It's been a while since I posted in this thread, so I'll go through everyone on the most recent page.

@Blackterial: I'd say you look good as a bishounen, which fits that character well!

@Nyanacd: Looks good for the most part to me. I'd say you pull off a nice M.I.L.F. (And yes, I'm complimenting you ).

@MagicialStar: For the most part, you look really cute, but a common mistake of crossplaying as bishojo characters (I know this from experience, so trust me.) is facial expression. Certain ones will expose your masculinity more than others (Compare the 2nd and 5th images). I would also look into false eyelashes (particularly the criss-cross ones as I think they go well for the bishojo look which is what you seem to be going for) if you haven't already. They help for larger eyes, which will make you look cute and attractive even from a distance!

@SennaKoshiba: If there's anything that can be improved upon, it would making your face look a little more rounded. Other than that, you look dangerously sexy.

@animachan: In terms of body, I'd say you pass for the most part. Some facial shots would be appreciated for a better opinion, though.

@Libis: I wouldn't want to pick a fight with you. In other words, you look like a really tough guy!

@miene-maus: Looks good from what I can see. For Ciel Phantomhive in particular, I also recommend using some mascara at the least as his eyes are portrayed to be pretty wide.

@Akune-chan: Your Grell Sutcliffe shots definitely indicate that you can pull off the flamboyant male. I'm a bit skeptical on the Orochimaru one due to the lighting in particular, so I'm not going to say anything certain for that one. The last 2 shots indicate that you can pull off the "genius" male character pretty well, though the lighting leaves a bit of doubt on my part.

@DarkContract: Your facial shape works well for bishonen. I would like to see some shots showing more of your face, though.

Anyway, I was told I didn't pass last year (because I knew little to nothing about makeup then), so I'm going to post this comparison pic (left is November 2011, right is November 2012). Anyway, am I at least closer to passing now than before?

I'm quite curious to see if I pass the crossplay test...

First link, regular ol' me. No make up, no nothing:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...RiverFalls.jpg

Kurama(Yu Yu Hakusho) crossplay from 2008:
http://www.cosplay.com/photo/1718337/

Then my most recent, Sebastian(Black Butler) crossplay from... well technically this month:
http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3314021/
(Not the best of the photos, but the closest shot in the gallery).

Jeez I love Sebastian's coat. :3

For Sebby, I would try to sharpen your face just a little more. If you shade from below the cheekbones (not on them, but in the part that their shadow is) on down to the part that comes in when you suck in your cheeks between your teeth. Then also shade in your temples. With a little highlighting on the cheekbones, jawline, and any other high point (play with it on your day off and see what different effects you can get! ). Other than that, (which is honestly a nitpicky detail,) you're doing a great job!

btw, I'm not sure I explained that completely in an understandable way. If I was confusing, search f to m makeup on youtube and there are lots of great shading videos.

Welp. New page was started.

@Ai no Miko: For Sebastian in particular, as Libis said, a sharper chin would help. Some more contouring around certain areas would help for more a masculine appearance. As for Kurama, again, a sharper chin would help, but it looks well done besides that. Other than that, I'd say you shouldn't have much difficulty in passing as a man.

Ok, let's try this again.

(Note: Left dates back to November 2011. Right is about a year after.)

Okay, so I was wondering how well you guys think I can pass. Not really looking to be seen as full manly, but more of the bishounen or young guy look. Maybe it helps that I'm 5'10''.
Anyway, all tips are appreciated!

So this is what I look like normally or as a female character:

Hi! I'm still rather new to cosplay and I've never crossplayed before so opinions would be appreciated! At first I always cosplayed princess-type characters but I've started diversifying lately and this time I'm looking at doing Cheshire from Pandora Hearts. Photos:

Thanks for the input!
So I checked out your post and I think that you definitely CAN pass.
But here are some, totally optional, tips. Especially since Len is a boy. xD
So, I'd probably wear circle lenses and false eyelashes and line your waterline with a white eyeliner. Also maybe thin out your eyebrows or completely cover them and draw on new ones.
I'd probably let the dress "puff out" somewhere under the waist instead of the hips to accentuate it, or maybe wear a corset of waist trimmer.
And maybe add a hoop skirt under the dress to let is flare out.^^


Anyway, if someone still has tips for me, I'd be happy to hear them! :3

Wow, I really can't give suggestions for Karkat for that's far past the point of passing. You did well in the Mukuro one as well, but I would suggest changing the way you define your eyes a bit (make the upper lashline look flatter and not so round).

Also, 5'10"?! I'm 5'7" o_O.

Thanks for the compliment! Just out of curiosity, what did you think about the differences in particular?

As for your crossplay, I would say that your facial shape works well for female (and the switch from black to pink was a good call in my opinion). I think you may have used a little too much eyeshadow (this is more of a personal thing, though, as I personally believe in emphasizing the lashlines over all else when it comes to cosplaying. Circle lenses are optional, but false eyelashes would do A LOT (See the comparison pic I posted) to enhance crossplaying male-to-female. I would also suggest lip gloss over lipstick as the emphasis on lips should not detract from the eyes (Again, my personal preference). As LluviaSarcasm suggested, it can't hurt to add a little more shape to the dress, but this is also personal preference. I would also suggest white eyeliner, but I have no idea how it's supposed to work, so I'm going to back away from that subject for the time being o_O. You definitely pass for the most part, but I'm sure you can definitely make for better! Really well done for a first crossplay, nonetheless!

Thanks a lot!
I'll keep it in mind to use a straighter lash line next time, thank you!

And yup, 5'10'', the usual height of a cool guy japanese teenage protagonist. xD

So sorry for the late reply! I'm still new to this, but I'll see if I can help. There's definitely an improvement from last year; your eyes pop out more and they're a lot more feminine. She has thin eyebrows and a quick fix would be a little makeup or tweezing (but at least the color matched the wig from what I could tell, which is something I constantly forget to do). I'm not a pro with makeup, so I wouldn't be able to give you any tips on that, but anyway to make your face 'softer' whether it be a light ivory liquid or cream foundation would be a plus.

Anyway, I'm not entirely sure I know what I'm talking about, so take it with a grain of salt, yeah? You're doing good ^-^

Well i may be a noob in make up but exactly what brand of white eyeliner do you suggest?
I was using a fake eyelash and i think i should get a longer one but the stores where i live like sell short to med long types xO
and for the gloss i cant seem to find a black one in the store where i live. Right now i am looking at a red pinkish gloss and lipstick.

Well looking at your past pictures, you did improve alot. I clearly see some sexiness on that face. My suggestion, try using blue eye shadow, that would complete it.
