Don't tell me what to do!
Seriously, though - Aside from "One-size-fits-most" costumes ( Colonial Marine, Stormtrooper*, Stargate SG-1 member etc )... For specific characters it's usually a good idea to pick a character similar enough to your own build to make the costume easier.
Obviously, male cosplayers find playing male characters easier - And vice versa.
There is, of course, the phenomenon of "Crossplaying" - Which is the main reason that any straight male at a con should begin his covert perusal of the hot cosplay chickies at the face
Otherwise one runs the risk of "Ooh! Nice legs! Mm! Nice butt! Woo! Nice bewbs! ... ARGH! BEARD!"
