I'm planning my fist cosplay of an OC. I am very excited to be able to do this, though I'm not sure how to do a lot of it, so it may be a while before it's started.

1- Inspiration.
My OCs spawn from RPGs more often than not. The character I'm going to cosplay is an OC from a Pokemon RPg I was a part of for a long time. She's a Torchic Pokemorph (see: Gijinka) and her hair will be incredibly complicated, but I'm still very excited.

I had several characters on the RPG, with 3 that I used very often. They are very close to my heart. <3 All of my OCs that I give backstories and developed prsonalities have a special place in my heart. XD

2- Backstory
Yes. Every character I imagine has a very detailed backstory. Some are more intricate than others, but they all have a story. My most complicated character is probably... any character in the "Sato" family. They are a family of characters I thought u a few years ago. It's hard to explain so I won't go into detail, but to make all of their backstories intertwine and make sense, I spent months writing up timelines, giving specific dates for certain events in their life so everything has a chronological order, and so on. Lots of detail. XD

3- Why?
Because it's fun. I don't "have" to do any of this by any stretch of the word. I do it because it brings me a special kind of joy to see my characters come to life with all the detail I get them. I want to cosplay more of my OCs as I get more money to fundmy cosplaying habits.
