Cosplay is motivation for me more because I don't really like to take pictures of myself, except in cosplay. So I see progress, or lack thereof, in my cosplay pics. I look a lot better as Goku when I am smaller, even with the outfit I made for when I was bigger.
Of course, there is motivation in that I want to look as awesome as possible at cons and not be self-conscious.
