Full photo set available on my Patreon now, prints will be mailed out this week!
I want to take a moment and talk about a few important things; body positivity, and how it relates to cosplay. I’m going to be real for a minute, this photoshoot was the hardest I’ve ever done. I was constantly afraid of judgement, not just from others but mainly myself. I’ve struggled for many years going back and forth from too thin to overweight, so the idea of putting on something this revealing honestly scared me to death. However, I wanted to send a message with this shoot. I chose Pyrrha because I feel she is the character most like myself. I recently created an armor version of her because I wanted to display how I saw her as a warrior; fierce and strong. Once that was completed I felt like there was something missing. I’ve been cosplaying as Pyrrha for 2 years now and I’ve done so many (probably too many) versions of her, but never one that showed off her sublime feminine design. To make a long story short, I made my decision, put on the outfit, and that was that. Once I finished editing my photos (Simple color adjustments, as seen above) I felt more confident that I ever had in a costume. The point I’m trying to make is that you should not be afraid to cosplay as something because of your body type. Cosplay is about having fun and no one should fear persecution because of their size, big or small. I really hope you enjoy this photoset, I put a lot of my heart into it.
