Urgent Help needed
I've desperately been trying to decide what to cosplay as for several months now, and ALcon is looming. It will be both my first con and my first cosplay.

I'm 5'7, with short blonde hair and curves. I considered Mikan from Air Gear,and also a claymore (but a. v difficult and b. my friend who's a blacksmith refused to make me armour for free!). I've been racking my brains to try to think of something.

Please could anyone suggest anything?

well a good place to start is to look into which anime you like. maybe try watching something new from the genre incase you find someonenew. also, would you consider cross dressing as there a probably quite a few male characters. are you going with friends? ever considered going as group?

short blond hair..... well there's Momiji from Fruits Basket or Kisa from fruits basket. Sailor Uranus? Roxas from Kingdom Hearts?

you don't need to have actual armour.you can improvise with craft foam or something like that.
as it's your first cosplay i'd suggest something simple though.....


sorry if that advice was a bit muddles up. ^^ hope i helped a little though. ^_^V

Yaay a Claymore! I have yet to see one in real life~

If you don't want to go as a normal Claymore then why not try Clare's disguise costume, involves no armour. I can't remember which episode exactly but it was one of the early episodes when she disguises herself as human. I think it was a black turtleneck top/shorts combination with a purple cape. Involves no armour so it should be pretty easy ^_^ I tried finding reference pictures for you but could only find a head shot xD;

Here's someone who's done the cosplay before:

But otherwise like what Hexi said your best bet is to say what your into so that we can give better suggestions ^_^ I personally find it no fun cosplaying as someone I don't know or have a particular interest in =S [I would give rare exceptions if the costume's elaborate though... hasn't happened yet though]

Some suggestions based on looks would be:
Tamaki [Ouran High School Host Club]
Honey [Ouran]
Fai D. Flourite [Tsubasa RESERvoir Chronicles]
+ a load more crossplays, my brains aren't working and are only thinking of guy characters for some reason D= Maybe it's because I just recently posted a crossplay up...
EDIT: I THOUGHT OF A FEMALE!
Pudding [Tokyo Mew Mew]

Thanks CrystalNeko and Hexi. I've been through all the series I like and not found anyone suitable. The problem with cross dressing is my figure. You dont find many men in anime with E cup boobs.

Thanks Crystal I had forgotten that Claire ever changed out of her armour, I'll look into that

Claymore
Claire's disguise (I remember now, It's from when she first enters the holy city) would definately be possible, thanks a lot.

Any other suggestions welcome though,

Thanks everyone

could you not like use some padding like a pillow or something over your stomach to even it out a bit and crossplay a fat character? XD there are a few around

failing that, there's orihime from bleach
