Genderswapped Yoko from TTGL - Suggestions?

Hey everyone.

So I decided it would be fun, a little different, and cool to do a gender-swapped Yoko from Gurren Lagann.....


BUT I NEED ADVICE


So here is da plan:

Shorts- The booty shorts would be changed into longer black cargo shorts.

Tights- Well, as ridiculous as wearing tights would be XD , I would forgo them. Maybe pink socks.

Boots- Boots would be the same colors and design, but in a more masculine boot design

Bikini- Ha again, ridiculous but I think I would go shirtless. I feel like a man version of Yoko would be shirtless. Maybe some wraps like Kamina has???

Scarf- Not sure about this one. I thought about making a more rugged bandanna-ish thing using the same colors.....hmmm


Hair- Short red hair, spikey or something. Same Hairclip

Rifle- I thought about using a short assault rifle dea. Just because it is a foil to the insanely long sniper rifle she uses.


Attached is an image I am kiiiiiind of following for inspiration.

I was just wondering if anyone had suggestions on this : )

Thanks! Love and Peace! Or believe in yourself-WHATEVER

sounds soooo cool
for the shorts, i think cargo shorts would be perfect!
for the tights you could do the socks or just leave it out, a lot of cosplayers dont do her tights
boots, id buy pair of short white boots n just paint on the flames, but id do them combat boot style to add a more malely look
shirt id either do shirtless or mayb an open black vest? i dont think hed have the bandages on tho cause there isnt a lot of close combat fighting for him
hair: im thinking http://www.ebay.com/itm/KW127-Auburn-Red-Spike-Short-Men-Cosplay-Show-Full-Wig-/270953955547?pt=US_CSA_MWA_Wigs_Extensions&hash=it em3f161d40db this tho ive never used this seller i just like the wig style. as for the hair clip, id prob make a sweatband type of piece w the clip on it cause the hair clip might b too girly
n the gun sounds perfect!!!!!!!
good luck

Oh my God this would be amazing! Yes, shirtles is the way to go and MAKE SURE YOU KEEP THE HAIR CLIP. People might not know who you are with out it. And also the scarf sounds like a pretty good idea to keep because that's another huge Yoko identifier

In the version in your attached image the male yoko has pants and a sort of sleeveless shirt thingy. Shirtless with the scarf works for me but I kno some con's have shirtless rules. For instance the one I go to says that everyone male or female has to hav their nipples covered at all times. Plus if you used pants you wouldn't have to worry about the sock issue. I think either pants or shorts would look good I would go with either depending on the weather lol. I'd be interested on how it turns out I did a male to female Simon a few years back :P

Frick! Thanks for bringing this up! The policy isss: "Absolutely no nudity. Zenkaikon staff reserves the right to ask an attendee to change clothes if their clothing (or lack thereof) is deemed inappropriate for a family friendly event."

I hopes my nips will pass the test!


I know that I cant bring my rifle Because it is made from a modified Airsoft rifle. But what evs! Less to carry.
