>>10757398Hips and chest should be roughly 1×1 to appear feminine?Hips are about 110ish cm and chest is 105ishCurrently, with pads, both are about a meter and with my outfit it looks really real For reference, i am 170cm tall, my chest is 75 cm and my hips are 90cm, my shoulders are almost exactly 1m
>>10758155The tita themselves are a 15cm styrofoam ball split in half, that means 7.5cm long and 30cm wide total
>>10758157damn I didn't think of styrofoam balls thats a perfect idea to save money thank you
>>10755747This was overtightened but corsets are comfy.
>>10758163Just after you cut it put wood glue or something on the base so it doesn't flake off. No way you'll be able to make a perfect clean cut so pick out anything that sticks out too much beforehand, holes don't matter
>>10758499Ok update on the styrofoam cause it can warp.Hadn't really used that big of a ball before so clothes that otherwise weren't so tight kept pulling them harder than usual.I guess keep that in mind when going bigger. Idk if they actually shrunk or just got a bit deformedAlso what is a good craft store material that i can get to simualte skin? I think i'll br showing cleavage and i'd rather make that bit myself. Also gives me an excuse to look at pictures of boobs
>>10758520You guys be the judge but there is obvious chafing and warping on the side where it was in contact with the other boob (left)This might actually give me a better result cause it makes it less obvioudly circular and more "pressed together" but idk. I made them bigger cause they just didn't make my shoulders look that small so that might just bring back the issue
>>10758499Turns out you can buy half sphere styrofoam balls too and not need any cutting!
>>10758520Easy-ish way to make cleavage with spandex.
>>10758737At what kind of store can i get it?
>>10758737What materials are all of those I can't read it
Who are the easiest characters to cosplay as for a beginner?
Anyone got any tips for presenting as a trap?stuff like posture, mannerisms, specific makeup tipsI feel like a lot of traps pass better than a lot of transwomen and I wanna take on that challenge
>>10759391foam board and soft upholstery/cushion foam/sponge.
>>10759391Here's a video tutorial of the same method:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3_51E05Ifw
>>10760054Walk with feet stepping on the same line, and with shorter steps. Speech is an entire thing that I'm not even gonna get in, there's enough videos online to help.But dear God cover your shoulders and hands best you can
>>10760254ThanksI get how to do shoulders but what about hands?Wear long sleeves all the time?
>>10760290Longer sleeves, lolita wrist cuff type deals, opera gloves, or some sort of sleeve thing.Cam whoring aside, something like these. Had a shirt I hacked the arms off, and found when worn backward, they made a great forearm/wrist concealer.The gloves were separate. Just what I had on for that picture
>>10760254>But dear God cover your shoulders and hands best you canHmmm. I have seen my share of male and female shoulders and hands, and I can say that both are quite diverse and you can't automatically (except in some rare cases) say that some hands or shoulders belong to one group and not the other. So I don't think that advice should be so generic. Maybe change it to something like "Cover your shoulders and hands if they are too big/muscular, unless you are going for a big\muscular girl impression"?
>>10760466Some range finding scopes use 19inches as a reference because from man to man it's a very consistent width.If a male wears spaghetti straps, it's damn sure to stick out
>>10760523>19inchesBut I'm 15.8"...
Finally a new thread.
Doing a jinx soon. I am very tall 6 foot, 135lbs so I feel like I have the scrawny down, but is there any way to make the shoulders appear less broad? The top having so much bare skin worries me a bit. Also need to look into how to do a good girl voice. I have put a ton of work and money into making the props / wig / outfit so hopefully it goes smoothly but it never really does lol. The gf has been practicing the makeup routine and while it's not perfect it is improving.
>>10760579>is there any way to make the shoulders appear less broad?You are in luck, my friend. Diagonal lines towards the neck make shoulders appear narrower, and, guess what, they walk hand in hand winth Jinx's designs.
>>10760584Nice that's good, is it worth using anything to hide midriff stubble I can shave but some tiny bits of stubble still remain.
>>10760620You can just pluck them all. It will take a lot of time, but will look smooth for a couple of days at least.
>>10760774Plucking will take forever. Wax.
>>10760990>>10760774epilating works as well
>>10760254I think showing shoulders is fine desu. It's about how you present yourself
Not sure if this is the right place, I don't want to break any rulesBut does anyone have a recommendation for where to get a good 2b costumeI'm planning on crossplaying as 2b for AX
>>10761393is that a dude cause damn
>>10761469Yeah and I think I found a good costume and bootsBoots were a real issue because I already have big man feet but I eventually found one that appears to have my sizeReally excited for this, will keep things posted
Do y'all do hip padding? I have been debating making my own vs just buying some slider shorts eith big hip padding that look smooth vs something else.
>>10761472Can I get a link to where you found it? Not gonna be at AX but have been trying to find a decent 2b costume for months now.
