I remember getting frustrated with a friend in particular who always commented on how I walk like a dude... But whatever, now I'm going to use that to my advantage!

So here's a couple of pics. I'm sorry, I didn't have a full size mirror or someone to take the picture so neither of them are full body so you can't see how I'm shaped. My main concern though is that I have full lips and am unsure of how to make them look thinner. I think I did a pretty good job looking like a boy though, so, yay?

Oh wait, here's one that sort of shows my full body, the parts that matter at least, right? I am sort of pear shaped, my shoulders are very narrow so my hips are wider than them.

But really I think my main question is how to make my lips look thinner, and because Fai is smiling most of the time, how to smile more boyish?

Thank you!
First off, you look great as a dude. (I like looking boyish, so I don't mean any bad things when I compliment your looks)

Lol, as for your smile, I don't think there is any way to make a smile look boyish. A smile is a smile, the point is to dazzle with it, I don't think gender matters when it comes to dazzling. XD

For your lips? They look fine as they are (no need to be thinner), but I would suggest putting on some nude lipstick. (Reference: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uUsbj...el_video_title) :3

All right! Thank you so much, PutPutters! That video is very helpful. I have got to get some of that nude lipstick, I've had people ask what lipstick color I'm using when all I put on is chapstick XD Who knew so much make up would be involved to look like a guy? I also need that haircolor - it's amazing!

No problemo. ;3

Yup! A lot of make-up is used sometimes. XD Depends on the person's face though.

Her haircolor is amazing. @_@

And good luck with your crossplays! >: D

I've wanted to try crossplaying for quite some time now. But my friend and I have been talking about crossplaying Persona characters, and I just wanted to make sure I could pull it off.

It's not a very good picture of me -very non photogenic-, but I just took it last night so... very up to date!

Ooh! You look good! >: D (May I suggest that you thicken your eyebrows a bit more? I was a bit gender-confuzzled for a second @_@). XDD

You look cute as a girly girl. XD For goin' boyish, you chose your clothes well, but I'd suggest focusin' on your masculinizin' makeup.

I never really thought I could pass but I was always fascinated by cross play so I might as well give it a shot haha. And yes I created a fake my yearbook account as a guy that I never use lol. Any feedback would be great cheers!

You look cute. XD I likez your body shape <3 XDD. The crossplay makeup basics for ftm (more neutral colored lips, thicker eyebrows, contouring, etc) would help.

I think everyone has potential.

To be honest, I look bad with short hair, but I look fine with short male wigs. ;3 Some wigs give you more volume to the top of your head, and that's good if you've a round face (like me). Looking at your pictures, you have a kinda roundish oval face with a nice chin. :3 I'm sure you'll look fantastic! Why not try it out?
