Now, I don't cosplay myself, nor do I ever want to, but I know of a few people who do. In fact, I've been around a few people who have been cosplaying at the time. They talk like the characters, act like the characters... It's quite a frightening experience.
Do you know her? No. She cosplays as Sora because she looks more like Sora than Kairi or Namine or any of the other girls in the series(about 5' 5" or so, dark brown hair, blue eyes, but not nearly as thin as most of the girls--she's not fat, but she's not really thin, either) and she really likes Sora. Same reason my other friend does FMA's Ed even though she's a girl, she likes Ed that much. They both look pretty good, and I've seen many an amazing cosplay where the character is supposed to be a guy but the cosplayer is a girl and vice versa. I wouldn't do it(but I don't have the right build to pull off a guy anyway) but why should it matter, it's just having fun.
