    Default Who should I cosplay as?

    I've always wanted to do a cosplay, y'know? Go all out. But, I can never decide on a character to emulate (impromptu skit acting, photos, the whole nine yards). Part of this is because I'm really picky (see below >_>) and part of this is because I am just really bad at picking out characters I would 'do well' - so to speak. Also, I'm a perfectionist and want to do everything as best I can (or as best as physically possible lmao)

    So, this is me, calling out to you: Please give me suggestions! Any genre, any medium (anime/manga/game/LN/etc.), any vintage! I'm willing to do the requisite research to do a 'good <insert character name here>'!

    I don't want to dye my hair, and I don't really like the way wigs look (because I can't buy the 'made with real hair' versions that look really on fleek, and I'm not really about cutting corners in places that are super visible... like hair) ... so I would need to pick someone with red/copper hair. Also I have blue eyes. While fantastic, i also wear contacts, so color change lenses aren't really an option either XD I don't need to tell you, red hair and blue eyes is pretty uncommon.

    OR I'd be willing to pick a character who kindof actually looks like me (face shape and the like) and just get a wig to match their hair color if it doesn't match.

    I'm a bit curvy, so if its a dude i'll probably have to do a genderbent version XD but apparently those are quite 'in' nowadays ^_~* (Even though I would totally be willing to cosplay as a dude)

    Here's my face for reference ^_~*

    I should also note here that I am a moderately capable seamstress (kindof, I'm still learning!), a moderately capable craft-er, and I know how to properly wear a lot of different kinds of clothing (traditional Japanese included). So, don't let wardrobe worries hold you back from suggesting something! ^_~--♥*

    Honestly I think that's a very hard question to answer. To me, the more important thing is what character do you connect with, as the best cosplays tend to be ones that speak to you in some fashion, more than characters who you kinda look like. Do you have some characters you're considering? That could be an easier start to such a question!

    Holo the Wise Wolf from Spice and Wolf.



    As you can see, the costume will be easy.

    That is a very good point. As for characters I've (kinda) considered... Sesshoumaru, Kurama (of YYH), Tenko Kuugen (of Wagaya no Oinari-sama), Iki Hiyori (of NoraGami), Momozono Nanami (of Kamisama Hajimemashita) - these are just a few, though. Maybe also Sheryl Nome (because I love singing and her songs are in my register ♥_♥ also i really connected with her story)

    You're a cutie!! I suggest cosplaying any character you like! I usually choose characters I can relate to in some way, but sometimes I'll choose a character simply because I love an anime so much, and cosplay is a way of expressing that! Are there any characters or anime you really LOVE??

    I'm trying to figure out who you look like, which may be a clue. I do see a bit of Winry Rockbell in you, from Full Metal Alchemist. But you would have to go with two guys cosplaying Ed and Al. Got a spare suit of armor lying around?

    Jasanime, you're so nice thanks for the compliment and the great advice!! I like a ton of anime, but the thing I keep coming back to for 'something I just love' is FF7 (especially their Turks), so I'll probably make my first cosplay be Cissnei or Reno. If I had the coat I would totally go as Genesis (because, hot damn). I have so many feelsabout Genesis.

    Ah, Winry, I considered her once a while back but never did anything about it. I don't have many cosplay friends, but there are meetups now that kindof make up for that.


    Stay tuned for cosplay updates, then I guess? XD

    Well, if you want to go old school, there's always Ranma Saotome or Lina Inverse.

    If something more recent, why not Zombina from Monster Musume. You could always search red haired anime girl characters. Or if it doesn't have to be a girl, there's always Grell (Black Butler)
