One was bullied her most of her life. One almost died. But they both found inspiration and strength in Rey cosplay. You HAVE to watch this video of these two strong, beautiful plus size cosplayers. Each of them has a gut-wrench story to tell. But they also offer incredible wisdom and hope about being body positive, inclusive, and confident as a plus size woman. Their plus size cosplay of Rey from Star Wars is beautiful and inspiring. (And where did they get their amazing Rey costume? You have to watch to find out.)
