Simone has moved into a shared house for the first time, with a pal from her university days. The reality is far from the grown-up, yet girly lifestyle she was imagining, as her housemates turn out to be Fujoshi: the ultimate female otakus! Updating on Tuedays.
Fujo Fujo! is written and illustrated by me, Sonia Leong. I work as a full-time Manga artist for various publishers (Tokyopop, Image, VIZ Media, Seven Stories, SelfMadeHero, Hachettes, Walker Books, Harper-Collins, Ilex, Quarto, and more).
I'm also the Company Secretary of Sweatdrop Studios, an independent publisher and collaborative group of manga-influenced creators in the UK. If you'd like to know a little bit more about me, try some of these links below.
As quoted in Cosplay Fever Red, I’ve said, “If you’ve got it, flaunt it – but for GOD’S SAKE, make sure it fits!”. I’m not a skinny Nazi like Sophie but if you’re on the chubby side, make extra effort to ensure a good fit, modify sexy cosplays appropriately, or try choose characters that are fuller figured. Crossplay and me go very well together because like Yuen, I is a TALL AZN = perfect anime male. But the last word in this strip is something that DOES make me LOL. I saw a photo of a girl who wanted to show off her latest lolita dress. Didn’t do her hair, make-up or even turn on the light, she just wore her dress, put a plastic chair(?) on top of her unmade bed (?!) and sat on the chair with no shoes on and took a photo. There’s dealing with the difficulty of using a self-timer on a camera and finding a place to put the damn thing, and just… failing. There are far worst horror stories though, I’m sure you’ll agree.
@not impressed: Sorry that this strip has upset you enough that you want to leave completely. Like I said in my comment accompanying the strip, I am not Sophie. Sophie is meant to be a total bitch, so she spouts some of the worst bile I've heard from nasty people in the scene. She is certainly not meant to be a role model, I'm just writing what I think SHE would say. I am still working on this comic, so of course I am open to suggestions so that I can make it better in future. Personally, I'm all for cosplayers of all sizes, I think it is much more about the fit and accuracy and detail!
