what's a cosplay you've always wanted to do but for one reason or another never did?

I always wanted to cosplay Anarchy panty but was always too self conscious before now to do it. I've lost about 80 lbs this past year and finally feel like I could do it.
>>
>>9659861
Anarchy stocking for the same reasons as you, but I'm still probably not a great weight for it. 5'8 and 140 lbs feels borderline to me
>>
>>9659863
Same boat as you, but with characters like Froppy from Boku and Mayoi from Kabukimonogatari. Going to try getting in better shape this season since I can't use my inability to take hot weather as an excuse.
>>
>>9659886

I really want to cosplay from Maria-sama ga Miteru but without a partner you'll just be another weeb wearing a seifuku and wig for fashion to the vast majority of people. All the characters with elaborate floor length poofy dresses too. I want to make them myself and don't want to use shit material, but that's a lot of money for a hobby I just do by myself. Maybe if I had friends that were into it'd seem more worth it. As it is I'd rather spend it burando or other hobbies.

The only time I've ever been tempted to cosplay from something I'm not into were eroges and I really want to avoid that for obvious reasons. I don't even want to cosplay Kuroneko because of that, much less characters from eroges I actually have read and like. Seriously though why are eroge characters so much cuter on average? The ones that aren't half naked that is.
>>
I dont think I could ever do something so beautiful any kind of justice. Im just not elegant enough for Sailor Cosmos
>>
>>9659863
I was never particularly big but the cosplay community feels so strict on it so I never tried. I'm 5"5' and weigh 115 but most of it is straight muscle now from work. I don't feel like 140 is bad at all, especially given your height. you should do it. :)
>>
Lately I've really wanted to do Colt from Hunter x Hunter, but I have little experience with armor but also, much as I that bird boy, I feel like translating his look into real life would be maximum uncanny valley.
>>
>>9660291
As a huge hunter x hunter nerd, who's cosplayed it twice you should do it! Maybe skip the weird beak thing on his face
>>
Less because of me and more because my bf is a giga normie

I want to cosplay La Pucelle from Magical Girl Raising project but ironically cosplaying the sole male character in the show is too difficult to do as a guy.
>>
I want to do group cosplays of my favouritre anime and manga, but I have a shit taste so noones would cosplay my crap.
>>
I got into Atelier games because of how beautiful the character designs are, but always felt too intimidated to make any of them. I'll be working on Totori over the coming months though!
>>
I've always wanted to cosplay Ami, especially her school look because it would be so simple, but it's always been on the backburner and I never got around to it.

The fact that she's a swimmer makes me more self-conscious than I normally would be about my size (even though I swam in varsity swimming despite being chubby, so I should know better. Oh well).

Literally any costume from mmo's and unknown console games I've played.
1. I can't sew
2. I can't make props
3. Most of the time they have so many details it ends up looking like shit irl
4. Too poor rn to get someone to commission with
Until any of those things change, I'll keep buying avaible cosplays and dream of being a rich person with own designer at night.

I kinda wanna cosplay marimite too because it's fucking gay and cute and i have good memories watching this as a young weeb.
Who would you want to cosplay as?

Yo is this Blade and Soul? Because if so, same.
Not to mention that body-wise I'm basically the opposite of what most toons in that game look like (i.e. I have 0 tiddies and stumpy legs) so 99% of the costumes would probably look like shit on me even if they were perfectly made.

Zone-00. Really any Q-jyo character is hard to fit because of insane body proportions but Benten is the love of my life. Sadly I am not a tall androgynous man but a short curvy woman. Forever out of my reach.

Meredy, but I feel too fat to do her justice.

How is being "tall" a problem? Sailor moon characters have very elongated features, just look at their legs
>>
>>9661582
It's the combination of all my physical characteristics that make me think I can't pull it off. I know being tall is not a bad thing when cosplaying a sailor senshi, as long as the said person is fit and slim.

I have a large, sensitive head, and I have a really tough time wearing wigs as a result. I can't even wear headbands since the pressure quickly gives me a huge headache, and now my hair is getting longer and heavier so putting my hair up in a ponytail gives me a headache, too.

Because of my stickler attitude toward cosplay accuracy and head, any character that doesn't have shoulder-length light brown hair and side-swept bangs isn't a viable option for me. Luckily, I can cosplay Yui Hirasawa from K-ON, or Totoko from Osomatsu-san. But I can't/won't cosplay Winry Rockbell from FMA:B, Eru Chitanda from Hyouka, or anyone else that requires a wig.

Her X2 outfit is probably more flattering because of the dark side panels. I don't think it looks any more complicated than her X1 outfit.

I do Harold (from Tales of Destiny 2) already but kind of want to do Elraine, but it would be hella expensive the way I want to do it and really hot and impractical. Plus no one knows who Elraine is.

