How do I convince a crossplayer to wear makeup and a wig? A guy I know is really into crossplay but refuses to wear makeup and a wig so all of his “cosplays” just look like a random man stuffed into a dress. No, he’s not going for the man in a dress gag, he’s going for actual crossplay but refuses to put in any actual effort into looking decent, let alone passing.

>> No.10711277

It certainly doesn't hurt to try understand why he picked up crossplaying in the first place, if you don't know already. Not doing it "as a gag" makes this seem pretty weird without added context. From someone who started off with fairly gender-neutral outfits, I knew I'd have to step up the game if I were to keep it up. We're not to the level of prosthetic boobs or voice alteration, but the fact remains. Maybe that'll give you a leg up on convincing him, maybe not. What it definitely SHOULD do is explain why. And even then, getting someone who will wear a dress into a wig sounds easy enough.

He picked up crossplaying because he likes female character designs more but he also wants to look like the characters. Every time I bring up that wearing a wig and makeup will help him look more like the characters, he says that a wig and makeup is too much work. I've even offered to style his wigs and do his makeup for him but he refuses. It's confusing.

Anons, my feeling are all over the place. A bit angry, confused, but mostly just sad. All I wanted to do was buy some cute shoes and a nice kimono and they gave me the middle finger instead. Has anyone else, who's buying from Chinese sources, had a similar experience in more recent times? Are the shop owners shitting their pants, because of Winnie Pooh's crackdown on feminine men?

>> No.10712638

Checked trips. This is still not really adding up desu. It can't be a matter of "breaking out of the shell", at least not a normal one. Do you crossplay or know anyone who does? Best thing I can cook up here is have him hang around your and/or those people and see what happens in regards to the general reactions. They should be close to, if not, universally positive, and I'm including public cosplay. Or hell, even just scoping for high effort crossplayers. Any GOOD convention worth it salt will have plenty, and most likely post here, on top of that.

>> No.10712702

That is indeed weird, but that's how just some shops seem to operate. It wouldn't be a problem to order through the female option if they really need to know. The actual issue is them removing the custom size option since I'm a bit wary of squeezing myself into a Chinese XL which is around 100cm bust and 80cm waist for them.

>> No.10712712

That has fuckall to do with you being male. You are reading too much into it. The shop probably has an unrelated reason for stopping custom sizing and the SS just wants you to get the proper size. Chinese stores often just use outside suppliers that change and can be very inconsistent. If they changed their manufacturer thet may have had to stop offering certain services like customization.

>> No.10712789

Sorry if this is a frequently asked question, but I've been eyeing a cosplay to buy and am having some sizing issues. My frame fits the S size pretty well except for my shoulders, which matches L size.

Don't think they said that because I was male either. It was just them being confused, because I just copy pasted the old information into the new order including my gender, which they explicitly asked for since the manufacturer had options for both, although the new listing only mentions female sizes in particular. So just some sort of miscommunication I suppose.

>The shop probably has an unrelated reason for stopping custom sizing
>If they changed their manufacturer thet may have had to stop offering certain services like customization
Yeah, this seems reasonable given most shops are very small with low turnover. The store in question apparently also has an AliExpress storefront and some of the cosplay listings there still offer custom sizing, but the prices are all twice as high...

I remember when I first started out, I was terrified of wearing makeup because I thought I wouldn't be able to remove it properly and that it would out me.

It might be something like that, like a fear or complex.

>How to straighten a synthetic wig?
I just use a flat iron and straighten the the hair, which I divide in different sections. Worked perfectly fine on a TaoBao wig that was heavily tangled with a bunch of knots in it. Of course if your wig has tangles, try to remove them manually, cut out the worst knots and then carefully straighten it. Tools like a tripod with a wigstand, pins and clamps to section the hair properly are mandatory. And maybe a chair and some movie to watch too since it's quite tedious.

>> No.10717240

Stupid question, but how did you get over the insecurity?

>> No.10717251

For crossdressing in public? It really just boils down to how confident you are in yourself at that moment, which helps in distracting you from the eyes that may or may not stare at you. If you're looking for a more supportive environment, have friends around you that will stick with you and be a buffer for social situations. Personally, constantly trying to improve the look helps in building confidence as you'll see people be more confused or outright fooled by your appearance, which may help in assuaging any worries and a bit of ego stroking. It's a long process you have to learn and condition yourself into, so good luck anon.

