These two plus size cosplayers were inspired to do Elsa cosplay from Frozen for almost the same reason. Elsa's struggle with allowing the world to see who she really is spoke to them. Despite internet trolls and negative comments, they built confidence through Elsa cosplay and they're having a blast. Plus, they realized that the people who support them and applaud them far outnumber the trolls.
Find out how they got started, where they buy their cosplay costumes, and hear their incredible journeys to truly step into their power in this video interview.
