I have a good feminine body but my facial structure. Anybody has any good idea for female characters with masks/partially covered faces to crossplay as? If my face is hidden I could probably pass desu (at least until I open my mouth)
So far I'm thinking Ririka from Kakegurui

Overall do you think it is better to shave the morning before crossplaying or at least leave a day in between to prevent all the itchiness at least in the more core regions of the body(chest, armpits, etc)?

How do you feel about the assertion that crossplay isn't crossdressing because real women don't dress like that IRL?

How do I cope with wanting to crossplay as a character who is almost a full foot shorter than me and knowing it will probably look weird due to that?

If a girl crossplays as astolfo is it crossdressing?
>>
>>10784426
It is sort of nonsensical because it devolves crossdressing into meaninglessness. A lot of female clothing can sort of be rationalized as having been male or gender-neutral at some point in time so crossdressing should be about current cultural perception and crossplay will be perceived as female clothing because the outfit was devised within the constraints of the current culture which views those items as female clothing and which are considered female clothing in that fiction.
It would pose an interesting question as to whether it is crossdressing to crossplay in what would currently be considered women's clothing but which would be considered male or gender-neutral clothing in the fictional setting it has been taken from.

I prefer wearing my glasses as it is a round frame but most of my cosplay has me wear contacts instead. I feel some improvement can be done for my eye makeup but for now this is the best I can do.
>>
>>10785442
yes. crossdressing is the intent to appear as the other sex. astolfo is just a twink guy in girl's clothes. if a girl is cosplaying a male character and that character is crossdressing with the intent to look female, then no, they're not crossplaying. crossdressing/crossplay is all about what your actual sex is and what sex you're trying to appear as. just wearing the clothing of the opposite sex doesn't make it crossdressing/crossplay if you're not trying to appear the opposite sex also. that also includes the character. if you're cosplaying a male in a specific outfit who's trying to look like a woman, you're crossplaying because you have to crossplay as the character, but if you're cosplaying a different outfit of his, it's just cosplay.
>>
>>10786117
A big thing would be to pluck your eyebrows. If you want to keep them for boymode there's a method for gluing them down and painting over them.
>>
>>10786149
Crossdressing I'd say it's more what you appear as externally to others, and not your intent. Otherwise you can get guys who are in full drag, fake tits and all, who can say "I didn't intend to look like a female therefore this isn't crossdressing." We can debate what defines 'crossplay' when it comes to a character. But regardless, if a guy is dressed up as a male character who is dressed up as a girl, that means he are dressed up like a girl, which means he is crossdressing.
>>
>>10786153
that's why i said clothing, drag isn't simply clothing to begin with. and crossplay is totally about intent. twinks that people mistake for girls aren't suddenly crossplaying just because they trapped successfully.
>>
>>10786171
But that's absolutely crossdressing. You can't just walk around in a schoolgirl uniform and say it's not crossdressing.

Crossdressing isn't even real since it's made up bullshit that certain clothes should be worn by men or women. Look at victorian era men in europe, they wore dresses!
>>
>>10786195
There's nothing wrong with cross dressing. I'm not going to say they "should" or "shouldn't" wear whatever. But to say it's not cross dressing is just ignoring reality.
>>
>>10786189
brouhous aren't crossdressing.

>>10786152
thank you! do you have any preferred tutorials? a quick search shows that nyx eyebrow glue is a popular choice.
>>
>>10784153
Anime girls in masks don't seem too common. The only ones I can think of from the top of my head are Kuki Shinobu (genshin impact, lower face mask), and Sakamata Chloe (hololive, upper face mask).
That said, if you only need the lower face covered, consider winter outfit characters with scarves covering the neck and lower-face, or "ninja characters", who tend to cover their mouths.
If you need a full-face mask, there are also characters that wear masks somewhere around their head/neck normally (e.g. certain miko characters, girls in festival wear, oni's, RO365 Mod III from Girl's Frontline etc). You could try one of these characters, dressed as if they chose to wear the mask instead.
>>
>>10784153
Any female character from Tokyo Ghoul will have a mask you can put on

