I'll just let your imagination answer this one.

what do you eat and lift to get dat stronk?

thousandfacescosplay13 karma2019-06-30 19:15:36 UTC
I never knew this existed and I'm so happy now
deemonstalker4 karma2019-06-30 19:20:29 UTC
Those delts and shoulder caps look like the product of Mexican supplements (IMO). You guys look great regardless of the speculation of the juice. To be so dedicated to such an art as cosplay and maintaining incredible physiques is an inspiration. Keep up the awesome work.
thousandfacescosplay6 karma2019-06-30 19:24:00 UTC
Pretty sure my prescription test is from a US facility, but hell if I know for sure 🤣
thousandfacescosplay356 karma2019-06-30 17:05:17 UTC
No, but really. We both keep our nutrition pretty disciplined, lots of lean meats and complex carbs, like rice, sweet potatoes, oats, etc. We both also lift 5-7 days a week. 💪
WackyBeachJustice99 karma2019-06-30 17:16:08 UTC
Genetic lottery and hard work.
-Cheule-44 karma2019-06-30 17:23:44 UTC
I don’t know why you’re being downvoted. Genetics is definitely a factor.
Edit: the comment above turned positive numbers, guess people aren’t as willfully ignorant as I imagine they are.
thousandfacescosplay60 karma2019-06-30 18:11:32 UTC
Genetics are a factor that can't be denied. But just one factor
McveigshArk357 karma2019-06-30 16:54:13 UTC
Which cosplay did you have the most fun making and showing off ?
thousandfacescosplay448 karma2019-06-30 16:56:53 UTC
Our favorites to perform as are definitely Krieg and Tiny Tina from borderlands. My personal favorite to show off as an outfit is Kratos
Tavers292 karma2019-06-30 17:15:39 UTC
Can I ask why you chose Krieg and Tina, rather than, say Krieg and Maya?
thousandfacescosplay87 karma2019-06-30 18:09:43 UTC
Tina is more fun as a character to portray. More energy, more psycho
3-eyed-raisin47 karma2019-06-30 17:36:21 UTC
My bet is she doesn’t think she sounds enough like Maya to pull it off
Tavers210 karma2019-06-30 17:37:58 UTC
I'm wondering if they know about any of the theories surrounding Krieg and Tina. Assuming they do, and they play off that, damn. That's real commitment.
thousandfacescosplay40 karma2019-06-30 18:10:11 UTC
Those theories have been debunked by the creators
DevDaniels1250 karma2019-06-30 16:54:23 UTC
What do you mean by immersive?
thousandfacescosplay408 karma2019-06-30 16:58:36 UTC
We perform as the characters, from trying to imitate their movements, dialogue, voices, etc. We also aim to stay in character whenever feasible
Mzuxe160 karma2019-06-30 16:51:20 UTC
What got you guys into cosplay?
thousandfacescosplay339 karma2019-06-30 16:52:51 UTC
We met performing at a renaissance faire, so this was a really natural evolution... with the added benefit of air conditioning
_BioPsychoSocial_95 karma2019-06-30 17:13:28 UTC
If you donate the proceedings from appearances, what do you both do for a living?
thousandfacescosplay130 karma2019-06-30 17:19:02 UTC
We both work a lot of gigs, personal training, social media manager, day care, etc
TheFirstAndrew11 karma2019-06-30 19:19:56 UTC
Is this suburbanite speak for "My parents have money?"
thousandfacescosplay10 karma2019-06-30 19:22:43 UTC
We definitely are from middle class, hard working families and we're grateful for all their hard work. My parents owned restaurants, her parents are a nurse and a UPS driver. They taught us to hustle.
PinguStoleMyFish93 karma2019-06-30 16:57:52 UTC
Hey, fellas! How long does it usually take to create and wear a costume for you two? I mean, the most difficult ones.
thousandfacescosplay128 karma2019-06-30 17:01:53 UTC
The most difficult to make has taken 6-9 months, because we do this purely as a hobby. And that same cosplay takes about 90 minutes to put on, from the makeup to the armor (Kratos from the most recent God of War)
Kurukato21 karma2019-06-30 17:49:40 UTC
I really want to see your God of War cosplay.
thousandfacescosplay9 karma2019-06-30 18:12:45 UTC
indiemosh20 karma2019-06-30 18:35:25 UTC
That's a great photo of an axe but the cosplay isn't really visible...
thousandfacescosplay21 karma2019-06-30 18:54:43 UTC
There ya go
TheSinningRobot9 karma2019-06-30 18:23:45 UTC
What do you guys do as careers? I'm trying to understand having a full time job, doing cosplay and still maintaining your physiques. Sounds like you guys never rest
The5Virtues5 karma2019-06-30 19:07:52 UTC
Not OP but I can answer the question pretty well.
