I think this would work well for darker skin tones, the character's are bronzed skined and darker. besides I would love to see one at a convention for shur.

I suggest just slightly altering the cosplay, like many black Sailor Moons I've seen with brown hair. They love amaaaazing and everybody can still tell who they are because of the hairstyle and outfit. So just try a different shade of pink or another color you think would work for the character. Some people might get upset, but they are racist assholes so ignore them.

Don't forget about Anthy from Utena! She's a good choice if you want to go for a more elegant cosplay. Her school uniform is recognizable too!

There's regular anime Anthy:


And "Adolescence of Utena" Anthy


her school uniform remains the same in both versions.

Why not try crossplay?
I feel there are many darker skinned male characters out there that would be even more badass if done by girls

I have always wanted to cosplay. I really want to go to animazement next year but I often ask myself: "What would you even cosplay as?". I am 4'11, kinda medium toned. (I'm Mexican but people think I am Indian). I have black, shoulder length hair that sometimes likes to do that Rukia thing in which a small strand of it sits between my eyes during random times. I have no idea what to cosplay as though since I am short and somewhat darker skinned. Also, I have a quite petite figure. Any suggestions?

This is what I was thinking. I have the same problem as the OP and I want to look the part with my darker skin.

I just googled for darker skin anime characters and found this cool character and title.

michiko malandro from Michiko to Hatchin



"Synopsis
After escaping from prison, the sexy criminal Michiko rescues an abused girl known as Hatchin. The two are about as opposite as they come, but their fates become intertwined through the connection of a man from both their pasts. On the run from the police and Hatchin's abusive foster parents, the unlikely duo set out to find this man and ultimately discover their freedom."

Read more at http://myanimelist.net/anime/4087/Michiko_to_Hatchin#uqegLBJ2Vk5pTQIu.99

I think I'll watch this next.

Honestly I think everyone should twink a cosplay a bit to suit them rather than following a character 100%, I mean I don't think hardly anyone can rock a anime character in real life otherwise >> IMO

Here is a nice dark skin character though (Shania - Shadow Hearts) (Though again,I think she would need twinking still)

Hannah Anafeloz from Black Butler 2! She has a few different outfits

If you want to do crossplay, then there's also:
Cecil from Uta No Prince Sama:

Cassim from Magi:

Good luck with whatever you do choose to cosplay tho! u v u
You can also cosplay light skinned characters with alot of concealer/foundation, or do characters with abnormal skin colors by using body paint!

There's Nygus from Soul Eater and if you want to dress up as a guy there's Kilik. Without getting spoilery here, if you look at the first few pages of Soul Eater volume 18 you'll you'll see another female darker skinned character that could be cosplayed.
