Yoko cosplay thoughts

Hello, Gurren Lagann fandom. I wanted to crossplay as Yoko, but I wondered a few things..I'm not what you'd call "in shape", so idk how well this is doing to go lol

Anyway, I had a question about the chest..since I'm male, I was wondering if anyone knows a way to wear her bikini top with false breasts? I know she wears her top with lots of cleavage, and even the bottoms of her breasts poking out. Is it even possible to do any of that with fake breasts?

For material, what are your thoughts on non-vinyl material? I have a pair of black shorts I cut from black pants, but I'm not sure they will lol nice enough..and I don't have the bikini, but I was thinking of just getting a normal one from Wal-Mart but it obviously isn't vinyl..

Also are those basically just chop sticks in her hair?

I think that's all for now. Thanks

For the bracelets, you could find plain wooden bracelets on Etsy, paint them black. The semi-spheres could be sculpted onto the bracelets, or maybe trimmed down gashapon capsules with some painting.
I think chopsticks would do. Adding some Mod Podge to wooden chopsticks should give it a nice gloss.
Also, what material are you using for the shorts? The bikini top doesn't look very shiny, so a standard bikini top would work.
Now for the tricky part. Perhaps making a skin-coloured top, sewing it so that there is space for each breast and fill them in with padding.

I hope these suggestions help : )

I'll have to look for those wood ones. I assumed I could only but those fashion ones in stores which woulda sucked because they are all too small..

For the hair sticks, I asked that because I actually have chopsticks that I thought might work. They are shiny plastic ones.

I'm not sure yet..that's why I asked..but upon watching the series again, hers seem to have that shine that only pleather ones will give. I can do the normal bikini then. But yea I don't really understand that other part..won't that be really noticeably off? I want it to look like I have natural breasts if I can

For the base of the bracelets, this seller carries many:
http://www.etsy.com/shop/TownletBead?ref=seller_info

And for her chest, I found a tutorial.
http://crossplay.net/topic/3101-brea...op/#entry52572

You said you cut up some pants for the shorts, so I was curious as to what material they were. I think pleather would be the most accurate looking for the shorts.

Thanks for the links. I can't get on here on my computer for reasons no one can figure out (I'm on here on my phone) so I'll have to look when I go somewhere else.

I don't think that tutorial will do what I'm trying to achieve. Doing that is for covering all but a little bit of cleavage. That won't work on a bikini that's suppose to look too small on you

EDIT:
I was able to pull up the etsy shop. Just like I thought, too small. I know there has to be a good, but cheap, way to make them. Guess I gotta just think lol

Oh and I forgot to reply about the shorts lol I didn't really want to use the ones I have. They look really ugly lol imma look on eBay and etsy for pleather ones

They make very realistic breast forms that you use something like spirit gum to put them on and they come in a range of skintones and cup sizes but are very expensive. You could try to make your own that way you can make me as large as you want for yoko. The skin matching will take awhile. Not sure how to say how to make them for an underboob cosplay though. Might have to just do a regular bikini. I think it's achievable though!

Oh, sure, but you have to be willing to invest a good chunk of change in a pair of falsies. You can spend anywhere from $100.00 to easily over $1,000.00+ for a pair of them. For someone like Yoko, I'd recommend disconnected breasts (ones that aren't strapped together in the center or otherwise), but those typically are much more expensive, though I find them worth the price.

The makeup to blend them into your skin isn't terribly difficult. It just takes some practice to get it just right.

Either way, that's a very ambitious crossplay and I wish you luck, sir!

Well, I actually already HAVE breast forms like that..but, they are kinda weird..Like, I'm not sure if they all are like this, but they have this layer over the gel (obviously to make sure they stay that shape and are harder to ruin), but they seem a bit shiny..Almost like if you used shrink wrap over it. So I'm not sure if they are all that way, but if not, then I don't know how to blend them in to look natural rather then obviously fake looking..When you look at them against my body, they have a different shine then real skin so they are super noticeable.

Do you have a photo, or brand name of them? Better yet, a link to where you purchased them (assuming you bought them online)?

Mmk, I'm back and able to finally get on here with my computer..No idea what that was about haha

ANYWAY....
Here's the forma I got:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/220886272997... 4.m1439.l2648
You can actually SEE on the top there, they have that flap of whatever it is, that was used to incase them where it adhears to itself almost like lamination..That's the part that's like "how the hell do I make this not look so fake" kinda thing lol

Anyway on to more stuffs here.
I got my riffle partway done:

Yeah, I'm not sure why they have [what appears to be] lamination over the top. I'd assume that comes the casting, or from the construction process. I'm not sure why they have it still on there, as it essentially ruins the whole concept, but that's probably because they're only $35.00.

It would be really difficult to blend makeup over that texture, if you could at all. Typically, breast forms should just have an adhesive, or you can buy proper adhesives designed for breast forms that you apply to the backing. Honestly, I'd chalk it up to their just cheap. Honestly, if you rolled out Yoko, I'd invest in some high quality breast forms, but it's going to depend on your budget and what your willing to spend. They can, and do, get insanely expensive quickly.

However, the top quality ones are amazing.

Yea I guess I was right lol good thing though that my friends willing to sell me his high quality ones he got at thebreastformstore.com....those should be much better. So when I do get those, what would I do in terms of blending them with the skin? Just use foundation in the same color?

Oh, question too for any Yoko cosplayers out there..
I have seen some different ways to do her "bracelets"..However, are they even bracelets? I've never seen them MOVE on her wrists..Are they connected to the gloves or something? Like I noticed that they obviously are circular..And not the actual wrist part of the glove, but how would I be able to wear them where they don't go up my arm, and stay the heck in place?
