Cosplay ideas?

Post by Shaylyn » Fri Jan 30, 2009 1:11 pm

'kay, so let's cut to the chase.
  • I don't have a costume idea.
    I know almost all about Naruto.
    I know some about Fruits Basket and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.
    I know a little bit about Death Note and Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle.
    I've just started watching Bleach. [First five episodes.]
I was thinking about going as TenTen, but that's about all I could think of... :(
Any other ideas?
By the way... I'm 5'7" and I weigh in at about 135 - 140 pounds.
[My hair usually goes down to just below my collarbone. I have brown eyes, if you can't tell from the picture.]

Your hairstyle reminds me of Anko (Naruto, obviously!), the way you have your hair up and the fringe! Though going as Tenten would be cute, too.

The only other person I'd suggest is Senna, from one of the Bleach movies, but if you want to keep canon (and perhaps not be flamed?) I wouldn't cosplay her unless you had no other choice. That's just me, however!

Good luck, sweetie.

I agree with Blackknightress210, with each of those three.

Thank you for the ideas! :) I never would have thought about cosplaying as Anko, and Senna looks like a decent character. :D
[I don't always wear my hair up... :P]

Anko's my first choice, then TenTen, and Senna's my back-up... on a side note, d'you think I would be able to pull off a Tohru Honda?

I thought about it, and you probably could. How long is your hair when it's down? It seems more like it would be Kagura length than Tohru! Then again, I have hair that's only 2"-3" long so I have horrible judgment! Haha.

It rests about just below my collarbone.

Hmm. Kagura might be better if you're trying to avoid a wig. But I think her school uniform is super cute, and you can wear a cat backpack!

I haven't seen a picture of Kagura in a while, so I had always thought it was more of a Haruhi Suzumiya kind of style... being Kagura would be fun. Yeah, I think I'll do her! Then Anko, TenTen, or Senna will be my back-up. Thanks! ^.^

They all work I guess. Still it is what you decide. We are here to give suggestions that is all.
