People do costumes from Jem And The Holograms all the time, but the special edition Integrity dolls have never been seen. I'm planning an Integrity Synergy costume, if I can make it happen:

Goku is my current motivational costume. He's my absolute goal cosplay, which I plan to do at Otakon (pretty sure I said all this before though).

BTW there's way too many that I want to do. Fay from Bebop, Iron Man's Hypervelocity, Kitty Pryde... I don't know I have a lot of ideas, but I've never done it because I feel so bulky in costume.

My honey is a big comic book geek, and I love them too, but I would love more to dress up like a Marvel character. I always tell him I'm going to do it when I get thinner. I didn't even know this team existed! AWESOME! More like me!

TJTORRES - I understand your feelings. It's something most people fear, that they won't do the character justice. Just remember, you're doing it for fun, not to impress.

I'm a little nervous because I've never done a cosplay before; fearing i wouldn't be able to do the characters justice. but next year I'm going to try and over come that fear. Next years con I'm going to be going as Agent Venom from the new revamped venom series i want to slim down so i can fit into the costume emoticon

I'm not setting any weight goals for my school girl cosplay so I'm making it for the size I am right now. If I lose some pounds before November I'll just take it in. :)

I've given myself a year to get fit and buff for an epic Goku cosplay. It's taking a lot of protein (i.e. mostly eggs) since I'm trying to reduce my carb intake (mostly bread, pasta, sugar). It seems to be working, until today, which I slipped several times. It's only been three days! My goal is to be at weight by Christmas time so I can build maximum muscle until Otakon comes around again.

Goku. I'm planning on losing a lot of weight and gaining muscle in the next year. My end goal is to enter the 2014 Otakon Hall Costume Contest with him. It'll be my first competition.

I have two cosplays that I would love to go in the future.

One is Makoto Kino/Sailor Jupiter from the Sailor Moon series. Although my favorite character is Usagi, I feel that I could relate more to Makoto; seeing how we have the same hair color, same height (I'm a bit taller though), and I have her same mannerisms.

The second one is Rin Asougi, the main character from the anime Rin~Daughters of Mnemosyne. Now, I don't have the green hair (obviously); however, we have the same build and we both wear glass. Heehee. Doing her cosplay would be pretty simple and I would enjoy doing it.

My FMA military uniform is my current motivation.
I've been cosplaying for three years now, but I have yet to get pictures of myself in cosplay. So, yesterday, me and my bro went out and got a bunch of pictures of us in cosplay. And I noticed two things about my FMA costume: 1) with my shirt tucked in, you can see my belly flop (as I call it, the part of your belly that hangs down cause there's too much fat) and 2) the jacket is REALLY short. I don't think it was that short last year. I mean, it was a good 4-5 inches too short to really use if it is buttoned up.

I've actually got three motivating cosplays, all for different levels of fitness.

One is Teacher's Husband, from FMA.
Two is Sora from Kingdom Hearts (Unchained Memories, I think, is the version in particular)
Three, which probably will never happen, Toriko from, well, Toriko. XD

My motivating cosplay is definitely Makunoichi Ippo from Hajime no Ippo (The Fighting Spirit). It's a boxing manga (though is an anime adaptation).

We are a bunch of friends going as Poison Ivy (after one of the old Batman comics), Catwoman after either the Nolan edition or the old michelle pfeifer version. Then we have a Harley Quinn after the game Arkham city and then we are contemplating if the last girl should be mrs. freeze or 10 of spades (from young justice or batman of the future). Our aim is to do a Batman story line of the style of female villains ;)

I'm also planning to do a pair cosplay with my twin bro as Roxas, he will be Sora (Kingdom Hearts). We plan to eventually do Col. Armstrong and Teacher's husband from FMA:Brotherhood.

As a LARPer my experience is a little different, but if nobody minds, I'd love to share what it is about my costume that makes me want to loose weight. A weird confession if you like.

tinyurl.com/cz5ro9q

See that girl in white ahead of the line of boys? That's me. I'm wearing 1/3 of my bodyweight in steel and having to keep up with those men behind me. In front is a line of enemy, mostly men, eager to beat the **** (insert favourite swear word) out of me. I have to run through the woods, keep up with the boys, be seen to keep up, and do my part to keep their respect. There are not many women warriors, and being one of the rare few, who also choose to wear steel armour, a lot of pressure is sitting on me.

But, it is not working. Last battle I was taken off due to heat exhaustion. The medic found me hyperventilating, with a raised heartbeat and tears streaming down my face. I didn't realise I was injured due to the fact adrenaline was rushing through me, there was blood on my lip an when I got home I discovered 24 bruises.

I can't keep up. I want to, but I can't.

Then comes the more embarrassing reason.

Male attention.....

When I rolled up the character, I dismissed that men would look at me twice. I'm a chubby girl in armour, it sits better on me than most skinny girls because of my bulky frame, but I felt comfortable, rolling around in the mud, and picking leaves out of my hair and sitting red and sweaty because, I never figured men would look at me twice.

