Hello /cgl/, I've lurked around sometimes, since I got interested in going to con's around 2011, and I generally love to see pretty girls in beautiful inctricate dresses and fluffy costumes.
Last weekend I, however, got a forcing need to want to get into shape and do a crossplay, possibly of Kaname Madoka or Akemi Homura, but here's the problem. I'm a 183cm/128Kg (6ft/282Ibs) mixture of a chubby tummy and muscles. I've always held a soft spot in my heart of womens clothes and I'd really love to perform a crossplay since a lot of other people even bigger than me do them, but I'd actually want to pull a good performance off. I just greatly dislike that I'm so tall and not too well fit. I just started running laps around two days ago to try and drop my tummy, and I'm keeping a watchful eye on my diet too. What I'd really like to ask in here though, is that is it even possible for me, as tall as I am, even if I do drop my belly and gain a more slim figure, make a good crossplay? And how do you even begin to make a costume? I was thinking of drawing some of the shapes of, say, Homuras blouse and trying to sew one for the fun of it, but is there a ready pattern people use or something?
