View Full Version : Most Crossplayed..

Well.. I'm going to combine this thread into two things I want to talk about to save space.

First, what do you think the most Crossplayed character is? My opinion, Inuyasha is the most crossplayed by girls and any Di Gi Charat character is the most crossplayed for guys. At least that is my experience. I have only been to one convention and half the time I couldn't tell anyway.. ^_^() I was so stunned that I was actually at a convention I hardly noticed the cosplayers were crossplaying until an unfortunate Di Gi Ko experience... lol. So yes... opinions?


And the second thing. I MIGHT CROSSPLAY!! I've never done that before, but I'm seriously considering it now. I really thinking about doing Inuyasha. My boyfriend is like "you'd make cute Inu Yasha" but I'm still a bit nervous. I've never done that before and yeah... I still want to do it though just because I love him so much. ^_^
We were going to do a group cosplaying as Inu Yasha and I was going to get stuck being Kagome, but she isn't my favorite. Suddenly I have realized that everyone else is being other characters (they are all guys mind you) so I decided perhaps I should do Inu Yasha.

Well from my experience, most yaoi characters are cosplayed by girls. Such as Shuichi, Ryuichi, Mr. K, Tsuzuki, well shoot, all of Gravitation and Yami no Matsuei, along with Gundam Wing. It just happens to be like that ^^;

01-25-2003, 05:02 PM
Any of the Weiss guys. Hands down. ^___^; *guilty of that as well..* And probably Gravitation..

i do think inu yasha is cosplayed alot but that me! ^_^

RoseDuelist
01-25-2003, 05:26 PM
Yeah, but I'm talking Crosplay. O.o I have seen only, like, one male Inu Yasha out of 5 total.

Shippou. Shippou has got to be one of the most Crossplayed characters, I think >>. I saw about three or four Shippou cosplayers at OhayoCon, and all were girls. I think they did good on their costumes though ^^. Also, I don't believe there -are- any male Shippou cosplayers Oo'. Anyways, Inuyasha's cosplayed equally by guys and girls if you ask me. I've seen about as many male Inuyashas as I have seen Female ones, though, there might be just a few more female ones ^^'. Hmm..-Thinks of more commonly crossplayed characters- Ah, Duo Maxwell. He's rarely cosplayed by a guy 'Oo. Hmm...that's about all I can think of now, heh. Most of the males in really popular anime shows get crossplayed by girls at some point or another, and rarely are they not. -Nodders- Heh. I'm a person that has yet to cosplay a girl. I've always crossplayed as a guy for everything. For Halloween, for cosplaying, everything. Oh well ^^'.

Celine
01-25-2003, 06:25 PM
I've seen lots of these crossplayed as well- Shippo, Inu Yasha, Duo Maxwell & the other Gundam boys, Shuichi... To add to that list, Kenshin and Kuja. As for guys crossplaying, Cardcaptor Sakura and sailor scouts are another popular choices (though they're definitely outnumbered by the girls doing those characters) in addition to Digi Charat.

You should totally do Inu Yasha if you like him that much. Crossplay is fun, and people are generally accepting of it. If your boyfriend supports your idea, more power to you. ^_^

RoseDuelist
01-25-2003, 06:49 PM
^_^ Yayness... Inuyasha was the first crossplay idea I have ever had. I'm not against that sort of thing, but it was a strange idea for me to do. I'm soooo going to do it now though. *can't stop smiling* I wuv me inu yasha.. *huggles plushie*

01-25-2003, 07:04 PM
Nuriko from Fushigi Yuugi (has yet to see any male Nuriko, lol) and Kuja from Final Fantasy IX!!! But then again, I give MAJOR MAJOR points to guys who do Kuja... I've seen like a total of 1 person x_x

videogirlc
01-25-2003, 07:37 PM
Nuriko would be at the top of my list also some of the other Fushigi Yuugi characters.

KnuxieChan
01-25-2003, 07:39 PM
Nearly half of my cosplay is crossplay XD I've done Shippou, Dark Schneider, James (TR), and Tetsuo ^^'

Hikaruchan
01-25-2003, 08:20 PM
Yeah, I have seen 3 male Nurikos compared to tons of female ones. Sailor Moon & Mars and Sakura also get a lot of crossplay.

