As a fatty, I'd have to say that I'm ok with sexy costumes only being available to skinnies.

Sheesh, people. It's a cartoon. In real life, fat people are not sexy, and coyotes who plummet off thousand foot cliffs die.
 
2012-10-09 10:08:00 AM
That's actually pretty funny.

The "Sassy Ursula" offered in their "Fabulous Flirts" collection

...is clearly not meant for fat chicks.
 
2012-10-09 10:10:15 AM
It's outrageously exclusionary - it basically tells fat women that we're too fat to play a fat character; it also tells fat women that in order to be sexy, a character must be made skinny.

lol

Sybarite: Yes, because that's the only one you could possibly buy.


Oh wow. That is one HIDEOUS costume! Who would wear that?!
 
2012-10-09 10:12:24 AM
but Ursula can't be fat and sexy at the same time

Well yeah. A fat chick dressing up as Ursula would just look like Ursula. Plenty of people do find that sexy though.

How about how all of those "sexy" costumes discriminate against long-waisted tall girls?

Everything you see that comes as one piece with a tiny little skirt ends up being basically a long-ish shirt for some of us.

Or maybe it's a sinister plot to make sure we end up walking around pantsless on Halloween!

Motives! Sinister!

Actually, I'd just prefer more costumes that fell into the space between "slutbag prostitute" and "mumu-wearing homeschooler" but that's why I generally make my own.

I never watched the movie, is this scene from the end, after she has been married a few years?

How about choosing a costume that suits you best?

I'm not in shape and have the start of a beer belly. My costume this year? Sex Robot from WKUK

/Do you wanna get down?

FTFC: To be fair, wouldn't a fat, "sexy ursula", just be a regular ursula.

Or you can work with what ya got. My GF is biggish girl. If she's going sexy there's gonna be a corset in there somewhere. And it can be devastating.

I'm confused how this is a problem. It sounds wonderful.

I think that's by design.
 
2012-10-09 10:18:58 AM
Well yeah... Duh? Is this even a discussion? It is a "sexy" costume.

Last time I checked, fat people aren't sexy. I'm not saying you can't be beautiful In your own right...

...You just can't be beautiful wrapped in a purple and black king-sized bed sheet.
 
2012-10-09 10:19:40 AM
I bet if I put on weight no one would want to see me run around as Tarzan.

They probably don't to see me do it now either, unless I put on a different kind if weight.
 
2012-10-09 10:21:06 AM
I understand the wanting to be sexy part, but the creepy part is things like male characters and inanimate objects.

Sexy Ariel? Fine, she wears a bikini (and is even naked in the film!) Sexy Gaston, not so much. Sexy crayon? WTF is wrong with you!

Why can't there just be good costumes for women? No everyone can be a "sexy" something so why subject the rest of us to it?

I like that you make your own, but I also like pants-less. Hmm.

Does b*tching and moaning burn calories? Because then your problems would be over.

Guy costumes: Zombie, Ghost, Vampire ....
Women costumes: Sexy zombie, sexy ghost, sexy vampire ...

This isn't good if you live in a cold climate or would just like an interesting costume. Nothing wrong with sexy costumes. But it would be nice to have more options for women. The costume in this article is pretty cute.
 
2012-10-09 10:26:14 AM

Sybarite: Yes, because that's the only one you could possibly buy.



No no, you don't understand: the advertisement article says right here that it's actually really hard to find an Ursula costume for plus-sized women. It must be true because someone said it in an article on the internet!


Heads up - if you're a fat woman who wants to dress up as a popular fat character for Halloween, good luck trying to find a plus-size Ursula (from "The Little Mermaid") costume.

Maybe you shouldn't string them that tight. That way the devastation will be limited when the corset snaps open.

Having fatties in your sexy Halloween costumes kind of destroys the public perception of them as sexy.
 
2012-10-09 10:36:34 AM
I'm not really very PC, but it is a legitimate gripe if a costume meant to portray an obese person is made such that fat people can't wear it. I realize in this case it is the "sexy" version, but still it is a pretty blatant slight.

Sexy is a subjective term. Most people equate being thin and fit with being sexy and being fat as much the opposite. Despite what some large body image proponents might have to say; fat is not sexy. No matter how happy and well adjusted you may be with yourself, if you are fat you are not sexy.

So? Fat people don't have feelings like you and me.

I almost cried when I saw the Old Navy commercial for "Skinny jeans for people of all sizes!" with the Backstreet Boys.

Skinny jeans were a line of defense against fatties, no longer. Some things are not meant for anyone.

/skinny jeans are also only for wormen
 
2012-10-09 10:41:04 AM
"it also tells fat women that in order to be sexy, a character must be made skinny."

Bags of antlers? Not sexy.

Sacks of lard? Not sexy.

Enough to get a grip on but not enough to wobble? Just right.

Boy was i right!

I'm sorry, is there a different sexy costumes thread going on right now? Is that why this one is so boring and img-free?
