This is a fairly random topic... but then again, we're cosplayers, randomness is what sustains us.

Anyway, I here a lot of people mention fem! versions of their favorite characters, and for some reason I really want to cosplay femme!Sebastian, so much to the point that I've started doodling sketches on all my schook notes. >>' I just feel like I wouldn't feel rbave enough to wear it, I suppose. A lot of my friends hate gender-bending cosplay, and I know they'd ridicule me for "ruining" the character.><

I'd also like to see some male versions of girl characters.... has anybody made a cosplay like that? What gender-bending would you like to see/do in the near future?

I'm kind of on the fence about whether or not to make my Disgaea Thief a crossplay or a genderbent version (then again the only difference either way will be if I make the jacket a cropped one or not).

To be honest I think it would be good to see a genderbent cosplay of pretty much everything (it's annoying when your favorite character's the opposite gender and you don't feel like/think you can pull off a crossplay so this is a good way around it). I'd love to see a genderbent BlazBlue group in particular though.

Wouldn't that just get people asking you what's wrong with Raiden's hair? _"

But seriously, I think that's a pretty cool idea.

I was once recruited as a fem!Sebastian for a strange BB cosplay concept, but it was dropped just as quickly as it was adopted. :p

I'd love to cosplay a gender-swap Sheryl Nome. Not only is man!Sheryl hot, but it's also canon. :D Macross Frontier: Sayonara no Tsubasa, Kindan no Elixir concert sequence.

Fem!Auron would look so badass. >:D

EDIT: OK, I like that idea so much, I'm adding it to my costumes-to-do list.

Genderbent Panty and Stocking (http://images4.fanpop.com/image/photos/17900000/gender-bender-panty-and-stocking-with-garterbelt-17957020-2000-1600.jpg) is always fun. :P It's so popular you can find wigs of it.
Fem!Kyon (AKA Kyonko) (http://www.gorbashkazdar.com/demotivators/Ponytails.PNG) (the picture's a good laugh if you've read/seen the series :P) would actually probably be something I'd be willing to do, considering I already have the costume and if I just grew out my hair it'd be perfect. :P

And then there's genderbent VOCALOIDs. My boyfriend was talking about being genderbent Miku (http://img223.imageshack.us/img223/1526/3pcdrz0.jpg) with one of our friends as Rin...I kinda laughed at him. ^^;

That would be so cool to see.:D The vocaloids have so many costume variations too, so it's about time some male versions of Miku came about. I'd cosplay a fem!Gakupo, but he's pretty girly already.xD

There are plenty of Mikuos out there. He's kind of the prime example of genderbent Vocaloids.

I posted this in a topic, but it didn't get any responses, so I'm hoping that if I post it here I will.

I want to go to NYAF as a female Alfred F. Jones (name = Alicia "Allie" F. Jones). So, I have most of the costume down, my biggest problem is that I want Allie's costume to be relatively close to Alfred's (only it will be much too hard to track down female army fatigues that would match). At the moment, I can't figure out what I want to wear underneath the jacket. Meaning, her actual outfit. Here are my ideas so far:
1) a tan/beige pencil skirt with a white collared shirt, and a tie
2) a mini-skirt (maybe tan or beige) of undetermined style, a white blouse and a silk scarf
3) denim jeans, a white collared shirt, and a tie
OR
3.5) denim jeans and a white tank top or blouse

What do you guys think? Additional ideas are MORE than welcome.

I did a gender-bend cosplay of Sephiroth. I've revamped it though and will be debuting the new version to Otakuthon in two weeks.

I like seeing gender-bends. It's nice to see the different interpretations.

I cosplayed Genderbend garterbelt this year at Otakon (http://http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3012321/). I had alot of fun wearing it.

Also I was wondering how do you guys come up with your gendebends do you use fanart or just your imagination?

TechnoxXxDeath
08-04-2011, 10:00 AM
For me I look at the original character design and then sketch out a couple ideas of how I think that said character would look opposite gender. While still sticking to some of the original outfit XD

I wanted to put together a male version of Kyouko from Madoka Magica, but I was planning on just somehow converting the design for her dress into an outfit that consists of a shirt and pants, rather than creating an entirely new design.

