Easy - get a big bra from Primark and fill it up with padding! It's so much easier (and more comfortable) to make small chests big than the other way around.

I'm super-worried about cosplaying the Witch. Aside from the revealing-ness, it's going to be october. -shiver-


I assume you mean L4D2 Witch? I did it with a lycra bodysuit rather than skin so I could be lovely and grey without being too nakey and cold. Also because it means you can paint up the bodysuit in advance and not take ages on the day painting yourself... of course you end up dyed a nice shade of corpse grey for a week or so if you decide to paint the bodysuit whilst wearing it... lol.

Eternal Sailor Moon. Its very complex, and I dont think the outfit would look right on me. '

Ooo good topic.

I've wanted to do Princess Kida from Atlantis: The Lost Empire (the bikini top and skirt look) for the last 5 years, but keep chickening out. I most recently chickened out last weekend, just 3 hours before I was due to go fabric shopping for May Expo.

In the end, I decided to switch to Princess Tamina's slave girl costume from The Prince of Persia, which has a handkerchief top that hides some of the stomach area. So now I have 2 months to tone up my tummy. I'm now taking Pilates, I've got anti-cellulite gel and I've ordered a waist-training corset to wear for the next 2 months. Wish me luck!

Leia and her metal underwear from Starwars. I absolutely adore it, but it's metal... And I don't know how to make that work, last time I used metal for anything I ended up with a spike through my thumb.
Plus it's obcenely skimpy.

Sylvanas Windrunner from WoW in her undead armour. Again, I just wouldn't know where to start (though I doubt that'll stop me if I ever have the money enough) and it'd be so warm ._.

My worries about cosplaying are mostly about body shape, since my stomach and thighs arent that small and they do show... also its the state it's in... body hair isnt something Anime characters suffer with only for comic effect and for most of the normal characters, they aren't old enough for it. So I can't really do any that wear shorts or the like.

Also it's also its not easy to stay cool in costume, even putting it on can be quite warm... so wearing heavy heavy costumes and furry aren't exactly idea.

Best way to get over the fear - JUST DO IT ^_^

Some of my costumes have made me a little nervous due to being revealing or complicated, but I went ahead and did them anyway, and I'm proud of myself for it as some have become my very best work.

There are other things to think about. For example, my Juclecia costume is very revealing in the back, so I chose to wear it at a small hotel-based con rather than a larger event like Ame or Expo. Had it not been for the Soul Calibur competition I'd also have reserved Tira for non-family events, as I don't really think that hugely revealing costumes are something that small children need to see. So if there's a costume you're concerned about wearing but really want to make, consider doing it for a smaller, more private event instead! That way,if it turns out better than you thought, you can rewear it somewhere bigger, or if it's a disaster fewer people will have been witness to it

Its true, it really is about just doing it but sometimes the pressure we put on ourselves causes us to hold back and miss out on the oppertunity.

I've had a secret desire to cosplay Lady Oscar from Rose of Versailles for quite a long time but have always managed to talk myself out of it. To begin with it was because I only wanted to cosplay well known characters (something I've since come to learn isn't necessarily right) and then it changed to being because I'm in such awe of it that I'd be terrified of not doing it justice. I suppose its almost holding back out of respect.

Touching on what you say about your costumes, I've always been impressed at how well you've pulled off revealing costumes. You've managed to always make them look classy instead of tacky and thats not an easy thing to do. I think part of it is about how you carry yourself and your poses, both of which you're extremely good at.

Three of my upcoming costumes are skin tight, and I'm pretty worried about this. My boyfriend keeps promising to help me tone up (and has for the past year but I still havent seen any support as of yet!) so that I'll be ready for it without any body hang ups.
My Jill valentine battlesuit, being one of these is also pretty scary because of the amount of detail. I'm a real perfectionist so I'm worried I wont do her justice.

...Mink, from Dragon Half.
I contemplated the idea for half a second, then put the DVD back down. I'm not sure anyone, including myself, would want to see me wandering around in what is essentially an outfit you'd wear to a beach if you were uber confident.

Also, any character with blonde hair. My mother has me convinced that I wouldn't look good with any kind of blonde hair.

My mum says my favourite wig doesn't suit me but I love it and so do others! Mums can be kinda biased =p.

Anyway I'm terrified of crossplaying personally, there is a couple I would do but I tried to do a Heero Yuy cosplay and as Shakira once said my hips certainly don't lie. My chest could be bound but my hips and bottom properly ruined the outfit =/. Also I don't feel comfortable cosplaying anime characters without some eye makeup on as I don't really have an anime appropriate face. It makes me feel nervous when trying to cosplay male anime characters as I don't know what make up to do!

This made me smile! I had similar thoughts at lunch today whilst in the queue at McDonalds. I'm going to the film and comic con as Harley Quinn (I know, REAL original)my current panics are bra marks and back fat haha!

Oh, good idea! Thanks for the advice~!

