If you're the person I'm thinkin of, congrats on the panel being accepted~! I def plan on attending. :3

My main problem with being a plus-sized cosplayer is patterns. I'm just getting into wardrobe making (plushie work=/=a complete outfit ._.) so I have to purchase patterns. I got a pattern last year for a size 18 dress. My grandmother and I spent a hot minute on it, but because I live in the city and she doesn't, we couldn't do constant fittings. Anyways, the day I needed the dress, I tried it on and instead of an 18, it was more like an 8. To this day, I have no idea why a pattern so small was labeled as plus size. ><

Blackusagi: Thank you so much! ^.^ my favorite one is Rini though I think.. or Inuyasha.. Inuyasha is a lot of fun to cosplay especially when I get his pose down.

Oh! you guys have any suggestions about what I should go over in the plus sized cosplay panel? My friend is doing the costume wise, and I am doing the emotional/what to help hide things..

StrawberryNinja: Yes I am on the Acen forums as Inuyasha_kun as well! and so yes that is me! I am doing the plus sized cosplay panel! And thanks! it was a long ride to get approved!

@ sukishoislove thats great to hear I'm doing a tsubasa version of sakura ^.^ I need a wig but i havent found the right one yet.
Hahaha I fell in love with Hikari's Starlight trio...in fact I thought all of them were hot (I have a thing for girls dressing like guys and guys who look feminine it's wierd) and most of all Kasahara's TigersEye and Chaos. I love watching the "senshuuraku" they are hilarious.

I'm plus sized too. I'm glad to have this thread. ^_^ Currently I'm cosplaying/working on these characters:
Kotone/Lyra from Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver
Dead Master from Black Rock Shooter
and Female!Mario.

It's good to see other plus sized cosplayers. ^_^
