Aspirations to become a cosplay model~

So, I've been wanting to become a cosplay model for some time now. I'm not in the worst of shape, but not the nest either. I've lost a couple of pounds in the last few weeks and I've been exercising more. I'm hoping I can become physically fit by Youmacon to be ready for photo shoots and the like! Any support would be awesome! I think I might post updates here.

Thank you so much! I didn't lose any weight this week but I didn't gain any either. I suppose I'm more concerned with getting into shape than losing weight really =)

What exactly is a cosplay model? Do you want to work for a company that sells costumes or do you want to be a representative like Pikmin Link? I wish you the best of luck either way.

Thanks. I guess it would be a hobby more or less, modeling for photo shoots and what not. I highly doubt I would really have the time to do it as a career. If it were to turn into something like that, it might be cool.

Oh well then that is very easy. If you go up to photographers and ask for some pictures they will usually be more than happy to take them (most of the time) Also joint he forums for the cons you are going to and photographers typically post threads about wanting to do a photo shoot at cons about a month or so before and you can schedule with them. If you have a local con you can also post a topic on the forums asking for photographers in the area. We have one in Portland that does a photo shoot with us every month. Its really about just meeting photographers and building a reputation. Be sure to be nice to them and make sure you ask permission before using any of their pictures, credit them when you do, offer to pay them even if they don't require it. Basically you want them to talk to their photographer friends and say _______ is a fantastic model, she is really polite and what not.

Go for your dreams! If you think you've got what it takes and you have the determination, go for it.
