Dearest Curvy Community and our Fabulous Friends and Allies! I am so excited about inviting Substantia Jones of the Adipositivity Project and Kelly Shibari, the first ever BBW Model in Penthouse Magazine, to Curvy Girl. I defintely need your social network, sponsors and your FIERCE FATTIES Network to make this happen!
www.Adipositivity.com is Substantia's amazing website all about her photo fat activism - in case you are not familiar with her work. FIERCE. FAT. SEXY. POIGNANT. VULNERABLE. HONEST. MYSTERIOUS. RAW. BOLD. BEAUTIFUL are ways I would describe her photos. And, trust me, I am not even being dramatic or exaggerating here. If you love fat bodies, you will adore her work. You may even see your body in her work. CHECK IT OUT! STAT!
From Substantia's website : "Click here for "Naked Fat Ladies. And Dudes. And Transgender People.And Couples." NSFW
We are going to need everyone's help with the sponsorship. Please share this project with your tribe.
We have a blockbuster weekend planned starting on Saturday the 27th. We are having an extra special event with Substantia signing her Adipositivity Calendars and Kelly Shibari signing her Penthouse magazines. Two DYNAMIC and FIERCE FATTIES in one event all at Curvy Girl Lingerie on Saturday night. You may know that Kelly Shibari is the First Ever Plus-Size Model in Penthouse. You may also remember that Kelly was at Curvy GIrl about 2 years ago for a Blowjob Seminar and another time to debut her "Guide to Wicked Sex : Plus Size Sex" DVD in 2015. She is also featured in the 2016 Adipositivity Calendar again.
We will have Kelly's Penthouse magazines and Substantia's 2016 calendar for sale that night and you can meet them both, take some selfies, enjoy some refreshments and get their autograph.
***Edited Feb. 18th: This MEET and GREET will be filmed for our t.v. show Plus Life. If you attend our Meet & Greet, but prefer to NOT be filmed, we will have NAME TAGS for you to wear so that when we are editing any footage we use for our t.v. show we can EDIT out our BLUR out anyone wearing a name badge. Thanks!
Then, on Sunday and Monday, Substantia will be photographing lots of you lovely, generous, gorgeous humans. (ALL Fat people who are interested in being photographed schedule a shoot on the TICKET link.) You can schedule a shoot with Substantia for the 28th or the 29th. All photos will be taken in the San Jose and Campbell area. There are 14 spots total. They will go fast. PLEASE ONLY TAKE A SPOT IF YOU ARE 100% SERIOUS. Substantia will be in touch shortly after you book your slot.
We would love your help with the cost of this project and bringing Substantia to San Jose. However, there is absolutely no obligation to make a donation.
And, if you want to come and mingle with us on Saturday the 27th, stop by our boutique. We will be there 6 to 8pm. Everyone is welcome. We will have some light refreshments and the calendar and magazines for sale.
