As long as it's still recognisable and in character, I think they can be really cute to see! I've done a few myself, but only just for casual wear/casual meet-ups and not for actual cons.

Well, I'm sort of putting my own spin on my Belphagor cosplay but it's mostly different fabric types and different colored striped shirt... But mostly only my hair and crown are the same. Also the knives. I think just find those few signature things about the character and keep them. I honestly find it's a fun, creative way to portray a character ^_^ it's like, going in their head and finding their style, and then finding something they'd wear

I definitely say go for it! I've designed my own Moogle outfit for Youmacon, but it's a raver variation. I'm going to be wearing it to the rave and around the con. I still plan on attending the final fantasy photo shoot since it is an actual creature from the series.

But yes, go for it! Depending on how close you look to the character though, you may or may not get recognized as much. But still, I think it's the fun in putting your own spin on a cosplay =)

I just finished and debuted at Anime Expo my Jedi Link Mashup: http://www.cosplay.com/costume/458553/

I spent six months on this and I am very proud of it since it is the first thing I have sewn in my entire life.

Basically, you just created an AU character - which is your own variation of a character...kind of like a crossover! Like if you threw Link into a Tron themed costume, it would be an AU (Alternate Universe) character. There was a Steampunk!Star Trooper at the Emerald City convention, which is also an AU.

Original variations are always fun as long as you can still recognize the character. I have a version of Crona(Soul Eater) That I can wait to do, and thinking up another. But I love to see them and they are fun to make. ^.^

I have gone so far with my variation to not only just do a cosplay variation, but to actually do a mashup homage of the two series I combined.

I not only love, but ENCOURAGE this. I make tons of different designs on my favorite characters. I would love to cosplay some, but I make then extremely detailed to the point where I wouldn't ever be able to afford it haha

HOWEVER, .e and someone I recently met are into Panty and Stocking and will be cosplaying them soon, but I found this awesome picture someone made of stocking (can't find it anymore so no idea who made it, but I didn't see a Panty one) that looks like royalty, but sexy at the same time. She has an imperial crown so I just went ahead and caleld it Imperial!Stocking. And we are doing the same for Panty and I'll be helping my friend make the design for the future.
