Anime Costumes for People with Mustaches?!

What kind of cosplay looks right with peole with mustaches?

I'm looking for costumes that I could do with my boyfriend, but it kinda sucks because I'm afraid because he's got a mustache and sometimes kind of a fuzzy beard, he wouldnt look right as any of the bishonen characters that are in the series I cosplay from!

He really wants to do couple cosplay, or just cosplay duos, but I cant seem to find anyone with dark facial hair in anime that isnt just some uber perv!

Help me out! Please! ^^ I know there's gotta be another alternative than just shaving his 'stache off. ^^

The only characters I can think of are like ...people from Dynasty Warriors.

Here is an old piccy of him : http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=136544 He has longer hair now, but I wonder...

So I assume he really isn't willing to shave it off for a weekend and grow it back later.. Haha. Lemme think.

One guy that came to mind is the pirate Fargo from Chrono Cross. He's an older character, but he still has black dark hair and he isn't some perverted evil dude. :P If you were Marcy or something it'd be a cute duet. There's lots of characters in Chrono Cross to choose from, though.

Bleh I don't really have time to think of more. x_x; I'll try later.

The only major characters I know of as having JUST a mustache are Capt. Gloval from Macross, and Capt. Nemo from Nadia: Secret of Blue Water, and they were essentially copies of each other.

However, I have a creative solution.

I recommend you go as Naoko and Batanen from Hyperpolice (Photos below). Technically yes, Batanen didn't have a mustache, but he was a werewolf semi-furry, so it wouldn't be totally out of character.

Besides... no one cosplays hyperpolice these days....

Oh yeah! We were actually going to be Irenes and Fargo together...thats one of the only cosplays that we were gonna be. But my love does have a fuzzy beard like thing...if he has to.

I'm thinking Mitsurugi from Soul Calibur?

Celebrimbor: Yeah, he likes Macross, as well...so maybe that would be a good idea~

Assuming you mean Natsuki, YES! I would LOVE to see a Batanen-sempai cosplay!

Um, sorry I can't think of anyone with a mustache, though. >.< They're kinda rare, espeically for more well known characters.

King BRADLEY!!! You know, from Fullmetal Alchemist
Or... King STEVE!!! From 8-bit-theatre/FF1
Then again, if he enjoys ripping his shirt off... he could be a brunet Armstrong...

(Shrug) kyandi-chan has Naoko's hair and build. Although, Natsuki is Batanen's understudy.

Ah. My mistake. I didn't get to see all of the series, unfortunately... and the link didn't work, so I don't remember which is Naoko... *learns something new every day*

I always thought Batanen-sempai and Natsuki were a cute couple.

*wanders off to tell bf to buy her HyperPolice for a late Christmas present*

I wouldn't worry about it too much... my boyfriend has the goatee thing happening (which ISN'T coming off for a costume) so instead of being limited to characters with facial hair, he picks characters that have personalities and costumes that can accommidate it without looking too off the wall - so yeah, this does elimate most of the traditional "pretty boys" but you'd be surprised at what can work.

Mitsurugi would work, definitely.

oh wow! I had seen a picture of Natsuki and thought of cosplaying her, since I love catgirls, but the pairing of her and Batanen would be so nice! I think my boyfriend would love these costumes! We love wolves and kitties! ^^ Thanks so much for these suggestions!

If you can't seem to find a character with a mustache, you can always "cover it up". There are plenty of ninja characters that have their mouths and part of the nose covered.
You could do Tenchu, Ninja Gaiden, Naruto, etc.
Or you can always cosplay Resident Evil and stick him with the zombie costume (heh just a thought)

Mihawk from One Piece? I don't think he should be limited if he has a goatee I mean my brother DC has that problem but he really doesn't mind it too much. He cosplays whoever he wants and I think you can get your bf to do that too I mean especially since there really aren't too many people that I can think of that have goatees and all.

Try Goa from Escaflone, and then you could go as Varie. Though you might have to add some 'stache prostetics or something since Goa's is really odd! (Think professor Fate from the Great Race, except fuller.)
