I've been OC since my first cosplay, and its been fun cause the clothes really suit me well: hide my sailor guts & enhance the overall cool-ness
The best thing about OC ing (if you are really creative) you can make almost anything into costume. If its done well, you'll got a very cool costume with minimum cost ^^
I made mine from scrap fabric & stuff i salvage from dumpster diving.
If it's look 'wow' you don't have to worry about lack of attention, the crowd will swarm you before you know it ^^
anyone else up for OC?
