BODY POSITIVE COSPLAY APPRECIATION!

Questions/Comments/Concerns   Submit  
This is a body postive blog. This blog is for the love and appreciation of under appericated cosplayers. This love and appreciation is expressed through the posting of awesome, epic and badass cosplays who just so happen to be 'plus size', or otherwise have 'non-ideal' body types.

While the main focus of this blog is larger cosplayers, PLUS-SIZED DOES NOT EQUATE TO UGLY OR WRONG, FAT IS NOT A BAD WORD and being called plus-sized is not an insult! There are many body types that fall under this heading (for the purposes of this blog) and it is the intention of this blog to show that you don't need to be shaped like an action figure or a model to have brilliant cosplay and look amazing. The goal is to celebrate ALL body types that don't fall under the generally accepted 'ideal'.

Far too often we only see these cosplayers posted and used in order for people to body police and to tell others what they should and should do within a hobby that is meant to be fun, enjoyable and often times empowering.

There will be NONE of that nonsense here. If you submit and I feel that you are submitting something just to 'take the piss' and be an arsehole I will not post it. If it continues I will simply ban you. Likewise, if you reblog something from this blog and add anything nasty, mean, body-policing or out of turn I will block you from this blog.

I will not allow the mean-spirited trolls of the internets to muck-up what this blog is meant to be about.

I am not perfect and therefore may occasionally make blunders when sending things to the queue to share, but I will be taking extra care from now on when making queuing runs. If you find a photo of yourself here and you wish it not to be simply send a message to the ask box and it will be removed with apologies.

Thank you, Management.

This is my first cosplay ever and I feel extremely proud of it. Though many people didn&#8217;t know who I was, it made me all the more grateful for those who did and complimented my cosplay.

Here&#8217;s some photos from my 30th birthday!   I dressed as Mami, from Puella Magi Madoka Magicka.   I was really pleased with the costume - the costume and the shoes were custom made for me from some wonderful stores from Etsy.  In fact, when I sent them my measurements the costume makers actually had to make an entirely new jig because I was too big for their existing one - but they didn&#8217;t charge me anything extra for the extra work they had to do.  They were WONDERFUL to deal with and the quality of the costume was stunning!
For any other plus size people looking for great cosplay costumes, I recommend you check them out.

Hello lovlies!
My name is Stephanie, and I am a plus size beauty/fashion blogger from Chicago. I am also body positive and really love the community. I&#8217;ve submitted myself to various body positive blogs and have met many amazing people that I had the pleasure of connecting with. I truly believe that the body positive community has made me feel better about myself. It is so comforting to know that they&#8217;re people out there like myself, and that I am not alone.
Since I&#8217;ve been getting more into blogging, I have recieved many messages from people who are struggling with body image and just want someone to talk too. I always keep my ask open because of this and reply to people as quickly as I can. Unfortunately, I am not all knowing of everything and feel that I can&#8217;t really help some people. I&#8217;ve been wresling ideas about how to deal with this, and finally decided on making a tinychat. I think this would be the best solution, because it&#8217;ll be a place where people can come, share their stories, and connect with other people&#8230;In real time!
A little information about tinychat, if you don&#8217;t know. Tinychat is basically a chat room that is capable of holding a mass amount of people. The people that join the room can broadcast themselves via webcam or just by using their voice. It&#8217;s not a requirement to broadcast yourself, if you don&#8217;t feel comfortable its totally ok! I&#8217;ll be broadcasting myself via webcam and voice(maybe&#8230;I distest my voice but I&#8217;ll try xD). You can also upload youtube videos so we could have music in the background, or just play funny videos.
My main goal for this room is just to have people connect with each other and feel like they&#8217;re not alone. Because I know that feeling all too well. It isn&#8217;t fun.
So if this feels like something you&#8217;ll be interested, then please follow my tumblr so you&#8217;ll see the post on when it&#8217;ll go live. I&#8217;m still weary of the date and time, so if you have any suggestions then send me a message! Right now, I&#8217;m thinking about saturday evening.
