Male Yuffie -Help

Hey!

I'm looking to do a male version of Yuffie Kisaragi, but have become thoroughly confused about how to go about it.

I'm thinking about doing a hybrid of the Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy VII Yuffie costumes. I am wondering whether anyone has any input on how I could do this effectively, so that it looked good on a guy and remained loyal to the original design.

I'm 5'11, I have brown hair (not unlike Yuffie's) and I am moderately skinny with medium-sized shoulders. I am not adverse to showing some skin, but I would like to keep this as tasteful as possible.

I would really appreciate any feedback or ideas.

My brother was thinking of doing the same thing. Best advice as far as taste, make the shorts a bit longer than the original(and baggier if possible).

L.O.L. Yes indeed this will be a fun one, which version will you be doing? AC or Normal version ? I think short shorts will be funny, but yeah, longer might be better if you're kinda portly or anything like the average anime fan

Normally, I'd go on about how this belongs in the final fantasy forums, but I was distracted by your awesome desgins. This will definately work, and look VERY flattering as well....

I don't want to sound rude...just not sure how to approach the question.

Are you trying to find a Man-ish Version or Gay-ish Version design of Male Yuffie?

I mean no offence to Strawberry neko's design, but in case youre not comfortable with high-cut shirt and really short pants... I'd be happy to design you something more man-ish.

That's an awesome design, thanks. I'm thinking of using this for the next CNAnime.

It walks that thin line between being loyalty to the character and looking flattering on someone of the opposite sex. What's more remarkable is that you did this all out of good will. Thanks so much.
