I am a body positive cosplayer in the Pacific Northwest. I am relatively new to the cosplay/convention scene, as to the fact I grew on a remote island in the Pacific that just had its first nerd convention this year (2014).
I am chubby/fat. I know it. I am ok with this fact! I believe that cosplay should be a personal choice and no one has the right to define what you wear other than yourself. If you feel you could pull off/enjoy cosplaying a character that is your right! If you feel you won't fit a character that is also your right. I hope one day the entire cosplay community can come together in supporting body positivity.
I love JRPGs, amusing American shows, and slice of life/shoujo anime. I spend my time playing board games, D&D (I even DM sometimes), working in a science based government job and harassing my pet cats.
