your body no!


130lbs vs. 230lbs …& this is why I tell people that weight ain’t nothing but a number. Yes, I eat right. Yes I exercise. Sure there are things that are still a work in progress ( like these washboard abs that I KNOW are chilling underneath this gut); however, due to my genes & proportions, you would never tell that there is a whole 100lb difference between these pics. BE YOUR OWN BODY GOALS BABYGIRL✌🏾️

Quick fact. Ready?
Probiotics are living bacteria that exist within your gut. They help to break down food, and ensure a healthy metabolism of proteins, carbs, and fats.

One can get additional probiotics through some fermented vegetables, which help to contribute to one’s gut health.

However, the micro biome that one establishes within the first year after birth are the probiotics that stick around for one’s entire life time. Any other ones that are consumed from food mainly only exist temporarily, for about a week.

I would like an opinion on something. I have always been interested in cosplay, but have yet to do so. I am a "plus size" person and all the characters I want to be are thin. I have heard from several people that someone of my size has no business cosplaying as a thin character. Are they right? Should I give up on my cosplay dreams?

Hello there!

My basic philosophy with cosplay is this: do what you want, as long as you’re comfortable with it (and aren’t harming anyone, but that should go without saying).

There is absolutely no reason why someone cannot or should not cosplay a character that is not their size. None whatsoever. If you are okay with it, then I say to go for it, damn the haters. Cosplay whoever the hell you want.

If you aren’t personally comfortable with it for any reason, then don’t. Whether you aren’t comfortable not matching a certain body type, or showing too much skin, or can’t handle potential rude comments (from people like the ones you are talking to, it sounds like), then that’s a line that you, personally, have every right to draw. No one else has the right to draw that line for you.

So if you want to cosplay to body type: great! If you don’t want to limit your character choices: great! It’s up to you, not anyone else, what you decide to put your time and money into and wear on your own body. 

I’d recommend learning how to tailor things to fit your own size and your own proportions. This is helpful for any size, but especially so if you are trying to translate something that is designed for a thin character into something that can be worn on a larger body, since proportion and fit will change when worn on a different body type. Don’t be afraid of changing designs to be more flattering to your particular body (raising or lowering waistlines, changing hem lengths, etc.). And hey, if there’s some cool embroidery or another design on the outfit, you have more real estate to show it off, so also don’t be afraid to really punch up those elements or add more to the design so that it covers the needed area on the costume.

Make sure that things fit well – often people will wear very baggy items thinking that it “disguises” their body (no body is inherently bad and needs to be “disguised” but that’s another discussion), but it creates an unflattering silhouette, so make sure that things are well-tailored to fit you, and to show off your best features. Another common mistake, especially with stretchy garments, is making them too small so that they press into the body or otherwise create fit issues such as riding up, so again, make sure that things fit well. Shapewear can also help smooth things out, if that is a concern of yours (and it is a concern of a lot of people of all sizes). Of course, you don’t /need/ to do any of this, but it’ll create a more traditionally attractive look, and will help boost your construction quality.

If the only thing holding you back is people telling you that you have no business cosplaying those characters, let me tell you that you have all of the business cosplaying those characters. It’s not affecting anyone else for you to cosplay a thin character, except for you. I’d encourage you to go for it.

I hope that helps! Good luck :]

Become one with yourself. When your body says something, listen to it. When your mind is burnt out, respect that. We can either work with or against ourselves; you choose which route you’d like to take.

Take a moment. Really. Are you being too harsh on yourself? Remember that you must give yourself enough time to grow. You must show yourself patience. Unconditional love. Acceptance. Showing hostility towards yourself will not speed up your growth, but only dampen it. So remember, handle yourself delicately, and give yourself some more credit.
