Cosplaying ignored characters

Who are the most ignored characters in your cosplay list?

I guess mine is Bello from Jelly Jamm

How do you classify an "ignored" character?
To me, this would only suit characters, which originate from a damn popular source, but aren't cosplayed at all. Cosplaying a character from a not well-known source is not cosplaying an ignored character, because most people will not even have a clue what the source is.

And cosplaying something old and/or unpopular is not unusual.

I have a Nathanos Blightcaller cosplay in production. I consider that a pretty ignored character from a popular series, both in cosplay and in game.

I cosplay Dodo Chaplet from Doctor Who. A very popular show, a character with a very cute outfit- but a companion who appeared in 17 episodes back in 1967, several of which are missing. So, not very recognizable.
I find the trick is to MAKE yourself recognizable- staying in character, interacting with other cosplayers, asking all the Eleventh Doctor cosplayers if they've had a haircut or something, they look different somehow...

I am doing one as we speak. Hero's Shade from Zelda: Twilight Princess. I have only seen 3 people ever do him.

I agree with Syon, I'm a little confused, but I guess based on the idea that an "ignored" character is one from a popular series that no one seems to cosplay, my ignored character would be Bertholdt from Attack on Titan! I feel like hardly anyone cosplays him, even though he's my all time favorite.

Connie wins the "no one cosplays him" award for sure.

Well, I only have 2 canditates out of my mindblowing list of 4 characters.

Natsuru Senou from Kämpfer is easy to recognize as a cosplay, but barely anyone knows the anime it seems.

And the other one is the Char B1 tank cosplay, which can be only considered exotic since it doesnt even count as a character, more like cosplaying a very big prop, but its something that is not done very often either. Still, most people recognize the source (Girls und Panzer, or -insert generic tank game here- depending on the paintjob), its just if they had to list cosplayable characters from that show nobody would think of listing the tanks.

I don't really cosplay from super popular series... but Linda from Deathnote was one. Probably because she only appeared in ONE panel. Another would be timeskip Morgiana. Surprisingly, no one outside of the magi photoshoot knew who I was. 0_o The magi anime had already done the timekskip by that point too so it couldn't have been that.

I have to say cosplaying Feena Fam Earthlight from 'Brighter Than The Dawning Blue' at Katsucon, nobody recognised the character at all, which was a shame!

I loved Rico, how could anyone forget her? People might not recognize her by sight though. Might just be confused for an OC or just wearing the uniform for giggles.

If I understand this topic correctly, my "ignored character from a popular series" is my Cybeast Gregar Armor from Megaman Battle Network 6. Megaman is quite popular to cosplay from, but its usually the original Megaman or Megaman X that is cosplayed.

From what I understand, i am the 3rd person in the United States who has cosplayed this armor version. While many people don't recognize the armor, everyone does recognize that it is from the Megaman series. Because of its complex design, this cosplay is very popular at conventions and hardly "ignored". So I'm interpreting in this thread you want us to post characters that are not cosplayed often.
