View Full Version : Costumes and adjustments, is there a line?

Hey all

I'm relatively new to cosplaying, and I have a question regarding attitudes toward adjustments of costumes.

But I'm thinking of extending the costume with items I like, with additions like goggles or replacing black gloves by fingerless gloves. The style doesn't change much, it's just less accurate. Nothing is final yet, but I'm wondering what most of you think if you see adjustments or errors on costumes?

There isn't exactly set rules for what is just personal touches, what is inspired by so-and-so character, and what is completely OC, but something like just adding goggles and making gloves fingerless would probably be in the first category. (i personally think all types of cosplay is awesome no matter how skewed you make the accuracy). I think most people (with the few exceptions of those just looking to pick a fight or are just plain rude) wouldn't even notice some changes in small details. And some people might even hate the changes you make, like i plan on doing a 10th Doctor inspired lolita, which is going to have both Who-fans and lolitas giving me evil glares, but in the end if you're happy, that's all that ya need =D
