@Koemix- Are you up for wearing wigs/dying/changing your hair colour? Any character/series/type preferences?

@Bloo- BE MY SUIGINTOU FOR ACP.
... Ahem.
Uh... uh.. no loli-ish characters really pop to mind for me 8l A Pokemon/some other series gijinka is always a good fallback plan? Plus I guess you're looking for a more comfy/light cosplay for ACP since it's outside all day?

Hnnngh... So I have this wig but my original plan for it fell through. Any suggestions for other characters I could use it for would be great, please and thanks~ >w<''

Photo in spoilers~

Please keep in mind I'm not particularly skilled in sewing so far (main reason I dropped my original plan) but I wouldn't mind any suggestion (might take note of more difficult/detailed characters for the future)... given they're not skimpy. -uncomfortable- >.>''

My little brother is wanting to come to ACP with me, and he doesn't have a cosplay yet.
He would have had one by now, but he's refusing to wear a wig, so i had to scrap the idea i had.
Has anyone got any ideas as to who he could cosplay as, or is he ok coming without a cosplay?
He's 12 years old, skinny, kind of short, has longish brown hair and medium blue eyes.
And help is appreciated!
Worst comes to worst, he can be random background person #327, haha.

here's a pic: http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif

ggggg okay because I don't have enough to deal with and because I don't have anything set to cosplay for Auckgeddon.

Pick something for me!

I'm female, kinda, um, chubby. :c Loose cosplays plz. Uh, I'm tall-ish for my age, I guess (14) and I have darkish blonde hair to the middle of my back. It naturally waves a bit but I can straighten it. I'd prefer not to wear a wig because THAT MEANS MORE MONEY MUST BE SPENT but if the need arises I'll do it. I also already have a short silver wig, so I could use that.
I have till Geddon to learn to sew but I'd much prefer if it's something I can buy off some site. [/lazy k]

If you need any more information, just tell me, alright?

Hey guys, Me and Pyro want to cosplay together but have an obvious height difference. She's 178cm, and I'm 156cm.

Pyro wants a cosplay with a wig, no short skirts, but open for anything that doesn't look like normal clothes.

I'm open for anything in general. Must have a wig though.

Thanks in advance!

I wanna start work on a new costume... Hrrm...

I'm a flat-chested, too-skinny, short (152cm) girl who only cosplays boys.
I have short brown hair. I can dye it, but I can't dye it crazy colours during school time. Blue eyes.
I tend to get called cute a lot
I can't do anything that would potentially require a lot of sewing because I have no machine (unless anyone lets me come over and use theirs!) I only do small things by hand and add to pre-existing garments.

Oh and I'm skint most of the time T_T

I am 179cm tall, pretty skinny, blonde hair down to the middle of my back and blue eyes.

I'm open to wearing contacts *if* the character wears glasses, because I have to wear either prescription contacts or glasses myself.

I'll wear a wig if I *have* to, but I'd prefer not to. I'm not up for dying my hair at all but I'm open to any series; manga or anime. I'd prefer to cosplay a girl and nothing scandalously revealing but I'm alright with showing a little bit of skin.

Thanks in advance! ;D

Does it have to be anime/manga? Do you have any series you like? What type of series do you like? Action/comedy? And do you want to dress up, or to act out the character as well?

it can be from anime, manga, comic books or good movies, i really dont mind.

i really love ouran high school host club, princess ai and sailor moon. but i'm open to any suggestions. i like the girly stuff (like romance/empowered female/damsel in distress type deals).

i'm only looking to cosplay, no skits or acting, i suck at that type of thing xD



EDIT:


Quote :
empowered female/damsel in distress

yes, they are rather contradictory, but i'm happy to read either. xD

Luchine - the first thing that popped into my head was Minako/Sailor Venus/Sailor V. No wig needed if you have blonde hair...

So you could chose someone from those series, like Sakura Petals suggestions. Or you just described so many anime females it's not funny.

I also see you want to do Skuld. Fleyer has a good Beldandy. You just need a Keiichi Morisato and Urd for a group.

