Hello everyone! I am trying to lose weight for cosplay (and for my health in general). My next big cosplay will hopefully be at AnimeUSA in October.

I was hoping to find a weight-loss group made up of cosplayers, and I think I struck gold :D

I've always been kind of "chubby" since high school, so I don't really know what it would be like to lose all the weight. I've tried many times to diet and exercise, but this time I know I'll get there for sure! I wonder how far I can go. I think my ultimate goal is a jean size 8.

I'm on my way to DragonCon too! :)

*waves* Hello everyone. :) My name is Christina. Trying to get back into my size 8's if at all possible after pregnancy weight has ballooned me ten sizes. Wanting to prepare for a Synergy costume that I'm preparing if I can make it happen by this year's Con.

Hi all!
I've decided to start back with Spark People after reading the 4 week jumpstart, and I must say that I'm pretty excited. One of my goals is to get ready for Dragoncon in 2014 (we booked the Marriott so we plan on doing a lot of cosplay). Right now, I'm not much of an anime cosplayer - I tend to lean more towards post-apocalyptic and steampunk. Dragoncon is my main con of the year, but there are two here in NC that I plan on attending too.

It's nice to meet like-minded people!

Hello people. I've never been here before. But a friend turned me to it. Seeing people with similar goals is helpful. Hopfully I can do this. I'd love to make some buddies along the way. The more support the better.
My favorite anime is Code Gease.
The cosplay I'd like to do is Heartless from Kingdom Hearts or possibly Nakuru Narumi from Mayo Chiki.

Hello! Nice to meet you! I'm brand new to sparkpeople and I'm hoping to get down to a nice slim figure for some cosplay and lolita. I'm hoping for maybe a couple of weight loss buddies with similar weight loss goals for support/to give support. Anyone interested?

Hi there, everybody~
I just found this group, and while I'm working on getting fit for more than just cosplay, it has been a great motivator, at times!! I'm trying to work on making more like-minded fitness-y friends on here, so I'm really excited to have found some anime and cosplay related groups!

Hiya everyone, my name is Brittany, but my nickname is Bunny. My favorite anime is Sailor Moon, always and forever. I have some other favorites too; but that's too long of a list. Heehee. A cosplay I would LOVE to do is Makoto Kino/ Sailor Jupiter.

Warehouse 13 is the shizz-nizz! I still need to watch the newest episode, though. I have it recorded! Eureka is pretty awesome too, but I can never find it when it shows!!

OMG, this group! It didn't even occur to me that "cosplay" might be a motivator for weight loss, because I just kind of ruled out cosplay as an option for myself, but now.... OMG!

</squee>

Now that I'm here, I feel like I should ask ... is non-anime cosplay also acceptable, here? Not that I have anything against anime; I'm just a n00b to the genre. But I like strong female superheroes, characters from Joss Whedon TV shows (I could lose weight and rock a mean Kaylee, I bet, though I'm just as likely to crossplay Mal, for the excuse to buy that sweet brown duster ;)), and ... I don't even know. I haven't had time to consider. I'm excited at the possibilities!

Anyway, hi! I have a standard office job with some web development thrown in. In my spare time I'm a tech nerd, a fan of geeky shows with good female characters (e.g. Warehouse 13, Eureka), a female brony, a geocacher (at least when I'm not injured), and a reader of urban fantasy (which I acknowledge is mostly fluff with no substance, but it's SO FUN!).

For weight loss I'm doing Ideal Protein. (I have a recent blog post explaining it, if you want to know more.) I know that's not everyone's bag, and I'm no evangelist--we've all gotta do what works for us. This is a "doctor's orders" sort of thing, for me.

But I can bond over drinking lots of water, eating lots of lettuce, and finding clever things to do with vegetables and lean meats (without adding sugar/carbs). :)

Anyway, I'm glad to meet you all!

Hello everyone. I am Neko-Len. Cosplaying has always been something I enjoyed but I know my body causes a lot of complications and boundaries for me. I am looking forward to reaching my cosplay goals along with everyone here~!

There is no such thing as success by doing nothing. In order to get results you have to push hard and earn them.

I am new to Spark People and one of my big motivations for losing weight is to do Cosplay. There is a convention I want to go to in November so I am hoping to get a good way to my goal before then.

