When I dyed my hair bright red, I joked about the “Little Mermaid realness” I was serving. After a year hiatus from performing, a producer asked me to revive my burlesque act. I had no idea what I wanted to do, but I joked about doing a Little Mermaid bit and it killed. So, I got to work on the costuming and started impersonating Ariel.
But the mermaid costume was only a jumping off point. I kept making burlesque costumes, including bras that were too beautiful to cover up. I’ve made several different styles, debuting them in a runway show and modeling them with a burlesque photographer. As a fat person, dressing in revealing, larger-than-life garments is so liberating to me.

I never fit into any American Apparel clothes, but this swimsuit went on sale, and, in a moment of feeling fabulous, I took the risk. :D
I love the Tumblr body positive community! The language here is so intentional and beautiful! As I move around, some places seem really open to talking about mental and physical health, bodies, love and food; while others get uncomfortable and shut the topics out. But the internet is always here!

The studded epaulets and black boyfriend blazer deliver a 1-2 punch to my ASOS lacey sequin dress and thigh-his, spiking my gutter glamour with some serious attitude. And the hem of my dress only brushes the top of my stockings, daring to bare my thighs while staying covered up (even if it is sheerly) nearly everywhere else.

Hiii, my name is Jessica-ann!
I’m a island girl from Florida and I have just recently fully fallen in love with my body. I am a US size 16, and I’m 5’11”. I have learned that no one can make me feel inferior to them without my permission. So, who cares if someone calls me fat, I love my body and who I am and no one can make me feel otherwise. Every body is a beautiful body.
