Exclamation Need help! What is the most COMPLEX female cosplay

okay, this may sound strange, but Iam looking for a VERY complex costume. I want a really awesome costume for my portfolio, but I dont get around the anime block very much.

So, what is a super complex femal costume? Could you post a picture for me?

I would like it to be some thing snug-fitting to show off my figure (fluant it while I've got it! ) and it would be preferable for the character to have long brown hair (but it doesnt HAVE to, I just have a big problem getting thick hip lenght hair in a wig! Although, it can, and has been done!)

So yey! To recap: complex, female, snug/showy, prefered brown hair but any will do!

Thanks for any help!

Maybe Charlotte Elbourne's fancy dress from Vampire Hunter D- Bloodlust. It does have a tight bodice that shows off curves and shoulders. And she DOES have long brown hair.

Lulu is always the obvious choice. I think those reasons are the reason why so many girls made it.

I agree on the Charlotte idea. Even though it's not a "flashy" costume it is lovely and would be a nice costume to advertise your technical skills.

Belldandy ( )? There's enough detail stuff to keep you busy forever.

Look at mangas like Alchino, and just manga in general, the costumes will be much more detailed in manga than in anime generally speaking.

Do you have an image link for that? The only thing I could find was plain white!

I hope my friend does not mind my linking to her pic of it. But she added all the gold. And I am pretty sure the anime did show a white and gold dress.

Do you know any of the character names from that? (I looked, I want to know what some of them are so I can look closer!)

hi!
I'm new here and quite inexperienced when it comes to cosplay- but when I read your post and saw "complex" in it, I had to think of the Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne Artbook.
There are some really nice and rather complex looking dresses/costumes in there.
Maybe it would be worth checking out. Here's a link to a gallery I found-

Hope that helps

Edited because I got the hair wrong...

Ok, well, my definition of complex differes from that of most because my defintion considers complex to be that which can't be done on JUST a sewing machine; ie, you need prop making skills to boot. Thus, my ideas tend more towards the armored cosplay.

Anyway, I'm going to suggest my favorite Galaxy Fraulein, Frau Emilia, which I have never seen cosplayed before.

Not a lot of minutae in that costume, but the integration is going to be a total pain.

Final Fantasy costumes are excellent suggestions. I've been tempted to try a Lulu or FFX-2 character, but the work and detail necessary always scares me off.

CLAMP costumes, particularly those in the artbooks, are also really wonderful and detailed, as well. I saw that Borders is now carrying a few of their books. I'd suggest heading over there and browsing some of them.

In general, artbook cosplay is a lot more detailed and ornate than anything you'll find in anime or manga. There's a lot less reference for any single costume (generally only one picture), but you can make up a lot of detail on your own. This also gives you the chance to cosplay a popular character, but not an overdone costume.

Yukari's blue dress from Paradise Kiss XD Besides that thing,
Sara's dress from Castlevania: Lement of Innocence would be pretty difficult to be made WELL.
KOS-MOS from Xenosaga is often pretty hard...
Rei or Asuka's plugsuit in PVC from NGEva...
Shiva from most any Final Fantasy
Dark Knight, berserker, or mascot dress sphere from FFX-2
Hinoto from X/1999
Princess Garnet from FFIX
Random Chii artbook outfits.
