cosplay ideas

Post by paulineFTW » Sun Mar 02, 2008 11:11 pm

being Asian, one would think that it'd be a breeze to find inspiration for anime costumes.
but alas, my tan skin limits my options.

i know that it shouldn't really be a big deal, but a mental block has built itself in my brain. -___-;
now, i can't even think of who i should cosplay as who's not tan.

i'm short, i'm kinda chubby, and i have thunder thighs.

and apparently, i have a very limited imagination.

and this is why i need your help

all suggestions are welcome.

hair-coloring and other alterations aren't really a big deal.
(as long as i don't have to bleach my entire head, because i'm afraid my hair will hate me and fall off in protest D: )

here are a few pictures to maybe give you guys a better idea of what you think i should dress up as: ... 01d4f9.jpg ... ec216f.jpg ... c9bb07.jpg

Thanks very much!

that is if you want to go with tan people, those are a few I know, but cosplay shouldn't have to go with your skin type, if you like someone, do it regardless, the point is to have fun ya know? not to worry if your skin tone looks right. I hope those pics helped though!!!!!
