Redhead Cosplay Character Ideas – 55 Of Them!

I LOVE being a redhead, and one of my favorite things about it is using my hair as a centerpiece in costumes. Cosplay as a redhead is quite easy – there are a multitude of characters primed and ready for gingerfied costuming.

How does this differ from our list of Halloween costume ideas for redheads? Cosplay (in my estimation) tends to favor source material from the geekiverse (particularly anime/manga and videogames), whereas regular costumes derive more from general knowledge.

Are You A Sassinista?

In my tenure running SassyDove.com, I’ve had the greatest experience I could ever call a “job” in my life. I can’t believe I make money on a daily basis being creative, writing about what I actually think, using the Internet, trying my favorite products, and having fun, fashionable adventures. No two days are the same. I’m incredibly blessed.

The most amazing blessing of all, though, is the community of smart, funny, likeminded chicks who frequent this site. It’s amazing how well you all represent the exact image I had in my head for Sassy Dove’s prototypical reader: the “sassinista”, if you will. Continue reading “Are You A Sassinista?” »
