Not entirely sure yet. I haven't been able to find enough info on any of the girls in particular to see the character's personality that I am the most drawn to... based on sheer cosmetics, I guess I would do a Blondie (even though I'm not exactly a fan of her actress, but alas), because I look the closest to her, but I'm not sure how I feel about the character yet. Need to see more of the movie first and figure it out!

Aside from pulling off Yuna from Final Fantasy X-2 in her various dresspheres and Lightning from FFXIII better, these two are the ones I really want to get in shape for.



Lady Sylvanas Windrunner from World of Warcraft and Squall 'Leon' Leonhart from Kingdom Hearts 2.

Lilith from Darkstalkers!



I'm not really doing anything different. I'm already an active person and I'm in good shape so it's mostly maintaining. I did up my cardio and switch my diet up a bit. I cut out most added sugars ( 'cept for my coffee. Dunno how people drink it without a bit of sugar. bleh), refined carbs, excess sodium and most processed foods in general. I also only drink water, milk, coffee and unsweetened tea. So far so good, and the con's 8 months away. haha. Not gonna take any chances. Lycra thong leotards are not very forgiving! D=

from Soul Calibur for halloween and novemeber convention so i have like 6 weeks to look good
i have been doing sit ups, weights, running and walking as much as i can, eating better
i have been trying to eat better but its hard! I just keep telling myself, HALLOWEEN!!! look better...hehe...
i need to start playing ddr...does it really help????
I used to play DDR ALL the time. My mom and my brother used to tell me that they noticed the difference when I played. I didn't notice a weight change (but, I also wasn't dieting at the time either), but they did notice a difference in my actual appearance. Which is what counts I guess, right? I mean, it's fun, and it's cardio. So it can't hurt. xD


As for me though, I'm cosplaying:


And still debating on cosplaying:


Both of which have a lot of leg. xD I've been slacking on the cardio as of late, which is what I think I need for those cosplays.

As far as diet, I kind of need to work on. I try to eat pretty well, but I lovelove pasta. And fries. And between work and school, there there isn't much time for a good home cooked meal. Thus it comes down to microwave food a lot of time. (Which is kinda how it's always been in my house.) I think I just need to figure out a way to MAKE time for home cooked stuff.

The benefit to working at a place like Panera is that if I ever think I'm not going to get decent food at home, I'll make sure to get something there and bring it home. Because I figure it's [generally] better for me.

But I'm trying to find some better dishes for me with pasta, maybe without a sauce loaded down with stuff I don't need. Or possibly healthier pasta itself. But fries. ...Sometimes I just have to have them, rofl. I just try to eat them less. xD

I've been considering doing a Harley Quinn, actually!

Haha, go for it. I know a few people who've done such a crossplay, and it actually came out really, really nicely, especially if there's a female Joker. Genderswitch fun!

Now, I'm working towards the physiques needed by all the cosplays I have in my signature. I think the Throg will be the thing that I need to work the most towards. I mean, look at the leg exposed!

the hardest part is forcing yourself to eat =P you'll have to be eating atleast 4,000-6,000 calories to start to bulk up that much =o

Instead of beauty to direct its light to, the heart hardens like the frozen world your absence has banished me to.

Chubby chubby



I'm aiming to do this but I do not have the body of a young girl, (just young woman). Since I'm a little on the thicker side, I still need to slim down for it, will do some binding of the chest as well. 5'4" 140lbs now, should get near-there (125 maybe?) by summer of next year for A-kon, that sounds reasonable, or false hope?

Currently I've been doing both running and weight lifting. Healthy eating is a must of course.
