Do you feel insecure about your body??! Do you want to slim down, tone up, or simply stay in shape??! We all want to feel fit and sexy in our cosplays (my main reason for working out! :D) but it's super hard to do it alone!! I know this!! So..I'm not sure if this will actually become popular but..I've decided to start my own Fitness Vlog on YouTube that will be targeted to all my fellow cosplayers 8'D And I'll be doing it in none other than my favorite Yoko cosplay ^__^

I'm am in no way a professional at dieting or working out, but I know that both are SO difficult when you're doing it alone and you don't have time for research!

My Cosplay Fitness Vlog will be a helping hand to all others out there who want to get/stay in shape and don't have the support they need! It will be full of my research on different diet plans, workout tutorials and simple OPTIMISM!!

I know how HARD getting in shape is, SO LETS DO THIS TOGETHER >8D I appreciate all comments, tips, and feedback!! Check it out guys ^__^

I see the Tampa convention center in there.

And personally, I think this is an awesome idea! I know that all of my friends are either super sexy on their own or are confident enough in themselves to not kill themselves on a diet and exercise program, so I do feel really alone in trying to work out and lose weight. ^^;; It's hella hard to keep on track when you feel like you're the only one.

Good job!! Most of those pics are from Metrocon which was at the Tampa convention center xD hahaa!!

And yessss I know exactly what you mean!! It's like my friends don't even have to try at all and they look amazing @_@ As well as my sisters (who don't cosplay), but one was born naturally skinny as crap, and the other has an eating disorder..so I always feel insecure around them..but this is what has fueled me to reach out to everyone else who feels like they're alone ;D

I do hope you'll join me in my vlogs<3

I wish I could cosplay as Yoko.. but I got streatch marks on my hips..and it wasn't even my fault! I didn't really gain weight it was more I was a stick in middle school and all of a sudden I got hips and I wasn't a stick anymore. I'm in college and my stretch marks are still there.

I'm looking forward to following your vlog project! C:

I've been working on slimming down for a couple years now (with good results. I went from juniors pant size 11 to 7 in about 6 months!), but now I'm working on toning up for my Yoko cosplay this spring in Seattle. Hopefully this vlog will help motivate me to work even harder! C:

@dark angel; I have them, too, though they don't stand out very much. I'd suggest getting a cream or a lotion that reduces stretch marks, the kind that's recommended for pregnant women to use. It's good stuff. C:

I'm gonna be a Silent Hill nurse for Halloween and i was totally dreading it cause I thought I would look terrible but i actually look really freakin awesome. But... I really wanna cosplay Yoko and Maka but they're both so thin and Maka is flatchested and I'm pretty well endowed. I always ask my boyfriend if I would look good cosplaying as this or that and he always says yes but sometimes I'm not convinced....
Also, I WOULD FREAKING LOVE TO DO A SAIYUKI COSPLAY!!!! I REALLY REALLY REALLY WANNA BE GOKU!

Honestly, diet is going to be the hardest part for me since I'm living at home for a year. I lost so much weight last year without really changing anything just because I could eat on my own schedule instead of having to eat when the family does.

Thanks.. Yoko is like my dream cosplay! I really want to be able to cosplay as her, but I am waiting for either my stretch marks to fade or for me to get enough money to get laser surgery to get them (mostly) removed.

Ohhh I see!! Well don't give up hun ;] You'll definitely be able to cosplay her!! I have super bad spider veins on my legs that look completely horrible, but I just try to ignore them and have fun with the cosplay anyways, and it works! ^___^

I have been using some kind of cream my doctor gave me for a few months now. Most of them have faded slightly, but are still a red-ish color, but a few have turned white-ish and I can barely see them.

This thread got me inspired again to do a Yoko cosplay. I am not overweight, but I want to get a little toned up, get rid of some tummy pudge and reduce the appearance of my stretch marks. I think I may set my goal for next may so I can cosplay as her at Anime Central.

Thanks. C: The slimming down is easy compared to keeping my body that way, especially with other obligations and commitments on top of it. xD I look forward to your vlog! C;

@darkangel; good! C: I can't wait to see your Yoko cosplay~~ ;D

I'm gonna be a Silent Hill nurse for Halloween and i was totally dreading it cause I thought I would look terrible but i actually look really freakin awesome. But... I really wanna cosplay Yoko and Maka but they're both so thin and Maka is flatchested and I'm pretty well endowed. I always ask my boyfriend if I would look good cosplaying as this or that and he always says yes but sometimes I'm not convinced....
Also, I WOULD FREAKING LOVE TO DO A SAIYUKI COSPLAY!!!! I REALLY REALLY REALLY WANNA BE GOKU!

Uhm... bump?

Hey sorry I was trying to reply to everyone asap xDD

OMG I'm sure you could pull ALL of those off!!! Yoko is NOT flat-chested, so you should have a fun time cosplaying her!! 8'D And hopefully we (along with my vlogs) can help convince you that you CAN do it!! >8D


OMG SAIYUKI!!!! <333 If you do end up cosplaying Goku PLEASE send pics! 8D (He's my FAVORITE character and I love seeing cosplays of him x3)
