Girl > Boy crossplay. ^^;;

Hrm..

im considering cosplaying hyde from L'Arc~en~Ciel for the jpop dance at AnimeNorth...

I look REALLY silly with a black shroom but...*sigh* SO unfeminine...*_* but i guess that IS the point...

what about you girls though? do you get wigs or chop off your hair?? X_x

and what about chest-size? X_X do girls as guys not bother with it or wear something REALLY constricting? ^^;;

another thing...eyebrows...how many of you pencil on thicker eyebrows to look more ... boy-ish?

help. x_x

suggestions??

How tight are we talking here? Depending on how you strap em down, tight is no issue. It's STRAPPING THEM DOWN that's the issue. XD

I'd get a wig, personally. That's just me. Big wig fan. ^^;

As for eyebrows, I'm not really sure. O.o

I always go the wig rout - I've got more wigs then I know what to do with.

I have got dark eyebrows - so only time I do something with them is when I wear a light wig I try to thin them down a bit.

I'll vouch for wigs, too.
And my eyebrows are big enough as it is... if anything, I try to make 'em look smaller. I'm a big fan of waxing, personally. ^^;
As for binding etc. my chest is also.. rather.. unsubstantial. So it's easy for me to conceal my femmy figure. North of the border anyway, I've got more than I know what to do with hinder-wise. ><;

What kind? Substancial like a goatee or too-lazy-to-shave-more-than-twice-a-week a la Kaji in Eva?

Spirit gum and really short pieces of wig hair scattered on your face is what I heard for the latter. As for the former, I have no idea how one would make those fake beardthings look more natural. Sorry. ^_^

Bah either both, I would love to have short short hair though. Wigs are better too because it's already styled. I do anything to hide my bust to. I hate it when they are revealed under my shirt. x.X

I don't know anything about pulling of facial hair. Sorry Kell. ^^'

The too-lazy-to-shave Kaji look. lol, speaking of Boromir, I've been pondering doing Aragorn and that's the main thing keeping me from doing it.
I do like that wig hair idea though... I have lots of little random pieces in a baggie from one of my wigs I cut (NEVER THROW ANYTHING AWAY! lol) I may have to break out the spirit gum and do a test run. I'm going to do a couple of searchs... if I find anything I'll post a link here. thanks guys!

I use drafting/artist tape to ''tape them down'' it's easy to remove.

I actually started plucking my eyebrows
for my squall cosplay, but i do extend them slightly.

When I first ever crossplayed I used duct tape around a tanktop beneath my costume.. And then when it got to things like Kuja I began using ace bandages, and have kept using them since. *nods*

Ace bandages are all right, but I prefer my top secret method better. XD
