The Roly fucking Polies!!
Why yes someone did make me mad today.
Don’t fetishize my body type. Don’t dictate how I should feel about myself and how I should present myself to society in order to be deemed fuckable.
Thank you! This is kind of what I was trying to say before (except not about sex). It feels worse when it comes from other fat girls though.
nervoustwitch asked: I just ordered my copy! this will be the first zine I have ever bought / read :D!!!
Cool! Kirsty is a total mega babe! x
Okay, so I went and got my zines from the printer today! This is awesome, and calls for a cheesy grin of EPIC PROPORTIONS. Also, I am wearing my best ever thrifted t-shirt today, so yeah, good time.
You can buy them here, or alternatively send your email address to my “ask” box (with the country you are based in), and I’ll send you a paypal invoice. If you’re coming to the Leeds clothes swap (details here for that), you’ll also be able to buy it there for £2 (without having to pay for postage and so on)
Here’s some details for you:
This is a copy of my first zine, “Make It Work”. Make It Work is a radical fat positive zine centred around DIY fatshion and craft projects. It contains a mixture of personal pieces, tutorials, craft tips, guides to pattern upsizing, event organising and some fairly bad art. Contributors are awesome people from the fat-o-sphere including me (from Fatty Unbound), Bronny (from Fat Aus), Brenda Jean (from The Busty Traveler), Charlotte Cooper (activist extraordinaire!) and lots more.
“Make It Work” has been a mantra within fatshion communities since I can remember, and I’m interested in exploring it as a radical premise of fat positive politics. Fat people have and have always had very limited options in ready-made clothing, and, whilst retailers are starting to produce more on trend pieces, the process is slow and in the meantime, we have to come up with our own radical alternatives – whether it’s making clothes, thrifting, altering clothes or making straight sizes work for us. This zine is about sharing the resources, skills and knowledge that we’ve gained, and for it to provide strategies for people to move forward with.
Half size (A5) with 48 pages total. The zine is hand typed and has a medium pink card cover. Staple binding.
Please reblog to get the word out there! K xx
Buy this!! Do it now so that it sells out, Kirsty is amazing!!!