Cocoa
01-25-2003, 08:44 PM
Hmm...I've only been to one con, but I've looked through all sorts of cosplay sites on the 'net. Haven't seen a guy cosplay Subaru Sumeragi, from X and Tokyo Babylon.

This may be a little old school but there used to be a lot of Ranma crossplays.

TheLoneWolf
01-25-2003, 09:47 PM
Most I've seen:

Sakura (CCS)
Chii
Sailors

Yuna
01-25-2003, 09:56 PM
those are the most Crossplayed TheLoneWolf?

I really have seen any crossplayed Chii's o_O;

Psychotic Jei
01-25-2003, 10:23 PM
Hn.... Nuriko is funny to be cosplayed as if you think about it. A Cosplayer crossplaying as a crossdresser. =B

Tenshi
01-25-2003, 10:40 PM
Yeah, someone show me a Chii crossplayer. I'm REALLY curious.

Oh, and FF males seem to be cosplayed just as much by girls as guys. Especially VII and VIII.

TheLoneWolf
01-25-2003, 10:43 PM
ph [;ease,there were at least two males out of the 5 chii's I saw

RoseDuelist
01-25-2003, 11:11 PM
Well, Ranma has a guy AND girl form so I am not sure that that counts. My boyfriend and I were going to be both forms. ^_^ But we changed our minds and swapped for other Takahashi characters..

TheLoneWolf
01-25-2003, 11:18 PM
Lemme guess........Chars from Maison Ikkoku?

RoseDuelist
01-25-2003, 11:25 PM
Nope. I'm going to be Inu Yasha and he is going to be Miroku. Our friends will be Shippo and Narako (or Naraku.. bah.. I can't remember the spelling. The crappy sub I have changed the spellings repeatedly).

I haven't seen Maison Ikkoku or Mermaid scar, but they are next on my list of TAKAHASHI MUST SEE'S!!! ^_^ I'm a tad obsessed with Takahashi.

TheLoneWolf
01-25-2003, 11:26 PM
As am I with Miyazaki! Hope you get through them soon!
A tip though: START WITH THE MANGAS!!

RoseDuelist
01-25-2003, 11:29 PM
So I've heard. >< My boyfriend is my only source of everything Takahashi. He wrote this extensive essay about Jusenkyo and analyzed the effects it has on characters age and this whole degenerating effect the springs have. I just got off a 3 hour phone call, half of it about Jusenkyo >< .... lol

Schu
01-25-2003, 11:37 PM
I'd say Omi from Weiss Kreuz for girls and for guys.... prolly Puchiko or Shampoo? Dunno thou... As for Nuriko, I guess you can tell i'm guilty of that one... I've never seen a guy do him justice...

Hikaruchan
01-25-2003, 11:48 PM
Cocoa,

Just for you, here is a pic I took of a nice male Subaru

yeh, definitely subaru from tokyo babylon

shuichi from gravitation is also done a lot by girls..

Sunde & Schuld
01-26-2003, 01:59 AM
*chuckles* I've seen everyone from Weiss + Schwarz... oooh look! I'm a Schuldig cross-cosplayer *smirk*

I was one of the first ones to cosplay Ryuichi..hell ONE person knew who I was at the WHOLE con........before there were fifty Shuuichis... lol.

What I see the most though, would have to be Youjis... lots and lots of Youji-chicks.

I've seen guys crossplay as Ryouko, Anthy, Dejiko, Rabi and a few other very obvious females.

I give anyone who crossplays kudos though, it takes a lot of guts to wear a dress if you're a guy ^^

Karisu-sama
01-26-2003, 02:18 AM
Kamatari from Rurouni Kenshin is not cosplayed by many people, but I've NEVER seen a guy cosplay him... (same type of issues as Nuriko, pretty much)

I will reiterate that I once saw a VERY cute guy as Sakura from Sakura Taisen. Fanime '02.

Psychotic Jei
01-26-2003, 04:20 AM
I have to agree...I havent seen a guy do Nuriko justice either. Considering his features...it make sense really.

