My younger sisters both LOVE anime, so I'm going with them to an anime convention! Both of them plan on cosplaying, and I love getting dressed up so I said I would too, but I have no idea what to do or who to go as. They are both going as anime characters. The only "anime" I've watched is Avatar (and I love it). I know you don't have to dress up as an anime character at these cons, but I don't know if it's like, an unwritten rule or kinda weird if you dress up as something else. I definitely don't want my sisters to be embarrassed of me. They've never been to a con either so they can't guide me.
As for costume, I'm a massive nerd and really could be anything, including gender bent. I'm a young woman in my early twenties, thin, and have vibrant red hair that I love to play up. I love strong characters. I'm pretty good at makeup and decent at hair. Any ideas would be MUCH appreciated.
Thanks everyone :)