Almost everything I want to cosplay are female characters, and as a male that's almost impossible. I also don't really have a group of friends that could support me, so exposing myself to the harassment is not very tempting at all. Have done some crossplays though, but do it rarely unless they look ambiguous to a person who doesn't know the material, and don't put any real effort into passing. Still, the things I REALLY want to do and put a lot of effort into will probably never be done, because it can't look good or even acceptable in the first place.
It could be a nice dream to work towards getting better at cosplay and do what I want, but there is no male path that I want to follow so I'm simply stuck at the beginner stage with semi closet thrown together lazy stuff.
>>
I've always wanted to cosplay Dread Queen Serqet from Smite, I totally love this skin and how it is inspired from Alien makes me nerd out! The reason I didn't cosplay it yet is... the way I'd like to do it requires a lot of skills in FX makeup and at the moment I don't have the money, time and enough knowledge for it. This is a dream cosplay, someday I might be able to achieve it

I always wanted to cosplay Boba Fett since I was a child. The first time I saw him on the TV I fell in love with the whole outfit and character but never can I imagine being good enough to actually make it.

Moana, because we have a similar height, build, head shape and hair. I want to use my natural hair so have been extra careful with it, but don't have the time for cosplay anymore if I want to do it justice. Cosplaying people (especially if the culture is linked to a real culture) demands more accuracy and detail than, say, a Pokemon fur suit.

Would love to do some Phantasy Star 2 cosplay but I've got three (possibly four) problems:
1) my ugly ass round face that doesn't match my body type
2) nobody fucking knows or cares about PS2 and wouldn't recognize it
3) Nei didn't carry a gun in the game and I still want to make it even though I'm shit at props
4) I have dark skin

I love King, and I'm confident enough in my body to show it off as slimmer characters, but I'm just not big enough for King. I see other people try it, and even if they're fairly /fit/ they all look like twigs as King because being HUEG is part of te look.

There're also a lot of teenage characters I won't do anymore because I can't pass for a teen.

I did her anon and my stomach didn't show that much. It would surprise me if you have stretch marks at the top of your belly. Even in the reference pic the skirt is a bit high waisted and covers the belly button. Just do a bit of ab work to tighten it up before the con and I'm honestly sure you'd look great!! although it was a bit reavealing for me so I wouldn't recommend doing it in the winter time since you'll get chilly

I'm already super self-conscious about my arm size despite being visably much stronger than almost everyone else I know, I don't think i'd be able to handle going back down, and I still want to do slimmer-guy costumes so King is pretty much forever a pipe dream.

There are a lot of cute girl characters I'd like to cosplay but I don't because I have a really ugly face and I'd just look like a retard dressed as some uguu anime girl.

Also, a lot of male characters because I feel like my face might look a little better crossplaying, but I'm short and skinny and a lot of my favorite male characters are tall and muscular.

I must do the character complete justice. I'm slim and have a very androgynous face that would be perfect for it. I know how to sew well. But I absolutely won't allow myself to do the costume without historically accurate materials, there's just no way in hell. It has to be perfect.

You live in the 21st century, use materials that would suit the character of this class in modern times. Soft high quality fabrics, embroidered (not printed) patterns, ornate metal or wooden buttons, shoes made of real leather, hat with real feathers.

If it helps, anon, "historically accurate" materials along those lines would more than likely be silk, which (although still expensive depending on what you're making) is still readily available. For a source, check out silkbaron.com. Also, if historical accuracy is what you really want to go for, check out historical costuming blogs. A fair number of them have tutorials on sourcing fabrics, how to draft accurate patterns, and sewing historical garments. You can also find period accurate shoes online as well.

Aisha Clan Clan. I'm 6 ft tall but a booming ham beast. I'm so angry I'm getting fat. I was born without a thyroid, like legit diagnosed, I'm medicated though so it's straight up my diet. I've always had this really bad relationship with food. I either binge or starve. I just want to be thin again. I'm the heaviest I've ever been at 183 lbs. And my face is like surface of a pummeled moon. I'm just fucking gross, I am stuck cross playing for my group because of my height. At this point I wish I could cosplay anything feminine.

Don't be so hard on yourself anon, you can still recover from that weight pretty easily, I'm sure you would look great if you lost just 20 lbs. I do feel the binge or starve thing, personally I cannot keep any food in my house because I'm so susceptible to binge eating.

But I can't wear colored contacts because of an eye injury
My eyes are dark brown. Would I be able to get away with photoshopping my eyes in pictures, and walking around the convention with my natural eye color? Or should I just not cosplay him?

If you have a medical issue that stops you from wearing contacts no one's going to care. Cosplay who you like.

You could put some kind of green tinted "screen" in the eye hole parts of the mask that you can see through. Not really sure what would work for that. Otherwise, it really doesn't matter. Just cosplay him without the contacts

There are so many I've wanted to do over the years. A lot of younger characters I should have done while I was a teen 'cause I feel too old now. Or skinny characters I should have done before I jumped up 20 lbs. I also have a pretty gross face so there's that.

Do this. Buy some cheap lime green tinted glasses from Party City or ebay. Pop out the lenses and put them in your mask.

>Chii from Chobits. I'm dark-skinned, and I feel like her skintone is pretty integral to the overall cohesion of her design.


Nope. Chii wears a LOT of light colors that look excellent on dark skin while washing out people with light skin. DO IT.
The lace detailing on some of her costumes would show up best on your skin cause then you can actually see the detailing.

Just pick a blonde that compliments your skintone and you are set.

There's a bunch of stuff I wanna do but I'm worried that if I do anything sexy I'll get attention from people that WON'T FUCK OFF even if I clearly tell them NO, GO AWAY. I had shit like that happen to me even in street clothes and I don't want it to amplify.
I can understand approaching once, but why do people not STOP when I clearly say that I'm not interested?
