RT Fashion: Gender Reverse Cosplay

On today’s Replicate This! I will be discussing gender reverse cosplay. There are two different ways one could go about with gender reverse cosplay.

The first type of gender reverse cosplay I will be covering is called “Rule 63”. Basically, Rule 63 of the internet is that if there is a male character there is also a female version, and if there is a female character there is also a male version. In other words a female chooses a male character and puts her own spin on it to turn it into a feminine version of the character and vice versa.

Here are some fabulous examples:

The other realm of gender reverse cosplay is called crossplay. In crossplay, one dresses as a character who is of the opposite sex without changing the character’s gender. Here are some great examples:

There are also many males who do crossplay, especially at anime conventions. Here are some images from the tumblr page Men of Crossplay

(I’m thinking of consulting these guys for some beauty tips ‘cause…..DAMN!)

So as you can see, cosplay is not limited by gender in any way. Make it fun, make it nerdy, make it you. Until next time, stay nerdy my friends!

    Love the pictures, especially of people I know; Elsbeth (by the by, the lovely Megan Gotch a.k.a. The Nerdy Girlie is also in that pic!) and Shannon Fox.