Not only is it fun, not only does it get you mad attention-- it builds up confidence at lightning speed. Public cosplay has never resulted in an insult or threat. Barely even dirty looks, which mostly come from little kids anyway. It's all compliments if they say anything. It's quite a feeling when you realize that being a fairly tall guy in a crop top and miniskirt, sometimes in very cold weather, keeps the bad ones at bay and the good ones telling you how awesome you are. ...Oh yeah and free drinks thrown at you are nice too, and anime girls are simply more memeable character across the board.

Well hopefully it will be in better condition by then because the pants split 100% down the middle already. The rest of the outfit is very breathable and easy to put on...and I say that in spite of zipping my neck skin with it the other day.

Good use of padding and layers should be enough to achieve this - the woman in your pic isn’t that fat so padding your waist, hips and wearing an extremely padded bra (all easy enough things to find e.g. from shapewear brands should be easy to do.

Here's a breakdown of the cost for the bare essential face stuff for crossdressing makeup using exclusively Nyx products. I chose the cheapest not-on-sale products available on the Canadian website
$14 primer
$16 color corrector
$18 foundation
$16 concealer
$14 powder
$12 setting spray
$12 sponge applicator

That brings you to $102 before tax. I guess you can get away with not using color corrector if you're wearing a mask though.

Asian products are shit for crossdressing makeup anyways. They don't have anywhere near enough coverage.

>> No.10727517

So the guy was spot on.
Going for minimum, a lot of that stuff is unnecessary, especially if you have tools already. Powder stuff also can last two years or more, it's not like liquid stuff that separates, it's just highly recommended to change due to bacteria.
I think minimum makeup I could get too work
Contouring kit-25
Eye shadow-10
Eye liner-10
As for tools, use your hands. I can get by with the applicators provided, and one good large brush to smooth things out at the end. Most the numbers are estimated, but ten bucks is very average, and if you're not rushed easily accomplished with sales. At most fifteen bucks should cover each of the items.
However if you do not know the exact colour needed, more will be needed likely, as getting colour palettes over single colours is recommended

>> No.10727525

Before I buy a full kigu costume I want to get something like pic related to lounge around the house in. I wear hoodies to keep warm and the thought of a bear suit really appeals to me. It looks warm and comfy and the perfect thing to wear while I'm programming.

Every time I look for a bear suit like this I can't find any for adults. The few I've found looked like they were really low quality. It doesn't have to be a bear suit a cat or bunny suit would be fine. I just want one that has feet attached and is a proper one-piece.

I'm not fat or anything. I can probably fit into a women's medium. I'm just retarded when it comes to this stuff. Is it possible to take your own measurements without screwing it up? How do you convert male sizes to female/nip sizes?

Since a bunch of you fags are lurking I wanted to ask. How do you find other people IRL that are into this stuff? I see videos of people dressed in kigu having fun together all of the time. Do you just meet at cons or what?

I was a poorfag for most of my life so I never got into the con scene. I'd have to travel a long ways to even attend something like that. It looks like I missed the boat on the good times with all the woke-rules that seem to be part of the community now. I know of absolutely no one IRL that would find this acceptable. If I got caught ordering this stuff my social life would be ruined. Even my friends IRL that are huge anime fans find this type of thing weird. They'd all call me a faggot. I have no desire to have buttsex. I just want to be cute in the privacy of my own home.

Are any of you guys like me? It looks like most guys into crossplay are twinks (no offense). I'm a man's man IRL. I have the untamed beard and most of my hobbies are stereotypical man shit. I wear work boots everyday and my clothing is all tattered from hard work everyday. I wear Duluth trading company work pants. I wear steel toed boots. I wear a disgusting ball cap with sweat lines all over it. My voice is deep af and my hands are covered in callouses.

I don't even know why I want to dress up like this. I have no desire to cross dress otherwise. I don't care about feminine shit. I don't want to be a woman. But the thought of being a cute anime girl nags at me. I've tried to repress it and it just keeps coming back stronger and stronger.

