Trying hard to improve my Hwoarang cosplay


What I'm doing:

about an hour of b-ball each time I'm able
Reps of 15 lb weights (note that I'm under 16)
Bicycle sit ups about 50 each time
Calf Raises- Reps until they burn

Every once a week

What I plan to do:
turn every week into everyday =))))

Seras Victoria. Pretty much have most of her proportions down, especially in the *ahem* upper chest area. Just need to shed about 3 to 4 inches off the waist.

Costumes for 2013:

Ritsuka Aoyagi and Ciel Phantomhive.
While I have the height done, they both are rather dainty, thin shota boys and I'm...While able to pass as a shota, I'm a bit chubby.
But mostly for Ritsuka, since his sides show in the outfit I wish to use, I want to be able to cosplay that without feeling self-conscience and for myself as well.
Right now, since I don't have a gym near by, I'm doing four sets of twenty crunches, or two sets of forty and taking weight loss shots as well as drinking appetite shakes, and as soon as the snow melts down enough to actually maneuver through it, I'm going back to taking at least an hour walk a day.

I have a fascination with guys who wear sleeveless shirts. Those guys also tend to have exposed midriffs. Right now I'm going for Judal, but after that I'll probably end up with Albel Nox (SO3) as well. Trying not to look too far into the future.

I have the opposite problem of most people. I'm trying to be less stick-skinny.

I'm a total wimp, but I'l love to cosplay Kazuo Kiriyama from Battle Royale:

He's the one on the right with the gun. He not necessarily "ripped" but I'd like to gain some muscle before stepping out in this cosplay. Wish me luck!

Definitely Burt Ward's Robin:

I've already started making the costume, but he just wears so little! I'm curvy as hell, so my weight goes straight to my thighs, which is inconvenient for this cosplay.

Crying Beauty, Metal Gear Solid 4.

Tsukasa Hiiragi, Lucky Star.

I'm a bit over 200 pounds, so this is going to take a LOT of hard work.

I want to cosplay as Dante, from the DmC reboot:

It'll be hard though, because I need to go from 231 lb to something around 151~154. However, I'm extremely motivated and I think that I'll be able to achieve his physique:

There are many other characters that I would love to cosplay, but I couldn't do because of my weight, as they are shirtless or show some skin (arms, abs etc.). But Dante is my ultimate goal. I even created a blog, I Wanna be Dante, where I'll keep record of my progress and talk about pursuing a healthier life.

2013 is the year where everything changes for me! It's time to act! I can make it! We can make it!

Trying to slim down for 3 cosplays due in end of March! Gained a bit of weight over the holiday break! And these are the three characters I'm looking to slim down for! Hoping to lose 10-15 lbs :X

My method is to lay off soda, chips (and you know, the junk food). Drink lots of water. Eat smaller portions and healthier food (wheat over white, etc). And work out an hour a day (pilates, aerobics and the such) -o-; hope to stick by it! Just starting this month SO I got a little less than 3 months to do this!

Ivy from Soul Calibur, not much is covered and what is - is skin tight. I'm 140-145 lbs now, so I'm not sure how much I'll need to lose, it's going to mainly be toning up, but we'll see how it goes! Gym membership and aerobics classes here I come - hoohah!