Cocoa
01-26-2003, 11:04 AM
*laughs* I could point out so many details missing from that Subaru outfit, but that's mostly because it's a favorite of mine - planning on doing it for Shoujocon this year. And I still think that my favorite Subarus are the best ones, and both of them are female ^^

01-26-2003, 11:22 AM
YAY! SHOUJCON! ::clings to you::

Anyway, I agree with Shuichi and Nuriko. I havn't seen too many male cosplayers for those. I'm making my best friend cosplay Shuichi for SJcon, though. He's never done a guy before, so... this is a step-up for him. XD yay for stiv!

I might crosplay in the future. Sounds like an interesting experence.. major problem is, I have tan skin and curly curly hair. I look like NO anime character. Female or Male. Unless I straiten it out which is a pain in my ass but... yeah. Maybe one day. XD

TheLoneWolf
01-26-2003, 11:46 AM
Well,actually,they're plenty of tan chars male and female in plenty of anime&video games,this was already covered in a post some time ago,but notable male chars are:K',Original Zero (KoF),Tsume (Wolf's Rain),Akio Otohori (Utena).For females we have: Urd (O!MG),Pirotess (Lodoss Wars),Caska (Berserk!).Like I said,these are just the few off the top of my head,there was a big post about dark-skinned anime boys&girls which you might find a few pages back!

chibistarkodomo
01-27-2003, 04:07 PM
Waaahh I thought there weren't too many Shippos>< Oh well haven't seen one in FL yet so that's just peachy for me^_^

As for crossplay... My first oficial cosplay was a crossplay of Eriol^_^ GAH HE'S A BISH^_^

I'm guilty of the "wanting to crossplay as Inu Yasha" group (started my costume but haven't got too far for various reasons)

Crossplay is fun^_^ Especially when your crossplaying as a character you think is hot **drools over Eriol** then you can glomp urself... wait... is that possible...

***tries to glomp herself**

http://nine3k1.ods.org/cosplay/inuyasha3.jpg

^^^ one of my not very many non-crossplay... lol

I would actually say that Dilandau is most crossplayed.. I've only seen a picture of one male dilandau and the rest girls... ^^;

domestik
01-27-2003, 06:16 PM
I'm somewhat off topic here but... Ohhhh! Subaru cosplayer, in his shikifuku! ^^;

Ahhh, and I'm actually going to do that this year at AX, too! XD *can already see the insane running around looming overhead*

Annnd back on topic!...

I agree that Duo Maxwell is a popular character that is crossplayed, at least being one who I've seen in person most of the time. ^^; I need to stop zoning out at cons and hiding in corners. o_o

RoseDuelist
01-27-2003, 06:25 PM
Nine, I already saw your pic. I looked at your costume data base a long time ago. ^_^ Your very good and you Lu Lu was flawless in my opinion. I saw your Inu Yasha and Sailor Moon and everything..

That was off topic, but yeah.. ^_^ Just wanted to say, I already saw you and you did wonderful with it. You posed and all..

KnuxieChan
01-27-2003, 07:32 PM
That'd be funny to see a girl do Onizuka (GTO) XD..

Cocoa
01-27-2003, 07:42 PM
OT: Domestik, you're doing Subaru's shikifuku?! I want pictures when you get it done. I love that outfit to death.

Thinking about it, I also saw a bunch of Shuuichi crossplayers at Shoujocon. Like, three or four. Although I wasn't really paying a whole lot of attention to the outfits around me - too busy staring at a cute TB Subaru cosplayer ^^

Don't forget Yuna from FFX, seen alot of them- good costume tho

RoseDuelist
01-27-2003, 09:53 PM
Lol... I saw a Yuna with a beer belly.. he was making a point of it too, resting his hand on his stomach and all... quite funny.. ((he had stubble too so I know it was a guy))

Yeeeeesuu! I am doing his shikifuku since it's what he wears in his tarot card and we're doing an X tarot card group. :X I shall get you pictars whenever I am done with it. Hopefully I won't do such a craptastic job on it. @_@

Hm. I also recall knowing maaaany a femmes who've run around in Nuriko. Yes. Add more to the Nuriko crossplayers. :X

GUNDAM WING BOYS. They're crossplayed a lot! And you know, I don't think I've ever seen a *BOY* cosplay Rosiel. Seen quite a few girls, however....

