Anyway, all tips are appreciated!

So this is what I look like normally or as a female character:

Wow, I really can't give suggestions for Karkat for that's far past the point of passing. You did well in the Mukuro one as well, but I would suggest changing the way you define your eyes a bit (make the upper lashline look flatter and not so round).

Also, 5'10"?! I'm 5'7" o_O.

I'm really nervous, but uh did I pass as a girl?
Thanks for the compliment! Just out of curiosity, what did you think about the differences in particular?

As for your crossplay, I would say that your facial shape works well for female (and the switch from black to pink was a good call in my opinion). I think you may have used a little too much eyeshadow (this is more of a personal thing, though, as I personally believe in emphasizing the lashlines over all else when it comes to cosplaying. Circle lenses are optional, but false eyelashes would do A LOT (See the comparison pic I posted) to enhance crossplaying male-to-female. I would also suggest lip gloss over lipstick as the emphasis on lips should not detract from the eyes (Again, my personal preference). As LluviaSarcasm suggested, it can't hurt to add a little more shape to the dress, but this is also personal preference. I would also suggest white eyeliner, but I have no idea how it's supposed to work, so I'm going to back away from that subject for the time being o_O. You definitely pass for the most part, but I'm sure you can definitely make for better! Really well done for a first crossplay, nonetheless!
