If the character you are cosplaying is a boy but you are also a boy but he's kind of trappy/girl like does that still count as crossplay?

ZR or pantyhose?

What do you crossplay guys prefer and why?

Pantyhose, you don't have to shave, so I take it as the lazy option, but then again pantyhose is perfect for autumn/winter cosplays.

I would prefer to wear the 20 den one, for looks and the smooth feeling on the leg, but shaving can be so tedious. I'm glad I only shave for cosplays.

Some advice from male anon here. Don't use powder or whatever on your sensitive spots. Shave in the shower with female razor blades. We call it 'Gilette Venus' in Europe. Believe me.. that's the magic you need.

Give me some more tips on shaving.

I never shaved my privates and for the few blonde hairs in my face an electrical razor is enough. So all these years I've never shaved with blades. And the thought alone of letting blades near anything between my legs lets me shiver in fear.
But down there ... oh boy. Let's try not talk about details here.
>>
>>9574532
Anon you replied to. I'm glad you asked cause I have a big nose as well and actually i'm very proud of my contour skills, so i'll try to explain. Basically you need to do the lines on top of the nose, not on the sides. Your mistake is using your natural nose shape, so you enhance it instead of stretching it. Imagine that you are drawing a new nose. When you have those two lines on top you have to blend them to the outer corners. That's what i do anyway, and it makes a huge difference. I hope that helps!
>>9574552
Also this.
>>
>>9574698

Male anon here again.
Excuse me for my English grammar that can be very bad sometimes, but I'll explain it as good as possible.

From my personal experience you NEVER use expensive 'shaving foam' on your delicate areas, even when the product says 'can be used for sensitive areas'. Almost every product has parfum or chemicals in it that can irritate your skin. And you don't want to scratch your balls all day long because of irritated skin..(been there, done that).

I was always afraid to use razor blades, especially down there since everything is delicate. I used every brand razor blades for males and somehow I always seemed to cut myself.
One day I forgot to buy new razor blades and I decided to use the razor blades from my gf instead (No worries, they weren't been used be her yet). And oh boy.. that was heaven on earth. I really don't know HOW female razor blades can shave so smooth af, but they do. I always thought; razor blades are razor blades right? No need for the blue or pink package. But yeah.. they work. Especially the brand I said earlier in the thread.

A few tips for shaving down there:
- NEVER use some kind of shaving foam. Just shave underneath the shower. The water will make your skin smooth so it'll make shaving easier.
- When you want to shave your genitals make sure you don't have 'lose' skin. Just hold the skin so it will be tight and easier to shave. Otherwise you WILL cut yourself (yeah... unfortunately been there and it hurts like hell).
- Shaving between your butcheeks is tricky, but you have to stand like a sumo wrestler with your legs spread.. Or just hold one leg up and try to shave. Oh, and hold your butcheeks apart so you have space to shave.

And take your time while doing it. No need to rush shaving there.. only bad things will happen from it.

I think this is good advice from male anon to male anon.

(photo is the blade I use)
>>
What do I use for cinching? I have decent enough thighs and ass but the difference between my hips and waist is not enough.
>>
>>9574911
Depends on what kind of difference between hip to waist you want to have.

I use a stretchy broad belt I borrowed from my sister (without her knowing that)

It's one of these decorative belts that serve no purpose but to look like a belt. It gives like only 2 or 3 cm difference in hip to waist ratio but its good enough to be worn underneath a cosplay
>>
Has anyone else ever had any bad experiences while trying to get decent pictures of your crossplay?
>>
>>9575001
My dad walked into me crossplaying.

Beat the everlasting shit out of me and threw me and my "gay" ass out of the house.

Jokes on him, I'm as straight as it can be.
>>
>>9574721
>>9574698

Conditioner makes a great shaving cream substitute that is almost certainly privates friendly.

Coconut oil or baby oil is great to soothe the skin if you need it and you will need it if your hair is thick enough to stubble. I think the oil softens the hair, whatever it does it makes butthole stubble much less annoying.

I personally have moved to using Veet hair removal cream, the sensitive skin kind. Less work, better results/no stubble. I haven't had a bad experience, but it's something to test cautiously.
>>
>>9574955
I just need something to help smooth it all out.

