I'm going to my first Con in July. Since I'm new to cosplay I decided to do a easy (not so easy) character. However to pull it off I've had to get toned and trim. I just want to know if there are any other cosplayers out there, specifically ones who've gotten in shape for it. I was looking to maybe start a group or a team to help each other stay motivated, discuss upcoming events, share photos and really just to make friends. Never know who you may see at a Con one day ^_^ so to anyone interested I urge you to reply, this could be really fun

Kurnatd, I cosplay, but I didn't get into any specific shape for it. Last year I went to Dragon Con in Atlanta. I was Hippolyta ( more commonly known as Wonder Woman's mother).

In reply to CJ H: Those are all cool characters to do. My first con was the Anime Blues Con 6 in Memphis. I went as Gray Fullbuster from the anime/manga called Fairy Tail. I was a bit self conscious myself because the character is notorious for wearing little to no clothing. Though i didn't get as extreme to prance around in my boxer shorts like the character would, i did go shirtless/open shirt for the entirety of the Con. It was a unique experience for me and most of the people there said that the loved the costume (and abs) so i guess my hard work paid off and a big plus is that it helped out my self-confidence ^_^
