Karisu: i was wondering... This is kinda on the same topic. I'm planning on making a sorta-skimpy costume for halloween. But, the character (female) has little --if any-- bust-age. Would there be a way to use your taping method to help me out with this? (see attachment, please ^^;

I guess the question is... can the taping method help to simply reduce your size, not entirely eliminate it? ^^;; Thanks for the help!

And to actually HAVE boobs, as well as a 10" waist-hip differential! However, I really love the silly guy, and for the sake of harmony.... *sigh*

Here you go, Mochihead: "Boob Fairy" Oh, and thanks so much - I heard YOU provided yummies for one of those gatherings on the Hilton Mezzanine I was at; Jarod's B-day party, right? ^^

Got a piccy I took in the hotel mirror - where did my chest go? o.O.......

OMG!! Thats cool...theres no more chesties ^_^ Im going to try that when I do male costumes.. Tight sports bras I dont think are a great magnificient Idea, but I planned on binding for when I did a few male characters ^_^ Now i know how!!

I'm not an expert in binding, only tried twice ^^;;;
I think the best (up to my knowledge) for an Etna (yay! Disgaea cosplay!! have to do Vyers/Chu-Boss someday!) outfit, it would be to use some tape binding but only around the breast, not up your shoulders obviously... and if it doesn't flatten it enough try making etna's top in a stretchy fabric, like the medical thing you wear around your leg if you have a sprain... usually pharmacy have that kind of stuff..
If it doesn't work try using one of those waist slimmer thing under the top and over the bandages?

--------
(edit joy!)
Btw I was wondering if anyone knew about an online ressource for sticky tape or self-adhesive tape that's as wide or wider than 3 inches?
I phoned about all the pharmacies there is in my city and the widest they have is 1 1/2 or they can order up to 2 inches... It does the job somehow but it's a bit complicated....

Alrighty. my turn for a question.

I've read over this little FAQ and...well...

does anyone have an recomendations for.. D cups? *blushu* ;.; I've tried the ace bandages and ordering things online is a no-no (Ma won't get it and she's the one with my credit card >.<). Are there any stores I can check out like a JC Pennies department?

Also, this will be under clothing, the neck lines to most of the costumes that require wee boobies are rather high so the thing taking uo my whole chest won't be much of a problem, just enough to hide and make it seem like I'm boobyless.

I've tried ace bandages... boy was that useless ~.~;

*nod nod* I need help with this too! I'm a 40 DD... why the hell am I wanting to crossplay? Oh yeah, my favorite characters are guys. ^_^;;

The neckline of my costume will also be very high, so binding showing wouldn't be a problem. I've thought of some sort of combination of sports bra and back brace, but I don't want to spend a bunch of money for something that doesn't work! And I need to get the binding before I start on the costume... it's a rather fitted military-jacket type thing, so I'd hate to make it too tight or loose! (I'm planning on going as Ryuhou from s-CRY-ed, BTW.)

Back braces work pretty well for me and i'm a DD too. You'll still get a uniboob look but it's better than nothing. hehheh I tried the back brace on right in the middle of the store too. Funny how no one seemed to notice that my bro was strapping me down just then. And walmart carries the back braces in the sporting good dept for only 10 bucks. I've yet to try out a neoprene waist belt since I can't seem to locate them but, if I find one I'll let chus know how it goes.

o.o Say... How does that Compression Shirt thingie work? My only binding experiences have been with ace bandages, (Both the non-sticky ace kind, and also the self-adhesive sort) and the best I was able to achieve was a uni-boob. (Probably wound up being a bit bigger than an A, but not as big as B, I guess. Would that be AA? I never wore one, so I have no clue.)

I really like Karisu's idea of the tape, but I'm a C, and I have sort of thin/delicate skin REGARDLESS, so yeah... no tape getting near my breastses. But that shirt idea looks pretty spiff-tacular...

heres a thought. instead of directly applying the tape to your skin, use suran wrap to start binding, then finish it with tape. this way the tape sticks to the suran wrap & not your skin. if you want it off, just cut it off.

Hey, I have a question. Would it look more natural for girls who are above B-cup to pad their stomach in order of blend in with their binded top? Or would that just look weird, too?

LunarYoma - my tape method wouldn't work with saran wrap because it HAS to stick to skin to move the breasts out of teh way - that method was to achieve a full front to-the-waist chest cleavage with no visible binding. That is: NO binding across the front 6" width of your body. At all.

Lilli: I have a compression shirt. It works really well for flattening, even on my daughter (who is probably a C now.) Gives you the "pecs" look - it flattens very uniformly. (Downside - it's visible under anything skimpier than a muscle shirt.)

Wooo. I may have to try that, thanks Karisu-sama! It sounds a lot easier and faster than tape or ace bandages. I'd be worried about using saran wrap anyway, as I don't think I'd enjoy wearing the equivalent of a tsauna suit for 8 or so hours at a con ^^;

Nah, none of my crossplays have been or plan on being skimpy, so I wouldn't mind that aspect. Awesome! XD

Ah. And Karisu-sama helps me to answer one of the biggest questions I was left with at the end of Escaflowne: "WHERE did they GO!?" Thank you for solving the Dilandau mystery! ^_~

I've heard an off-hand rumor that the one's sudden lack of chance (EDIT: Chance? wtf? I meant to type "chest" I must have been tired) makes balance and stair-going a tad awkward at first. Anyone find this to be true?

Yes! XD A friend of mine had to practice for a while before she got used to it, and she was only a B, imagine what would happen for us larger ladies! O.o Even with the not so helpful ace bandage attempt I was a little akward going down the stairs. XD

Try straightening your posture, practice standing and even walking at attention. Not only does it help balance when you're not bound, but is slims out your tummy too
^.^
