Libertina

lol, the satired "Libertina" - basically a female version of Altair.


Speaking of which, can anybody do Assassin's Creed cosplay costumes? I would pay for a commission. Both Altair and Ezio. Thanks

Kamina, if I can successfully carb cycle for the next two months. I've got the body for it, need to shread.

After some consideration (okay, mostly impulse... but I've been wanting to do this character for a long time!), I've decided to add this to my roster:


I'm going to tone up towards the modern, lean rendition of She-Hulk, because the bulkier She-Hulk is just TOO. MUCH. for me, will look really odd with my body proportions (and my height - I'm like, 5'2''), and will disrupt my other planned cosplays. Am I trying to kill myself? Potentially, yes.

Also, these chicas:



And then there's the matter of the Mystery Costume, which I have yet to fully decide upon. She-Hulk is going to be the most challenging... the combination of such a trim waist with such defined arms is going to be a pain. Ling and Blondie are already in the bag, as that's pretty much my physique now. And Joystick will be done when She-Hulk is. Time to get hustlin'!

this might be a good idea if your going to do that



it's an appitite INCREASER

friend use it and swears by it. Although honestly looking at your pictures it'd probably be closer to a 2 year goal than a 1 year unless you go the route of pro-hormones >_<

Regardless if your looking to bulk up much as possible look up Scott Herman on youtube, he's not that big but generally his routine and mine are almost identical. The guys at my gym are noticing my arms especially are getting huge after I started doing drop set / circuit training incorporated.

Minimal rest (no longer than 30 seconds) and keep dropping the weights to keep up with the number of reps.

Another thing I do is do super slows, which takes 3-5 second motion one direction and 3-5 seconds in reverse. So 3-5 second benchpress push, and 3-5 second drop, then once I get tired I use explosive power and rep out the rest fast as possible.

When I started working out I could do 135 lb bench less than year ago 5 times, now I'm upto x30+ without stopping and max bench upto 255 @ 165 body weight. (that also included a 6month break -damn vacation....)

Although the hardest thing is to do drop sets with dumbbells if your gym is busy >_<

But above all most important things to take is

1.Multi-Vitamins Life force multi's are good and cheap (MUCH better than GNC stuff)
2. Glucosamine + MSM for joint support cause your muscles grow but your joints need to strengthen as well.
3. Calcium and magnesium shouldn't be too much of a problem if your drinking milk or taking protein shakes as most popular one Whey and Casein are both rich in calcium.
4. Fish oil is not only good for the heart brain it's also good for your joints as well.
5. Drink TONS of water, I go through a 1.5 gallon a day (I go so much I started making use of bushes outside lol, feel bad about wasting water to flush XD)
6. Eat clean calories, I know a large pizza sounds nice but if you can't don't rely on stuff loaded with trans fats to get you through (processed foods)


Other things I recommend but not required is arginine for better pumps and circulation during a workout which also helps your body create more nitric oxide which is great cause it's also good for the libido and sexual sensitivity

then Beta alanine personally I love the side effects which feels like static electricity running through my body which has proven to increase heart health by about 3% after 2 months of regular use.

Both you can get from a good pre-workout supplement. White Flood is probably the best, it gives you great focus and energy prior to entering the gym, it's like drinking 3 redbulls then hitting the gym. It'll also help you from getting lazy, cause once I drink it no matter how tired I am I'm out the door in 30minutes.

It is strange to think, I haven't seen you since a month. I have seen the new moon, but not you. I have seen sunsets and sunrises, but nothing of your beautiful face. The pieces of my broken heart are so small that they could be passed through the eye of a needle. I miss you like the sun misses the flower; like the sun misses the flower in the depths of winter. Instead of beauty to direct its light to, the heart hardens like the frozen world your absence has banished me to.

Ciel Phantomhive:

(the boy in the chair)

I've cosplayed as the butler next to him before, and that wasn't as bad because I was practically all covered up. However with Ciel, my legs are on show quite a bit.
The thing is, my weight goes up and down like a yo-yo. But not my "shape" - so I've decided to stop drinking soda and (too many) sweets (which will also help my skin) and start little, for example going running, pilates etc.

Ehmmm... well, for me, it's Milk from Dragon Ball:

And the problem is my legs x.x; I've always had chicken legs, though right now they're not that chicken anymore, since I've been exercising and stuff *_*
What I do is, since I have a dance group, I practice the dances every day, and now on top of that, I'm going up the stairs on tiptoes (though I haven't done that much yet). I don't go to the gym because I don't really have time or money, and also, I hate the gym x.x; so I just exercise like that in my house and it has been working so far *_*

@distantarray: Haha, I know what you mean about peeing excessively. I drink so much water and that's the part I hate - just having to pee all the time. It gets kind of annoying! XD
