View Full Version : Crossplaying Ansem

04-30-2003, 09:59 PM
Hewo, Ansem and Cloud from Kingdom Hearts will be my first crossplays, and for me Ansem poses a particular problem because of his open coat. I'm honestly not sure whether to just bind down on the side as much as possible and body glue/duct tape the coat to myself, or use a body suit and airbrush on abs and pecs. What do u guys think? Thanks for any help u can offer! :)

Here's Ansem's costume:

Well, if you look on the "binding help" thread in the crossplay forum, my Sports Tape "open front" method looks like it may work for that (and you still might want to use makeup to make the muscle definition.) I honestly don't know yet how many hours the tape will hold up, as I had about 1/2 an hour to try it at the time. If you are concerned, maybe you do still want to go with a bodysuit. (I won't use a bodysuit for Dilandau though.)
