Universal? "Can I Pass?" thread

Ok, we are getting a super prevalence of these can I pass threads, and I realize this one could potentially add to the problem if this isn't executed correctly. But I'd like this to end up being a central "Can I pass/Should I crossplay/Do I REALLY look like a girl/guy?" etc. threads. This can even extend to the "Who should I crossplay" type threads I also see growing in popularity. There is no need to have 5000 of these types of threads floating about, and I think there are people who will agree.

Of course, if this idea doesn't gain ground, this thread is pointless and should be deleted.

This thread seems useful ^^. TLSHIN your links arent working... or maybe it's just me >.< .
I too was wondering the same thing. Before I put too much effort into trying, should I even worry about being passable?

Suggestions, comments? Or perhaps should I just quit trying so much XD. Thanks!

There wasn't. You weren't out of line, it just seems to make more sense to have a central thread. Also, your links indeed aren't working, so...yeah

Is this aided or natural? If it's natural, I think with a wig and a bit of make up you'll do alright. If you are actually doing a little bit of work, well, I'd say a wig is a must anyway (the way hair frames a face can do dramatic things to appearance), and you might want to use more eyeliner, foundation, and possibly mascara if you aren't, and I don't think I saw lipstick, so that would probably help, as well as lip gloss.

If you are a natural female, then you pass very well as a guy and I hope that's not insulting, lol.

Spinni: Use some makeup (bronzer) to define your jawline more and give yourself a little more of an eyebrow, that should help a lot. You already look pretty good, but makeup does wonders. (:

TLSHIN: With makeup I believe you could. Try some foundation, eyeliner, and mascara and see how that looks for your base makeup. Maybe if you posted a picture of that you could get some ideas for where to go from there.

D: You are gifted. Really, you have feminine features, and yet you can totally pull off the 'softer' bishounen. FFF, insert jealous rage here.

As for me, I'm pretty sure I don't 'pass' in technical terms. I guess the photos I have don't exactly help in that regard, as the guy I crossplayed is very... effeminate. BUT! Let's see what I have.

Normally:
Photo 1
Photo 2

Crossplay:
Photo 1
Photo 2 [binding fail lol]
