Appearance hacks for men

I’m in a band as a frontman and I’m looking for every appearance hack available to me. The obvious ones are shoe lifts for height, compression shirts for physique, and makeup for complexion.

This is not for daily wear, only for on stage, so I don’t care how fake and gay it is. Give me everything you’ve got.

      It’s not a question of necessity or insecurity – I’m not short or fat. But as a performer I think there’s a certain requirement to look as good as possible for the sake of the performance and the aesthetics of the band.

        So therefore one needs not what you seek.

        Let me guess, a rock band?

        Just be based. Bury your clothes in the cold dank ground before a performance, 48 hours. Then dig it up, and smell like the earth. Smell like the dead.

        And after that, be sure to get hold of a couple of pig heads, which is easy. Everyone eats pig. But not the head. Then throw them into the crowd at the concert. Add a few piss bottles too.

        You’re welcome.

          Copying 90s Mayhem is only cool if he’s somehow Dead himself and the shotgun blasted him 3 decades forward in time Cecil. Anon needs his own gimmick

      Artistic talent isn’t impressive to women unless you are very popular or financially successful.

      Lifts are fine under 2". Anything more than that is very noticeable. I’d pair a 1" lift with a pair of chunky/heeled boots personally.

      Make sure your hair is done well too. Most eyes are on you as frontman.

        it’s only noticeable because of the angle of the foot, if you add a fusion or foam to the arch to the sole it will raid up the heel and you will walk normally

    How can I appear shorter instead? This seems to be a much more difficult thing to do. I’m average height (6’2") and want to be smaller, for fashion reasons. But I want to keep the same proportions.

    Bad argument. Prince did all kinds of ridiculous shit with his appearance, including wearing shoes with massive heels to make him look taller. Prince was larger than life and theatrical and experimented with makeup. It’s not about height, forget the shoe lifts.

    I say that it’s not a necessity because I am already tall-ish. The point of the shoe lifts is to be significantly taller than everyone else in the band as an aesthetic choice. If I didn’t wear shoe lifts it would be acceptable, but with shoe lifts the look is enhanced. It’s the difference between "The singer looks okay" and "wow that singer sure is heckin tall." Think John Wayne wearing shoe lifts when he’s already 6’4" just so he can mog the shit out of everyone in the room.
    That’s what I am trying to get at with this thread. What can I do to enhance my look as a performer? What can I do to look even just 2% better or more interesting?

    Hard rock, yes.

      > has dudes in eyeshadow. They look great. Gay? Yes, but homosexuals have style. Eyeshadow works amazing on stage-distances as does lip gloss. Accentuate facial features and expression
      >Smile, frown, be more dramatically emotive. Big motions, use your arms
      >Bring girls on stage, maybe up from the audience. "Woah, he’s next to a girl. My instincts say this man is chad" and "omg I hope he picks me to come up :3"

        Great idea on the contacts and hair extensions. I’ll see what I can do about getting a short fat keyboard player so we all look even more awesome.

      at that point I wouldn’t try to hide the lifts but just wear some straight up platform shoes, seems counterintuitive to hide trying to make yourself tall if you’re already tall and trying to seem more "interesting"

    Start with elevator shoes with built in wedge. I like Masaltos selling Tronisco shoes which is a Spanish shoemaker, the shoes are pretty good quality even without the gimmick. They are mostly classic styles though. Beware of chink shoes when shopping for elevator shoes, you can tell them apart by the chink machine generated brand names and the reused ad images.

    Then you want to add a lift insole such as the one you posted, but something better with a high friction surface to prevent slipping, and additional wedges. You can use the wedges separately with other insoles for comfort. Again, beware of chink design such as the air bubble crap you posted, which will make plastic squeak noises while walking.

    For a start I recommend you can get some sized up boots you own and add insoles. Always beware that there is only so much insole you can add before your foot is peaking out the shoe.

    get a boot with 1.8-2 inch sole, add in the lift and one wedge, cut some 1 inch foam and add it to the toe to level your foot, with that you get 4.5 inches of height added
    mind you most people have soles giving them .8-1.2 inches normally so you only get 3.5 added