I'll be crossplaying a character with large breasts (fully covered so no cleavage illusion needed). Does anyone known an ez way of how to do this?
>>
>>9576327
step one: properly sized bra
step two: some kind of filling (socks, pantyhose filled with rice, breast forms
step two alternate: get those self-adhesive strapless nu-bras of each cup up to the cup size you want (I think), and layer them like a matryoshka on your chest
step three: pull that extra skin above them so that they're shaped more accurately, and don't look frumpy

another alternate: buy breastforms of the size you want somewhere.
>>
>>9576369
Thank you very much for writing this out. I'll be keeping it as a guide. As well, what in particular were you referring to with "extra skin?" Thanks.
>>
>>9576389
if you feel around your chest you should have at least some fat stored between your nipples and your armpits, that you most people can pull up above the padding to create a better shape at the top of the breasts.
>>
>>9576423
I'm having a hard time imagining how I'd get the skin/fat to stay there. How does that work?
>>
>>9576433
with tape and will power
>>
>>9576433
you pull it up, and inward, then you tuck the padding under it, and into the bra. As the skin tries to return to it's original position it pushes against the padding, and can't move past it due to the bra keeping the padding in place. Which is why it's vital to have a proper-sized bra
>>
>>9576447
Ah, that makes sense. I'll give it a try next time.
>>
>>9576447
Sorry for all the questions, but just to be safe for sizing since I'm going out tomorrow, what should I measure right now to find the right bra size?
>>
>>9576449
measure all the way around your chest, right across your nipples. That is your band size. Cup size, in the case of crossplayers depends on how big the character's breasts are. Then after you get a bra, you get to mess around with the shoulder straps to set it at the right height.. In a previous thread, (about a year ago?) a kind anon taught me that the middle of the breasts should be around halfway between your shoulder and elbow.
>>
Pretty obvious question but, How do you hide the dick?
>>
>>9576494
Dance belt could work.
>>
>>9576494
Tight underwear and tucking.
>>
>>9574272
Bullshit there wasn't.

Wearing a backless dress, would an adhesive bra be the best option so nothing shows around the back or what?
>>
>>9574325
Dat chin though.
>>
>>9574325
>wannabe crossdressers

I mean no point in crossdressing/playing if you're not passable, you'll just end up looking like a drag queen. For example that picture you posted, manly face.
>>
>>9577016
probably, but stick-on bras don't really offer any support so don't expect any added cleavage if you're wearing one
>>
>>9578311
Most people crossplay because they like the character. And the pic you commented on is a Touhou cosplayer. Pretty much all Touhou cosplayers are males who don't pass.
>>
>>9578415
Sounds meh, if you're gonna put effort into a crossplay when you don't pass, what's the point? Surely if you like the character you want to look like them? Instead of just wearing the outfit they wear and having a face that looks nothing like them.

Maybe it's just me, seems kinda pointless.
>>
>>9578438
do you have a problem with white people cosplaying asians?
>>
>>9578466

What? Where did that come from? If you're refering to anime characters they don't look asian or white but whatever.
>>
Any recommendations for hip pads/enhancers? I'm thinking about getting these, but any recommendations or advice would be much appreciated.
>>
>>
>>9578630
Depends on how much shape you need. I have these and I'm not a fan of them because they don't really add a ton of hip imo. But I also prefer a more exaggerated hip area on myself. If you crossplay alot, you should look into making your own. More cost effective and more customizable to what shape you're looking for.
>>
>>9578637
Thanks for the tip. I'm trying to avoid making them for now but I'll definitely consider it once I get more experience crossdressing (I'm trying to aim for a natural look, if that makes sense). Do you wear custom hip pads too? If not, what do you use?
>>
>>9578643
I made my own, yeah. Those that you linked should be fine for you if you're on the thin side and want natural though. They work well enough for me when I'm wearing a more toned down/less body crossplay. Though just an FYI you can get the same ones on ebay for cheaper.

so /cgl/ what do you recomend me, how hard will it be for me to crossdress, what do you consider are the most problematic of my facial features, and what characters do you recomend for me.

I am just starting, and for make up and dressing related stuff i have already a decent female suport, but i want to know what the "experts" think.