I'm somewhat tempted to do a genderbend of Hazama from Blazblue. I want to cosplay somebody from that game, but the girls that I want to do have outfits that would be too uncomfortable for me (i.e. Noel and her really short skirt), and the guys for the most part are too manry to crossplay. But I still want to do Hazama, mostly because I might have some fun with his character. So, to combine the way that I want to be a dude while still being a chick, I think I'll just do a genderbend. Problem solved. lD

Currently working on the armor for Fem!Captain Phoebus from The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Be using it for Halloween and possibly a convention or two, I haven't made up my mind yet. :3

I've got most of it down, but I can't decide on a short or long haired wig. I have three blonde wigs of different lengths, so I'm stuck between them. One I use for FFX-2 Rikku, one is a flipped out wig that is about shoulder length and one is almost a bob cut. Choices, choices!

I always wanted to do either this outfit or this one for a Fem Uryuu Ishida cosplay. I would like to make it for comic con 2012 when my friend makes his male rangiku outfit. I believed I be recognize more in the white outfit, but that school outfit cool too.

I've got a few genderbends I'm either working on or would like to do. I'm planning to debut my genderbend Wolfwood at Ohayocon this year. She simply wears the women's version of Wolfwood's clothes. I just need to finish the confessional. :)
Another I have ready to go except the wig is a genderbend Piro from MegaTokyo. Just jeans, t-shirt, and a plaid shirt. I just need to get the Chibi from Arda to finish her off. I just hope that Fred is able to come to Ohayocon when I get around to wearing her. It would be fun to get his opinion on her.
I have another one ready to go, but her debut depends on my hubby. It's a genderbend Murphy MacManus from The Boondock Saints. Like Wolfwood, just female clothes instead of male. But hubby really wants to do Connor and doesn't want it to seem like he's copying me when he had the idea first. He rarely does costumes, so I don't want to prevent that at all.

The one I would love to do once I have enough money to put into her is a genderbend Tuxedo Mask. I looked at Tuxedo Mask and went "What would he wear if he were a woman?" The biggest difference is that she'll be wearing an evening dress instead of the tux. Unfortunately the most expensive part is going to be making the cape followed by getting the wig.

I love the idea of doing genderbends. I run across problems when my vision of the female version looks like a lazy crossplayer (aka unbound). So I just crossplay and be done with it, most of the time.

Oh! I forgot! This (http://kirbix24.deviantart.com/#/d5b75vp) is the only FtM genderbend I've seen and it's awesome!

Well, I've designed a fem!Gamzee and a fem!Mello and fem! Matt, just I've decided that I can't do genderbent cosplays because of a mix of how I look generally guy-ish and my lack of boobs. I have been looking amongst my friends for someone that's willing to try the costumes out, but....my search will continue.

I kinda wanna gender bend Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask

Sailor Moon

I don't wanna put the hubby (who I have to talk in to being Sailor Moon) into a sailor suit so I'm thinking I'm gonna put him in a kilt instead. Have the sash be the bow color instead and have the brooch actually be his sash pin. Gonna put the little ball thingies that go on her odango on to a pin that'll go in to his hat with a very simple circlet underneath with the gem. I've got a historical boot pattern so it'll be in a darker red...matching the sash probably. He'll have a poet shirt looking thing going for him as well in white and of course a belt tohold the Kilt up.

Tuxedo Mask

Kinda thinking of going with an overcoat like the one on Simplicity 2172 ( http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-jqzooh55kOE/TtbNTraTznI/AAAAAAAAApQ/fFnMFcuwTKU/s1600/2172.jpg ) over a black skirt with a lacy, fluffy petticoat underneath, white button up shirt with a bow tie and a cape lined in red. White thigh high stalkings (or full on tights) and black heels. Top hat, mask, dark red lipstick, and a mini top hat off to the side on a wig with a high ponytail.


What do you guys think?

It's funny that I found this as I'm actually in the beginning stages of planning Fem!Genesis from Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core. In the past I also made Fem!Prussia from Hetalia (not particularly original) and Fem!Envy from Fullmetal Alchemist (let's not get into an argument about if that really counts).

