So my genderbent Kylo Ren is mostly done. Because it’s basically the same costume as my crossplay Kylo Ren. The only differences are that I switch wigs, tighten the belt, and put on some lipgloss. And I now have a helmet. Which is actually kind of an interesting mindfuck to wear and I didn’t expect that; I’ve never felt less like me in a cosplay with the mask on because it’s so anonymous and inhuman looking so it feels like a muzzle. Although overall, it’s really interesting how much more comfortable I feel being fem!Kylo than being dude!Kylo, even though it’s the exact same clothing. Like I’m really glad I crossplayed it first because that was something I swore I couldn’t do and wouldn’t do, so I showed myself that I can if I want to. But ultimately I’m just more comfortable as a girl.
The helmet isn’t quite done yet, it still needs a lot of detailing and a visor. But I’ve been like lowkey shrieking over this cosplay for about a month and I wasn’t expecting that because it was supposed to be an easy cosplay but I’m incapable of making anything easy on myself, so I’m relieved that the end is in sight.
Everything was hand made by me. You can find more details of the build in my Kylo Ren tags.
