Go to AliEx or whatever store and buy an outfit. Sewing needs practice and experience. If you're not fulltime learning till halloween, you won't make it. It will look awful.

Anon, learning how to sew a maid dress + apron is possible in a month. Hopefully anon already has a sewing machine, but sewing by itself isn't difficult and something simple like in the picture will take 2-3 weekends at most.

Look up the Norwood scale. If you are 3 (maybe 4) or below, you can go to a doctor or dermatologist and explain the issue. Ask to take Finnestride to block testosterone from causing additional hair loss and take Regaine (Rogaine) to regrow.

I feel like facial hair is the most annoying part of trying to cross play. I didn't have any until 20 but it's thick and black so it's like impossible to get rid of completely. The only ways I've been told is to wax, electrolysis, or razor + make up. Only electrolysis is "permanent". Chemicals didn't really work when I tried and my skin looked burned. Good luck.

That's because of the clothes tho.
Take a character like felix argyle, you see him as a girl because that's how you first saw him, if you see him wearing his knight's clothes or when he's wearing rags, you notice that his shoulders are broad, he maintains a masculine frame, he's just ultra-feminine.
This happens with other characters like Astolfo too.
Crossdressing is not just wearing girl clothes, is using those clothes to make your bodyline look as feminine as possible (making your shoulders and waist look narrower and your hips wider). This not only applies irl, but in anime too. I know that most artist just draw a girl and call it a dude, but some actually try.
Having said that, always keep in mind that a skirt is easier than a dress, and that with more clothes/accesories, it's kinda easier to look feminine. Also, don't use your natural hair, it can work, but you'll be much safer with a wig.
Also, makeup.
That's about it, just find a character that you like and give it a try.

Has anyone put out a good guide on female posture that isn't some crazy nutter 60 year old Hon shit?

I've purchased two guides on posture but haven't had time to watch them. I've also got a corset but it can only be used under a few costumes.

Just my opinion but the way I see it is that women tend to have a greater S shape to the spine as they counter the extra weight of their beasts and hips.

Going as a witch. Still a work in progress. I'm not sure about the bra or the corset underneath. I get upper back fat from the corset. Bra is a 38DD. I can't tell if I should go bigger or smaller for a more realistic form.

Also, yes, I know about the veiny arm. I'm going to wax and NOT drink 100 oz of water / work out the day of the party. So, there really isn't a need to talk about that. I got that one figured out.

The crazy thing is, thats just a normal 38DD bra from target with rice/hose boobs. The kind that girls use to simulate breast implants before picking a size.

You either need to get more upper "breast" fullness to smooth the curve out or go down a cup size or 2. Have you tried the corset upside down to see if the shape works better that way? If it's supposed to be a women's one, they often have more space at the bottom for hips

>You either need to get more upper "breast" fullness to smooth the curve out

>>
>>10006621
Depends on the bra. If you have a full coverage bra, you may be able to stuff the hose more; if not, you may need something more like foam breast pads.

Corset wise - the brand doesn't really matter, it matters whether it fits you better upside down as even though it's sold as an MTF corset it's pictured on a female and looks like it may have more space in the hips than the ribs. You could also try lacing it in more of a "V" shape to avoid the back fat.

I'm testing two things right now to get a better shave.

1. moisturize the face daily between shaves. At the very least this is helping with redspots after the shave. Haven't had any since I started this.

2. I'm going to do the hot towel pre shave and I got a hot soap foam dispenser. I'm going to see if this helps any with getting a better shave.
>>
>>10008138
I'm ahead of the curve on this considering my hobby is luxury wet shaving. And not the overpriced shit quality trash from The Art Of Shaving either. I've got so many preshave oils, shave soaps (akin to hot soap foam, especially when you have a scuttle), witch hazel based aftershaves, post shave balms, post post shave moisturizers, etc. Plus only using a single blade instead of the face lawn mowers Gelette advertises these days is a better way to avoid face irritation just has a steep learning curve. It was the only way I could actually get a clean shave in the first place. My hair just grows back too fast even if I shave close. I'm actually more surprised that you guys don't bring it up more often in these threads. I do g get irritation or razor bumps anymore, and my hair actually gets cut down to non-visible status.
>>
>>10007128
The 38C sits more natural on you while the 38DD is way too perky for that amount of boob.

>>10008210
Probably because that kind of shave regime takes a lot of time. You can just do a decent shave job and cover with makeup in the time it would take to do a proper shave, but if you have the time to do both then I can see it being worth it.

Don't you have to use like darker makeups to really hide a poor shave?

