Dear CGL, I have a few questions to ask you. Recently, a good friend who is a cosplay maker has offered to make me a cosplay of a character of choice since she knows my interests. However, the thing stopping me is this- I'm a heavily modified individual. I have 24 piercings, 10 on my face alone(and of those 4 can't ever be removed, not even for a day) I also recently got subdermal work done on my collarbones that's very obvious, and some very visible leg tattoos. I feel like I can't cosplay most of the people I'd want to because of this. :/ What does cgl think? (I am a lady fyi, but I would gladly crossplay)
Would you care if someone had a ton of piercings cosplaying a non-pierced character? what about tattoos? someone with implants?
Do you guys know of any heavily pierced/tattooed characters?

I'm thinking about doing a cosplay. The catch, however, is that I've never cosplayed anything in my life. To make things worse, I don't watch anime or read manga. I'm not much of a gamer anymore, either, nor am I keen on any sci-fi movies or TV shows.
I am, however, a pretty big Hearn-weeaboo. I've been enamored by this print by Yoshitoshi for some time and am thinking about making a replica of the armor, partly for display but also to wear as a costume.
My question for /cgl/ is: Would it be too weird to "cosplay" (if you can call it that) a somewhat obscure piece of art?
I'm not too concerned about making the armor. There are many resources available for those who know where to look and I know how to get in touch with people who professionally restore antique armor. Also, there's this for anyone interested in making armor for a character they wish to cosplay: http://www.sengokudaimyo.com/katchu/katchu.html
and a video made by someone who followed those directions: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5N3tNlgKyDs

Hey, /cgl/! cosplay suggestions for a somewhat short, skinny, flat chested female, please?
can do simple to moderately detailed costume, but nothing too elaborate. best if not a moe character, because apparently I look like I hate everything around me
>not sure about weight, but 34-37kg
>sort of athletic build
>sort of hateful-looking face
