Gonna bring some over from the old thread
What are your opinions on OC cosplay? Would you do it? Have you done it? What do you say if someone asks who your character is (or confuses you for another character)? Do you have (or have you seen) any nice looking OCs you'd like to cosplay?
For the record, I'm talking about visually appealing OCs from original material, not horrible DA abominations like pic related, closet/plainclothes cosplay, or wearing a uniform from an existing title and calling it an OC (like people did with AoT).
I did a Star Wars OC, which I know people do all the time for Jedi and Sith and whatnot.
I wanted to make a spacer/fringer kinda alien dude so I could chill in the background of fanfilms and not obviously be some already established character from in Star Wars.
Meh results. All I got were Han shooting first jokes every hour on the hour because they thought I was trying to be Greedo.
DESU, OC characters only work if you're shooting for something vague like "this is my steampunk character" or "this is my meme superhero gag".
Generally, I'd consider OC cosplay to be more in line with LARP/Historical Costuming than cosplay. To me, cosplay is about showing love for a particular series or character, and if I see you and don't know who your character is, I probably won't say anything to you about your costume.
I find it pretty cringey, most times. Especially when it's like an anime or pony OC, because then it just looks like an excuse for autists to be an even more autistic alter ego of sorts. Plus, cosplay is meant for portraying a particular character and to be recognizable.
This can't be real.
Didn't see one in the catalog
How much is Cinema Doll OP in Lav going for?
I wanted to see some pictures of some bad or good Pokémon cosplays, whether they be people or actual Pokemon.
I also, since I couldn't find any advice on other sites, wanted some input on how to do the white lines on the Team Skull Grunt outfit. Paint? Sew? Do I customize on some shirt/clothing company and just buy it from there?
Any advice would be fantastic.
I'm not using a wig with my cosplay, personally. At most I'd just spray color my sideburns crudely, but I see no reason with a wig if most of my head is going to be covered with the beanie.

Has anyone ordered any pom pom earrings from ali or ebay? If so, could you link where you got yours from?
A lot of stock photos look like they're made with cheap kids craft pom poms, yet their "worn" pics of girls wearing them look like they're really nice made and a bigger size..
Does this guy still not talk?
Can we have a face character costume thread? Because what is Disney thinking with Jasmine's new face character costume?
Desn't seem to be one on the calog right now, so might as well start a new one.

Because of him, I only wore the cosplay that day and wore my second one twice instead so he wouldn't recognize me. Saw him wearing the same cosplay the next day.
Help! I'm a cosplay virgin going to Alamo Comic Con tomorrow. Someone here said cosplay isn't a big deal at acCC, but I thought it might be fun to dip my toes in the water.
I come to the experts for advice: do I say fuck it and just go in plainclothes, or do I go for a """closet cosplay""" that I can put together overnight?
I'm a 20 year old white male about 6'0" 140.
I think Ill just go in normal clothing, since there won't be much cosplay there anyway I dont want to draw any attention with a bad one
Post about your feels.
Keep it /cgl/ related. Pointless arguments get these thread deleted.

My mother (somehow!!) came across this video while searching for lolita stuff, and now she's convinced that this is what lolita is all about. Jesus, she's never going to respect my hobby again.

this is genuinely horrific
