We might need some specifics such as your gender (I think you're male but just to be sure), what you look like (no point telling you to go as say Vincent Valentine from FFVII if you have neither black, long hair or want to dye your own), what anime you like and so on. We can't really give suggestions if you're going to turn them down because you've never seen the anime or something.

Simple yellow headband. Easy enough to get a hold of.

Think i'd rather go as Haruhi than Haruki... but that's me =D

__

As for the OP:

Suggest some of the anime you like and we'll see what character we think you should do from those.

Also... would you cross-play? may seem an unlikely thing... but as mentioned, I'd do it. The thing is that, unless you're a big shinen manga/anime fan, there aren't many male characters that stand out.

It really depends what you like. i tend to lean towards harem anime... where the characters are made to be normal. It gives the 'oh, so if all this can happen to such a boring, crappy person... I'm well in' thing.

Anime like Full Metal Alchemist or bleach are based on unaverage guys... so they're made to stand out more.

oh... incidentally... I intend to cosplay as roy Mustang from FMA at some point. (Unfortuantely that would require cutting my hair... i suppose the crimson alchemist, or Al would do. I'd prefer to have my hair done as is supposed to be... rather than wear a wig. Not that that's really bad.) =D

I originally thought Lazy was a girl actually. Until he started getting annoying. Then I realised it was the annoyance of a guy. Anyway!

I reckon you should cosplay as someone from a shonen anime as the male characters in them are more prominent than in other anime. Maybe someone from Bleach or Naruto. Problem is that, to make an impact, you either have to go as someone relatively unknown or be original in the design of the outfit. A lot of people cosplay as someone like that so maybe something Japan-only at minute? I can't say any specific characters at minute but meh. Most of you have probably worked out I'm typing this crap to stay on topic. I'll stop now until I have any real suggestions.

Did notice you almost paraphrasing what i said xD

Hmm... there are some interesting characters in this anime I just found called 'Noein'. It's extremely weird.

Coloured contact lenses are expensive... seriously. Really depends how much you're willing to spend on it.

Also... you don't need two completely separate topics.

Shami/Nagato or someone... can we have them merged for convenience please? Done by the Cat

Computers are like humans. Even thought they can only work with combination of 1 and 0, human are combinations of "one thing" and "another thing". Even though we only know female and male, lots of possibilities are open to the world.

I'd say, from what you look like, maybe Ishida from Bleach or Mikami from Death Note. Only two I can think of who you kinda look like.

Ishida: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v208/ ... da0193.jpg

Mikami: http://img258.imageshack.us/img258/6054/mikami1py5.jpg

Hope that helps.

Unless anyone wanted to go as any of Ichigo's other classmates. Like that one obsessed with older women or something. They don't have weapons.
