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 was taken at Wizard World New Orleans. I was cosplaying as First Mate Piggy from the Pigs In Space sketch on The Muppet Show.

This is my first cosplay that I made and showed it off at my second con- Con+Alt+Delete. I was Female Garterbelt from Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt. I was happy with how it turned out as well as how I looked in it. :3 This was one of the photos my friend took of me during a photo shoot.

This is a cosplay that I personally am really prod of. I know some of you may not think I am plus sized or that I belong on this blog but I promise you that even more people call me fat than don’t.I’ve been struggling with my weight for a long tome being told by doctors that I’m horribly overweight for my age and size. Wearing cosplays and cosplaying it’s self has helped me to gain more confidence about myself but I still struggle with it a lot. 
For anybody who is wondering “How is she plus sized?”Well I was 180lbs am now 150lbs and still can’t find clothing that I can fit in because of the size of my stomach and waist. Id really like to share this image to you all and be a part of the community…  even thought I know how unlikely this post will make it past the admin because of my experience seeing plus sized cosplayer blog having a size requirement to being plus sized. 

MOD NOTE: I struggled with whether or not I should edit the above submitted commentary before queuing this post, but ultimately decided to leave it be.As stated in the “about us” section, plus-sized, for the purposes of this blog, covers more than some arbitrary clothing size or number on the scale to include anyone who would fall outside the general accepted “ideal” body composition. The idea being to show that one doesn’t have to be a swimsuit model (or have the body of one) to have a brilliant cosplay or to be accepted and appreciated.
So, feywilde, welcome. I hope this will help you find a more positive and optimistic outlook on the body positive cosplay community.
