I usually go by three things; personality, body type, and whether I can finish it in time or not. If a character is difficult to get into the personality of, I won't do him or her because that takes away from the cosplaying experience. Body type's mostly just there to remind myself that even when I was thirteen, I couldn't pull off a thirteen-year-old...and finishing is probably the biggest consideration. I've had several cosplays scrapped because I didn't finish them in time for con.

I'll usually pick something from a series I'm really into at the moment. Back when I was in college, my freinds and I would always pick something that had 3 girls and a guy, so we could group in the same series. It was a ton of fun! They moved after they graduated, though, so now I just pick a series I really like, and pick the most feasable and fun sounding character.

I had a freind working on a FF4 costume, and I commented on how there were only two girls in the game, and they had skimpy outfits. I said "Hey, if you actually finish that costume, I'll do the old wizard dude, Tellah!" It started as a joke, but I really got into doing old age makeup and old man eyebrows and a prosthetic nose and all that.

I usually choose my characters because I feel a connection with them or admire something about them. I also try to choose age appropiate characters. I'm in my 30s and well, I just feel a little creeped out about trying to be a 13 year old.
