If fat people spent half the time they spent whining about "discrimination" on working to not be a fatty, they would not be fat.

This is almost as bad as the fat news anchor attention whoring for sympathy because some guy emailed her saying if she lost weight, she could be inspiration for many people to do the same.

Is that chocolate sauce around her lips?


I don't know. I bet she'd let you take a taste to find out ;)

They do have a point - the character is fat, and it's not like they don't make plus sized costumes.
On the other hand, a plus sized Ursula costume is just an Ursula costume.

Not a fan of obese people who act like it's fine to be that way.

Ursula wasn't a slightly overweight person. She was an obeast. She was drawn to be a big, lard-assed monster. Anyone who dresses up as her should be embarrassed if they didn't need some padding to fill the costume.

Most of the world sees our country as fat asses, and this is part of the problem. Fat people here actually complain that there aren't enough things made for fat people. Lose some damn weight.

They are a business.
There isn't much demand for "slutty fat chick" costumes.
 
2012-10-09 11:20:49 AM  
Whatever, fatties. When I get a dress shirt (or most t-shirts) I need an XS, which is pretty much unavailable everywhere, but you better believe all places will carry XL, if not XXL and XXXL. I don't write a pathetic blog post about it, I go to another store, or I deal with the size S shirt.

it also tells fat women that in order to be sexy, a character must be made skinny.


Oh my God... the "everyone is beautiful including fat people" movement is actually gaining traction. We need to nip this shiat in the bud, now. The only thing worse than a fat person is a confident fat person.

Now, now... let's not forget there are plenty of sexy plus sized costumes and models in them. "Fat" is a very wide definition, no pun intended:

I'm fairly sure I'd hit every one on that page...
...and Red Riding Hood twice.

2012-10-09 12:08:44 PM  
I keep checking back for proper well proportioned plus sized models in hot costumes. I may make some contributions after work.
 
2012-10-09 12:19:04 PM  
Sorry fatties, maybe next time try a salad and exercise and you wouldn't have to complain about something so stupid and insignificant. I have NO pity for people in a situation that is totally in their control -- the ball is in your court, either you do something about your weight and feel good about it, or you make excuses for why you can't or aren't losing weight. It's as simple as that.

Nope. She just got done ATMing Matt when he finished banging Froy.

Fatties have many other costume choices, like Jabba the Hut, or one of the many species of Cetaceans...

I'm tired of people biatching that "the media is telling fat women that they have to be skinny to be sexy!!!". It's not the media, it's biology. Fat women are not sexy.
 
2012-10-09 02:26:02 PM  
If I remember, the character of Ursula was inspired in part by Divine. So are these ladies complaining that they can't dress up like a plus-sized drag queen?

About fifteen years ago at a local science fiction convention masquerade show, a mid-life, obsese woman brought down the house with her Ursula costume and song and dance routine. It was literally amazing, and not because of a spectacle of the grotesque. The costume was perfect and apparently she'd worked quite hard to get it that way, getting the tentacles to move properly with the routine and everything.

Surprisingly she beat the "Little Red Riding Hood Revisited", which was a 19 year old hottie in a borderline burlesque little red riding hood outfit with her own routine. This was before the current crop of re-imagined fairy tales.

Freudian_slipknot: 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'm OK with this.

cgraves67: As a fatty, I'd have to say that I'm ok with sexy costumes only being available to skinnies.

I'll have to second that. I'm not like hover round fat or anything but I have no dilusions that people would want to see me in something skimpy or skin tight.
 
2012-10-09 03:51:23 PM  
Shame needs to make a comeback. As someone who needs to lose 25-30 pounds, no one wants to see our figures on display unless it's for comedic purposes. Deal with it or lose weight.
