it's one thing I will never be able to do...

Do any of you ladies feel me on this one? I can honestly say that I could NEVER in a MILLION years pull off looking like a guy... bishounen, whatever. My bone structure is simply too feminine, and my body is also extremely feminine.

I actually DID attempt it one time. Put on some guyish clothes and a short wig and stuff.. did my best to strap down my boobies (that's another thing ...I'll get to it later ^^;..) and I took a pic like that. Needless to say everyone who saw that pic laughed their asses off at me. ;-; The general consensus was "never try that again." lol...

...on to the boobies thing. I am a C cup.. and.. yeah. Is it even possible to strap those down? I didn't have any luck at that. (albeit I *did* only try this once..) I'm just curious. I don't have the desire to crossplay in general... I like being a girlie girl... ^^;... BUT, after the failure of my experiment I was curious as all hell to know if any other cosplayers find it impossible to cross that gender barrier as well.

Meh. I've only ever done one crossplay, and I didn't think I would ever do one again. Now I've got 3 on my damned list I wanna do. I don't know if I can make a convincing guy, but if you really like a game/series and there aren't any female characters you like, it's sometimes the only way to express your insanity.

But yah, I have no idea if I make a convincing man, since I'm like, 5'1"!

I know my next crossplay I'm getting platforms. I don't think it matters for Blank (FF9) though, cause he's chibi anyways ^___^

As long as you aren't wearing a skin tight shirt, you can strap 'em down. It isn't hard. Of course, I have a friend who is quite busty yet somehow managed to make herself completely flat.. and I was slackjawed. ^_^; Squuuuiiiiissssh.

My chest hates me from all my crossplay.

Yaaaaaay I don't like the way I look. It's rare when I look at myself and think I'm pretty.
A lot of the time I'm on that edge where.. I can get the androgynous look down.. like with my Kuja costume. But I can't do guys that are very masculine. x_x I've started to put a lot of girls on my cosplay list and I'm starting to get discouraged that I'm simply not cute enough to cosplay them. ._. Or pretty. Feh. But I'm gonna start running out of androgynous guys...
I like makeup. >_>

Wow I don't think I added to the thread at all. I'm tired and depressed right now. ^^; Sorry. *goes to bed* o_x

Spooky, you do NOT look like a "saggy-faced grandma"!!!! You look cute!

I am personally of the opinion that if I pass at all (doubtful), I tend to look like a VERY girly-lookin' guy.

Ah, well. I have enough height to crossplay bish, at least - 5'8.5. Tall, skinny, small boobs, but have to HIDE the hourglass shape.

I have a friend like that. She demonstrated it to me and I was amazed. *laughs* Before, D cup. Then... squiiiiiish... all gone. O_O

> I tend to look like a VERY girly-lookin' guy.

I think most of us do. ^__^
Which is why the goal is to cosplay girly looking men. *laughs*

Most crossplaying girls would only pass at a convention, where the male ideal (for many fangirls) is the overly effeminate bishounen of anime. I mean, put Marron or Zoisite or even Dilandau on the streets, and most people would think they are girls.

> but have to HIDE the hourglass shape.

And it's not easy. ><

As for binding bigger chests, contact Celine, she does a lot of crossplay and I think is in your range.

I keep meaning to crossplay. I've had Allen from Escaflowne in planning for almost two years, and it just hasn't happened ^^;;. But yeah. I think I'd be pretty decent at crossplay. I'm tall, I'm flat-chested, and I don't have anything remotely akin to an hourglass figure :P. And I can look androgynous with makeup. :: points to Aeka costume in her database ::

Sigh. I just have to get sick of making pretty dresses until I get to crossplay ^^.