And what I'd like to see genderbent: the Demon sisters from Panty & Stocking, Madoka Magica characters, Beelzebub characters and maybe also some from Lucky Star. I generally like seeing people's interpretations, even though I enjoy the canon designs.

My latest cosplay wishlist worm that I've gotten into my head is a genderbent Twilight Princess version Ganondorf. I'm having fun with sketching it right now, although really, the biggest difference is the hair and the armor fit. If I actually did it, it'd mostly be because I can't pull off crossplay. at. all. and I want to do the big menacing villain in crazy armor instead of my husband for once.

I'm toying with an idea (I posted it on here ages ago) that a mesh and gender-bend of two characters (from a fanfic+RP I did) called Pika Ketchem (original plot was that Pikachu was really female and she and Ash got merged together into a female amalgamation of the two) Basically an anthro female pikachu (possibly with black hair, possibly not) wearing Ash's outfit except cutoff jeans. I didn't get a lot of feedback on it when I posted the concept so I dropped it, but I've not given up on the idea...

I wanna cosplay a genderbent Keiichi Maebara from Higurashi! What inspired me is when I saw 99 cents store selling plastic bats, and whenever I see baseball bats that aren't like the ones people use for serious I think of Keiichi carrying around that metal bat XD Since I am a girl, and would rather stay my same gender, let's make those pants into a skirt! LOL.

Depending on whether I can get some other folks to do a team with me, I'm either going to do Lady Thor or Valkyrie this year. Either way I need many of the same basic parts (the wig and body suits are pretty much identical) and to get myself a cute scientist girlfriend.

But even if I can't get together a fem!Avengers team, I might get one or two other girls and do a Lady Loki or a Sif?

I'm currently working on lolita!Emmet, and I'm going for the genderbend route because I'm far too untalented and lazy to attempt to style his sideburns.

Most people would assume it's a genderbend anyway because I'm a girl in a skirt. v.v

03-17-2013, 01:32 PM
I had to genderbend The Medic because I physically cannot crossplay, and I am thinking of starting to work on genderbend Russia or The Engineer I still haven't decided yet.

Usually when I genderbend I only change what would be changed in the situation, typically just long hair or adding a (reasonable) skirt. That's probably why I like ChemicalAlia's designs.

I'm nearly done putting together a genderbend of Ichigo Kurosaki. It's a character I'm going to make several costumes for. So far I have planned:
1.) The school uniform, which I actually have finished
2.) The tattered shihakusho from Ichigo vs Ulquiorra
3.) The current outfit, with the zanpakuto that has the scalloped blade
4.) The female version of Franken-Ichigo from the Halloween episode

I would imagine a male Tomoko would have at least some stubble, or maybe even a full beard! I think a light stubble would look best though.

I was thinking of doing a genderbent cosplay of Faith from Mirror's Edge because it's one of my favorite video games and it wouldn't be too difficult. Or maybe cosplaying Mikuo, but he's not really OC because there's so much fan art of him he's pretty much official.

First Doctor (bathing suit)
Junpei from Megatokyo

Want to do:
Tuxedo Mask
The Dude
The Dude on The Grid (original Lebowski/TRON: Legacy mash-up)

I think that's it right now. This is going to be fun.

my friends and I were talking about gender bending Game of Thrones and decided we really wanna see Queen Roberta Baratheon: a large, awesome bold drunk woman who henpecks her poor Lannister husband

Oh gosh yes. Genderbend the whole damn cast, give us utter horrible Jannifrey Baratheon and her grim-ass old campaigner aunt Tywa Lannister butting heads with Olen Tyrell about who's going to marry Jannifrey's widower dad Cersey.

...god, I wanna see Tywa really really bad now. And Brian of Tarth, because lol.

If we do this GF claimed Petra Baelish, Mistress of Coin (doesn't that sounds sexy??) who's got a stable of male prostitutes.

The only gender-bending cosplay I have done is the Eleventh Doctor. :)
I did something similar to this, by DarlingArmy on dA:

I've decided to add Harry Dresden to my list. I've got a wig that will work really well for it. Otherwise it's a case of picking the right shirt, grabbing jeans, boots, coat, staff, and shield bracelet. :D

A good friend of mind says I should be lady!11 one day because I have this lovely (female-form tailored) tweed jacket that I wear just about every day during the months that have an R in them.

