Basically, do I make you gag?

You look great! Since your face is hidden and you are slimly built, body language tends to be the "tell" and you are doing that perfectly. In all honesty, if I came across this photo while browsing the gallery, it wouldn't even occur to me that it was crossplay.

If I actually wear this, I'll definitely spiff it up a bit more (more realistic blood stains, less fizzy wig).

Completely agree here. I would never have guessed by that pic that you are a guy. Don't worry about revealing cosplays. As long as you are ok withit, that's all that matters

In the second picture, you pass as a young male..Maybe like a 14 year old boy, or a very young looking older teen (as in maybe 19 year old that still looks too young to believe he's 19). But that first pic, I can only assume the one with the same hair is you..If so, then my point stands for both pics. But telling us which one is you in the very first one you post will help us know which one to looks it in it.

Smoke: It's really hard to tell anything when someone's not wearing makeup, padding, wig, etc.

Yea man, sorry to tell ya, but not only are not wearing ANYTHING to even try to pass, you are wearing guys loose fitting clothing as well..It's 100% impossible to tell like that. You'll need to at the very least get the padding, makeup, and at least some female clothing, to even begin to tell.

Hey guys! My first time posting in any thread like this. Personally I'm not too concerned about "passing" but I was curious what you guys think and how you think I could improve.

I cosplay as Levi from Attack On Titan. I don't have any full body shots yet, but if you guys could give me makeup tips, that would be great! I already don't use blush and I do some mild contouring, but I just feel like I have a feminine face. I dunno.

Character.

Some pictures of me. 01, 02

Any advice?

Hey guys, so I tend to cosplay a lot of male characters, and I'm always trying to improve how I look. So~ what do you guys think, and any tips?

Cosplaying a very dorky young shota-ish boy so, this one will be iffy: http://i61.tinypic.com/m8pjr9.png

Some genuinely more masculine looks (I hope):http://i57.tinypic.com/2py0rqq.png

I'd get some bronzer/shadow in there and give yourself more prominent cheekbones. Sometimes contouring on either side of your nose up towards your eyebrows too can help make you seem a bit more angular. Even the prettiest of boys are more angular than women.

Texas: The great thing about Levi is that his face isn't the most masculine, so it's easier for a crossplayer to match than, say, Erwin. I think you look good.

Jinx: Yeah, John looks like a girl (the eyes, I think) but the other two look androgynous or masculine. The slim bishounen thing, you know? The only thing I suggest is making your eyebrows less curved. Men tend to have straighter eyebrows.
