Lightbulb Would you ever be attracted to a guy/girl crossplaying?

This is more of a specific question, as opposed to "What do you think of guys crossplaying?"

Well, here goes anyhow.

My girl buddy and I got into a discussion regarding my costume and who I'm portraying. As a few of you know, and from looking at the avatar, I'm planning to cosplay as Honjo Kamatari -- a guy who crossdresses and appears rather feminine.

Now a hypothetical question came up and she asked, "Well, if you were looking to hook up with someone at a convention, what gender were you hoping to 'attract'?" It was a silly question, but it did raise some more questions about people meeting their soul mates while cosplaying and all the wonderful things I've seen while browsing through the forums.

So I pose this question on behalf of my friend, since we're in a cosplay forum and this is posted in a category devoted to crossplaying...

Would you ever be attracted to an individual who crossplays?
(question revised 10:04 7-16-2003)

-- my personal answer

There was this one particular girl who was crossplaying as Arucard from Hellsing at AX 2003 on that Saturday, and I really had a small crush on her when we left. There were quite a few people playing Arucard that day but this one specifically caught my eye.

My personal answer would be yeah, I'm sure it's possible. But I wouldn't be able to answer on behalf of the ladies though.

ya, i went to DragonCon in Atlanta (where i live) and saw a Mana. I know Mana is a guy, but this Mana looked like a girl (i guess Mana looks like a girl also). It turns out, i started to talk to him, and found out it was a guy. I was like, "Wow your a good crossplayer" He said thanks and then i vowed to myself that someday be that good at crossplay. I think its normal for that to happen, and when you find out you laugh at yourself.

While I'm not sure, if I were going to a con and hoping to meet someone, that I would only go after crossplayers, it's certainly not something to discount them from the pool ;p Actually, if there were 10 people lined up in front of me in costume and someone said "pick one", I'd probably pick the crossplayer, because I find that people who are willing to do the whole gender-bending thing are in general more adventerous and open-minded, which is something I really like.

>>I also think some girls look good dressed as guys and vis versa

True_Sanosuke, I totally agree ^_^

When I was dressed as Akane, a few guys did hit on me. It was kinda fun really, very flattering, and yes, I do get attracted to other crossplayers. ^_^

"Have you ever been attracted to a guy/girl crossplaying?"

Yes. To both.

But I'm married, not relationship-seeking.

The question's pretty much to this degree right here:
"Have you ever fallen in love or had a crush on a crossplayer?"

Not necessarily what we think of crossplayers in general. Its more of a "Will you fall in love, etc" question. Not trying to be mean, but just kinda trying to keep the thread on topic since it's something my friend and I are definitely curious about.

Yep... the reaaaally convincing ones. I think my biggest attractio was to the Touga and Saionji in the Utena musical... sitting there for 5 minutes or so thinking of how hot they were and then when they did a closer shot I was floored that they were girls. ;_;

heh heh I've had a lil' crush on a female crossplayer before...it's boggles my mind that she's female. She makes an uberkawai boy. Sah~~ boys don't usually look so bishounen.
