Heero Yuy Cosplay Help?

I've gotten the outfit complete and such already, but I have a bit of a problem that I'd like help with for when I actually wear the costume in con or elsewhere... It's a personal matter (biological, I'm a male cosplayer.), just a warning beforehand. Since Heero wears tight spandex shorts, they fit tightly around and somewhat expose the form of my groin. Is there any way I can remedy it to not have it prone to this? It would save me a great deal of anxiety and prevent embarrassing situations wearing it later, thanks to anyone that offers advice to resolve the matter.

Also, I wasn't sure where else to post the thread since there wasn't a general 'help' category, and it's not applicable to crossplay.

lol no problem! I wasn't even sure if that would be a suitable answer, since I've never had to deal with that particular groin issue XD

xDD You should have seen the look on my face, I was completely dumbfounded for not even thinking of that. Much like this. http://media.comicvine.com/uploads/7...glip_super.jpg But yes yes, you saved me a lot of trouble.

I think either suggestion would work. I'd never realized how potentially problematic Heero's shorts are. Eek. Heero's the best.

I think there's a topic in the crossplay section about tucking in as well that you might find useful?

Er.. tucking is for men who are dressing as women. Not men who are dressing as men. <<; Lol.

I was considering that option too, but it wouldn't be faithful to the original outfit. Thanks for the help, though!

Indeed, I tried the first and it worked just fine. Heero is the best.

Yeah, but it could also be handy to avoid embarassing bulges in Heero's spandex shorts as well. Tucking doesn't have to be reserved for cross dressers.

Personally, I just wouldn't wear that tight of shorts. I think the tightness of his shorts is a negligible detail as long as they aren't noticeably baggy.

But, if you want to go that route, a cup would be advisable even if you didn't care about showing. No need to be uncomfortable all day and a cup would make sure have space to be comfortable.
