-Hit the gym and actually take it seriously. Go with Mark Rippetoe’s starting strength if you’re a total n00b. In the beginning even if you’re in a deficit you’ll still build newbie muscle by merit of CNS adaptation. It gets a lot harder after that.

-Count your calories. There’s many calculators out there if you’re really trying to min-max but a roughshod amount to get ripped is to take your current weight in pounds and slap another 0 at the end of it to get what you should be intaking daily to lean out. A gram of protein per pound of body weight is another good general amount to be getting.

-Shower, and have a basic knowledge of grooming and personal hygiene.

-Don’t be completely fucking autistic when it comes to socialization. If you look good people are far more likely to put up with your shenanigans but everyone has a limit.

-If impatient/lazy look into using steroids or SARMs.

Had a terrible experience with someone who looked like one of those guys. Rock solid abs, confident, but I think the biggest problem is that people like them are used to women who aren't looking to be pleasured. Which is extremely common as some of them just want bragging rights to say "I fucked that guy!"

Seek cosplays that cover your face. Phantom of the Opera is a classical romance because women love mystery. Mostly hidden face and popular are a winning combo.

If you want to look attractive to girls, cosplay someone made for the female gaze. Look at what characters girls like. P.S; it's not shirtless hunks, it's pretty boys.

As long as you don't look like total shit.

Costhots are easy mode. Killstar goth gear+anime wig of choice is premium content for some people. If you don't want to get stalked by 16 year olds, try quality instead of just going topless or half assing everything.

Ehhhh I'm just going to work out, if how I look after losing some pounds is even 50% of my brothers, I'll be more than fine in just about any cosplay. I've always liked the pretty boy cosplays, time to finally join in

When I was lean and ripped (I did bodyweight/gymnastics training) I got a lot of attention but most thought I was gay. Now I'm chubby and I get I look "powerful" and get hit on a lot more by women. I don't get it. I dress the same and act the same as I did then.

honestly depending on the type of girl you want you can get attention as a bishounen character like any of the non-shota Ouran High School Host club boys, or be skinny with light muscle tone and go as someone from Free.

>>10738848
Can confirm. I went as Galo from Promare and I got few attention. Then I went as Zhongli and I even went as far as applying make-up that Zhongli has and it turns out I got a fuck more attention. Then I went as Chrom from Fire Emblem Awakening at a smaller con and I got more attention as him than I did as Galo.

Unless you are a retailer, your cost of just buying a cosplay will almost always be equal to the cost of making. You will need certain machinery or at least the tools to glue seams together. Nothing will look the way you will want it to look without paying at least $200.

So either have it custom made, or spend out the ass on fabrics and armor pieces. Either way, it will not be cheap unless you want to look cheap.
>>
>>10743282
That's not true I'm 20. Plus many young people who watch anime watch older anime in addition to current ones. Sailor Moon and Cardcaptor Sakura are extremely popular and almost everyone watches those at least a bit. I watched Mermaid Melody despite it being kind of old by the time I found it.

Besides it was just an example. Just be the flavor of the month pretty boy. Slim, toned, and tall, instead of ripped. Unless you're going as a Jojo character in which case you need to be very cut and ripped and hype up the homoerotic elements.
>>
>>10743282
there aren't anymore years, anon. people have been watching anime from the 80s n shit now.

nah, making the cosplay will definitely exceed the cost of purchasing it, especially with genshin since you need to custom print fabrics.

Nta but if you're a dude and want to be super chill about it you can do the 3-step more western method which is just: cleanse, tone, moisturize. Use a good cleanser, use toner, and use some form of moisturizer (oil free or water based if you have oily skin).

there's no korean 10 step anything. even people in korea just use what they need. buy the products you need for your skin type and use them daily.

This is it 100%. Makeup + wigs go a REALLY far way in making them look good. The amount of in cosplay -> out of cosplay comparisons where the former is an 8 and the latter is a 4 is INSANE.

>have a basic knowledge of grooming and personal hygiene.
Elaborate.

shower, shave, brush teeth, wear antiperspirant, wear freshly cleaned clothes.

