I'm not a pro with makeup, so I wouldn't be able to give you any tips on that, but anyway to make your face 'softer' whether it be a light ivory liquid or cream foundation would be a plus.

Anyway, I'm not entirely sure I know what I'm talking about, so take it with a grain of salt, yeah? You're doing good ^-^
Thanks for the compliments and advice! Yeah, I've tried tweezing at multiple instances, but I can't seem to get the shape I'm going for every time after taking out some hairs here and there. After looking back on some past photos, I feel like maybe I should switch to a lighter shade of foundation, but I don't want to end up looking unnaturally pale. I might look into cream foundations, though.

Well looking at your past pictures, you did improve alot. I clearly see some sexiness on that face. My suggestion, try using blue eye shadow, that would complete it.
Rimmel Kohl Liners are pretty decent for their price. They're readily available at drugstores, so they shouldn't be too hard to obtain for you, I assume. If you are looking into longer false eyelashes, I would suggest either ordering online from vendors overseas or visit stores that stock up on Asian cosmetics. I recommend getting some with a criss-cross pattern for that cute, voluminous look (Speaking of which, I need to get some for myself soon for I have misplaced/lost the pair I had). As for lip gloss, black lip gloss doesn't quite make sense. Maybe try something that's a little less red (light pink is good)?

Sexiness, huh? I was trying to go for more on the cuteness factor seeing the character, though. I did have a friend do my makeup for a "sexy" version of the same character (especially with the use of more blue/teal eyeshadow), but I personally would have preferred something more toned down. Oh well, guess I got to continue working on it. More test pics to come at a later time (and hoping to score more on cuteness over sexiness).

i am a total noob still xD
thankz
Not really much of an expert, but I would say something along the lines of this, this or this. Even better if they're black. I think googling ''hoop skirt'' or ''long petticoat'' will do wonders for you. ;D

First off, hi! I'm new here. I was planning on cosplaying human!Prismo next year at Katsucon and just wanted to know if I pass as a boy. Notice I didn't say man, because I'm only 5 foot even and I highly doubt anyone would mistake me for a full grown man, haha.

But here's me normally.

And here's my mediocre attempt at being a guy.
http://i48.tinypic.com/fu020l.jpg
http://i49.tinypic.com/euq1xf.jpg

These are my girly clothes thrown together to make something at least a little guyish looking. I didn't use any sort of makeup, so maybe that would help? Thanks for any input!

Firstly, you're very pretty! Just thought I'd get that out there

As for crossplaying, I think you've got the body language down, and that's half the battle. For a more masculine look, definitely thicken up those eyebrows! I'd recommend filling it in below your current eyebrow line because men's eyebrows tend to be closer down towards their eyes. For facial contouring, I'd recommend using a darker color right beneath your cheekbones and near your temples because from a quick Google search human!Prismo looks like he'd be a pretty lanky fellow with hollow cheekbones and drawn facial features.

Also a clearer shot of your face would be really helpful. The two you have look dramatically different and I'm not sure if it's the trick of the light/camera or "before" and "after" pics.

So, this is the very first time I crossplay and I'm not pretty sure I pass as a boy! xD
Now, I'm crossplaying Yue from Card Captor Sakura, who is slender and his features are very thin... so, what do you think?

face:

Seems like Yue's facial features are already feminine. I'd say you can pass, however keep in mind that your lashes, brow shape, and well...lips make you look feminine, so when doing makeup be sure to rough up the those features especially.

I only have about one photo of myself (I'll post the link below) and I'm not really trying to pass as a specific character, just wondering if I could pass as a girl. However, there are characters I do have in mind, you can refer to my post on the "Crossplay list" thread if you'd like.

TheseTwoPeople: Oh wow, definitely though you were a girl crossplaying as a guy until I read your post!! I think you could pass very easily!

TheseTwoPeople: You definitely pass. Amazingly so. Fantastic job.

JayR: Assuming FtM, I think you could pass. Just make sure to keep feminine gestures to a minimum. The hand-covering-face thing made it kind of hard to tell and I generally assume female if that kind of gesture is used.
Also your first picture gave me serious hair envy.
