Snow, from FFXIII

While not a superhero-like revealing costume, he does have that whole deep V-neck thing going on. Overall, gaining muscle mass and some bulk will definitely help with the pulling off the whole effect though

After all the cardio training I've been doing for my half-marathon this weekend, "time to switch gears" and start focusing on weights!

Lelouch vi Britannia.

I'm planning to do his zero outfit. Unfortunately I think I'm a little too chubby to do it accurately. So I'm trying to shed some pounds by lessening my calorie intake. I started at 150 lbs last week and am now 148 lbs. I know, not that much. I'm just slowly lessening my food intake so that my body can adjust to it. My goal is to reach about 120 lbs.

Mine would be Alois Trancy and Ciel Phantomhive from Kuroshitsuji, and Rin from Togainu no Chi. I'd just like to be leaner for all of those, since they're crossplays. Also, Kneesocks from Panty and Stocking. I only have 5-10lbs to lose (mainly I just want to be toned/a little muscled), but I'm hoping if I lose that bit of fat, my boobs will get a bit smaller as well and make crossplaying easier xD

Luke fon Fabre, from Tales of the Abyss. The little noble brat has a depressing amount of stomach muscle, and it's all on show too, ugh. I've got eight months to get myself something resembling definition, I'm sure it's possible. d:

Next con: Nekocon

(New-Maybe) Maki Nishikino (Little Devil) - Love Live!

For Anime North next May, I'll be going as Sheik from The Legend Of Zelda (Ocarina of Time)

Body wise, I'm already set, but I could gain a few pound. I currently weigh 100> pounds and my arms are still too skinny for the zentai suit I'm using.

Currently, my main goal is to increase my flexibility. Sheik is pretty much a ninja and is known for doing high kicks and crazy skilled karate moves. I really want to be able to preform some for pictures C:

So, I've been looking online for hamstring stretches and I've been doing them almost everyday. I'm just hoping I can keep it up for the next 7 months. Eep.

~Plan to Cosplay: Hatsune Miku

~So, yeah i pretty much have my work cut out for me but I have a long time to get it done! What I do know in terms of working out or getting in shape is eating healthier, cutting down on sweets, drinking water all the time, and, most importantly, DANCING!!!!!!!!!!!! The first thing I do when I get up in the morning is practice dances I've learned for a good 25 minutes. I actually manged to lose a couple pounds so far by doing it too!
I love what I'm passionate about; I'm passionate about what I love~

I plan to cosplay Yoko from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagan ! ( TT U TT)~

Here is the reference picture ~

I don't really have to loose a lot of weight...mainly what I am trying to do is tone my tummy and do some more ab-centered work outs...
I'm kind of nervous about cosplaying her, but I'm sure I can reach the goal of getting her body type if I keep on working out and don't let myself get lazy.

I need to get in shape for this: Alma

Mostly I need to flatten my stomach a bit and lose some ass and thigh. It's not really about losing weight for me so much as slimming down and toning up a bit. So I'm hoping using the workout mode on my DDR everyday will help out with that. I don't really know what all I should do for my stomach. Crunches? That's about the only stomach exercise I know. Oh, and I also need to cut down my fast food intake.

I should be doing this stuff already anyways since I'm diabetic >.<

It isn't quite that I need to lose any weight, just add some definition.

Even though her costume isn't really that revealing I still need to slim and tone up a bit on my legs and hips. Then probably some on my stomach while I'm at it.

Probably going to do a load of jump roping and ab exercises. I've got about a year to get in shape so I'm not worried.

Okay, Iíll bite, because the more I tell myself itís going to happen, it will. ^_^

While I want to get in shape for all my cosplays, my biggest inspiration (outside of feeling better about myself, of course), is Fran, from FFXII. I already cosplayed her once, and while Iím proud of my first cosplay ever, Iím not so proud of how I looked in it. While I canít change the fact that Iím short, and that my big thighs are genetic and will never disappear completely, I can change how I feel about myself and trim up while doing it. So, at the end of this semester, Iím starting the ďGeneric Protagonist WorkoutĒ. X) Iím dragging in my best friend to join me- not that he really needs it, the skinny bugger! I eat pretty healthy, and my current exercise is working horses (harder than it sounds, let me tell you), which targets weird muscles but not the ones I want toned.
