Easy/Simple Crossplays (for a female being a male)

I've actually been kind of curious to crossplay but haven't gotten around to it. I need to buy a compression shirt because I kind of have large uh, boobs so I always had a huge issue with binding. But I have done a lot of research on that matter for larger chested girls. I'm trying to think of good easy/simple male characters and I have a few in mind. But suggestions would be great. I'm wondering if I could pass off for a guy. X3

I already want to try Ciel and Sebastian from Black Butler, but I think Ciel is easy since he's girly looking because he 12 or 13 so... lol

I don't know if you're familiar with it (because likely it was either omfg your childhood or it wasn't, by and large) but a group of friends and I are doing a Yu Yu Hakusho group crossplay, and in planning I was struck by how nearly every costume we're doing is along the lines of Baby's First Crossplay.

Yusuke is a baby-faced fourteen year old cutie punk who wears girl jeans and things that can be found in a thrift store, Hiei is 4'11" to 5'3" tops and would look almost exactly like his moetastic sister if not for the hair and the fact that he's composed of 90% PURE HATE, and Kurama has luscious long hair and eyelashes by Revlon, wears a magenta school uniform when he's not wearing flowing tunics that resemble qipao, fights with pretty flowers, and is mistaken for a woman both by fans and in the manga.

(And then there's our guy friend cosplaying Mukuro, whose first big reveal was Surprise Everyone I'm A Lady, but that's less relevant to you.)

At any rate, all three of the guys mentioned have at least a few recognizable canon outfits with loose shirts. When I cosplay Hiei, I just use the "two one-size-smaller sports bras" method in combination with a loose-fitting shirt, and it works fine. (I'm a C-cup, since that's probably relevant to whether or not it'll work for you.)

I am familiar with Yu Yu Hakusho. Watched it here or there. Good series, should watch it more. I go to thrift stores a lot for cosplay.

I'm considering Persona 3 and 4, but there's male and female characters I like from both.

If you're short, then Honey from Ouran. More shota-ish characters work better.