>>10761926yeah ofcI found mine on a website, cosplayshow the $74 version of the costumeit seems a little sketchy, but I found multiple reviews for both the website and the costume itself and both were very goodI ordered the largest female size, and other than the hip which I can pad, I think I actually would fit it quite wellI probably will also do some modifications, the gloves don't seem impossible to make if they don't fit my man handsthe boots were a much harder thing to find in my size, I wear a mens US 11.5-12, which is about a women's size 14I couldn't find any women's boots in size 13 or larger, but I eventually found these from what appears to be a bit of a foot fetishist site which carried 14skinda worried about them not being wide enough, or my calves being too big, but some of the reviews are from men and it seems goodI live really close to where it was shipped from so those boots are arriving today and I'll be able to see how well they fit and ill post my findings here
>>10761957Got the boots just nowThey fit really wellBoth fortunately and unfortunately the black "boot" part is just kinda a nylon stockingBut overall I'm really happy with this being my only optionIf you've got smaller feet I'd recommend looking for normal thighhigh boots, but if you can't this is still a great option
I like to dress up as 50s housewife and than larp in my flat and clean and bake cake (i know, i know...)The problem: I cannot find shoes that match my outfit. Every women shoes for mens size are mostly extravagant or outright fetish.Is there a site where i can find boots that look like this in a bigger size?
>>10761512Here's a good video on how to make your own-Part 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B_z6ct7IcaIPart 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibYTgw6LUIU&t=0sBut I find usually use thinner (1") foam and taper the edges even more- at least 3" in from each edge and 6" up from the bottom.
>>10757398Recommendations for any corset or waist nippers?I don't want to spend a bunch of money on some cheap one on Amazon that would just fall apart
>>10761957Thanks so much bro, I appreciate the details too.
>>10761512Just find some foam, a mattress is fine.Cut it down until you have a boars about 5cm wide, then cut out the rough shape and split it in half. Use a bread knife and scissorss. After that just taper itThe other anon gives good tutorials
>>10761472Wait that's you?
>>10762523No that's not meThat's just a random(male) cosplayer that I'm using for referenceAlso holy shit I just realized, I am 6'6" when wearing heelsLuckily I think 2B is one of the few characters that can get away with it
Heya I'm back.Tried applying makeup, what do you think? Is it overdone? Too light? Is the color wrong?I had eyeliners, eyeshadows, blush, and lipstick on the picture but somehow the camera doesn't really pick it up even though I think it'll be too much if I add more :sJust an okay/weird comment will also help. Thanks!
>>10762743Also, I'm planning to go to a con like this. Is it weird? Will I get hatecrimed?
>>10762743>>10762744I'm not a makeup expert so I can't point out what needs to be improvedBut I think you look goodIf you didn't tell me you were crossplaying I wouldn't knowYou just look like a normal girl
>>10762743looks nice! didn't realize what thread this was in until i scrolled up, so i didn't realize you were crossplaying, as a girl i think the makeup looks normal and not over the top. cute shade of lipstick. your wig may be a bit shiny but it could be the lighting as well
Is this a safe first crossplay? I'm latino and have the skin tone I think. Looking convincingly like a girl is something I want but really I just don't want to look like an ugly weirdo.
>>10763026I think Korra would be a really good one to start out withher outfit is kinda guides you towards her face so make sure its nice and clear looking
>>10763040My face is completely smooth and I don't have any acne. And I got my facial hair lasered so I don't have any stubble either. I think I'm ok in that department.But I'm worried about having broader shoulders in that outfit since they're exposed? I don't know if sleeveless makes it less or more of a problem. I think maybe the wider pants will offset that though but I don't know much about how you dress down body parts.
>>10763049You can't really super dress them down since they're exposed, but you can probably play around with the subtleties of the armhole and the angle of the blue/white around that area to draw the eye "in", making the shoulder look smaller. I suggest you also try and create balance with more curves - boobs and a "female" waist shape and let the baggy pants help create the suggestion of hips/butt although you may want to pad anyway since they sit on the low waist/high hip, which is typically shaped much differently for women.
I'm doing Zero Suit Samus, used a bunch of foam padding to get the feminine shape correct, I have some heels ready too to craft up a bit, but I honestly have no idea what to do about the gun. Should I just buy a nerf gun and paint it? Should I try to ask someone to 3D print it or something? I'm trying to keep my gun budget in the 20-30 dollar range so I doubt I can just buy a replica gun someone is selling.
>>10763437Your ass is too bony, that's tbe most important part. You need your pads to be bigger. Bare minimum from hip to knee.Idk your shoulder width, but it also looks like you need bigger tit pads. Just a bit, though, to shift focus from your shoulders
How to straighten a pretty kong (almost all the way from my head to my ass) wig? How long should i wash it? How should i comb it? Should i use a comb with large bristles or smaller ones?
>>10763536I appreciate the feedback anon! I will try to do you proud.When it's finished I'll come back with proper pics rather than just 'test' images.
