Where are all the male Grell cosplayers?

Well, I've been looking though the gallery here at the Grell cosplays (for ideas since I'm working on my own Grell cosplay) and I noticed that a lot people that cosplay as him are girls.
So I was just curious as to why there are so few (from what I've seen so far) male Grell cosplayers?

Sorry if this sounds like a stupid question. ^^;

Well....HOW girly is Grell? I mean...
*Girly/Sassy personality
*Insanely long hair
*Heels
*Makeup
*Constantly flirts with guys (even if most cosplayers here are girls anyways)
*Crossdresses some
...I'm sure few men are willing to do all that for a costume. Girls just flock to him either BECAUSE he's so girly or because he's pretty much a yaoi-magnet ([insert other reason here]).
Though I freakin' love male Grells when I do find them. (I promise, some exist! x3)

I only recall seeing one male Grell cosplayer and it was at Naka-Kon '11. He was also black, I'm noting that as I see very few black cosplayers. On a similar note, I've only seen one male Ciel cosplayer.

This reminds of what acksonl (a well know cosplay filmmaker on Youtube) said when asked why most of the cosplayers he films are female. His response was simply "most cosplayers are female."

I saw one at AX, so they do exist. <:3

Like Shana said, a lot of cosplayers are female so male Grells would be a bit more rare....

Yeah true, Grell is quite girly to say the least.
I guess it makes sense that he's probably more popular with girls than guys I suppose.

As for the two male Grells shown....just wow.
Those two are really good...Amazing!

Gosh, I can't wait to cosplay as Grell! >w<
Maybe I'll post some of my WIP pics in the Kuroshitsuji Cosplay thread sometime
(if that would be the right place to put it).

I'm going to second the "most cosplayers are female" response.

It's a shame, I think more people both male and female should cosplay her.

They aren't all that rare. Both "...And Sewing Is Half The Battle!" and Godly Team Cosplay have male Grell(e)s:

Male Grell who also does Sebastian. And he looks awesome.

I think Kuroshitsuji itself doesn't attract many males since its target audience is girls. And a character like Grell is even more of a turnoff because of his highly effeminate qualities, as mentioned above.

Grell is indeed cosplayed by many girls; mainly because he's a bit feminive and thinks of himself as a woman? o3o

Anyhow, just a heads-up: I'm going to copaly Grell next summer(I'm male)! 8D
