Suggestions needed
I've only recently got into cosplay and the like but me and a friend are seriously thinking of attending one. Only problem is that we (me in particuar) don't know who to go as.
Im a bit of a shorty (not very short but I feel it)
blonde (and trying to avoid wigs)
and female (not that I'm very fussed)

If anyone would throw suggestions this way I will love you forever!

Okay well most importantly, what anime/games are your faves? It's always best to cosplay as characters that you actually know and like because you'll be much more enthusiastic.

(Also it'll be easier for people to suggest ideas. XD)

Hmm... well there are a few blond/e characters I can think of...
Polka, from Eternal Sonata.
Zidane, Final Fantasy IX
Quatre, Gundam Wing
Sailor Moon, Sailor Moon
Sailor Venus, Sailor Moon
Sailor Uranus, Sailor Moon

These are just off the top of my head, but seriously, the best thing to do is to go as someone you genuinely like in an anime/game/manga. Don't just go as someone cause you think you would suit them. I don't think you have as much fun when you do that.

Well, Im not very big on anime/mange yet. My mate however is so thats not so much of a problem. We want to go as a pair though.
I only really know about KH1/2, the later FF's and FMA. I know a few other bits and bobs but nothing important.
Off hand I know my friend reads Fruits basket, Death note, Loveless and a few others.

do you have a pic of yourself?

some people are the spitting image of characters they never knew existed..

otherwise i agree with MoonLily, going with something you know is usually more fun because you'll know their personality and its easier to spot other characters from the same series/game

If you're short and blonde and an FMA fan...do I have to spell it out? There can never be too many Ed cosplayers. XD

But if you like KH...you could always go as Namine, there's always KH cosplayers at cons and hers is a nice easy costume to get you started. FF wise there's always lots of blonde females... Rikku (ffx) is a good one because it's a funky costume but not too difficult.

I'll get back to you if I can think of anyone else!

Ed/Al would be a good idea but thats a long hair problem. I guess I could get extensions though. I shall have a look for a semi decent photo of me.
P.S I will dye my hair, I just thought it would be easier not to.

News Flash. Possibility of a third person so if anyone can think of trios aswell it would be much loved.

As you can probably tell I'm bad at getting ideas...

If you don't mind skimpy, Yuna, Paine and Rikku come to mind from FFX-2.

21 Feb 2008 - 20:361718
Skimpy is out of the question for my friend (I dont mind) and its impossible to find any piccies at all of us!

I think to be honest we're gonna need any ideas that will suit as a pair for a short blonde and a tall brunette. (both shortish hair) Neither of us mind hair dye but no wigs. (My hair doesnt dye very well, I tried to make it red and it went orange and wouldnt wash out like it said it would!). We dont mind being guys...
Thrid person is also short and blonde, not minding about dye...
Thankies for all the help so far. It has been useful, we're just trying to get as many ideas as posisble.

Although Silver already said FFx-2 YuRiPa, you don't really have to do their default outfits. As all 3 have a huuuge choice of outfits, some non skimpy at all ^_^
I recommend looking on this site, it has pictures of all three girls in their different dress spheres =D


Group cosplay, how about Uo, Hana and Tohru from Fruits basket? That could work. Their school uniform is pretty basic. I'll let you know if i think of any more.

Not sure about trios, but what about Alice from Pumpkin Scissors? It's an amzing series that doesn't seem to have attracted much attention, certainly from cosplayers. See image in link for military uniform. She wears a couple of ball gowns in the series if that's more your thing.

Im new too, if i post my face can anyone tell me if i look like anyone? i have a few ideas on what to do like Midna, Samus, a dark elf. I think maybe with it being my first project it may be easier if i actually have a little boost by resembling someone, maybe...
All these noobs must drive some y'all


24 Feb 2008 - 13:121750
Nah, we like noobs

Post away and we'll see what we can do.

You stole into my thread! Grr...
I dont mind really I done with this. We have finally worked out what to do. As long as parents agree to us going me and two friends are going as Sora, Riku and Roxas. Mostly because this is how we first met and still know each other. As soon as we get the go ahead from the parents I'll be back asking for tips on costumes.
Thankies for all the help anyway!!
