I'm just a fat gal with a blog and an opinion. Well, lots of opinions.

Two Piggies & A Pug!


Yep, that’s my little Puggyman, checkin’ out the the piggies I just received from Amanda of FatWaitress & LoveYourBodyDetroit! One is for moi! The other I get to decorate and send back to her for some serious fat activism for Love Your Body Day! Yay!

So adorable and fun! Purple tu-tu? Yes, please! I don’t yet know how I will be decorating my pig, but I’m excited for the challenge and opportunity to do so! I will of course take plenty o’ pictures when it’s completed to share here with you lovelies! Any suggestions on decorating it?

    You can never go wrong with florescent paint with glowing the dark accents. Oh and about a crap tone of glitter, sequins and some feathers just to round it out. It works for all them folks on etsy.. Just saying.

    @Raven: Hmm…yes on the glitter, not sure about feathers. It’s a big porcelain piggy with silver coating. My first idea is to use paint/glitter to section up the pig like they do for cuts of meat, but inside the “sections” would be body positive words. Still figuring it out, but open to more ideas!

    I still says feathers are the way to go, consider a peacock feather mohawk.

    @Raven: I like the mohawk idea! Thanks!

    That is a really neat idea. The sectioning works on multiple levels too. I wish we had things like this going on in the south 🙂

    @E. Ai B.: Yes, for me the sectioning of fake piggy flesh brings so many political messages to mind. I hope i can figure it out. Ha! As for Love Your Body Detroit? That is a nearly one-woman show! Amanda Levitt is an amazing woman! But her passion and creativity push her out of the norm and into these activism opportunities. If you’re interested in doing your own group where you live, contact her! I have no doubt that she’d be happy to help or offer advice. <3

    It would be awesome to do a group down here. They say everything is bigger in Texas, but holy crap where is everyone hiding? I feel like the only one my size, and certainly the only body-positive one around these parts. *tumbleweeds**

    @E. Ai B.: Are you a member of the LiveJournal Fatshionista Community? If not, join and then post about any fellow Texans who’d like to meet up or do a swap! It can be very informal or huge, up to you. But that, I think, is the best place to start. It’s where I got my fat activist training wheels.