I would think many here would be aiming for lighter skin tones, given the source materal. Whitch girl and B2 have light skin.
>>
>>10007887
what I do is apply a hot wet cloth to the area you plan to shave to open the pores up, then when you finish, apply a cold wet cloth to close those pores up. Having laser done though it alright as it reduces growth enough for you to notice the difference in your skin and the hair when it grows back. Make sure you have good blades too; do not overuse, you will notice the difference.

Covering it with makeup is an art in itself as you need to find the right products for you. I used to use TV production tier makeup as I have very dark hair but MAC SP15 liquid foundation is pretty good and I was putting off liquid foundation off for some time.

Is there a makeup tutorial you all would recommend? For a cutesy look. A lot of places I've gone to for hands-on assistance usually try to do a smoky or sexy western look which ended up looking terrible.

Am I fine using an electric razor? It will be a while before I can wax and I hate using chemicals.
>>
>>10016744
depending on your hair color and structure it can leave like a shadow on your skin and will stubble quite fast again.

I do not recommend using wax but sugaring. Sugaring is non chemical and will not stick to your skin, making it a little less painfull.
Ripping out your hairs however can be a bad idea if your prone to ingrown hairs. It can be horrible and long lasting.

So if its a one timer and you want to be safe and dont need 100% smooth skin just use a razor which still can lead to ingrown hairs, more over if you press too hard to get it as smooth as possible)

The size looks natural on you, I'm sure with the breast plate it will look smooth and realistic. As for the corset, you need to make it looser at the top. Are you tying it in the middle or on the top or bottom?
>>
>>10007887
Use benefit concealer, the high coverage pot is about $15, and works very well. Use a lighter shade than your skintone and apply it around your mouth area, then put on foundation over with a beauty blender.

2 questions.

1, what is the best way to stay consistent in terms of makeup? Is it just constant practice? I'm practicing whenever I'm able to, but there are times where I think my makeup looks great and other times where I just absolutely hate it, but go "fuck it".

2, I had someone in an earlier thread suggest for face contouring that I look up how drag queens do their makeup, but every one that I've seen goes way too "drag" for a lack of a better term. Is there one that really doesn't go too over the top or is better suited for cross play? Also any makeup that anyone here would suggest for face contouring or can I get away with using my current eye shadow selections for highlighting and whatnot?
>>
>>10021685
Random MUA here who's somehow stumbled across this thread, and yeah. People try and recommend lots of tips, and shortcuts, but in my experience, the only way you'll ever be able to improve your makeup is by practice.

Do you have a skincare routine? One thing I recommend a lot (and what worked for me when I was starting out) is every night, before washing my face for bed, practice loads of makeup techniques, in loads of different colours to see what suits you best, since you can immediately get rid of it afterwards without feeling bad.

As for contouring though, I basically hate every online contouring tutorial because literally like....... everyone's face is different. Yeah there are very general rules that often work, but never in the same way on everyone. You really have to get to know your own face to find how to contour best, or it can look, as you said, obvious and draggy.
If you wanted (no pressure) you could post a pic and I could give you some advice specific to you.

Also, in terms of product, nah you're good. Contour and highlight powder is just big eyeshadow, and though it's a little bit more convenient being in a big pan for a big brush, it's not necessary. You're fine just sticking with shadows

(1/4)
(gonna be sectioned into parts lol bc my comment is too long)
Oh wow, first off, you have a really cute V-shaped face!! That and the big round eyes will give you a HUGE advantage with cosplay makeup.

I'm going to go over what I see, and I'm really apologetic if I come off as critical, I think you look great and I just want to help ya be even better :) And these are *just* suggestions, def don't change something you like just because I say something different.

