The big weekend is almost here. I don’t know about you but I’ve been waiting all year for this! Well, wait no longer, I’m here to let you know what’s in store for the TCFStyle Expo weekend. This is the 5th Anniversary TCFStyle Expo and we’ve listened to feedback, we’re bringing back some of your favorites, switching up a few things and adding some new highlights to bring you a more intimate and memorable event.
Since 2015, the TCFStyle Expo, is a body-positive fashion convention that takes online conversations about plus-size fashion and advocacy, offline. Independent and mainstream fashion brands are represented here, and women & men bond over style, entertainment and empowerment. Here’s why you need to be in the house!
We’re Counting Down to the 2019 TCFStyle Expo!
Blogger Mastermind Day
Last year we added the TCFStyle Expo Blogger Mastermind Day to the line-up and, boy, was is a hit! Current and aspiring fashion and lifestyle bloggers from across the country converged on Atlanta last year for a day of mentorship and learning from Marie Denee, creator and Editor in Chief of The Curvy Fashionista. We heard you and the Blogger Mastermind Day is back! Spend a full day learning the business foundations and best practices to take your blog to the next level. Affiliate marketing, working with brands, identifying the various ways to bring in revenue to your blog, we will break this down in a jam packed day of education and fun!
Spotlight on Plus Size Cosplay
With the rising popularity of comic and pop culture conventions, superhero and anime culture we here at The Curvy Fashionista decided to let our geek flags fly last year and we had another hit on our hands! The plus size cosplayers will be back again to remind THE WORLD that there ain’t nothing wrong with a little more meat on those cosplay bones!
We Changed it Up!
I see you new venue, you cute. Again, we listened. The TCFStyle Expo is about bringing the plus/big & tall community together and what can do that more than a more intimate and fun venue? This year we will be coming to you from the Omni Hotel in downtown Atlanta! Sexy, right? And the entire Expo is in one place this year! You don’t have to miss anything to go to that panel or hear that speaker because it’s all going down on the main stage. Panels, fashion shows, giveaways, you name it, all on the main stage, with shopping and general fashionista fabulousness going on all around.
Last year we gave you more of an informational and motivational rundown on cosplay, for those of you who were unfamiliar with it or familiar but a little hesitant to get started, with our Cosplay Anyway panel led by renown plus size cosplayer TaLynn Kel. This year, you’ve got the information and the motivation so it’s time for you to hit the Cosplay Runway! We’re merging fashion fierceness with your favorite popular culture characters inviting some of the hottest Plus Size and Big & Tall cosplayers to strut their stuff on the catwalk! TaLynn is back with some of her cosplay friends and we’ve put out the call, if you come to the Expo in your favorite ensemble you can hit the runway, too!
Blogger to Brand Speed Dating

Aspiring lifestyle blogger (let's see how far the introvert nerd in me will let that get) and self-proclaimed Facebook humorist, you can find me in Atlanta enjoying movies, art, music, food and festivals. If you can't find me that means I'm on my solo Netflix and chill.
