Here's a photo of my from my last convention with a wig, binding, makeup, the whole nine yards: http://i815.photobucket.com/albums/z...SC_0032U-1.jpg

Frankly, I'm curious because while that picture made my own grandmother do a double take, a kid at school saw it today and said that I look nothing like a guy and just proved his point about how I could never play a male character for my English class' Shakespeare unit.

Sorry that they are all about my face. I am currently trying to work with makeup to look more manly.

Quinn: I do think you pass, and you were correct in labeling him as a douche. Unless he pointed out anything specifically, chances are he just said that so he could get the part.
When people are aware that someone is female, or if you're looking at your own picture, the more feminine traits stand out. Small hands, small feet, eyebrow shape, the way you hold yourself, things like that. You're a fine crossplayer, and he's just an ass.

Akune: Link is a girly man, so I'd say you pass for him. If you want to do a more masculine character, I'd suggest not making your eyebrows so, what's the word... Shapey on the bottom. Pointy. Do a search for men's faces on Google and you'll notice that pretty much all of the guys' eyebrows are round on the bottom.
I don't know if I'm making any sense. Please tell me if I'm unclear.

Looks good to me but I don't know the character. No criticisms but you could try a little extra eyebrow shaping if you are willing to do that (but it's not vital or anything), and something I might be tempted to try playing with is using lip liner to fill out your bottom lip more?
Hey I see you're going to Acen, me too! Maybe I will see you there.

Dunno if they are any good though
Those are cute, I don't know much about Aristrocrat though. The gothic/kuro outfit looks nice, although I might suggest sticking to flats instead of heels if you are taller.
I can't really see your profile pic very well though because my screen is really small.

So I posted a little while ago seeing if I could pass but I didn't have a wig or anything at the time. So I wanted to post this time to see if it's better. I want for people to look at me and go yup that's a dude and not question my gender. I still don't think I'm quite there on my makeup yet and I didn't even try to do body today but here are some face shots.

Okay, I'm getting ready to do Akihiko from Persona 3. I don't have his costume and a binder yet. Just a wig and some make up I bought specificly to make myself look more masculine. I am naturally a female and was wondering if I look passable? Just from these head and shoulder pictures. I think I may have forgotten to crop out part of my boobs in one unless I didn't upload those but tell me what you think, any suggestion or any thing would be great! Also, ignore my wig, I ordered a new one. I wanted to make the wig as short as possible but I cut it too short so my natural dark hair pokes out in some areas.

Before (my hair isn't normally curly but I guess it probably doesn't matter lol)

After (with make up and wig)

Sootyowl: I don't know if you pass, probably would be able to tell if the pictures were larger/clearer, but a blind look had me wondering which way you were trying to cross. Whatever that says.


Kawaii Pocky: Passing is going to be tough for you because you have large eyes, a small mouth, and a round face. Perfect anime girl proportions, not an easy fit for dudes.
Are you wearing black eyeliner? I have a terrible eye for makeup, but if you are, I'd suggest switching to brown when crossplaying. I've heard it works a lot better than black, though I've never tried it myself. I'd also suggest not going quite so heavy on the lip makeup, if you need it at all. You lucked out there, I think.

It is brown eye liner. I tried blending it so it wasn't so dark. It's hard finding matte eyeshadow. I'm gonna maybe see if I can find some lighter matte brown eyeshadow. This was really just a test run.

Um, well, I really wanted to cosplay Deidara. ^^;

He's pretty androgynous, so hopefully I could pass? I haven't ever cosplayed, so I don't have any example photos except for my regular self.

Do think it would be okay? I'm a girl and have dark-ish skin (a ever present golden tan).

I would get a wig/colored contacts of course, I was just worried about having girly features/skin color....

As I said, I'm terrible at identifying makeup. Good luck with finding what you need, mate.

Okay, my NEW Akihiko wig. I think it helps a lot, but I didn't do any masculine make up or any thing. Just regular make up. I was wearing my jacket and scarf I usually wear out and I thought it helped to hide my curvy figure a bit. Experimented with posing but I dunno, I'm not a master at this or any thing.

Close Ups:

http://i1134.photobucket.com/albums/...3/CAM00616.jpg

http://i1134.photobucket.com/albums/...3/CAM00617.jpg

Full Body:
http://i1134.photobucket.com/albums/...3/CAM00624.jpg

http://i1134.photobucket.com/albums/...3/CAM00626.jpg

There's lots of pics but the poses are pretty similar. If you want to look at more of them just look at the album. Basically I tried slouching, standing with my legs apart, standing at an angle to hide my bust since I don't have my binder yet. Let me know if it's atleast an improvement, going to be ordering my binder next so I can experiment more once I get it.

@Kawaii Pocky: I think you are going great so far! The posing looks good. (You're definelty right about the coat! I thought you had no girl chest!) I think if you do some male make-up, you'll look even better!

Alrighty, I'm very curious about this. Here are various examples of wig/makeup from some newer photos:

http://chibierwin.tumblr.com/post/40...week-ive#notes

http://chibierwin.tumblr.com/post/40...ke-being#notes

http://chibierwin.tumblr.com/post/40...et-cosplay-but

http://chibierwin.tumblr.com/post/39...hat-else#notes

And I have absolutely no makeup in this shot, but can someone tell me how my binding looks?

http://chibierwin.tumblr.com/post/38...re-from-fruits

These are some of the best in my opinion, but I'm still fairly new to the full-time/serious cosplay scene in general, so any help is greatly appreciated! (Female to male, by the way
