Cosplay Ideas for Petites

I’ve been cosplaying for about 4 years now, and finding the perfect cosplay as a petite woman is challenging. I’m not talking about size of the costume, but finding a character that suits my height (4’10), facial feature, and body size can be difficult. I recently cosplayed as Sakura Kimonoto’s best friend, Tomoyo Daidouji, from Cardcaptor Sakura. You can check out that blog post here. When I attend conventions, I really try to perfect my cosplay by height. If I can’t find an anime I like with a short character, I usually try to cosplay as characters under the height of 5’2″.

“Cosplay is the practice of dressing up as a character from a movie, book, or video game, especially one from the Japanese genres of manga and anime.”

Titan Con 2017 Cosplay: Tomoyo Daidouji

Cosplaying and attending anime conventions is one of my favorite hobbies. I love being able to dress up as my favorite character and take pictures of other cosplayers. Since 2013, I have always cosplay as Sakura Kimonoto from Cardcaptor Sakura. For Titan Con, I decided to go as Sakura’s best friend, Tomoyo Daidouji. Since this was a last minute decision to attend, I decided to go for something simple.

Tomoyo is an elementary school girl in the anime, so my height at 4’10 and my baby face worked out for this school girl cosplay. Here are a few photos from Titan Con 2017.
