This is gift art and a collaboration at the same time. My wife, Shiloh, illustrated me wearing the armor from my original character, Starglider, for my birthday. It was so awesome and I loved it! I took upon myself to color the drawing and use it as a profile for a time. Even to this day, it would blow me away if I had the opportunity to wear Starglider's suit in real life. Is it cosplay if you dress as your own original character?
