All the way through this thread no one seems to have mentioned that in LotR the actors were chosen for their proportions,and their acting ability, not their height match to the characters played.In an iconic fantasy film of this stature, sizeism was never an issue.
One of the best comments on height came from Abraham Lincoln,possibly the tallest US pres ever, asked what he thought on that question, he said that as long as your feet touched the ground your legs were long enough.
Some people are born critics, and if your heights not in question, they'll just go on to something else

Hey, wasn't that guy who played Gimli actually quite a tall guy? Of course with modern cgi they managed to make him look like a dwarf, but I'm pretty sure he's actually a big bloke!

I think I've grown again... O_O'
The sink seems a lot further way now when I lean down to wash my hands. I've been covered in glue and paint a lot with making Rose's costume, and that's been a lot more noticeable. Also, my back hurts a lot more from continually hunching over whilst making it.

Sadly, regarding what Nightmare Wings said, the person who said she was wrong for doing L from Death Note was a friend of mine...
The same person has since criticised her (by telling ME) that she keeps picking "pathetic" characters to cosplay.

I've not seen Death Note, but from what she's told me L isn't pathetic. Sheena from Tales of Symphonia, is NOT pathetic. Her planned cosplay which isn't possible for this October, Twilight Princess Zelda - is NOT pathetic. However, the character she is doing now may be in the way she acts, but actually harbours a very destructive power. Personally I thought it was about whether or not you yourself like the character and want to do their costume. People are not just penalised for their height and shape, but the characters they choose as well....THOSE are the things I call pathetic.

People need to wise up to what life is to be honest.

If they have something to say about weight, height or even the character have issues of their own.

That is what I have come to find with this person Slim speaks of.

To be honest, I dont care what anyone else says on my cosplays If I am happy then thats all that matters.

ive never had much of a problem with my height...i am quite small (about 1.55 meters) and i am about average weight
i dont think that it matters at all about your size/weight when it comes to cosplay - all that matters is that if the costume is accurate and siuts your body shape
im not saying that over-weight people can't cosplay or anything - it all depends on the costume you choose to wear
i just hate it when ppl organise photoshoots and are looking for the 'perfect' cosplayer </3

Here Here! It does not matter what height and size you are its all about enjoying yourself and showing how much you love the character No cosplay will ever be perfect either!
