Cosplay suggestions required
I need suggestions for an iconic female charecter, from anime or game, to cosplay. I'm looking for somethinging that most people would recognise, even out of context. Something like Sailor Moon, Evangelion girls etc. It needs to be something I can pull off, and while I'd prefer something skimpy, but being recognisable is more important.

Any ideas?

How about a character like Cammy from Street Fighter? Faye from Cowboy Bebop is very recognisable... Dirty Pair... Ranma... Lum from Urusei Yatsura...

You'd probably be best off going for something "classic" rather than something newer... the kind of anime or game most people will have watched/played when they were first getting into the fandom.

Well Aerith and Tifa are well known characters.

Everyone knows Excel and Hyatt from Excel Saga and how can everyone not know who Sakura and Ino are from Naruto, hey Tsunade is better to cosplay as^_^

If you post a picture up of yourself then we can all see who you look like most then we'll get better ideas for you^_^

For piccies of me, see http://www.cosplayisland.com/costume/list/ailsa-chan/complete

You're right about the classic anime / games being a better idea. I'd forgotten about Lum and things like that.

You could try something like Winry Rockbell from FMA, Rukia from Bleach, any of the Puella Magi girls (either magical girl or casual), Maka from Soul Eater, Faye Valentine from Cowboy Bebop, Victoria Seras from Hellsing, one of the girls from the Final Fantasy series, Sakura from Card Captor Sakura/ Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle, Blue Rose from Tiger and Bunny (casual) or school uniform Asuka or Rei and I suspect Misato would be very recognisable too.

Who is your audience? Anime fans or the general public? Either way you're probably better picking from something known to the general non-anime-watching public like Pokemon or Sailor Moon, rather than the fan favourites.

It might also help if we know your aim here. Are you just wanting to be recognised? Or are you trying to represent the fandom at a general media event? Or something else?

Because we don't all watch Naruto? (I know who Sakura is because of the fangirl hate-machine, but I had to google the other two!)

So, like, iconic skimpy characters?

Tifa from FF, Misty from Pokemon, Ino from Naruto, Hinata from Naruto: RtN, Nami fron One Piece, Black Rock Shooter... There's that Yuko person... If you're into Vocaloid then there are many possibilities... You should go on a google spree.

Misty from Pokemon is pretty hugely recognisable and I'd say fairly skimpy too. Pretty much everyone knows Pokemon so I'd say that's the one option that fits your criteria best.
