Lets make a thread about cosplays that you want to do but are on the fence about or can't/won't for various reasons (or delaying).

Post pic of who and why.


I'll start


Gowther from the Seven Deadly Sins (I'll get better taste in anime one day)


>Be guy (even tho character is a boy)
>Not as petite or feminine (have almost no "boyish charm" slightly?)

I am however very slimming so i'm on the fence


What about you?

my favorite character from literally anything ever i would die to cosplay him. but i am very small, too feminine, and my skills at crafting aren't anywhere near where they'd be to make this (particularly the arm ugh fuck me up)

also asahi from haikyuu because once again i am very small (anout 5'3") and his hair would be so difficult to make look good with a wig. and my natural hair wouldn't be right for it, plus i don't believe in using natural hair for cosplays
>>
Chibi moon. I've got D cup breasts and a womanly body though. Also I have a bit of a childish face but I'm not sure if it's childish enough. I don't want to look like I'm fetishizing her or something :( maybe if I do the teen version that was in one episode? I really want to do the sailor uniform rather than black lady.

>A tomboy/sort of manly looking but has a baby like face
>Is 187 cm so can't do it
I don't want to do Diana because I'm not comfortable wearing her outfit and I'm not really that cute either.

Iron Maiden Jeanne from Shaman King

I'm short enough and have a decent face for her, but I'm super curvy with thick arms. I also have absolutely no idea where to start with her outfit. What would I make it out of???? How am I supposed to walk in shoes like that? And that wig. The wig alone would cost over $100 and be impossible to manage, let alone store properly.

The struggle is real for us

Gowther is simple enough i think if i get the stuff and feel ridiculous id be fine with the money loss and knowing at least i tried it

>Have yet to see a guy do Gowther

Not worried about looking girlish more so than just looking awful in general although i guess that's anyone's fear of a specific costume
>>
>>8736163
top 3 things?

In a nutshell. He's kind of a woobie.

Sebastian Stan just does a great job conveying the internal conflict with his eyes alone. Also helps he's hot as hell.

And personally, that robot arm really turns me on.

speaking of woobies.

everyone would just think i'm cosplaying a Winchester if i do this. and my facial structure is entirely wrong.

cosplaying live-action is a lot less forgiving when it comes to looks.
>>
>>8736174
GO D um as other anon said it helps a lot that sebastian stan is amazing at acting through only his facial expressions

but overall i guess i'm just a sucker for characters who have been through shittons of trauma and brainwashing and just have pain in their hearts (like with wtnv when i listened to triptych i immediately fell in love with kevin along with everyone else)

idk i just think he's really interesting overall?? just the idea of all the shit he's been through and that he was strong enough to break through it and save steve in the end i have a lot of emotions ok like i just want to wrap him in a big soft blanket and give him some hot cocoa and protect him from this terrible world
>>
>>8736183
Just get a wendigo Hannibal. That'll help a bit. You're not at all wrong about live-action cosplays being unforgiving, though; if you don't look exactly like the character, good fucking luck.

I feel your pain

>Have awkward in between

I wish i could just be way more feminine or very masculine

At least i am very slim i guess
>>
>>8736126
even cosplayers with the best legs still wear pantihose/nude dance tights with costumes like this. Don't need to feel bad about that at all.
>>
>>8736210
just buy some bikini swim bottoms?
>>
>>8736111
I am a 34DD, when I'm trying to cos cuter characters/and or crossplay I just wear binders. makes things easier, bind even though she's a girl char to make it more accurate that way

Genos is same for me, anon.
Mostly worried about getting that armor look right..

Will attempt though, it's a dream cosplay!
>>
>>8736078
A little makeup can go a long way anon. Just a bit of eyeliner, foundation and highlighter can make a huge difference. You don't have to go drag to be a little more feminine.

Though do be prepared for the older fujoshit who will think you're from Gravitation

i will never have the body or athleticness to do this. more than that, i will never have the right attitude. he's my favorite character to play and i love the idea of bringing him to life in all his discomfiting glory, but i could never do this 2edgy4u attention whore freakshow justice.
>>
>>8736224

like as a guy your options are

>huge muscle shirtless guy
>massive armor costume
>be super thin with a pointed jawline for all the "nerdy" and shonen characters

thats it. also being able to sew means nothing

I can somehow cheat my way out when the series did not explicitly mention about the character's height. But when the character is known to be short, there's no way I can cheat my way out without looking like a fool...

