My new year's resolution is to try cosplaying at a big anime convention, was thinking maybe of going to Anime Expo in July. I've never been to a legit anime convention so I want my first trip to be memorable.
The only problem is...I have no clue as to who/what I should cosplay. I don't keep up with newer anime. I mean, I've watched Bleach/Naruto, etc. all those "mainstream" animes but the last full series anime I watched was...Azumanga Daioh...and I watched that as a Freshman in High School (almost 10 years ago).
Basically, I'm just asking for tips as to what I should cosplay as.
Pic related: it's me.
I'm Asian, 5'11, not fat, not ripped, somewhat inbetween, short hair with glasses.

I want to go with something funny. I remember seeing the Pokemon Men. That was pretty hilarious...or I could go as Man Faye but I don't think I give off that creepy vibe.
>tl;dr help me find a costume I can cosplay as for AX.
I have a few months to prepare but I don't wanna be too elaborate. If I find multiple and simple costumes/characters, I might be down for doing that. Maybe go as a busted up Ashe first day, Misty second day, hentai tentacle monster third day, etc.

The long and the short of this thread: What do you believe is important to be a good cosplayer/convention-going-person (behavior, attitude, philosophy, ...) and what would be considered a major faux pas at a convention?
The longer of the above short: A few friends invited me to Anime 2013 in the Netherlands, but I've never cosplayed a day in my life. With all the HOW-TO's on the internet, cobbling together an outfit should be doable in the 4 months remaining, but I'm clueless when it comes to the actual event. The goal is to surprise my friends with a costume and not making an ass of myself.
PS: I'm a /tg/, /vg/ and /ck/ frequenter and the amount of manga I read is limited, hence the image having a sore lack of anime characters. This image in no way represents what I wish to limit myself to, only what I've brainstormed so far.
PPS: Imitating a character in a manner recognizable to others is going to be a lot harder then I expected. Respect to all of you who pull it off so magnificently. Props.
