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.

Mid West cosplayer Nerd Girl sent these amazing photos of her fem-Wolverine cosplay and she certainly does a fantastic job of staying in character. If you would like to see more of her cosplay, you can take a look at her Facebook fan page and see more outstanding cosplay! Thank you to Nerd Girl for allowing us to share the pics of her cosplay!

annasauras asked: Hi in June I will be attending a comic con in Belfast United Kingdom as a half Spanish girl I'm quite curvy and I don't know what to wear all the costumes I see show arms which I'm uncomfortable with showing and they are quite revealing I don't want to have to resort to a kigurumi. If you could help with some ideas I would appreciate this very much :)


Answer:

If you are uncomfortable with any part of your body, or part of a costume, modifying the design of the costume is ALWAYS an option!

Character: Warhammer 40k Commissar
Location: Chestermere Black Library Expo

I got a LOT of attention in this outfit (I wonder why…) and it was all friendly and positive. The black jacket, boots and tights were very slimming, and I felt really confident displaying my best “assets” (as well as a SWEET Russian military hat!)
