I will be cosplaying the goddess/daedric prince [URL="http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lxcl2jVmqb1r9yvn0o1_500.jpg"]Nocturnal[/URL] from the game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. As you can see, there is NO WAY I can wear any kind of bra that I know of. Even the Nubra would show. I'm at a loss here. The [URL="https://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/426828_201067446689331_1555344615_n.jpg"]last time[/URL] I did something even remotely like this, a bra was part of the outfit, so with the magic of fashion tape, I had boobs.

Help! I really want this to be as accurate as possible, but I don't want my ladies to look sad :(

Aw coolness a Nocturnal cosplay ! I wouldn't have the courage to wear such a costume but I hope you'll make it look great and hopefully tasteful too.

Anyway, I was able to find, with a very quick mobile search, stuff like these [url]www.asos.com/Fashion-Forms/Fashion-Forms-Ultimate-Peel-N-Stick-Push-Up-Cups/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=1899716&cid=6046&Rf900=1508&sh=0&pge=0&pgesize=20&sort=-1&clr=Nude[/url]

Dunno anything about that particular shop or those as solutions; how or if they work (it said they can be worn with or without bra), but maybe that's a starting point? I googled with keyword invisible bra and only looked through this one site.

#3 Rexluna on 6 years ago

Geez, I didn't even think to google that...I thought I would just get the ones the still connect in the front or back. Haha, thank you! I'll have to do some research or try them out.

I don't get how the first ones can be push-up if there isn't anything help keep them supported...

#4 cybernova on 6 years ago

You're welcome!

Yeah, I'm a bit skeptical about their push-up qualities as well, but I guess they might provide some support still as opposed to going all bra-less. Anyway, good luck researching/experimenting C:

The Reveal Bra that cybernova linked is actually really great. You can get a lot of lift out of a "bra" like that as long as you stick it to yourself right! You apply the bottom of the adhesive to the... underside... first, then lift/position them to get the shape you want before you apply the rest of the adhesive. It can put a little stress on your skin if you're trying to pull them up a lot but it looks great!

#6 Rexluna on 6 years ago

Oooh, thank you! Good to know one of them works!

#7 Penlowe on 6 years ago

and having a good stiff drink before removing them helps too. It's a good strong adhesive....

#8 Rexluna on 6 years ago

Yikes....I didn't think of that...

Also make sure to bring your boyfriend dressed as the most intimidating dragonborn he can pull off, to keep any pervy guys from trying to create wardrobe malfunctions.

#10 Rexluna on 6 years ago

Lol, if only! Maybe I'll force him to make armor for himself so I won't have to do it xD

But you raise a great point. At least with Morrigan I could guard my boobs myself. I don't think I can guard MY WHOLE BODY lol

But my boyfriend is very tall and skinny...intimidating he is not xD

[QUOTE=Rexluna;4549587]Yikes....I didn't think of that...[/QUOTE]

The adhesive doesn't go anywhere near your nipples, but the skin on the underside of a boob is about as thin as it gets almost anywhere on your body. I've heard you can soak adhesive bandages in mineral oil to loose it up, thus preventing pain upon removal of the bandage, but I've never tried it, and it sounds really messy.

You could always purchase individual cups and sew them into the front of the dress. I also have the little adhesive covers, but I just thought I would bring up this other option :)

We sell the Reveal bra by bra and I can say with some certainty that they are awesome and will do exactly what you need them to. We get a lot of girls going to the Playboy Mansion who choose to use these to help lift in impossibly drapey lingerie.

Oil will get off most adhesives. If you're worried about getting out of it, there's special remover oil designed for removing special-effects prosthetics.
