Strictly speaking, I think it depends on how chubby you mean. I mean I'm not stick-thin, but whilst that won't stop me from cosplaying, it would stop me from dressing as someone like Kamina from TTGL or anyone from Gundam Seed who by definition have to be quite gaunt.

On the other hand, whilst I don't mean this in a misogynist way, I am male and straight - and women that are a bit curvy are more my type than those who are really thin - so speaking from a totally selfish perspective, I love to see a slightly chubbier Yoko or Felicia, not just because of their body type but their confidence in doing so speaks volumes about their character. So A.

Would you rather, when having only one cosplay with you:
A) Have your cosplay crumpled up on the way to the convention and not have access to any form or iron.
B) Spill something on your costume in the middle of the convention and walk around in it for the rest of the day?
I would say A, because most cons have on-site accommodation and I'm quite a gregarious person and would doubtless meet someone with an iron just after getting there.

Here's mine. Would you...

A: Have to risk being caught in the rain on an overcast day
B: Be potentially boiling on a day during a heatwave
