    So, given that I have had little sleep and it's early over here, I have decided that (space-permitting) I will do drag within the next few years.

    The look I intend to pull off is as follows:

    You've got the legs for it, but are you sure you want to wear puffed sleeves?

    It's my kind of contemporary women's outfit.

    If I ever wear a regular dress again, it will be a homemade one (I wore a black dress for a tenth grade play where I played a wicked witch). I just don't have the body to pull off a dress made for signficant breasts.

    As for the puffed sleeves, I am certain that they will be back in style once I am done making this kind of outfit (heck, they may have come back in style, gone out of style, and then come back in style again by the time I am done with it ;-) ).

    I've never done drag, nor do I intend to in the future, but doing Samus's 'dress' is an awesome possibility that gives me pause.

    Go for it Nick!

    (I think your going to have to put the sewing machine away and move into the model shop!)

    cool costume guy...
    I once dressed up in chick clothes but it was at a fashion party. So hopefuly it does'nt count. No offence to those guys who like to dress up in drag.icon_wink.gif But c'mon, I think guys who dress like guys are allot hotter. icon_lol.gif

    The question is NickoftheNorth: Where will the rest of your "anatomy" be stored?

    where are you going to do this 'drag' and what for? do you just have a burning desire to dress like a fembot?

    If the strategic placement of anatonomical accesories could be moved to the right arm... could I maybe get a date with it..? icon_twisted.gif it seems mind blowing.

    It's largely on a whim due to lacking sleep that I want to eventually do this. I also like the costume.

    And, I want to upturn part of the drag expectation of the heavily made-up queen with the armored warrior (in this case, space bounty hunter). Drags rests on subverting the masc. / fem. dichotomy (a social structure); I would to subvert the subversion while simultaneously aiming to go against the gender dichotomy.

    Yet, I am also aware of the possibility of it working as "safe" drag, enabling a disguise that allows one to be "female" without actually appearing "female." I have no fears of wearing a dress if someone will provide me with one; I do not care for the frills of women's underwear though...give me boxers!

    As to my anatomy, I am sure that the crotch area of the Chozo suit will allow my anatomy to fit quite snugly. As a human, I lack the anatomical flexibility of moving my genitals onto my arms or any other part of my body.

    That reminds me, I have to finish the latest Metroid Prime game.

    As for your idea, depending on where you'll wear the outfit, put a fleshlight at the end of the canon. LOL

    Oh - god, I thought you actualy meant you were going to change yourself to a cyborg with interchangeable parts... and all of that just for the sake of a costume party. That is what I call real commitment. LOL

    That looks like a cool outfit. I would do drag if I had that outfit myself. Good luck with that and post up the pics if you do go through with it.

    I've dressed up in drag a few times for Halloween. Unfortunately, my body type has dictated the kind of woman that I've portrayed. Once I went as Wonder Woman; not the soft, squishy Wonder Woman played by Lynda Carter, but the Amazonian type of Wonder Woman who would appeal more to the fans of American Gladiators than to Major Steve Trevor. Another time I was Billie Jean King and my friend was Martina Navratilova. I also went as a Berlin Wall-era, East German shotput star. I wore a tank top that read "Deutschland", a gold medal, cheesy velour short shorts and a blonde Heidi wig. I stuck a couple of band-aids on my arm, too, so it looked like I had been injecting steroids.

    I would suggest some sort of 'Dildo Drill' in lieu of an actual Power Beam. And you might want to consider something in a Varia brassiere.

    so will this be a costume or will you make it more feminine, like a Cyberwoman from Doctor Who?

    Samus is acceptable. Make sure to post pics!