Just decided on a Starlord genderbend. Not changing the original costume at all, other than the hair.

I adore Rule 63 for its character design aspects, and am currently in the planning stages of femme!Gambit (http://preciousterrestrials.tumblr.com/post/98940623896). Just gotta persuade my big brother to be Wolverine...

I'm planning to do a fem!Sora for Halloween, with my boyfriend as Riku. We've got a good OrgXII coat (it needs to be washed though) and I'm planning what is essentially amounting to a Trickster (from Homestuck) version of Halloween Town Sora. I'm going to do bright acid green, purple, and orange clothing with a multicolored tutu skirt, a candy-shaped hair clip, and a black underbust corset. I'm going to keep some small details the same, like having black leggings with red ribbon wrapped around them, plus I'll have the trademark crown necklace, so hopefully I'll be recognizable as Sora!

I'd like to see Dragonball Genderbends..But ones that are actually trying..You know, not just a girl in dress with the symbol on it..Like something that actually shows i's the character..Like maybe a Super Saiyan (from here on, SSJ) with spiked hair, but it get's long..Like normal looking SSJ1/2 hair on top but then it get's longer..Like what it might look like is Bulla went SSJ..That'd be neat to see a female Goku done that way..

^I've actually seen pictures of a girl that did that. It looked awesome but I don't remember exactly where...

Also, I'm going to be cosplaying female Kaneki from Tokyo Ghoul tomorrow. :)

That was probably the SSJ3 Goku one..
You mean this:

Because that's PROBABLY the best Goku genderbend I've ever seen..And her picture is extremely well known.
But this is more what I see a lot (sorry, whoever this is):

Now there's nothing wrong with that person doing it that way, but seeing as this is a "what would you like to see" thread, I can see I'd like to see less of that..It's fun to just go around in because you like the character or whatever, kinda like wearing a "Saiyan armor" print tee-shirt, but yea, I wanna see ones where people actually TRY..

Love the first one's wig.
However, she's kind of fallen into the "female=belly shirt and teeny miniskirt" fallacy.

Even so, she still put a crap ton of effort into the cosplay..Even though it's a cropped short and mini skirt, that still takes more skill than buying a printed dress or shirt and wearing shorts with it and not doing anything else and calling yourself Fem!Goku..That;'s just one of those "I'm expressing I like X Character" not "I'm going to cosplay as a female version of X Character". But yea..Damn that wig is awesome..

Second one looks like she just doesn't have the sewing skills to make a complicated cosplay, so she's going for something loose-fitting, easily recognizable, and comfortable.
You gotta remember not everyone has the same skill set.

I knew this kinda reply was coming..That isn't the point I'm trying to make..This is a "what do you want to see" thread, so I'm using that as an example of what I normally see VS what i WANT to see done more. I don't care if someone wants to wear something that took no skill to do, whether they have that skill or not, that's not the point..They can wear that all they want, good for them, I'm not saying they should put more effort into it either..I'm talking about in general, I'd like to see anyone, whether they upgrade a closet cosplay style or just wanna do a really skilled looking one, is someone anyone that does more skilled looking ones. I see tons of male goku's at cons that have extreme amounts of skill put into it, I wanna see some gender bends do the same.

I also see tons of non-genderbent cosplays which haven't had any effort put in.
I think "amount of effort put in" and "genderbent or not" don't really correlate.

I'm doing a genderbent Kain from Blood Omen 2 and was trying to avoid the 'slutty vampire' stereotype so basically am making the male version's armour with high heeled boots and designing a female-appropriate breastplate to cover me up somewhat. I'm aiming for fight-me rather than bite-me as most vampire-type costumes tend to go down the 'ohai I'm sexy' route and well, I'm 33 years old and that just isn't me.

I will post the sketch I've done when it's actually finished (will take a few more days as I'm off on holiday tomorrow) so would love some feedback on if I've managed to successfully create a convincing female vampire warrior type.