Hi all! I'm re-sparking after a long lapse and hoping to lose a bunch of weight so I can, a) look awesome in my costumes, and b) not feel so dead after the cons are over!

My current favorite costumes are:
Cowgirl Wonder Woman
Thor (gender swapped)
Mabel Pines (my husband cosplayed Dipper, I might wear Dipper later)
Speed Racer (gender swapped)
Han Solo (gender swapped)

Yeah, I'm a big fan of girling up male characters :) I also like to make (and occasionally buy) regular clothes with a geeky theme, like a skirt made of Star Wars fabric or Tetris-print leggings. My goal is to have Star Wars clothes for any given situation. Pretty much all I'm missing is formalwear :)

Making costumes and going to cons are pretty much my favorite things in the world. It's great to meet like-minded friends!

Hello, I'm Lashwynn, and while I'm not a big fan of Anime, I am a big fan of Cosplay, that is my main motivation for loosing weight, I would like to be Mystique at Anime North this year, and will do everything in my power to gain the proper body!

Hello. :) My name is Chiqui, from the Philippines. :) Cosplay is a hobby much alive here and while I've been able to fit into "default" costumes that allow a bit of "voluptuousness," (like being a pirate lass, for instance), I want to venture into costumes which I wouldn't have otherwise worn in my current weight, and look (epicly) good in them. :)))) Cosplay was my first motivator to lose about 30 pounds back in 2003; needless to say, I ballooned back to my old weight and then some, making me less confident in one of my prized hobbies. This time, ten years later, my goal is not just to fit into a "dream cosplay" character but to keep in good health as I am beginning my 30's (Age isn't really a matter in cosplay, right? Haha well perhaps depending on character choice, but even that can be fixed. xD).

It'd be great to join in this journey of weight loss with you guys so we can look awesomely great in our choice of costumes. :D Pleased to meet you all!

Hello! I'm not super familiar with a lot of anime, so I can't say I have a favorite. I am definitely more in to sci-fi and comics. I haven't done much cosplay before, but I love costumes and dressing up and cosplay sounds like a lot of fun. I am going to a Star Trek convention this summer with some friends and family and I am hoping to lose a little weight by then. I plan on going as Jadzia Dax. I think it will be a lot of fun :)

Hi all!
Like GIRLCALLEDBOB I used to be much of a LARPer (plot based indoor LARPs where you don't get to hit each other with sticks. Unfortunately, that's not a big thing here either. We usually do conspiracy, scheme and shenaningans type of plays in various times/settings) than a cosplayer. I'm also a little bit into face-paint, and I think I'm a lot better at it than sewing. There's been a cosplay event near me for the last two years, but I didn't attend it because a. my costumes are way too amateurish than other participants and b. I wouldn't look good in my dream costumes. Now that I reached my maintenance range, I think it's time I learned how to make better costumes :)

Hey guys, my name is Maye, and I am in the Phoenix, AZ area. Honestly I don't cosplay with Anime, I prefer comics and videogame Cosplay. I am hoping to goto the next Phoenix Con as Sally Jupiter (watchmen), which shows a good amount of skin, but for the most part covers the areas I am working on lol. however next year I am hoping to be able to do something like Ivy (from Soul Calibur) or Miranda (from Mass Effect).

Motivation doesn't last but neither does bathing, that's why it is recommended daily.

HELLO! I've been hiding for a while :( I started a second job, daughter started a job and went back to school. I needed a little while to figure out a schedule that incorporated good eating and work outs! I think I have it. I hope things are going well for you. I plan to check in more often with my SparkFriends and SparkTeams. I miss y'all!

Have a Spark-a-licious Spark-tastic Spark-y Spark-ful day!

Greetings my fellow geeks in costume.

I've never really broken into the Cosplay, it is not as huge here in England, but I am a Live Action Roleplayer, so I hoped I could hang out with you lot. I've been in the scene for 10 odd years, and know as well as most how hard to is to be a girl in kit when your body limits what you can get away with.

I have always shyed away from dresses and corsets. While I got nice upper assets which comes with being a curvy girl, it is everything else that makes me self-conscious, so I've hidden behind armour and masks.

