Hopefully someone can help me out here!
This is going to be my second cosplay ever, so I am extremely new in terms of making my own things and thinking outside of the box to achieve them. I'm planning on cosplaying Monkey D Luffy after the two year time skip from the series One Piece. Here
is a reference of him.
The problem I've run into is I cannot
open chest bind. I do not have permission and my breasts are too large (Above DD). I'm trying to save as much money as possible, so I've found multiple ways on how to make my own binder.
The only options I've found that I can do is get a flesh colored leotard and paint the muscles and scar with an airbrush, so this would go over my binder. There's also a torso body sock
and a compression shirt/binder
. The body sock and compression shirts are going to be more expensive so I'm looking for alternatives but want to know if either of these things would even be a good idea?
I want to be able to blend whatever I'm wearing in with my actual skin color so it doesn't look weird.
Is using a skin colored leotard a good idea? What about the compression top or body sock? If not, what would be good alternatives?
If I wasn't clear enough, please ask me whatever I need to answer and I'll get right to it.
