I'm not exactly losing weight or getting in shape for cosplay purposes. Cosplay is sort of like the chance I have to show it off because I usually wear jeans and t-shirts.
Once I reach 130 or so I'm doing Episode III Shion from Xenosaga. Although I expect this to take time, so I'm planning fitted costumes that are less revealing in the meantime. That will sort of be my "HEY GAIS, REMEMBER ME?" costume.
I'm about halfway there now, although the holidays set me back just a little bit.