It’s all about discipline and time management. Time management is the answer to pretty much any question like this. You plan out your time and you stick to your plan. You don’t skip your work outs, you don’t skip your allotted errands or cosplay building time, you don’t take unplanned cheat days. EVERYTHING IS PLANNED.
You usually account for a 2-4 days a month going haywire and not going to plan. When that happens you adjust your schedule and make sure you still find time to do the things you need to get done.
I won’t lie, it sucks. Your day becomes very routine and there’s not much room for spontaneity but if you love something (such as cosplay) you sacrifice for it. You plan accordingly and you stay disciplined in maintaining what you need (money, time, fitness) to do what you love.
thousandfacescosplay3 karma2019-06-30 19:17:10 UTC
This is a solid answer
god_the_II65 karma2019-06-30 16:51:06 UTC
Why are you doing this?
thousandfacescosplay121 karma2019-06-30 16:51:42 UTC
Because it's fun! It lets us express our fandom and gives us an outlet for performance
RealDacoTaco50 karma2019-06-30 17:17:26 UTC
Ill ask the same question that i asked kamui few years ago : what is your cosplay community like, and is it a competitive community ? Where are you guys based ?
thousandfacescosplay81 karma2019-06-30 17:45:19 UTC
It can be super competitive and toxic like any community of decent size can be. But we try to avoid any of that and spread positivity. We're all just geeks playing dress up
pmMeOurLoveStory5 karma2019-06-30 17:43:40 UTC
I’m also a cosplayer, so since they didn’t answer, (edit: I guess we were writing our responses at the same time) I can give you my experience:
I’ve personally never met a shitty cosplayer. Weird? Absofuckinglutely, but never shitty. (1) Everyone is always just happy to show off what they worked on, regardless of the quality, and happy to see other people’s costumes.
There absolutely is a bit of a competitive edge, but it’s pretty much all healthy and internalized. “Oh man, their costume is better than mine; I need to step up my game. I should ask them how they did x, y, or z.”
(1) That doesn’t mean there aren’t shitty people in the community, but you see them in their “happy place” so even the bad ones are typically on their best behavior.
thousandfacescosplay8 karma2019-06-30 18:07:04 UTC
We...we did answer 🤣
wedonotglow48 karma2019-06-30 17:22:11 UTC
Hey! You guys look so creative! Have you ever cosplayed opposite genders?
thousandfacescosplay73 karma2019-06-30 18:06:26 UTC
Yes! For example, we've done a male Zarya from overwatch and we're working on a female Eraserhead from My Hero Academia
nz8drzu648 karma2019-06-30 17:07:03 UTC
How do you optimize luggage space when travelling to conventions? For couples where one is a non-cosplayer, half of their luggage gets hijacked by the other.
thousandfacescosplay63 karma2019-06-30 17:08:29 UTC
Well, in that situation the non-cosplayer needs to adjust, as the cosplayer will naturally take uo more room. As for us, we've just packed up for cons so many times that it's almost second nature. The real challenge for us is we always bring all our food for the con with us, so that takes up additional space
johnny_manziel6941 karma2019-06-30 17:04:33 UTC
What’s your cycle?
thousandfacescosplay67 karma2019-06-30 17:05:55 UTC
A testosterone prescription with 10mg of dedication. What about you? 🤣
zf42037 karma2019-06-30 17:14:39 UTC
How do you support your selves financially? I always thought cosplay was an odd way to make a living but some people manage it. Do you get most of your money from game companies? Conventions? The venues themselves? Patreon? Contest winnings?And how comfortable are you with your cosplay earnings? I'm genuinely curious.
thousandfacescosplay51 karma2019-06-30 17:16:25 UTC
We make no money off of cosplay. Anything we bring in, we donate. We both have multiple other work gigs
Kenmichi8 karma2019-06-30 17:45:34 UTC
What, where, and how are you making money via cosplay at conventions? I used to compete in costume contests, won, and only got trophies or atta-boys.
thousandfacescosplay14 karma2019-06-30 18:13:49 UTC
We have a table where we offer prints in exchange for any donation to the charity we're working with at that time
Bassookajoe35 karma2019-06-30 17:38:31 UTC
I just wanted to thank you guys. I follow you on Instagram and am a big nerd. I've struggled with my weight my whole life and you both have been an inspiration for me to be better. Thanks a lot.
