Hello! I am cosplaying as Haruka Nanase for an upcoming con. I was planning on going shirtless but I am a female. I was wondering if anyone knows how to make my 34A boobs look smaller or flatter. Thanks!

This is probably not very helpful, but when I went shirtless for a cosplay, I straight up made a full prosthetic chest out of foam, lycra spandex, and liquid latex.

Are you using an actual fake chest (the kind that Charlemagne just mentioned), or wearing a chest t-shirt? If you're going to fake chest route, there shouldn't be any problem with your boobs interfering. However, if you're going the t-shirt route, just wear a sports bra or a binder if needed.

[url][/url] I went and dug up a photo. It was rough, being my first prosthetic, but it got the job done, and I have a very LARGE bust. :)

I've been trying to figure this out myself (for Vaan from FFXII and Atlantica!Sora), and the best looking thing I've found is this:


The only problem is I can't find a website that's actually selling them

Not sure what you're thinking of doing, and I'm not sure if this will help, but I know a girl cosplayer has done a cosplay of Haruka shirtless, but with his club jacket opened like this: [url]!_ES_CHARACTER_SONG_-_HARUKA_NANASE.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20140813134401[/url], but the breasts were still covered up by the jacket. She did some kind of binding to get them out if the way I think. Her handle is MangoSirene if you wanna look her up, I think she explained it on her tumblr.

^ Yep, Nina's method is open chest binding!

You could also look into a tube top style binder in tan and wear that. If you wanted to go the extra mile, you could airbrush that to look like pectorals!