Haha, I've accidentally dyed myself purple and yellow before trying to paint a bodysuit. So I suppose I'm used to it by now ^^

im actully quite nervous as to afraid im kinda a first time cosplayer so every thing is abit scary - for me it like is this costume good enough in regards to personal skill , will i just look odd and people ask me what i actually am and how do i make all of these parts /how do i start , its very challanging

Also with many of my favorite manga characters i fear if i try to cosplay them i might be too revealed .

however on the bright side i really am starting to love cosplay im getting really into it and most of the nerves are outwayed by exitment - hugs


01 May 2011 - 22:0755257

Any female characters. It's so ridiculous of me but all the ones I like/would ever have inclination to cosplay wear skirts and such (Ayane and Kasumi from Dead or Alive come to mind especially). With my current size, it will just look bad and there's no way I could be confident.

I'm actually terrified to do one of my planned cosplays because it involves shorts and I'm so self-conscious about my legs ;A;

I'm self conscious about my legs too! You could always wear skin tone tights if you are worried about imperfections on your legs? Thats what I'm going to do >.<
Im cosplaying black rock shooter soon and the only issue I have with her right now is the halterneck bikini she wears. Those sort of bikinis really scare me as you need to tie a string at your back to secure them. I need to get one like this soon but I'm worried about it falling off or loosening during expo! :/ I was thinking about getting a bikini top with a strap instead of string but I want my costume to be at least 99% accurate! TT_TT


02 May 2011 - 14:5955297
At the mo, my Morrigan Aensland cosplay ^^;


02 May 2011 - 15:3155303
Um.. At the moment, would be Genjo Sanzo from Saiyuki. He's so manly and tall and I'm.. The opposite. =__=

Thank you! I can't believe I never thought of that. xD On the good side, I never really have to waste money on buying chest binders (wait, is that a good thing..? -.-)

Am definitely scared for when I cosplay Stocking at some point. I dont know if my face suits female cosplays and I definitely know my chest size doesnt allow for female characters most of the time. ;_; I jsut hope I dont end up looking like a man in a skirt.

My honest opinion, Id think you'd make a good stocking, and dont worry about being flat chested I am to, you can still look sexy, you've have really nice defined face

I heart you for this.

My confidence- +5 points.

What am I most worried for right now because of body issues? Chel from The Road to El Dorado. Agreed to do it with friends, and I'll be wearing a bandeau top and a loincloth. So I'm having body issues and having the joy of finding a properly fitting strapless bra for my boobs ;_;

Big Sister (Bioshock)
Due to the fact I am bad at making 100% custom cosplays, I'm overweight (Not by much, but I have huge thighs.) and I get really paranoid when I make cosplay myself because I always think it looks shitty compared to other people's.

Yoko Littner (TTGL)
Body shape.

Terezi (Homestuck)
Body shape, makeup (I hate makeup of any sort, I get paranoid that it's rubbing off and ect)

I can't think of anymore specifically. But I get scared to cosplay anything due to my weight and seeing that good cosplayers are always skinny and a healthy weight. I'm not overweight by THAT much, but it's enough to make me worry about my overall appearance. I get scared to cosplay anything too revealing, or anything thats female. I crossplay, a LOT. I've recently ordered a binder (Got it today!) and I feel heaps more confident looking like a guy. I hate expecting to always look like a girly girl, I just have no confidence at all because of what is expected for a typical girl. i.e big boobs, long hair, smooth face, nice body, ect. It just drives me nuts. So I've always crossplayed.

Females just annoying the heck out of me in anime as they almost ALWAYS have huge tits and revealing clothing. Hence why I'm scared to cosplay women, full stop.

A lot of people think it's weird that I dress as men when it comes to cosplay, but whatever. I hate cosplaying women, they're all so... eugh. Men have more clothing (Normally) which can hide your body.

Of course, if you have the body to cosplay a woman with revealing clothing, you'll look AWESOME. But when you look like me with large hips, big thighs and overall an apple shaped body, it looks kinda bad.

I do have heaps of self esteem though, I just choose not to express it in a feminine way.

Wow, I rambled a lot. Heh.

Yoko - Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann..

I've always loved her character ever since I started watching TTGL and my friends have identified similarities between Yoko and myself's personalities and body shapes. (In other words, I have boobs and hips LOL)

I'm scared of cosplaying as her because I'm VERY body concious, I wont even go to public swimming pools anymore. It's hard for me to admit, but I'm not exactly a large girl either (I have this thing where I think i'm fat and disgusting) so I really need to fix that and convince myself that i'm not chub and eating burgers is okay XDXDXD
And what also puts me off is I hear alot of people who cosplay Yoko do it for attention (apparently) and some Yoko cosplayers get called sluts or get treated like some sort of whore ;---;
I'm very very very afraid D8

Regardless of this, I have a TTGL group for Kitacon4 so I have to do it oTL;;
*reluctantly rolls into the gym*
