Me: I'm about 5'3 and have a sturdy build. I look rather young for my age(15), with a chubby face.
My eyes are, well, interesting. They sometimes look green, blue or like they have specks of gold. My hair is shoulder length, though I'm intending to grow it out. Its a honey blonde. My skin is Fitzpatrick Type 3.
And another reference...people often say I look a lot like Anna Chlumsky.
Oh, and I'm a girl.
 
My hair's darker though...more...

Animes I Like: Fullmetal Alchemist manga/Brotherhood. Some of you may have seen me as Lan Fan. I also like The Last Exile, Black Butler, Lovely Complex, Howl's Moving Castle, Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Tortoro, and Ouran School Host Club. Oh, and Hetalia.
I'm considering someone from Last Exile, Ouran, Hetalia or FMA again. I'm not really sure yet-maybe some from someone else, or anime that I haven't yet watched.
What I'm Willing to Do:I'm not a amazing sewer. I can do basic stuff. Also, since Kumoricon is in such a hot part of the year for three days, something fairly comfortable. Or that I can make comfortable. I learned this the hard way after wearing a mask with no mouth hole for three days...
Wigs, maybe. I generally don't like them, but a good one-and cool one-might be okay. I prefer dying my hair though. Overall I'd would like something that works with my hair, but don't let that stop you from giving other suggestions.
I'm fine with doing other genders.
And the costume should be fairly modest.

We got skipped >.<




Who should we cosplay? :D
Left me, right him

Female - Male
Brown Hair Currently - Black natural
Dark brown, dark brown
5"8' - 6"3'
Very small build - medium build
We like basically the same things, action horror animes, DBZ, Cyborg 009, Evangelion, Serial Experiments Lain, Elfen Lied, Black Lagoon, Tekken Street Fighter, Soul Calibur, Metal Gear Solid, .hack, Azumanga Daioh, Big O, FLCL, Ghost in the shell, Detroit Metal City, Cowboy Bebop, Ergo Proxy, Excel Saga, Gantz, Sekerei, Speed Grapher, Yu Yu Hakusho, etc.

We can do almost anything (He has an astigmatism and cant do colored contacts)


I think it'd be cool if you did launch from dbz and he did tapkar from dbz.

This is girly me looking amused:

OR pensive:

And here is some manly me:

And:

I do not mind being male or female, wearing glasses or having another hair color or style. I am just wondering who I look like to you. (:

Black widow from the avengers, (younger) Remus Lupin from Harry Potter, Bankotsu from Inuyasha, or Mika from Gravitation :D

My first time on the site!!
I'm 5"4 female and have an average/curvy build.
My budget is anywhere to $120.
Wigs and weapons are fine with me.
I like animes like Durarara, Naruto, Bleach, Hetalia, Soul Eater and manny others. I also enjoy games like Silent Hill, Final Fantasy and Resident Evil.
So who do you think i should cosplay as?

Hey there,

I'm already starting to prepare and I am thinking of getting another cosplay, but I'm not sure who I should be.

First off, I am a female. I'm also 5'7 and a medium size build.

Things I'm not willing to do:

Have a skimpy outfit.

Can't be uncomfortable.


Animes that I like: Sailor Moon, Pandora Hearts, Black Butler, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Ouran High School Host Club, ToraDora, Cardcaptor Sakura, Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicles, Kobato, Hetalia, Avatar: The Last Airbender/Legend of Korra and Chrono Crusade. Although, I am open to any character that doesn't belong to any of the mentioned series. :)

Lottie was my first thought.  But maybe also as Korra.

This might be difficult, but it'd be really cool if you could be Celty from Durarara (just take off the helmet unless you're getting a picture taken or are in some sort of situation requiring being in a full cosplay.

If you're willing to cross dress, you could probably do Squalo from Katekyo Hitman Reborn.

Going to try this again for next year
I'm a 13 year old female, 5'0 and I'm small build.
I have shoulder length strawberry-blonde hair and brown eyes (I do wear glasses but can do without).
I will do anything except for colored contacts (but I could try getting some)  or anything over the top like weapons.

