Character Name: "M" for Menne
Series: Death Note
Background Story: Menne was an average girl, until the day that L. Lawliet died, and he just would not give up the Kira case. He would not let Kira get away so easily, so L took the body of a 16 year old girl to continue on the crime case. L has taken her name, and as an alias he calls himself(well, now herself) "M." After a month of the new ownership, many of L's habbits and traits have passed on.

OK, Introduce original cosplay characters = Fine! Great! Let's see people's creativity! :D
However, costume critiques should be confined to the critique forum, and to people who actually WANT a critique.
If you suggest that anyone who posts in this thread is setting themselves up for critique as well, you will lose those potential posters who simply want to show off their designs, but do not wish to be critiqued at this time (perhaps because their design is a work-in-progress, etc.)

Series: Star Wars
She was a Jedi when she was young, and left when she killed her master, but later retrained her skills during the Galactic Civil War.
Links to any Pictures:
That would technically qualify as crossplay, but to be honest: That would never be pulled off. It would require advanced makeup prosthetics they use for movies, and there's no way someone who's 5'11" could pull of being 4'11".
Although I guess when it comes to female aliens with drastically different facial structure it wouldn't really matter who would play them, although I'm already too large to ever make that work.

Sure, why not, I'll bite.
Character Name: Etriel Hadoriel A'Sum Borocrist tel Celeblas (commonly called Hadoriel Celeblas)
Series: D&D - Forgotten Realms
Species: wood elf
Background Story: Born as the daughter and only child of the lord of the Celeblas clan in Deepingdale, it was always expected that she would be raised a proper lady and be married off to whomever her father felt was the best quessir to lead the clan after he passed. But Hadoriel proved to be a restless child, more interested in the shine and hum of bladed weapons than in the shine and hum of her mother's clerical spells. As a matter of fact, Hadoriel's few ventures into the magical arts, forced upon her by her parents, turned out to be complete disasters. She focused her book learning on the art of the woodlands and snuck out of the houses to put it into practice whenever she could.
However, it was one day decided by her father, Lord Borocrist, that she would be wed to her eleventh cousin Angrenir, a clansman with a rather dubiously drow-polluted bloodline. Angrenir, it turned out, had his own agenda and was planning to have Borocrist suffer an "accident" after his marraige to Hadoriel. Hadoriel found out about the plot and tried to tell several people, but was forced to flee when no one would take her seriously. Without the wedding to the bloodline of the lords of clan Celeblas, Angrenir's plan was foiled.
Hadoriel fled west, to the Sword Coast, and there met the other individuals who would, through a series of interesting events, come to be known as the adventuring party called the Company of the Combustible Commode. Of late, songs have been sung of their exploits and every time she hears them Hadoriel always laments "by the Forest Queen, my father is going to hear that."
When further plots against her clan, and indeed against all of the Elven People, were uncovered by the company, they set out for Hadoriel's home in the Dalelands. Though despondent at the deaths that have recently occurred in the company and frought with self-doubt and confusion, Hadoriel is leading the company there as fast as she can to thwart the evil plot.
Along with the Dwarf, Ghan Ironaxe whom she has named Elf-Friend, Hadoriel has taken on the role of a front-line fighter in the company. Her style is based on evasion and speed rather than on brute force. Though she has been known to use bow and arrow on occasion, her main weapon is the duom, an unusual type of spear of traditional use in her family.
Links to any Pictures:
Album of pictures of the original costume (http://images.cosplay.com/gallery.php?cat=74955&member=33959) - This is how Hadoriel appeared when I first created her almost four years ago (yes, the campaign has been going a while). Her appearance is somewhat updated now. There are also a few pictures of her in more formal attire. It's happened a couple times in the campaign, but it's not too common so far.
Original artwork (http://berzerkerprime.armlessbear.com/RPG/CotCC/Hadoriel.jpg) - this is the original picture I did of the character in her ranger garb and with her original duom.
Updated Artwork (http://berzerkerprime.armlessbear.com/RPG/CotCC/HadorielCharging.jpg) - this is how she currently appears. I haven't had the chance to do this outfit yet, nor make the new duom. It's on my list. And here (http://berzerkerprime.armlessbear.com/RPG/CotCC/HadorielForestwarden.jpg) is a less kinetic version of the same.

