I want to cosplay someone easy..someone that I can easily make a closet cosplay with, but here are some of my standards:
1) I really want to cosplay someone who is similar in appearance as me. Height doesn't quite matter, because if I choose a taller person, I could easily be a chibi version of that character. (Oh, you can see how I look like in my icon and profile picture). I am about 4'11'' in height (just saying ). I have shoulder-length black hair, but I have a black wig that makes my hair about Xion/Yuffie length. I have dark brown eyes, but I own blue, gray, and honey-colored contacts.
2) I don't want to spend too much money on this character. I will gladly go to the thrift store for some pieces, though. I don't want to dye my hair for just that one Sunday either, 'cause it'd be a waste since I'm not staying the entire day, and wigs are too expensive for me too purchase. If the character calls for a hair color with just highlights or something, I'll do it.
3) I want to avoid school uniform and cat-eared characters, if you know what I mean by that. I also want to avoid ordinary-looking outfits (i.e., Love Hina, White Album, etc). If the character wears multiple normal-looking outfits in the anime, then I don't want to cosplay them. I actually want to look like I'm cosplaying rather than just being a random bystander xDDD. However, if the character wears the same outfit in every episode and is still someone ordinary looking, I might think about it, since the outfit is uhh...how do I say it...trademark? xDD (i.e., Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni)
4) NO, I WILL NOT COSPLAY AS L FROM DEATH NOTE. I don't want to look lazy, people. xDDD.
So yeah, I'd like a few ideas, if you don't mind . Thanks in advance!