My main concern is my jaw and nose; body wise, i am not worried, bc i am 167cm (5'6) and 52kg
>>
>>9579738

not that hard, depends on how your face looks at angles too; show us a few of those
>>
>>9579738
You should worry about your skin first.
>>
Is contouring for male to female crossplaying the same as contouring for male to female 4real?
Also to feminize the face beyond contouring I'm doing eyeliner/shadow/mascara and foundation/concealer of course. Is there anything to be done to the lips? Anime characters tend to have no actual lip color, so maybe just keep them at max health/hydration?
>>
>>9571188
If it's a character like Felix from Re:zero where they just drew a girl and called it a boy then you're probably best off asking questions here.
>>
>>9580230

Yes, you will need to find references for the shape of face you are aiming for, not forgetting that you have to take into account your own features. Find those who cosplay these characters and how they contour, if they do, if you are cosplaying a character with strong features, you will have some fun.

For lips, you will obviously need a pencil so you do not have wonky lipstick/gloss if you intend to use it. Make sure to prep lips first by also applying foundation to them. What I normally do is when I get to lips, I apply balm around the working area, line across my lip line then colour in (always colour in), then on top of that, apply lipstick. Applying pencil all over and then lipstick allows for lipstick to stay and retain its colour for longer.

In terms of anime character lip colour, you have to assume they have lips so you will need to use the appropoate colour.

>I personally have moved to using Veet hair removal cream, the sensitive skin kind
Old post I know but if you're still here; is there a trick to using that stuff? I bought some a while ago, tried it and it gave no result whatsoever. Facial hair's my main problem in the first place (and you can't use it there), but I kinda hoped the hair removal cream stuff would be more thorough than I could get it to work out as.
>>
>>9585431
NO result? That's strange.
Mine says 5 minutes recommended, 10 minutes max.
I normally leave it on for close to 10 but I've taken it off at 5 and it's still done a decent job.
Sorry I can't help, I've also never tried it on facial hair.
Might be worth trying a different brand.

I used to live with a professional "female impersonator", i.e. a drag queen, and he made his own hip pads by cutting up some upholstery foam and just stuffing it into some nylons, and he wore multiple nylons in layers to help keep it secure. I thought that sounded ghetto as hell, but when he did it he would suddenly have rockin' Kardashian level hips, plus the layered nylons had the added affect of making his legs look better. You might want to look into doing something like that, it turns out it's a pretty common trick.
>>
>>9584154
It's expensive and useless if your hair isn't light. I have dark brown hair and while it indeed melted the hairs, it didn't stop or even slow down regrowth.

I used it for 3 months, went through about 16 replacement heads and then gave up.

It only burns about the first 2 weeks of using it. After that it's fine, just not effective.

Also the technique to getting the head to jump up takes some getting used to.

Best to just watch a youtube tutorial, apparently this is what the female impersonators do.

One thing I do remember that this guy doesn't mention is that it's actually better to put the rounded part you carve inward against your skin, not outward like he says, that way it smooths out better and doesn't look like cellulite. My roommate use to also create the illusion of not wearing pads by wearing opaque dance tights that matched his skin color as close as possible first, then a few pairs of sheer tights over those. It seriously made it look like those were his actual hips and butt, shit was nuts.

Your jawline can be sculpted quite easily with contouring and I think the nose isn't a game breaker. No real reason why it wouldn't work I think. I think the next question you need to tackle is if your character's haircut is flattering and helps soften your features as well.

Also photos from my Koakuma shoot came back. So selfposting I guess

You explain this to me. Did she get a boob job or is it all shoop? Also, is it still crossplay if she transitions?

As someone who has seen him in person... Haoge effortlessly passes and dumps a ton of photoshop on top of it. Not sure why, I think it is a chinese cosplayer aesthetic.
>>
>>9593530
There's definitely photoshop involved. Look at the odd shading on the chest, the hard dark shadow under the right edge of the dress's neckline when there are no other hard shadows in the photo... Not that he's not super pretty and feminine without retouching.
>>
>>9593536
I'm more purturbed by why it is done to that extent rather than if it is. Difference between subtle touchups and full on remodeling I guess. Especially since quite alot of the very convincing asian crossplayers really don't need too much shooping anyway.

One of my biggest issues with crossplay has been shaving my face. Doesn't matter what kind of razor I use I still have that blue hue even when I use foundation. I remember someone had suggested using some sort of orange lipstick to cover the blue hue, but that didn't seem to help at all.

