It is important for cosplayers to be weight conscious because the anime characters that they are emulating are usually fit and sexy.
Top cosplayers in the Philippines, sisters Ashley and Alodia Gosiengfiao share what they do to stay fit and healthy. “It is important that you do some stretching as well. You need to have physical exercises, it won’t work on diet alone,” said Alodia. As for Ashley, “Aside from a balanced diet, I try to be sporty as much as possible. I’ve been playing volleyball since I was young. I try to play other sports as well.”
