(talking about thighs rubbing together) Wouldn't that be awesome? You don't notice until it's too late. . .

I'm not exactly losing weight or getting in shape for cosplay purposes. Cosplay is sort of like the chance I have to show it off because I usually wear jeans and t-shirts.

Once I reach 130 or so I'm doing Episode III Shion from Xenosaga. Although I expect this to take time, so I'm planning fitted costumes that are less revealing in the meantime. That will sort of be my "HEY GAIS, REMEMBER ME?" costume. I'm about halfway there now, although the holidays set me back just a little bit.
herp to the derp.

I'm just trying to get better looking in general but I won't even really get beyond the planning stages/prop construction for my Spider-Girl or any of my Super Sentai costumes until I look good in spandex/lycra/something more form-fitting than a tent. I'm 5'7.5" and 208 which I swear is all in my stomach and thighs. I've got an uphill climb.

I need to get in shape in general, but my main reason is for the cosplay I'm doing of Vincent Valentine from Final Fantasy VII Dirge of Cerberus. The catch is its a female version with a "sexy" outfit. And let's just say I'm faaaar from anything remotely cute. I have a long way to go, and I don't have a clue how to get there. Which totally sucks. But I'm trying. I have until June 3 of 2011 to get there. Which is a fair amount of time to get into decent shape. But I'm scared I won't be able to look good enough, and this is one I definetly need to do justice to.

Think this, but girly, with a skirt and revealing top and what not. x.x [photos in my gallery]

There are three costumes I'm trying to get in shape for.

The first one being Chloe Valens form Tales of Legendia: (Such a powerful character, I love her design, but i want to look good in spandex.)

Gwendolyn from Odin Sphere: (Had already made this before, but the dress burmed in my housefire)

And Litchi Faye-Ling from Blaz Blue: (My friends have started calling me "Boobie Lady")

Main target areas: Stomach, thighs, and upper arms.

Plan: Cardio, cardio, more cardio, squats, lunges, and the like. I've completely cut out all soda and artificial juices as well as fried foods. My sister has started walking with me, we plan on walking 4-5 mornings a week, at 2-3 miles a session. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday evening we do a half hour circuit of lunges, pushups, jump rope, and squats. Hand weights are an amazing investment, especially for walking.

My goal: Lose 4 dress sizes (I want to be a size 8-9) and firm up my arms. I just really want to be a lot healthier than I am right now. Over the past year I have let myself go due to stress, and I'm sick of not loving what I see in the mirror.

For two cosplays, really.
Cloud Strife - despite how he's often drawn in fanart in manga, he was in the military. He DOES have at *least* definition, you can see that even in his Crisis Core self:

Sebastian Michaelis - one hell of a butler. For me to cosplay a character that's currently so popular, I want to do it [strike]great[/strike] justice. I'd love to do fanservice-y sexy poses knowing I actually look sexy. =x *camwhore when provoked*

Aiming for Acen, I wonder how much I can lose by then? At least I have a few months.
And then there's Youmacon. =D
Con Photos:
Ohayocon11 - coming soon

Planned Cosplays for Acen/Youma
(possibly) Bard - Fri only
Sebastian Michaelis (& rave ver. Sat night)

Sailor Moon. I'm not overweight, but I feel too self conscious to wear a leotard just yet. So in the mean time, I'm going to make Rin's Adolescence dress since it's simple and my hair is passable.
Mami Tomoe (Puella Magi Madoka Magica) - 50% complete
Queen Elsa (Frozen) - 50%
Elphaba [Emerald City inspired dress] (Wicked) - 100%
Gryffindor and proud!!!
