How do I fair so far?
You seem to have an androgynous look going for you right now, you really could hop on either side of the fence and be fine, in my opinion! n.n

I'm not wearing any makeup to help me pass or otherwise. Really, I'd like to know whether or not my facial structure can help me pass on its own (though I do intend on actually trying some makeup techniques further down the road.)

I think with makeup, you definitely should be able to pass. You have a bit of an androgynous face, so that helps you. In fact before i looked at your link, i was having a hard time telling your gender by your profile pic.

Hopefully I'm hopping on the androgyny train here. Does anyone have any suggestions to look solidly male? Being wicked short, I have to hit all the marks when trying to pass.
I've found that the standard suggestions for shading under cheekbones make me look like a hollow-faced vampire. I don't have any pictures, but advice there is appreciated as well.

It's my first time attempting a cosplay, and I'm wondering - do I pass? This is me at my worst, with absolutely no makeup or wig (and my hair is being pretty irritating ugh):

(Will attempt another photo when my wig arrives in the mail)

Ok here is the picture my friend took of me as Toshio Ozaki from Shiki. I was really worried about crossplaying him because Toshio is super badass and manly as hell and I apparently look like I'm 14 (I'm graduating this year and cashiers keep asking me if I'm about to start high school D8) The worry got to the point where I almost dropped the cosplay because I felt like I couldn't do him justice.

Looking at him on google, id say you pull it off quite well. You do look young, but id say you look around 17-18, not 14. And you definitely pulled off looking like a guy.

Do you think I can pass if I put on make up? I want to cosplay as rise kujikawa from persona 4.

Sorry if I cover a part of my mouth... I haven't shaved yet T_T

Not sure how good these selfies are, but I got a cute mirror that was suppose to go on the dresser I found it with at the thrift store, but they were selling it separate so I bought it haha
Anyway since then I've taken a few pics, so I was wondering what everyone thinks..

Here's my Sweet Lolita, It's been a while since I took a pic, or even uploaded one, of this and my mirror can only sit RIGHT freaking under my light, so I get a nice ugly glare at the top so my head get's a nice anooying brightness..Anyway:
http://sailor-jeimi.deviantart.com/a...lita-432853265
http://sailor-jeimi.deviantart.com/a...lits-432853415

Then These are for a passing body type..I made a Maid outfit for a character:
http://sailor-jeimi.deviantart.com/a...xene-432779657
http://sailor-jeimi.deviantart.com/a...xene-432780454

So any thoughts?
In both outfits I am wearing breast forms and a corset

There's something about the way you hold your arms and shoulders in these pics that still reads as male for me somehow, but otherwise I think you've done a good job with the shape. I don't know that this would be an issue in situations where you're not holding a camera up, and I don't know that most people would notice if they weren't looking at it with a critical eye to determine how well you're passing. I think for most people in normal situations, they wouldn't notice.

From the waist down, the body language is right to me, though. I don't have a lot of advice for the shoulders thing since I am not good at looking female, myself, though. Usually women to me seem a bit more...fluid with their upper bodies? I don't know if it has to do with breasts weighing them down or what. Again, you're also holding a camera, and sometimes it's difficult to think of how to translate every single mannerism to whatever gender you're trying to portray unless you do it all the time.

Referring to me?
Just making sure as this could have been about anyone, and you didn't quote..
Anyway assuming it is..The whole holding the camera thing, yea..Sorta does that regardless..Can't really stop that one..But in the lolita pictures, I (like the one a little above me) didn't shave..So I had to cover my face..lol I'm told by my friend that I can do female poses a little TOO well (lol we were having pose fun one day) so I know once I'm not holding the camera myself, or needing to hide my face hairs, it'll be better..Most of my problem is in my face though..I had a bunch of pics from another friend when I first wore that Lolita one and my face in all of them made me wanna never put them up..She also said my poses were really good so..
But thank you on the help, as well as the compliments.

Yeah, it was a response to yours, sorry. I tend not to quote if I'm replying to what's directly above. Just a habit.
