Thank you so much for your support on my latest post!😚
More Mira is on the way:)
2 years ago I cosplayed her in her Bikini from the Grand Magic Games👙 it was the first time wearing a bikini after I gained a lot of weight and it was a very liberating experience.
I still haven't shown any photos of this shoot though because I've been too scared.
There are 2 reasons why:
1. Fear of fat shaming.
Fat people are constantly told to dress as much and as flattering as possible- if they want to be treated with respect. When I'm using the word "fat", I do not mean it a mean way. I use it as a neutral descriptor. And, even if I know you mean well, please don't say something like "you're not fat, you're beautiful". Fat and beautiful are NOT opposites.
2. Fear of slut shaming/unwanted sexualisation.
I've seen a lot of cosplayers being slut shamed for wearing revealing cosplays and it's just so disrespectful. How much someone is wearing is not making them any less worthy of respect. Unwanted sexualisation has to do with this. I've been sexualized from the age of 11 by children and adults. And because of this, when someone calls me "sexy" or anything like that, I still cringe. It's a reminder that my body is for others to watch and not for me live in. .
But I so want to break through this. If I feel sexy, I should be able to express it in a way I feel comfortable with.
This is about being myself. I like sexy outfits. I always did but the fear of being shamed, insulted and treated without any respect has suppressed me all the time. That doesn't mean I'm not scared now, I'm still fucking scared.
At the same time, I've got enough of hiding myself.
I don't owe anyone to "cover up". I'm ready to own who I've become.🤘🏻 .
Be aware that every comment that makes others or me feel uncomfortable the way we are will be deleted. I don't allow any judgmental shit in my space🖕🏻
