View Full Version : A new challenge to female crossplayers: Exposed chest

02-17-2004, 04:58 AM
I'm thinking of doing a Sanosuke costume for Otakon, but I want it to be as accurate as I can get it without getting arrested. So far all the ideas I have and the problems I have.

Ending the bandages just above my real breasts and painting on man-nipples, but there are several problems with that. 1: there's the chance my real ones might pop out, 2: they'll be too high, 3: I have to do a real good job at pulling off looking like a man, or at first glance people are going to think they're my real girl-boobs

Just covering them up completely: the whole problem with accuracy, but so far, this is my best choice

sex-change: NO!

If you feel unsure and uncomfortable about that, then I suggest you don't do it. You're trying to be so accurate that are just pressing yourself too much, and that's not so good. Crossplay is also a lot of fun and joy, not only a big challenge. Think about it.

I think you might try for a Sano-ette costume instead... or be a completely bandaged Sanosuke... meaning your whole chest is bandaged.

How about binding and covering it with some kind of latex moulded "chest plate"?

I'm no chemist but I know there are people making full body latex bodysuits. You might want ot research that option.

This is actually covered in the first couple of pages of the "sticky" thread on the Crossplay board. http://forums.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=15709
