    The one with the floating cabbage patch doll’s head freaks me out a little.

  2. G-man says:

    You can almost hear mom yelling at the photographer that, yes, she wants the doll in all the pictures.

  3. laurie says:

    No childhood should be without at least one disembodied Cabbage Patch head picture.

  4. Joanne says:

    That silhouette picture with the cabbage patch doll in a darkened background is really creepy!

  5. julie says:

    I’ll be having nightmares from the one on the top right.

  6. Katilda says:

    I had a cabbage patch doll…loved her. And yet, I never took her to a photo shoot. I’m feeling a tremendous amount of guilt now.

  7. jme says:

    The one on the upper right hand corner freaks me out, I’m going to have nightmares about Cabbage Patch Kids…..

  8. Wayne says:

    I’m going to tattoo the pic at the upper right on my back. It’s magical.

  9. John says:

    Yes, ok. This is awkward. I’m glad you guys re-calibrated your AwkwardMeters, because it was looking grim for a while there.

  10. LauraF says:

    Upper right photo: The ghost of cabbage patch past….

  11. Cara says:

    Isn’t she a bit old to be having her portrait taken with this doll? Is the doll like Chuckie, it can’t be left alone?

  12. Stephareeno says:

    I love the CPK shadow pic, like he’s her guardian angel or something. I wish I knew how to get that effect with photoshop…

  13. KatieMB says:

    Yep that’s awkward.

  14. Angie says:

    That’s painfully funny to look at.

  15. Rosy Runabout says:

    Wow. Someone really loved her Cabbage Patch Doll.

  16. Serendipity says:

    What’s the age limit on loving your Cabbage Patch doll? I mean, when is it too much?

  17. charmy says:

    the picture in the upper right is like something out of chucky, its just creepy. It’s like the patch is bout to turn all garbagepail kid on her or somethin.

  18. cj says:

    the one with the doll in the shadows…. not so much awkward… but creepy…

  19. DM says:

    I love the upper right picture:
    ‘You are always in the back of my mind’

  20. seano says:

    I think this is really nice. The sweet awkwardness of innocence. I think they are great pictures. My wife lurved her CPK too when she was a girl!

  21. They are creeping me out!

  22. eeyore19 says:

    Oh. My. God. I cannot believe that double exposure shot in the top right. 😮

  23. Jess says:

    ok the second pic is just creepy lol

  24. confused says:

    How old is that girl?

  25. Jamie says:

    Oh my god! That one in the upper right hand corner is like that scene in Silence of the Lambs with the shot of Jody Foster and then the reflection of Lecter’s head comes into focus in the plexiglass. Terrifying.

  26. Caroline says:

    The one on the top right really creeps me out.

  27. marie says:

    Actually, girl and doll kind of look alike, don’t they?

  28. MacBastard says:

    Oh holy hell – that’s creepy.

  29. cg says:

    awwwwwwwwwww…..bless her little awkward heart.

  30. Nierla says:

    Wow, that’s creepy.

  31. Lacie says:

    I really think that I am going to have a hard time making fun of this one for some odd reason. I think it’s because this girl just looks so damn happy. I am getting a kick out of the upper right hand corner pic though, all of these pics were just so well thought out.

  32. magillicuddy says:

    Ihope there is an explanation for this one… isn’t she a little old for pix with the dolls?

  33. Leeny says:

    Quinessential 80’s. Love it. Very cute and awkward only because it’s so dated.

  34. LittleBitScared says:

    Top right is rather sinister, no?

  35. emm says:

    this seems like the embryonic stage of the idea for the “chuckie” movies… kinda creepy.

  36. Maria says:

    His smile looks forced. Can’t really blame him…

    What’s with the huuuge head in the background? Why??

  37. jerk says:

    I have pictures of me as a kid with my cabbage patch. His name was ‘Eugene’. The one with the cabbage patch face looming in the darkness is freaking creepy though.

  38. funda62 says:

    Oh my! I was that girl once upon 1983. My mom grounded me when I used a role of film to take photos of my CPK’s in all their outfits doing posses on the couch.

  39. Ashley says:

    Awkward AND creepy. Isn’t she a little old to be having pictures taken with a DOLL?

    My favorite one is the black background one, with the CPD’s head floating in it. My parents had a picture taken like this- my mom sitting there, with my dad’s head floating. It seemed awkward to me when I saw it the first time, and that was in the 80s, when I was very little!

  40. dameDonna says:

    That could have been me. Same shirt. Similar hair. Probably same age. Just that Jimmy, my CPK, was a preemie with a light brown tuft of hair and pacifier. I was in love and took him EVERYWHERE. Almost all pictures in 1985 had him in it.

  41. Allister says:

    That second panel is going to replace the whale in my nightmares!

  42. Tom says:

    lol lol lol

  43. Susan in Texas says:

    Why am I reminded of Bride of Chucky?

  44. emma says:

    i like the floating head.. kind of spooky and exciting all at once

  45. Cheryce says:

    My favorite is hands down the top right. Love the fade to black photo.

  46. Rebecca says:

    I love the caption on this gem.

  47. Joey says:

    I’m more freaked out by her ability to hold the EXACT SAME SMILE in every photo than I am by the everpresent Cabbage Patch kid….

  48. Alicia says:

    WHY?! That’s all I have to ask.

  49. LennyB says:

    Grassy arm shelf. Glorious.
