Default Need Cosplay Ideas! Help!! D:

I've been trying to decide on an anime character (or a character from a manga or a game) to cosplay as. I've gone around and asked my friends only to realize that hardly any of them are otakus or even have an idea as to what cosplay is. *facepalm*
So, i thought "Who better to ask than the peeps on GO?!?!"
I am trying to go for someone who I somewhat resemble (because, let's face it, we have all seen people go all out with the wigs, accessories, etc. and still not look a thing like the person they are trying to cosplay as) so here is a pic of me...
Spoiler
*I put my pic in a spoiler because even after resizing it is still a bit large*
Here are some characters that I have already found on my own that I think are good possibilities...
Spoiler


Perferably, I would like for the character to be female, who shares the same eye color and/or the same hair color as me. (If not then that is ok.) In the picture my eyes are blue but they are mainly green.
Thanks for the help you guys!! <3

I Love Saber!!! I was actually thinking about cosplaying as her, but realized how low my funds were and was not able to purchase the costume and wig but im still looking for a cheaper version of her costume and maybe doctoring it up myself if its a bit off.

I agree with shinn. I think Saber would be a good pick. And if you have trouble getting the costume you could try the suit Saber.

@lili Would dying your hair be an option?

Just putting out some suggestions here.

- Lucy from Fairy Tail
- Seras Victoria from Hellsing
- Cagalli from Gundam Seed (destiny)
- Lacus from Gundam Seed (desinty) if dying your hair pink is an option.
- Cornelia from Code Geass (you will have to dye your hair though)
- Misa from Death Note
- Deaneira from Heroic Age
- Miu from History's Strongest Diciple Kenichi
- Hakufu from Ikkitousen
- Aya from Tenjou Tenge
- Blue Rose from Tiger and Bunny (I think she has white hair though or blueish)
- Princess Zelda
- Princess Peach

All i can think of off the top of my head.

When you do decide on your cosplay and do it. Post pictures

Also which convention are you planning on cosplaying on?

Thanks for all of the suggestions you guys. I think i finally made a decision. I may just end up doing Touru from Asura Cryin, simply because we share the same eye color, hair color, and even hair style, it's easier. I know that makes me seem lazy, but the less materials i have to purchase the better, because I am extremely short on funds. I really really wanted to do Saber because she is one of my favorite characters...EVER!!! T~T but i simply can't afford it right now. grrrr!!! curse this horrible economy!!! D: With Touru's cosplay I already have everything I would need besides the costume. Thanks again for your suggestion guys and @Muragoeth I will be sure to post pics of the cosplay when I'm done with it in this thread.

I think this version of Saber is affordable to do.


If you are in the US, any Good Will and Salvation Army would be great places to hit up. But whatever you decide to do, please share pics. XD

@lili .... Judging from your picture I think you are very suitable in the role of "Teresa of faint smile" From the Anime/Manga called CLAYMORE

if you don't already know about her then here is a link .. http://claymore.wikia.com/wiki/Teresa

and two of her photos so that you get my point ^.^



.... see you have a matching eye color too !! .. I wonder if mangaka saw you !!

Edit note : eh read the final line of your post now !! ... your eyes are green ... and you say it's looking blue !! ... it looked pretty grey to me !! ... **** I must be getting colorblind :P ... anyways ... still ... do what you think suite you best ... I will still vouch for a Teresa cosply ^.^
