Japanese Cosplayer Shares Secret for Perfect Crossplaying

Crossplay is a sub-segment of cosplay that has been growing in popularity. Essentially, it refers to a cosplayer dressing as a character of their opposite sex.

Perfecting the style can be a little tricky without heavy use of makeup and photoshop, but cosplayer @18_17_Ruccika is more the up to the challenge!

While nailing the costume and expression of the character is vital, but @18_17_Ruccika claims that none of that matters if your posture is wrong.

@18_17_Ruccika says that as a woman, her natural posture results in her bottom out and chest raised. In order to successful crossplay as a male character, you would need to mimic the average male posture. This means stooping your back, dropping your shoulders, and pulling your pelvis.

It’s one of useful, subtle tips that can take your crossplay to the next level!
