I'm gonna share some handmade and modified cosplays I've done with Love Live because a lot of the time, the cosplays aren't very plus size friendly so I make them work for me! I made Candy maid Kotori within a week before the con because I wanted a project to do that wasn't super hard but I also had the free time to do it. I have highlights on my instagram story which goes into more behind the scenes process of making it!
Hello! My name is Lucy and I am probably the biggest Mari Ohara lover in the world. Seriously, it's a problem. I am the Honoka cosplayer carrying the Mari and Yohane nesos! I thought I'd post a little information about myself if you'd like to be friends!
I was the leader of the first ever idol group in the UAE which performed at Games con and Insomnia 2019, however I had to leave the group due to school. The group is still going! It is called Coral Wave!
I am a senior at the moment and I try my best to collect Mari merch with my best ability as shipping to the UAE is near impossible and I do not work for my own money. At the moment I have 2 Mari figures, 1 Mari neso, and 1 Honoka figure!
I used to be in the bandori fandom for the entirety of 2017-ish before converting to the cult of Love Live. I was already a fan, but never to this extent. My best girls from bandori are ♡ Himari ♡ , Kaoru, and Hina!
I love the aqours girls so much. I relate to each character and the Sunshine season must've hit me differently or something because although I love muse, aqours will always be my favorite deep down.

Hello! I'm a bit late to the party but I wanted to introduce myself here
I'm a cosplayer going by the name Nervous Nugget and I've been a fan of Love Live! since 2013!
I cosplay from a few different things, but my fave thing to cosplay is Love Live and other idol girls <3
I'm nervousnugget on instagram if you're interested in seeing my other cosplays! (I'm also on sukutomo and banpa, in addition to a few other social medias)
My best girls are everyone in µ's and Mari! But I love all of the girls a lot
I absolutely love everything Love Live, and I'm looking forward to using Idol Story more in the future with you guys
Here's another cosplay/photo I love! I bought an XL of the bokuhashi cosplay from the sunshine movie and added panels into the sides of the shirt and extra back pleats and ruffles into the skirt. I had a bad experience with a seller not telling me they couldn't make my size until hours before its meant to ship out so I went with the option of modifying the cosplay and my groups arcade/city photoshoot in this set still came out amazing! I have a highlight on my insta where you can see the process of the modifications.
I thought that I would share something that I had been working on for almost 2 months! I made and created the You Watanabe koi ni naritai Aquarium cosplay from scratch, I made my own patterns for the scales, top, skirt and socks. I even got a chance to perform in her too, I performed thrilling one way, my favourite Aqours song. Now that I am finally back into cosplay I had received proper sewing equipment to make my cosplays neater, and way more presentable, I brought an overlocker (finally) and a really cool dressmaker mannequin that you adjust. I'm excited to show you my cosplays that I make along the way, my next project is Omoi yo Hitotsu ni nare You Watanabe concert version, stay tuned!!!
Hello! My name is Cassidy but a lot of people know me as Peachie! (I much prefer to be called Cassidy tho :D ) I have been into and cosplaying love live for almost 3 years now, I had recently left the cosplay community about 2 months ago due to toxicity and not having the interest anymore to perform on stage and sew cosplays (cause of toxic salty people). I got back into love live and sewing love live cosplays about a week ago, wanting to come back and show people that I am not going to let people get to me with their toxic words and judgemental thoughts about me. I wanted to find a reason to stop cosplaying and stop producing cosplays. I am coming back to cosplay to show everyone my creativity in sewing and to inspire other cosplayers to get behind a sewing machine and sew, to get up on stage and show people that, solo performers are just as amazing as group performances even though there is one person on stage. So i'm back and I am ready to show everyone that I can still stand back on my feet!
Hiya, I'm Sarah! (also known as berry.cosplay) I'm excited to see a site like this up and running for the love live community! :D This is gonna be a bit of a long journey, make sure you have a snack or something while reading this one.
back in 2015ish, a year after I got into cosplay, I started seeing these cute idol girl cosplays and always wanted to know what anime they were from. (I came in from wanting to cosplay vocaloids, especially the fake vocaloid/utau, Teto Kasane.) I found out it was called Love Live and I found idol groups in my area that I really loved and looked up to in my teen years of cosplay. Funnily enough I started to get into Love Live in 2016 where I heard people talk about how much they hate Love Live and how it sucks, I took that upon myself to actually get into it and it turns out its that very anime that captured my interest for years. And then after watching SIP I downloaded the game. Thank you random people at a con for talking bad about Love Live, your hate for it transpired into my love for it. <3 (I think I jumped in around the Aqours hype so in a way perfect timing)
I've always wanted to be a part of a Love Live cosplay group after I started getting into it. The problem I came across was that there was excitement at the start of some groups being formed, but it turned into ideas that never fully went through. I also use to really feel left out of the cosplay community because I wasn't close with cosplayers, that made me want to leave the community because I was extra shy and didn't know people well enough to cosplay with them. I didn't go to many cons in the past because I was focusing on school.
Fast forward to 2017 and one of my cosplay friends put up a post asking who would like to be part of a Love Live idol group. I took that opportunity to ask if I could cosplay two of my favourite characters for this new group at the time, Kotori and Ruby. And well, I cosplay them nowadays in this very group called @pastelpoplive <3
Pastelpop was one of the first groups i've been in where people were motivated to learn dances, meet up with each other, hang out, and have fun photoshoots together. I came out of my shell a little more, got confidence to meet many new cosplayers and photographers, and actually call them my friends. I also got my first Love Live cosplays for this group! I'm so happy to finally be able to cosplay Love Live with a group of people I really enjoy and love being around! And now its a little bit of a starstruck moment because other cosplayers and idol fans really enjoy people like me and my group and how they want to find people to make their own idol groups. I say go start your own idol groups, you don't have to start with the full 9. With Pastelpop's debut in 2018 we didn't have a full 9 members for our first dance and we still rocked it!
Wheew that was a long one, but I guess to sum up my story, I loved the cute 2d idols enough that I wanted to cosplay them, and then I finally joined a group that helped me come out of my shell and shine.