So I'm a 15 (will be 16 in February) female, 5'5", medium build and shoulder length dirty blond hair, and I don't wear glasses.

I'm having trouble deciding who to go as this upcoming Kumoricon, though my original plan was Flandre I'm not sure I'm experienced enough with conventions to go to one with large wings and a prop. ^^;

I kind of want to crossplay as Russia, but I'm not sure what I should do. ^^;

Some anime/things I like: MLP:FiM, Hetalia, FullMetal Alchemist, InuYasha, Touhou, Vocaloid, GinTama, Panty and Stocking

I do not want an outfit that shows a lot of skin.  The most I'll allow is as much as Hatsune Miku shows.


Decided on my costumes for this year.  Russia, Miku and maybe Terezi.

Hey there! I have this wig that I need to use for a cosplay since it is gorgeous and has only been worn once.

The wig looks a bit more yellow IRL, so that's where I'm stuck in choosing a character.
This will most likely not go to Kcon13, but I just want to have some idea of what to use it for in the future.

I'm a girl, 5'3"ish, and smallish build.
I like a lot of anime and video games.
I tried using the anime character search engine, but it just wasn't working for me in that I didn't recognize ANYONE. That being said I have never really played Dating Sims, so try and leave those out for me. To add, I won't be a hentai or super slutty character.

ANY SUGGESTIONS??

I'm thirteen years old, small frame, 5'0, as well as female. I have fair-olive skin, long dark brown hair, and light blue eyes.
I do wear glasses but I can survive without them for 'con.
I like Black Butler, Tokyo Mew Mew, Maid Sama, Soul Eater, Hetalia, Ouran High, Mermaid Melody, Death Note, Azumanaga Daioh, (MLP too!) and, well I've tested about twenty others but the one's listed are those I've come to like more than the rest. (Yes I have read Homestuck) My price ranges from none and all the way to two hundred dollars. Sorry, but I don't sew. I'm comfortable with wearing wigs and I'd prefer if I could match the character's eye color. Please nothing revealing or over the top girly. {Other than Lady Ciel.}

Aah what the hey, this could be interesting!


<----This is me, I'm just at the 5'4" mark and am a bit... marshmallow-y, but I'm working on that! I'm kind of a dark blonde and I'm planning on getting a pixie cut next month, so by k-con it'll be really short. Wigs aren't an issue and I don't mind sewing. I honestly don't care if it's an anime, video game, or t.v. show.

I'm a female with an athletic build and is 5'6". I have short blonde hair and blue eyes. My face is almost square shaped.
I am open to pretty much any anime, manga or video game character.
I love to crossplay though as for my sewing abilities...there are none. XD
The wigs I have are a short pixie cut like dirty blonde one and a long curly black wig; though I'm fine with buying a new one. :)


Any ideas?  :P

Hello All,


I am beginning to prepare for the upcoming Kumoricon, and I am trying to find a cosplay that I can pull off well, and being an under-enlightened otaku is not helping my case. So I have turned to all of you, asking that you assist me in my dilemma.


I am 6' 2" male with very dark blonde hair. I have a sturdy build and I am slightly barrel-chested. Not exactly the build of an anime character.
I am willing to dress in anything, wigs included, save for cross-dressing (Sorry, I know I spoiled your fun) and full body armor. Also no unreasonable weapons (*coughCloudcough)* please.
I am willing to post pictures if requested.

Anything that is suggested that I haven't seen or read immediately goes on the list to do so.

Thank you for your help and good luck!  :)

I'm Male, 6'0", 135 lbs, and have a slim build

The left and right pictures are of the current me and my auburn-ish curly hair, with and without glasses as I'm nearsighted (I don't have a problem not wearing them, though). The center photo is several years old, of me with my hair straightened for a school play.

I'm really into a few different things; Kingdom Hearts, The Legend of Zelda, Cowboy Bebop, Sword Art Online, FMA: Brotherhood, Toradora!, Clannad: After Story, Firefly, american comics/superheroes, and Lord of the Rings among a great many others. I'm not a fan of Death Note or Evangelion, though.

