What's cool to you? Do that. If you can't do it, figure out why not. Do you lack knowledge about it? Do research. Do you lack skill? Study and practice your fundamentals, and apply them. "Cool" and "hot" are subjective, so only you can decide what you think is cool, and then hope that there are people out there who agree with you.
