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’t know who I was, it made me all the more grateful for those who did and complimented my cosplay.

Here’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’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.

Not to sound self centered or anything, but I’m pretty cute as Kiki. Cosplayed this Saturday at OMG!con in Owensboro Kentucky! I can’t wait to cosplay her again!~ I felt really good in this cosplay, even though it was pretty simple it made my confidence sky rocket!

Hanji Zoe cosplay by myself (doodlekins) 
Photo was taken at Colossalcon 2014
Despite my hair being messed up by the wind and one of my prop pieces breaking, I think I looked awesome and I felt really confident that day.

My Jigglypuff gjinka from Pokemon. I was actually wearing this at a cosplay dance party hosted by my council and somebody snapped this picture when I wasn’t looking. I have to say it couldn’t have been a better shot because I am totally in character at this point and dancing and singing along with the DJ.
