Every year I cosplay as Ryu, this year I want to try something different. I'm Sensei in Shorin Ryu Karate, half asian half white, 5 foot 6 inches tall and a muscular build. Only it's the buffer muscular build, not the slim type most anime characters have. My particular appearance makes it hard to find another character to cosplay as. My friends and I have watched just about every anime available to the U.S. between us, yet no character jumps out saying "yes, that character was made for Derek to play." Like many characters have for them. Any suggestions?
