Advice for myself, maybe? I know I'm not good with make up, yet it's fun to try anyway.

Without alterations
Frontal view
Head tilt

It's not the best pic and will try to get a full body picture soon.. But here it is. [I'm 5'11" and 190lbs also]

Will i be able to pass as female?
It will take a bit of work.
The picture isn't that great so I can't tell much but the first thing that pops out is your eyebrows.
They could be thinner.
Your facial structure also looks pretty dark in general. And your eyes don't look especially feminine. Maybe some colored contacts to change that.
And your neck is pretty thick. Females have smaller necks so do something to minimize the appearance of your neck.

Honestly I don't know if you will be able to pass. I haven't seen an attempt yet so not sure.

Wore this to AWA and fooled some people before I opened my mouth, but I'm always curious for a broader opinion.
It was the first time I've worn it, so I'm definitely going to tweak some things...but it is the most extreme shoulder padding and so on I've done for a costume. I plan on trying to work out stubble at some point soon, too. :P
I definitely think I look more masculine in the leather jacket than the other one.

I put up a pic several pages back but I think it got lost in the shuffle. NO MATTER. Here's a better one, anyway, though it is awfully myspacey.

What's the prognosis?

@Psycho7772: I've gotta say that I'm in love with your 2D and Dr Horrible crossplays, you definitely pass with every guy crossplay you've done. Bam, right in the kisser. Seriously though, 2D equals awesome.

@Kai-kun: Wow, actually, I think you've got it down pat. I think the only advice I could offer is to use some sort of foundation/skin-colored cream at the corners of your mouth since men don't have very lush lips. And the beards a nice touch, well done. And who're you cosplaying as in those pictures?

@belligerent: YES. Long-haired or short-haired. Yes. Punky guys, definitely.

I love this thread! New ones here from your friendly neighborhood Yonbi (AH, bad camera and stupid baby face). No makeup, no nothin' YET, can I pass?:
ONE
TWO
THREE

TIPS are always good, I love tips.

1st. Thank you. :3
2D is pretty much my favorite cosplay I've ever done, so thanks! ^-^

2nd - I definitely think you can pull it off. In my experience, effctive crossplay is a lot about the eyebrows.
Jawline and eyebrows. Modify those with makeup and I think you'd have no trouble,
