Sometimes you have to be Simon Cowell... seriously, 90% of bad cosplay is bad because the costumes are too revealing for the person's figure.
Not really that but more people picking characters that they can't really pull off. Face it, there's alot of people wearing clothes in real life that have no business doing so why would it be different with cosplay. If people would pay attention to what looks good on them then there would be no such thing as bad cosplay.

Surely though, thats because they are just normal people having a bit of fun. Why should they diet just for a costume?
But you are right, I do look too big in this costume, hence why I never really wanted to do it.
That's right it is all about fun, the fun of making stuff then wearing it and running around the convention like a big dork.
But for what it's worth I don't think you look too big for that costume I liked it.

That's the difficulty with doing cosplay as a female. There's a certain body type that's almost exclusive to anime women, and their costumes are designed to accentuate that. When a girl with a different body type tries to put on the same costume... it just doesn't look good. I think that if you're gonna do cosplay, and you want to make it look good, I think by necessity you need to get yourself in shape. Otherwise, of course people are going to say it looks bad, because most people are looking for a reasonable real-life facsimile of an anime character, not a loose interpretation of one.
Well alot of times that's not possible but with some special effects it can be faked. Plus, it's like I said above. People need to know what looks good on them. That's why when I cosplay I try to think of what that person would look like in real life and go from there.
That was a little tougher when I was putting Envy together.

I think it's just that anime costumes in general don't look flattering in real figures. Heck, I'm a skeleton, and the only time I've ever really looked like I had a belly was in my Envy costume. It's strange. A cosplay curse of sorts...
This is true but with some alterations and re-designing it can be done.
What belly? Not to shabby male Ed cosplayerBacon
Do you have a picture of that Holland guy I couldn't find one.
