Tiger & Bunny - Origami Cyclone/Ivan Karelin
Tiger & Bunny - Bunny/Barnaby Brooks Jr.
Eureka 7 - Moondoggie
Trigun - Vash the Stampede


Just off the top of my head.

However cosplaying someone because they "fit" you is shallow, and worthless. Cosplaying someone because you love the character is what it should be about. There's no law against re-using cosplay.

If you don't watch the anime/read the manga on the characters mentioned above, my opinion of you falls. And let's be honest, everyone round here starts at 0.

You already lose a couple of points for the ALL CAPS title and desparity of this thread.

If people only cosplayed chars that 'fit' them we'd be without traps, I don't wanna live in a world with no traps haha

And yeah, re-using a cosplay you love/spent time on is fine! : D

pics would help if you really need help picking : 3

Gotta fit being a trap! Indeed, it's probably more important there than elsewhere. Even if it means you generally look a bit androgynous.

And yeah, you've got to give us a bit more to go on. Plenty of blonde characters out there, but it's no good telling you to be Izumi from Full Moon-o Sagashite if you've never heard of it. Give us some animes/games you like.

Sorry if this post seemed to get to some people D= not cool at all :(

Every character i have cosplayed as i have done so cause i love but i am always asking people who i can go as, as it allows me to check new anime's out, i mean i went as Graham specter from Baccano! this year, if it wasn't from a guy on a diffident forum telling me about him i never would have been able to fall in love with the anime.

I will be re-using a previous costume's on the second day of mcm as normal but i love to go as something new each time, its also fun for my mates as im the guy who will go all out (even if i have had to last Minuit a few now cause of uni) like the one time (and only time) i ever dyed my hair red i went as lavi from D.Gray and made a 6'4" hammer 1'6" in diameter made from a solid wooden construct (and it has been sitting in my uni room for 4 years now warding off people xD)

So yeah, im not going because of it 'Fits', if that was the case i would have gone as cloud strife ages ago lol, na i like it when there are people i can see even if its just to watch the anime or read the manga that there in.

If any one has any ideas from all of this then shoot please =D
-Elaborate props of any kind i can make with ease
-I don't ever want to die my hair again (unless white) and not keen on wigs
-Want to have fun being the character (i'm normally best at this bit)

Thank you ^_^

I dont know if you have already decided on a cosplay (Judging by the date on the last reply)
But if not then these are a few you could try! =]
(they may not all be tall, but that doesnt matter too much =])

Kisuke Uruhara from Bleach (Wields a sword or Walking stick)
Roxas from Kingdom Hearts (Wields a Keyblade)
Howl From Howls Moving Castle
Snow From Final Fantasy XIII
JD from Neo Angelique Abyss (Wields a Pair of Tonfa)
Franken Stein From Soul Eater (White/Grey hair, but could be pulled off with light blonde, and Wields Death Scythe)

The first thing that came to mind was Snow from FF XIII, simply because he seemed to fit the description you gave (6ft, blond hair). The only downside however, is that he doesn't have a massive prop considering he's a fist fighter and all....

I would have said Dino, but you mentioned him already soooo.....I dunno.

Maybe you could do:
Jin Kisaragi or Ragna from BlazBlue?
Leon from Resident Evil?
Dante from DMC? (You can tell I'm just picking at straws here since his hair isn't even blonde....^^")

I see I wasn't much help, good luck anyway. :)

You have a much more variety in choice if you didn't just go for blonde characters, but buy a wig to do other characters - then you wouldn't be so stuck on cosplaying just blonde characters or the need to dye your hair.

Don't mean to sound snarky, just makes things easier.

I think someone mentioned this above, but why not just buy a wig? Then you can be whatever character you want. Can understand why you ask people for idea's because you want to check out new anime, thats all well and good. Though personally i would choose a character who you really love regardless of what they looked like and just go for it. And the new costume thing... It's great to have a new costume but plenty of people cosplay as the same character each event, after all not exactly a cheap hobby, lol.
