gamerbrash posted a topic in General DiscussionOnce upon a time, before I was a Christian, I crossdressed in private for the sake of homosexual eroticism. Four years later, I don't anymore, but I've been taking an interest in it again for the sake of cosplay, or as I've discovered it's called, "crossplay." (I've been having some difficulty reconciling this desire with my faith lately, though.) I no longer have any attraction to the same sex or any gender identity issues, but I digress. This is merely history leading up to current interests. In any case, this has me curious to see if any of my fellow bronies have pulled off convincing crossplays as their favorite ponies, or if you're a general cosplayer, talk about that, too! If I'm being honest, I've always found female characters more interesting as fictional people. Cosplay has always interested me, but the lack of interesting male characters is a problem for me. At most the only male cosplays I've wanted to do are The Doctor (Doctor Who, but I'm sure you knew that) and Kanaan. (Star Wars: Rebels) What has me interested in crossplay is that my girlfriend of two months has a high school friend who is also a heterosexual who went to Youmacon in downstate Michigan dressed as (a very convincing) Fluttershy. I've since befriended him and we talk about crossplay. I've got a Princess Luna crossplay in the works, and lately its occupying my thoughts when I'm idle. Debating whether to order the basic pieces soon. Have a local friend and cosplay designer that has agreed to help me and keep my supplies at her house since my parents would likely object. (I'm 20 and living at home still) That's really my only reservation on the horizontal plane, from human to human interaction. Going behind their backs and hiding, and even then I'm not sure if dressing as a woman with no sexual perversion or gender confusion is a sin or not. Anywho, I've got an amazon list of potential dresses, accessories, etc. that I'm probably going to order and ship to my friend's house here soon. I'd like to get the costume made, ready, and stored for the day that I'm able to use it. If anyone is curious about what I've picked, I'll make a separate post with the amazon links. Your turn!
My Vinyl Scratch cosplay from October MCM Expo in London. I made the entire thing myself including the bass cannon. The cannon is made from cardboard, pepsi bottles, Pringles bottles, old broken electronics and light-up LED wire/panels. dA link: http://phillarkm.deviantart.com/art/Vinyl-Scratch-and-Wubsley-the-Bass-Cannon-410223218
