Have you decided yet? I'm in the somewhat the same predicament lol... going to my first convention in October. I'm lean, 6ft tall, have a 6 pack and muscular. I was trying to find a good enough character to cosplay as, one that would also show off my abs lol. I was thinking about Gray from Fairy Tail, or Sinbad/judal from Magi... any other ideas?


You could do Tsume from Wolf's Rain. He's a character pretty much everyone would recognize but not one you see at cons very often.

Though, after reading the description of yourself, the first character that immediately came to mind was Nicholas D. Wolfwood from Trigun for some reason. I know he doesn't show his abs but he's an easy character to put together and pull off for a first time con goer.



Wow, Wolfwood from Trigun matches my complexion exactly, and the hair/eyes and height are in the right place! You're good at this, great call, I think I found my cosplay :D.

Make sure you make the open-gun form! Forget the clothed Box-Cloth gun!

Open Gun all the way.

I think I was the one who suggested the version of your former cosplay lol~
If you don't mind me suggesting something else, here's a few I thought of:

1. Prince Ashitaka from Princess Mononoke


2. Genderbend Black Rock Shooter


3. Noctis from FF15


4. The black haired guy from Kyoukai no Kanata. It comes out in fall 2013 anime, so I don't know his name yet.

HAHA you did suggest the new world luffy, so thanks for that I was actually going to try for Ashitaka this year ... I'll probably cosplay for the 2-3 days at AX so I'll need a couple more >< I really dig the dude from Kyoukai no Kanata, hopefully when it comes out i'll have more details

Have you considered Shiro Amada from Gundam 08th MS Team? He's got several outfit variants and possible props, depending on how you want to approach him and how much time you want to spend.

I would say cosplay Luffy from One Piece as suggested above, you would make a good Luffy :3
or Kanji from persona 4 if not maybe Ahkihiko Sanada from Persona 3

I'm 5'7"
Average/Athletic build
Tan
I'm not averse to wearing wigs or complicated cosplays, though I'm better at making armor than I am at complicated sewing.
I'm open to both Anime and video game suggestions.

Any of these sound interesting, or on the right path?

Marth might be a bit light toned for your tan skin, but he's got some nice armor and most people recognize him (especially thanks to Smash Bros)
Parn from Lodoss is one I want to do, to be honest, but I think you'd probably fit him well
Kilik from Soul Calibur might be fun! (If you're willing to go shirtless)
Another slightly topless but armored option, Van from Escaflowne

Thanks for the suggestions, I appreciate it. I'm actually a huge fan of Marth because of Smash Bros. and Fire Emblem and have been wanting to make a cosplay of him for awhile. I don't mind being shirtless, I do plan on doing Haru from Free in a few months as my easy cosplay. I don't necessarily want armored suggestions, it's just a skill I've leveled up a bit.

ON A serious note: who should I cos-play as? I'm a manly man 510 about 230 pounds bmi under 20% . I'm not a fan of wigs so I'm really looking for some serious good looking anime characters that are bald.

1. NANA - YASU ~ isn't really a cosplay for me, I were that on the weekends. (only less jewelry)
2. Spiral king ~ gurren laggan. I don't have the confidence to were a hair chest peace like that. or want to show of my farmers tan that much.
3. Ikkaku Madarame ~ bleach is far from a favorite of mine
4. Alex Louis Armstrong~ fma ~ i think the atena makes the character and its a little to silly to pull off.

help~ video game characters and anime are welcome. Are there any cool ones left? ones that wear cloths and are not shirtless all the time lol.

I can totally see how no wigs would limit you... hrm...

Nappa would be an easy choice, not sure how into DBZ you are, though... of course, they also have the Namekians if you don't mind some makeup and a bodysuit... and antennae.. oops

Egil from Sword Art Online, perhaps? He's a nice guy, and has a few outfit choices if you want variety to choose from.

Since games are okay, maybe Malak from Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic? Not sure how you feel about the jawpiece or being evil, though...

Hi guys!

Since I can't decide, I thought I'd better come here to ask about cosplay :3 What would you suggest for a girl who's 5'3", average build I guess, with pale skin?

I have brown shoulder length hair but I'm willing to wear a wig, although not extra long I'd like something fairly simple since I haven't really done much cosplay before, but I could probably get stuck in with something more advanced

I was thinking of someone like Touko from Pokemon:



But I really wanna get some more anime suggestions before I decide

If it makes any difference, here's my anime list: http://myanimelist.net/animelist/Inklid

Thanks for your help!

EDIT: Oh yeah, I'd probably be modifying or buying clothes, not making from scratch :3 I can't sew just yet >.<

Touko seems like a great choice! But hmmm.. if you want some other options that don't have a super long wig, and can be made with modified clothes...

Several characters from A Certain Scientific Railgun would probably work for you - fairly standard clothes with minimal adjustment, various hair styles that you could adapt to, nothing too long

I'm always a fan of Lina Inverse, of course!

Kaoru from Kenshin is fairly straightforward, if you can find the right pieces

Relena from Gundam Wing has a huge wardrobe to choose from, so that might make things easier

Or perhaps Rin from Fate/Stay Night?

Do any of those sound interesting to you?