Anyone else in the same boat as me? I don't even think I could pull off crossplay without a kigu mask even with professional make-up. I could never do a proper female voice.

Here is why I want to combine girl voice with Kigu.

My thinking is that the kigu masks will eventually develop into animated. There will be a see through LCD screen. There will be a camera inside the mask to track your facial expressions. It will map to the LCD screen in real time ala vtuber software. This would allow for more realism in the animu girl LARP community.

Right now kigs do not speak while in costume because their masks are static. With a dynamic mask you naturally want to add sound. This will require a real time voice changer that sounds exactly like the character you're playing. In time if it gets good enough you could do shit like LARP as Miku while singing. Maybe you don't need real time voice for that application. But for organic conversation pre-recorded material simply won't do.

My desire is to actually play the character 100%. That includes the high pitched overly cute voice and basically acting like an excited school girl. I think the technology for this is already good enough. No one has put it all together yet.

My long term goal is to sell this shit for $1k-$3k+ per mask. People would buy them. You would only need one. The face is dynamic all you have to do is swap the wig between characters at that point. When I say I want to BECOME an anime girl I mean it. I just don't want to LARP as one. I want to actually be one.

I also want a costume in case I need to attend some event while remaining 100% anonymous. For that application I need real time voice changing. It needs to be good enough to give a lecture while in costume. If this was possible I would have attended multiple events instead of staying at home to remain anon. I am a leader of some anon projects that people host cons for. I've been invited to speak multiple times. I keep having to refuse because there is no good way to remain anonymous while doing it.

>> No.10729291

>LCD kigu mask
Here is what I'm talking about. The technology is already being used by Disney for their theme park rides. Frozen ride makes good use of it:


That is a 100% animated face on those puppets. We just need to take that and combine it with existing vtuber software. Instant animu girl face for your costume. Even if I was a cute girl I'd be interested in this. I think this will become fashion in the future. People will want to be whatever they're using for an avatar IRL.

>I've been invited to speak multiple times. I keep having to refuse because there is no good way to remain anonymous while doing it.
I should explain instead of just saying this. Imagine Steve Jobs giving a presentation but it's an anime girl instead of a faggot in jeans. That's basically the application I want this for.

I know it sounds retarded but I have good reasons for this. The software I build/manage could get me thrown in prison over copyright/licensing agreements we ignore. We can not abide by the retarded laws. Our software simply would not work. As such we all remain anon for the most part. At least everyone like me dealing with the infrastructure and guiding development. They've been trying to locate me and sue my ass for years.

I would really love to give a lecture related to some of my work. But since I can't without revealing my real name this is currently not possible. The moment I poke my head up they'll v& me. However, if I was to show up unannounced to give a surprise lecture, with my entire body/face covered, and even my height altered, I would stand a good chance of getting away with it before they sent in the goon squad to arrest me.

I have a project I'm working on right now like this. If it becomes popular it will solve a lot of problems. But developing it is going to require that I manage a large team anonymously. I would like to have a pseudonym or character I could play whenever it was required to communicate with voice/video. I would most likely pick the mascot of the project or something.

This is what initially drew me towards Kigu. It's close enough to an actual human that it isn't off putting like furfag shit. Yet it's abstract enough that it would be simple to design and build.

I know it sounds retarded. But that's where I'm at. I really want to do this before I die. Give a serious lecture to a large audience of normalfags while dressed up as an animu girl.

A couple thoughts.

I have no doubt someone is working on exactly what you're talking about. It's all possible with today's technology. Kig / Animegao masks have come a long way in the last few years and there's no reason to expect they won't keep getting more capable and impressive. That said, don't expect it any time soon. Those are a lot of disparate technologies that need to come together.

You don't need this technology to speak anonymously at a conference. If you really wanted to go, you could You could dress as Batman, or a stormtrooper, or Marshmello- anything that covers your face and allows you to disguise your body shape..

Foam is tedious to cut. It can help to rough the shape out with an electric knife (the kind you use to cut turkey) but whenever I need new pads I just sit down in front of the TV and go at it with scissors for the 3-4 hours it will take.

As far as looking like part of your leg, there might be one of several things going on.

The right foam to use is medium density white foam- not high density green foam.

