Hey There fellow cosplayers :D

I am fairly new to cosplay (I have known about it for quite awhile but just started cosplaying. I am working on 3 cosplays).

The reason for this thread is that I wanted your opinion on something that I plan on doing.
I am a HUGE Naruto fan and have an OC (Original Character) and am thinking of making a cosplay of her. Here is a link to her as a Chuunin (Also what she looks like in Shippuden):


I am going to scan in the designs of her 3 other outfits (I have designed them from when she is 8 to when she is 16)

(For those of you interested in this character, I am currently working on her story from her point of view. and she didn't always have fox ears and tail)

Soooo, let me know what you think :angel:

I'll be honest. Because the character in the picture is kemonomimi(has ears and a tail) people will just think you're a girl wearing fox ears, a tail, and a naruto vest/headband. Because there are no other defining traits for the character other than that.

If you really want to, go for it. Will there be a huge response? maybe not.

Agreed, but I would still do it, especially if you are selling her work at the con

oh yeah, I agree. still do it, It's GREAT exposure for it, and It's always fun to bring to life one of your own things :)

I'm currently working on bringing to life one of my OC's for a webcomic that is still in the works.

Well, I am not really looking for a HUGE response. My friend and I (we are possibly attending Cos and Effect) thought it would be fun to Cosplay our OCs on the second day (or whatever day isn't a cosplay contest) We just thought it would be a fun idea ^_^

yeah...you got the naruto headband there. It's obvious you're trying to be a Naruto, but not.
People are not the friendliest when they find these things in the halls.
I think you should change a few things and go more original than using the series name and all the unique items that the SERIES has. Cause otherwise, yeah, if you are looking more to experiment than for attention, you gotta be ready for it....you may take a few jokes.
Does it NEED to be naruto? I assume it has to be a fox, god knows foxes are a must! ^^
I wouldn't point this out and be blunt if I didn't think it would help.
