tres huevos said:A bit more info: Kelligirl posed for the cover of BUF (a defunct bbw mag) in 1994, unnamed, with no accompanying photos inside the magazine. Readers freaked over her, but BUF, never exactly super-communicative with readers, stayed mum. That was it for 4 years until she popped up on the Weight Board, 100 pounds heavier, with her website and fanzine. She disappeared again in 2001, so she's due for a return any minute, provided the rumors of divine ascension or WLS aren't true.
Like many on this board, I was lightly singed by her disappearance - she still owes me 2 or 3 issues of Bulge. All will be forgiven though if she posts a current picture of herself at 600 pounds.

To answer your question, Voidhead, Kelligrrl was somewhat of a pioneer for us. When I first came around here in 1999, there weren't many women who maintained personal websites, but she was one of them, and her weight gain was certainly a treat for all of us.
HOWEVER, she also ran a subscription magazine called Bulge. This was before the golden age of paysites, it was a different time back then. Anyway, Bulge had many subscribers, and all of them lost money when Kelligrrl decided to disappear off the face of the earth. Without warning, she closed her site, stopped putting our her magazine, and none of her customers were refunded.
At least that's what I remember, I was never a customer. She was pretty and some of her pictures were mezmerizing, but that all goes out the window when she virtually robbed her customers. Be thankful that we have the Big Cuties and the Big Fat Chics and the BBW Pinup girls and our collective Goddesses and everyone else and forget about Kelligrrl...Dimensions has moved on and upward without her.
Yes, that was too bad. Unfortunately, such sudden disappearing acts are not uncommon. In Kelligrl's case it's too bad I never featured her in Dimensions while she was around. The same goes for Brooke who twice inquired about being in Dimensions before she suddenly disappeared. The worst disappearing act, as many oldtime Dimensions visitors will recall, was when my own webmistress, Dani, suddenly disappeared without a trace. That was especially bad because she was the only one who had most of the admin passwords for the site, and she had been responsible for all the systems and code. So, apart from being quite concerned about what might have happened to her, the site took a huge hit. I also had considered her a friend, and felt quite betrayed.UncannyBruceman said:....Without warning, she closed her site....
Exactly. We've got so many more gorgeous gals feeding our fantasies (pun intended) that I often forget that Kelligrrl even had a webpage. You can find relics of her and Bulge all over Yahoo Groups, but you don't see too many people coming around asking about her, or expressing how much they miss her.Obesus said:Bully good attitude there! I think you hit the nail on the head...things have changed and it is a whole new world for FA's....Gaining Goddess and Natasha come to mind as women who have more than filled the gap left by whose-her-name! LOL
Thanks for putting it all in perspective! :bow:

She was absolutely drop dead gorgeous...what an incredible body.
Why did she quite modelling and close her site? Anyone knoW?
I really don't see anything great about her at all.JMNYC said:That's her in 1994-ish. By 2000 she had passed 400 pounds. Here's a better representation:
