What are some of your favorite cartoons / animes and video game series - what are some from of your favorite characters from those shows and/or games, or favorite characters in general?

and even though it's not necessary, sharing your body type could be helpful as well. ;>

Been a bit busy and it has kept me out of this channel. Well, I will say, your photo and your build, it really inspires me into something truely classic from the nintendo DS era if it interests you. Originally, this game came out in 2007 in limited quantities for the DS. But demand was so high and the game was so rare, it had been re-released multiple times and just recently again for iOS. It really ranks my number one game for any Nintendo game in terms of emotion, story, music and depth.

The World Ends With You

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_World_Ends_with_You

The character I mostly thing of is Daisukenojo Bito, nicknamed in the game as "Beat"



This game of course is a bit less mainstream, but if you are somebody who loves nintendo games, hopefully you have played this. If not, I highly recommend checking it out. Costume isn't overly complex, but you should be able to pull it off and be immediately recognizable by any game connoisseur.

If not, I can try and think of more, but this character really sprang to mind first.

Heyman Breda - Fullmelal Alchemist


Snow Villers - FFXIII series, though a common character to cosplay in the original game, I recommend (if you liked the series) to do XIII-2 or Lightning return version if you want to be a bit more unique.

Hrm... Brain is having a bit of trouble today, but for something brand new, and possibly interesting, this would fit a more built cosplayer plus is a quite complex character. I am enjoying this show so far, but from Nobunagun which is new for winter simulcasts on crunchyroll, I really don't know the actual name of the character. In my searching to figure it out, he is only referenced as Dogoo and is the one sort of leading and behind the defense of earth.

Good luck with it! And dont be worried as much about height. Build usually has more of an impact than anything. Cosplay is all about the character and being able to present that character's persona is key. As a rugby player, you probably would be able to present a strong presence. In terms on "dogoo", the show is so new that the character is still mostly unknown but so far seems to have a very commanding presence. Whether will be good or bad cosplay, will want to watch and see if you like the direction, show and character.

I agree with Vaporisor, you could definitely do Snow Villiers. He was one of the first that came to mind looking at your picture. I have seen a lot of the XIII version, so going for the other outfits would be more original in my opinion. I'm not sure if this is your first cosplay or if not where your skills are at, but the outfit he wears in Lightning Returns is a very simple one. In fact, if you look around, I'm positive you could find most of the things in thrift stores.

Keeping in the video-game area, there's always Malik from Tales of Graces or if you want a Western video-game, I'd see you as Edward Kenway from AC: Black Flag.

And seriously, height isn't so much of an issue. There's always ways to cheat during photoshoots and the most important part of cosplay is to have fun. So long as you do, most people will excuse you for not being a 100% accurate to your chosen character.

Ok so I am going to Springfest on March 15-16 and I need to know who I should cosplay. I have an AKB0048 cosplay but nobody really knows that anime so If you can help that would be great.
I am about 5'5", a little bit on the chubby side(only when I slouch), Brown eyes, some freckles, pale skin

always helps to list what anime and or games you're into at the moment, and what kind of characters you like to cosplay - but I picked out some characters from decently popular things I think would fit you.

Lyra, the female player character in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver



Aoi Asahina or Akane Owari, characters in Danganronpa and Super Danganronpa 2



Hange Zoe / Hanji Zoe, a Squad leader from the Scouting Legion in Attack on Titan

The animes I have watched are Clannad, Angel Beats, Go Sick, Baka to Test, Air, Kanon, Shugo Chara, Lil Pri, Aikatsu, AKB0048, Little busters, tokyo ravens, guilty crown, vampire night, bakemonogatari, nisemonogatari, to aru no railgun,strike the blood,kyokai no kanata, kore wa zombie desuka,Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou Desu yo?, sword art online, accel world, fate stay night, maid sama, fruits basket, brothers conflict, yumiero patissiere, gauken alice


Mostly I am looking for a cute tomboyish girl, one of my ideas is to go as chizuru from hakuoki
I like idols, girls with swords, girls with some sort of weapons
I really like animes with demons, vampires, magic, anything supernatural
I like cute shy girls because it matches my personality, not a huge fan of attack on titan, pokemon or dangan ronpa

any of the animes that involve some sort of girl who is one of the protagonist because i mostly relate to them

my nickname is chibi because i am cute and act small.

There's Yuki from Vampire Knight, and a handful of the female characters in Sword Art Online look fitting, namely Asuna and Silica. Kyoko and Sayaka from Puella Magi Madoka Magica too, Kyoko is the really tomboy one though. Saber from Fate/Stay Night, or Asuka from Neon Genesis Evangelion, she has quite a few outfits rather than trying to make a plugsuit.
