I really want to cosplay Frodo Baggins but several of my friends had conflicting reactions. A couple said that I look like Frodo while others say I don't look ANYTHING like him and it'd end up a wreck.

Well that sucks.

I want to know if I look enough like Frodo to cosplay him. Of coarse with makeup I'd make myself look more like him. Heres a pic of him:

I tried finding a pic of me that doesn't look like rubbish. The one here isint exactly what I look like. I have larger eyes (I just squint when I smile widely) (And those aren't my ears)

Is there any way I can alter my face to look more like him? (like for example making eyes bigger with make up, or skin paler etc)

Agreed, makeup can really change the way your face looks, as will the right wig!

If you want to cosplay Frodo, go for it. Personally, though, I think you'd be even more awesome as one of the elves!
