Thanks for posting this. I'm recovering from an eating disorder myself, so this was really great to hear another person trying to work through these issues and rock a cosplay
I recently came across my first semi-cosplay that I made in college when I was still very sick mentally and about 40lbs thinner. It was really hard to not be able to wear it because I put so much time and love into it, even though it probably looks terrible to all you people with amazing sewing skills, when I sewed mine by hand and it's pinned together in places and all the hems are fraying. But I love it, and wish I could still wear it, and it's hard to try and move on from that place mentally and feel confident as I am now.
So thanks for making me feel less alone in this.
