Appearances are not always what they seem.
Truer words have never been spoken, especially when it comes to the world of “crossplay”.
Twitter user 1293maron has been garnering a ton of attention for his transformation into a convincing crossplay costume.
You see, this is what he actually looks like once he’s showered and removed his entire costume.
A far cry from the cute anime girls he so convincingly portrays.
Crossplay is a form of cosplay that involves the cosplayer dressing up as a character of the opposite gender.
Men who engage in crossplay and post pictures of themselves out of costume often get a lot of flak from fans who knew them as cute anime girls…
Not young men with 5-o’clock shadow!
Thankfully, however, 1293Maron’s followers have been largely supportive and have even asked for skincare tips because of his nearly flawless skin.
So, next time you see a cosplayer that looks like this:
Don’t be surprised if 1293Maron is actually underneath!
