Cardigan: Avenue sz. 18/20
Shirt: Avenue sz. 18/20
Jeans: Merona sz. 22
Shoes: Dansko sz. 42 (US 11)

I walked into a nearby Avenue last month to find just about the entire store was in Winter Clearance Mode. I got hearts in my eyes.


Sunglasses: Don’t know
Shirt: Avenue sz. 18/20
Shorts: Avenue sz. 20
Sandals: Avenue sz. 11

I bought these shorts on a whim and was surprised at how short they were on me.  Still, body acceptance is about pushing one’s comfort zones, so I wore them several times.  I would look down and see legs as far as the eye could see.  This t-shirt is incredible, and one of my favorites.  It’s actually made of a slightly thicker material than regular t-shirts, so I wear it pretty much year-round.

I’ve actually had this drawn and inked for months, but since the t-shirt has such a detailed design, I didn’t get a chance to sit down with it and make sure I drew it accurately.


My bridesmaid’s dress from my sister’s wedding.

Dress: David’s Bridal sz. 18 (I think; this is when I was a slightly smaller fat)
Jewelry: don’t remember… maybe Claire’s?
Shoes: Invisible, but I’m wearing the white ballet flats from this OOTD.

Damn, I loved the hell out of that dress.  I replicated it as best I could with the greens I had, but the wedding colors were sage and silver, so my dress was a more muted, cool green called “celadon."  Here’s a color-adjusted version that’s a bit closer:


I didn’t want to overwork the coloring too much, otherwise I might’ve attempted to replicate these colors on the actual paper.  The brighter version really does convey the beauty of the dress effectively, as well as makes me look like the Frog Princess!


Subtle Fat Activism

I took my art supplies and laptop into work with me Wednesday night, since I was coming from my weekly Sunday Comix meeting and wasn’t comfortable leaving them in the car all night.  At lunchtime, when I took out some of my things to draw, I let one of my coworkers flip through my sketchbook when he flipped to the drawing I did for Fat Wonder Woman.

The look on his face was pretty priceless.  He paused for a second then said, “Um… it’s Wonder Woman…”

Yes. Yes it is.


This OOTD is actually of my sister on her wedding day, which I made her as a birthday present. ^_^

Dress: David’s Bridal
Veil, Bouquet, Hairpins: eBay
Jewelry: Don’t know.
Sandals: Birkenstocks, because my sister is that awesome.

Coming soon: an OOTD of my Maid of Honor dress. :D


Here are the color versions I decided on for my FA button set!

1. Argyle. It is awesome.

2. These will be debuting this weekend at Bodyslam!, put on by Love Your Body Detroit.

3. I have no idea what to expect, but I’m going to test out OOTD prints as well.  Just some of my favorites, and a few copies of each at that.

4.  The buttons, at least, will go up in the store next week!

After this very strenuous work week, I am really looking forward to the weekend.


Outfit from 2.4.2011

Shirt: Gifted, Target
Hoodie: Merona
Tie: Loaned
Jeans: Avenue
Kneepads: Lowe’s (hardware store)
Shoes: Dansko

OKAY. This hot look requires BACKSTORY.

So I’ve been working overnights for the last month, since the store I work in is being remodeled and they need extra help and HEY more money because of the shift differential.  Last Thursday night I was dicking around on Facebook before work when I see a post by one of my daytime coworkers proclaiming that Fridays henceforth would be Anti-Casual Friday, and we should all don our professional attire instead.  I commented that if I had a red tie, I would’ve totally donned it at midnight to join in.

Cut to 10:30 when my shift started, and my other coworker, Mark, brought a tie for me to wear! As well as one for himself, as he’d also seen the exchange on Facebook.

So this is my Anti-Casual Friday OOTD.  No, really.


Check out those sexy kneepads.

I’m arting as hard as I can!

Never fear, my lovelies.  I have gotten three new OOTDs drawn tonight!  Just have to color them in the morning when I get home from work. XD

I have no idea if I’ll get around to drawing things for Alex’s Guide (I need a new header and promo art and such) but this is really fun anyway.

FAT. Fat fat fat faaaaaat. I love my fat!
