This is why I don’t care about “accuracy.” Often people who find their “perfect character” become one trick ponies who just cosplay one character for the “uwu u are like them in real life!!” attention.

I'm too lumpy for her, but man if I could find the self-discipline to tone my body I know I could have fun. Also, I think I'd pass away on the spot from showing that much skin, but I've always dreamed of finding a work around that like mesh or slightly altering the design. Alas, until that miracle happens I will just appreciate her as artwork.

>>10454633
I agree with the other anon, Usagi would cheer you on. I understand how wanting to protect your spot in a group shot can affect your decision though. It's a shame that you even have to worry about that. Groups can be so catty, it's unfortunate. I hope you find a group of girls that really embody the senshi attitude and hype your Saturn up.

I'm the sort of pale that looks dead awful with pale blonde/white wigs, so this won't ever happen. Maybe one day I'll find someone who'll let me make her for them, and I'll make Nono to match.

>>10454353
If you ever do pick her up, some advice from someone that started to make her and then realised that they hate long and short stitch, working with embroidery materials that aren't DMC threads is a good idea, and will save you so much time.

But let me tell you one thing. Don't be like me and wait.
Do it.Do such a beautiful job with the wig, accessories, and tailoring that you are the best Saturn. Cause it is all kinds of awesome when you show up to a group shoot looking immaculate despite not being a perfect body match.
People admire that shit and the high you will feel from it will encourage you to try more costumes you think don't suit you.


Characters I'd do but would never be able to pull it off:
Ignis - FFXV
9S - Nier

She's amazing. Could you modify the color of the wig a bit to suit your skin tone better? Either hand coloring it or just having it in an ashy shade of pale blonde perhaps? You should totally make Nono if you don't do this one. Diebuster is so fantastic and there's not enough cosplay from it.

It's what a majority of cosplayers do for her decode outfit, imo it's never a bad idea to wear something that smooths out skin coloration differences. I also don't think it'll change much of the design to make the back and front pieces connect at the sides with a white part, like how the original birdy design has.

you could also connect them with side pieces that are a transparent version of whatever material the back/front pieces are so it "looks" like they're separate, but aren't

I really like birdy, the decode design, and the show, I'd love to see more cosplays of it!

I've seen people suggest building onto a dancer's bodysuit like the other anon mentioned. I'm also too lumpy for Birdy, but I'd love to cosplay her.

Might go for this for Halloween. Everything seems (reasonably) easymodo except for the wig (Which I night commission) and green shorts. That and I’m (not too) fat for the cosplay.

>>10459903
I cosplayed Ahiru for my first handmade costume and it was a really good experience even though my costume was shitty. I feel you on the gracefulness part. The wig was the least difficult part for me. The costume, specifically finding a tutu that wasn't too costumey but also not priced like a real ballerina's tutu was the hardest part. If you're ever up for a moderate challenge, I'd say it's definitely worth it to see the excited expressions of people recognizing what show you're from.

Rackam from Granblue Fantasy is a cool dude, I want to cosplay him. Unfortunately, I have literally no experience with cosplay beyond the crappy cardboard Bionicle costumes I made as a kid. Doesn't help that the other stuff I want to cosplay (Monster Hunter and proper Bionicle cosplay) is significantly more complicated than this dude.
A friend of mine recommended I start with something simple, like Splatoon, since that's what she did, but I kinda want to get experience making armor.

Are you sure you're not just trying the wrong shades of blonde?
You should be able to wear either warm tones or cool toned. A lot of blonde wigs have a warm yellow tone that doesn't look good on some skin tones.
>>
>>10462269
I think Sango wouldn't have any problems being recognized. She's a prominent character is a hugely popular series -- especially with women -- that is getting a new anime right now. Her design has multiple recognizable features, too. Making and holding the gigantic weapon might be difficult for you, but it will also make you more visible to be recognized.
>>
>>10457788
You don’t have to make a silicone suit. Most fat suits are comprised of stuffed cotton or spandex cushions that attach to the body. It’s fairly simple once you think of it as just making wearable pillows. The only thing you might have to worry about is facial prosthetics if you care a lot about that level of accuracy, but I think you’d be fine going without.

It's not an issue of body type, my body would actually be great for Bayonetta. But it's the fact that her costume is so insanely detailed and I would want to use real leather, real human hair, the works.
And due to how form-fitting her outfit is, I would have to use a soft, stretchy leather like kidskin, lambskin, or calfskin which means embossing would be a fucking nightmare, not to mention I would need a lot of skins to make the whole bodysuit and I might have to put seams in weird places like the middle of the legs

This is true as all get out. Dark skinned do lighter people all the time. We fucking love anime, but there seems to be this stigma that if lighter skinned people do it, then it's a problem. Fuck all that shit. If you like it, then do what you want.

