High-heels for cosplaying guy

hello everyone
So I'm cosplaying a guy, but I will stay female. I'm making his suit, weapons, I will keep long hair, just like if this character was a female.
And my height is small, only 163cm
So I decided to look more impressive wear very high heels(12 cm), walking is not a problem btw
I just wondering if it won't look stupid? Do you wear high heels while cosplaying male character?
I never did that before and I'm aware if I'm not going to look stupid
Thanks everyone for answers!

If you're going for a "female version" anyway I don't think it's an issue ?

I agree with Kelley, if you're going for a female version I think visibly high heels are fine.

I also often find myself having height issues for cosplay as well. If I end up wearing heels or platforms when the character doesn't, I always try to cover it up somehow, with either an extra long pant leg, or a boot cover, or both.

Oh it's a very good idea to cover it somehow!
Well thanks for advices, I hope keeping gender won't ruin the fact I'm into character a lot, and I'm trying impersonate using manners, gestures or the way of acting...
