Thumbs up anyone ever do their own version of an outfit for their favorite character?

I wanted to ask everyone has a,instead of doing an actual cannon outfit from a series?

I did a sort of urban version of Sheik for one of my first cosplays, because I couldn't figure out the armor. I see Vocaloid and Kuroshitsuji cosplayers doing this all the time. A lot of people do steampunk versions of characters.

It's fun to do, especially in a group.

Goodness, yes. It's a hoot & a half. I've done more than I thought, upon reviewing my group:

Ciel [Black Butler]
Soubi [Loveless]
Luigi [Super Mario]
Watanuki [xxxHOLiC]

These are tremendously fun to do, because it's a great creative outlet to use the taste of the character along with your own preferences. My group is especially fond of xxxHOLiC, and we have some ideas for more original designs in the future. I love seeing them as well - it's rewarding to see the added artistic liberties when cosplayers get more say in the designs.

All the time, I love designing outfits and coming up with new twists
Like for this past con I was maid female Makoto (Free!) and I embroidered an orca on the apron, and pinned a stuffed dolphin, shark and penguin all over me. If I had a butterfly I would have has it as well

I did a serafuku/schoolgirl version of Yuffie a while back. http://www.cosplay.com/costume/376778/
I love Yuffie but didn't want to show my midriff, was having a resurgence of my love for serafuku collars, she's right about the right age and cuteness level, and I was unemployed with little money and I had a lot of stuff to put the outfit together already.
And I've done four MLP gijinkas, but since they dont HAVE canonical human outfits (Equestria girls aside) I don't really count those.

I want to..I've got a few ideas for some but I haven't gotten around to it.

Also, Loveable-Eve and i are planning versions of Final Fantasy main heros. I don't know if I'm suppose to say what they are yet, but I already drew them up (Sent a pic to me of their cosplay, and I used that as inspiration for mine)

@Shinobi: That outfit is adorable!

Just casual clothes I put together/hardly wear from my closet with my friends when we do themed photoshoots. Haha. Not much. Just things I think the characters would wear and then take pictures of myself. xD

I really wanna' do a redesign of Elsa's ice dress, mostly cause I think her movie dress has too many design elements. XD I might do one of her concept art designs.

I'm doing that this weekend! Using a corset I already own and putting together a quick skirt out of a tee shirt for a Rarity cosplay at a local con.

Edit: I forgot to mention that the reason I'm making the skirt is because no one has any white skirts now that it's after Labor Day!

The trouble with doing this is that sometimes you end up unrecognizable, like "casual" Hetalia cosplays that are just a flag T-shirt, and then you just look lazy.
I'm currently in the design stages on Femme!Gambit, and I'm trying to keep enough details to still be recognizable- the brown trench, the armored boots, the magenta and black stripes, etc.

That's the issue I've run into as well. I'm making sure to include Rarity's ears and horn (just made them over the weekend), a tail, and I'm also going to look for a cheap white Persian cat toy so I can have my Opalescence.

I did it for Riku from Kingdom Hearts because I don't like any of his outfits. So I created a Halloween Town version.

A measuring tape is a good prop, too. That's what I'm using with my own (a purple one, even).
