First Time Cosplayer needing help!

Post by Harakiri » Fri Jan 04, 2008 9:04 am

Here we go.

This will be my first Con I shall be attending. (Naka-Kon) I have plans to do A-Con in May and AFW in August if I can go before I ship off to basic (I'm going into the Navy). Currently, my friend who is a experienced cosplayer is wanting me to cosplay at this convention. She's come up with a few ideas, but she's suggested for me to post here to gain ideas and reccomendations from the forum members.

I'm about 5'9 or so, and the following is me and my hair. I'd be willing to dye it, but I'd have to be able to wash it out in a day or so. I'd be more than willing to wear a wig because my school is half-ass backwards and won't allow us to have unatural hair colors.


I'm open to any suggestions, and I'm even willing to crossplaying as a male. I'm thinking about going as Tifa. Well, Cloud Bashing Tifa (AC costume). I am not a fan of Cloud nor Tifa. xD So this is my happy settling.

One of my costumes is going to be a Turklet that I RP. Her hair is similar to that of the lead singer of Paramore's hair. But the red of the hair is like...Reno red. xD

AND! I'm wanting to do a skit I have to get this SOON so I can get started on writing the skit.

Tifa looks like a really good choice. Also, without needing to dye your hair, you coul see how you like Mistress Nine from Sailor Moon, Scissorwoman from Clock Tower 3 (little hard to come by pictures of her, but I could help you out there), Sailor Mars, Rue-Chan from Princess Tutu, Mary/Maria from Harvest Moon, and my personal favorite of all these choices: Yuuko from Schrödinger's Lion.

You could dye it a dark greenish shade and easily be Sailor Pluto, I think.

I see some potential for Ranma? XD
