The couple that cosplays together stays together, and it’s been a good 12 years <3  Me and my wifey not only cosplayed together on Saturday of Minneapolis Comic Con, but we were on the City Pages best costumes list!  She’s actually wearing the Belle dress she made for me, but using a bodice so it fits her better.

I’m super happy with this pic because she rarely cosplays lately. She gets my costumes done and has plans for her own, but never gets to them.  And she’s always super encouraging with me, you know?  So on Saturday our friend watched our table for a bit and we walked around together, and it was great seeing her get the love I think she deserves :)

My gorgeous wifey is Belle from Beauty and the Beast.

I am Neo Queen Serenity from Sailor Moon.

Can I ask a request for photos? Photos of fat girls cosplaying, especially above a US size 20, and most especially cosplaying the characters fat girls aren't "supposed" to cosplay. I'm trying to build up the courage, at a size 24/26, to cosplay.


Readers, assemble!  Submit your pics and links and stories to us!

I know we reblog from one fat cosplayer fairly regularly when she submits links (I cannot remember your name for the life of me right now and I’m so sorry!), but I’m sure there are more of you out there.

Also check out some other tumblrs about fat cosplay.  And the tag.

I hope you find the inspiration and reassurance you need!  Now go forth and cosplay your gorgeous heart out.

(I’m very bad at knowing what’s triggering to others, but I don’t want anyone to be triggered by anything I’ve written so I guess Potential Trigger Warning.) I’ve never really done anything like this, never shown my body to the world. But I think it’s time to. I spent a long time believing that I was worthless. Thinking I was less than for how I looked. My mom put me on diet after diet after diet when I was younger. I was punished if I didn’t lose enough weight. These efforts were completely unsuccessful. She’s given up on changing who I am and I have never been happier. I would be okay with losing a few pounds, but I’m done changing myself to fit into what someone else deems acceptable. I won’t. I can’t say that I love all 290 pounds, but I’m getting there. I don’t hate myself anymore. I’m learning to accept my too small boobs, my dimply thighs, my stretch-marked tummy, and round face. I’m getting there.

*ATTENTION ALL BIKINI BABES*

I’m a woman on a mission!! I’m aiming to create a wonderful, inspiring, and enlightening post for my blog; a post full of women from all walks of life, of all shapes and sizes, wearing bikinis. I believe all bodies are beautiful and you should never be ashamed, or feel you should hide your imperfections, for any reason. As the greatest sex goddess of our time, Marilyn Monroe said: “Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”

Help me show me show the world you can wear a bikini at any size. I am hoping to collect photos of 101 women in bikinis/fatkinis and would love if you could include a quote about how wearing the suit makes you feel. If I end up with less than 101, so be it, any number of beautiful inspiring women is fine by me! If you would like to be involved please send a good quality photo (Cell Phone is fine but, no blurry pics) and your quote to.. Everydayislikehalloween@hotmail.com.

The deadline for submissions is Friday, July 4th , 2014.

Not sure if you want to be involved and would like to creep my blog first?? Take a peep here… http://fatshionpeepshow.blogspot.ca/

Still not sure, or have questions? Please Facebook message me, I would be happy to answer any questions you have. https://www.facebook.com/FatshionPeepshow

*Please SHARE this post with other body positive babes you think would be interested in participating. Help me get word out.

Today I sat topless at a public beach and it felt fantastic.

I don’t like to wear animal print, but I love this.  If there is a print of a whole animal on it, then I love it.  It is strange, because I don’t think I’d wear something with zebra print on it, but I was SO happy when I found this with zebras on it!  I also love the little details.  The buttons are small studs and the collar also has studs on it.  The shirt is pretty sheer, as you can see in the third picture which was an accidental self timer selfie that I included to show the details.

Shirt- Julie’s Closet purchased from Ross size 3x

Skirt- Old Navy size XL

Shoes- Deb Shops size 11

Do you know of any blogs that promote body positivity for nonbinary people? The other anon asking about blogs or posts for men made me want to ask. Thank you!

fuckyeahbodypositivity:

I struggled to find blogs that were specifically body positivity for only non-binary trans folks, but here’s what I found:

Fat Genderqueers

Not specifically body positive, but good resources: The Non-Binary Safe Space especially their positive things tag, Fuck Yeah Transitioning Genderqueers, Genderqueer Pride, Genderqueer Positivity, & Genderqueer Identities (this blog has SO many resources)

Here are some that are primarily non-binary folks submitting photos of themselves/primarily image blogs: Fuck Yeah Non-Binary Fats, Non Binary Cuties, Hell Yeah Non-Binary Selfie Culture, Genderqueer

Same but not non-binary specific: Trans* Body Pride, DMAB Delightful, F Yeah Trans Fashion (a fashion blog but you might dig it), F Yeah Androgyny

And another primarily image (not non-binary specific) blog is Genderrific run by my dear pal Kaethe.

The tag nonbinary positivity might also be a tag you’re interested in.

And you might enjoy the Trans* Enough Project.

Apologies if any of these have problematic content as I’m not very familiar with all of them. 

And folks should feel free to reblog with more blogs!

There’s also nbselfielove :)

Thanks for tagging us!  This is a great list of blogs for non-binary folks!

Something to check out. Need more nonbinary fat visibility!

Reminder for submissions

Just a brief reminder that submissions which uncritically speak of weight loss as inherently good or healthy, or otherwise encourage deliberate weight-loss efforts, will not be posted.  We’ve had a few recently that did this (this is not directed at any one person), so it seems worthwhile to post a general reminder.

Not only is it A: factually incorrect (weight loss and health are not actually connected except in the sense that repeated weight cycling, which is extremely likely since the body fights like hell to return to its preferred set-point weight after you lose weight, is terribly bad for you; see here for additional information about the lies connecting weight loss with health), and B: utterly not in keeping with the spirit of a fat-positive space, which is about honoring and celebrating our bodies as they are, rather than pressuring people to change said bodies, but many of us have struggled with weight-loss, weight-related bullying, and eating disorders/disordered eating problems, and may find such uncritical repetition of cultural fat-shaming narratives in a safe space anywhere from jarring to outright triggering.

This is not to say you are not welcome to try to lose weight if that’s what you want to do with your body.  It’s your body; that’s your decision.  But this is not the place to talk about it, especially not to represent it as healthy behavior or inherently positive.  We do not welcome fat-shaming cultural narratives like fat = unhealthy/thin = healthy into this space.  Period.

Okay?  Okay.  Fat on, my beautiful loves. <3

It makes me laugh when people are just like “just lose weight and you’ll be happy with yourself”. My older sister lost 200+ pounds and still says that she finds problems with herself. Happiness doesn’t sprout from a number on a scale.
