I'm questioning crossplaying as Lelouch from Code Geass.

The question is, do you think I could pass? If not, improvements? And also, should I opt for another male character or do you think it's possible I could pull a decent looking Lelouch off?

MitsuUsagi: I think you'd make a very handsome boy, if you did the right things to pass better. First would to sport a more "manly haircut" which of course is easily done by use of a wig. But in your "after" pictures (in which you actively are trying to pass) you might want to do something with your impressive fringe.

But you might want to have someone more learned than I tell you how to apply FtM makeup... ^^' or you might be able to find it around somewhere if you look. Should be somewhere on this thread...

Hi, I'm new to the cosplay scene, and I'm wondering if I should crossplay or not. I'm really out of ideas for characters that I could cosplay. The problem is that most anime guys have such fancy hairs that even ebay-bought wigs wouldn't look perfect. So I thought it'd probably be easier for me just to wear a long wig.

So... instead of answering if I could pass for crossplay, can you guys just tell me which gender I would be suited to cosplay?

thanks.

here's me with 2 different hairstyles

Chasong: Wow. You have a really androgynous face. The second hairstyle makes you look more masculine while the first hairstyle makes you look more feminine.

I think I could see you either sporting lolita or parading around in Ouran garb. Really, it all depends on how much effort you put into it~ So go ahead, YOU choose what you want to wear. I personally think you'd make a nice Hinamori from Bleach. ^^

I'm interested to see if could pass. All the characters I've done so far have been male and I've been confused for one while in costume a few times before, but I'm interested to hear other people's opinions. Any tips on improvement are very much welcomed!

This is a picture of my latest crossplay (I'm on the left :P).

But that's just in general, each character requires something special. ^^
ok cool that works xD

Let's see how I do with this. I'm always trying to find new crosplay looks, to help and improve it. I do have a boy-ish hair style that I'm trying to work with. For a crosplay I'm working on right now:

Yes! I was trying to play with the make up tricks, adding a darker coloring under my cheekbones and such. But I think the reason why it has gotten easier for me was the hair cut? I dunno... But thank you
