I don’t even need to tell you guys how much I love this by now, right? You can just see a fat, tattooed mermaid and know that I will love it to death.
Ugh, YESSSSSSSS. Just get at me with a POC version too but YESSSSSSS.
F.A.T. Fashion Show Toronto May 2011
Everything about this is fucking fabulous, but uhhhh THOSE GLASSES. I NEED THOSE GLASSES.
[I am suss about the potentially culturally appropriative tatts though)
Well Santa, he never stood a Chance!
I don’t normally reblog sexy things, but this one made me happy. She’s not plus size model fat, but fat fat. And she hasn’t been photoshopped to death, she still has rolls, and the little fold at the top of her arm, and you can see the lines of her feet.
Also, I adore the gender swap from normal advertising, she’s alert, happy, with a playful expression, while Santa is just laying there.
Also, I don’t want to know what is being advertised, it’d probably make me sad, so I am going to go with willful ignorance.
I legit didn’t even notice santa was there until it was pointed out in the comments.
And geekgirlsmash, I’m about to make you very happy. It’s an ad for Duloren, a Brazilian lingerie company that makes both straight-sized and plus-sized (and I mean actual plus, not ‘American size 12 is plus’ kind of plus) lingerie. The model in question is Mayara Russi (slight, slight tw on that site in general for discussion of sizes/weights and body issues, though the thread I linked is fine).
Also, they’re apparently pro-gay-marriage; click the ‘campanhas’ button on the brazilian site and it takes you to an ad promoting the campaign for gay marriage in brazil (as far as I can tell. My portuguese is rusty at best)
The USA site, of course, is about as classy as you’d expect.
Re-reblogging because I LOVE seeing FAT ROLLS!!! on a fat girl *beams!!!*
Also beaming at thelefthandedwife’s…”And geekgirlsmash, I’m about to make you very happy.”
