This MAY belong in the crossplay section, but I'm not sure. It involves an original character of mine, so I thought I'd post it here...
Anyway, I've been trying to organize a local LARP that takes place in a sci-fi setting. Other than planning and organizing things, I also thought I'd get involved as a minor character. I'm the creative type though, and tend to go overboard with making characters. SO I make this character, right? I do some concept art
and get to work with making my costume even though I haven't even got the LARP anywhere close to actually happening yet...and I'm already coming across problems.
I can't make female characters well, and crossplay frequently, so it came pretty naturally to me to make a male (or seemingly male) LARP character. To make things a little easier, I even decided to make them of unknown gender and only seeming male. That way I could get away with an androgynous look.
Unfortunately, the costume consists of mostly spandex. I've gained some weight, and am VERY short and compact anyway. I also have these MONSTER HIPS. Needless to say, I was pretty much still looking VERY female. Er...here, just look for yourself:
So yeah, I was going for a badass look like this
...and I just ended up looking like a dork. Is there any way I can save this costume? what can I do to achieve a more masculine or at least androgynous look? HELP PLEASE! D: Thanks!