First off, here's what I'd do for base makeup. You don't seem to have a 5'oclock shadow in the crossplay pics so I wouldn't bother with colour correcting, unless you notice that irl. Plus you have smooth skin so go easy on the foundation. But, you do have quite deep-set eyes (same dude.. i know the struggle) and you're not offsetting that enough with the makeup. Make sure your concealer is at least a shade and a half lighter than your actual skintone, and apply like this: (http://alishabarbara.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/concealer-tips-undereye.jpg) under the eyes, and BLEND BLEND BLEND (if you want product recommendations for anything btw I can do that too, I just really like talking makeup :> ). Next, of course, always set with translucent powder.
>>
>>10022423
(2/4)
Next, contour. Ok, so I wouldn't even TOUCH the sides of your nose with any contour powder. Your nose is fairly strong from the front and you don't want to accentuate that, so don't contour the sides of your nose at all. What you may like though, is to take a smaller powder brush, and VERY lightly dust some contour powder over the bridge of your nose, to slightly push it in from front-view. Your cheekbones are pronounced, so I also wouldn't contour there, as we're trying to make your face sort of softer, and more feminine. I would definitely work around your jawline though which is kind of sharp, and instead of putting contour under the jaw (like people normally do), would put it lightly, directly on the jawline, taking it up like an inch higher toward the ear as you move to the sides of your face (if that's unclear, lemme know and I'll draw a diagram). That technique will especially look nice in pictures, or if you have a face-framing wig. Also, make sure the colour is not warm toned whatsoever; you're fairly pale and it'll look mostly like dirt on your face (I'm thinking a colour somewhat like Warm Taupe from the Modern Renaissance eyeshadow palette, if you know that one).
Next is blush! Blush is just cute so have fun with it. Where you put the brush down after picking up product will be where it's strongest, so plop that right on the apples of your cheeks, and blend up towards your cheekbones. Blending it directly *on* your cheekbones like people often do day-to-day will just angle your face more- not ideal.
Highlighter is optional but usually a fun choice :) Just make sure it's blended and subtle and it'll usually look great in cosplay!

Ok, now eyes. I really really like your eyebrows, and honestly wouldn't change anything (except maybe practicing to make sure they're both even). But the shape is really soft and cute!
In the second crossplay pic, are you wearing eyeshadow? if so, it looks nice as well!
I'm going to be totally honest though, I'm not a huge fan of your eyeliner. In the second one, it's sort of a bit too subtle for cosplay makeup and doesn't do much for you, and in the first one, it's a bit messy and unflattering. Biggest thing to remember, is that you have round eyes. When your eyeliner wing points down like that, it makes your whole eye droop down.

^ For some inspiration and good tutorials, Kleiner Pixel also has slightly downturned eyes, but does some AMAZING and super characterized cosplay makeup.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vS0smmgn1J8
^ See how in this one, she makes the wing go up before the end of her eye? That way she brings her whole eye upwards instead of down (though the bottom eyelash thing isn't super necessary for you, and takes A LOT of skill to get right).
Also, make sure to always wear false lashes!! Cosplay is all about the extremes, and I can't think of a single female cosplay where I wouldn't wear false lashes. Mascara can't even come close to the effect, especially in pictures.
Going back to eyeshadow for a second, just also want to say that’s basically must as well. Even if the character doesn’t wear eyeshadow, just running a tiny bit of whatever contour or bronzer you use on your face in the crease and outer v, even if people can’t tell you’re wearing eyeshadow, makes all the difference

I think the only thing that I have left to say is lips, but that’s very much a case to case basis. Lipstick is also kind of a necessity though, even if just a nude. I also think that overlining just a *tad* would be really really flattering on you (there are tons of tutorials online to make it look natural, just make sure you practice). A little highlighter on the centre of the lips (cupid's bow wouldn't suit you) is always a nice touch as well.

For those two characters though, the makeup looks pretty standard, other than Hilda’s 2 different coloured irises and lilac lips. And for Bad Girl, you should definitely go heavy on peach coloured blush and highlighter on the cheeks and nose, and use lip gloss. For Hilda I’d use lashes like this (https://dy6g3i6a1660s.cloudfront.net/yFxX5XnrhKgNh4bU1WKMLwR-BH4/zb_p.jpg , heavy on the outside) and for Bad Girl like this (https://www.uniqso.com/collections/makeup-accessories/products/stella-eyelashes-pointed-5117 fluttery and sectioned and round), that alone would differentiate the makeup looks a lot

And yeah, I think that’s about it! Like I said love talking about makeup, so if you have any questions, def ask. Hope this helped in some way!

Absolutely appreciate the advice and criticism. I'll also comment on specific things you mentioned.

>>10022604
On your comment for colour correcting I actually get a pronounced 5oc shadow, but I use an NYX orange lip gloss/stick in addition to a concealer to remove that blue hue. It's probably not the best method, but it's the one that's been the easiest for me. I'll look more into actual color correcting though. I would also LOVE product recommendations since what I use are a combination of mom/sister hand me downs, friend/YT recs, and ipsy monthly bags that's basically like makeup lootbox.

>>10022605
When you say contour power are you talking about something specific?

For the jaw contouring if you could draw a diagram forthat would help.

For blush I actually used to use it, but everytime I have in the past I looked more like a doll or like Raggedy Ann so I stopped, but I'll give your suggestion of blending it up instead of on a try.

