Magic shave powder is fine, first time I used it I thought it was going to leave a chemical burn but it didn't just make sure to not touch your head lmao.

You're getting too much into it and your gf has her limits on how much does she like you to crossdress, my dude (viz. she's allowing you to have a likening in crossdressing because she loves you).
But, as you're getting too much into it by being into a specific, quite feminine form of fashion, you will inherently get labeled as such given how they're not something a man usually commits himself to.
Though I second >>10425836 since it is surprising to see such open-mindedness at first but then doesn't want anything further than what you usually crossdress.

I ain't no woman but I understand the suspiciousness given what trannies are doing all over the place right now, including here at /cgl/.

Hi, kinda new to cosplay & cons. My friends were planning on going to a con as soon as the corona crisis is over. We were thinking of doing this kind of crossplay, (don't know if it has a name) with the obvious masculinity contrasting a female character. Anyone got experience/resources on this kind of crossplay?

>> No.10437931

There's a high chance that's a weak attempt at trolling, but in case you are actually serious:
You really don't need any resources for a joke cosplay, other than the piece of advice that the joke gets old very fast.
There is a different way of contrasting male physique with female characters, and that is to make a genderbent version, which involves redesigning the outfit in a way that makes it seem like the character was male in the first place.
Either way, I don't think this thread is for you - people here mostly try to convincingly appear as the other gender.

Have you ever had problems at cons with creeps taking pics of you without permission? I desperately want to try crossplaying but I'm always terrified of ending up on someone's public imgur or stuff like that. I mean, it's kinda flattering and and turns me on a little, but I'd rather not be recognized.

>> No.10438307

You're going to a public convention, in a bright, flashy and attention-seeking outfit. It's silly to get mad or upset at people taking photos. "Creepy" or otherwise, sure it's annoying when some people are taking photos willy nilly when you're just sitting there eating a sandwich or something, but if you didn't want the attention then the only thing for it is to come in plain unassuming clothes.
And I say this having gone to many a convention in plenty of bright, flashy and attention-seeking outfits. What I've done, largely unintentionally, is make it so the costume is obviously incomplete until you actively put on a certain part of it. Won't stop people, but it makes taking photos largely pointless unless they ask first, though may be difficult to have something to take on/off unless it's something like a head to a fully body covering outfit. Might work with wearing a plain zip up jacket or something over it which then gets taken off as well.

>> No.10438531 [DELETED] 

Hmm, I see. I've never cosplayed in any capacity whatsoever but the thought of crossplaying a cute character with so many people eyeing me and asking me for pics pushes all the right buttons.

I'm cool with that and I understand the need for privacy.
On the other hand posting pictures of yourself on a website made to share pictures is pretty much the opposite of private.

You probably answered your own advice request by posting a muscular Madoka, so you already know what to do with regards to a "crossplay" parody of some sort.

It kinda just comes with the territory. I've had about the same amount of people ask to take pictures of/with my alter ego Carmen as my regular cosplays/crossplays.

At MagFest this year, I had a dude come up & talk to me. Super nervous. Asked to get a picture - no problem. But then, he proceeded to just SMASH that "take picture" button & he, like scanned my entire body when he thought I was paying attention.

how to i get rid of the burly square masculine jaw? one thing that separates beautiful crossplayers from ugly freaks is the jaw. putting orange powder to offset the blue stubble isn't goent to make my burly square jaw any closer to a delicate feminine one that anime girls/traps have

>> No.10463993

Contouring with makeup and/or a hairstyle which "shrinks" the jawline. You can find a number of YT videos that show examples of effects of contouring (like all those videos of MUAs making themselves look like celebrities) as well as tutorials on how to do it for your jaw/face shape.

Hi. Probably a very obvous question.
But are there any specifics that I have to consider when looking up my size for female clothes?
I'm only used to the male measurements so I don't know if there is anything that I need to consider to measure.
Also I'm mostly using clothes in European measurements, if that makes a difference.

>> No.10468503

In general you should measure your 3 sizes to get started on looking for stuff that fits.

>> No.10468507

As the other anon said, you need to measure yourself and go by the pure numbers. Size systems aren't normed and therefore don't say much about the actual fit, like an XL could have a waist of 74 cm or 88cm.

Typical measurements you want to hold ready are bust, waist, hips, shoulder width, arm length. Depending on your own heigth, you also need to be careful with the length of clothes you buy.

For shoes it also doesn't hurt to measure your feet from heel to toe.

>> No.10468528

Shoulder width is also important i think. better to buy something a little big that fits your shoulders over something that doesn't. I haven't really had an issue with stuff made in american women's sizes but asian is a whole other can of worms

>> No.10468549

Yeah, the shoulders are the most likely ones to not fit as they're wider on men than on women. It doesn't matter that the other measurements line up if the shoulders don't fit, so you'll have to pay special attention to them and usually buy a bigger size just because of that.

>> No.10468557

Hips to waist ratio (your hips are likely smaller than a woman's), inseam, torso length, lack of room in the crotch for male genitalia, shoulders like other anons mentioned, and arm diameter

>> No.10468574

That will help me already!

NTA but oh shit you're in luck since cute and short femboys are a universal thing to like for gay men--even the ones that only want muscle--so you can absolutely get liked by any type of man, including the cute and handsome ones.
I mean, assuming you aren't mentally ill and won't become a tranny, you can surely improve your life in a constructive way by having a routine to take care of your skin, hair, weight, etc. and be able to sort of empathize why women take so long to get ready when you're living with a girl and want to take her to a date, or so; of course, this can always go beyond to empathize in things like why some women are so insecure when they do not have any makeup whatsoever if they go outside, but this requires further critical thought since this is absolutely something that no man can feel given we're not obligated to always wear makeup, or so.

