Nice piccies, Shonen_Star! Yes, makeup does wonders!

Dilandau requires eyeliner for that Esca-eyes look, so I have to rely on the rest of the makeup... and posing so the mommy-hips are NOT obvious.

<~~~ There's my crossplay avatar / almost the same as my bio pic... :p More crossplay pics?

The "Yaoi Pic" from AX '02 - with my husband, heh heh...

Hee hee - sometimes people who have only seen me at cons with a wig on get real surprised when they finally see me without one! :p "I thought you were a blond."

Squeee! Koumori, you're in Boston! I'm in Waltham XD
..the ghetto little brother of Boston... or not really...

Maybe I'll see you at AnimeBoston... I wanna try to do a punk schoolgirl costume... I don't even wanna post a pic of my last attempt at a schoolgirl... ugh, didn't quite work out. I'll try harder this time though

But yeah, that's a great squall costume! See? Like I said in another thread...girls are just much better at crossplaying characters who are androgynous or altogether feminine in nature.,..

Aie! Boston! I used to live in Burlington / Arlington / Lowell and we had friends in Waltham we used to hang out with all the time!! (They eventually moved to Billerica...) We used to buy all our manga at a comic store on Moody Street, the name of which escapes me now...

We're planning on hitting the 2004 SF Worldcon in Boston - Noreascon. It will be damned pricey, though. ;_;

Katan and I had a discussion about your gender at one point. *laughs* Which I guess means you really make a good boy! I'm the one who won the prize and guessed right. ^__^

I am hoping if I get my victim for Fuuma to agree, that I will try to make a somewhat convincing Kamui with him. I definitely will have to bind for that.

soshi
03-10-2003, 02:47 PM
some people mistook me for a guy in my Soshi costume, and I didn't bind myself down or anything oO; I think it was due to my height and the fact that all my features were obscured.
http://www.cosplaylab.com/cosplayers/costumes/detail.asp?costumeid=4881

I think a big part of telling someone's gender is their lips - like, Shonen_Star, I could tell the first picture you posted was definately a girl because of the lips. ^^ besides lips, it's body curves.. hips and chests.

Lynch - girl, but makes a convincing guy - hey, where's more of those great Riku pics?
Shiki - is Shiki and I won't pin down to whatever Shiki might not agree with ^___^
Hikaruchan - Whoa, Zelgadis especially looks like a guy!
Soshi, and Ava's lineups of people - So much makeup and clothing I wouldn't dare guess (Ava's hug pic looks like maybe girl hugging a boy who can easily convince otherwise)

These are all great pictures...I'm doing a Gackt Mizerable at Ota this year, which is what prompted me to check into this thread. I love Lynch's costumes the most! :D

Here's me from the Harry Potter skit at this last NekoCon...I *think* I pulled off a boy reasonably well...but then again I don't think that I have a very oh-so-feminine face to begin with :). I did have people mistaking me for a boy at the con though...I'm still not sure whether to act flattered or offended. ^_^*

^____^

You make a really excellent Migel, even if costume = sauna. (Gatti's costume = sauna too (Gatti was absolutely dyin' at Yaoi-con!), so while I really like leather (I avoid vinyl when I can), I'm really hesitant to wear it in warm weather or indoors...)

Gatti: guy or girl? :p

Be flattered. That's a great Harry Potter - you look like a boy there - but your avatar looks very, very GIRL.

A little thinner on the brows (so they don't look so low down), a little heavier on the lipstick = "how to get prettier". ^___^

yeah Koumori, I was going to say the same thing about Karisu-sama... I am so sued to seeing her avatar that she looked like she was in a costume because it looked so different to me. lol.

great pics everyone. I donna have any. lol

Karisu-sama
03-12-2003, 08:33 PM
If my own stupid hair could ever look as good as my Dilandau wig (no chance in hell, it's way too thin!), I'd chop it and bleach it in a heartbeat. :p

I'll never have thick hair - on the other hand, this means I can wear all kinds of real short wigs and people keep thinking they're real :p *tickled pink*

