well at the time there was no youtube, no fantasy feeder etc... and there weren't dozens of gaining girls out there showing off their gains like there seem to be today

I loved the model Brooke with the blonde hair. For years I dreamed about her stuffing videos n the site she used to keep.

She was one of the first famous feedees and, before it was common, got over 400 lbs.

Kelligrl was in many ways the 1st plus size gaining model who wasn't fat to begin with. Her pictures and videos inspired a whole generation of FAs and Feederists, as lately as 4 or 5 years ago. She's nostalgic, but also the 1st introduction to this fetish and this subculture we first had.

Because she was hot. Also, wonder what ever happened to Tiglor?

I thought she was fat to start off. Kelligrl was small at the beginning, so she attracted the people into gaining more so then just fatness.

For me, there are a few things that still make her a model for me. First of all, she always had the sunniest smile. I can't imagine that was true of her all the time, but in every pic or vid she looks genuinely happy.

And while I know she isn't everyone's taste in terms of shape, she retained very feminine contours, which doesn't always happen. I love lots of different types of fat women's bodies, but something about Kelligrl will always keep me hooked.

Additionally, she disappeared suddenly with the money of a whole bunch of people subscribing to her newsletter, which adds some air of controversy. And everyone loves controversy.

She started skinny and had a skinny face. Then she got very fat and kept that skinny face (and kept those dimples!) I wish there were more women like her.

For gosh sakes, she did not "start skinny". She entered the scene already very, very fat. Like most fat women coming of age in the 80's (and now) she'd spent years dieting and had pictures to document her "successes". Most fat women her age ONLY have photos during their thin periods, but even those photos show a woman who'd clearly be seen as chunky. Some of her other "before" shots are clearly diet progression photos. She was not a thin woman who fed herself into fatness. She was a fat woman who came to find some acceptance and discovered a lot of appreciation.

And her face wasn't even that thin. Thinner than most, to be sure, but people act like she was one of those absurd drawings of an incredibly fat woman with a completely thin face. Her face had some definite softness to it and as she gained weight, it did develop a pronounced double chin. She took care to pose to minimize it either out of self-consciousness or self-awareness of the weird way her lack of fat was fetishized among people lusting after fat. Just look at her last photos. The posing is incredibly awkward in covering her neck line. There is even an older candid shot where you can see that she clearly had a fat face if she was caught in the "wrong" angle. It was pretty obvious in the videos, too, but too many people were intent on keeping up the illusion. She just recognized the way her jaw line was idealized and distributed photos intended to match these expectations.

She was WAY more myth than reality. I've chatted with her. She seemed like a nice woman, but the cult of personality that has sprung upon around her absence (and which was very much forming while she was around) is creepy and bizarre and I wouldn't be surprised if it contributed to her departure. I don't doubt that she attracted some unwanted attention and I wouldn't blame her in the least if she wanted to be away from that forever. Why is she "important"? Because she's not here. This lets too many do what they started when she was here. Supplant who she was with who they want to think she is. Too many men would prefer a cipher over an actual woman.

Where is she now? She's probably a 50-something woman living in some small suburban community. She's probably had 9 years of more yo-yo dieting under her belt. Maybe she's at a low point in the weight cycle, maybe a high one. She doesn't want to be here. When so many beautiful, engaging, and enthusiastic women DO want to be here, I don't know why the specter of this one that's been gone for nearly a decade keeps getting dredged up.
