LOL I agree with everyone. It is all about confidence. Show everyone you love yourself and your costume and everyone else will think you are wonderful ^_^ It is all about the skill. Weight should never be an issue *huggles Dragonfly* You go girl^_~

[QUOTE=Lady Sephiroth]Maybe those girls are afraid that you will out do them with your sewing abilities! *gets an idea* I know, you should make an kick @ss costume that's better than theirs and prove to them that you can cosplay just as good, or even better, then they can.[/QUOTE]



Hecka! I second that motion. XD That'd show them all! And it'd shut them up, that's for sure. >.> muahahaha. With everyone's help on the site, you could totally make a kick ars costume. n_n=

What does weight have to do with doing to a convention? Don't listen to them! If you want to go then go, if you want to cosplay then cosplay. Don't let what them stop you. They don't really sound like very good friends, friends are suppost to support you.

it shount matter if your big or small, fat or thin, Cosplayers are cosplayers. We do all of this for fun, no mater who much you deny it, we do it for fun. Some people will skull you for you or put you down for many reasons, but if that happends, one should only take things as a grain of salt and move on. Your better then everyone, everyone is better then everyone because everyone is who they are, they should be proud of themselves for who they are and what they are, regardless of what people say or do.

Personally, I dont think it matters. I've seen many Ample figured cosplayers who do MUCH better than some of the thin ones i've seen.

Also, kudos to those who have the courage to actually go out and cosplay even if your figure is less than perfect. For one thing, you have better skill for being able to tailor the costumes to make it look good.

((small tibbit for no reason, Usagi (sailor moon) isnt really all that skinny in later episodes (dont remember what season, i think either Super S or Sailor stars) since they show Chibiusa making fun of her and zooming in XD))

I second what she said. I was always a lil more cushier than my other friends, and thought nothing of it, until they started making comments. At first didnt want to think much of it, but they just kept saying it regardless of me telling them look I dont criticize you do i? So I just decided to heck with it, if the only reason I am being here is because you are my friends but you are just making me feel low--then your not my friends and I dumped them on their butts. I have been much happier since, made a great new bunch of friends and it does a world of difference.

And P-shaw to your friends telling you not to do cosplay--do what makes you feel happy! Not what anyone else thinks will make you happy or secretly make them happy. And if that made any sense to anyone, its even better ^__^ Good luck!!

Ah yes, just to add, i remember when my own boyfriend (now my ex bwaha) once told me not to cosplay misao as I was "too fat"...i promtly kicked his ass the next day.

he may have knocked my self esteem a bit, but frankly, i'm glad he was such a jerk about it as it helped me to pwn his ass. And as you can see from my sig, my misao costume is going on as planned! XD

#27 DarkDragonfly on 14 years ago

See my boyfriend says Im perfect and would be really upset if I got "skinny" he says healthy is good but thin or skinny isnts attractive
I think its because he doesnt want his eye jabbed out with a rib bone when he lays his head in my lap XD
My last boyfriend was obsessed with me losing weight I was 146 when we first met and when we split I was 96 pounds
I had to go into the hospital for awhile

#28 Mitchi on 14 years ago

good for you :D

At least now i know that anyone who doesnt think i can succesfully cosplay anyone i try to just because of my body shape, he can go live in the gutter with my wavemaster staff up his bung. XD

I'm just glad my friends believe in me to some extent...XD

#29 DarkDragonfly on 14 years ago

LOL!!! OMG THATS A WASTE OF A GOOD STAFF!! At least wack him with it first :P

#30 MeliCat on 14 years ago

Geez, who needs enemies with friends like that! Cosplay whomever you choose, and don't worry about what anyone says, cosplay isn't about that ^_^
