This is not your average fatshion blog.
Originally, I started posting outfit pictures and resources with the aim of filling the underserved goth/punk/otherwise “alternative” niche in the fatshion-o-sphere.
I saw (and still see) fatshion blogging as a way to make fat bodies visible on our own terms, to challenge the 386,170 fat-negative messages per year that our culture throws at us. To say, with apologies to the queer rights movement: “We’re here, we’re fat, and we’re freaking fabulous!”
Somewhere along the line, I realized I had a lot more to say. About a lot of things.
So this blog has grown from one focused mainly on alt-fatshion to a collection of my thoughts about climate change, activism, the economy, gender, and more. But there are still plenty of outfit pictures involving tutus, tiny hats, glitter bows, spikes, petticoats, and all sorts of fun stuff.
Come for the shiny things, stay for the reflections.
