okay, let's say I'm a really skrawny guy, like 6' and 115lbs. so I've got a bit of a waist, but not really, and my hips are rather bony. If I'd like to crossplay a rather hippy character, what would be my best option since it's going to take some rather dramatic alteration.

It always takes alterations, but the principles are the same: you are aiming for the proverbial hourglass. So pad your hips, cinch your waist and boost your bust. Play with the proportions on the mirror until you are satisfied with the shape.

Luck...

thanks, I'll give it a shot. I really don't have much of my own flesh to go around, so I'll prolly have to look into getting breast inserts if I intend to do anything with that. =/

OMG you are 4" taller and weigh 10 lbs less than I do, and *I* keep getting called scrawny.... (I prefer when ppl notice the martial arts muscle and use the term "wiry" instead...)

Pad, pad, pad the thighs and boobs. At 115 lbs, I imagine your waist would be fairly slim already. It probably doesn't look like it by comparison to narrow skinny-guy hips though. (30" or less is great for the "girl look" - many girls are actually bigger in the waist than that, too.)

insanely complete measurements for me

Height - full height: 6'
Height - measure from shoulder to floor: 60 1/2"
Weight - lbs.: 115-120
Chest / Bust - measure around largest part of chest: 31"
Front Torso - measure from base of neck to natural waistline down front: 16"
Back Length - measure from base of neck to natural waistline down back: 17"
Back Width - measure across shoulders across back: 16 1/2"
Waist - measure natural waistline: 26 1/4"
Hips - measure at widest part of hips: 36"
Forearm Length - measure from elbow to wrist: 12 1/2"
Full Arm Length - measure from shoulder edge to wrist: 25"
Shoulder Width - measure from base of neck to shoulder edge: 5 3/4"
Biceps - measure around largest part of upper arm while flexing: 9 1/2"
Forearm - measure around largest part of forearm while flexing: 9 1/4"
Thighs - measure around largest part of thigh while flexing: 19"

so yeah, I'm alot skinnier than most women, but it's proportioned like a guy, so I have to do /something/ if I want any real effect =/

Let's assume you leave you waist as it is. Based on Sears sizing chart (http://www.sears.ca/e/info/womens/wo...g_fashion.html) you can pad your bust to 35" and your hips to 38" and you'll be a proportioned size 6. Get stuffing...

Bust includes the breasts. See the pic on the sizechart. Pad your boobs, not your ribcage.

I'm a size 6 at 26" waist and 36" hips, so if you go for 38" hips, I'd put that in a size 8. Trust me.

okay cool, now one last question ^^;;

My chest is a bit deformed from an accident a few years ago, the left side of my ribcage is bent inwards. Do you think I should do something to make that look more normal?

It depends on how noticeable that is when you are padded and dressed. If it would cause attention you might want to stuff that too.

I used 50mg of Androcure and 1.5mg of Premarin per day for nice hips and other round places. Of course I'm not a crossplayer. :P

I don't suppose that's non-prescription is it?

Those are prescription medicines, and should only be taken under doctor supervision.
