Choosing my first cosplay character?
Hi there!

I'm hoping to go to Comic Con in Belfast next year in June, and I really want to cosplay for the first time ever! Buuuuut, I have no idea who to cosplay as!

I prefer darker themed animes, such as Pandora Hearts, Gosick and Attack on Titan. And before anyone suggests over-popular animes like Naruto, One-Piece etc, I have never watched them and have no interest in watching them.

I would prefer to watch/read a series (and enjoy it) before I cosplay as a character, rather than not know the series.

Some of the characters I have been thinking of are:
Alice/B-Rabbit (Pandora Hearts)
[b]Mikasa Ackerman (Attack on Titan)
Xerxes Break (Pandora Hearts)
Starfire (Teen Titans - Not anime but I've loved TT for years)
Himari (Omamori Himari)

I am around 5'7-5'8 so I don't think I could pull off short cute characters (even though I love them *sadface*) and I am...quite full in the chest (34DD-E), but am relatively slimish everywhere else.
I wouldn't mind playing a busty character (since it'd be easy for me) but I don't mind playing a guy or having to strap my chest down for a smaller chested woman/girl character.

Does anyone have any anime/character suggestions for me? Any costume making sites/tips would be awesome too

P.S. Is anyone else on here going to Belfast Comic Con?

Thanks :3

Alice would be very cute! Mikasa is also a good choice since that anime is incredibly popular, so it will be easy to get involved with cosplay groups, which I think is great for a newbie.

Thanks you guys!
Thanks for your replies!

My body type would probably be good for the original comic book Starfire, but I'd be afraid to go out with that little clothing on XD especially for my first cosplay! So TV Starfire is a definite option!

I like the idea of making a weapon, which is why Alice or Mikasa would be a good idea, and I could probably be either of them. Older Ada from Pandora Hearts might also be an option because she is quite tall.

I don't really have a group of friends who cosplay which sucks...so I don't know who to go with XD I'll have to try and find some people to talk to who are going to any Ireland/Northern Ireland cosplay events.

Thanks for your opinions! I just need to think which one I could act like at a con. I might even make a second cosplay because there are a few that I want to go to next year!

Just pick a character that you feel confident playing and whose costume you feel comfortable wear. If you don't want to put that much skin on show, adapt the costume to search for alternative costumes as most characters have been revamped at some point. And play to your strengths.

I think that you should pick the person that you have wanted to be for the longest time, who you would feel the most comfortable and confident as and who you think that you will enjoy being the most!

I think a Break cosplay could look awesome, and so could Alice! But I hope you enjoy cosplaying as whoever you choose!

And now the weather...
