Izaya Orihara crossplay

In a month or two, ill be crossplaying as Izaya and I have found a jacket but I dont know if it would be good enough for the crossplay. It looks alright apart from the zip being too bright but I'm not too fussed by that.
What's your opinion on it?

I think the fur is just a liiiittle too dark. If that doesn't bother you, go for it.
(Says the person who used cheapo white fur for their Izaya coat lol)

This subforum is mostly for crossplay help, as in looking more like a different gender. If you need info for binding or makeup or anything like that, this is where you'd do that.

I had my suspicions that this might be the wrong place for this post. But I need to know, what jeans should I wear to look like a guy and look like Izaya? If I want to be a convincing male, I need to know which jeans to get but my mum would probably find it weird if I bought mens jeans.

You're right about that, plus most men's jeans don't have much room in the butt for, well, butt. Try to look for jeans that don't have a large bulge in the hips-- The straighter the outseam, the less the hips are emphasized. If you have large hips, look for something slightly baggier at the shin and ankle to balance. It's probably not going to be easy to find, but they are out there.

I've heard of Boyfriend Jeans having a more masculine fit (think Boyfriend Shirts), but I haven't tried them myself. Usually, I just buy pants from the boys section at Goodwill/Savers. They usually go by the same single number system as women's pants, but they don't have that feminine cut. Of course, I can only do that because I'm wicked short, but...

Thanks :3 I guess I will spend the next month searching for the perfect jeans. My mum thinks it's weird that I'm being a guy let alone having concerns about jeans.
