Cosplay or Crossplay?

Hey~ Guess what? I am going to take part in a cosplay event under Animation Appreciation Club at my uni for co-curricular activity. Well it's my first time to cosplay and I'm still wondering which character suits me best. I have two characters in mind now, Tifa Lockhart (FF7: Advent Children) and Shikamaru Nara (Naruto). Here are some attached pictures of them. :)

-----------------Tifa in Advent Children----------------

--------------------Tifa cosplayers-------------------


---------------Shikamaru in Naruto--------------

-----------------Shikamaru cosplayers----------------

So, what do you think of these two characters?

Should I cosplay(Tifa) or crossplay(Shikamaru)? Or other than these?

Actually I prefer Tifa but the cost to make her costume is kinda expensive due to the leather type of clothes material. As for Shikamaru, the costume is okay but I think the character's not as cool as Tifa perhaps. If possible I'd like to cosplay Tifa. Look cooler~ haha!

Oh, and if anyone has any experience or interest in cosplay, please share your thoughts here kay. I need your opinions people~ thanks yeah if you do so :D

eesoon: hahaha...i know i gonna wear contact lens when cosplay tifa later~ thanks ya~ xD

cold winter: alright thanks for your support~ will cosplay Tifa then xD

luporti: cosplay is the general term for costume playing, crossplay is the term cosplayers use when they cos opposite gender characters. you see, shikamaru is a male character right, so if i cosplay that then it's called crossplay. as in a more specific term. :)
