Also, is it bad if I want to have a relationship with the character I cosplay as? /scuttles away
that douche bag!?D : jkjk
I really like what happens to Gary actually...i always liked him : >

I know what you mean about the thigh thing, my hip measurement is over a foot larger then my waist FUUUU- And I'm really self cautious about them. But I wanted to cosplay Stocking. Who wears a mini skirt, I didn't look particularly good in that mini skirt, but I had lot's of fun and people were really nice, I even got compliments.

Haters gonna hate, but that shouldn't stop you

Stocking wears much more 'covering' alternate costumes...as long as you wear lolita fashion with Stockings Wig whose gonna know the difference? mwahaha~

Oh I wanted to specifically cosplay her Angel form xD Which is especially unflattering, but I like wearing pretty dresses...even if they don't look pretty on me XD

Most of my favorite characters are female, but I just don't look feminine enough to pull off 99% of MtF crossplays.

And the 1% is just a jump from "no way I can do it" to "you can just pretend to be cosplaying her spear counterpart".

Stocking wears a pink outfit in an episode, it's adorable, I believe, it's when she dates that ghost. It covers nicely and it looks just as pretty as her angel outfit

Er yes, I'm aware of her other outfits. But I needed a costume that would double as a party dress, I also can not sew and needed something pre made, not enough time to commission something. I picked it because of the design, not because of the character, I only later discovered how short it is xD

Yes, currently all my cosplays are crossplays (unless you call Grell a girl, which I do sometimes XD), as I do not look flattering in a skirt (I wanted to cosplay Alois once, but me + booty shorts = XD)

Gary is the ultimate douche, it's why I like him. Only 10 and such a badass 8D

I'm pretty sure I'll go for them later on when I've got more confidence but for now, I don't even have the urge to cosplay any other characters. So it's not really an issue at the moment, although it was what stopped me cosplaying a female in the first place :x I was gonna do Hatsune Miku instead of Honey but yep, that fell through. All in good time though!

Oh god, this. My waist is really skinny compared to my chest and hips >_>
You make an awesome Stocking though! *_*

Haters don't bother me as much as they used to... then again, I used to think that for every one compliment you'd get at a con, you'd get about 5 trash talkers. I was very swiftly proven wrong, haha.

I suspect it's only unflattering in your mind's eye... the picture you posted that I saw looked wonderful, all I would have thought was "Cute!" and nothing negative at all. Oh yah, and that I wish my legs were that thin...!

I completely agree with nannyogg, doxie.
You look super cute as Stocking, and I could only wish to have thin legs like you!

I saw your stocking before, and you make a really cute one, and her dress is suitable for a party.

Now, I could never pull off stockings, however one of my friends, he said I would be a good panty... But only in her angel out fit.... Hhmmmmm
