Heartthrob cosplay for males

Hey all, I need some ideas.

So, there's plenty of sexy female characters in anime.
Likewise there are plenty of sexy cosplayers of the characters.

I'm struggling trying to find possible cosplays to achieve the same effect.

Only I'm a dude.

Not only that, I'm a dude that can't tell which anime dudes are to girls what Yoko is to guys.

Basically, what male characters from anything are BEAUTIFUL.
I'm 6'3'' and slender but pretty ripped.

Preferences:
>Some form of armor
>Not overdone

Thanks!

My dream team cosplay is to get a a group of aesthetic / ripped guys to cosplay characters from JoJo's bizzare adventure alongside me.

>n-no homo...

(JoJo has a wide variety of fabulous and aesthetic muscular individuals)

Off the top of my head I think of Kamina, and the boys from the "Swimming Anime".
Really almost any character with his shirt off for most of the show.

I'd say guys from shojo or reverse harem series like Amnesia or Uta no Prince-sama are pretty popular with the ladies.
Also Sebastian from Black Butler.
Oh and also from shonen series with a large female following, like Kuroko no Basket.

And I think Dante from Devil May Cry?

I generally like seeing guys do characters that females would have a harder time pulling off physically, so shirtless guys, or ones that are more ripped or tall.

Neither are armored, but:

Tuxedo Mask seems to be a pretty big hit.
Jareth the Goblin King from Labyrinth. (dating myself here).

Tuxedo Mask and Kamina are the two I plan on working on for your very same reason.

Funny story, I actually made Kamina a while ago~

The rest are pretty good, but tuxedo mask is pretty common. And not that memorable of a costume. All it takes is a suit and a mask.

Think unique, memorable, costume contest-worthy level.

I actually recently won a national cosplaying contest so trust me there's no limit on how difficult the costume can be.

For slightly older, but endearingly popular, how about Sebastian from Black Butler or Tamaki from OHSHC? Both of them have alternate outfits if you want something different. For something newer, Sinbad from Magi or one of the guys from Amnesia (the anime).

The villain of the movie Summer Wars would be awesome-- shirtless, muscular, and wickedly powerful to boot. There's no traditional armour, but you have some cool weapon work to do, and there's that huge back piece to make as well!

I mean, hey, he's even called "Love Machine". Can't beat that combo!

Characters that girls are after?.... Well...

- Hetalia guys. I rarely see actual males cosplaying these guys, but you see Hetalia cosplayers.... well, crossplayers everywhere. A guy doing one of them would probably make some fangirls happy.
- Ouran guys. Sure, old school by now, but they are pretty much iconic for their good looks among anime guys.
- Roy Mustang. He is a character a lot of people know, and has always had a fangirl march. Ever hear of the Miniskirt Army?
- Various Final Fantasy guys. Think Sephiroth or Cloud maybe.
- Tuxedo Mask. King of the girl catchers. Sure, he is basic, but let's face it, he is practically the only recognizable male in a harem of over a dozen women.


But if you want something more suited for "ripped", I think of characters from Hajime no Ippo, Alex Louis Armstrong, Eikichi Onizuka, and Younger Toguro.

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.

Also! Heathcliff (SP?) from SAO, though not a "lady grabber" it's still a very impressive costume and would get you a lot of love xD

For challenging, sexy, fangirl-loved, and impressive when done right, I second Sephiroth. I can't think of a better guy to fit the bill.

Most guys from Final Fantasy are really hot. ;w; I would LOVE to see Cloud in his Kingdom Hearts 1 outfit; my absolute favorite of his outfits.

Terra in his armor, from KH: BBS.
Sesshoumaru.
Or I always love me some Link, although I guess he's pretty common. xD

My heart throb guy was always Yoko Kurama From Yu Yu Hakusho~ I found those pretty rare, nowadays, but no real armor. Then there's Balmung of the Azure sky from the .hack franchise.. That's alot of armor. XD
