Bustle magazine released a list of 9 Nerdy Plus Size Costumes that are easy to do, but when you look at the list you see that Bustle listed 9 easy costumes, and locations to find a plus size version of the look.
What I got from this list: Someone at Bustle knows (kind of) how to google. The first costume on the list is the 11th Doctor, from Doctor Who - and their suggestions on how to make this costume completely ignores the fact that all the pieces are available from HotTopic (going up to size 3x). The next costumes make even less sense: there's Harley Quinn from the Suicide Squad movie, followed by Star Wars' Princess Leia, Star Trek's Dr. Crusher, and Gandalf (WHAT?!)
Honestly, the entire thing sounds like a mom tried to google some solutions for their teenager and missed the mark completely.
What I wanted from this list: Plus Size Characters and how to dress as them!
Give me an easy Princess Fiona, Warrior Fiona. Show me how to do Meg from Family Guy on the cheap. Feature the many ways to wear Purple from Lumpy Space Princess to Ursula to Amethyst from Steven Universe.
As we get closer to Halloween, The Fat Girl Show plans to provide you with better suggestions and solutions. Comment below with characters YOU want to dress as!
