I'm a guy who has never cosplayed before, and I was thinking of cosplaying as Suu from Monster Musume
for London Comic Con. As this is my first time, I'd really appreciate some advice on how to go about this.
I have a rough plan for items to buy for the cosplay:
- Long raincoat
- Yellow shorts if the raincoat is not long enough. Otherwise regular shorts
- Rain boots
- Blue body paint
- Green wig
- Yellow dye for the tips of the wig
I have no idea how to go about the tube thing on the top of Suu's head. I'm happy to leave this out, as well as other details if they're too much of a hassle. I'm on a low-ish budget so it this may be necessary if it costs too much.
I don't plan on going on an all-out feminine look, this is more of a rule 63 crossplay.
In case body type is important, I'm fairly pale, chunky, kinda hairy (not too much chest hair) and 6'1" with a beard, so this cosplay will probably turn out to be a bit ridiculous - I'm looking forward to it!
Any suggestions are welcome! Thanks for reading
