Ok, we are getting a super prevalence of these can I pass threads, and I realize this one could potentially add to the problem if this isn't executed correctly. But I'd like this to end up being a central "Can I pass/Should I crossplay/Do I REALLY look like a girl/guy?" etc. threads. This can even extend to the "Who should I crossplay" type threads I also see growing in popularity. There is no need to have 5000 of these types of threads floating about, and I think there are people who will agree.

Of course, if this idea doesn't gain ground, this thread is pointless and should be deleted.

I am guilty of making one of those threads, didn't know if there was something around for this purpose but now there is..hopefully this works.

This thread seems useful ^^. TLSHIN your links arent working... or maybe it's just me >.< .
I too was wondering the same thing. Before I put too much effort into trying, should I even worry about being passable?

Suggestions, comments? Or perhaps should I just quit trying so much XD. Thanks!

There wasn't. You weren't out of line, it just seems to make more sense to have a central thread. Also, your links indeed aren't working, so...yeah

Is this aided or natural? If it's natural, I think with a wig and a bit of make up you'll do alright. If you are actually doing a little bit of work, well, I'd say a wig is a must anyway (the way hair frames a face can do dramatic things to appearance), and you might want to use more eyeliner, foundation, and possibly mascara if you aren't, and I don't think I saw lipstick, so that would probably help, as well as lip gloss.

If you are a natural female, then you pass very well as a guy and I hope that's not insulting, lol.

My bad, I'll post some working links..

#6 MilesEdgeworth on 9 years ago

I don't think I pass at all.

O.O That is a very sexy photo. Your face is little blurry but you definitely have the body for female crossplay. I wish I was skinny like you

[b]Spinni:[/b] Use some makeup (bronzer) to define your jawline more and give yourself a little more of an eyebrow, that should help a lot. You already look pretty good, but makeup does wonders. (:

Working links, would I be able to pass?

#11 zomgmissy on 9 years ago

[b]TLSHIN:[/b] With makeup I believe you could. Try some foundation, eyeliner, and mascara and see how that looks for your base makeup. Maybe if you posted a picture of that you could get some ideas for where to go from there.

Holy crap, are you kidding? You look AMAZING in that photo. Better than I would in the same clothes, and I'm female!

You most definitely CAN pass.

D: You are gifted. Really, you have feminine features, and yet you can totally pull off the 'softer' bishounen. FFF, insert jealous rage here.

... you're kidding right? I'm kind of speechless over here D:

As for me, I'm pretty sure I don't 'pass' in technical terms. I guess the photos I have don't exactly help in that regard, as the guy I crossplayed is very... effeminate. BUT! Let's see what I have.

o01101011, you remind me of Ron from Harry Potter...

Gloom, you can pass. Just work on binding better, but other than that, it works!

I've been told that I pass very well, but I'm not so sure.
I guess I do, since I've been mistaken sooooo many times *sigh*.