What's one cosplay you haven't done that you really want to do?
thousandfacescosplay41 karma2019-06-30 17:56:31 UTC
Dude, thank you for this. We're honored to have helped in any way.
Guts and Griffith from Berserk! But... that might be happening soon......
jicty22 karma2019-06-30 17:29:23 UTC
Has someone at a con ever crossed a line with you? Like hit you with a fake sword or been too graby? What do you do when that happens? Do you break character?
thousandfacescosplay50 karma2019-06-30 18:02:53 UTC
All the time, but we try to handle it in character. We've been hit, grabbed, followed, touched, etc. The exception to staying in character is sexual harassment. We will break character and tell them off very loudly if that occurs.
Kor_Morant19 karma2019-06-30 17:15:36 UTC
Hey guys! Any advice for starters/casuals of cosplay?
thousandfacescosplay10 karma2019-06-30 18:14:51 UTC
Our biggest advice is to do it for you, do it the way you like. Don't worry about anyone's negative comments (just look at some in this thread). It's all about having fun, never forget that part
kalacaska18 karma2019-06-30 17:14:34 UTC
Do you go to Blizzcon?
thousandfacescosplay24 karma2019-06-30 17:16:34 UTC
I wish... one day
dcostalis10 karma2019-06-30 17:42:22 UTC
You’d pull of Raynor like a boss.
thousandfacescosplay8 karma2019-06-30 18:15:03 UTC
Duuude. That would be awesome
SquanchingOnPao16 karma2019-06-30 17:13:12 UTC
Are you both natty?
thousandfacescosplay39 karma2019-06-30 17:19:28 UTC
She's entirely. I have had a TRT prescription for the last six months or so
SquanchingOnPao17 karma2019-06-30 17:35:33 UTC
I have been interested in getting a script myself at 33. Did you have low levels or is your Dr just liberal about it? People do need to understand it still takes an incredible amount of dedication to achieve such aesthetics. Good job
thousandfacescosplay17 karma2019-06-30 18:16:36 UTC
I actually did have low levels. It's made my quality of life so much better, from sleep to mood to, obviously, the gym
PurnurplePanda13 karma2019-06-30 17:22:54 UTC
Why animal charities in particular?
thousandfacescosplay22 karma2019-06-30 18:05:44 UTC
We love animals. Also a friend of ours donates his proceeds to Make A Wish, so we wanted to help a different niche. Animals are also largely a-political. Most people, regardless of politics or anything, like animals
mikeroySoft11 karma2019-06-30 17:14:15 UTC
Do you guys do paid gigs, or just cons? (Or, where do you “perform”?)
thousandfacescosplay16 karma2019-06-30 17:17:30 UTC
We perform at the conventions mostly. We have done hired gigs outside of conventions, too
Teharu11 karma2019-06-30 17:39:39 UTC
I've heard cosplayers (men and women) tend to suffer from sexual harassment, have you ever countered any sort of harrasment? Do you think there's something that could be done to prevent it?
thousandfacescosplay14 karma2019-06-30 17:55:51 UTC
We have, unfortunately. In our opinion, the best thing that can be done to prevent it is conventions to continue to spread awareness about proper behavior and for cosplayers and convention-goers to call it out online and even more so call it out when it happens
I_for_a_y10 karma2019-06-30 17:07:40 UTC
What’s been your least favourite character/s to either cosplay as or create?
thousandfacescosplay31 karma2019-06-30 17:10:01 UTC
Oh, that's an interesting one. We actually have a number of cosplays we never wear to cons because we don't enjoy performing as the character, so we ended up making the outfit and then selling it off to someone who'd get more use out of it. Jon Snow comes to mind
barre_chord_reality8 karma2019-06-30 17:32:57 UTC
Do you use a 3D printer for making your costumes?
thousandfacescosplay13 karma2019-06-30 17:59:44 UTC
We have and it's amazingly helpful. The mask on her head in the photo on the left is 3d printed, for example
OptimusSublime7 karma2019-06-30 17:30:13 UTC
What does your annual costume budget look like?
thousandfacescosplay12 karma2019-06-30 18:01:40 UTC
It varies depending on the projects for the year. Some cosplays barely cost $10 in time and materials. Making Zarya's particle cannon... that was more expensive
Leeiteee6 karma2019-06-30 20:28:25 UTC
Deleted? What happened?
