Yo ! Cause it's kinda empty here, I thought about making a small discussion... Don't take the subject personally xD It's just theoretically speaking : 3
Lately I found out plenty of gender- bender mangas and I'm already obsessed with 'em ... So here is my question - Would you like to cosplay more as a male character form your fav manga/ anime or female ? ( it's not surprising that guy wears girlish clothes[for cosplays], so please don't offend ... )
As for me it doesn't really matter. It's all about looking similar to character xD
I like to wear more clothing than skin so I have to vote male. Too many scantily clad female characters out there. I think it's great that both guys and girls cross-play. I had a blast at a Mr. and Miss Trap contest at a convention. Some of them made you go "No way! That's a guy/girl!?" Double take city! If it is an awesome cosplay I don't care about gender. I just care that it is an awesome cosplay and whether or not I can get a picture.
Awesome pictures by the way yaoimaniacxd.
hah exactly !
How come you hit the point <3
thx a lot
btw - I feel like coplaying as a guy, but can't choose the proper chara .. < maybe Kuro's butler >
I prefer to cosplay as a guy mainly for the fact that they tend to wear more clothing than the women in the shows. That and they guys almost always are the cooler ones in anime.
. . . I can only cosplay as guys. Because there is no way i can pull off and female anime or manga Character and i just prefer cosplaying as guys it suits my body type better. That and i hate skirts with a burning passion there are very few females that i have found that i want to cosplay as. One being Masuda from Soul Eater but i cant pull off blond hair.
Also i think all my friends would freak out if i ever dressed as a female character since i almost never dress like a girl in RL
Guys seem easier to cosplay for me, especially since a lot of the male characters I like tend to wear Casual styled clothing, and I can be nice on my wallet and thrift around for their outfits. Females characters on the other hand, tend to have more detailed clothing (At least the ones I actually LIKE) and it limits the amount of things I can buy for cheap.
Guys are more fun(save the trouble of going through binding). I just cosplay(crossplay) as my favorite characters and since I love video games and shonen anime/manga a lot, I naturally have more male favorite characters.
The male characters strictly now. I used to be able to pull off cute girl characters, but that doesn't seem to be the case anymore. Also, long hair/wigs makes me look more like a drag queen than not; make-up (even done by several professionals) makes me look like a girl-wannabe. Although there is one female character I will forever have my eyes on (Haydee from Gankutsuo). I stay with the guys. And short boyish guys while I'm at it. I wish, but I can't cosplay tall muscular guys (yet? :3 ).
I don't mind Cosplaying as either male, or female characters. Though I have to say the male, far out weights the female for me. I have to agree with [ Little White Dragon]. Too many female characters, not wearing enough. It's like all of a sudden Artists know, their stuff is being turned into Cosplay, and if they are perverts, LOL Like myself, they want women wearing basically nothing. I think Anime Male's, have cooler outfits, because there is more thought put into them now a days, unlike the female outfits. It's sort of depressing. I miss the 80's, and 90's. LOL
<- I love Cosplaying as Men.
I don't mind either, but I can safely say most cosplays I have done, whether they be mine or borrowing a friends are male characters, since I tend to cosplay my favorite character and 3/4 times that character is very much male, lol.
I've cosplayed Naruto, Sasuke (borrowed from a friend), Sora, Roxas (borrowed from a friend), Amu and I have an Itachi and Yuki Cross cosplay myself!
