Have a big friend who wanted to cosplay problem is he's fat!

Besides Chouji(Naruto), Yajirobi, Android 19, Majinbuu, Ox Satan(Dragonball), Coach Anzai(Slam Dunk) is there any character you knew for a plump cosplayer Ü

Uh, how fat?
There's Dr. Tokita from Paprika,
Yutaka Takenouchi from Cromartie High School,
Tetsugya form Giant Robo is a big guy but not necessarily a fat guy, but he also has a nice distinctive costume good for cosplaying, Rush from Oban Star Racers is also similar (yeah no pics, you'd have to watch part of the episode)

Any of these prove useful?

Batuo from Ghost in the Shell could be a possibility. He is fairly heavy set.

Don't let the picture fool you. (Bad picture choice.) He becomes extremely obese in the series.

Lewis from Blood+ is pretty solid.
So is the title character from Porco Rosso, if your friend doesn't mind wearing a pig mask.
Dragon Ball actually has a bunch of supporting characters that fit, including most memorably Mr. Popo.
Rurouni Kenshin has [rul=http://myanimelist.net/character/19499/Iwanbou]Iwanbo[/url] as well as some sumo wrestlers (apparently ep 13).

Mitsunori Kugayama from Genshiken. He's an Otaku himself, so I guess he wouldn't be too hard to cosplay.

Isn't the idea of cosplay more to have fun than to create a perfectly accurate rendition of characters? Couldn't he just go as anyone he likes? :D

And missing the oportunity of doing something a thin person can never pull out?

Really people, there are characters for everyone, why not doing those that match you perfectly?

Well theres a good end and a bad end to doing whatever the hell you want to. Also, it depends on what kind of reaction you're aiming for, you want to do something that will just straight up make people laugh? Or are you going hardcore serious and hope no one will laugh? It's just not going to be healthy for someone to do one thing and get a complete opposite reaction (serious but get laughed at or being funny but people are scared etc)

good examples:


bad examples:


Long story short do whatever the hell you want but beware of the consequences of cosplaying in general.

yup! that's true but we are somewhat a character-wise cosplayer that's why we choose the character well, so people will easy distinguish us! and also to avoid teasing by other people especially for those fans who saw their their fav. character cosplayed like that!
