Old one just got archived so making a new one.
Get inspiration for future cosplays here, post 2 recommendations to other people and use the template
>>
>>10824613
We should repost the templates that were at the bottom in the last thread since they hardly got an replies (if at all).

Reposting mine, I'll owe two recs. One thing I enjoyed was how happy people were to see a character they liked. If anyone has recs of under represented characters, I'd be glad to try to cosplay them.

Maybe Lelouch/Zero?

>>10824650
Not enough info to give anything seriously. You know what kind of character you want just pick a show you liked. If you can pick something with distinct hair then go for it, because you can get wig practice in.

Start simple. It’s more work than you think.

Can you read? “Normal clothes or school uniform”

Doing other persona characters should be fine then right? Like doing the Persona 3 protag or Naoto Shirogane could work

>>10824676
Could try Mugen from Samurai Champloo. If you end up making Vash's outfit yourself you could reuse some of the materials for that

I'm not a novice to metalworking. Making aluminum cosplay armor shouldn't be too hard, and it would kill two birds with one stone (I'd get to practice my cosplay skills, and my armor making skills).
>>Lelouch/Zero
>Can you read? “Normal clothes or school uniform”
"would be ideal for now". Lelouch has a school uniform anyways, and anon says he is willing to do stuff
>>masc
???

Mugen is a good idea. Not sure what I'd be able to reuse, though.

>>10824801
I used to main genji when I played overwatch
>>
>>10824858
The red cloth used for Vash's cloak could be used for Mugen's shirt

What's the point? Most cons ban metal armor or props of any kind. Plus it's more expensive, more uncomfortable, and heavier than something like foam.

He's telling you that you don't look masc.

Crossplay first season version of Mikasa from AOT would look good on you.

You can Joshua from The world ends with you, or Jake from Lit School of Darkness (if you're not afraid of uncommun game!).

>>10824676
Check out the Dark Souls armor gallery, like the Faraam Set, or the Monster Hunter one, the Espinas set for example. Sure you will find something as you like, as for the props!
But try with foam first, with cons, better be safe.
>>
>>10824650
I agree that there's not enough info to give many recommendations. You could google "anime main characters with black hair school uniform" and get thousands. To narrow it down I guess, My Hero Academia uses the same male uniform for any of its characters. Todoroki is most in likeness to Akira.
>>
>>10824676
From your recommendations, I'd say Kaiba. To add on, I could see you as Link from Zelda.

And in reference to your notes: A good rule of thumb is to pick one skill to try for every costume. Assembling a full outfit (hair, makeup, costume, underlayers, props) is already so difficult that trying to tackle several new things at once makes it a monumental task which will either lead to you dropping the project or struggling the whole way through. Especially if its your first costume, you want to build your skill gradually over time. Using Kaiba as an example, you could pick making the prop from scratch (in any one of the areas you mentioned) or say, metalsmithing the thingies on his coat.

Also, the other commenters are 100% right that you need to check your convention's rules on metal. Most of the time it's not even allowed in props let alone full outfits. Additionally, that's gonna be heavy, limit your movement, loud and inconvenient as shit. I wouldn't attempt unless you're: a larper, a historical reenactor, planning only to use the costume for a photoshoot. Truthfully, not many of these costumes lend themselves well to real metal anyway. It's anime logic clothing.

Good luck with whatever you choose!

>>10824777
I love all of your choices. I think Miyamura or Venti would be great choices for you. To throw some more at you:
>Inosuke from Demon Slayer (he shares that pretty boy / ambiguous look you're describing)
>Any shoujo / josei male love interest desu
>Sora, Roxas, or Riku from Kingdom Hearts
>One of the pretty boy male bachelors from the Harvest Moon Series
>The main character from the Case Study of Vanitas
>>
>>10824960
I second that
>>
>>10825110
Moon Knight or Khonshu. Any main character from Assassin's Creed, but they do have an egyptian character specifically.

I am new at cosplay so I bought the one above but I plan to learn to how to sew and use foam for armor to do Goblin slayer. Also gonna lose because I am a fatass, so skinner cosplay that show muscles is a goal for me to work on.

Copy that! Khonshu is in the folder now, and I found a jackalhead guy. Xd

>>10825286
Lord Mashall, why not! This guy is pretty cool!
But Riddick, meh, I'm not a gym rat. Xd

Returning to my con for the first time in like 3 years later this year. I'm getting old now but still I love anime and all that and still have the passion so I want to return with a nice cosplay. Pretty much all other info is in the pic, let me know if I should add some pics of the "considering" ones since I ran out of space. and of course any other questions, cheers.

I'm definitely not good at reccs seeing as I'm asking for some but I'll try
>>10825110
Dat fucking Helios G armor idea sounds awesome, would love to see a pic. I'd say that monster hunter mix sounds like a cool idea but I'm biased towards monhan. Fox seems like the best bet since it's recognizable and you can easily copy his mannerisms.
>>10824650
Someone else said it so now I can't get it out of my head but I'll second Joshua from TWEWY
>>
>>10825772
The protagonist...

>>10827726
Not super good at giving suggestions but your description of yourself is honestly hilarious. Zhuge Liang would be fucking amazing or Dokutah from Arknights (easy to buy and loose coat with a hood).

Thanks. Yeah I'm leaning towards that now. Especially since I saw how easy the costume is to get a hold of.

In the last thread and the previous there were girls posting. The point isn't too look for beautiful people though, it's to give recommendations.
