  • Hey everybody,
    I've been thinking about cosplay for a long time now but I dont know who I want to be. I know a big part of cosplay is being a character that you enjoy; however, resembling the person would be enjoyable for me.

    Id appreciate suggestions from pretty much any genre (anime, video games, movies, comics etc.). I wouldnt mind wearing contacts or wigs. Also, creating my own costume would be fun.

    Im 26, male 6'2, decent shape, blue/green eyes, brown hair

    Id be happy to answer and questions to the best of my ability. I've watched a lot of anime and played many video games, so I probably know most of the suggestion but if not I'll just look it up on google haha. Thanks for any help, it's much appreciated.

    Also I have no idea how to put photos on here so if anyone can help a brotha out, that would also be appreciated XD

  • Hello bro!

    I understand what you mean by resembling a character. Cosplaying is of course about having fun but whenever I see someone at a con who looks like the character they're cosplaying, it's always bonus points and that extra "Woah!" effect. So I understand what you're going for.

    Anyway, you know that I dropped you a suggestion earlier but I decided to through the series that I'm familiar with and their characters, if I find more suggestions for you. I found some and I think you would rock these dudes as well (going after your profile photo):

    Sol Badguy (Guilty Gear, game)
    Nagakura Shinpachi/Isami Kondou (Hakuouki: Shinsengumi Kitan, game)
    Alvin (Tales of Xillia, game)
    Obi-wan Kenobi (Star Wars)

    Holy shit, I can totally see you as Obi-wan Kenobi (I can't believe that he didn't cross my mind earlier!) :thumbsup:

    Good luck and hope it helps.

  • The first thing I'd like to ask you is, would you like to cosplay a character you actually like or do you just care about the resemblance to a certain character?

  • For now, just resemblance.

    I probably should have mentioned that I shaved the facial hair haha

  • How about...

    Aragon or Bromir from Lord of the Rings
    Westley or Inigo Montoya from Princess Bride
    Professor Lupin from Harry Potter

    Those are the first characters that came to mind.

    I have to agree with Frozen Angel here, I think you'll make a great Obi-Wan Kenobi! Even without the facial hair :D You can try cosplaying him in his young version from the Phantom Menace :love:
