- Is it to sexify (new word, I know) a character?
- Is it to pay tribute to a character?
- Neither? If so, what is the reason?

To pay tribute to the character, to have fun making the costume and dressing up. I love getting to dress up as some of my favorite characters. I've never thought of it as "sexifying" the character... some characters are made to look sexy to begin with, so maybe that's what you (and other men) assume women are trying to do when they cosplay. Cosplaying is a lot different from what people do at Halloween.2
