Idea for a Duo Cosplay

Well, I finally bagged me a boyfriend who goes to cons and doesn't mind cosplaying! However, I can't seem to come up with two characters similar to us we can cosplay as a duo for. I was wondering if anyone could help me out with some ideas.

Basically here's what we look like:

He's 6'2" and has a strong build

I'm 5'2" (yeah, a whole FOOT shorter) and a small build



The characters I've cosplayed that I've resembled the most were Chii and Rikku (I'm small and blonde). He...hmm... I dunno. Most of the male characters I can think of are tall but kinda scrawny. He has very broad shoulders and a strong build (think somewhere along the lines of Auron from FFX, where he's tall but he's not skinny). So I dunno, it's really hard for me to think of anything. Anyone have any ideas?

Would you be against a Mamoru and Usagi or Tuxedo Kamen and Sailor Moon couple? You have the heights for it. Rikku and Auron, your own example, would be great. Maybe he can be Hideki to your Chii? Hideki isn't that scrawny that it'd look bad if he was built. ^^

A lot of anime guys are lanky, but some of them wouldn't look bad if they were done by guys that weren't exactly sticks. Something like Touga and Utena from Shoujo Kakumei Utena would probably work, for example, or even Akio with Utena... or since you're blonde, Touga and Nanami. ^_^;

CLAMP guys are good for tall guys. They're usually lanky looking, but have broad shoulders. Like the Utena guys. For CLAMP couples, well... Hikaru in Rayearth is known for being short, and she gets paired up with both Eagle and Lantis in the second series. They're both much taller than her. There's also Emeraude and Zagato in the first series, which is perfect since Emeraude is a tiny blonde. ^^; Primera and Lantis would work too if you wanna be a fairy. XD Primera is only a few inches tall so being really short is good.

Arrrgh I'm blanking out for now. Maybe more later. ^^;

Oooh interesting suggestions.


I guess my main concern is my bf. I'm short and slender so I'm pretty much 1/2 of the female anime characters out there lol. But he's so tall and so... not skinny lol. Come to think about it Rikku and Auron is not that bad, however I do want to try something different for myself as well.

My boyfriend and I were thinking of Integra and Alucard from Hellsing. The coat could be a good choice for your boyfriend if he's not too skinny. Or maybe a good old fashioned Kagome and Inuyasha... those clothes are baggy as well. Of course, if he doesn't like squating he might not like Inu. xD Oh and Miyu and Larva is a good choice as well. Anyway good luck, couples are fun!

I'm going to agree with the clamp couples because the men are usually tall and the girls are typically short. You could go as Sorata and Arashee, Useriya and Mr.Kusenagi, Kanoe and Yuuto, Kamui and Kotor(X), Hideki and Chii(Chobits), Esmeralde and Lagato, Eagle and Hikaru, Umi and Asscot(Rayearth). Or you guys could go as Tamahome and Miaka, Hotohori and Miaka, Hotohori and Hoki, ohohoh or Nakago and Yui, Nakago and Soy(Fushigi Yugi). There is also Samanosuke and Ms. Megumi, or Aoshi and Ms. Misao(Kenshin). You can also go as Orphen and Cleo(Orphen). Well here are some ideas I hope you enjoy them, and I hope they help.

You know, it might be cool to see somebody do Rikku and Auron as a couple. I've seen a lot of people who support that pairing. It could be really cute ^_^