Is your only goal to get maximum attention from women/get laid? Then you should

>Look into popular series/games and which characters are the most simped in those series. Currently that's gacha games and few popular series like JJK, Jojo, KNY, Chainsaw Man etc.
>Realistically see if you're able to pull the characters off with your body type/face. You don't have to be 1:1 clone, you just need to be able to produce an okay match with makeup or clothes. If you have an average body/face, you're probably good.
>Git gud at makeup and styling wigs.
>Consider a character with a (partial) mask if you're not totally confident with your face.
>Any character with a suit is usually considered hot. Just make sure the suit fits.
>Lifting is not necessary in most cases, a lot of women are into skinny anime boys
>>
>>10743835
>Look into popular series/games and which characters are the most simped in those series.
Make sure you actually like the series because girls want to talk you about the series that you're from and want to judge you based on your interests or hot takes. A lot of them do it as a shit test to see if you're not a poser btw.
>Jojo
If you just want to cosplay to pick up girls, most girls are heavily invested into the Part 5 guys due to their pretty boy aesthetics. Jotaro is the only exception because of his bad boy attitude.
>Git gud at makeup and styling wigs.
This is a huge plus. When I gotten better with makeup and wig styling, people were especially complimenting my wigs. Years ago, I would used to overly apply hair spray on a messy wig and called it "spiky". For makeup, I didn't know until now that applying light foundation and filling in my brows would make a big difference in photos.
>Lifting is not necessary in most cases, a lot of women are into skinny anime boys
That's false, I received more compliments and girls staring at me, approaching me, and even touching me when I was more muscular than I was skinny.

tldr; Like this whole thread is saying, just take care of your looks, lift, eat right, and be genuine of your interests and hobbies.
>>
>>10738387
My dude most girls on here like feminine guys so your looking in the wrong place if you want to get ripped. In my experience as a weight lifter most women enjoy muscles but they are not a replacement for a shitty personality. Looks might get you into the door but personality is what most women find attractive. Also, don't work out to get girls work out for you and to become the best version of yourself. Same thing for cosplay and cons don't go to bag chicks go to have fun and cosplay as something you would enjoy. If you want to smash just go on tinder and put the radius to 1 mile well at the con and you instantly have all the introvert girls who also want to smash at the con and you are no longer the creepy goku without a shirt. But personally I just like being the biggest guy in the room so people can't say shit to me when they find out I like to cosplay and watch girly anime.

>>
>>10774906
Hate to break your bubble but Albedo isn't really talked about. When it comes to short Genshin dudes, most girls absolutely Xiao with Kazuha as a very a close second. Venti and Bennett are also popular because of meta. If you just love Albedo, then go as him and just have fun.

It's disappointing there aren't that many decent cosplays for short guys.
All the shorter characters are young/twinks, while anything that's armored ends up with weird proportions when you're short

So unless you're aggressively overweight or 40 years old, you can trim up and do that too?
>while anything that's armored ends up with weird proportions when you're short
There's plenty of Dwarf characters in anime and video games that are short with armor.

Now if your complaint is that you think that you're a manlet at 5'8", either suck it up and do the cosplay you wanted to do anyways, or get over your phobia of women laughing at you for being short and cosplay an actual short character.

Always wanted to do a Kirin cosplay but with my body I'll just look like a gay pride unicorn, way too skinny
I'll probably have to put on like 20lbs of muscle before I'm comfortable showing that much skin

>>10789480
yes she can, it's like the entire point of the series.

What are some good low effort cosplays for men? Thinking about doing a psycho from borderlands right now since I am somewhat muscular and the mask is cheap. I don't have much time to think it over since I plan on going to the anime magic convention. Never done cosplay before or attended a convention.

The quickest way to look like you put on 20lbs of muscle is to lose 20lbs of fat.
>>
>>10790449
What language did you play the game in?
You missed the point entirely.
You can't love anyone when you're dead and 2B died out of a misplaced sense of duty instead of doing anything to stay with 9S. Her morals were more important to her than 9S, but 2B was more important to 9S than anything.

Pretty boy = indications of health, good facial structure and dimorphic male features. Elvis Presley had lips and eyelashes that would make a kardashian seethe, every posterboy on girl's bedrooms has thick healthy hair and glowing skin, and the bodyfat and muscles of an active hunter gatherer (not a balding old roidmonkey with lizard skin). Youth and health = attractive, so called prettyboys have both in spades.

Op, you don't seem very socially aware, how handsome are you? If people other than you mother regularly call you handsome or attractive and you get friendly or desiring looks from girls you are.

People don't like it when people don't stay in their lane. Being a cosplayer isn't like being a rock star or highly talented guy where average looks are amplified by star status, the "talent" of a cosplayer is either glueing foam together or being extremely hot/good at frauding being hot.

So if you're not hot and you put yourself out there in skimpy clothes like you are, be prepared to be brutally shot down. The meme about Chad doing odd things and people finding it quirky and interesting, but an ugly guy doing them and being rejected as a autist or freak is very true.