Make sure the edge of the foam tapers off slowly as you get to the edge of the pad. A 1" thick pad should have a 3-4" taper, minimum, and a 5-6" taper for the bottom part that points down you leg. See this ancient pic of my old pads.

You also need to have enough compression to crush the edge of the foam. I usually start with a pair of panty hose that are one size too big and arrange the pads under them until I'm happy. Then I put on a well fitting to slightly too small (but not way too small) pair of pantyhose that will compress the pads and crush the edge of the foam down to nothing. Then I wear tights over the top. (protip- cut the crotch out of the pantyhose, then you only need to remove the tights to pee.)

Hope this helps!

Don't just measure yourself, measure clothes that have a similar cut, length or whatever to what you want to buy as well.

I've usually been able to get away with a woman's or unspecified gender size large when ordering from Taobao.

The.. welts? On your legs aren't doing you many favours, neither is your choice of shoes or socks. Try nude pantyhose to help offset the blemishes. Your shoulders are also too thick but they seem to have a nice curve to them so I think it's fine. Maybe try longer hair like the other anon said or use a dress that covers them without fitting tightly. Rest looks good.

>>10718567 this as well as liking designer women's fashion that I can't wear in real life (CDG etc). On top of that I do not like being male but I'm not mentally unstable or young enough to pump myself full of drugs to change that. I'm also extremely self conscious about certain aspects of my body that other people don't seem to have e.g my hands are usually quite rosy compared to other people's.

That's called applique and it's done all the time. It's fine to do, just make sure the quality of both the hoodie and whatever you're printing onto are both good, otherwise you'll end up with one fading at a different rate than the other.

Looks okay/average for a first go. I agree with longer hair to conceal shoulders/upper back. Also, think about a more intricate choker necklace (try chandelier necklaces with a drop on the front) as a single choker creates a horizontal line and can make your neck look wider rather than concealing an Adam's apple. The socks look terrible - like generic sports socks - and you would be much better served with dance tights or nude pantyhose , or longer socks.

Bad reaction: red bumps a day or more after waxing

How can I tell if I will have a bad reaction to waxing? (I did with nair strips but that's not the real thing). I have a con in over a month, and am hoping to get my hairy ass legs professionally done before then. (Only once cuz I'm not made of money).

>> No.10744492

You should have done a practice run several months in advance to see how your body reacts, and how long it would take to recover. "Recovery" times depend a lot on the person. For me, it takes usually takes 1-2 days for the redness to fully go away, but I'm not very hairy and I've been waxing for years now.

Soaking in cold water and taking anti-inflammatories can help to reduce swelling a bit but it's mostly a waiting game.

Haven't even attempted makeup myself desu. It kinda plays well into the contrast I've seen basically every time with crossplayers. Some will take it VERY seriously, most do zero effort on purpose as a meme (quite a few as Touhou). I am not really either, despite exclusively crossplaying. Trying to lean more to the serious, but not quite committed yet, and certainly not talented enough. Right now, it's mainly cause it 1) makes me feel cute 2) more fun than regular cosplay 3) a great way to fish for compliments from girls and guys alike.

Ok same guy who posted this.
I have it and i can go with two styles, either just use it like a dress and have a belt on my waist to accent it, or do something like pic rel
Idk if i'm tucking it right, tho, cause it still looks kinda wrong and too big. Though that might be cause i'm not wearing hip pads and my ass looks very small compared to it, would like some good ideas on how to tuck it. Rn i just tuck the very bottom bit into my belt.

I would also like to know if it's better to wear high heels with this style or Moon Boots. Yes i own moon boots and wear them every winter. I don't give a shit.
Both make me look more feminine in costume, heels make me more "sexy" feminine while moon boots make me more "cute" feminine. Idk which to go with.

Also i would like to know how big should my tits be? Asked my mom and she said it should be as big as your hand fully stretched. That's about 20cm.

A good rule of thumb is to make your bust measurement roughly the same as your hip measurement- within about 5cm either way. That said you should go with what looks good- if you have broader shoulders you'll want larger breasts (and you should give yourself correspondingly wider hips as well.)

My hip pads are pretty wide, both are a little over 2cm.