A high waisted garter belt would be best if you're not wearing it under something thin. Sock glue is also fine assuming that your thighs are shaven.

Double sided tape just doesn't work in my experience.

Personally, sock glue works better with natural fabrics while double-sided tape works with synthetics better. But in both cases you need to shave.

Where can I find heels for US 9.5/10 online and with international shipping? I live in a shithole where such thing is nearly impossible to find

Step one: find heels that look like the ones in question (maybe Taobao, or aliexpress)
Step two: make sure you get heels in your size
Step three: get the heels
Step four: practice
Step four (a): if the heel in question is delicate, find a practice pair with a stronger heel to start
Step five: can you walk now? If so, you're done. If not practice more.

Notes to remember:
>Heel. To. Toe.
>Keep the hip sway at a low to moderate level.
>Short to medium steps, lest you look like a lumbering lummox.

Sorry for late response, but is the Ben Nye the translucent powder or are you talking about a different powder?
>>
>>9603076
I don't really have any other important notes when it comes to wearing heels. Those 3 were things I got told when I was practicing with heels. But there is one thing that a lot of people might want to keep in mind: heels are noisy, and the sound is distinct; other people in the house will hear, and most will know. So if for some reason you need to keep this stuff hidden, wait until no one is home, or try them out somewhere else, like outside during the later evening/early night when most other people are inside.
Or if you have cash to spend, practice with a nice unisex pair of platform boots that have some heel to them, last I checked those weren't completely out of common fashion

Got some BB cream to somewhat fix my face a few days ago, and it's got a pretty mild foundation in it.
The problem is that with my facial hair growing so fast, a bunch of it gets stuck to that and it's HYPER obvious. Is there some sort of application method which would hide it, or am I just gonna have to suck it up and get that laser hair treatment I've been eying?
>>
>>9605281
You can pluck it, it'll take some time to grow back since you remove the hair from deep inside. Also, plucking is semi permanent since it can damage the root of the hair follicles and, just like laser, make it impossible for hair to grow back, but it almost doesn't happen, so laser is the most permanent for sure. Sometimes good deals appear on groupon and shit, just look for it and don't buy the portable ones, those don't work most times.
>>
>>9605315
I never actually thought to go check places like Groupon, I know there's somewhere local which does it but the number of treatments required makes it pretty extortionate. Plucking in the meantime might be for the best; that area gets pretty inflamed on shaving too, thanks.

Crossdressing gay men seem harmless to the average girl. There's the stereotype of the sassy gay best friend who goes shopping and does makeup with their girl friend.

FYI Nikita is transgender, not a drag queen.

There are tutorials on Youtube that could be helpful. Use some combination of keywords like "male to female", "vocal training", "transwoman", "feminization".

>>9604264
Ru paul's drag race made drag part of pop culture so a lot of younger straight women are starting to like it for different reasons. Either because of the sassy attitude, the glamour, or just for inspiration to be different.

Women generally like gay guys anyway since they're harmless, are probably better looking than straight men, and might enjoy doing feminine things with them like shopping. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-YCdcnf_P8

As for straight women liking crossdressers I guess it's just their personal preference. Like, why do you like the things you do? Although I was actually surprised how intensely some women like crossdressers after I started crossdressing myself, and I'm a straight cis male.

As a crossdresser, most of my interactions with females, while dressed up, comes from a group of girls with butch haircuts that call themselves trans.

Ok. So here's my issue. I'm trans ftm. I am in love with brolita and the whole ladybeard look. I premiered my new look at afest this year and I want to improve it. I guess I would like suggestions on gothic styles that look good on a broader shoulder and larger arms without looking too ridiculous. I'm going to be making my own dress but am not sure how to style the top to suit my new body type.
>>
>>9608015
Are you doing actual gothic lolita, or your own version of jfash? I'm just asking, because there are very few "made my own" lolita dresses that actually end up looking good. Especially if you stand next to people's burando.

If you're looking for styles, outside of gothic lolita I guess there's aristo and ouji but those aren't too "gothic", and male gothic jfash doesn't seem to exist except maybe viz kei or brands like h.naoto?

If you're just looking for broad shoulder tips, maybe just style the top like a jsk or even a halter top and wear a long sleeve blouse or cute outerwear. Broad shoulder is a body type problem that can usually be solved with tricks, not by finding specific styles.

