Talk about fashion trends and miss out on Cosplay? So unfair! Japanese Cosplay trend is a super nerdy and fashionista type of activity. It also carries strongly embedded roots of Japanese pop culture. So why not Manga-inspired street fashion or high-end Anime cosplays? But of course, all fashion representation goes hand in hand with the fitness routine. Otherwise, how would you fit into all those super tight, latex costumes and look graceful at the same time!
Anime Fans’ Take on the Fitness
Back in 2014, the Comic Con got all the nerdy anime fans on their toes as to what should be chosen for the cosplay. There were many who just attended the event for the sake of fun. There were those as well who got inspired. When it came to choosing the most favorite Anime or Game character to do the Cosplay, there were many who went to extreme lengths to make themselves look identical to the character they were representing.
There were examples of those as well who took it too seriously and made a life changing decision of losing some serious lbs. Anne (artist and nerd) is one of the exemplary fans who cut down 100 lbs in order to participate in cosplay next time. Now, she’s actively into cosplay.
Workout Routines for Cosplay Fitness Enthusiasts
Cosplay can be a great motivation for the anime fans to get up and go to the gym for the fitness routine, otherwise, it can be hard to get the nerds off of their video games. Some of the Cosplay Fitness Enthusiasts call it “Video Game Fitness Program” which can help you reach your fitness goals for a successful cosplay (just like you would jump from one stage to another in your video game). There are many online videos, programs, and channels available which can inspire you to get you started on your exercises. After all, who wouldn’t want to look sexy and graceful at the same time? And when your physique goes just right for your Cosplay inspired fashion, the goal is achieved.
Let The Floors be Your Friend
Fashion has to be synonymous to fitness. Why? Because fashion favors those who fit well within all the going on trends. In this case, it’s anime cosplay. That’s when you require some serious fitness routine. Flooring has a real important contribution when you want your fitness routine to go amazingly smooth. Whether you want to opt for dance or workout to cut down those extra lbs that wouldn’t just let your costume fit you well, it is necessary to make sure the floors are cooperative.
This idea actually has the context of good ol’ halls and studios that we see in our dance or yoga classes. These rooms are specially equipped and designed for the comfort and needs of the members. Floors are mostly laminate wood which is quite favorable as it doesn’t go very cold. So, locate a studio or gym with such floors and you are good to start off.
Stick to Original Costumes and Stand Out
Many times we have come across some die-hard fans who always overdo it. Either with shedding the extra pounds, putting on extra makeup or making the costume look, somehow, obnoxious. As a matter of fact, it looks like a total fashion disaster. Here, to save yourself from becoming a fashionista clown, stick rather to the originality of the character. If you planned on recreating a character and you overdid it in terms of costume or makeup, you might be freaking out the audience around without even knowing it. You sticking to the theme also can show off your skills on makeup and your understanding of the Cosplay Fashion.
Following Up On Olympics Games: Inspiration Sakes
Japanese are quite the enthusiasts when it comes to Olympic Games. The Olympic Games play an important role in motivating the Anime fans to stop being slobs and start following the pending fitness program. The Olympic season seems to be quite an opportunity for the fans to catch up on the fitness plans they have been procrastinator about lately. Once in routine, the fans bring about a massive change in their overall looks and that’s how people like us get stunned when we see them in the astonishingly identical avatar. In Cosplay, body image tops the list of fashion requirement and the spirit of Olympics can keep the fans just on the right track for their fitness goals.
