Everyone has characters they like. Be it from a game, anime or other. But sometimes you look at a cosplay and think "I could really take this design further."
Sometimes its fun to take a cosplay into an original direction. Be it towards a fanart youve done or just more elaborate its fun so post your Original take ideas here along with any fanart you feel is needed for reference to your idea.

Id like to do an original take on Cloud from FF7 and do him up in a wheel chair with a special olympics number and sticker and go as "Mako Poisoned Cloud"
Also Evil Hello Kitty, Guy type Jessie from Team Rocket (MAN JESSIE!), a darker Goth version of Chaz and/or Rune from Phantasy Star 4, and an Evil version of Tenchi Masaki.

I have two characters that I'm working on designing new costumes for. The first is Dark Link, because it has a lot of potential but in the games he's never anything more elaborate than an all-black palette swap of Link. I see him turned into, basically, "goth Link" in a lot of fanart, so based on that I'm working on a design of him, with a custom sword and shield. I don't have a decent sketch of the costume yet but here are the accessories.

And shield (with color! and quick Photoshop attempt at simulating crackle glaze)

The other is Magus from Chrono Trigger, because Magus is awesome but I hate his costume. I've seen a lot of awesome fanart of him with different outfits and done several myself, but the one I plan on eventually cosplaying is pretty close to his original outfit, minus the ugly. Here's a crappy sketch!

For that one I'd also like to make a Prophet robe, which could be whipped off for a dramatic entrance, heh.

OMG!!
Chrono Trigger?! :o!!
YES!! DO IT!!
And your version compliments the original nicly.
Ya... the original's kinda an odd 'lil thing huh?
Man.. I wish there were a character I can pull off from Chrono Trigger!! XD There actually are not that many male characters in the game o_0
Playable there's Chrono, Frog, Magus and maybe Robo

I'm doing something like this with my up comming Fye costume. I'm doing his costume from chapter 117: http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b361/VampiressKat/fye-ashura.jpg

As you can see the inside coat is plain and mostly not visable so I'm going to design it and add more details to it to make it more elegant ^__^