Here is an image of me taken this August 2012

tinyurl.com/ct96qrc

So I wish to loose about 30kg in weight so I can go from playing a harden Arthurian knight to one day having the option of playing a svelte Elf.

Hi there, everyone! My name's Ashe, and I'm a professional cosplayer in the Kansas area. I've been cosplaying since about 2006, give or take, (I know, I'm a baby compared to a lot of others, I just got a late start!) and I've been running my own commissions shop for about two years. I handmake all of my cosplays, unless it happens to be a casual/closet cosplay that I have available or that I can pick up at a thrift store, such as my Ruki and Aziraphale outfits, and my Halloween Town Axel. I shift wildly between old-school anime and games all the way out to graphic novels and actual novels, as well as Japanese Rock and Pop. (I won't list all my cosplays; they're insanely long)

Well, I actually started on Sparkpeople a year ago, but due to time constraints and lackluster motivation, I abandoned my page until just last night, when I decided it was time to get in shape if I was ever going to be able to pull off Lady Hawkeye from the Avengers. So, I went searching, and lo and behold, there's a cosplay team! So, here I am, and hopefully, here I stay!

Hi guys, I'm introducing myself! I happened to find CK when surfing recent blog posts one day, and found a whole new world of cosplay on here! I haven't cosplayed in probably two years or so due to weight gain, and I'd love to get back down to where I can feel confident and comfortable in costume again.

In the cosplay world, I go by Integral. I've been cosplaying off and on since 1998 (yeah.. I'm old :X ) You can find me on cosplaylab.com and cosplay.com on there, as well as a group site I'm a part of over at paper-wings.org. In fact, if you look through enough photos, I'm sure you could order them all by the year I wore them, as you can watch my weight go up and up and up! But that's all changing now.

I love darker series, but I'm not so much in touch with what's out now. I'm currently keeping up with the Bleach and Naruto mangas, I love Hellsing, Petshop of Horrors, older CLAMP stuff, Haibane Renmei, and the Book of Bantorra. As far as videogames go.. my favorites are the Castlevania series, anything in the Shin Megami Tensei/ Persona universes, and the Tales universes. Sad fact: I have cosplayed from multiple Tales games, have plans for other Tales costumes, but I have never once beaten a Tales of.. game. I get 3/4 through and quit. I've come really close to beating Tales of Symphonia and Tales of the Abyss, but never finished. Whoops!

I don't really have any costumes planned at the moment.. I'm just kind of waiting to see how things go. However, I think that I'd pick some different costumes if I got down to my goal weight. I usually go for busty characters, but lately I've been doing full-body and crossdress outfits to hide my body. (Kurotsuchi Mayuri from Bleach and Tellah from FF4 are prime examples :X ) If I got down into the "hot again" range, I think it would be fun to do Rise Kujikawa from Persona 4 or Mitsuru Kirijo from Persona 3. If you compare that to the last MegaTen character I was considering, it's kind of hilarious. I was going to make a Rangda costume with a painted bodysuit and lots of feathers! I still might do that, though... I like the challenge

Um.. also.. I like to talk. Sorry! That was long!

Hi Peanuts

So what doyou want to know? Hetalia is pretty cute. I think it's funny, no one in the US would get away with the stereotyping that they use in it. We're too PC.
I'm old, so I'm usually not on the cutting edge of what's new, but I know what I like. It's great that you take your daughter and her friends and thay you're willing to be dressed up. I love seeing that at cons. Parents that take an interest and participate in things with their children.

Welcome!

Hello, I hope I don't offend anyone but I am not really into anime myself. My 16 year old daughter is. I take her and her friends to two anime-cons a year. The cons are in August and January. They want to dress me up and there is no way I can make it work in the shape I am in. I joined this group in hopes of learning more about anime so I could keep up with the kids. I do think some of the story lines sound interesting and I find the Hitalia characters adorable.

Hi everyone! So I've kinda restarted my SPARKpeople journey and so I decided that this time around, meeting people will help me be more accountable. :)

1) Name is Shauntel, but I go by Shai as well.
2) Fave anime will always be Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon. But I also love Naruto, FMA, Bleach, Hell Girl and Ao no Exorcist. There are more but those were the first few to come to mind. :)
3) As far as dream cosplays, I have three currently: Super Sailor Mercury, Sailor Starfighter and Shura Kirigakure from Ao no Exorcist.

