When I cosplay (in this case crossplay) I like to "dress up" like guys, but I can't say im really good at it. I need some tips on how to look and be more like a guy. One problem is that I have really feminine body with hips and big boobs. If any of you have any tips please tell me! Thanks

I know this has been brought up a few times already. ^^; For my part, I've found that wearing baggy clothes is really one of the only ways to make an effiminate figure less apparent. That and, of couse, making sure your chest is well-hidden, by binding or any other method.
Also, if your eyebrows are plucked and/or ladylike, you might need to make them heavier with eyebrow pencil or somesuch. Whereas in my case, I actually might have to narrow 'em down next time.. -_-;; curse you and your pretty-boyness, Subaru.
As for BEING more like a guy, I honestly can't say.. the guys I crossplay are all kinda femmy themselves, so.. XP

Did you check the other threads in the crossplay forum here? ^_^; The subject has been touched upon quite a bit if you look around at the other topics. :D

Well, there's always the good old tank top-n-duct tape method. <_<; *l* I don't know how well thick medical bandages would work, but I've seen some girls do pretty well with hiding their chests by donning a tank top and having a friend wrap duct tape around them in a decently tight fashion... it's sorta cheap and quick, and as long as whatever you're wearing over the top isn't form-fitting, it's efficient at hiding the boobies. XD

Yeah that might work but it dosen't seem very comfy though, but I might try with the bandages

Personally I recommend 6" width Ace bandages. I tried it with 4", I tried it with the self-adhesive, and I've used tape as well, and my preference has become what's generally recommended here - the 6" non-adhesive ones. The clips don't generally come off, though you can put some tape over them to make sure they don't, and I didn't have any problems with slippage or anything else bad. It's relatively comfortable too. The advantage over tape is it's easier to take on and off, and it IS breathable so you don't get as hot.
