Might as well ask >< I know I can't pass as well as my Riku can, but any tips on getting better? (aside from working out more which i plan to/want to do anyways)

I also want to try a REALLY masculine cosplay sometime, but i'm not sure if I could pull it off :/

@Rath Illucer, I think you have a chance. It would depend on the character, your face isn't like Superman jaw of steel (I can't really think of many characters like that :b ).

For the Sora costume - it's pretty bottom-heavy, and the Riku costume is more top-heavy with the vest - which I suspect helps a LOT. The jackety thing would probably help a lot - shoulders carrying the most visual weight is a typically masculine trait (though it's not really 100% true for the character - his pants are huge xd ).

I think it works pretty darn well for you - and I wouldn't be worried unless you wanted to do some kind of burly barbarian muscle man (which, I mean, most actual guys wouldn't be able to do). : D

Could I possibly pass for crossplay with some makeup, eyebrow-trimming and enhancements, such as paddings?

Face:

Slightly from below angle

Straight angle

very Light with straight angle

Body:

172-173cm (~5'8) and about 48kg(108lbs) Waist circumference 60cm(23.6 inch)
Shoulder width ~42cm(16.5) / Hip width ~32cm(12.6)
I guess this info can be good to know for possible padding

Full body, is tilted slightly downwards



If it's possible to pass with make-up and padding, please hint me what I need to work on. such as urgent make-up points and padding width.

And please, don't come up with answers out of pity, I want a honest answer, if I can't crossplay, then I'm better off not crossplaying.

I was wondering if I could pass, since I never got a really direct answer and my parents just say mostly negitive.

@ fujyoshi, I think it depends on what you're going for (passing for one character might not be passing for another). In your pictures, you come off as "Androgynous" to me. If you wanted to appear more masculine, you might want to bulk-up your eyebrows - they're really thin right now. And draw them in a way that they don't look as arched.

But that's just in general, each character requires something special. ^^

Is there any hope for me to pass this crossplay? I'm trying to aim to look like Ikuto Tsukiyomi from Shugo Chara!

Ikuto: http://lunaticviolin.files.wordpress...007/12/107.jpg

Progress Picture #1: http://www.cosplay.com/photo/2088969/

I have crossplayed as Syaoran before and passed according to the people I have asked. I also have worked on attempting to make my face less 'shiny' since that was something that gave me away, according to the help I received before.

Just keep in mind that I've done nothing except work on getting my oily face to be appear less shiny. I washed it with my acne soap which dries my face out a bit so it is less shiny now. I'm completely willing to try makeup if needed. =)

Thanks in advance for any help!

The only "problem" I really see is that your lips are really bright.

I would either cover them over with foundation/flesh-tone lipstick - though the colour of your friend's lips would be good for you too !

It just depends - sometimes "nude" lips look very strange on people, sometimes it works.

@OurLadyC:

Thanks for the advice. =) I will go out and buy a flesh-tone lipstick for my crossplay when I go shopping for more cosplay supplies.
