How important could cheeks be?

OK, we all know that most people lose their baby fat in their faces and cheekbones start becoming more prominent when they become older, so this uses to help calcuating your age, of course some people lose it earlier or later than others.

Do you consider this an obstacle for cosplaying characters who are younger than you?

I'm working on cosplaying a character of mine who is 14, and I'm 27, but people say I look 19 and I still preserve some chubbyness in my face, so I guess it won't be a very big problem for me at the moment, but I'm sometimes wondering if I'll can still do it if my face becomes fully formed.

What's your opinion on this topic?

I know how you feel. I've had the chipmunk cheeks my entire life due to it being a family trait, but no matter what I do, or how skinny I get, I can't lose them. I've always looked at least 5 years younger than I actually am --which made dating a complete disaster. (IMHO - no one's actually said this to me) guys probably thought I was under age when I was actually old enough to throw back drinks with them. (in example.)

I just want a face that isn't round in order to the play the characters I want to play. I do consider it an obstacle. Sadly, it's one I don't know how to get around. I have a small mouth, which doesn't help.

If anyone has any tips on getting rid of chipmunk cheeks, please help. ((also, I'm not considered overweight, I work out regularly, eat right, and ride my bicycle at least 50 miles a week --since it's my car.))

Well, your concern is opposite to mine, but to help you a little I've heard that chewing some gums can help cause constantly movinf your mouth helps you burning the fat in your cheeks, hope this helps ^^'

I have a fairly long face, so I doubt I'll look good dressing up as, say, Amu Hinamori. But I'm going to do it anyway, while I'm still fairly young. I just try to make my face shape look different with make-up and stuff. C:

I have the same problem. I have a very round, child-like face even though I am at a healthy weight and exercise twice a week. To make things worse, I'm also super short, so people constantly think I'm much younger than I am. It does make cosplaying younger characters easier but is quite a disadvantage in real life.

Highlight and contour pallets are AMAZING for this purpose if you have naturally rounder face.

Yeah, I've found that make up can make a huge difference when it comes to facial structure! Although I personally wish I had less cheeks... I like to cosplay ftm a lot and it makes me look more feminine than I'd like them too since my face is pretty feminine without the pudgy cheeks, haha.