I was in the theatrical supply store the other day trying on a real short wig - and someone actually walked by and had to ASK if it was a wig, or did I actually dye my own hair that color (it's got black roots leading out to flame red tips.) o.O

And Shounen_Star, you is mad sexy. :F

Karisu-sama
03-12-2003, 09:59 PM
Eeee, your Squall reminds me A LOT of Nessa in Chrissy's Squall costume at AM - I had to do a double-take on the face! ^__^

You're right. I probably could have done with less eyebrows. I did have on cool lipstick though. It shined in the light, and the camera just didn't pick it up. BTW, how painful is it to get your eyebrows waxed? I only get my uni waxed on a regular bases, but I've heard that it hurts a lot in other areas, like above the eyelids.

HuongStar
03-13-2003, 03:55 PM
People have always said I have masculine features so I figured I'd try my first crossplay. I didn't have time to bind my chest so my shirt & jacket look a bit odd. @_@

I have a couple more crossplays planned in the future and I hope to be a bit more convincing. :thumbsup: It is liberating to not have to worry about make-up so much!

I've only crossplayed really girly characters (ie. Nuriko), so I haven't had the chance to try and do something really convincing yet.

The only time I've ever made myself into a convincing guy was to sneak into my boyfriend's all male dorm at his college after visiting hours. :D

The closest I can get to looking like a guy right now:

U guys? girls? do great crossplay unfortunately i can never pull of being female, i could try but it wouldnt convince anyone im to, i guess the word i use is male.

Karisu-sama
03-28-2003, 03:13 AM
I REALLY <3 my photographer!!! :D :D

He was testing new studio equipment, so why not finish off with crossplay instead of boring regular still-life stuff, etc.? Not enough time for full costuming (film had to be in for processing by 5), but here are some of the results:

http://www.dragonsgate.net/cosplay/crossplay/IMG023DLrose.jpg
http://www.dragonsgate.net/cosplay/crossplay/IMG004DLside.jpg

My sister thought I ought to go off to the SF Tenderloin district & try to pick up guys, heh... but even though the leather jacket hides a lot, I think my hips would probably still out me as a girl without a good angle. I'd need a trench coat or something.

We were arguing over whether it's Tekken's Lee Chaolan or Dilandau in "civvies" (before the scar).

Hey Karisu-sama.. where did you get that wig? if you don't mind me asking.. cause it is very nice.. and I need some really good boy wigs.

Nyoko
03-28-2003, 12:34 PM
guy or girl? (the middle person )

Thats the only crossplay costume that Ive made that I was ever told that I looked not like my gender...oO what ever they say cuse I just dont see it... ~.~ so anyway, I am no where as good at polling it off as you all...

Karisu-sama
03-28-2003, 01:19 PM
Kas: http://www.paulayoung.com. What I actually did was I found a wig that was absolutely perfect, except it didn't have the long bangs in front - so I cut up another wig that had longer hair and sewed the pieces in.

Nyoko: yeah, I can see it. ^___^ Cute lil' bishie Kenshin! He's such a pretty guy... *sigh* (I <3 Kenshin)

Anyways, Awesome pics!!! You look adorable....... for a mom^^

Karisu-sama
03-28-2003, 02:55 PM
Setsuna22: Thanks! My fantastic photographer = my husband. It's his extra side job, for love not money - and yes, he will do reasonable cost photo shoots for cosplayers. (And obviously he's crossplayer-friendly! ^^) We'll probably be bringing the equiment to any cons we go to (most of it is portable), but we're kinda confined to California at this time :( Next up: maybe Fanime (but we don't have a room there, which could mean no backdrop setup space), definitely AX, and Ani-Magic (where I think he's volunteering for the post-masquerade photography.)

