Crossplay tips (Gals and Guys)


  •  (verb) A subset of cosplay; to wear a costume where the character in question is of the opposite sex as the cosplayer.                                                                                                                            - Cosplay.com thread ( http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=18966 )

What you need for crossplay?

For girls:

  • Bronzer
  • Chest binder (Either one of the FF: Bandage, cloth, garrison belt, compression shirt)
  • eyeliner
  • nude lipstick (you can also use concealer, but it tends to look too pale)

You put a bit of eyeliner to your eyebrows (Use a brown eyeliner if the character's hair color is black or brown. though, it also depends on the character)

You can also put some lines on the side of your eyes using eyeliner.

Apply bronzer to the FF areas: (again, it also depends on the character)
~Nose bridge
~Jaw line
~Upper cheek bone

Oh, don't forget to cut your fingernails~

If you want to be more convincing, you should walk like a guy. :D

BTW, there's a chance you'll look gay like me xD

My Crossplay tales:

Me cosplaying as Heisuke ^^
Ugh, I hate the way I tied the yellow part </3

For guys:
  • Falsies (For bigger eyes. But this is optional)
  • make-up
  • lipstick (Any color that resembles natural female lips)
  • Bra and pads

If you have hairy legs and you don't want to shave it, you can use skin tone stockings to make your legs more slender. (I think guys has better legs than females minus the hair) 

Wear a bra. You might want to put pads in it. xD

to be more convincing, walk like a girl. that means swaying your hips(naturally) when walking
and keeping your legs together when sitting.

and ermmm, no awkward or unwanted bulges. =))
