I super wanted to cosplay this year. Not very many characters I look like. So I chose Rika Shiguma from Boku Wu Tomodachi. No one knew who I was, but that's okay. I just like being someone I'm not for a day.
I'm not familiar with that anime, but I totally understand what you mean about wanting to cosplay a character. Usually, I go in lolita, but there have been a few times when I've gone as a character and it's so fun!