Otherwise post pics so we can get a better sense.
>>
>>9608106
I love the classic cuts. I've been out of the loop for a few years. So I'm not really current on what is and isn't considered in fashion or in what subset of the different styles. I love classic shapes like this one but cap sleeves look like shit on me.
>>
>>9608112
The different lolita styles haven't changed. And it hardly matters what's recently trendy as long as your coord is good.

You can do your own research on lolibrary for inspiration, and look through brands like moi meme moitie, atelier pierrot, antique beast, etc etc, and figuring out the different substyles yourself. Go lurk the coord threads and look at archives, they have good content.

Also I'm just a little confused what being ftm has to do with gothic lolita..
>>
>>9608180
Thanks for the info. The ftm thing is just more about finding something to compliment my body type. I still have wide hips and a narrow waist. But I now also have very broad shoulders and thick arms. The fat redistribution has done a number on my body shape and I'm not sure how to find a top style to compliment that.
>>
>>9608184
Ah. No problem.

As a brolita I just steer clear of shorter sleeves, puffy shoulders, or things like capes. Longer sleeves and wrist/hand accessories can detract attention from arms/shoulders.

Attract attention to the center, which is really easy with lolita as your main piece is the most eye catching especially if it has a border print. Wear curly wigs that help cover your shoulders. Lolita is pretty forgiving for large shoulders, so don't overthink it. However, learn to pose at an angle for cameras.

Otherwise just google broad shoulder tips.

People (more often girls than guys) tend to think it's okay to grope my fake breasts in public.
It's not that the touch itself is unpleasant - I'm not going to pretend this is actual sexual harassment - but I'm worried every time that any onlookers will do a double take on me when they see it.
I feel like if I react like a normal girl would they'd think I'm overreacting, since they just touched some fabric and silicon pads - I don't want to be a drama queen, so I mostly try to play it down.
This is easily enough explained to friends who are used to seeing me dressed, but regularly friends of friends and new acquaintances seem to think this is appropriate and just go for it without asking.
I don't know how to deal with this.

>>9608861
It is the same as with women, it's sexual harassment and, if you dislike it, you should call it out. Some women don't mind or just accept it so to not be a drama queen with friends, but they would call out for men or strangers doing so.

Where should butt padding sit?
I got some panties that you insert the largest (not big enough imo) silicone pads they have, and they look good in a skirt and jeans, but in things that don't have as much form on their own like sweats or tights I can't tell if they should be worn so they're up 1-1 over my butt or if they should be a bit lower to go from the curve of my butt and make it sit a little lower and bigger and then flow back into my thighs.

>All these white wannabes in this thread
Give up, the prerequisite to crossplay is being asian because they have BY FAR the most adaptable face proportions.

Unlike white faces which are easily discerned as female or male (girls have smaller noses and wider mouths while boys have fuckhuge brows and jaws), asian faces are far more androgynous and can be adapted to either.

I'm saying this as a white person, fucking stop and do something else

Did your parents hit you? Just because you wore your mama's shoes and walked around the house that one time? My advice is that you don't project this anger onto others. Stay here, don't go, you clearly have an interest, just don't take out that hatred you've held in all that time on others. Eventually you'll build up that courage and crossdress, like the little you wanted to do before they hit you and hammered that nail down. When you do, we won't judge you, we'll help. So be a functioning human being and show some compassion.

Look you clearly have an interest, why are you here? Reading the crossplay thread? Maybe you don't even realise it, but you have an interest in it.

BTW, for 98% (rough guess) of people on here, it's not for kinks, it's EXACTLY the same as cosplay for us. It doesn't make you gay, besides, if you are gay, is that really so bad? Put your judgements aside and ask yourself, "Why do I keep looking at the crossplay thread?"

I know this is feeding the troll, but I'll keep it to one post.

From one visiting /r9k/ anon to another, nobody seems to be doing the things you're saying. From what I see, nobody is trying to push some social boundary or make a statement, and nobody is acting like their livelihood is destroyed because of you. They're just trying to partake in a hobby they enjoy, but then you come in with the sole purpose of shitting on them for some reason I can't fathom.

