So, you may have noticed over the past month or so, I have started blogging again. I am finally starting to feel a little better and honestly, more apt to handle it, which wasn’t necessarily the case in the past 6 months or so. I started eating disorder recovery, and all of the things that go along with that. It’s been a LOT, but I am so thankful to all of those close to me that have been so incredibly supportive.
You might have also noticed that I’ve started to shift gears into turning E-Rad’s Cantina into a geek fashion (and sometimes cosplay) blog. Eeeeeeee (exciting stuff). I mean, fashion is where my heart lies. I work for a fashion company, I spend all day looking at clothes, I’m learning to sew so I can start contributing custom pieces to this industry (lol, jk, my closet). I just love it so much.
I also think that there is a place for me in it. During this journey, I’ve started to learn and accept some truths. My body is bigger. That is A-Ok. Bigger bodies are a big part (no pun intended, ha!) of this world, and I wish they were represented more. I think I am ready to start doing my part in embracing myself and putting myself out there. If I want to see more representation, why not add myself to it? BRING ON THE BODY POSITIVE HASHTAGS.
Due to my insecurities, I’ve kept fashion posts on this blog limited in the past (and I skipped cosplaying altogether). Historically, I’ve either used my friends as models or I will occasionally use myself (but it’s been a struggle every time). I’m ready to move forward from that. So, brace yourselves! There’s going to be a LOT more fashiony, body positive posts in the future AND PERSONALLY, I CAN’T WAIT.
There are about a thousand other things I’ve picked up in the last 8 or 9 months that have been slowly changing my life, and I can’t wait to share these little nuggets as I go along. In the meantime, have a wonderful holiday break, and I will talk to you soon <3
