    I know i had this exact outfit when I was a child. I kid you not, right down to the hat. And it wasn’t a costume, it was a school outfit that I had to wear. I know I got a pic of somewhere…

    are those TAP shoes???

  3. Randall says:

    I’m going to go with mother and daughter both taking dance at the same academy. My eight-year old girl is in dance classes, and when they have a recital every girl involved has at least one outfit this goofy.

    Sparkle Motion!!!

  5. David says:

    From the creator of Toddlers and Tiaras?

  6. Samantha says:

    Well, no one looks happy to be in this photo.

    Kid looks annoyed that mom made her wear that and mom looks annoyed that the kid is annoyed…

  7. Cinderilla says:

    That … headdress … on the child is quite … eye-catching? If that is the term I want. Mom sure has a great figure though. You don’t get that sitting around playing your Wii.

    It’s Sarah and Piper!

  9. SMG says:

    It’s the picture title that does it for me! Read it and laughed out loud! SO GREAT!

  10. Trish says:

    need more cowbell tooooooooooo!

    Mom and daughter both took seperate dance classes……but met up for the photo shoot!! I actually think this one is sweet and not horribly awkward. All out-dated dance costumes make us cringe but the photo, itself, seems sweet. Momma wanted to dance, too!

  12. Jess says:

    This is MY MOTHER & I circa 1987 or 88. ENJOY.

  13. El & Mo says:

    The girl’s leggings look modern but is that hat even from this planet?

  14. Noneya says:

    Talk about your stage mothers…

  15. Mika says:

    Sadly you know that picture is huge, and hanging above a fireplace… So everybody can feel welcome, and awkward at the same time.

  16. Kelley says:

    I think this picture is sweet.

  17. Deanna says:

    Wait? Isn’t this the same girl who’s holding the goat in the picture below?!?

  18. Kit says:

    Little Mrs. Sunshine?

  19. DMF says:

    I didn’t know Susan Sarandon danced as well as acted.

  20. B-I-C-H says:

    Mom and daughter dance probably. And I’ve seen these costumes recently, so not 80’s throwback

  21. Anne says:

    Ah, yes, the mother-daughter jazz performance photo, complete with shiny, sparkly 80s outfits. If I recall correctly, my mother opted out of the paired photo option, leaving the oh so awkward solo picture of me “smiling” in prominent view in family photo albums while her solo shot somehow managed to get buried. Our costumes had a gold theme rather than hot pink, though. Nothing like seeing your mom in gold lame shorts (a la Richard Simmons) with a matching hat with a little net. (As I said, this photo has not seen light in many, many years, and I don’t blame her.)

  22. zeppie says:

    Isnt this the same girl and Mom from the fringe costume picture?

  23. yg bluig says:

    It’s Little Miss and Adult Mrs. Sunshine.

  24. Badstockart says:

    i think mom is getting pissed that her little star won’t shine bright enough.

    “Missy, if you don’t smile like you mean it, I swear, I will wear your little butt out as soon we get out of this K-Mart!!!”

  25. Andrea says:

    It doesn’t seem awkward to me…maybe because it’s pretty much every dance picture from the 80s. A lot of schools have adult classes and I used to love that my mom participated. I even had that costume, just in green!

  26. issafly says:

    Sometimes I doubt your commitment to Sparkle Motion.

  27. HandsomestWar says:

    This picture could use more jazz-hands.

  28. Craig says:

    What, no Jazz Hands?!

  29. Brent says:

    that is awkward

    • CB says:

      That was the very first thing that I said, and planned on commenting……I think “awkward” is truly the only way to describe this…..