Would you like it if you were watching your favorite anime (or whatever it is you do) and some nigger came in and started talking shit about you and your anime? If you don't like their hobby, then you can always go back to /r9k/ or to a /cgl/ thread that does interest you. These people don't have to justify their hobby to you. If you're trying to find someone to blame for the trap crisis on /r9k/, you should direct your blame at /lgbt/ since they're the degenerates pushing titty skittles and openly doing kinky shit. At the very least be more creative and tone down the exaggerations if you stick around to shitpost these people.

Alright, tried the second batch of it today.
It -does- work, surprisingly well in fact, but it's messy as hell and it seems like it'll need multiple applications to get everything. Apparently it took multiple tries to get anything with my hair, which isn't a surprise.
Bonus is that epilating legs afterwards doesn't hurt anywhere near as much because of how weak the hair is.
Maybe after a third application, if it cleans up the rest, I'd be able to recommend it. Was nice to see hair literally just falling off my legs and butt.

I don't think Naoto is a very convincing reverse trap so I'd say look feminine. It was really obvious that she was a girl from minute 1, she's like 5 feet tall and always had the face, voice, and build of a small woman. I would've been more surprised if she had actually been a man desu.

Good job! Maybe add some padding for boobs? I notice it's a little loose there, but could be the pose
>>
>>9623515
Thanks!
The top had a somewhat weird cut, when I added padding the loose area appeared -above- my chest like I tented the whole thing out.
I still have a thing to learn about patterns.

Also, this was my first crossplay with pants, and I found it somewhat easier to pass with a skirt, giving the general shape.
>>
>>9622604
You might want to go for some hip padding. Also, keep your shoulders down, smile and relax! You look tense and unnatural.But overall- good job!

Part of the reason for the tense, not smiling thing is that that's an action pose, with weapons drawn and whatnot - but yes, the reason I chose that one is because when I smile even slightly I get bags under my eyes that are the size of Neptune and Uranus respectively.

Pic related, and also for padding - I guess some subtle pads would be beneficial, I'm just somewhat cautious of making my hips plump when I'm already lanky overall, I'm worried that would look out of place.

Could I make cleavage with Saran wrap?

>>9624927
Why?
Just buy some "chicken cutlets" aka breast enhancers and a bra,
>>
>>9624930
>He thinks I can simply buy cd items
>>
>>9624927
There's a method that involves duct tape, but it hurts, and if done wrong it just looks like utter shit, but saran wrap does not have enough pulling force unless you already have a moderate amount of fat already there
>>9624978
>wants to crossdress (or crossplay)
>can't buy relevant items
This hobby involves a lot of purchasing even if you don't buy any convenience items such as the cutlets, or padded clothing. So good luck getting everything you need
>>
>>9625323
use amazon or say it's for your girlfriend if that's the issue.

If that's not it you can fake it till you make it. Get a bra used from goodwill if they carry them, use some sock stuffing and maybe a little bit of contour if you need the cleavage line itself to be seen.

I think that evening your skin tone with light foundation and / or just with powder would be the right balance. Mild contouring at tops but nothing very noticeable since Naoto seems very "neat" and clean faced.

>>9624927
You could buy several pairs of bras to create an illusion of bigger breasts and cleavage. Basically buy atleast 3 pairs of them with the smallest fitting your chest comfortably (or get slightly bigger ones so that you can fill them with socks to achieve them oppai) then the 2nd pair would be slightly bigger that gives the effect of bigger breasts and the 3rd pair would be push up bras that help you get the cleavage and again bigger looking, lifted breasts. You could also try contouring a cleavage but if you draw it on a flat surface it will look funny from different angles.

Planning of doing a Lust crossplay from FMA and I have a dilemma with her makeup. She seems to wear little to almost none except mascara and lipstick but my mug needs a layer of cake to look feminine. Would it be too crude to do a full blown makeup with false lashes, drawn eye crease, glitter etc instead of trying to look more "fresh" ?

I'm also interested to know people's opinion regarding minor changes of character designs that help cosplayers look more feminine or masculine if that's one of the major points of the cosplay. For example adding paddings on waist and chest to seem more hourglass shaped and feminine even though the character looks slim or not that curvy. Also wearing clothes in a different manner or cut them differently to accentuate your best points.
Just got the wig and beginning to style it.

Not 100% sure if this belongs here, but I'm looking to cosplay Homura Akemi for an upcoming con. I have never attempted a crossplay before.

