Aika S. Granzchesta, summer uniform, short-haired version

Why? -- I love the ARIA series. It's so heart-warming and beautiful, and out of all the characters, Aika and her mentor Akira were my favourite characters because they felt the most real to me. However, it's pretty rare to see ARIA cosplays, so I've decided I'd like to cosplay Aika. It's not a particularly revealing outfit, but it is form-fitting and, well, white just isn't slimming like black is =/

What I'm Doing to Get in Shape -- I've only just started, really >_< But, I've begun logging everything that I'm eating and drinking and am aiming to eat a bit less (I give in to cravings far too easily) and eat healthier. I also aim to hit the gym more often, although I go a little less because of my work (I wanted to go today but it's my only day off between shifts and I did enough running around yesterday to count for a work out, I think!)

Itsuki from Sengoku BASARA!!

Gotta loose that tummy!!

Right now I'm trying to go to the gym every night for at least two hours. I'm doing as much cardio as I can (seeing I can't lift weights) -- and attempting to cut out any bad food! Granted I give myself a free day every Saturday as a reward to eat all the yummy sweets I want!

One of the next cosplays I have in mind is one I had so much fun with already! I wore it in 2010, and I'd definitely love to re-wear it again looking more fabulous~!

It's Grell~ from Kuroshitsuji!

Beware Sebastians at Anime North(Toronto), mwhahaha~

Definitely would love to do an old-school Sailor Moon cosplay as well. Show-off my long legs! :P
Vegeta, whats the scouter say about his power level?

I am doing Fi from Zelda Skyward Sword. My husband wanted to do Link and when I was watching him play I felt I had to do Fi. She has such cool and complicated costume. (still doing research on how to do her mask and hair.)

I have joined weight watchers, and starting to move more. I have been doing yoga, cardio ball, walking, belly dancing, WII fit, even some DDR. I will doing nearly anything so I don't get bored. If I get bored I don't work out I noticed. I have even started to bounce on my cardio ball while playing video games.

I have just motivated myself and have told myself the only person it hurts if I don't work out and eat right is me. Honestly my husband didn't mind me gaining weight since my chest gets bigger in the process. (silly boys)

Suki, in her Fire Nation garb, from Avatar the Last Airbender. I need to tone a bit, especially my stomach. Can't be a warrior without muscle.

Trying to adjust my diet and my weight lifting routine. I think the only issue I need to deal with right now is getting my tummy more toned. I don't want to feel like I have to constantly suck in my stomach for a photo or have my tummy hanging out when I do poses.

Menma? I wanna see that! One of my favorite anime ever!

I'm getting in shape for Black Widow, from a bunch of marvel comics. That skintight catsuit is quite intimidating, and while I am content with my build right now, I'd like to lose about 10 pounds at least so that I look better in the catsuit, you know? So far I've been doing aerobics, and I'm walking/running every day (I'm working my way up to just running). I'd like to start doing more soon, but I don't think I'm quite in shape for that yet! Dieting has been the hardest part for me honestly, and I've not been able to keep it up for more than two days without giving up to a jar of nutella or something. I'm not gonna quit yet, though! And luckily I have a couple months before I debut her xD


I love looking at everyone else's goals and attitudes, it's really quite motivating. :3

Black Panther aka T'Challa. Trying to bulk up for it. Been doing good too, would be much better if I kept in mind that you're supposed to rest at least two to three days out of the week.

If your workout consistently makes your abs feel ridiculously sore the next morning, I think you'll be fine . If it doesn't now, crank it up a notch or two until it does! Gambatte!

Meiko from Vocaloid. I'm not trying to lose too much weight because I'm pretty slim already, but I really want to get that flat/toned stomach.
