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.

Fat shaming = sorry but I'm out. Even if she's meant to be a stereotype of a shallow elitist that's just mean spirited.

@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!

On a related note to Sophie's terrible attitude, I fully intend to give her a big smackdown on it in future >:D