But they have. Quite a few has made approaches to my little knight girl. Some right sexist "for two silver will you service my squire", oh I had fun challenging and beating that one up. Or "So you're a knight, are you a virgin? Did you swear vows? Want to come back to my tent for some knobbing?" and some creepy Elf: "You have nice wide hips and shoulders, you could carry many younglings, was I a younger man, I would rape and mate with you", and some rather romantic. "Milady, this road is slippery, allow me to take your hand and escort you. Don't think me too foreward to tell you, I find you beautiful." .... ......

It should make me feel flattered and happy, but it instead makes me feel embarrassed, self-conscious, awkward. I don't feel attractive, I didn't make this character to be attractive. And I need to boost my self image.

So there, a confession of a UK lrper who wants to loose weight.

Definitely Lady Hawkeye, Yumi Komigata from Rurouni Kenshin, and Maleficient. I love all three characters enough that I'm willing to lose the weight for them. Yumi was one of my first favorites, as was Maleficient. I blame Lady Hawkeye solely on Jeremy Renner, that cute as crud man.

This year my group is doing both Alice in the Country of Hearts and FLCL and maybe even Pokemon--we're still undecided on that one. For the Alice cosplay I get to be a cute little Tea Mouse named Pierce. Only problem? He's a thin, flat, MALE, character--while I am quite the....Curvaceous...female cosplayer. I'm running into the same problem with my FLCL costume--Canti, the robot. I have great plans for these costumes and I'm hoping that having them as my motivation will keep me on track.

P.s.: I am so excited that Sparkpeople has a Cosplay forum! It makes a great site just that much more awesome.

One costume that I would never wear publicly but would love to try on when I'm slimmer is Fay Valentine from Cowboy Bebop. Unless you're "Man Fay" you need to have a good body to pull those tight shorts off.

Any ideas? I don't know yet, but it will be something awesomely amazing. Something popular, but not done very often, something I will need to be in great shape to pull off well. My current favorites along manga is: Beet the Vandel Buster (did Bluezam, poorly), FMA (did Armstrong, poorly), Durarara!!! (Anime version), Air Gear, Gimmick!, M.A.R., xxxHolic, Bakuman, Hunter x Hunter, Black Cat, Buso Renkin, and +Anima. The ones I am up to date on are: Bakuman, Hunter x Hunter, Air Gear (as far as I know), FMA, Beet (unfinished manga... one of my favorites regardless), M.A.R., xxxHolic (I believe, not 100% sure, I have up to 12), Black Cat, Buso Renkin. The ones I am not up to date on are: Durarara!!!, +Anima, and Gimmick!.
I would like to do something that even the craftsmansip of it will be amazing, but nothing I could not pull off.

I have a long way to go, but having these in mind keeps me motivated!

To be honest, it's more motivating thinking about what I will look like when I get the right body to do the cosplay than it is to be able to accurately do it.

I want to do a Horo from Spice and Wolf, I saw a very gorgeous lady do the fur bikni at JFAX(Michigan) once and fell in love with the idea.

A more embarrassing cosplay that I've always wanted to do would be an Orion slave girl from Star Trek. Ah to be green, scantily clad, and feel sexy

Catchyseachild, if I ever get around to doing amulet heart, I already have a pink wig from doing amulet spade. It's not styled though, I'm kind of lazy about that and sometimes forgo wigs entirely.

Unfortunately, my hair is naturally a pretty dark brown, so I'd have to bleach it and I have no intention of doing it. I have a variety of cheap wigs from previous costumes. The one in my profile picture I spray-colored myself, to get one closer to the pretear/himeno hair color

I'm on the "Eat as much as possible and still lose weight" diet. It's working.

There are so many costumes I want to find myself wearing sometime soon, but I think the one that motivates me the most is Envy from Fullmetal Alchemist. There are pretty obvious reasons. xD Envy is super muscular and he shows a lot of skin. x3

Otherwise, I was hoping to 're-form' myself a bit for my cosplay of Zero from Vampire Knight. The characters in that series are fairly stylized but I want to pull off a more lean, masculine figure for crossplaying. Especially for Zero since he has long slender legs and wide, muscular shoulders. x3 Call me an accuracy obsessor. Being female I'm 'blessed' with naturally wide hips, so... oO I find myself quite awkward at times.

Anyway, this is my spill.. =) Hello to all, I'm also new here.

Sue from Clover has been my great motivator. I also have a picture of Battle Angel posted over my monitor as a 'maybe someday' thing.

When I crossplayed, to flatten my chest I would wear an old tank top, lay down, and run duct tape around my chest (it's easier if someone helps you). Bring scissors to cut the duct tape away when you're finished. It usually comes free of the shirt easily, but in case it doesn't... bring an extra shirt.

I have some crossplays in mind to motivate me, including kid Simon from Gurren Lagann and Usa-chan from Our Alliance manga (an informational manga produced by the US government which is surprisingly adorable). Either way, gotta lose some hip if I want to look like a little boy.

My cute little Yuki costume from Vampire knight. I would love to cosplay Ritsuka (loveless), but to effectively look like a 12 yr old boy, I'd have to be a pretty hardcore dieter, and I don't think that's going to happen any time soon,..

but when I eventually cosplay, I'll post my awesome cosplaying photos here!!!emoticon
