I think that would be great! I see some people who do it, and they came up with awesome characters. ^^

benihime has a good point, but imo, there's nothing wrong with doing your own character. it's all about making whatever you cosplay your own :]

Agreed. I find it difficult to believe that in a cast that size, you can not find ONE character you enjoy.

No. It is not okay. Your legs will rot off if you cosplay an original Bleach character.

I would at least limit it to standard shinigamis or hollows too, anything like a lieutenant or captain or arancar and you'll just be getting weird looks

Well you could to Arrancar just a lower not so well know Arrancar. Example would be doing one that has more mask than face, which is to say one that is not Espada level.

Also be prepared to get some flack from the so called purists out there. People in this hobby tend to forget that this is for 'fun' and not a job. So what ever you do just do it and do it well. Stand tall and ignore the haters because you are going to get them.

Just my little old $0.02 on the issue.

i was told to get ready for some sort of explanation of your character ;p i wanted to do an exorcist from d.gray man(not a main character) and was just warned the same way people are to you right now hehe. i def know how you feel, but part of me is thinking also that it might be nice to cosplay someone and someone else saying "hey nice <character name here> cosplay!" gives you a thumbs up etc..opens up a nice conversation

And maybe not haters, but also people who will try to recognize the character, because they want to show their love for the series and the work you put into a costume. So be ready for just plain puzzlement, too, if you've made an original captain/vice captain or espada level creation.
Doesn't mean you shouldn't go for it, but if you're ready for the questions, then it won't disappoint you.
The suggestion to make "a shinigami" or "an arrancar" would be successful, in the way you can make "an elf or a ranger" for LotR or "a Jedi" from SW and everyone's okay with it.
Hope it comes out nice!

Didn't say they had to, I just find it difficult to believe that they can only be satisfied creating their own character in a cast that has SOO MANY options. I'd be more understanding if this was from a series with a limited number of named and developed characters, but the cast of Bleach is GINORMOUS.
