You should Cosplay Liquid snake from MGS4
My barren plan to be a better man
Rots in abandoned fields
These idle hands inherit spoiled lands
As the hungry become the pigs
We reap (and) we sow
We mourn who we were
Love what we lost

Hello there. ^_^

Well, I think we need some information to work off of such as your favorite anime and manga...?

Are you able to make your own costumes, or do you plan on buying?

What type of cosplay do you prefer (girl characters, boy characters, fully covered, not so fully covered, cute, scary)?

Which shows/movies/games are you into? Any characters in particular you can relate to or who have a personality you'd like to take on? You already noted crossplaying is okay, so that keeps your options open. Are you making your costume yourself? Do you have the time and money to put into it? Are you willing to wear a wig, or do you want to use what you have as much as possible?

If you just want to grab a character that looks like you, you can try http://animecharactersdatabase.com/. Be sure to check out the series/game they're from, as you may get hentai game charries! o////o

Do whatever is going to make you smile at the end of the day. If you don't think you're in shape/your hair isn't the right color/you don't think people would recognize you/etc remember: There is a LOT of time before the con :]

Like me, I didn't think I had the body to do Amy and Jo from Burst Angel. I started dieting, and have already lost 30lbs and am more confidant about my body AND my cosplay.

Also: Whatever you DO decide to do, do it with confidence. This is YOUR costume, and people will respect you so much more if you wear it with pride, no matter how it turns out =]

Wow. Only match was some dude from a hentai. How are there not any characters that have the same similarites as myself. Bogus. Anyways do whatever you like, Melly. No one's going to yell at you for doing it wrong. Just punch them in the throat if they do.

Thankyou guys.
My favorite animes/mangas are Fruits Basket, Peach Girl, uhh... Sailor Moon, Kare Kano, Cowboy Bebop, FLCL, Card Captors...

And on a totally different note, i was also thinking of a ... Na'vi

Ignore them altogether. You're there to have fun, not to impress people, right? I wouldn't know that for a fact as I've only cosplayed once and wasn't recognized at all except by two people. I didn't care. I enjoyed my time there.

lol a na'vi could be cool.

And with Peach Girl; that could be majooooor fun due to the ganguro style :]
Sailor moon gives you lots of options
CARDCAPTORS IS EPIC

Also, if you haven't seen it yet, I'd suggest watching Rosario+vampire =]
It has some awesome characters as well ^^ I'm working on a Mizore cosplay for Anime St Louis

Right there you already have a good selection to choose from. Most of those other anime have a lead or secondary female character that would work. One of the sailor scouts would work.

Definitely just go with makes you happy. Its hard to find the right character. You basically have to ask yourself this: Are you cosplaying for yourself or others? What I do to figure out what I want to cosplay as is I think about all the characters I love from my favorite series. I think which ones I would love to step into their shoes. Then I take it from there and plan out how to make it. But the first step in finding which character is always difficult.

Good luck! =3

I could totally see you as Kagura Sohma! She's pretty easy to make if you are out of touch with sewing.

If you are into crossplaying to a character with long brown hair, you can go as Hotohori from Fushigi Yuugi. He looks like a girl a lot and you have great hair for it if you just want to straighten your hair and not get a wig :)
Motoko Kusanagi is mah womanz. ;3 HEEEEYYYY SEXY MOTOKO OP OP OP OPPAN MOTOKO STYLE
Cosplay for ACen 2013: Major Motoko Kusanagi--Ghost in the Shell S.A.C. 2nd GIG, Lucy--Elfen Lied, episode 1 "outfit' ;3 and perhaps an additional. Maaaaaybe :3
