Well, kung wala kayong maisip, take a cue from the cons that are coming
up soon. Ganito kasi yun - minsan yung mga cons, iba't iba yung themes.
You don't need to think so hard if may theme yung cosplay nila;
besides, some events organizers are pretty strict on the themes. For
example, sa Filbar's, dapat superhero yung ico-cosplay ninyo; looks
like dapat ata American superhero yun. Sa Ragnarok con sa June 19-20
naman, dapat Ragna chara/monster lang. During the Animax con last
April, you were only allowed either a Ragna chara (since Level-Up
Games, the official distributor of Philippine Ragnarok Online, was an
official sponsor for the event) or a character straight out of the
Animax stable of anim� (or, if you wanted their manga versions, pwede
rin ata but I'm not so sure).
Next, consider the budget. Normally a costume will cost AT LEAST
PhP2,000.00 these days. But if you are a veteran, or magaling kang
maghalungkat/mag-recycle ng materials, you can make like Robert Wong
(THE mecha cosplay god, IMHO ^_^) and challenge yourself to spend only
PhP1,000.00 for your costume. Consider also if the costume will be
comfortable for you and if it won't fall apart on the con event itself.
Lastly, choose a character you feel that you look/act like. I
personally go for sexy taray blonde characters, even if I don't look
it, because some of my friends - all cosplay fans - told me that I act
like a blonde, either bitchy or ditzy. ^_^ Not that it's such a good
thing though. v^V^v
Ganun lang! Good luck and God bless! Hope to see you in the next cons!