Cynthia...I reeeally want your hair. I'm a steal it. But seriously, was it hard to bleach? I have really dark hair and I want to do vibrant colors, but I know I'll have to bleach it and I don't want to just...destroy it... Did you have it done professionally?

Actual hair. :D I dyed/bleached the under-half of all of my hair. I wanted to do something crazy before I chop it all off. (It's almost past my behind lol)

Also nice to meet you~ ^^

Hey all~ finally stepping out of my silent corner of the internet haha

1. I go by Eriya or Keameia online (or aoineko on DA)
2. Too many favorites but some outstanding ones would be FMA, Digimon, Emma, Otoyomegatari, Berserk, DGM, 7 Seeds, Monster, etc etc Also am a pretty avid gamer.
3. Atm I'm working on Ritz's costume from Final Fantasy Tactics Advanced. My real motivation is to be slim for Anemone (Eureka Seven) cosplay.

Nice to meet everyone! :3

Hello everyone my name is Romy.
I've had several series that I've liked through out the years, among them: Onegai Teacher, Death note, Evangelion, Video Girl Ai and a bunch more.

My cosplay motivation are designs from Shun ya Yamasita (artist), and Chun - Li! I've always had thick thighs so I figured I just make them more muscular and I could pull off a great Chun - Li!

3. A few of Ciel's outfits from Black Butler, Ellis from Left 4 Dead 2, and a few classes from Team Fortress 2. Need to make my chest flatter, aha.

2. FLCL is my all-time favorite, followed by Paranoia Agent and most movies by Satoshi Kon.

3. Amber from Suckerpunch. My friends want to do a Suckerpunch group and I really want to fit in with those lovely ladies. :3 Also trying to do Mello and Matt, but I'll never pull that off with these hips. o_o

1. Crystal
2. Paradise Kiss, Chobits, K-on, Steins Gate, Gosick, Cowboy Bebop, Fushigi Yugi, flcl, kore wa zombie desu, a lot of everything.
3. Right now my motivational cosplay is Mio from K-on, it's simple and covered up. I like it because it's a good starter cosplay to get back into the hobby and easy to walk around in. I have a lot of the costume done, i just don't fit into it. :p I'm hoping to reach my goal by July 4th for AX 2012 in LA. Hopefully meet a weight loss buddy here to loose weight with and meet up with at AX. Thanks for having me here. ^_^

1. Hello everyone! I'm Leighann. I don't have a nickname or anything like that. You can tag one on me if you like.
2. My favorite titles are Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle, Pandora Hearts, Ouran High School Host Club, Baccano, and Trigun.
3. I've been planning on cosplaying for sometime now, but I haven't been fully comfortable with the idea because of my size. Now that I'm looking to get thinner, my goal is to cosplay Reim Lunettes from Pandora Hearts. Because glasses. Anyway, my friends are also trying to talk me into cosplaying Oz from Pandora Hearts. We'll see.

1. Guten Tag! My name is Kate, but most know me as kitty kat (including my mother).
2. My favorite animes include Outlaw Star, Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, Black Lagoon and Gurren Lagann.
3. Originally I had planned on doing a kid Simon from Gurren Lagann, but a friend of mine decided she would like to try her hand at cosplay for the first time (her first foray into otaku culture was at Otakon last year). So, to make a more complete group (boyfriend is going as Kamina, fingers crossed) I will be trying for Yoko at Otakon. Of course, this means I need to drop my pounds like they're hot in order to feel comfortable in this costume.

1. My name is Joanna AKA Jo AKA Teh Jojo AKA Momiji
2. I don't really have a favorite. *gasp* I know, everyone hates that answer! Lately I've been doing a lot of Bleach. After talking to a bunch of friends who have demanded my head otherwise, I will probably read Black Butler next.
3. Not one in particularly. Lots. Most of the female characters I wanna cosplay have openings around the belly of thigh area. I'm not "fat", but I'm almost there. So I wanna get toned enough to be comfortable wearing the cosplays!
