Which Character Is Best for You?
Most of these Suggestions is for new coser. When you choose your roles, there are many things you should consider.
- Choose a character you feel comfortable portraying.
- Consider the costs involved in creating your cosplay.
- Better likenesses tend to get a better response.
- Remember that you will be photographed.
- Don’t try to change your body dramatically in a short period of time to fit a character.
- Assess your artistic strengths, and pick characters that play to them.
Do I Have What It Takes to Pull This Off?
People often ask this question because they’re afraid they won’t be able to play the part they really want to play.
While having some natural resemblance to the character you want to play is a great benefit, it’s not strictly necessary. If you feel comfortable playing your favorite character, you should do it.
Back to the question of similarity: If you look like the character you’re playing, you’ll be photographed more often.
If you wear glasses, find a character who wears glasses that you like, or come up with a way to make your glasses safe, like contact lenses. That’s not to say you can’t wear glasses and cosplay. I’ve been wearing glasses for years playing characters, but I still have a lot of fun as a character who doesn’t usually wear glasses. But I admit that my glasses do affect my looks.
What makes you look different? Are you very tall or very short? Do you have a particular eye color or do you like to dye your hair a strong color? These look factors can help you choose a character that you have something in common with. If you want to be photographed a lot, play someone who looks like you. I did Wilma from Scooby-Doo. If you don’t see anything obvious, ask your friends for their opinion on what you look like. Otherwise, cosplay a character who makes you happy.
Remember, when you have a character, you look like a character, I mean, if you have the confidence and really study a character’s habits, you can really pull off a fun, immersive role-playing.
Do A Cosplay You Will Be Proud Of
Please remember that photos will be taken at the event and decisions made accordingly. Ask yourself: Would my family and friends feel comfortable seeing my Captain America Costume? Inevitably, photos end up on the Internet and you have no control over them. Be prepared to do your best role playing. Try on your clothes before you wear them. For example, when using flash, the material becomes purer. A still photo will give you a truer idea of how others will see you.
Be True to Yourself
Don’t put yourself in a situation that makes you uncomfortable. If you are uncomfortable with the amount of skin your character is exposing, change the costume to suit your needs or choose another character. If you need to put on a religious dress, a wedding ring, glasses, or your medical supplies, go ahead and don’t think twice about it. Role-playing should be accessible to everyone. If you like fat Thor, be brave enough to wear fat thor costume
Ideally, you want to be comfortable enough that you don’t have to keep coming back to your room to rest and reset things. The same goes for high heels and corsets. If you’re not comfortable, you’re not spending your cheating time having fun. The accuracy of the screen is far less important than having fun.
