Cosplay Stock Photo: Plus Size Lolita in Pink Shoes
$5.00 – $25.00 or ( 5 Credits - 25 Credits )
A plus size black woman stands in a bedroom next to a bed and dresser. She has bare legs and is wearing lacy ankle socks and pearly pink patent high-heeled shoes. Her teddy bear leans against her ankle, and there’s a peek of her pink poodle purse.
Since specialty clothing such as lolita wear is particularly hard to find in plus sizes, she’s understandably proud of her diligence and hard work in putting these outfits together. The photo speaks not only to the ingenuity of plus size women in expressing their fashion senses, but in the dearth of fast fashion, fancy dress, cosplay, costumes, loli, and other niche and subculture clothing available to this market.
This photo is part of a set of images that show that sometimes self-care means treating ourselves — not only to a sweet dessert, but to what our inner selves desire. And sometimes, for some people, that means a day of bubble-gum colors, pretty dresses, dress up and make believe.