I do have Scott Pilgrim as a fallback, but I've always been one of those "go big or go home" kind of guys when it comes to this stuff.

That being said, I'm cool with wearing makeup, masks, wigs dying/straightening/cutting/letting my hair grow out and the like, elaborate costumes, etc. I just got a job so I'll be able to put some real money into this if I wanted. I haven't tried my hand at building (armor) or sewing, but I know people that do. I won't Crossplay though.

That about covers it... I'm open to suggestions (I guess I wouldn't be here if I wasn't)

I just started this series, but your description made me think of the character Sentarou from Kids On The Slope. If you can keep a beat, it'll just add to it. :)

Hello All,


I am beginning to prepare for the upcoming Kumoricon, and I am trying to find a cosplay that I can pull off well, and being an under-enlightened otaku is not helping my case. So I have turned to all of you, asking that you assist me in my dilemma.


I am 6' 2" male with very dark blonde hair. I have a sturdy build and I am slightly barrel-chested. Not exactly the build of an anime character.
I am willing to dress in anything, wigs included, save for cross-dressing (Sorry, I know I spoiled your fun) and full body armor. Also no unreasonable weapons (*coughCloudcough)* please.
I am willing to post pictures if requested.

So, I guess it would help that I am in both concert and jazz band? Although I play the tenor sax, not the drums.

Most definitely, dude. And if you're into Jazz, you might dig this show. It's about a group of students that get together to play Jazz in the 60's.

Might be helpful to have a picture of you, but based on your description I thought Tohru from Shiki. Not sure whether or not that works, and his hair's fairly light, but it could work.

Maybe writing what kind of stuff you like would be helpful.
Also finding a decent picture of Tohru was far more difficult than it should have been....

I'm a girl and am 5'6-7, I'm pretty sure. I have long blonde hair and green eyes. I have to wear glasses but I can take them off for pictures.
Anime: Wolf's Rain,  Howl's Moving Castle, The Cat Returns, Spirited Away, The Last Airbender,
Other: Silent Hill, Doctor Who, Supernatural, BioShock, Uncharted, Deus Ex
I cosplayed as Olivia Dunham from Fringe and Emma Swan from OUAT last year.

I'm still new at this and I don't really want to wear contacts. I can do wings and stuff, but I have no skill in sewing.

Hey guys, I'm stuck again this year!
I want my next cosplay to be pretty rad (armour, props, etc.).
I plan on doing TERA online or something from Lineage II - as the mmo's have pretty outrageous stuff. With that being said, I'm still just so unsure!
Is there anything you guys see fitting for my face/body that has some pazazz? Thanks guys!! =]


I'm tanned, 4'11 (5'4 in heels), 38-28-37, wigs/contacts o.k

Im curious.
I am pretty pale, really dark brown almost black eyes, I'm pretty short, 5'1 or something like that, and I use wigs.
I cross-play so free  free to throw out male characters as well.

[size=78%]Hey, so my younger brother (who is 17) finally said he would come to kcon. He is 5ft 7in, with short, brown/blonde hair. He is kind of built(or chubby) but can be all muscle by kcon. He wants someone who has rolled up sleeves, and no wig. I don't want him wearing black if it is going to be hot. Me and my boyfriend are going as Yoko and Kamina, but my brothers cosplay doesn't have to be from Gurren Lagann.[/size]
[size=78%]I have someone who is going to make all of our outfits, so dificulty isnt a problem.[/size]
Just a cute little neko trying to find a warm lap to curl up on. >^.^<

Description: I'm a girl, I have red hair that's fading back to light brown. My body size is Bust: 41 in,Waist Size: 36 in ,Hip Size: 44 in,Height: 63 in, but I look bigger then I am. I am really pale. My eyes are light green/blue but it does change. I generally wear eyeliner only on my water line....

Anime and manga:Pokemon,Demon King, Shuffle, Naruto, Sailor Moon,Black Birds,I Am Here. (Those are the only one the comes to mind at the moment.)