Outside of this, I have no idea how crossdressing can improve your life overall; maybe if you want to work on something related to makeup, it can always help to know about it?

Don't do it. Facial hair is way more thick/dense than body hair and trying to yank it out like that is going to rip half the skin off your face. If you really want it temporarily removed at the root, your best option would be tweezing.

>> No.10494078

nta but you should make entirely sure the salon does waxes for men's faces otherwise it will be poorly done and painful because usually beards are too wiry for the wax to work that well. you might even get turned away the day of. be really particular and make sure to read reviews and don't do it if you feel unsure. once you find a good salon you are good to go though.

a few things to keep in mind
>don't let the person go over the same area twice with wax
this will burn the skin and cause inflamed hair follicles, any hairs remaining on areas that were already waxed should be plucked with tweezers.
>don't push them to wax if they are worried it's too wiry or you feel unsure
if your beard hairs are too thick it will hurt and bleed and inflame the follicles and possibly not even remove all the hairs. it's not worth it to get it done if it's just going to rip your skin off and not even work.
>don't try it at home
again, wax is more meant for thinner hairs, trying to DIY will just result in a lot of pain, at that point it would be easier to just pluck the whole thing or buy an epilator.

Speaking of, is there any way to get feminine hips through working out? I mainly worry because of hips being so different on men compared to women. (see >>10454582)
Don't know what muscles I'd need to work to get the "feminine" shape, or if I should just give up and go for padding instead.

Hip width is yeah, but in theory hip fat can make them look wider

I guess so
If you slim down your waist and have some natural curves the waist to hip ratio can also help make them seem bigger than they are too

>> No.10494441

All I can recommend is to do as thorough a shave with your current razor as possible, and maybe try several layers of makeup to help offset the stubble.
If you wanna go for broke, buy a pair of tweezers at a drug store and go to town on it (you'll want to do that today or tomorrow, it's very likely you'll be bleeding this way).
Other than that, well, wow, you seem really, really enthusiastic. Almost makes me wanna see some pics after you're done. Good luck mate!

I started using a shavette cause I'm a cheap cunt and wholly recommend using an old style safety razor for the closest shave of your life. Shavette is fine, but much harder technique. Anything that uses razor blades will kick ass for getting you smooth

Hey so I started plucking using the tweezerman I have and I absolutely love the smooth but I know this is probably gonna take like 5 more hours. Considering just threading the rest but they won't do my chin for sure.

I wouldn't, personally. I once tweezes out a big patch of pubes, it hurt, the skin was irritated for a while afterwards, and it took a really long time. If you start tweezing, don't do it systematically, remove hairs evenly so if you decide to shave halfway through it will help you rather than be awful and patchy

It's all about relative proportions. Bigger hips make shoulders look smaller by comparison, but big hips with no waist or thin waist with no hips makes the one lacking look pretty stupid, so you have to manipulate both to have a good figure.
If your shoulders are stupid wide even for a male then you're fucked, as hips wide enough will get to the point of absurd on a realistic human frame, but assuming a not blob or stick figure to begin with, it shouldn't be too bad.

Not the guy asking, but I think he was implying that he was looking for a useful answer

He wanted answers, not miracles. You can only work with what you have when it comes to shoulders. There's no way to get around man shoulders, beyond if you have a shit ton of deltoid muscle that loosing that might help, but you can't get around what anatomy you have without dangerous invasive surgery that might not even be a thing.

>> No.10495891

Well, there's actually one thing you can do. Pick an armored character with big ass shoulder plates that will conceal your shoulders. They aren't that uncommon in fantasy games. It does, however, require you to have decent foam smithing skills.

You did get a real answer. Just because you didn't like it doesn't make it false.
Limiting yourself to only characters that have big shoulder pads may have not been an option given some anons just don't want to cosplay those kinds of characters. Taking into account body proportions like the other anon said is far more a thorough universal answer.

Update! My face is still clear amazingly enough. No problems at all except when I used glow in the dark paint on the face mask and got dry skin.. CeraVe Healing ointment works perfect for that.

Everyone is my house must really be questioning why I didn't grow any hair on my face for like more than a week now. Totally recommend for full week of cosplays.

Not sure if I'm doing this right, trying to send you to another thread just for a picture, so I'll test it real quick. But a couple anons have been tricked into thinking I'm on HRT with the way this corset worked to make my chest come out.

This is a recreation of the cosplay so I don't have all the tools I used to make it seamless (and I'm a bit thinner than before) but I got you the weird frontal angle, you can see the shapewear a bit because of aforementioned reasons.

I think if I got corset measured in person this would work even better than the other pic honestly.

I've been trying to get into crossplay (MtF) a bit more seriously recently, and there's a few characters in particular that have stood out to me, with a common element between them being that most of their legs are visible/uncovered. I've been messing around with shaving my legs as a result, but I always seem to get problems with ingrown hairs. Are there any tips or tricks for dealing with leg hair efficiently, or am I just gonna have to suck it up and exfoliate?

>> No.10500095

You are doing good man, sorry if I sounded rude, I meant to say spandex suits don't look good on anyone that isn't in top shape and thus aren't the best choice.

Depending on your genetics you are pretty doomed with the ingrown hairs. You can reduce them with the usual tips (shave in the direction of the hair, exfoliate, etc.) but not get rid of them completely. The only true solution is laser removal, but it's slow, expensive and permanent.
