Crossplaying in a leotard?

Hi,
I have a problem. I am going to attempt to crossplay as Raven from Teen titans this fall, but I have no idea how to actually look good even though I'm wearing a leotard. Any suggestions as to how I should go about this? And also is it even a good idea to wear a leotard?
Thanks

Leotard is probably one of the easier things to wear for crossplay because it will hide the padding. I would suggest one leotard over the actual just to smooth down any lines if your padding/shaping things have seams pressing through the fabric.

So I should be able to hide everything?

Yes, especially if tights are worn under the leotard. Sometimes flesh-tone tights if the character doesnt normally wear tights. Its a trick I learned in ballet Everything was hidden!

I'm actually thinking of something similar. So I'm kinda wondering the same things you probably are..This is what I wanna do:

Would you guys suggest the same things? I have a hard time wearing pantyhose, they never seem to fit right (I think they are just too small, but they all say one size so I never know..)

One size pantyhoses never fit right I suggest you try ones made for bigger legs. Just My Size makes them and they are a little expensive but they fit much better. Welovecolor's tights are also good and come in some skin tone colors.

I'm pretty sure the ones I bought said "plus size one fits all" too..lol I guess the only thing to do is get new ones haha. I ripped mine on accident anyway..But thank you for the suggestion

Any ideas on that red though? I can't tell if I should use a shiny pleather one 9which I could probably just make) or if I chould use a red stretchy breathable one out of normal material they are made of, like lycra or whatever

be careful with a leotard if you have a long torso it will never fit right. Im 6'2" with a long torso and they never fit right. Stockings are good but I prefer thigh highs with garters. You may want to add a skirt or belt or something to cover your front or strategically wear the cape to do so. Very difficult to hide the front. It can be done though if you are dedicated.