Sorry, its just nature, cope all you want but the same selection of and bias towards healthy, genetically strong individuals occurs in most animal kingdoms (we are the only ones who attempt to give lower attraction males mates by enforcing monogamy and look how Tinder is sweeping that construct away with the top 20% of males getting most of the females)

If you're not hot, you can try to improve what you have, but work on acceptance too. Underneath all the glitter of male-advanced civilisation human life is just as darwinian and uncaring as any other species and now, more than ever in recent civilisational history, women are the arbiters of gene selection by controlling access to breeding.

Actually good looking guy here. Wearing some sort of cosplay, even a shitty aliexpress $50 one, makes it way more likely shy/introverted girls are going to talk to you at a con. If I walk up to a girl at a con in normal clothes she's just going to automatically assume I'm attracted to her and get nervous. Being in cosplay let's girls think maybe you're just being friendly. That said, girls absolutely do not give a shit how much effort you put into your cosplay UNLESS they're ALREADY attracted to you. I've seen guys in extremely elaborate and expensive cosplay get ignored while girls pay attention to me in my shitty cosplay I bought from China because nice face
Just get plastic surgery tho I guess?

saihara was my third cosplay and let me tell you, the danganronpa cosplay community is fucking awful. it's mostly underage kids that ship all the straight characters together. i wore saihara once to a con, saw exactly who was at the photoshoot, and swore off from never wearing a DR cosplay again.

which is a shame, because I really like the character designs and the games.

Yes, this has been a known thing for men for a very long time, nothing new. Despite how women shit and seethe about societies "beauty standards" for a man to be found physically attractive by any standard amount of people he has to be ATLEAST an 8/10 face and body wise. Combine that with women having much lower sex drives then men, if you're even an above average guy, you're not going to see much play without a lot of leg work on your part.
There's a reason why men are almost always sought after for what they can do or offer.

Its been brought up a few times in this thread how important basic male makeup is for cosplay when you're doing a pretty boy or something that isn't showing off your body. Does anyone have any good place to learn this? I try looking up tutorials on YouTube and it's all for females doing makeup to cosplay male characters. Is there a certain term I should be using?

20+ year old girls that say that they want pretty thin boys are usually the controlling, drama-prone type of girls that want a weak effeminate men to order around. (i.e. most girls on 4chan). if you want more normal girls... keep lifting and stay at around 10-15% bodyfat

If you cosplay as Griffith you will unironically get huge amount of attention from girls, especially if you make the full armor set.
>>
>>10755019
Wrong, guts is more popular among women.
Source:the guts body pillows I made sold out before my Griffith ones did.
>>
>>10794772
>guts is more popular among women.
I don't believe that for a second. I don't see women really talking about reading berserk period, and I would imagine the ones that do find Grifith much more attractive than guts even after everything he did. "Local Man too Angry to Die" isn't exactly a popular archetype among women.
>>
>>10794214
So how does this work? Do I just casually approach young tight broads in genshin cosplay who appear to be singly and vulnerable and offer to buy them a figurine at the dealers room in exchange for a beej at my hotel down the marriot? How do I flex my wealth at anime conventions? Im a pretty loaded dude thanks to my professional career but it’s not like I can show them the title to my car or home owners title. Im also older and fatter but I guess the only thing I have going on is I make well over 150k a year for just clicking shit on a computer. I also have a gf but yknow sometimes there are occasional urges to eye-dabble on a kitkat from time to time if you know what I mean, heh.

Why does it seem like there are so few guys who cosplay Genshin compared to all the girls I see? I thought it was the key to getting into parties and getting laid at cons
>>
>>10798585
Most guys are not cute enough for a good genshin cosplay and the few that ARE cute enough are simply too based to do such a boring lame-ass cosplay.

Plus, in general, male cosplayers tend to focus on doing somebody from their favourite anime/game/movie or a character they really like or find cool. The whole "idk who this is, im just cosplaying it because its whats popular right now" is mainly a woman thing (not exclusively, but mainly)
You very rarely get guys who havent watched the source material for the thing they are cosplaying
>>
>>10797141
You have better luck with hookers
>>
>>10798585
they do but they look like shit so you never see pictures of them online. The average male cosplayer won't put effort into makeup or into not being fat. It's a miracle if they bother styling their wig. And with Genshin, the boys are so pretty that the discrepancy between the cosplayers and the characters is jarring. The only good male Genshin cosplayers are gay guys.