thousandfacescosplay4 karma2019-06-30 20:39:10 UTC
Just ran out of time to answer more! Didn't want people to post questions we couldn't answer
strawberri19946 karma2019-06-30 17:40:33 UTC
Do you guys have an Instagram? I'd love to follow and see your cosplays. Btw i love boarderlands. Nice cosplay!!!
thousandfacescosplay6 karma2019-06-30 17:47:20 UTC
We do! www.instagram.com/thousand_faces_cosplay
yerroslawsum6 karma2019-06-30 18:15:33 UTC
Not to be toxic but do you guys have any thoughts on the cosplayer etiquette that some people perhaps can't grasp or respect? Could be anything really, but feel free to satisfy my internal asshole with stories if you wish.
thousandfacescosplay11 karma2019-06-30 18:20:18 UTC
Oh jeez... honestly, this is a huge topic. One that we've been talking about recently is that harassment happens to Male cosplayers, too. Just treat cosplayers with basic human respect. Putting on a costume doesn't strip us of being people
EuphoricDisaster6 karma2019-06-30 18:25:36 UTC
Did you say your I dos in cosplay?
thousandfacescosplay9 karma2019-06-30 18:30:57 UTC
No hahaha, we actually kept our wedding costume free
SvNOrigami5 karma2019-06-30 17:23:01 UTC
Are there any characters you'd love to do but haven't had time yet?
thousandfacescosplay9 karma2019-06-30 18:04:39 UTC
Nightmare and Tira from Soul Calibur! So cooool
Philooch5 karma2019-06-30 17:35:12 UTC
Do you guys have an instagram ?
Edit: i didnt even think to just check your reddit account. 🤪
thousandfacescosplay9 karma2019-06-30 17:59:10 UTC
Just in case...
stupidmentat4 karma2019-06-30 17:32:26 UTC
How do you make enough money to cosplay while also having enough time to cosplay?
thousandfacescosplay6 karma2019-06-30 18:00:25 UTC
Taking our time in making cosplays helps and asking our more talented friends to help when we don't have the time or skill is even more helpful haha
LightShade_BR4 karma2019-06-30 17:36:41 UTC
Is it possible to live from cosplay? Or it will be required a main job?
thousandfacescosplay8 karma2019-06-30 17:58:50 UTC
Some people do, but it's tough. Most who make a living off of it do so by selling Props and cosplays
Honduriel4 karma2019-06-30 18:06:42 UTC
Is the right picture Conan and Red Sonya?
thousandfacescosplay5 karma2019-06-30 18:19:12 UTC
DootDotDittyOtt3 karma2019-06-30 17:40:04 UTC
Do you have any pets yourselves?
thousandfacescosplay12 karma2019-06-30 17:47:43 UTC
We do! 5 cats at the moment 🐯
Frank_the_Mighty3 karma2019-06-30 17:26:36 UTC
What's a cosplay that would impress the average person, but isn't too hard to make?
thousandfacescosplay6 karma2019-06-30 18:03:39 UTC
Hmmm.... maybe a Kingdom Hearts cosplay? Or Neagan from Walking Dead
GamerKingFaiz0 karma2019-06-30 17:14:17 UTC
Man, you guys are a real power couple! What is your workout/diet regimen?
Here's there social:
Facebook| Instagram| Twitter
thousandfacescosplay5 karma2019-06-30 17:16:59 UTC
We both are currently following programs from John Meadows. He's the man!
LifeIs3D0 karma2019-06-30 17:12:00 UTC
To both of you: Doesn't it bother you that other guys see your SO in kind of very little clothing?
Also - wow, amazingly realistic outfits!
Edit: Not sure why I'm getting downvoted for asking a question? Perhaps some think I'm passing judgement which I'm not - I'm simply asking how they feel about it.
Edit 2: Spelling correction of edit 1.
thousandfacescosplay11 karma2019-06-30 17:19:52 UTC
Not in the least. The human body is beautiful and it hurts no one if someone looks
ButActuallyNot-3 karma2019-06-30 17:11:07 UTC
People pay for you to put on costumes and walk around? More than you spend? Why?
thousandfacescosplay7 karma2019-06-30 17:12:59 UTC
We are cosplay guests, just like conventions bring in artist guests, voice actor guests, etc. We don't actually accept any money from cons, they tend to provide us with room and booth space, with any financial compensation then getting donated to our current charity.
