obvious reasons. It has the bonus of having an optionally covered face, or having his face show to reveal that he is about the right age. If you're a Homestuck, I think that doing a duo with him would make a great option (or not a duo and just have him as "that awesome guy who is the right age to cosplay Dad").

Other than that, I'd say to stick with characters that are a bit older. Indiana Jones is a good suggestion. I can't really think of any characters that would have covered faces (aside from mascot costumes), except for pretty much any slasher film villain, but I'm not sure how viable of an option that is. ;P

I have seen people in their 60s cosplaying. I don't see shame to them, I am actually happy to see them taking part. I want to be like them and still cosplaying at 60.


BUUUUUUUUT if he insists, there's....


Full Mask:
- Darth Vader (Star Wars)
- Action Bastard (Shin Chan)
- Naraku (Inuyasha) *Ape cloak*
- Ryu (Ninja Gaiden)
- Shredder (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)

Half Mask:
- Hakuoro (Utawarerumono)
- Char Aznable (Gundam)
- Kamina (Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann)
- Zabuza (Naruto)
- Team Rocket Grunt (Pokemon) *Some have black eye mask things going*
- Kain (Final Fantasy 4)
- Edge (Final Fantasy 4)

No mask/Concealed face:
- Dr Tomoe (Sailor Moon)
- Orca (.Hack)
- Mayuri (Bleach)

Then you have various super heroes as mentioned. Ironman, Batman, Spiderman...etc.

Update: August 10th.... still nothing.

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.

Agreed on Dad from Homestuck, I mean it's a little self explanatory isn't it? Plus it's pretty common for Dad cosplayers to cover the face since he's not actually shown with a face (beside his nose) in the comic.

Dad cosplayers are always pretty well recieved and it's a simple cosplay to put together too.

We were thinking that I could be John and he could be Dad or I'd be Jade and he'd be Grandpa. XP

Do a couples cosplay..
Like if you are Choji, he should be Choji's dad.
Just an example
Couples cosplays are the best.

You should go for it! Everyone seems to love Dad cosplays, and an actual father/daughter duo would be amazing. You two will be quite popular, I'm sure, especially since most Dad cosplayers seem to pair up with a Mom instead of a kid.

If he's willing to do a Grandpa, Grandpa/Jade is another option.
