I have made a bunch of costumes that I can't fit into, so yes I am motivated to lose weight to get into them. My main one is that my kimono gaps in the front, but I also have a lolita dress I would like to be able to wear.

Rainessa - I would have never thought of it that way, but it makes so much sense! Thanks for sharing!

I talked to my aunt (she used to go to Ren fests) and she mentioned that the renaissance style dresses (the ones actually worn back then, not just in the style of) were rather forgiving of changes in weight. Since people tended to have very few (if any) changes in clothes, a woman's regular clothes also had to be usable as her maternity clothes.

That really does not apply to the topic, but I thought it was an interesting point and helps explains all the laces rather than just sewing a solid garment. I had assumed they were just the fashion of the time rather than a practical matter.

I have a beautiful purple velvet renaissance dress that I would love to fit back into. I wore it in high school choir for our troubadour group. I could definitely use it at the larp I run, but that would mean dropping down to a size 6 from a size 12/14. Not sure if I can get down that low again, but I'm going to give it my best shot!!

I want to lose weight just in general. However, one of the costumes I wore to dragoncon this year (my first year dressing up) would look better if I lost weight (cream dress from Legend (1985 with Tom Cruise and Mia Sara)). I can (and did) wear it now, but it would look better if it could lace tighter in the front.

Are one of your motivations for loosing weight so you can wear a certain costume?
Or to look better in a costume?

What is it, what type of costumed thing do you do and why?