Setsuna22
03-28-2003, 03:23 PM
>>Shucks! As you are confined to the gloriousness of California, I am also confined.... unfortunatlely, to the rotteness of Ohio... Oh well, I still think that's really cool! Why can't you be my mom^^

Anyways, just a random ? for anyone. I am a boi, so if I cosplay as Mad Hatter (Belial) from AS, does that make me a crossplayer? I'll post the pic up after I buy the makeup! It looks really good so far, And I do kinda look like a girl... (not that I'm trying to, It's just the wig makes me look more femme) also, I don't cross-play well, seeing as how I am 6'3 and with boots, I am 6'7^^

ahh what would i give to be 6'3''

Karisu-sama
03-29-2003, 02:50 AM
Lucy Lawless, LOL ^^ - I've been getting that for a LOOOOONG time - guess we look like we could be sisters. :p

When "Xena" first came on, we got a frantic call from a friend who told my husband "Turn on the TV! Your wife's on TV!!" My oldest kid (when she was 3 or 4) once saw a publicity photo of her, and pointing to it, said "Mommy!!"

She's a couple inches taller 'n me, though. :p We've both got blue eyes, but MY long dark hair with bangs is real (Lucy's really a blond.)

Funny enough, I never have cosplayed Xena yet, though she's my type of character...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Let's find a way to stretch L^3 to perfect Legolas height! ^____^ or make her cosplay with REALLY short hobbits! ^____^ Awwww, L, you crossplay really, really well, even at your height - aren't you taller than my husband?

Mekou

Karisu-sama!!! =D lol you do kinda remind me of Xena. Well your non-cosplay pic does. Your Dilandau costume is one of THE BEST and the wig ROCKS!

T_T I tried crossplaying.....I'm not very convincing. I'm too feminin (sp?) lol. A lot of people say I have girl eyes. ~_~ Even my dentist! (who is a girl, btw) People say they want them. >_< *covers eyes protectively*

Whoo..off topic there! My hair is really thick. X_x So wigs have been a problem. Also..I'm trying to grow my hair to where it was when I was 13 (past my bum!) So I think my wig problem is going to get worse. X_x

To everyone who has posted pics in this thread: \(^o^)/ Omegosh! Such talents! Such..convincing-ness! Everyone here is great!

heheh...I think lack of sleep is getting to me.... *tries to bash it away with a stick* >_<

I currently have a crossplay in the works! ^o^ But I hardly think I'm going to fool anyone. -_-

Nah, nah!! I certainly wouldn't say you're wasting your time! ^^ Good crossplay does not have to mean one can actually "pass"!! (This thread was just about people who might possibly be able to sometimes pass for the other gender, depending on costume, makeup and circumstances. )

Menchi, that first outfit is kakkoi. Go-chan! XD Although.. do I see some facial hair there? o.o *l*
I think you could pass for a girl if you wanted to, I seriously do.. it *would* take makeup, though. ^^ So once you've successfully dolled yerself up, I think you'll make for quite the cute crossplayer. :D Just my piddly lil opinion.

Menchi
03-30-2003, 12:32 AM
i am gonna solve that facial hair prob soon as i get some special make up for it or...better yet...NAIR ^^. but any opinion matters i think. i didnt get a chance to make up at al lthat con sadly. thank ya for the commpliment...i am amazed that ppl would be positive commentin with such a strange habit for cons XD

Karisu-sama
03-30-2003, 03:11 AM
Actually, yeah, Menchi: deal with the facial hair and do a nice makeup job and it will really enhance the crossplay! ^^ I think you've got some really good poses going there, too. It's very good feminine body language for the costumes. I could definitely see that second one as "girl" with the lighting too.

Nah, nah, dun worry about the "strange habit" for cons! You are not alone; among your gender or mine! Where else do we get to do crossplay, for characters we really like who just happen to be a different gender? IRL I'm just a nice boring PTA mom!

Go for it! ^^

I even asked a transgendered person what's the best way to get rid of facial hair and I was expecting some sort of elaborate technique. I was quite shocked when she or he said, "There's no easy way to get rid of hair. Just shave":D The problem with that is how do you deal with the 5 o'clock shadow? There's no way around it.