Does anyone here know who makes the best male-sized version of her outfit?

Measure yourself. Then look at costume measurements. It's not hard.
>>
>>9627933

I did that. The problem is that there are dozens of different makers, not a whole lot of them seem to have reviews outside of a scant "pretty good"-esque generic feedback, and I don't know which ones are reputable or of good quality.

This is probably a question for another thread, now that I think of it, but I was hoping that someone else here might have tried a Homura crossplay and could point me in the direction of a more reputable-quality costume.
>>
>>9627943
Don't worry too much about the crossplay part.

Re-measure yourself, add some for your bust and hips since you'll fill those in to create a figure.

You can easily go into any other thread and as long as you find something that matches up with those measurements, you're fine.
>>
>>9627943
if you're looking at mass-produced or chinese ones, there really won't be anything other than "pretty good"
anything higher quality and you'll need to find someone to commission to make it for you and that will start to cost in the hundreds
>>
>>9625753
That looks plenty good already, anon. I think gonig for "full blown" makeup fits the character pretty well though.

M -> F crossplayer here. Looking for japanese loose socks, pic related. The problem is I have big feet, about US size 11, and these socks are usually for females size 5-7.5. I was wondering if I can fit them since these are some long ass socks.
>>
>>9628401
Just say you're doing a genderbend or r63 cosplay. There's no way to describe it without certain people getting upset because the entire concept just makes them mad that you're doing that instead of a trans __ cosplay.

Most won't have the guts to say anything in person if it does bother them and I doubt the majority or regular non uber sjw congoers think it's a bad thing.
>>
>>9629192
I'm a tall girl with women's size 11 feet and I just got a 180cm pair of socks like this off amazon. They said they only fit up to a 7.5 or something but they fit my feet just fine.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N59U4AK

seems like the price went up for the 180cm though, I got them for 25 bucks.
>>
>>9629192
I should have mentioned that I think Your feet will fit in them as well. the food of the sock is stretchy and even if it doesn't stretch long enough for your feet, they're freaking long and I doubt it'll matter too much desu
>>
>>9629192
I also got mine off Amazon. I wear women's size 9. They will probably fit you since they're just a really long tube sock without an ankle part. They're so expensive, though.

Guy here, not looking to "pass" as a woman, but I'm trying to find some overtly feminine costumes to wear on halloween for the fuck of it.

Found a Sailor Moon costume but even the largest size is apparently made for an anorexic chinese woman.

(Bust size was 38-39 which BARELY matches mine. I'm not fat at all, and I have no tits, and the XXXL size still would barely fit my chest, let alone anything else.)

Where the hell do you find costumes in non-anorexic chinese girl sizes? My chest/waist/hips are like 38-31-38 or something like that, can't find anything that would fit that isn't just a generic schoolgirl costume.

Completely new to this, what's the best way to cover up underneath skin facial hair that's already been shaved? I was thinking foundation maybe but I have no make up experience at all

You sound dumb because nothing about that size says anorexic, just Asian.

Look for listings on aliexpress with maid + male size, plus size. or something in that vein. Bodyline also has cosplay with larger sizing.
>>
>>9628838
People are taking offense to the terms genderbending and crossplaying now because they imply only 2 genders.
>>
>>9630747
If you meet people like that IRL who literally lecture you about nonbinary gender it's probably safe to just walk away and not care.

I'm interesting in crossplaying as a genderbent Hakan (from street fighter).

I've been having fun thinking about what a girl Hakan would look like, and eventually I wanna try doing it. Any advice on the following?

-Body paint that can make me look like a red person without the paint peeling or coming off when I pour olive oil on myself.

-Lightly padding a makeshift leather bra so I can wear only the bra and have it look okay. Like, no shirt, only bra. If I can't figure this out I'll use a tank top style instead to make it easier.

-The hair. Hakan's hair looks like it's got stone octopus rings on it. I was thinking to make it girly I could have two octopus tentacles, like twintails. I like that idea especially because Hakan's wife has sort of twintail braids, and I think it'd be a good reference. No idea how to make that though.

