I mean, I like fem costumes, don't get me wrong, but I don't know if a girl being dressed as a boy necessarily counts. At the same time, however, I'm not binding my breasts or changing my regular makeup, so it isn't exactly crossplay.... it's very confusing. Sometimes I think we use too many labels.
This goes doubly for my "femshep" costume. I'm obviously a girl, and I'm obviously Commander Shepard, so is the word "fem" really necessary? I mean, I always call male Shepard "boyshep," because I feel like if we're distinguishing when Shepard's a girl, we should also distinguish when she's a boy, but it's not like everyone does that...I don't know, just some feminist ramblings, haha. Sorry to butt in.
What do you guys think? If, for instance, a girl is in a completely accurate iron man suit, not specially made to fit a girl, but she's wearing eyeliner and has her hair down, is it fem?