I really want to wear it but i'll probably get in alot of trouble if I get caught dressed as Filia. If there was a way to conceal the face I'd wear it.
>>
>>8736344

That's actually pretty helpful. I may need to look into this.
>>
>>8736366
Oh God, i would have no problems at cosplaying him, but i just HATE IT that i have niether height or body type to do it properly.
>>
>>8736552
how about one of those anime masks, i cant remember what they are called. Upside you'll hide your face and you can cosplay; downside its the mask.
>>
>>8736147
It might not be underarm fat. It sounds like breast tissue migration.
>>
>character is 4'7
>I am 5'6
>accurate heels would probably make me 5'8

I am flat chested (barely B cup) and have a baby face, but I am really not sure I would do her any justice with my height as it is
>>
>>8736291
Binders press down and out, but if you're really firm you might still get some boobage going on.
>>
>>8736761
>caring this much about height
I'm 5'10" and I'm going to cosplay whoever I want, even if they're barely 5'.
>>
>>8736504

Yeah that's very true. My roommate is buff as fuck and cosplays Zack (FF7) he does the character so much justice.

I guess i at least have the whole slim/thin and tall thing going for me. Somewhat pointed jawline too
>>
>>8736552

What kind of commie land do you live in where you are going to get into trouble for doing things on your own free time.

Half your coworkers are probably functioning alcoholics who party every weekend. Dressing up in something kinda skimpy is worse than that?
>>
>>8736289
This is also a dream (the koi umbrella outfit tho) and I have the same problem. Even though I already lost weight, I still have rounded shapes.
I hope one day you get to do it, anon!

>>8736338
Good luck, anon! I really hope you get to do it.
I think I might attempt him with just the arms exposed sometime but damn, the sclera thing is really bothering me. Curse being half blind..

You sound like Tumblr. You should probably go back there.

It makes me feel happy to see other tall girls saying this. All of my favorite characters are the cutesy loli ones, aside from Sakaki. I just wanna be cute too
>>
>>8737031
hey i got asked why i like him so much so i answered. the fact remains he's my favorite character but i will never be able to pull off a cosplay of him

I'll cosplay him for you and we can hang out, while I complain to you about all the qt girls I'll never be able to cosplay.

Look for tutorials on natural look makeup. You probably don't need to go into full on contouring or whatnot, just get your face smoothed out, slim out your nose, highlight the cheekbones, and use a tiny bit of eye makeup (soft liner and mascara, doesn't even need to be black, just dark brown would work) to make your lashes look thick. Bam, you're a pretty boy without looking like you're trying to be a girl.

I haven't seen a person do King or Escanor either. I guess those characters are not that popular from the manga. I seen Elizabeth and the Captain so far along with tons of Diana cosplayers.

>>8736163
>>8736176
Him and Steve had a thing going on in the comic books. I'm not joking. Total bromance and as the other anons said he's a woobie because Marvel hates him. He's the only character that stayed dead for a long time.

>>8736275
You can get a fake ass. Not sure about the rest though.

Gowther needs some rep at cons, i'm fortunate enough to be just about as slimming as he is to help do him justice.

>>8736114
Let's all have bad taste in anime together. I like Diane too, but have no interest in wearing that body suit. It's why I decided to go with Guild in her full armor.

>>8736183
just get the semi-round glasses he sometimes wears, anon

Man I really want to, cosplay wise he's pretty simple it's just I'm so short and feel bad about that. Haha would it be frowned upon if I wore like wedge shoes or platforms or something? He walks on his tip toes anyway
>>
>>8738273
Tekken player anon here

If you're trying to do King you can just get a fake or faux mask and tail. Do one of the alternative outfits and make 'fake' muscles. There's more than one King. There's drunk King, Mexican King, Armor King, Suit King, the options are limitless. You don't have to do P1 version. I seen people do King before so it's possible unless you're a manlet or a really short woman.
>>
>>8738247
At least it's not quiet as high cut, but the trade off is tots. At least people have the option to do her human sized version. Where she wears the matching waitress outfit or casual outfit at the end of the anime.

Guila has her civilian dress too if I wanted to go casual.
>>
>>8738455

I did like her casual attire, If i get Gowther together i'll hopefully run into a Guila at my local cons in that. (although both versions are great)
>>
>>8738392
You can do a platform/wedge + sole inserts combo if you'd like? I've been meaning to try that myself to see how I like it, considering I'm damn short. Good luck, anon! Go for it, husbando needs more cosplays.

I wanted to cosplay as the Demon Cyborg for a while now but there's no way in hell I could pull it off. We are around the same height but to get the armor, the neck pieces, and the fact that I'm not 19 makes it impossible.
>>
>>8746672

IMO Armor in itself is a bitch to deal with
>>
>>8736807
Right? Like have they seen those pictures from Asian cosplayers that crouch for each othet in photos to have the height be right? It doesn't have to be accurate all the time.
>>
The list is actually pretty long but Homucifer probably tops it. I'm a stocky guy with a masculine jaw line that isnt easy to contour away. So any character with a really feminine figure or outfit are just a no go. Unless i want to do a "joke" version, which yeah i do that for Homura in her regular mg outfut but as a cosplayer i kind of what to do a serious version too. That's just not going happen tho.
