While the option isn't super cheap you can go for silicone enhancers, there are also realistic breasts that you actually use an adhesive with and a bit of concealer and they look au-natural. Victoria's Secret online sells the enhancers for under US $50

Under $50? That's the best news I've heard all day. Perfect, if you have $50 sitting around (I don't -_-)

I must thank Merle-kun for the riceboobs ;D Great idea. But I don't know if anyone came up with a better idea then use a funnel to get the rice into the balloon (I just got here and only read 1/3 of this topic,33 pages..). Can be hard to blow in air that way, or? So i tried something else: Take a plastic bottle, the smaller on(50cl dunno what that is in US, google it) and make a little hole in the bottom, enough to get in air and in a place where you can easily blow it in. Then fill the bottle with the rice, thread the balloon over the bottle top, turn upside down and blow in the hole. Safer way as rice wont fly everywhere except if it burst.

And then, a question. Any of you who have made a rice-false, did you leave a little extra air inside so it is a bit more soft or not. It feels much better with air but it is a little bit of rustling rice when it moves.
I think i will have them a little bit inflated as they are stone hard else...

I for myself think I will buy high quality breast forms if I think this crossplay works good, and I think I can spare the money... There seems to be sorts that is adhesive. Perfect ;D

Oh I forgot to add. To make sure they are the same size, the volume measuring can easily be a little off, is to use a weighing-machine of some kind before you seal the balloons.

Hmm, about the extra air for better softness. That didn't work of course, as the air slowly escapes the balloon over a longer time(few days). To bad. They felt really good with a bit air in. So if you make them the same day as you are going to use them...

What I've used a few times are latex examination gloves.
The thickness of the latex not only means they are hard to burst, but means they get a fair amount of jiggle potential without looking odd.. Mine could support the pressure of a grope or myself laying flat on the floor, pressing weight to my chest.
Just tie the fingers off tight where hey meet the palm, fill with water and tie off the hand.

Just to mention however, these are best made fresh - latex begins to degrade when exposed to water, so they don't last more than a month.
Test them before you wear them for leaking, too. You don't want a weeping breast.
I'm wearing some in my ryomo images in my gallery.

I've also worn them in public once before - being trans, I got the courage up to go out in public as a girl one time. No one said anything nasty, and I got a few approving looks, so these things ARE worth trying if you don't need to show cleavage.
They won't do if you need to show off anything, but a box of latex examination gloves tends to be pretty cheap.

I've been reading a lot of these ideas and they're all brilliant, but some of it seems rather complicated. Personally my method involves a piece of stretch fabric and either stuffing or using microbeads (the ones used in the cush pillows.)

What you do is you go to your local fabric store and get a stretch fabric. I recommend a jetset knit because you can make those suckers as saggy or as perky as you like. I'm going as Arkham City Catwoman in the coming months and need both the perfect hourglass figure and the right sized bosoms. For something like A cups you'll need about a quarter yard of the stretch fabric (coincidentally you can use the 9" of fabric for up to about a good B sized cup.) and you cut 4 circles out of it in the size that you want. A lot of this is trial and error so it's good to start with something like old pillows you have lying around the house. Then what you do is you sew up the circle so that it forms a cup and you can fill it with however much of the microbeads as you like. For a saggy look you add a little less, for a perky look you add a little more. All it takes is basic....BASIC sewing abilities. You can also use the bird seed or rice and it feels like decent breasts. I used an actual Cush pillow when I went as Ursula and they were WONDERFUL and very large...It depends on the character. Just my own little interpretation and take from it what you will.

Enjoy and happy crossplaying.

I'm not sure if these have been mentioned, but I follow Petrilude on youtube and he has several drag related vids, so I thought I'd post them.

Creating cleavage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJUFQlUmoGI

Cheaper Falsies: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cqX4v-QjsVk

Also he mentions using panyhose to make rice boobs instead of balloons, I have no idea if it's better though.

I hope these vids help you! C:

I've heard that a gel shampoo in balloons works

Silicone breastforms

Here is an idea for making silicone: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-...ru-Substitute/

This formula could be made into skin color, and set in plaster molds covered in plastic (or "gorilla tape" as the instructables site suggests). Then if you found some prosthetic adhesive you would be able to have silicone cleavage that could be worn in a lowcut shirt. Good luck

In a way, yes. I have a set of C-cups myself, but it seems that my cat might of gotten a hold of them somehow and cut a bit off from the bottom of one of the forms. I did some temporary repair onto it with some clear tape until I can figure out the proper way to get them fixed

Do these kinds of things work for girls too?

I'm rockin' a AA here, so I refuse to wear any costume until I can have normal-looking boobs!

you're looking for breast enhancers.
www.supergelproducts.com is a good website for some good quality enhancers and forms.

for the crossplayers, have any of you ever tried something called femskin? they make a full female body suit but you can get just the upper torso too. looks like it would definitely help out with costumes that show more cleavage. cost is pretty high though.