You could ask people for a pirates of the Caribbean group. Or even a group of pirates from different series. I am planning try to get the Dread Pirate Roberts together. Speaking of which I could do with a Princess Buttercup. In fact lets have so many pirates at geddon that the ninjas don't stand a chance.

PS, when do you want to cosplay these?

I'm 16 years old, around 150cm tall, I prefer to cosplay teens to adults.
I have med brown hair kind of bob above shoulders with fringe, brown eyes but I don't mind contacts. Don't really like school uniforms but other kind of uniforms are fine^^ I don't mind revealing middriffs and would prefer Anime or Manga and female please! Very Happy

Um, I'm gonna say Full Metal Panic or One Piece, purely cause those are groups I want to do. (O.K.) I have done one one piece group before.)

Full Metal Panic is a lot of school outfits for the many of females, but not all the time. However Sgt Major Melissa Mau is a kick ass solider, easy uniform to make (I'm working on the details now for the Mithral OR ordinary uniform). You would suit Captain Tessarosa as you are a similar age and height, just add a wig.

http://myanimelist.net/character/273/Teletha_Testarossa

One piece. Nami or Nico (Ms. Sunday)? It is a long series so there are so many costumes to chose from.


http://images1.fanpop.com/images/photos/2400000/One-Piece-one-piece-2484341-1024-768.jpg

Nami on the right, Ms Sunday on the left.

Or you could do a female trainer from pokemon, or a girl from digimon. Always favorites, and easy to make.
Other than that just do a character you like.

Uh, I'm looking to cosplay for Auckgeddon .w. I'm new to cosplaying so I'd prefer if it weren't too complex in terms of sewing? D; Buying a costume isn't really an option for me ><

I'm approximately 156cm, apparently I'm 'petite' o_o I don't really mind whether or not my cosplay is height-accurate tbh @_@
My eyes are dark brown, not keen to wear contacts :v
I have black hair, about chest-length. I'd rather not get it dyed/bleached >_> Been told I have anime-esque hair if that contributes to anything o_O; I'm purrdy poor and not open to buying stuff online so I guess I'll have to opt out in getting a wig ><

I don't mind crossplaying :V

And I don't mind if it's from an animu/manga/game, as long as it's not from a hentai or something o_o; nor a yuri rofl or stuff along those lines. Also I'd rather not it be a schoolgirl uniform or nurse outfit for various reasons >_>;

So far I've looked up simple ones and found characters like Rin Tohsaka from Fate/Stay Night, but I'm wondering if that's too simple? I've found a lot of easy/simple costumes, but I'm wondering whether or not people will be able to tell that I'm cosplaying and not just dressing normally o_o;

OTL hope I didn't write too much~ ^^

@Dysphorique-- If you have a fringe, then you could cosplay Yukiko Amagi from Persona 4. She wears parts of a (reasonably modest!) schoolgirl uniform, but it's customized and worn with a red cardigan-- here's a link to a pic of her. http://images.wikia.com/megamitensei/images/c/c9/YukikoP4.jpg

If you don't mind something a little exposing, there's Wrath from the old FMA anime, who has a fairly distinctive but very easy outfit-- just... you'd have to be cool with showing your stomach. http://quizilla.teennick.com/user_images/E/EN/ENV/ENVY21/1219457566_4016_full.jpeg

And if you want something very recognisable but maybe a little higher up on the difficulty scale than my other suggestions, there's always (the iconic!) Tifa from FFVII. She has a bunch of outfits, and here's one of them. http://images.wikia.com/finalfantasy/images/1/14/Kh2-tifa_render.jpg

You have left it so open that you could just decide on some series/games/movies/tv/books/band you like and look at what female character fits. (Given the hair length more likely female anyway.) Whether you want a more recognizable costume is up to you. Also check the auckgeddon group threads. Whether you want to do one that allows you to be part of a group, or one that means something to you, or is just pretty is up to you.

Or you could do a female trainer from pokemon, or a girl from digimon, or a pokemon or Digimon. Always favorites, and easy to make. You can do anything really.

^She said she's not going to buy a wig for it so Testarossa isn't really an option.

But, thinking of those old-school anime like Pokemon... Dysphorique, you could probably do Mei Lin from Cardcaptors? =D
