YAY i'm not alone!! i'm cosplaying an OC (granted in a already created universe) at a convention next year and i'm loving the process of creating this character- it probably also helps that i love writing and this is just an extension of it... I'm thinking of having little cards on me that i can hand to people if they want to know more about my character what'cha think?

1. OC cosplay like anything, if it's done right it's great, if not then not. But hey, wearing a costume and having fun is cosplay.

2. Yeah some people might not like that you're not dressed as a famous character from an anime, but I happen to love different archetypes. I've been A pirate, A fire demon, A tree nymph, A flower fairy, and many, many variations of A gypsy. I also love historically inspired cosplay.

3. OC is a different type of challenge. You have no reference pictures to follow, but you're also not bound to try to make it look exactly like canon.

4. Lots of fun and endless possibilities. http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3084101/

Ah, I'm going to cosplay my OC next year, Keta (pronounced Co Ta). It'll be a fursuit, instead of my usual quadsuits.

Empire State Building got shelved this year due to budget reasons, but a neighbor of his got cosplayed. That costume got a great reception at Hal-Con, taking an honorable mention in the Master's category of the costume contest. Here's my One Penn Plaza costume as it appeared during the con:

I also wore the costume for Halloween in NYC, only without the headdress. I did a more human-looking personification, using a braided wig. If anyone asked, the braids were elevator cables

As for Empire State, that one might get resurrected this year- I've already got a couple of pieces made.

I was thinking of cosplaying my OC Cato because I read over the short story I had written that he was from and I remembered I made him a bad*ss. I just wish I hadn't given him such an odd looking Suit Now, but that aside, this probably will happen eventually.

I've seen some really interesting ones and I think it would be a -fantastic- way to market your online comic/story/whatever it's from. I will be doing it as soon as I've gotten my butt into gear to post the stupid thing, but that's beside the point.

I'll be cosplaying an original, already have all the fabric. I just need the other things - contacts, latex, bodypaint, wig, shoes, and feathers to make the foot wings (think Hermes, the Greek god)
I'm excited about her scarred eye but I'm not debuting her until late 2012/2013.

Thought about it. Friends have talked about a Tokyo Mew Mew fancharacter group, wherein everyone would dress as their own Mew. I thought it was a silly idea at first, but now... starting to reconsider. Maybe once I get in shape...

I cosplayed my OC Daisy for Halloween because he's famous among my friends and it was a lot of fun. But at a convention, probably no, because I really enjoy photos boots with people of the same fandom as me, and I like cosplaying recognizable charries. I might consider doing a webcomic cosplay though.

I like to buy armor, weapons, shields, and whatever strikes me as cool (I bought a coat from the movie "The Postman" at one convention) I incorporate these items into OC cosplay and have a lot of fun being someone else at a convention. My Knight Hospitaller cosplay is my favorite so far and it was really popular at Dragoncon last year.

I've cosplayed an OC before. Granted, it was a friend's OC, but I did completely because I wanted to and without her prompting. He was just too awesome a character not to do. The character himself is pretty popular among our circle of fanfictioners too, so people were all disappointed that I beat them to a cosplay of him first. XD Whatever the case, I had lots of fun cosplaying him, even though nobody knew who the hell I was. The only bad part about it was the mask. Note this kiddies: never make a toucan mask, complete with large beak, out of plaster. Your nose will thank you for it.

I'm currently planning on making an OC of mine from a short story I wrote for my creative writing class. She is such an interesting character plus I get to make a huge death scythe sort of thing for her. And the awesome thing is that I have everything to make her scythe in my house and her outfit isn't complicated at all despite how symbolic it is. ^_^

My friend PhantomHoodie and I are going to cosplay as characters from a Novel I'm writing. I'm going to be Cain, the crazy ringmaster of an Evil Circus, and she's probably either going to be Demetri, Cain's evil twin brother who takes over his brain at times, or Voltaire, Demetri's Sexy Sadistic, violin-playing assistant XD
