The "Who should I Cosplay?" thread
Post By Guest. 09/12/08, 06:02 am

Many people like hearing specific ideas from their peers when stumped. Hence, the "Who do I look like?" thread was made~! (also cuts down on some repeat threads as well, and any one can jump in! whee)

Few things to keep in mind whilst posting:
  • be courteous, no jumping up and down when people suggest things you are vehemently opposed to. (And no purposely provoking us, Kitten! >w<)
  • the best ideas are what you come up with yourself since you're going to put so much work into this costume.
  • it's good to add what you're looking for - do you want to not wear a wig? Do you want a character similar to your own height, what kinda colour scheme are you after, are you open to crossplaying, do you want to use this particular fabric you have lying around - etcetera. nodnod
Good luck!

........stupid Jen. Forcing me to use your thread.

Fine, then.

OI OI OI! MORTALS.

Who should I cosplay as on the sunday of armageddon?

I am: 13 years old, 165cm tall. A GUY DAMNIT. An awesome one at that.
I have: Brown hair, blue eyes. I don't mind getting contacts or a wig.
I want it to be: relatively easy. No army of super crazy funky OMG stuff. I'd like it to be only basic sewing as I don't have much skill. I'm okay with super basic too. (ie. tshirt, jeans, shoes, wig.)

Easy badguy costumes:

Emperor Papaltine (Starwars) - big robe, pull it down far enough you don't need make-up.

Valentine Bro's (Hellsing) - ok so one isn't so stand-offish but getting a white suit is relatively easy from the Sallies

Comic book badguy list (Western) - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_comic_book_supervillain_debuts

Brain on strike, refuses to produce more.

BB~! do Yuffie
woohoo
The Kingdom hearts version of her is pretty simple.. then again looking at her original ffvii outfit theres not much difference in difficulty either.

And Viking_queen... what about Namine from Kingdom hearts, she has blonde hair and a really simple white dress...
or Julia from Cowboy Bebop

I need help! I need suggestions for me and a friend cause we only have a faint idea about who to cosplay as!

We're both 12
She's got a fringe with very long black hair
I have medium length hair sorta blackish-brown
We both have brown eyes
I'm average 12 yr old height while she is... short( no offense!)
umm... it's a bit hard for us to get a wig but it is possible ^^

I'm considering Chrome from KHR, Haruhi from TMOHS( can't type such a long title ><) and Allen from D. Gray-man ( it was her idea!)

Any other suggestions?

I'm wondering who to go as to the cosplay ball. I don't want a wig but I can dye my hair. Don't really want to be all pink or much pink if any. And I would like to be a girl. Not too worried about height. Oh and my eye colour is a green I guess.
here is a link to a photo of me on photobucket but it's a few months old so my hair has more re-growth. Oh and my fringe is more even now XD

Ooh, do me do me!

I'm... about 170cm, brown hair and hazel eyes. Oh, and a girl, but I don't mind binding and such for crossplay. I'm opposed to wearing contacts, but wigs are fiiine. Uh, something simple-ish for a Saturday cosplay, I'm already making a horrifically difficult one. But I really like making props so... a character with some kind of prop would be cool.

Yeah 8D

This will be interesting, I'm 173cm, female (will crossplay), not objecting to buying a wig, contacts or props, I am an average sewer but can make anything as long as I set my mind to it (yep, I cannot explain myself so I will let a photo do the talking, sorry, it's a modeling pic but i couldn't be bother uploading more to photobucket)

@personified_insanity: you can be any character really ... well other than maybe loli/children characters though i do think you could possibly pull them off after all its all about angling and makeup 83

yes i know this doesnt help but what anime ahve you watched? and what kind of characters (personality wise or looks wise) do you like?

Personality wise I like anything, wow, I'm so useless at explaining stuff (and this will provide no further insight to me unfortunately) so let me try and give more information but fail, I enjoy being Misa (Hyper happy and such) and Haruhi S (Bossy) and I know I will enjoy the chance to be quiet as Yin so that's no help at all and I have seen too much anime to list, but chances are if it is reasonably well known of I have heard of if not seen it. I just realized that this post explains less than i first thought.
