Miss Mortis is creating Club Bodice: The USA's 1st Size/Body Pos Alt & Goth Club Night

My name is Shawna and I have started Club Bodice, the USA's first and only alt/goth club that is geared specifically toward overall body positivity with an emphasis on bats and ghouls on the plus size/bbw side.
It’s hard enough being a curvy girl in today’s society; it’s even harder being a curvy girl that identifies as goth. Speaking personally, I have to psych myself into going out, and then when getting ready I feel like I’m working twice as hard to look half as good. After I get to the venue I worry about being embarrassed by going out on the dance floor. It’s hard keeping up the excitement of the evening when I feel I don’t belong.
I decided to get more involved with the local BBW community, and even looked into going to other BBW nights at clubs around my area. I have not found any venue or event that fits my style and proclivities. So I wanted to create a place where the bigger girls of the alternative/goth scene and their friends could go and enjoy themselves, and possibly find that alternative guy/girl who is into them.
Club Bodice represents a decadent reverence of the Rubinesque beauty in all her form, that nods to the romantically macabre in all of us. The focus should be on the appreciation and respect of all the women in attendance. And within this setting, we want to provide a safe and carefree place for these creatures to frolic.
Club Bodice is also a place where plus-size performers can come and showcase their art to an encouraging audience. And I also wanted to connect attendees who may not have known there were options with vendors who offer plus-size alternative clothing and accessories.
I see this being a beacon for so many people who may have not had a reason or desire to want to go out of their caves and socialize. Or maybe someone has dearly wanted to do so, but didn’t feel like there was a place where they didn’t have to worry about acceptance and safety.
Please look Club Bodice up on Facebook at facebook.com/clubbodice, on our website (still under construction) at clubbodice.com, or contact me at clubbodi[email protected]. If you are ever in the area we would love to extend an invitation to come and experience Club Bodice for yourself.

Would be awesome to get some help with purchasing things like the snacks and decorations for the club as well as some help for flyers and administrative items as needed like ink and stamps for the door, ticket rolls. Also for some help in purchasing items for give-a-way prizes(as I feel it helps to encourage vendors to add freebies when you are supporting them as well)
