So I have this boy that I have created.
see picture in link...

He is my original character along with another boy I did with short hair and bat wings. He doesn't look like another character from a real anime does he?...

Is he to plain to cosplay as? or would it be fine for me to go as him.

If you want to do it, then go for it. :bigtu: It's more important that you like the character and would like to bring it to life, no?

I've decided to make him red and black. the majority will be black.

The bottom half of the sleeve will be red and the rest of the shirt will be black. witha red heart of course. there will be red tips in his hair...and MAYBE red feathers on the ends of his wings...but I dont know about that yet.

ooo I like! I may go as a original character myself.

I also like your character. It's very interesting.

My general opinion on original characters is that you should cosplay them if your design is not bland. If it was bland then your oc would be something fun to dress as but not much of a cosplayseeing as how your dressing as more an ideal than a design.
I think however any cosplay character you create that you took time to design something nice for is worth making for yourself.
Maybe its just me but Id feel awkward doing say an OC that was nearly t-shirt and jeans simple even If I wrote them a terrific character no one would care about it. But your design is quite nice and I think will go over quite well with even a few "wow you designed this character? what are they like?" comments.

That you shaowebb ^___^
I'm glad my character isn't to bland.
If I had made him like a normal boy with no wings and all the cool stuff...I wouldn't be going as him. If I did that it would be like I'm not cosplay at all and I'm just there in normal clothes.
