Temporarily disabling the lurking device...
I figured I wouldn't hijack Sean Connery's similar thread, since the transition in this case is in the other direction. For those of you following along at home, I'm a female stumped for ideas for a male costume. Yes, it's crossplay for the sake of crossplay, more or less.
And yes, I am a bad anime fan; the only male characters I know of who aren't outright bishounen are muscle-bound tanks, which is too far in the other direction for me.
I don't want to play a character I don't
like, so this is more hunting around for possible sources than anything else-- I'm hoping this is still the right forum. But anyway. If anyone has a favorite series they'd like to recruit fans to, which happens to feature short, normal-to-stocky (I'm not fat, exactly, but hips and chest will be a problem) male characters, in a setting fantastical enough to have interesting costumes, speak up?
Or if someone wants to suggest outright a specific character, that's grand too.
After a new haircut I'm jazzed that I may be able to pull this off after all, but since pulling it off believably is important to me, I'm not about to try a Muraki or something.
