Beautiful Doesn’t Mean Being Perfect! A Moving Video Of Mannequins Being Made of From Disabled Models!

Disabled mannequins will be eliciting astonished looks from passers-by on Zurich’s Bahnhofstrasse today. Between the perfect mannequins, there will be figures with scoliosis or brittle bone disease modelling the latest fashions. One will have shortened limbs; the other a malformed spine. The campaign has been devised for the International Day of Persons with Disabilities by Pro Infirmis, an organization for the disabled. Entitled “Because who is perfect? Get closer.”, it is designed to provoke reflection on the acceptance of people with disabilities. Director Alain Gsponer has captured the campaign as a short film.
The figures are life-sized, three-dimensional representations of Miss Handicap 2010, Jasmin Rechsteiner, radio presenter and film critic Alex Oberholzer, track and field athlete Urs Kolly, blogger Nadja Schmid and actor Erwin Aljukic.
“We often go chasing after ideals instead of accepting life in all its diversity. Pro Infirmis strives especially for the acceptance of disability and the inclusion of people with disabilities,” says Mark Zumbühl, a member of the Pro Infirmis Executive Board, in describing the campaign.

Beauty Quote Of The Month!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
People often say that beauty
is in the eye of the beholder,
and I say that the most
liberating thing about
beauty is realizing
you are the beholder.

What Disney Princesses Look Like With Realistic Waists!

Excerpt from Hellogigles

Illustrator Loryn Brantz decided to challenge these iconic images and give them humanly possible waistlines. Brantz stated, “As a woman who loves Disney and has dealt with body image issues, it has been something I’ve always wanted to comment on, particularly after seeing Frozen. While I loved the film, I was horrified that the main female character designs haven’t changed since the ‘60s,” She also added, “Their necks are almost always bigger than their waists!” While I too adore Disney, I can’t help but wish the creators of the princesses represented anatomically correct bodies so that all little girls and boys would see that their favorite cartoon heroines did indeed have tenable bodies.
