Wow. I’m sure you’ve all seen this girl’s fantastic tardis dress floating around here the last week or so. She hand painted the inside and everything, and she just looks plain great. But of course, I see it posted on facebook, and the slew of comments begin.
I don’t think it’s a mystery as to why I, as a bigger girl, spend the week before a convention crying because I’m so nervous about what people are going to say about me just because I want to dress up and have fun like everyone else. And there is something really, really fucking wrong with that.
This girl is as beautiful as she is clever! If we on Tumblr are only good for one thing, it’s turning situations like this around! Let’s signal boost this and get it back to her so she knows how much we love it! ALLONZ-Y
Some people need a reality check preferably with a baseball bat THIS IS FUCKING AWESOME and she is gorgeous.
So this girl puts tons of work into this dress, hand paints it, looks 50000000% adorable in it, and posts pictures of it because she is so very proud of her work. As she should be. And then these people come along and put her down - because “oh no!” How dare someone **NOT** have a tiny body frame? What the heck is that crud anyway!?
Usually I would just reblog without comment, but those comments were really unnecessary. She looks stunning and those people are more envious of her awesomesaucitiness than anything else.
My favorite is the bottom one because of how clearly it exemplifies that women absolutely can not win in geek culture, because here she is “called to task” for not being sexy, but if she was wearing a sexy tardis dress you can be sure the comments would be instead about how she’s using it for attention and is obviously not a “real” geek.
This is the most impressive shit I have ever seen and her weight does not affect that in the fucking least YOU GO GIRL
I’ve got to say, as a bigger built woman, reading shit like what was thrown at her, makes me not want to bother dressing up. And if I did at all, I most certainly would not make my photos public to people because of fear of this. I take my hat off to you, hun, that you did this, and I hope all those negative comments haven’t stopped you dressing up at cons.
