I've actually seen people do drawings where they take a pokemon or whatever and make a person wearing a thematic outfit. Sometimes they actually look quite nice. For cosplay, sometimes it's a nice middle ground. You don't have to go full blown character/mascot mode and it gives you a bit more creative freedom. I think the changes you're going to make will be fine. You could jazz it up a bit more (the accessories are nice), but it's not necessary. Cons are for having fun and embracing your inner fan-person. Unless you're entering a costume contest I think you'll be fine.
Oh, nah. No contest. >.> People go all out. I'd lose for suresies.
I don't have many accessories to add.. Tried making the tail, but it just flopped around. So.. mama and I gave up. v.v; -twiddles thumbs.-
Thank you. n.n
n.n Good idea.
We tried that, plus a belt to tie it to.
I'd bump into people anyways.
I hear this con in particular is huuuuge for this state.
No one would look for a tail anyways. >:D It's me. My headband will get the stares.
