penny (big bang theory) crossplay

Hi, a couple of my friends and me want to cosplay again, and we had the idea of going as the cast of the Big Bang Theory (the comedy tv show). However, since there are four girls and me being the only guy at the moment, we were thinking it would be more logical if we all dressed up as a character of the opposite sex. So they'd go as the four nerds, and I'd go as Penny (the hot blond chick).

Now although it sounds scary, I would actually like to try it (I kinda like putting on dresses) so if we decide to go through with this, what should I put on to make me look like her? What would be the most fitting outfit (what type of clothes, hair style, cup size,Ö)? I am familiar with the show, but itís really hard to choose a good outfit, since she has so many clothes and hair styles to choose from. If you could give me some suggestions here or put some links to some of her outfits, thatíd be really helpful! X

One more question, should I also wear lingerie underneath, even though no one there will get to see it?

P.S. If I'm going as a girl it will definitely be Penny, so even though she might be easier, no suggestions for Amy please

Lingerie underneath is totally up to you, I know many crossdressers enjoy that sort of thing.

I am a MTF crossplayer myself, but only for anime characters.

Penny is certainly focused as the attractive counterpoint to all the nerds on the show, so an outfit that is slim and sexy would suit a Penny cosplay best. That would also be tough to do in a crossplay manner if you're trying to pass. Just any slim, attractive outfit that fits your body type well would probably be good.

If you want to wear something with a revealing cleavage top, you would want to look up some tricks to create male cleavage that are out there.

Hmm ok, could you perhaps give me a link to this kind of outfit (slim, attractive and cleavage revealing) of Penny from the show you think would be nice? It's really hard for me to choose so I love hearing ohter people's suggestions. Greatly appreciated!

She also seems to wear a lot of feminine colors like pink and pastels. She also wears a lot of dresses as well as spaghetti strap tops with shorts, short skirts, or capri sweats.

For cup size, I'd probably go with a D or higher. When picking out dresses or tops, make sure to allow room for your bra. (Perhaps buy the bra first, measure yourself in it, then pick out your dress/top based on that size.)

Ok, so what do you suggest: a strap top with short, skirt,... or a dress? Do you perhaps want to send a link to a specific Penny outfit from the show you think would be fitting?

I can probably lend the bra from one of the girls, should that be it for lingerie?
