Default Yeah, it's a NSV, but it's a hassle too

So, I first started this journey 2 1/2 years ago at 280 lbs, with one primary goal : to lose enough weight to get back into wearing costumes to conventions. Specifically one costume which I had long since outgrown. Last year I achieved that goal and wore it proudly. I wasn't entirely pleased with how I looked in it, but it fit, and that was what mattered.

Convention season's coming up again, so I tried on the costume for looks. And I look terrific in it. Better than I ever have in my life. Except... it's too big. By a lot. I'm going to have to buy new pants and a vest, and I haven't budgeted for them. There goes my loot money for the con.

Hah, well, you gotta laugh.

That is an awesome NSV...perhaps that could be your treat when you get to goal...a completely new costume!!

That's a great NSV! Just curious, what kind of conventions are these? Was wondering if you were another Trekkie, like me...

Congratulations! How much fun you sound, too! Costumes and conventions - I bet you enjoy those so much more as a fitter person.

Thanks everyone! And runningfrom, it's DragonCon and maybe Anime Weekend Atlanta. Not a Trekkie, but very much the geek. The costume in question is Irvine Kinneas from Final Fantasy VIII (as seen by the pic in my profile page).

That's a good idea PreciousMommy, I'd planned to get some new costumes anyway once I reached a good weight. I suppose now's as good a time as any.

Congrats on the weight loss so far!

As far as the costume parts, can you look at a thrift store or second hand store for a vest and pants that you could spiff up to look like those ones? I guess I can't tell from the picture too well but they look like pretty simple khakis and a black vest... considering you still have 30 lb til goal weight you'll probably move down a few more sizes at least and then will be stuck with more big clothes!!

Congrats!
Do you know anyone that could take the costume in for you? That may be an option for your "in between" size then you can enjoy the event and have a new costume to look forward to for next year.
Just a thought from someone that has taken in several articles of clothing cuz I just dont want to spend all the money for a new wardrobe every 30 or 40 pounds ... the money I save I put aside for when I do cross the finish line
