    Although a video game, I felt it related enough to post it onto this thread

    "Fat Princess" - 2009
    A new take on a multi-player capture the flag / take and hold style battle game. The Blue team has kidnapped Princess Plump (the Red Princess), and likewise the Red team has kidnapped Princess Muffintop (the Blue Princess). Players will select their character class and head out into battle in a rather gruesome attempt to rescue their princess from the opposing team's dungeon, and safely return her to her rightful throne.
    The catch is, aside from bolstering their castle's defenses, the opposing team can stuff your princess with cake, making her grow, and increasingly harder to rescue. But don't worry, you can do the same thing to their princess in your dungeon.

    I can name off quite a few examples if video games count.

    Fat Princess was the GUILTIEST pleasure for me back when I was a closeted FA!

    I never killed any players in-game. I just kept the princesses happy ;)

    Well all righty then.

    Wen Kinoc and Gatta in Final Fantasy X
    Smough in Dark Souls
    Boraicho in Mortal Kombat
    The fat mermaid, several peasants, and most of the merchants in Okami
    Marilyn in Paper Mario 2 (crushed on that purple circle hard when I was little)
    Like half the male NPCs in The Godfather

    Plus most western-style RPGs these days let you alter your character’s body type within a fairly wide range, particularly Dragon’s Dogma and Fallout 4 as recent examples.

    Yeah watched that movie Dumplin' on Friday - quite a hoot! Danielle is great in this one, as is another young fat gal named Maddie Baillio, who I think is a real scene stealer on this show! BUT there is another young lady, who has a bit role, but shines brighter than all in this movie. She is an aspiring comedian/actress named Hilliary Begley - a true beauty (hoping to see a lot more of her in the future)

    Back in the day (Feb 1989 to be exact) was an inspiring made for TV movie called "Baby Cakes" in which the studly young man fell for the fat girl (played by Ricki Lake). As a 19 year old closeted FA at the time, this movie certainly represented a hope for realizing my own desires.

    ETA : see earlier post on this thread from RAVFA also mentions this movie Babycakes, which is actually a remake of a movie called Zuckerbaby, starring the German actress Marianne Sagebrecht.

    I don’t care about the Avengers but fat Thor...that’s pretty phenomenal



    It’s portrayed negatively but that’s what a Norse god should look like imho. I’m having Viking fantasies all of a sudden.

    I am big time crushing on ólafur darri ólafsson in Trapped, which just happens to be a good detective show starring a genuine BHM.

    Saw the trailer for Brittany Runs a Marathon today. Looks interesting. Totally clueless about Ms. Bell (as the titular Brittany), I was intrigued that she appeared to undergo a remarkable physical transformation from overweight to more slender in this upcoming, "inspirational," "crowd-pleasing" Rom-Com. Turns out she wore a "fat suit" for the role.

    Amazing to me that, in this day and age, Hollywood is still casting heavily made up (no pun intended) actors and actresses instead of hiring The Real Thing . . . or at least performers willing to be more authentic (e.g., Robert De Niro in Raging Bull and Toni Collette in Muriel's Wedding, both of who packed on the pounds for their roles). Imagine in 2019 putting ofays in "blackface" or passing British round-eyes as Orientals (Yoo-hoo, Tilda Swinton!).

    But, that's the "magic of the movies," I guess.

    Age of X-Men: Xtremists features the Blob as the leader. He costumes consists of a top that remains open and shows skin and his tummy which tells me he is confident in himself. (BTW don't know if comic books were allowed to be included.)

    He’s one of my favorite BHM actors right now! I really enjoyed watching him as the love interest on Maria Bamford’s show Lady Dynamite. I kind of resemble Maria which made it easy to imagine myself in her place. I haven’t watched Trapped yet but I’ll get around to it eventually.

    There was one season of a "Bachelor" type show with one FA and a dozen or so BBW's as contestants. Where do I sign up for Season 2?

    There was a movie called "Dogfight" where a group of soldiers have a cruel contest to see who can bring the "ugliest" date to a party. The women don't know they are the object of the joke until the winner is chosen at the end. I'm pretty sure at least one of the dates was a BBW.

    There was a series about a law firm where Camryn Manheim played a lawyer where her size was an important character point. She tells a great story in her book about the first day of filming where the set dresser had put a jar of candy on the "fat girl's" desk. She immediately removed it and put in a drawer and had to explain to the set dresser that a fat woman would be the LAST person to display a jar of candy on her desk.

    The law firm series was "The Practice" - a great show, made better by Camryn's character, Ellenor Frutt.