~~Tsuki Guujin~~

Chas
01-31-2003, 06:38 PM
Hm... I think for girls hands down the most popular crossplay is Fushigi Yuugi's Nuriko. ^_^ As for the guys, I've just seen far too many Sailor Senshi dudes and Di Gi Charat characters. XD

Crossplay IS fun. ::thumbs up:: Shuichi crossplayers unite, damnit! XD XD XD Although most of my cosplay IS crossplay. It's just more fun! ^_^

Cocoa
01-31-2003, 08:20 PM
*laughs* Counting the one con I've been two and the two I'm going to be at (AB and Shoujocon, whoohoo!), I have done/am planning to do nine outfits. Out of those, one is female, and one is genderless. The rest are guys. And I am a girl. So, yes, crossplay IS fun. Especially when you have yummy Subaru cosplayers whose Seishirou you are ^^ (you know, even though I don't actually look like Sei-chan)

My first cosplay is actually going to be a crossplay outfit along with my friend. I'm going as Ayame from Fruits Basket and she is going as Farfello to Fanime...

I've definately seen a lot of Nuriko crossplay along with Shuichi & the four Weiss boys...

PockyDarcy
02-02-2003, 02:02 PM
most cosplayed...-_- ok here is what I think
Hellsing
Trigun
Final Fantasy 10, 8 and soon to be 10-2 & kingdom hearts (just wait till Otakon, I mean final fantasy con! >_<)
cowboy bebop
Gundam Wing
sailor moon... tv anime

I'm glad I don't like popular anime

PockyDarcy
02-02-2003, 02:08 PM
Most crossplayed:
Fushigi Yugi
(not just nuriko but tuski and chichiri)

Gundam Wing
(how many female duo's can you possibly see at shoujocon?)

Weiss Krues
(same with any weiss krues guy)

*looks over at pile of 'in progress' Gravi costumes*...hehehe...

from talking to some guys about this..most of them think the reason fer girls doing those characters is cause the guys don't want to do 'gay' charas...such a lame excuse don't you think? I mean...ALL my costumes are crossplay...the male characters are just a lot of fun..*huggles her Tohma costume*


...the most crossplay I think is for Gravi, Yami no Matsuei and Weis Kreuz...

Ran_fujimiya
02-06-2003, 01:02 AM
most crossplayed...um..

weiss kreuz... gundam wing, ff sereis...

especially weiss kreuz- lot of fangirls crossplay Omi, aya, and yohji.
(ah.. i m the "few" male cosplayer who cosplay aya, yohji, ken, omi and the gluhen one)

02-08-2003, 11:38 AM

I have to say that there are a good number of guy schoolgirls out there.. I dunno if this is to my credit or discredit, but I added to that population this past Katsu.. :-[ (slightly embarrassed because it was still guyish looking unlike that kickass crossplay Mai...)

In any case, I'm working on it, looking to do Major Kusanagi in SWAT gear later and maybe Kiriki from Noir this summer......

...and might I add...it must be so tedious being a girl sometimes..It took me friggin EVER to shave my legs!

I am gonna go with most male FF characters, I always see them crossplayed.
And..for males? Umm..*thinks* card captor Sakura..because I've seen two people crossplay as her at a con I went to. ^^; But I don't think that's a general con thing.

I've seen another about a year ago on Fansview.com. I belive it was a west coast con. Can't remember the name. I was planning on doing a Panyo Digi xplay (the one with the star on her shirt, the name escapes me...just waking up) in mid 2002. Never went though with it. My latest and newest cosplay (in over a year) is not xplay. http://digitalshin.com/cosplay_shingo.htm (Shingo of Initial D) . Not much of one ^_^;;..

I agree Irvy, there has been many crossplayed FF characters. Mostly with girls crossplaying the male characters like Sephiroth, Irvine, etc.

Wow, cyankirby, were you that giant Bowser at Otakon last summer!? It was awesome... though I'm not sure if that was you crossplaying or no... ^_~
