Overweight cosplayers?

I have been mentioning to a few of my friends that cosplay and go to cons that I plan on going to one in the near future and all of them have told me I shouldnt go until I get skinny (xD Im 5'4" and weigh 190 pounds) I was wondering if this is true?
The last thing I want to do is show up and be yelled at for being large I have enough self esteem issues as it is
any feed back would be helpful

Theres quiite a few threads like this.

no no no no no no no no no no no no no!

do NOT listen to that! if you want to cosplay then do so and dont let little issues like Wight bring you down. i mean im 5'0-5'1" and i Weight about 115 and even though that's not the most for my tiny little body structure all the fat in my body acumulates in my stomach. i cosplay either way. I also have the crappyest self esteme ever and i will not let anyone tell me i cant cosplay just becuase i am shaped like i am and you shouldnt either. -Aseret Yuna

Lies! All of it! XD

By no means should you let anyone tell you that you shouldn't cosplay or attend cons because of your weight! You're relatively close to me as far as weight goes, but I weigh a little less. I know of a LOT of people who are gorgeous cosplayers who are bigger. So don't let that stop you at all!

WHAT IN THE WORLD!!!!!!! Who cares if you're not skinny?!!!! I'm not skinny myself! If you want to cosplay and go to cons, then go for it! I can't believe someone would tell you not to go to a convention unless you lost weight -_- To me, that's really hurtful. I'd rather be a bit plus-sized than skinny anyway. It gives me more shape muhahahahaha, so anyway the bottom line is, GO TO CONVENTIONS IF YOU WANT TO! NO ONE CAN STOP YOU! OKAY?

i don't know why your friend should tell you not to. really cosplay is all about fun. lots of people cosplay regardless of age, height, gender, ect... why should weight be an issue?

Totally not true. Many of my friends (and myself included) are plus-sized, and we all cosplay.

However, as plus-size people, we face more challenges making our costumes look good and suit our body. Think about the costume and think about what works with the shape you are, and make adjustments. It's not a crime, and if you look better in it (even if it's not 100% accurate to a *2D* figure), you'll feel better about it. There are a few threads for the larger-sized figure. Just search the forums a bit, and you'll find them.

EDIT: If they're always saying things like that to you, I hope you tell them how rude that behaviour is, even if you're friends. They should think about what they're doing and how it affects other people. If they don't like your views, and continue to make disparaging comments, as much as it would suck, perhaps it's come time to let the friendships go. We shouldn't surround ourselves with negativity.

Maybe those girls are afraid that you will out do them with your sewing abilities! *gets an idea* I know, you should make an kick @ss costume that's better than theirs and prove to them that you can cosplay just as good, or even better, then they can.
