The only way you're going to get that down is by investing in some high quality breast forms, but since you already said that buying $400-500.00 breast forms are not worth it, then I don't know what else you can do.

There's only one method that comes to mind that would get me to do that (well), but it will run you $800.00. Other than that, it is doable, but you need to be willing to drop the coin. If you're not, then you probably should just look at a different outfit that you're more realistically able to do on a limited budget.

Can try this if you get a skin suit. This cosplay kinda looks like it should have a skin suit no matter who is wearing it. http://kigurumicosplay.com/wp-conten...-technique.pdf

I don't think I want that..I don't like the whole fold and seams thing that it creates..it looks extremely fake and not something I want in a picture..

The skin suit is actually a good idea -- and folds/seams are something that could be photoshopped out later, as well.

Well how much do those go for? For good ones I mean..I would assume, like everything ever made, that there are good ones to buy and ones that you should just not waste money on..

For what I see, approximately $90 for a decent one.

(I didn't look at another website, but I'm sure a quick Google search would do it.)

All it is is really a matte skin-tone zentai suit.

Again, not doing that..I don't care what other people think of it, I don't like it, I won't like wearing a full body outfit, and not only can't photoshop anything out, but I have no friends that can, and so far not a damn photographer I've ever got a picture from does it unless I pay them, which I also can't just randomly afford..It's not worth it for me to get one of these..Plus, they say it's warm inside them..That's OPPOSITE of what I want in a female cosplay, because I petty much sweat through anything..Let alone a full body suit..

It seems the only way for me to do this and still feel comfortable, is to wait and save up..So I think this discussion is done..I know what I need and have to do, so..

Just going to throw it out there since there was a mention of seams or folds and you plan on spending quite a bit of cash on them...Those full chest breasts forms also have seams and unless you use some kind of latex to blend them to your skin, you're going to see the different parts with that cosplay. Not to mention they probably won't match your skin color. Not sure if you have seen that MaoMao blue rose pictures but they are photoshopped to hell if you look at his prep pictures.

What about cutting one of the suits? Just an idea, but all of the character would have to have bottoms anyway and I won't cosplay ones in just underwear (even though Yoko is close, still not underwear lol) so I would have the shorts on..I would cut the legs off the thing (the cheaper one mentioned is lower quality and has leg seams that I don't want) so that would make that problem go away..It would also be less hot for me..I could also cut the sleeves shorter..I don't like the fake hands thing that they have, it looks very un-natural and I don't like it..

I was going to suggest something like what was just posted, something like a unitard.

Those aren't really what I meant..Isn't that different then this stuff? Like it has more of a shine to it then the other ones? I see things made of lyrca all the time and they seem to have a sheen to them..The ones that we were already talking about were more made to look like skin rather then a sheen..Also, the only ons that would have even worked, are full body anyway..So it's literally no difference in work I have to do..Why not do the same ammount of work to something more skin looking rather then that..I just dont't see the point in getting something that it doesn't show me the color of, that I have to do the exact amount of altering to, over something that DOES show me the color I would get..

EDIT:
Oh, nevermind..I see they are both lycra, or whatever..So yea..Either way, I would still hae to do the same amount of work on either

EDIT2:
I noticed that they don't have a color option on the page for the suits that were first showed to me (the ones that also have masks, I think that was what more creeped me out then anything lol)..But the 2 pictured ones (high and low quality) are different colors..Neither of which are any natural skin tone..One is a yellow shade and the other is a grey shade..Both of which will not look good..However....There is NO option to order a color..How the heck do I know what color I'm suppose to get?

EDIT3:
Sorry for all the edits, better then a bunch of posts though haha
Anyway, I also just realized, I just now read all the sizes of the Kigurumi things, and not a single one would fit me....