I've tried waxing, cremes, and shaving and I agree shaving is best for the face, although using depilatory cremes has it's advantages for removing body hair, especially the legs. I use "Magic powder" and it's good for removing hair in a non-irratating manner but you won't get a close cut. However getting a "close cut" isn't that much of an issue with body hair as opposed to the face.

don't bother with Nair it's not strong enough. Go for the "Magic powder"IMO:D

Shave as late in the day as you can get away with, and hope your makeup is thick enough to cover 5 o'clock shadow, LOL...

All the MTF surgically transgendered people I know (and I know several) have opted for electrolysis - which is PERMANENT removal. No chance of EVER growing a beard or a mustache ever again. If they will be women for the remainder of their lives, that makes perfect sense...

Personally I would prefer even if men would never have facial hair, but that's just me. :D *glares at husband if he were to even dare contemplate growing a mustache and/or beard*

I've only been mistaken for a guy once, but I wasn't even crossplaying. I was wearing a pair of cargoes, a t-shirt and had my long hair stuffed under a bucket hat. My friend thought it was one of our male friends. But it was probably only because she saw me when I was looking down. I don't think I have a very masculine face; it's too round. I got a good laugh out of that though. I actually sort of WANT to be mistaken for the opposite gender at times, my mannerisms have always been more guy-like than feminine. Traditional girly things (not to offend anyone) like make-up, form-fitting clothing, dresses and the like have always made me go, "Ick". But I've yet to find a male character to crossplay that would make it easier to be mistaken for a guy. :rolleyes:

This is something I've noticed, more about myself then others. I don't know if any of you crossplayers have this delema, but I sure do.

Basically that if you crossplay so much, when you dress in a female costume for once, you end up looking like a guy in a dress. (this happened when I once cosplayed Armitage).

Me as a guy:

Me as a girl:

I don't know, not exactly a femmy there.

Anyone else have this delema? Or heard of it?

You can try going to a library to scan it or have a friend with a scanner scan it for you.

I don't really have an good crossplay photos yet. I'm working on it...

But one way me and my friend Jamie usually go by to tell if it's a guy or girl is quite simple. Just look for an adamn's apple.

Except... we did have this little problem at picnic once involving a certain Cloud Strife >_O

Jamie: ... *eyeing a Cloud warily*
me: ... what's wrong? O_O
JAmie: ... he has no adamns apple...
me: ... then it's girl...
Jamie: ... I don't know... sounds like a man... *continues to eye the Cloud*

We didn't find out until after we gave him a hug ^-^;

Me: *feels his chest* S'cuse me Mr. Cloud... EH! Jamie it's be a he!

So yeah! just a tip when looking at photos, look for an adamn's apple. If it's really obvious then it's a boy... if not... well then you're on your own. lol

Sister: Erm...it's a guy in a tie. So?
Me: ^_^ actualy, it's a GIRL in a tie!

XD I knew you'd appreciate it. Of course, then I had to explain to my sister about the "greatest compliment you can give a crossplayer" but she always thought her big sis was weird, so I didn't have many problems. ^_^

Hee! This is great! I took the opportunity to show the same picture to my brother also. Conversation:

Me: Look! It's a cool costume!
Brother: ...it's a suit....and tie....
Me: But it's cool! See??
Brother: Wait...(he knows a little bit about me in this area. ^^;; I showed him some Dir En Grey pictures once.) is he a male or female?
Me: XD
Brother: Hey, is that a doll?!
Me: ^______^ *laughing*
Brother: *scrutinizing picture* That's a doll!
Me: *cracking up*

You should seriously think about going to a con like that, and carrying a sign that says "guess my gender." XD

Anja - you reminded me of one of my friends who's a guy, so that kind of tipped me off but I did have to look pretty carefully. Yes, definitely work on the sideburns and maybe try to make your lips look a bit fully by outlining the edges of your lips, so you're actually drawing on skin.

Renegade, that might actually work for you too. You do look like 100% female to me, but you could also try and enhance your eyes with a little eyeshadow as well.