I want makeup like pic rel?
How did she make her lips look like that, what exactly did she do?
How do i make my esebrows look like that?
How am i supposed to put eyeliner on the edge of my eye? I always end up having a small uncolored line just at the edge, on the bit where it curves into my eye. Do i finish that with mascara or am i missing something?
Does she have any eye shadow at all?
What did she do to make hee face look like that?
Is there a way to make my eyebrows look like that without too much plucking or shading?
How do i make a synthetic wig perfectly 100% straight and how do i style it to look just like that?
Also how is she flexing her face to have that expression, she's not just relaxing it?
I want to know how to atleast have a bitch face

I saw you at AX I think.
>>
>>10787945
Yup, that was me! I forgot what that line was for; all I remember was that it was for a premiere in the main hall. Since AX, I noticed that the hair ornaments on my wig were on the wrong side, and it took a while to eventually notice. Your photo confirms it, since mirrors and photos taken in a selfie mode tend to be horizontally flipped. Thanks for that.
>>
what's an easy first crossplay? (that still looks decent)
>>
Does anyone have a good guide on getting a smooth face? I am apparently awful at shaving, even when I'm using the sharpest razor and getting close enough to get frequent cuts it still has visible stubble even if it feels smooth. I think I need a combo process of how to get as much hair gone as possible and makeup to hide it too.
>>
>>10788397
Depends on what you look like. What's "easy" to cosplay for one person might not be so easy for another.
>>
>>10788495
Personally, because I didn't want to deal with shaving while at AX, I decided to just pluck it all off the day before. Make sure your face is clean before attempting and take your time.
>>
Should I try to wear enough makeup to pass or just wear a mask and a lot of eye makeup? Do people care about the face being visible that much? Idk how feminine I can look I've got a strong jaw but no chin and figure it might be best to just cover it up.
>>
>>10788582
wear a mask and put a lot of effort in your eye makeup
>>
>>10788584
I do this, mask feels like cheating how well it works

Do not interact with them.
>>
>>10784175
No. I have a trad wife and 3 white children. I go to church every Sunday and confess my sins. Just because I let the twinks at the gym blow me while I watch straight porn doesnt make me gay. Going to a con and fucking some troo doesnt make me gay. I am doing my part to save the white race and be an upstanding Christian. Go and my family will forgive me my sins, just so long as I do not guve into cultural marxism and identify as gay. Unfortunately god gave me a high sex drive and even though I fuck my wife twice a day and have a side piece at the office I use for head or getting a nut off doesnt make me gay. Even if I never qcted my thoughts and lusts would
Make me a sinner, thats why I need God. But as long as you never identify as gay and have white children, youre doing the Lord’s work
>>
>>10789955
Probably bait, but read 1 Corinthians 6:9-10
>9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.
You are saved by grace through faith, and not by works, but your actions speak of a man who rejects the Holy Spirit. Be careful that you are not deceived.
>>10788397
In my experience, anything that covers a fair bit of skin. Don't pick some character in a crop top and booty shorts because it's going to be exceptionally difficult to make it look feminine. Furthermore, try to find a character with a mask, or just wear a face mask. It may look a little out of place, but good face makeup is another really difficult part for first-timers, and a mask is more appealing than a masculine face in this context.

hi anons. I've mostly done low effort cosplays before but I'm thinking of properly crossplaying as 25ji Miku as in the picture. For someone with a skinny and slightly masculine build, do you guys think it would be worth giving it a shot? I'd probably put together some tights instead of the sock and bare leg though.

yes to both. you're gay. penis = male. hell, the reason it's called a trap is because it's tricking you into being gay. you are probably biologically bi then, faggot.

Well fine, what's the advice on diy foam hip/butt forms vs buying?
I need some sort of feminine enhancement for my figure and while I kind of want to make it myself so I can go over the top, I imagine making them smooth and even would be a challenge.
>>
>>10793408
it's easy. I used an old foam mattress.
to wear it you're gonna need a slightly larger than you need pair of leggings, then over that you put on some tighter leggings, stockings, or whatever to hold the shape. I haven't tried this tho cause i dislike skirts, i just put on a pair of sweatpants over it and it looks fine
>>
>>10793437
Nice, thanks for the tip!
For the breasts, I'm probably going to save up for a prosthetic. Seems like movement is more important up top, so having gel or liquid or something is the move.

Mount Lady is the first one that comes to mind. She's a superhero, so a little muscular would be okay. Build yourself some nice hips and you're off to the races...
