Haii!! :DD
So I was planning on making a cosplay for Aki-con which is coming up pretty soon! So once I started watching Panty and Stocking I feel in LOVE with stocking. But then the demon twins came in and I almost died!! I drew some sketches of the male version of them since I do not want to crossplay as a girl xD

Bit confused by your naming... you have stocking listed for both photos. Kneesocks and Scanty are not twins either, they are sisters. Kneesocks is the younger (and cuter) one.

In any case, if you are going to gender bend a character, Kneesocks is more noticeable since she has red skin and a horn identifying her.

I agree with DireKitty... I would say Kneesocks because I instantly recognized that character, while I would not have recognized the first as Stocking.

Thanks for the opinions! It also might be fun to go as 'Mr.Kneesocks' xD because I have never seen a male gender blend Scanty and Kneesocks! ^-^

I've seen artwork for it, but never an actual cosplay.

Stocking's wig is so iconic, that just layering the proper colors in a shorter, male style will probably communicate the character even if you were to throw on a generic store-bought suit or halloween-issue police officer uniform.

FantasySheep already makes a pre-made male stocking wig.

I'm gona say keep drawing your own, else you're not doing an original character...it'll be a fanart of someone ELSE's "original"...ie something that already exists of a series that, well, already exists.

I like the fact you did your own work before coming here. Too many ppl want things in their lap...computers are already there!
Fellow demon chick here, and I was drawn to this thead having a feeling it would get to the red pair. :p

I'm having trouble on that as well! >.<
I was thinking about getting the regular old face paint and put it on my face, neck, and hands then I was going to put a translucent powder so it could last and look more matt! ^-^

Go for the matte, it's great.
As many times as I've heard and been nominated to do one of these of the non-gender bent....I would like to see you finish a genderbend from THIS direction before I think about doing this one way o another....cause I think you can.
in M->F creation....we're all tapping this one from different angles. Do a few versions! sketch your own version and do that too. I kinda wanna see this jazz, really bad.

Is pics of more male stocking ideas
I personally think male stocking would be awesome, the hair would stick out, and if you carry around the swords, people will (fans of the show) recognize you, and her doll

I'm cosplaying as male stocking for a con. And I'm a guy so I'm not cross playing either. But I think male stocking would be just as good as male misskneesocks. Due to stockings iconic wig and swords or Honekoneko. ^_^
