I Glamour Shot the Sheriff...

Hey y'all!

Okay, so it's Memorial Day and it's raining cats and dogs around here (I think I saw the Ark go by a few minutes ago). Normally the rain doesn't bother me but in the world of crafty blogging, rain is the end of all things. If I can't take pictures of anything to show you because the lighting is so poo-y, what's a creative blogger like myself suppose to do to entertain and delight you?

Play with the scanner of course...

You know, if you do a Google Image search for the term "glamour shots", you'll get all sorts of early 1990's (and beyond) glamour shot portraits that will amaze and terrify you. But I've decided to make your query easier by displaying a couple of them here. Let's just save you the search, shall we? (See how I look out for you?)

Feast your eyes upon the Creature Known As Maggi Circa 1991! Oh the Glamour! Oh the hairspray! Oh the humanity!!!

In your face Zsa Zsa Gabor!

USA! USA! USA!

(P.S.-I was 15 years old!) Ah, the days of huge hair, sequin covered America jackets and overpriced portraits...such an innocent time back then...

So let this be a lesson to you: don't read Maggi's blog on a rainy day. Rain=Bored Maggi=Plays With Scanner=Reveals Embarrassing Pictures.

Do you have embarrassing portraiture you'd like to share! Come on, tell me! :D

Have a great rest of your day! :D

  6. LOL!

    Yes, I have tons of embarrassing photos.

    I am NOT photogenic in the least. Most of my pictures I wind up looking high or drunk. And I totally wasn't!

  9. OMG! Too funny...though I think you look GREAT! I never had a glamour shot done but I do remember when they were all the rage. I still know people who keep their glamour shot photo of THEMSELVES in their wallets...weird. Why aren't these places around anymore? :)

  22. OMG! Those glamour shots were toooo funny! I'm so glad I never got any done - the other photos from my youth are embarrassing enough.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Ok - so Glamour photography in the UK has a totally differentr meaning and one was getting a tad worried about what the young Maggi used to get up to. (To put it politely... Glamour=nude. And that IS polite!!)

    So I am pleasantly surprised to see young Maggi was a sparkly glitter princess even at that young age. BTW - you look younger NOW than you did at 15! How is that fair?

  25. OMG!!! You were adorable! That jacket really is something, do you still have it?! I had some of these done once, and I was thinking I wanted to look like Marilyn Monroe, but the guy made me look so weird! He curled my hair really tight, and gave me black eyebrows and light pink lips! Not me at all! I did not even order the prints, but I did keep a few of the samples. Maybe I'll scan those in a do a page. Thanks for the great inspiration, Maggi!
