I wish I didn't look like I did so that I could cosplay. *grumbles*

Who (or what) are you unable to cosplay as and why? O.o

I wanted to cosplay as Yuiko from Loveless and Machika from Immortal Rain.

If you look up pics of either, you'll see why I can't.

Remember... there are ways around everything...

I'll add to the "what are you trying to cosplay?" camp... let us know... we'll find a workaround...

Hell... even I've managed it!

There aren't ways around my face though, that's the whole problem. :/

What's the problem? You have two eyes, a nose... a mouth, and they're all in the right place...

If you're looking at cosplaying someone from a non-liveaction series, manga or game, it makes no shred of a difference how exactly you look... people respond to the outfits rather than the faces...

I mean, nobody has eyes that big in real life, do they?

At least you're not limited to cosplaying characters with a beard (for want of looking like a man fey if I try anything else... and we're not going there...) and no, I won't shave if I can help it!

You could always play as Sailor Moon...

Men seem to be more popular than women to cosplay that lot these days. :P

Ahem... quoting my previous response...

(for want of looking like a man fey if I try anything else... and we're not going there...)

:P

Anyway - elaborate... who're you wanting to cosplay?

I've got a photo somewhere of a bloke dressed as Sailor Moon somewhere... oddly, his was one of the best costumes I saw that day.

As to characters.. Yuiko from Loveless and Machika from Immortal Rain. Never gonna happen. :/ *sigh*

I disagree...

You've already got the hair and the figure down for Machika... Now it's really a question of finding the gloves and the yinyang top! (if that's the way you're wanting to go of course!)

Personally I think anybody can pull off a costume regardless of appearance if they have the confidence, and it seems that you're just unsure of yourself...

I mean... (don't do this at work, but) have a look at the people who've cosplayed Yuna from Final Fantasy X - A huge range of sizes, shapes, skin tones... and (nearly) all pulled it off...

Just as an aside, if I ever find myself cosplaying, I'll be going as Auron from FFX...

Now that is badass!


Just need to get a couple of years older!
