This is a fairly random topic... but then again, we're cosplayers, randomness is what sustains us.

Anyway, I here a lot of people mention fem! versions of their favorite characters, and for some reason I really want to cosplay femme!Sebastian, so much to the point that I've started doodling sketches on all my schook notes. >>' I just feel like I wouldn't feel rbave enough to wear it, I suppose. A lot of my friends hate gender-bending cosplay, and I know they'd ridicule me for "ruining" the character.><

I'd also like to see some male versions of girl characters.... has anybody made a cosplay like that? What gender-bending would you like to see/do in the near future?

I'm kind of on the fence about whether or not to make my Disgaea Thief a crossplay or a genderbent version (then again the only difference either way will be if I make the jacket a cropped one or not).

To be honest I think it would be good to see a genderbent cosplay of pretty much everything (it's annoying when your favorite character's the opposite gender and you don't feel like/think you can pull off a crossplay so this is a good way around it). I'd love to see a genderbent BlazBlue group in particular though.

Fem!Snake from Metal Gear Solid =w= *SHOT*
Okay Okay I know have terrible ideas...

I was once recruited as a fem!Sebastian for a strange BB cosplay concept, but it was dropped just as quickly as it was adopted. :p

I'd love to cosplay a gender-swap Sheryl Nome. Not only is man!Sheryl hot, but it's also canon. :D Macross Frontier: Sayonara no Tsubasa, Kindan no Elixir concert sequence.

Fem!Auron would look so badass. >:D

EDIT: OK, I like that idea so much, I'm adding it to my costumes-to-do list.

Currently working on femme Auron, don't have any other ideas right now, though

[URL="http://www.gorbashkazdar.com/demotivators/Ponytails.PNG"]Fem!Kyon (AKA Kyonko)[/URL] (the picture's a good laugh if you've read/seen the series :P) would actually probably be something I'd be willing to do, considering I already have the costume and if I just grew out my hair it'd be perfect. :P

And then there's genderbent VOCALOIDs. My boyfriend was talking about being [URL="http://img223.imageshack.us/img223/1526/3pcdrz0.jpg"]genderbent Miku[/URL] with one of our friends as Rin...I kinda laughed at him. ^^;

#10 aiyua on 7 years ago

Oh, I just thought of another interesting one as well: Duster, from Mother 3.

Or Phoenix and Edgeworth from PW. xD

That would be so cool to see.:D The vocaloids have so many costume variations too, so it's about time some male versions of Miku came about. I'd cosplay a fem!Gakupo, but he's pretty girly already.xD

There are plenty of Mikuos out there. He's kind of the prime example of genderbent Vocaloids.

I'm going to start working on femversion of Canderous from Kotor for NYCC.. (someone knows who that is.. right?) I'm a little anxious about the design phase.. and walking around Manhattan with a giant fake repeating blaster rifle..

#14 Slender Man on 7 years ago

I was thinking of doing a Male version of Mio from K-ON Since I've got the same bass.

I posted this in a topic, but it didn't get any responses, so I'm hoping that if I post it here I will.

I want to go to NYAF as a female Alfred F. Jones (name = Alicia "Allie" F. Jones). So, I have most of the costume down, my biggest problem is that I want Allie's costume to be relatively close to Alfred's (only it will be much too hard to track down female army fatigues that would match). At the moment, I can't figure out what I want to wear underneath the jacket. Meaning, her actual outfit. Here are my ideas so far:
1) a tan/beige pencil skirt with a white collared shirt, and a tie
2) a mini-skirt (maybe tan or beige) of undetermined style, a white blouse and a silk scarf
3) denim jeans, a white collared shirt, and a tie
OR
3.5) denim jeans and a white tank top or blouse

What do you guys think? Additional ideas are MORE than welcome.
