Models Wanted ...
Rebecca of Chubbypigeon designs sexy costumes and hats, mostly victorian and burlesque, and photographs the big bold sexy women who wear them. Her work, both the hats and costumes and the photographs are fantastic. A true work of art.
Many of her models are self-conscience about their size even though in our (SSBBWs) eyes we would probably not understand this as much. She would love to work with some larger models so if you are in the Los Angeles area and would be interested in finding out more information, please contact her.
If you live in Los Angeles and are interested in being part of this project or even if you do not live in Los Angeles but are still interested in her work or being a part of her vision please email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please visit her site at www.chubbypigeon.com for more information.
ChubbyPigeon Mission Statement:
When I was in 6th grade there was a boy in my glass named Darren Musto. I have a very poor memory yet somehow I will forever remember this kids name. Like most girls, I met puberty much sooner then the boys in my class and for me this meant being about 2 feet taller then most of them. I also developed hips, tits, and ass much younger as I was blessed to have the family chubby gene. This kid Darren would stand behind me in the hallway as we pilled into class and mutter the word ĎAMAZONí in my ear. At the time I had no idea what it meant but it didnít sound pleasing. I wanted so badly to be shorter that I would often stand hunched over with both kneecaps bent in a vain attempt to appear shorter. When I look back on my adolescent pictures now I simply look like I had some type of physical defect. Ah those were the awkward days of puberty. As I grew older I discovered the origin of this word. Amazon: a notably tall, physically strong or strong willed woman. I am 5í11. Yes I am tall and yes I am chubby. It didnít take long for me to appreciate what this meant. In our society tits come in very handy. As John Waters once wrote Ďthe first thing a woman learns is that tits are a weapon, if youíve got em stick em out.í
About four years ago my depression soared and I began to doubt everything beautiful about my body. I found my weight to be my enemy, my tits and ass too big, my age too old, and in general I was just fat. I found myself hating skinny girls because it appeared to be what everyone found attractive. The fact is I can never be skinny, small, or younger. I am not a girl who giggles or asks questions I know the answers to to make other people feel smart, yet I found myself contemplating these horrific acts. I started therapy, worked on and continue working through these challenges and now think fuck it. I am not an advocate of American plastic surgery and view the act as another component to the hyper capitalism fear of death oppression and expectations women in this society fall victim to. So, I squatted and out came the egg that cracked open into Chubby Pigeon. My goal with Chubby Pigeon is to photograph 100 women, women of all shapes. I want to combine my millinery hobby with period costumes that will accent bodies and make women feel beautiful. I want to compile all of this and show it off to anyone who appreciates women for who they are, not who they are told to be. As women in this society we are exploited, pitted against each other, oppressed, and are given a list of unattainable expectations by men who hold over us an ideal that I have never found attractive. So here it is, Chubby Pigeon, welcome to my nest.
