If I do an original character, I go up the nines with fanciness since I can be as creative and detail-laden as I want.
Case in point, for Halloween (and started in December....);

And I got asked numerous times if I was recreating a medieval portrait, opera character, or going to some kind of special celebration/ceremony. Or just flatout stopped on the street and gawked at.
And so far, she's the only one. I have a few others planned, but all my originals are based from fantasy/sci-fi and historical costuming genres. I don't really have plans for an original anime character.
