I agree with what beezlebobbles says.
TBH, I googled what to do for dark-skin makeup. Lol, yeah, I haven't had much experience with makeup on darker skin, but a few of the things I was thinking were here. Basically, shimmery bronzer instead of blush on your cheekbones. Even just using highlights can give your face definition. Contouring's not a necessity (for this case, imo anyway). http://www.lhj.com/style/beauty/make...for-dark-skin/

@Dengeki
You did pretty well actually. Your face definitely looks more feminine, very soft. The only reason I knew you were male is because I've seen your past posts. XD

@Quinn
I think I've seen this in the crossplay section somewhere. XD But yeah, you pass. Your face's pretty androgynous. If anything, you look like a pretty boy. :3

Dengeki what character are you going for?

@putt putters thanks! I will check out. I tried buying two shades of bronzer to no avail. I think I should either try a more drastic color or use foundation/powder to contour. You really think my face isn't too square? I am hoping for a pretty drastic and convincing shape. My body is very masculine so maybe that is why I see the more maleness.

I feel like as long as you're somewhat convincing and you have the right attitude, you can definitely pass. XD The right attitude works 99% of the time if you're confident. :3 Rather than contouring just highlighting the highlight areas on your face could help. Shimmer shimmery baby, ;3 I'm pretty sure the costume will hide a lot of your masculinity.

I'm going as one of my original characters, so its kind of hard to explain how she looks. I do have fanart drawings of her, but they aren't the best ones to share.

I also have a long list of cosplays that I want to do in my Cosplay Wishlist. I have a link to it in my signature

Just as a heads up, I did not draw this. Only colored it. Also, her proportions are a bit off.

I have heard that L is very difficult to pass off.

You did a great job from what I can tell.

First time cosplaying? Well done! I don't like many L cosplayers (some people don't pull it off well), but I like your cosplay. :3 Your face has androgynous features; you pass pretty well.

You make a very cute L and definitely pass XD

I forgot to do concealer on my lips, but I think I look at least a little androgynous.

This year I'm gonna start on my first crossplay (woo!). I really curious if I pass? I did put on some makeup for my boyish pictures, but it was to mute my lip color, light contouring, and foundation. I would highly appreciate it if I can get some feedback! C:
