I was working on my Cloud costume and I remembered that scene when he was dressed asa girl in Wall Market. Then I started thinking about crossplay and this question occured to me:
If a guy/girl dresses as a character who is male/female but dresses like the opposite gender, would that be considered crossplay or not since the character themself is supposed to be male/female?

This is mostly technicalities... I say it would still be cross-play because despite his apparell Cloud was still a guy. And as we all know "the clothes don't make the man/ the clothes don't decide if they're a man..."

-That's my opinion

A male cosplaying Cloud disguised as a Wallmarket female isn't crossplaying. Cloud is male; the male is male.

Agrias... calm down! Notice that Cole registered JULY 2003!! That's this month. He doesn't know how many times a question has been asked. The month that YOU first joined did you know it had been asked here speficially without hearing from a friend? I doubt it. Hell, I joined awhile ago and I only heard it spoke of just recently. Don't have a horse or anything.

Okay, lol let me kinda help you people out. If you are cosplaying a character that is the opposite biological gender you are, then you are crossplaying. If you are cosplaying a person that is biologically the same gender as you but that character is crossdressing, then you are not crossplaying. Here's some more threads about this subect:

Using my 'digging through forums power' I dug up all the threads I could find about "Is this crossplay?" Enjoy! :P
