Thanks for the encourageing words. Just so hard to see any good coming out of this right now. I just feel so lost and down. Just don't see no light at the end of the tunnel and no ambition at all to do anything but lay down which is not like me. Hopefully something good will happen tom'r.
I know what you mean about the skinny mini's in anime. It's TOUGH to find a cosplay idea that doesn't make me feel too fat to do. However, (even) I have done it. It's fun if you can find an idea you're comfortable with.
My fantasy cosplay is Yuko-san from Tsubasa, if I can ever get slim/normal enough to pull it off. I hope I don't look like an old hag by the time I ever get down to that weight!
Welcome to the Everything Japanese team! I'm so glad you've joined the team.
Come and chat with us about all things Japanese and play some games in the FUN Forum. For game rules, check the initial posting in each game thread. The Count in Japanese game and Anime/Manga Alphabet game also list helpful, McAfee-approved links in their initial posting. (I have no idea how to count in Japanese, so I thought others might like some help too.)
