Who could I be?
« on: August 14, 2006, 06:47:52 pm »
This sort of topic may seem a little late, and it would be... if I hadn't already been working on a costume for this coming up con.
However, I would like to ask everyone here for some advice.
For next year - or for another convention, who could I cosplay as?

Here are some (cliche) pictures
1, 2, 3, 4

For any stats -> I weigh appx. 145 lbs, I am 5'11" and I'm slim.

Thanks in advance.
Also, hair can be changed.

well, given your stats you could pull off Light from Death Note or Spike from Cowboy Bebop with ease. the hair is already similar to both, except Spike's is green =D Also, you could pull off Wolfwood from Trigun.

there are plenty more you could do, i'm just telling you who you kinda look like.

I also think it's god to cosplay as someone from an anime you like or who's personality resembles yours if it's just a litle bit.

Like... You wouldn't want to be a total spaz if you're playing a character who's really calm or silent, ect. :)

Simple costumes would be your best chance now, unless you can get fast shipping.

I think the idea for Spike or Wolfwood is good, and I've actually already  gotten a tip to perhaps be Light (Raito) from Death Note, so it's all good to check out ^^

I understand. My friend who has cosplayed a few times already has been supervising me with my first costume and has already briefed me on basic ettiquette  :lol: I plan to play the character of whoever I will be, or at the very least, just pose correctly in a photo (atleast that would be right).

I'm leaning towards Spike though because I love the show and his character so much.. but also because I think I could pull it off. I'm not going to do any costumes half-assed or anything... full green poofy hair if necessary... ^^;

I'm already finishing up a Syaoran costume for this K-con, no worries. I'm not trying to start a costume just a few weeks before the con :P

Heh. I love Death Note (haha, icon...) and I think it'd be nice to see some more DN cosplayers at the con.

I wish you good luck on your cosplay! Hopefully I'll see you at the con. :)

I can't help but think of the characters from Wolf's Rain hehe. They're pretty easy to put together too. I even have a Kiba plushie!
I think Kiba or Hige would work...

I would say that you could definately pull off a good Wolfwood. ^^ The costume wouldn't be that hard to put together either, so that's a plus!

Good luck with whatever costume you choose!

B)  I took all but one of those pictures.  Heyhey, I was going to mention Kiba to ya, but then I didn't know if you wanted to grow out your hair.. and then I forgot all about it.  But he has the same hair color AND blue eyes.  :3

Well Kiba would be really easy besides growing out my hair.. long.. which could be interesting XD

Reconsidering Wolfwood and stuff..
it's going to be a long time before I will make another costume though, plenty of time.

Another thing to consider is if you want to be noticed a lot or not. As in if you want a lot of people to run up to you and take your pic, then you would want to pick a char from a popular series. Or if you don't, well then a series less known.

I haven't thought of that ^^;
The thing is I just want to be a character that I could play well, and if that means more photographs then.. that'd be nice I guess.

As for Rock Lee... O_o; I dunno if I should be insulted XD
I would have to get eyeliner... and then practically black duct tape for eyebrows..  :lol: It's possible but I dont think that would work well for me.
He's also got a bowl cut.. yeahh lol

I kind of doubt I'll be Spike, mainly because of my looks. I'm not a great match for him and I like the show too much to try and impersonate that character.. As for Kiba, I think I could match it well if I just grew my hair out looong now, and in time for Sakura-con. The clothes would be easy to attain, too. Maybe with that in mind, if I do Kiba then I could also do another character with long brown hair? Possibilities...

Haha, umm... is the guy in the background of picture 3 named uhh... Kevin or something like that? And did he used to go to Green River?

Yeah, anyways, I promise I'm not a stalker, the person in your pic just looked really familiar, and I notice you live in WA too, so I thought I'd ask. ^_^;;;

Umm, basically most of my cosplay is based on pointing at a character and being like, "1. They're cool/I like them and 2. I look and act enough like them that I could pull it off and 3. I can sucker atleast one other person to do this anime with me."

Sorry, I know you were looking for actual suggestions... hmm... *dunno*

You are cosplaying as Syaoran this year?! Aww! I wanna see~
Which version of him are you being?? The Tsubasa or the CCs??

Onto suggestions for cosplay... i could think of a few!

If you werent scared to wear a wig/dye your hair... i could say that you wouldnt make a bad Ichigo maybe o_o

I dont know how popular this anime is... but you could also pull off a Renton from Eureka seveN quite easily, as he has brown hair x blue eyes: Ref Pic!

Hmm... in the picture where you are looking upwards it reminds me of the Organization XIII Roxas xD;;; But then again that would involve hairdye/wig.

I definately think you could do a good Kiba! Like everyone else has said. You'd be growing out your hair a bit for that one.

Pretty much i think you could pull off alot of characters quite easily, as long as you arent ruling out getting a wig or something like that.  I could keep listing some more, but im going to stop now xD;

That's still good advice :)
I keep changing my mind about who I'd like to do more... maybe I'll end up having enough time to do several costumes

:O I forgot about Roxas... For that I would dye my hair the same shade as Syaoran, I think.. just a light brown, right? (Or is it blonde?)
Roxas would be interesting. I'd have an excuse for carrying a keyblade around too :P

Oh and all the people you have in mind would be great for mentioning :o
I appreciate all the ideas on here, I didn't expect so much response, but I am new here, too. I'll have to make a list of all the suggestions here with the details too...


EDIT:
OH! I forgot... I'm going soon as Syaoran from Tsubasa Chronicles.

Ah! I love Tsubasa <3333
It's definately my favorite manga @_@
Are you wearing your Syaoran costume to Kumoricon 06?? =O

As for Roxas his hair is more of a blonde with dirty blonde streaks in it.  
Ref 1
Ref 2
And i agree, carrying around a keyblade would be fun~
I wish i could have made one to go with my Kairi costume
But i definately dont have time >_<;

Yes, yes Tsubasa is an awsome manga that I even got my friends into lol. If you died your hair pink and grew it out a little you might be able to pull off Shuichi from gravitaion.

Yes I'm just doing Syaoran for Kumoricon 06.
Thanks for clearing up his hair ^^; It does seem to be based with blonde and dirty blonde streaks.

Well, if you'd like a slightly more... boisterous character, you could always try Nabeshin from Excel Saga.

The costume is simple enough, though you'd need a brown Afro. :lol:

Yup!
So that could be difficult.

I just think anyone going as Nabeshin would be sweet, and completely glomp-worthy. ;)

Though, scary in a sense.

If you can find a costume shop, you can probably find one ((If only Halloween was just a bit closer! >.<)) though a red//pinkish blazer could be a difficult find. Hurrah for thrift stores!
Unless you plan to sew one that is.

Oh I am actually planning these new cosplays for Sakura-con which is in April. I will have plenty of time, so if I wanted to do several costumes it would be fairly easy.

I can wait until halloween ^_^
Also a red/pink blazer could be dyed, right? I am not very knowledgable about making costumes but I think that is one possibility.

Time is always good!

Hmm well Afros seem to be pretty common around Halloween, so you can probably get one then. Though a brown one could be hard. Maybeh'?

It could, but you'd want it to be mostly cotton, or some such material ((I don't know much about dying really)) but make sure you soak the item in salt water after you dye, since it helps hold it in.

I dyed a 100% cotton turtle neck for my SnJ Kakashi outfit, and the dye leaked and now the dark blue top is light purple. >.<

Though I bet you could find a red blazer at a thrift store.
Good Will could have I bet, same with the Salvation Army.
