What I Love About My Body and Cosplay

Hi guys!

So, I've seen a lot of threads about stuff like lamenting our excess belly fat, lack of triceps, etc., but how about we show some love for what we do like about our bodies when we cosplay? I'll bet everyone's got something. Of course fitness is important and we should continue working out to get in shape for those cosplays, but let's celebrate the good stuff too

I'll start: I love my ARMS. I don't lift weights much, but they are naturally strong and toned. Perfect for when I cosplay Korra

I don't like a thing; lol. As soon as I get comfortable, I start to slack. Always have a new goal, always striving for the next step. Only way I stay on my game.

and haven't cosplayed yet, but would like to cosplay as Wamuu or Kars from Jojo's Biazarre Adventure, but still needs work before I could do either character justice, lol.

I love the way my arms look. They are so strong and fit. Its a huge improvement from just a few months ago. I also love the way my stomach is starting to look. Yesterday while I was doing my squats I could easily see a six pack through my shirt.

I am also starting to love the way my butt is shaping. Basically I am the happiest I have been with my body in years!

Squats are like a wonder-movement. Of course they strengthen your legs and shape your butt, but there are so many side-benefits that come along with doing them, it's amazing. I'm slowly getting my wife into doing squats, right now just using exercise bands, but we are working her up to full gym style squats soon.

I love my waist. I'm very happy with 27 inches. I also love my curves, even if they're hard to fit sometimes. I also like that I look 15 instead of 19, since I can cosplay all the school girls I want. XD

I love my legs, so I'm perfectly comfortable showing them off.
But with the way things are moving with Insanity, I'm starting to love my core for the first time in 19 years. Ariel might actually happen after all!

I like my stomach. I might not have a six pack or anything but I love that it's strong and mostly flat no matter what I do. ^.^

Vegetto from Fairy?

Also, I like my traps and shoulders, but who doesn't?

Lol haven't gone by that name in many years; at least since they merged servers, which was what 2008 or 2009?

This will sound odd as no one said this. But you see some charter you need a chest to fill out the Coplay. Well finally my cursed Bust has come in handy for something, now only if I was taller.
