Good Archer cosplays are difficult, it would seem.
On the odd occasion I've seen a good costume and pose, the person's facial expression and general appearance have completely broke the illusion.
Anyway, having no male cosplayer friends may mostly* excuse you from doing Archer, but there are plenty of interesting female cosplays from the Fate universe to be attempted. While I'm sure there are people here who would not complain at some Stay/Night Rider cosplays, I've seen a dozen good ones already. I've seen far fewer good Irisviels, so I'd be interested in seeing that.
*There are plenty of good crossdressing cosplayers out there, and genderswapped characters can be very interesting if done well, alternatively.
Well the problem was that from all of my friends I was the only one who actually wached whole Fate/Stay Night or even play the VN. We work with what we have. Also it was meant as easy relaxing cosplay since we have other bigger plans this year. I hoped you'd like it... but oh well.
But honestly one day I would like to attempt Archer Illya. I might be like two times higher than she should be, but female+archer? Totally must try that that one.
