Current mood: wishing cosplayers would be more forthcoming and honest about their imperfections like stretch marks and cellulite.
it's normal, it's healthy, it's nothing to be ashamed of, and yet we all hide it or edit it out. And I fucking get it, I've done it too, it sucks when you don't look like all the other people posting pictures of their bodies but as it turns out a lot of them don't look like that either. Of course I recognize how important lighting and camera equipment are towards naturally minimizing those imperfections and just because you don't see someone's cellulite or stretch marks doesn't mean they edit themselves, but realistically as someone who's been in the game for a while, it often does. I really wish my cellulite and stretch marks weren't something that induced so much anxiety in me. I know that a lot of that anxiety stems from feeling like I'm in the minority for having them, but I know that I'm not. Idk man /rant over/
