901  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: Chubby Cheerleaders on: February 28, 2006 06:19:35 PM
Woohoo! Thanks for the support! Yeah, I am pretty poor, so buying a real cheerleading uniform is probably out of my league. We have a friend who used to be a seamstress, so I am banking on bribing her to help us out a little with costume design and sewing.

Oddly enough, I am excited about trying to squeeze my fat butt into a cheerleading outfit. The part I'm quite nervous about is the actual cheerleading. I have never done anything remotely like cheerleading, unless you count mocking the Spartan Spirit routines with my sister during the SNL commercial breaks.

I was inspired by this Web site http://www.fatasspdx.com/ to start a radical cheerleading group for fat girls in my own town! I'm not sure if those girls are still an active group (quite a few outdated links on the ol' Web site...) but I think it is one of the best ideas I've seen in a long time Smiley

So, that being said, I thought I'd post on here to see:

a) if anyone here has been involved with radical cheerleading groups and could give me some tips on writing cheers and/or performing

and... on a more crafty note:

b) Does anyone have any awesome ideas for cheerleading outfits? Obviously, we're going to have to make our own because I kind of doubt you can get them at the uniform store in a size 24 or higher. Wink

Let the brainstorming begin!
903  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: Whats your size/challenge? on: February 27, 2006 12:05:25 PM
A friend of mine once told me that she sometimes cuts the tags out of her clothes so that she doesn't have to look at the size every day. I think that getting rid of that stupid label inside your clothes is an awesome idea. Sure the tag is necessary in the store to give you an idea of what size you should maybe try on, but once you have determined that it fits and you take it home, do you really need to look at it every day to remind yourself?

Everyone should be able to wear clothes that fit and look good on their body, whatever size it is, without having to look at that constant little reminder of how big or small you are compared to everyone else. Sometimes, I wish that I would have saved all the energy I ever spent worrying about clothes shopping so that I could use it now get more reading, writing and crafting done now Wink

Two shots of Mr. Expletive before his journey to Canada! This guy is a little superhero with the amazing power to scream obscenities for you, when it is socially unacceptable for you to blurt them out yourself. He doesn't know anything about aromatherapy, but still his capacity for stress relief has astounded many since his creation just a few short weeks ago.

Hooray! I'm glad that Mr. E arrived safe and sound. Before he made his way to you, he came with me to work, as well, to help out with some particularly difficult folks I'd been dealing with on the phone. I took some portrait shots that make him look rather dashing, so I'll post those when I get home tonight!

I'm so glad that you liked your package! It was fun being your SA Smiley

But hey, cuvy girls are awesome, right?

Yes! Curvy girls *are* awesome! I have been doing some research for the current fat girl swap and I'm finding all sorts of inspiration and drumming up some personal enthusiasm for the beauty and general kick-butt nature of chubby women. I found one slogan that I liked in particular: Be the girl you are, not the doll you're sold Smiley

I thought I might as well post something in here 'cause, although I sympathize with all the small and/or tall people who can't find good clothes, I miss the comments from the short, chubby ladies! I am 5'6" and I probably weigh about 265 (Scales are against my religion, so I don't know for sure... why would you own something that has only one purpose: to make you feel "fat"? Useless!) I usually wear about a 22 or 24 by most major clothing retailer standards, and yet my bust is comparatively small, so all the shirts out there made to fit right around my belly end up looking a tad bit floppy on the top, which sucks because it would be nice to flatter that area of my body a bit more on occassion. ...which brings me to my next gripe--I wish I could sew something cooler than pillows so that I could fix stuff up to look the way I want it.

My brag is that I really don't care what size something is... if it fits and it looks cute it's meant to be! Also, if it doesn't fit, it's not 'cause I'm too fat... the damned thing is just too small Wink

I am going to try and make an adaptation on the knifty knitter... wish me luck! If it turns out, I will try to post some instructions. Smiley

I long time ago, I bought some awesome stripey knee-hi socks at Torrid and then I have never seen them again. Since then, I have whined and whined about not being able to find cute socks that fit my calves, and then a couple of weeks ago, I stumbled upon the sock mecca: www.sock-dreams.com

If you do a "quick search" for plus-sized socks, it comes up with some of the larger and/or stretchier socks in their stock. Each sock page has a description with about how big around it would fit comfortably, so it was easy for me to pick socks that would likely fit just fine. I highly reccommend the "super stripes" line and the military boot socks in medium (she says on the site that the mediums are stretchier than the large). I'm about 22" around just below my knee and both of those fit over my legs snug, but in a comfortable not-going-to-fall off kind of way. *hooray for cute socks!*
