Asking because I'm 5"7 and looking to cosplay a 6"2 character.

You can't control your height, so there's no point stressing over it.

If you're by yourself, no one will judge you over it.
If you're in a group, try to angle/pose shots so it's not obvious how not-tall you are.

it's not that big a deal really, and if you want to close that height gap a bit more, there are tons of cheap shoe inserts like pic related you can use to gain a couple extra inches

I don't know anon, 5'7" to 6'2? That's a tall order.
It would be a be a little bit of a reach.
You wouldn't want your cosplay to fall short, would you?
I mean I don't think most people would care but the look just wouldnt size up to your expectations
Really though, do what you want, just don't get your hopes too high.

Do what tiny Asians do, get platform shoes.

Important to who?
It's only as important to yourself as you make it to be.
It's practically not important to random casual con-goers who will focus on your height.
It's a tiny bit more important to judges in competitions as it'll fit the character more if you match heights but you can't change height so they'll only subconsciously mind.
Like >>9321519 said its only kinda important when taking pictures alongside characters from the same series but it can be helped by positioning for pictures.