I have a fairly feminine body to begin with so the somewhat revealing nature of this isn't a huge problem. Fuck, Hakan's so cool.
>>
>>9633999
You know you're not crossplaying if you're cosplaying a genderbent variant of a character, right? You're just regularly cosplaying a OC based on a character of the opposite sex.
For you to crossplay him I'd suggest getting something like this in red (http://www.flexdesigncostumes.com/standard-muscle-suit.html), getting/making the shorts, armband and leg band as needed, paint your face & feet, and make a low profile helmet sort of thing for whatever helmet / hair thing he has going on.

I don't really browse this board that much, nor do I browse /lgbt/, but I feel more comfortable asking this here. I've started shaving my legs - I'm a guy - using pic related. They work very well. However, I have 2 problems. One is my rate of hair regrowth - after 2-3 days, I start to feel like I need to do it again. It's not a problem, I was just wondering if there's a way to force it to slow down without taking drugs of some kind. The other problem I have is that the soap around the razor seems to run out quite quickly. In 2 weeks I've already depleted 2 cartridges. Any tips on how to make them last longer?
Thanks if anyone is able to help!
>>
>>9634364
Just buy a regular women's razor or whatever and don't feel bad that you have to shave so often. I pretty much shave every night. Otherwise, get an epilator if you just want to do it 1-2 times per week.
>>
>>9634018
How is it not crossplay? I'd be a guy dressed as a girl.
>>
>>9634533
For some reason, with how you put your initial post, I thought you were a girl. In that case, crossdressing a nonofficial genderbent version of a character seems, kinda redundant. Cosplay what you want, but if you're already a guy, why go through the hassle of looking good cosplaying as a girl version of a already male character?

I'm about to purchase a tailored girl's costume and they need to know my height, weight, bust, waist and hips. Is this diagram correct?
>Bust measured at nipples
>Waist measured at navel
>Hips measured at the widest part at the top of the pelvic bone
>>
>>9635210
Waist isn't always precisely on navel. Just use the slimmest part.
>>
>>9635210
bust is the largest measurement you can get on your chest, hips is the largest on your waist, waist is the smallest you can get on your waist

You could do what I plan on doing, don't exactly have to worry about having your face pass if 75%+ of it's covered.
>>
>>9635262
I've put some thought into trying to do cosplay like that in general, not only crossplay, because I have a face that isn't bad, but it doesn't have the 'clean' look you'd want for cosplay. I wouldn't look like any character.
I've put some thought into a Celty cosplay, maybe, but trying to do that at a con seems a bit... Well, I'd be a bit worried people would photograph the booty.
Maybe cosplay just isn't for me.
>>
>>9635268
Most people don't look like whatever they're cosplaying, crossplaying or otherwise. I'd say go for a character that's either at least somewhat looks like you and go for it, or shoot for something completely non-human that'd need a mask/full head to work.
The latter's what I prefer to do 'cause I'd personally rather have a cosplay be wrong because of something I can fix rather than something I can't do anything about without major reconstructive surgery.
>>
>>9635281
I'm just a shy perfectionist.
To be honest, my ideal situation would be to have someone cute I could make absurdly elaborate cosplay for, instead. I'm more interested in the making part, anyway.

I think I want my next project to be something really over-the-top and elaborate too. Not sure what yet.

you can call it whatever you want, but you're gonna have to do the same tricks as other crossplayers, you might as well call it that

Not sure how many FtM crossplayers lurk in these threads, but I'll shoot anyway.
Recently I've started listening to The Adventure Zone, and I'm planning to cosplay someone from it for my next con. Initially I was planning to do one of the females, but my bf and my brother mentioned cosplaying it as well, and I love the idea of doing a tres horny boys group. I'd love to cosplay Taako, but I have a very large chest (around 110 cm). I've been looking into binders, but I'm wondering if there are any larger busted girls who have experience with different brands and how they work. Right now I'm looking at GC2B because they have a really good size range.
>>
>>9640013
If you want to get as flat as possible, do underworks. My friend has huge tits and they get her as small as possible. I use underworks when I want to be super flat, but I do love my GC2B binder. GC2B is more comfortable for all day wear.

Just understand that even at your flattest, you have a lot to work with and you will still have mass around your chest. When arranging your tits in the binder, try and keep them round and don't let them pancake. Think about where your nipple would sit if you didn't have boobs and try and keep the extra fat closer to your band area/armpit because it's easier to hide. Figure out what works best for you! Keep your chest in mind when choosing your top for your cosplay so you don't emphasize your chest.

I hope that helps! Good luck!
