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.
I saw her wondering around the convention center and was really amazed at Colossalcon! I wish I could have gotten a picture but I found one from her cosplayer page from Deathcom Multimedia and had to submit it!

"This was my first cosplay ever and I was so nervous! I debuted this at Wizard World Ohio Comic Con. Everyone there was so nice to me even though I(a big girl) was walking around dressed as Wonder Woman. So many people asked for pictures and were awed when I told them I had made my costume. I hope to make more costumes in the near future!"
My Sail dress Ariel costume. I was really nervous about this one at the start, but I came to really love it. This took me a long time to go ahead and decide to do, I was so nervous at first. But the response I’ve gotten is positive and I’m so glad I went ahead and did it.
[note from the cosplayer: it is important to note that I have faced an extreme amount of negativity based on this particular cosplay. People have repeatedly told me to stop cosplaying Canary, and that I am too fat for this particular costume. However, I’ve reached a point in my life where I do what I want, regardless of the opinions of others, and I love being Black Canary! She’s one of my inspirations and I really hope I do her the justice she deserves.]
