This kind of cosplay can honestly go two ways...
1. The awesomesauce way. Gorgeous, creative, visually interesting costumes that make you wish you'd thought of it first.
2. The... not-so-awesomesauce way. Usually looks like you raided your closet, shortened everything, and possibly threw on a Party City wig. Or, it looks like you cosplayed a male character but were too lazy to bind.
Either way, cosplay is about having fun, though.
I'm just talking in terms of "am I going to walk up and ask for your picture?"
