We haven't had one of these in a while and an anon asked for a new one, so here it is! I changed the template to include the rule of thumb and removed the unnecessary checkbox. I hope that's alright. If not, I'll post the original too.

As always, make sure to give suggestions in order to receive them unless you're the first poster.

If you're not a fan of the change, here's the original template.

>> No.10168840

I like your change anon. The "suggestions?" box is stupid because the whole point of the suggestions thread is... well... to get suggestions.

>> No.10168857

Thank you! I thought so too. I can't imagine why someone would even go through the trouble of filling out the sheet if they didn't want suggestions either....

>> No.10169651

I always thought it meant do you want suggestions of characters you haven't already considered under 'cosplay ideas' (which some people may not want if they haven't watched the source material or aren't a fan...)

>> No.10169845

Whats the names/origins space supposed to do?

>> No.10169848

The original point was to help people choose between 5-6 cosplays they wanted to do, not for people who had no clue what they want to do.
It's pretty weird to want to cosplay but not have a single character in mind

The names and origins for the characters under cosplay ideas. Here’s an example.

>> No.10169858

I see. Thanks. This shit is hard with BD lol. Might post soon but I doubt theres any character I can go for. I want to stand out from the other cosplays. Limited funds and time though.

>> No.10169945

It's quite the opposite. People who want to get started in the hobby or are trying to decide their next costume often have many characters that they could potentially cosplay but are unsure which would be within their realm of possibility. These threads are very much centered towards helping the poster pick a costume out of their given ideas, but also to suggest characters that they may not thought of before. In the comments area, people list their preferences, skill level, and etc to focus the suggestions they might receive. If someone didn't want suggestions beyond what they gave, they could easily say so. Additionally, it's a requirement to post characters you might want to do, so no one hops in this thread without a clue.

>> No.10169956

Sorry to hear that. BD is super hard to deal with.

Some tips for standing out:
>avoid fotm because you’ll get lost among all the other fotm cosplays and chances are that someone cuter/more popular than you will also cosplay the same character
>add some kind of unique element to your cosplay such as extra embellishments or by using an uncommon fabric, etc. It’ll give your cosplay a little extra oomph and make it more memorable.
>give people something to remember you by. For example, I always think of Uberscosplay when I think of Gundam cosplayers because what he makes makes him stand out.

Wtf did you not see this lmao >>10169856. This is how to correctly fill out the form.

>> No.10174333

Next time, put pictures of the characters you want to get opinions for under cosplay ideas and put their name and origins (in numerical order) under the labeled space. I see where your logic went with that though.

Truthfully, cosplaying a romantic couple with your mother is a bit strange to me. I think it'd be interesting if you were young Sophie (either in the blue dress and short hair or her look at the beginning) and your mother could be old Sophie. That'd be my first choice for you and Chie would be the second. Going with the Ghibli theme, you could do Ponyo and her mother. As for the Sailor Scout question, I don't necessarily see a specific character for you. Maybe Jupiter or Pluto?

Aside from your suggestions, I could see: Princess Peach or Haru from Persona 5

>> No.10174366

Sorry, not very clear.
Yes, if you have the means, you could easily cut out a section of metal, then grind it until it has that kind of blade-like effect, then use a brush/bucket with the correct chemicals to stain the metal the right colour, and then buff one side to give it more shine.
Failing that, because I doubt every cosplayer is an experienced metallurgist, I'd simply make something similar out of more manageable materials, craft foam maybe, or wood possibly, and then paint it to match up with the metal colours, then gloss for the shine.

Entry level cosplay here. Saw the "big guy recommend" thread that linked to this thread. Looking for advice for outfits I can slap together with minor tailoring or the odd amazon purchase. I already have an outfit for fanime this weekend but I would like to start going to more cons to let my gull gf wear her coords more often now that we're starting to make our own money

>I would like to start going to more cons to let my gull gf wear her coords more often
That's charming.

In terms of what you're looking for, I think either Crocket or Tarma would be within your means of alteration. Dedede would require more work for a good looking costume, but if you're interested in doing that work then yeah, it would suit you. Out of your three picks, I'd shoot for Crocket. There are far too many other suggestions to narrow down from, but in general: suits, high school uniforms, and casual wear are the easiest to alter or buy premade from amazon.

>> No.10175226

You have to give recommendations to receive some, my dude.

>> No.10175229

You filled out your template in such a cute way, anon. You would honestly look good as any of these characters, but I think I'd choose Athena then Rin. Or I'd choose: Nico from Kiznaiver, the mc or Fran Chou Chou from Zombieland Saga, Chika from Kaguya-Sama, or Tohru from Maid Dragon.

Elizabeth bioshock particularly the femme fatal version would look really cute on you.
Madoka god or chii from Chobits you'd look adorable in frilly dresses
Wario it'd be a way fun costume to wear to a con loads of character but simple. You're intimidatingly tall too so doing Jason from texas chainsaw massacre would also be a treat.

woah, you look exactly like a guy I know at my uni. he's like 5'6, but otherwise its uncanny. I really like the idea of you cosplaying the heavy, it would be simple enough to do for a first cosplay. you'd probably have to shave your head though...

Aside from that I feel like you were made for Tharja. Faye is a second runner up though, you'd look good as her as well. Also seconding Nana O. Or... Motoko Kusanagi from Ghost in the Shell, Ryuko Matoi from KLK, Akane from Psycho Pass, Seras Victoria from Hellsing,

wow your Bayonetta is great! you would do a perfect Faye or Tharja!

the characters you have chosen are great for you. a good pike would be Roxanne from pokemon she has a cute dress and look.

Hugo from Street Fighter and Fezzik from Princess Bride
Soma Cruz from Castlevania. He's a boy but very feminine and kinda reminds me of 9s.
Def do Char and Wesker. I'd love to see you try Krauser form RE4 though. For more vidya villains, Volgin from MGS3

You'd be really cute as Zelda, I'm thinking BotW Zelda or A Link Between Worlds
I could see you as Yennefer from the Witcher 3
You'd look great as a lot of Kingdom Hearts characters, Sora/Roxas/Ven or Kairi/Naminé/Xion
Definitely Wesker, in the middle of the top row you also remind me of Edmure Tully a bit

you would be an amazing joseph joestar, relatively easy outfit + i think you have the features for him

lupin, sanji, or spike from cowboy bebop;; you're tall so a suit would fit you well
