Your only real problem is your uber-girly haircut, so I'd recommend hats, baseball or beanie (but only beanies with brims!). And I really think you can pass as Sasuke. You actually look quite a bit like him!
You are totally right about cosplaying L.
I'll try to take pictures drag kinging.lol
Thanks.
hahaha I would have thought my hair would be the opposite of being girly
here are some pics of how it looks from the sides

Berry: In that first picture with the beanie you look totally masculine, except for all the eye makeup. xD

And whores call themselves whores and n*****s call themselves n*****s. That doesn't make the terms unoffensive.

Hooraytheweird: You can totally pass and the last picture of you crossplaying makes me smile your expression is interesting. lol

Kari_717: I agree with you. You can pull it off pretty good. :]

~FatalDreams~: Wow! you can pass.

Kerrigan199: wow I am totally jealous of your androgynous looks. >.< and yeah you can totally pass. I have to agree with Hooraytheweird you are attractive both as a female and male.

Hooraytheweird: hahaha i guess that was the only thing that made me look also like a girl. but yey i took that pic so people would say that i look like a guy

Unlike those two classes of people, who reclaimed a term that was originally used against them, drag queens/kings are merely stating what they are. It's like getting offended that you called a postman a postman.

Well you go ahead and tell the next crossdresser you see at a con that you think they look good in drag, then tell me how happy they were to hear it.

Crossplaying and drag are different, so it would be ridiculous to tell a crossplayer such a thing.

lots of numbers person: I can't tell if you're male or female, so...A+

Hey,
I don't want to just feed the flames here, but I figured I should at least apologize for offending somebody.

I'm sorry, I didn't realize anybody would find the term offensive. I've never met somebody who was insulted by the it, so I had no idea. I, personally, do not believe that "in drag" is an offensive term in modern social language, but I recognize your argument and realize and it's the principal of the matter.
If you wish to say anything further about it, you can PM me, but I don't want this conversation to continue the forum.

Once again, I'm sorry it offended you, and would not have used the term if I had known that it would cause an argument.
Thanks.

o01101011, I think you could definitely pass. You have a nice face shape and eyes that work well for both female and male. With some contouring and maybe eyebrow darkening/thickening (depending on the character), I think you'd pass very well. (:

Whoa, easy there on the whole "drag" debate.

Me personally I would prefer "cross" over "drag" since I would think that with "drag", the thing that comes to mind is over-exaggeration (specifically with make up, followed by attire).

I would probably just say this........lets not get into a war the moment someone mentions TV (transvestite). I would imagine that things would get worse and we would have a mess on our hands.

I was planning on crossplaying for Anime Oasis in March, but I wasn't sure if I could pull it off... so do you think I would pass?

@miles She referred to herself as "in drag" so I referred to the picture labeled like that as such. I wouldn't go up to a crossplayer and say "you look good in drag"-I'm obviously here because I want to crossplay as well. Just to clear that up. >_>

you look very androgynous o01! You can definitely pass! O_O
