So... umm. I kind of want to do this, but I'm sort of afraid.
Basically I love Marian to bits. Even though she's from a gag anime, she's one of the best trans characters and makes a mockery of the stereotypes people have about them.
However I'm not quite confident enough to show cleavage, etc., and I don't really have breasts. How could I tweak the outfit to make it work, but still be recognisable? I was thinking of getting a longer skirt, and wearing full length opaque tights instead of just stockings(don't like to risk showing my zetta ryouki).
I also need to wear some kind of shirt across so I can pad(my chest area is fairly hairy and breaks out in spots if I try to shave or wax; when I go on blockers that'll change hopefully).

I miss dressing cute and colorful during high school. I had a great freaking time and it was some of the best days of my life. I'm 21 now and have a pretty "normal" closet, though some pieces from my decora days are set away for maybe my child to enjoy some day. Though I do have a hankerin' to wear some of the cute stuff again. I'm not really into anime anymore, let alone cosplaying. Are there any inspirations of older folk who still dress cute and pull it off well without exactly screaming weeb? I want to still be able to go outside wearing the stuff and be able to be taken seriously? I'm looking for inspirational photos, if anything like this exists.
Thanks tons. Pic related, some of my bracelets in "the good ole days"

So I went to PMX this weekend for the first time in 2 years, and I'm beginning notice something.
There seems to be a lot less weeaboos at conventions these days. In fact, more and more cosplayers seem "normal" and quite attractive. Did also notice cosplayers getting younger and younger as well.
My question is: Since cosplaying seems to be getting more popular among normal non-weeaboo people, and people are starting to cosplay at a younger age (like, high school students), do you think cosplaying will ever be as accepted in American society as it is in Japanese society?
Like, do you think we'll start seeing American TV shows, movies, etc with anime style cosplays?
I realize that western cosplays like stuff at San Diego Comic Con is already widely accepted by Americans, but do you think anime style cosplays will ever be "not unsual" in a normal American context?