>>10022609
I recently started to trim my eyebrows since someone suggested that would help me quite a bit. Before they were definitely thicker.

I was actually using eyeshadow in the 2nd pic and the eyeliner set I use (Dollywink Smokey Brown) has a bit of a schematic on how to apply it properly so for every crossplay I've been basically doing that.

I absolutely appreciate your criticism and videos for my eyeliner. I'll definitely give them a watch.

I actually do wear false lashes, but they never seem to show up in pictures. Maybe I'm not applying them correctly?
>>10022613
Oooh I LOVE those lashes! Gonna definitely pick them up!


Sorry if these comments are all over. I'm still pretty new to makeup in general.

same person as the witch earlier. Continuing to workshop the fake hips, ass and tits.

I got an electric carver (the kind used for chickens) and that is definitely the way to go with making your own hip/ass pads.

Thoughts so far. If you are going with 3 inch foam to get bigger hips, Go longer than you think you need. In my opinion, I need to go another 4 inches on the top part of the hip. And I need to put on the corset first, then 1 layer of hose, then the hip pads, then two more layers of hose. Hose should go up to the natural waist.

I have no idea what I'm going to do about the butt. Even with a bit of butt on the sides, I'm not seeing any gains on the butt. I think I need to add 2 inches to the diameter of the butt.

I'm still getting a little back fat with the corset at the top but positioning the bra strap just right smooths a lot of it out.

Other stuff, my natural hip is 23 inches in dia. This is using 3 inch thick foam and gives me 27 dia hips.

Any feedback would be appreciated. I'll keep trying stuff in the hopes of coming up with a formula that works for others.

Feedback I already know is that the pics are blurry, I need better lighting, and I need to wax before going out in public. My main focus was to just try the pad in pants. I'll dig out my real people camera and tripod for future tests.

>>10032757
Main focus should be wait and hips, to get them to the point where they're in proportion with your shoulders. The hardest part about crossplay/crossdressing, outside of getting your face looking feminine enough, is to get it so that your figure looks "in proportion" for a girls, and the biggest obstacle for that is the shoulders. And the best way to do that is to make the hips look bigger. I guess an example would be the Marisa cosplay I posted where I used a hoop crinoline to hide my hips, and poofy sleeves to hide my shoulders. Though often even a big enough jacket can be enough to make you somewhat passable if your face isn't completely hopeless.

>So, I'm kind of obsessed with the winter serafuku. What's the best way to get one?
I actually got a genuine used Japanese winter sailor fuku top on Ebay from a seller in Osaka for a reasonable price. Really well made, as it's an actual school uniform, with lining and stuff the costume versions omit (they are very expensive new). Have to do a few mods for size, but it will work and the sailor top is the hard part to get.

Add a navy pleated skirt from a domestic school uniform supplier like French Toast (western girls get big, so waist sizes in excess of 30 inches are no problem, along with length) and this makes for a real schoolgirl uniform you won't get from either a tiny stock Japanese one or a cosplay one you can tell from the pics is never quite the same as the real ones.

Hey guys! Browsed through this board a bit, and I think it's mostly guys crossplaying as girls? I'm kind of hoping for some advice though the other way round. I'm a girl who used to crossplay when I was a younger teen because I could pull off the young lanky guy look, and really had fun doing it. I've wanted to try again for years (in my mid 20s now) but it just looks like shit whenever I try. My face is very very feminine, as are my mannerisms, and I feel like I'll just look dumb. My figure also make it IMPOSSIBLE to make my body look like a dude's, it's just so obvious, as I'm quite thin and curvy. And if I do it, I want to do it right.

I know to crossplay girls, there's padding and breastplates you can buy or tutorials on how to make them, but I haven't found any good ones on girls. Anyone have any tips on making your body look more masculine? Is there padding you can buy? Or am I just kind of stuck working with what I have?
>>
>>10035359
Chest binder and padding. You want to make your body look more blocky and square. One thing most FtM crossplayers do is forget to add extra padding and account for their hips, so they end up looking dumpy and pear-shaped. You also might want to look into male contouring, which is another thing most people get wrong. And mannerisms/vocal patterns are also important to practice. My recommendation would be to try and sing along with more male songs (think Johnny Cash) and copy the speech patterns and tone. It wont be perfect but it'd at least be a decent start.
>>
>>10035082
The three basics I always tell people to go with are lashes, lips, and brows. Once you've got those down pat, then you can start adding to the face to get the look you want.

>tfw I have the perfect body for crossplay but the worst face for crossplay