Cosplay considering or doing: lThis year I am for sure going as Sakura from Naruto but I am too pale even for her. I want to see if I could be Harley Quinn and I wanted to do misty but her legs shows too much.....

Willingness: I'm willing to buy wigs (Look at notclose2pefect on instagram to seethem.) and cosplay. I want to spend under 100 on each one, I have no sewing skill what so ever.. Oh and I won't be able to do any eye contact kind of things...
I kinda have a hard time cosplaying consdering I hate my leg and tummy showing because  I looks fat. I am willing to try step out my comfort zone a little....

I know I posted last year, but I want to get an Idea of characters for this year! I had some ideas but...I realized they'd be too hot to wear In late august Early September. XD So I'm looking for some that aren't super layered outfits.
Hair: Blond/colored
Eyes: Brown
Height: 5'3
White but I tan easily
I've got more of a dancers build.

These are the most recent photos I have that I'm not wearing a wig or in cosplay. XD Ahaha




I Pretty much Love all Magical Girl Anime's I'm really up for any suggestions but I don't really like Si-Fi or Law Anime too much.
I am down for wearing a wig, contacts, I've got a pretty good grasp on sewing but I'm not down to paint my whole body a different color. XD
I cosplayed as Misa From Death Note and Winry from Full Metal recently so I don't want to do them.
Also, I'm def. going as Amulet Heart from Shugo Chara this year!

Hey, everybody. Looking for cosplay suggestions for my wife.

Open to any and all suggestions, just toss out any similarities you notice.

Here are a couple pics.

I could see her going as Meyrin, the maid from "Black Butler" (I think that's her name), Roberta from "Black Lagoon," Dr. Matsudaira from "Blue Seed" (though most probably wouldn't know who she'd be), a nurse from "Silent Hill" (because those are always fun), and Rena from "When They Cry."

Hey, I had been skipped earlier, so here I am again. :)

I'm Male, 6'0", 135 lbs, and have a slim buildThe left and right pictures are of the current me and my red-ish curly hair, with and without glasses as I'm nearsighted (I don't have a problem not wearing them, though). The center photo is several years old, of me with my hair straightened for a school play.
Anime: Cowboy Bebop, SAO, FMA: Brotherhood, Toradora!, Clannad: AS, Baccano!, Hetalia, Summer Wars, among a great many othersGames: Kingdom Hearts, The Legend of Zelda, Mass Effect
TV/Movies: Firefly, Sherlock (BBC), The Lord of the Rings I do have Scott Pilgrim as a fallback, but I've always been one of those "go big or go home" kind of guys when it comes to this stuff.That being said, I'm cool with wearing makeup, masks, wigs dying/straightening/cutting/letting my hair grow out and the like, elaborate costumes, etc. I have a job so I'll be able to put some real money into this if I wanted. I haven't tried my hand at building (armor) or sewing, but I know people that do and can learn. I won't Crossplay though. That about covers it. Thanks everyone!

So I'm looking at your list, and here's what comes to my mind...


Cowboy Bebop - ...maybe as Spike.
SAO - No idea what that is.
FMA: Brotherhood - Maybe as Roy Mustang, but I'd have a better idea if you had black hair and a clean-shaven face...
Toradora! - Definitely as Yusaku.
Clannad - I don't know the series well enough to give an opinion on this, only that Tomoya would not be a good option.
Baccano! - Perhaps as Gustav, Luck, or Victor...
Hetalia - Maybe as England.
Summer Wars - I could definitely see Kenji, but King Kazma could be awesome.

O my! You are just, kind of gorgeous o.o
And you have perfect eyebrows... ! You could probably pull off a lot of cosplay but I think you'd make a superb Yuuko (xxxHolic) =D!


______________________




Hello! I am always curious as to know what people think I'd be best in cosplaying, so I am open to anything!
However with the re-lease of FFX I want to pull out a cosplay I've been meaning to since it came out.
I am currently deciding between Yuna or Rikku, and I am just not really sure! Who do you think would be better for me?
Thanks!
