Either existing ones, like vampire, werewolf, or create some, like based on foods, whatever!
I have NO idea if I’ll have time for this, I’m so busy with commissions, but it might be fun practice if I get the time.
I’m not actually sure I’d have any advice for you, I personally didn’t struggle with the thought of posting art online like others did. I happily shared it. I will say though that almost every artist struggles with confidence, so don’t feel as though it’s only you. I still have days where I end up crying because I don’t like I’m doing and it’s a normal feeling to have, just don’t let it stop you, get back up and continue your work! :3
It would actually help a lot if you came off Anon and sent me a message with your account, It’d be much easier to go back and forth privately, as anon can only be posted publicly. Your questions are large ones that can have many, many answers, so it’d be a lot easier if you ask specific questions. For example: Tips on professionalism with commissions, what to do in x situation, etc!
The reason I ask is because I’m actually thinking of doing a cosplay in the future, but I’m not sure I feel confident about it.
There’s a huge community in the cosplay world that is downright nasty to those who don’t look right, things like poor costume, overweight or don’t have the right assets, like a small chest instead of large.
People always tell you to ignore it, not care and have fun. But not everyone can do that, I’m sure many people can understand that. I’m sensitive, and by experience, I know this isn’t something I can turn off, it takes time to get better. Personally, if I feel I may feel uncomfortable, I’d rather not do it, because I want to enjoy myself instead of endure stares and have people think I look horrible, not right and don’t fit the character. In my own clothes, I can feel confident, cute and sexy, but I’m not trying to look like anyone either, who is the opposite of me.
Seeing a blog about plus sized cosplay does help a lot, so I’m happy there was one and someone shared it! Whenever I see cosplay posts floating around, especially the popular makers, it’s almost never that I see someone plus sized, so I wanted to see people who are happy and confident cosplaying as they are.
For now, I’m still deciding if I’ll do it or not.
Do any of you know of blogs that showcase plus size cosplayers? Or even just one person’s blog and they’re plus sizes.
It’d just be nice to get some reassurance right now.
