I was wondering how to tell what anime character would fit me best? what are some ways to pick out an anime that may look similar to you?

Final progress pictures of my commissioned Ciel costume have gone up (from it being 100% complete) and..wow, despite being one of his more simple outfits (and looking kind of weird on an average-sized dressform since I'm not), it's really lovely *.* Hurry up and gimme my costume, mailwoman! T^T
On that note, I also got my Sebastian plushie in and re-restyled Grell's wig (I had to move my wigs around a lot as one long wig took priority over another long wig and stole one of the two wig heads I have- he got a bit smushed in the process) so he is incredibly close to being finished. The wait for this costume so far has been a very painful one >.<;
Also, vouches on my Grell things:
Makeup: "Wow...O.o" -Dad "That's not too bad!" -Mom.
Plushie: "What." -Mom "Okaaay." -Dad "Aww, it's cute! It even looks a little like you!" -Grandmother
...Oh dear god my family never ceases to confuse me.

I personally don't pick characters by whether they look like me or not, and don't advise others to..I think that choosing a character you really like will work much better, you'll have more fun and even if you don't look much like them at first, makeup and practicing expressions can do wonders. But, since you asked:
Really, all I do is, if I see a character I'm interested in, look up some of their different expressions and mimic them to myself in the mirror. Even if it feels silly, that's one of the best ways to tell if you can really 'look like' a character without too much extra effort. Though, as I said, makeup does wonders. Look up tutorials for a character and see if you like the results, then follow it as you feel necessary to look like your character. You'd be surprised at what you could look like!
But I can't say I really have any tips for picking a character strictly from the fact that they look similar to yourself without being interested in the series first, as I've never really gone through that. Just with picking a character from a series I already know fairly well.

If you want suggestions go here: http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=57030 but it would help them a lot if you had a picture for them to see.

I usually go for the characters personality that I can relate to but if I look at looks I see what the character and I share

I HAVE SO MANY COSPLAYS I WANT TO MAKE but NO money for any of them. Le sigh~

BUT I do have a super fun Sunday ahead including a photoshoot for me and my friend's Homestuck cosplays (I have to try and fix Terezi's glasses ugh D8 ) and the main local anime convention in my area is having a cosplay BBQ that my friend and I are going as Panty and Stocking to.

So there's that. SQUEE 8D

I think unless you live around New York City or in a highly populated city in California, it's kind of hard to find large amounts of cosplayers. Both of those areas seem to have a huge diversity of people and a lot of fantastic conventions.

So...the producer of the Green Lantern cartoon series said this about my prom!Aya cosplay: "This makes me happier than you know". Guys, I'm about to start sobbing because a) "senpai noticed me!!!111!", and b) I feel like every frustration and pain I endured while making that dress is completely worthwhile to have gotten that feedback. Can I just hug that man and be done with it? -continues to sit in a state of shock and wonder and debating whether or not to cry because I'm so freaking happy-

And just like that...I almost have a complete cosplay done. I went to Burlington/thrifting today and I ended with EVERYTHING for fem. Gilgamesh. Sure, I need to alter the skirt so it fits and make it shorter and I need to color the bracelets all to a single gold color and turn three of the bracelets I got into a necklace. Also need to get a wig too. But other than that, I have fem. Gilgamesh!

With about a week before a convention....instead of being overjoyed and excited, I'm frustrated and not looking forward to anything at all.

I'm supposed to be doing panels...I should be happy. Instead I'm sitting here fuming because I'm sure I won't be good enough for either of them no matter what I do.

I finally get home to where I could work on finishing a cosplay and finalizing a test run for another and....nope...no energy. I'm exhausted.

This is just beyond frustrating and I feel like I'm running out of time.

Slowly updating my galleries here. Sifting through three convention albums that took place over the course of two weeks. I think I got ONE decent photo of Hiccup.

... time for a photoshoot in the mountains, methinks.

The cosplay gods hate me this week. My wig for Katara isn't going to work. It's too light and can't be pulled back into her hairstyle. I need to get a new one by July 3rd. My lolita wig was supposed to be here two days ago and it's MIA.

I need to buy black flats, white flats, white stockings, finish Katara's water prop, remake Kaname's fan and figure out what I'm wearing for the formal ball.

I have two weeks until my convention and nothing is going as planned!

Oh, I'm also flat broke until the 28th. D; Anime Midwest is the week after. D;

-Hits the panic button;

Friend just told me that Rise's skirt is about 13 inches long and asked if I wanted to make it longer just in case I may not feel comfortable wearing it. My response?

"I have no problem with it and I just gotta make sure not to bend down LAWL."
