    Blackbeard would be my suggestion, too.

    Outside of One Piece? Maxi/Wake from Pokemon, maybe.

    The thread title really needs to be changed. The first few words say "General Cosplay..." on the main page, which makes me think it's the "General Cosplay Discussion" thread.

    Why not make it General Who Should I Cosplay As Thread?

    I'm not trying to be the only person out there who has a complaint to make but..doesn't these kind of threads get on anyone eless nerves? Seriously, I don't care who I look like, I just cosplay the characters I like! I think that's the best advice I can give anyone is that if there's a character you love, and you're wondering who to cosplay, go for that one! Like if you love Luffy, well hell, you look nothing like him? It's okay! That's what they make wigs and make-up for!

    I don't think we should be confined to cosplay just people we look like. Wigs and other tricks can go a long way in helping people achieve their cosplay goals!!

    oh your definatly right. there should be no constrictions, but sometimes it's fun to match yourself up with characters that you do look or act like. :3 for instance i'm short and have a *ahem* flat chest, so lina inverse would be perfect for me. lol plus i love to eat and can be obnoxious too sometimes. lol I only get annoyed when people are too reliant on this and are too scared to experiment.

    Honestly, I'd cosplay whoever I want, but that is usually someone I think I can pull off whether it be in similarities or gender (haircolor/style aside). I wouldn't cosplay someone like Luffy because no matter how much I love him, I don't think I can pull him off. I have no desire to. Also, I'm pretty much sticking to cosplaying women more anyway, with the exception of someday being Nuriko from Fushigi Yuugi.

    Its cool that some people can be just anyone and make it happen no matter what, props to you, to each his or her own. There's also a certain amount of skill in that, which I do not have as much of unfortunately. Never been good at binding myself >_>

    MoonNeko, the purpose of this thread isn't to upset you, it's actually for us to help others who are really new to cosplay. Most of the people who make these types of threads have never actually cosplayed before, or aren't that instructed on make-up or wigs, and we just give them a helping hand in pointing out an easy direction to go. The easiest way to do that is just to give them opinions on who we think they could probably pull off with the least bit of knowledge and resources.

    I mean, cosplay in itself isn't always easy in terms of putting ideas together. So while the suggestions we make to people won't always be the direction they take, who's to say that it won't be used in tje future?

    I personally love these threads! And it's not because I am too snobish to think that only looks matter on who to cosplay! I truly believe cosplay is all about having fun and share ones love for whatever character one decides to cosplay.
    But, it is also very convinient to ask others for ideas and help. Since you don't know me personally, and only by looks, some idea that I would never have thought of or known of before be revealed based on that! Who knows, it might turn out great! I have cosplayed a lot, and still I always wanted to try out a 'who to cosplay' thread, so here goes :)

    Both OP characters and others are welcome! Both male and female since I can crossplay too. I'm about 180cm tall/5.9 ft and normal bodytype

    Spoiler:



    And a full body shot, in costume of course since that's the only real photo time for me XD

    It's not upsetting, maybe it's more I don't understand why someone who would for instance love cosplay, wouldn't have a clue who to be. I never seem to have that problem, I love soo many characters from soo many series I would almost never run out of possible candidates for cosplay.

    Guess since I've never ever once asked someone who I should cosplay based off my looks I don't understand since the point of cosplaying for me is to NOT look like myself.

    some time its easier to do it if you look or have the same personality as the character you playing..

    Like me and franky... We both was raised by the sea we both like to be bare foot we both are powered by cola and we both respond to perverts...

    I might not look like him..But i can act like him lol.

    I too have this train of thought. I've got potential costumes lined up till i'm in the grave. I can never think of a moment where there isn't some character to cosplay.

    I think they're different types, Moon. Some people have opportunities to cosplay more often then others. Some people have only one or two cons to attend a year. And i'm sure everyone has a menagerie of characters to cosplay. Problem is the decision to choose who to feature during the con. Some people are more decisive than others, for those others another opinion may be needed.

    I agree with you wholeheartedly that everyone should cosplay who they want (within reason). But self-consciousness is very rampant. I too have doubt at times as what to cosplay and whether I'll look good or not exposing sides i feel unsure about.

    SIDENOTE: Kudos on differentiating categories among the general thread. YAY STICKYS!!:O

    sometimes it's just nice to get a different opinion too. maybe someone will have a great idea you'd never have thought of on your own. Also, skill level has something to do with what you can cosplay. or money. Like, I would have liked to do the version of Maggey Byrde from Phoenix Wright where she is in the maid uniform, but there is no way I could sew that.

    And hey, since I'm here (not that I NEED more on my cosplay list, but whatever. XD); I'll go as guy or gal, One Piece or otherwise:


    Spoiler:




    I don't have any good body shots, but I'm about 5 foot 7, pear-shaped {slimmish waist, heavy hips} and normally between 160-175 pounds. (OHGOD I can't believe I typed my WEIGHT onto the internet.)
