A male Black Rock Shooter Cosplay, good idea?

I was thinking of this a couple of days ago when I saw a few BLR cosplayers at expo ad because of this I looked into it, also watching the OAV, and thought it was pretty nifty, inspiring me to cosplay it. Now, I'm not a crossplayer and BLR is obviously female, the problem is would people be thinking I'm ruining the character by doing a male appearance of it?

should I give this a go? what are your thoughts?

Well I have thought of a lot of designs for it in my head.

I could either get a wig or cut my hair dye it, will need to see some styling of it. then there is the bikini thing, should I go topless or have a tank top or something. obviously I will have longer shorts than her hot pants (however there called) and maybe boots, boots would be good right? or just regular shoes. As for the gun/sword she has I don't think I will go that far props are a bit too advanced for a newbie like me ^_^;

I'm not familiar with BRS but genderbent versions are always interesting to see, especially if done well. Creativity and originality is nice. So go for it!

BRS was based off Miku Hatsune, y'know? And Miku's official genderbent is Mikuo Hatsune. Here's Mikuo's black rock shooter:

gives you a kind of taste. I especially like this, it exhibits her in a 'male form' well.

you don't have to do that honey, you're already working on something big : <

also thanks for the heads up on Mikuo I understand what you mean by this but I'll make some alterations all the same.

and thank you everyone for being so supportive of the idea : )

That's not entirely true, BRS isn't related to Miku in any way, they just happen to have a similar hairstyle. Miku sings the BRS song, that's is, she's not BRS in any way/BRS isn't based on her ^^;

But I'm really liking that Male/Mikuo BRS you linked, that's exactly how I imagine a male Black Rock Shooter would look like :3

Sounds like an interesting idea. You should go for it!

Also I think instead of wearing a bikini top, maybe wear a sleeveless shirt (or tank top) with the stomach exposed to show the scar she (well he in this case) has.
Totally go with the boots. I think her boots are really cool looking.

Good luck with your BRS cosplay.

I think so yeah, that's what I've read/heard at least >A<; It might be that the story was based off the song but not the characters? I'm not so sure anymore, I tried to look into it and it seems like different sites say different things? .__. But the thing I hear/read the most is that BRS isn't related to Miku in any way ^^;
