How many of you think you have an androgynous look?

lols sorry if there's some kind of thread around here somewhere, but how many of you think you can pull off both sexes and still be convincing?

Well I'm a girl so:

and...XD I don't have a regular pic of me, but here's one of me as Hisagi on the right (VERY old pic >_<; ):

Well depending on the cosplay I think I can usually pull off the boy look, but it's usually my hips that give me away XDDD;

okay, don't be shy! let's see yo face! XD;

I know I'm really girly...but that's ok for crossplaying anime/jrock/random girly boys.
Here's normal me... (on the left)

My first real cosplay attempt, as Mana from Malice Mizer

And my most proud crossplay, Roxel

I'm borderline enough if I hide some of the obvious male features (facial hair, big forehead) I make people wonder. It's enough to make me wonder what six months of hormones would do for me. But I have to think real androgny would mean that today you could go to the beach in a bikini or one-piece and guys would check you out.. and tomorrow you could go in board shorts and a tank top (and bind where applicable), and girls would check you out... and there's no way I'm going to pull off both of those.

I guess it's sufficient for that I have been referred to as "that guy" by passersby on a couple of occasions...

(While crossplaying, though - not with my real waist-length hair hanging down. )

I can't stand it when really manly looking boys try to crossplay super popular girl characters, and then complain that people look at them oddly. (This doesn't partain to any of you, I promise! I just thought of that randomly haha)

I think I might, I have Scandanavian features which suits a guys face when crossplaying XD Yet look femme enough when normal.

*grins and waves* I think I pull it off. Well, I can. I've got really mannish eyes (that is, thin eyelashes that are mostly blond anyway) and I have a bold chin and stuff. My mouth is really girly, though.
I was called "sir" for a long time when I cut my hair off.
Which is why it sucks that I crossplay so badly. I never look definitively male. Thbt.

With a little makeup to highlight select features? Oh yeah. Easily. You could probably skip it altogether, if your mannerisms (sp?) are up-to-par.

I believe I'm relatively androgynous, face-wise anyway (curse you, hips. . .*shakefist*). The main reasoning behind this is that when I was younger (as in, before puberty), people would mistake me for my brother and vice versa. Even a little while ago, when mom was trying to force me to tie my hair back, she remarked that I looked a lot like him. >< Which is why I keep my hair close to my face.

No photo evidence because my camera sucks and I'm not photogenic.