Name: Winter / Yonaka Vicious
Age:22 / 22
Gender: Male / Female
Species: Gaian shard / Human
Okay, a lot of the stuff up top probably doesn't make sense yet so I'll explain. The stuff on the left side of the / is the main character of a novel I'm writing. He was a former J-rock artist when he was 'killed' in an accident. In reality he was supposed to be dead but ended up being revived by an international organization that keeps an eye on the paranormal and drafted as a monster assassin or something along those lines.
The stuff on the right of the / are my stats with my pen name. Seeing as he was a former J-rocker and all I wanted to get into his head a little bit so I started writing and composing songs and also making the costumes for them. Once I get my music mixer thing up I'll try to actually put it all together. (who knows when that'll be, jeez) That and his songs actually appear in the book and I needed to have viable lyrics and well....when you make lyrics the music comes next.
So yeah, its like a combination Original Character / Alter ego.
No guarantees on getting pics up anytime soon. I'm so horrible at trying to get pictures up, that and I still have too many exposures left on my camera.

Kya, what a wonderful thread idea! I love seeing people's characters. =3 Here goes:
Character Name: Gabriel
Series: Original novel-in-progress. Working title is Third Fall.
Age: Uh. Very, very old. Even if she doesn't look it.
Background Story: This is going to be lengthy. ^^; Gabriel is one of the seven Archangels that work as a semi-ruling party in Heaven. She was close friends with two of the other Archangels, Michael and Raphael, until happenings during the war with Lucifer. God (the male half of the Deity) went into mourning at the loss of His son, Lucifer, and shut himself away. Michael became angry, and began to deteriorate from his former self.
During a trial involving a massacre by an angel named Armisael (to whom Raphael was a surrogate father), Michael attacked Gabriel, leaving a large burn mark in the shape of a cross on her chest. This occurance shattered any relationship that the three still had.
Since then, Michael has been working against Raphael and Gabriel to gain control of Heaven. Gabriel has had to watch her two best friends (who were lovers) fall apart and change, and has seen many die. Much more of a warrior than Raphael, the healer, she has vowed to stop at nothing to make things right. She has a firey temper, but has become increasingly melancholy.
I'd love to make the armor that she wears in the war with Luci. I stuck with the traditional lily association, and her armor is body-fitting and silver, with thin lily decal lacing around it. And her spear is shaped like a lily. And she has seven huge, sapphire wings.... ^^; (To boot, she's got a Middle-eastern skin tone, eyes to match her wings, and wild, light brown hair. I love her so much.)

Ohh, This s the prefect opportunity for Zach! I haven't started making the costume yet, but He'll be started around Christmas all going well
Character Name: Zachory Jacob Flint
Series: Original. Novel-In-Progress, Life's Little Games
Age: Between 17 and 19.

Background Story: Zach was a budding artist. His artwork through-out his life was amazing. But his reading and writing lacked severely. His mother, Charlotte, brought him out of mainstream schooling at 8, and taught him at home. His mother passed away when he was 14. But not before telling Zach that he had to survive. He carried the Blood of the Dark Spirits in his veins. They would protect him. Zach has lived in confusion since then. But it was true, his body had never been scratched by any event other than himself being clumsy. Other than his younger sister, but he guessed that was because she had the same blood as he did. But His mother had refused to speak of Lianna until mentioning her on her death bed. Lianna was fostered, but Zach had checked on her now and again, and yet she never knew who he was. He see her on the street, and she'd give him weird looks.
It was when he was about 15 he realized partially what his mother meant. His arm slowly turned black like shadows, and he found he had enhanced strength with the arm. And, slowly but surely, he found how to to the same to other parts of his body, but they could turn back. So now he lives on his own in an apartment, with a cat that had just showed up one day and refused to leave, who he named Oreo.
