Dressing up is ok. You also have to act the part to convince the audience it's a character... if not, we're just dressing up for a tea party or two.

(fyi to any wondering, moved this over to the Polls section)

Original Character. Usually something that fits within an existing universe - like a character that might fit in The Walking Dead as a new hero or villain, maybe, or someone you created in World of Warcraft or Dragonball: Xenoverse. Not always your own creation, I've seen people cosplay as OC's created as fanart for Avatar: The Last Airbender and Batman.

Personally, I think it just expands possibilities, and it can be a lot of fun.

Forgive me if I sound like a Hedonist (Hedonist? Hedonismist?) but if they enjoy it, it dosen't matter. Cosplay is supposed to be fun anyway.

I hate it.

It's like fanfiction: Just don't do it.

OC's aren't canon so you really can't identify even what the hell you're referencing, and because it's your "own" character, chances are you're mary suing it to death (especially since your writing yourself into your character in one of the most literal fashions).

That look of someone's eyes glazing over as you go on for 15 minutes about the person you are dressed up as? yeah.. Just no.

Thanks for moving this! It was my mistake, and thank you for correcting it!

I agree, I just wish that OC's would get more support from the cosplay community.

I think this counts as "words of wisdom" I agree~

Meh, don't care. Sounds creative, and one can even claim originality , within canon universe.

I cosplay as me every day as I am an original character.
I think I'd get freaked out if someone else cosplayed as me though.
