You can still do a general plan. Get inspired and find costumes that you would feel comfortable wearing. If you want to do 'everyday clothes' then a character from Walking Dead or Mr. Robot or some similar property would work. You can also find costumes that are comfy and not restrictive, such as Jedi uniforms, Starfleet uniforms, etc. Another possibility is to find themed clothing that is comfy for you, such as a Tardis dress.

You could also go for a character who already bears some physical resemblance to you, which makes it easier. For example, my daughter (who has blonde hair and wears glasses) is very big on *comfortable* cosplay, and we're tossing around the idea of a Kara Danvers costume for her, since she already looks the part, and would just have to wear some kind of recognizable outfit (possibly with an open front and the S t-shirt underneath). My husband (who looks a lot like Neil Patrick Harris, except that he wears glasses) decided to try out Dr. Horrible as his first 'real' cosplay because of his resemblance to the character.

Hmmm.... I think you look like Maggie Green (from TWD)... You have exactly the right facial shape and hair!

Zero, you don't always have to 'make' a costume. I am a big believe in 'closet cosplay', which is putting together off the rack items in a combination that creates a costume. That's how we did my son's Draco Malfoy costume: bought the robe and tie from the Harry Potter store, then just got a generic white shirt and black pants. Add in his physical resemblance to young Draco and voila! Instant costume! It's still his best costume, and he's had quite a few.

I'm already working on my new cosplay ideas, since I have all of the days for this year  >:D I'm still planning to do my Cersei, of course - that was SO much fun this year! I'll probably dress as her on Friday again, assuming that that's the day of the GOT panel and signing.

I'm also in the VERY beginning stages of gathering parts for this (potential spoilers for GOT fans who haven't read the books):
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I've started gathering clothing items to do Maggie from TWD as well. If my sister goes with me this year, I suggested that she dress as Carol, because she has short hair that she can chalk or something to get Carol's color...and she gives off the "mess with me, and you'll wish you hadn't" vibe  ;D

For Maggie, I'm probably going to attempt this look:

OMG, Alyssa, if you go as Maggie, we can be twins!  :D All we have to do is wear our lanyards, and we'll be super easy to spot at the con  ;)

I was Agent Carter for Halloween, so I will probably just try to improve it a little (maybe remake the blouse, I wasn't happy with the darts, and also I didn't hem the skirt well, but I think I can fix it) and wear that one day.

I've done Margaery Tyrell two years in a row now, and I want to do her again, but I always like to do the current season so I have to wait until it airs.

I'm still looking for at least one more but I'm torn between a few options.

My husband never cosplays at the Con, which is too bad, because he made a surprisingly good Daredevil at Halloween.

I've always wanted to cosplay but never followed through with it (wanted to do the exo suit thing).


but I got a 40% off email from holloweenstore.com and jumped on the Wampa costume they had. Expensive, but it looks cool and i dont have to make anything. It is kinda boring though, so im going to spice it up a bit and turn my wampa into Ku-Kak. The force-sensitive wampa slave. He wears his slave owners Crossed Rancor Claw and red circle emblems. and uses a Sith Sword as a weapon.


Trying to get the sword ready for Dec 17th. Not sure this is the best costume for the middle of summer though...

And I have a Carol costume, so we can be double Maggie + Carol! ;)

Semigeek girl, at NYCC Natalie Dormer said that her clothes for this season were rather horrible (meaning sacks and such) because she is in prison. I don't think waiting for this season will help with a Marjorie costume... ;)

Go Jopair! I would love to see your wampa costume!