Admittedly, as a dark skinned, I tend to go after cosplays where I don't have to show too much skin if only because like >>10454385 said, I tend to treat cosplay like fighting games and get a little mad with myself if I'm not the right color lol

Sometimes I do wish I was a girl cause it's far more exceptable and easier to do oppisite gender cosplays for any male character and you can do female characters.

There is nothing wrong with "half assing" it. You'd be surprised how good things look and how many people will recongize you even if you aren't 100% spot on.

Don't feel demotivated. I remember seeing a group of men at AX dressed as Sailor Scouts (as in the seafaring kind mashed with best girls) and they were immensely popular for photos. Also, I can't remember the name, but there's a famous tiktoker who is black, has a big fluffy beard, and cosplays characters like Froppy. He's pretty popular for it too. Whatever way you choose to interpret a female character's cosplay, I hope that it makes you feel happy and confident with your cosplay.

I wish I could cosplay as Kusanagi from Ghost in the Shell. I'd want to cosplay as one of these two [or three, as one is a maybe] versions:
- most of the variants of 1989 manga vol.1/1.5 Motoko (pic related, would be one of the versions i'd want to cosplay as the most)
- the 1995 film adaptation version of Motoko
- [maybe] the Stand Alone Complex (season 1) version of Motoko

The only issues are that
1. I'm a guy
2. I have really hairy legs (when I was in 9th grade, my dad compared my legs to that of the legs of a hobbit. "hobbit knees")
3. No idea how I'd change the sound of my voice to sound like a milf (not entirely necessary, but if its possible then id want to just because i could)
4. I have facial hair and small amounts of neck hair, and slightly bushier-than-average eyebrows

I could potentially make it work with my height, not sure if any of you would disagree. I'm 5'7" (170cm for the anons that use metric). I am not fat either, and my weight is somewhere between 122-130 lbs, so my physique isn't too bad. I have good hips, although I'd need to lose a bit of fat on my torso, thighs, and some of the fat around the area where my soleus muscle is located.

I also dont own anything to make the cosplay, nor do i have a wig for it :(

I love buffy and guarantee you can make recognizable buffy cosplays. Get a good wig, pick one of her more iconic outfits (the red and black one and prophecy girl work well), and have a prop like a stake or that battle ax thing she had
>>
>>10495193
ive never seen or heard of Galgrease or Greaseberry.

I'm a big fan of GITS and I've watched everything in the franchise, and read the original 3 volumes of the manga, so I'm well-acquainted with franchise. I find that to be an important factor as well.

I might be able to pull off something like the Motoko shown in attached pic, as it hardly shows any skin, which might eliminate the issue related to having lots of hair on my arms and legs.

I just have no idea how I could make my face look feminine enough, and my eyebrows are an issue as well. No idea where I'd get the cosplay either, and I have zero knowledge on how to make clothing and props. I might make a thread about my issue later

Height is less of a problem for solo cosplays, but if it's a couple cosplay then height will make or break some cosplays. Imagine seeing two adults with the same height cosplaying a pair known for the height difference, like Mei and Satsuki from Totoro or Howl and Sophie from Howls moving castle.

Too fat and square. Though the character seems pretty easy to cosplay if one is not too square - with long sleeves

You could pull off Part 1 Dio, but DIO is beyond any human.

There's part 7 Dio that's achievable but you still need muscles.

I'm surprised no one has gotten it right yet. The trick is the bird-legs he has under it all. Though you can get stilts that work like that and disguise them to look like bones.

I think you'd actually want to be off-model with that anyway.

It’s so hard to make naga-like tails look half decent, I’m too scared to even attempt it

I just don't have the skills needed to make armor like this up to my quality standards. Its not even a body type thing, its just a skill level thing. Even poor version of Chamber would take ages to make, and I can't justify investing that kind of time into a costume I know I can't do well enough to be happy with the result.

I would love to cosplay as Utena but Im a dude so I just wear a black jacket and pretend in my mind.

Genuinely what's the point of wearing a fake chest to cosplay a titty monster
Like the whole point is you want to show titties, that's her defining characteristic
Red hair and titties
It would make more sense and even be less ghastly and stupid to wear fake anime eyes
You want the attention associated with cosplaying the titty character, so you get out your titties
You're not artistically drawn to this titty monster or something
What is the deal with women?
Fake breast plate
Lmao
really?

who tricked you with a breast plate?

Thomas the Tank Engine obviously

I’d really like to cosplay Celty since she is mute and wears a full head covering making crossplaying easier, but I am afraid I would bake alive wearing a helmet and bodysuit for long periods of time.

No one, I've never even heard of one before, the idea is just laughably absurd.

Just put air vents inside the ears

Could even wire in some small PC fans for extra cooling.

>>10588577
I was going to suggest that too, but then I thought about the hair tangles if anything goes wrong.

>>10588603
Put some fine mesh between them and your head and make sure they blow inwards, to prevent any hair disasters.
