@Bombadillo: Saeko has the stereotypical Tsundere-type Anime eye shape. You can achieve the right look by doing a "cat eye" makeup. There are a bunch of tutorials online. I would suggest doing a slightly smokier variation, as you don't have a lot of lid space (when I look at your photos). That will hopefully make your features read as feminine, without being overwhelming.

Ironing the pleats might help restore them. Starch could also help hold the pleats as well.

*goes back to lurking*

Does this look any better? I added some breasts to it.

Made a new profile just for this thread, so please let me know if I need to do something over(Never really used a forum before, either :S).

For these pics I tried applying both traditional makeup and some charcoal powder I had lying around as a sort of shader. My hair is actually quite long so it's tucked up under the hood. I did have some pics with better lighting, but they seemed to have disappeared on me. So, can pass as male(at least in the face)?

An updated picture of my Miku crossplay (still missing the tie though). With the exception of a few minor tweaks, does it look okay?

Alright this is my first time ever asking this, but here goes. The first two are of my Sheik (male) cosplay and the last one is me not in cosplay.

L'arc: Always looking better. Is your avatar picture new? Looks great.

Aura: There you go. The only thing I can think of is shaping your eyebrows, either through makeup or plucking. A lot of girls have thicker eyebrows anyway, so it's optional.

Ends: Sheik's great for crossplay because of the mask. It's hard to tell with the body shot, but I say your face passes well.

Yep, was from the last con. It's amazing how far I've come since my makeup topic. I still wish I knew how to do eyeliner tails, and my eyes suck for eyeshadow. :/

I haven't posted a pic of my arms in a while, so here is one, I guess:

bara or something

Working on dropping bodyfat % and adding muscle, still... It is a never-ending struggle, apparently. You can see kind of a difference between that and my profile pic, though, since it's accidentally kind of the same pose oops.

I feel like I've come a long way, but I'm curious what you guys think of the Sasuke crossplay I did for Anime Boston. http://worldcosplay.net/photo/1857280 http://birdman-hwah.deviantart.com/a...2014-442331959 I don't think I actually fooled anyone at the con though, probably due to my voice.

I bought some cheap "werewolf hair" a while ago because it had an interesting texture (and because it was cheap), so I was curious if it would work at all for facial hair. NOT TOTALLY. It's kind of a nightmare to work with (the hairs are crimped so you can't really choose how they lay on your skin), and up close I don't think it fools anybody, but from a distance it'd probably work all right...

im really attractive ok


I think I'll stick with proven things like yak hair and crepe wool.

I just attended Sakuracon but sadly didn't have time to get a Kancolle crossplay ready;
I plan on going to AX, and I want to do Shimakaze / Suika,
Never been to this forum, I found it looking for instructions on how do nice fake titties for Shima; people seem nice though;

Anyway this was my first real attempt at crossplaying (1st time make-up mainly) thought I'd post here.
Others said I looked fine but since I know what I look like normally it just doesn't work for me,
People looked at my funny when I went in the bathroom so I guess it was ok;

I also had 3 separate people ask me if I was some kinda tranny after con, pretty disconcerting
