Dwarf lolita, guys. Think of the potential.
What could you call it though? Dwarf Kei? Khazad Pretty? I don’t know, but it would be AWESOME.

Beards, battleaxes, and fluffy skirts - what’s not to love!?

Support AquaPorko! 

These ladies are in ur pool, being fat at u.  They’re brave, strong, and graceful, and every last one of them is stunningly beautiful, inside and out. Knowing them for the last two years has been one of the greatest joys in my life.  

Kelli-Jean Drinkwater is making - almost has made - a film about AquaPorko, and hopes to have it ready to premiere at the Sydney Mardi Gras Film Festival and then show at the Melbourne Queer Film Festival. 

Fat women, synchronised swimming.  You guys, you don’t know it yet, but you need this in your life. 

(This link is to Kelli-Jean’s Pozible fundraiser, where she is asking for support to finish the film - and there are gifts, DVDs and T-shirts for supporters. But even if you can’t or don’t want to financially support, watch the video anyway, because it’s great. And tell your friends!)  

Va Va Boombah 2 promises to be even better than the first one.  I can’t wait!
