“This is my 8th birthday. My mom’s gift was to dress up as Cinderella, and dress up my uncles as…. I have no idea!”
(submitted by Sofs)
That should be the new police uniform. I’d never feel intimidated again!
Somewhere, a circus is missing their trapeze act.
Well duh, the uncles are the coach drivers, right? They used to be mice.
When men do this, they REALLY love whoever they’re doing it for.
She says it was her 8th birthday, no-where does it say she is in the picture.
And I was the size of a 5 year old when I was 9 due to slow growth.
Some of you people are so jaded. I see comments such as oh this is fake, this is Photoshopped, this party was more for the mother, blah, blalh, blah. Can’t you all just be happy that a family loved this little girl so much that they would go through the trouble of having this elaborate party for her.
I too am baffled by the story behind this photo, but there’s an obvious explanation for why Cinderella looks so unlike the “Swiss Guards” – they’re her brothers-in-law, not her own brothers.
holy crap, hottest mom ever!
I think this photo and story is b.s.
1) “Mom” looks too young to have that kid;
2) “Mom” looks nothing like her brothers;
3) The “uncles” look nothing like one another;
4) The kid in the photo is way younger than 8.
Nevertheless, those outfits were worn and this picture was taken, thus leading to awkwardness. Uncles could be in-laws.
Sorry to spoil your unbelief but
1) mom was young and beautiful (even a little immature to make Sofs party about her)
2)they are her brother-in-laws
3)maybe the third brothers smaller moustache threw you off
4)8 yr olds are usually belly button height
I have an 8 year old, he stands 4 feet 7 inches. I also teach 8 year olds, none are this small.
I totally agree; this photo bugs me because it isn’t matching what we were told in the caption!
1) The photo is so unclear, it’s hard to tell what she looks like. I always look good in blurry photos because it makes me looks 10 years younger. It’s really hard to judge from this picture.
2) She just said they were her uncles, not her mom’s brothers. They could be her dad’s brothers.
3) They do look similar to each other. If you take off all the moustaches, at least 3 of them look to be brothers. The one directly to the right of the “Mom” looks least like the other 3. Also, genetics. My siblings and I look barely related.
4) Totally agree with you on this one, though it doesn’t make the entire story fake. She looks like she’s maybe 4 or 5?
I’m wondering why a person would lie about their age in a picture. They clearly aren’t 8. How would you not remember??? And why would the mom dress up for the daughter’s party and not the daughter? That is what seems really awkward. I have also never seen a more unhappy looking Cinderella…
That’s your MOM??? She barely looks 12 in this shot!!!
Two words: Feather Envy
Mom looks reeeeeeeeally young O_O
The guy on the right is smiling because he is so glad he went with the green, yellow and red outfit instead of the blue, yellow and red that the others are wearing. Image how embarrassing it would have been had he shown up dressed just like the other three.
Are the two mustaches on the left real??
The uncle on the far left is hot!
I was really afraid this was some sort of super-awkward (and demented) wedding photo until I read the caption. Woman in long dress in center, adults in matching outfits at either side, and small child wearing flowers in the middle – ok, flower-patterned pants, but none of this is really rational – so it could have been a wedding party of some insane variety. And then I read the ‘explanation’. And…I think mine makes just as much sense!
Why is one guy in green and the others in blue? And who’s that slice of a person sneaking in on the right?
Still, one woman gets four good-looking guys. Not a bad ratio, as far as I’m concerned. You go, Cinderella! What a woman!
Hey! Don’t you get it? Just notice the tables/chairs in left corner; it’s a out-door costume party and mom said, “honey, it’s your birthday party too.” Someone is on the right side, note the slipper type shoe, more costume on another tiny guest… The only one not in costume is the birthday girl and she looks precious in her birthday dress.
Agreed there’s no way the child is 8 years old in the picture. Makes me tend to disbelieve the whole story.
Something doesn’t add up here.
Your mom looks like she was all of 16. What year was this? Cute picture
one of these things is not like the…wait…one of these things is the only normal looking thing in the picture.
Absolutely nothing awkward about this shot whatsoever, except the damage on the top left corner of the pic. lmao.
mom’s pretty hot …
Wow! Your mom must be a master manipulator…or else she threatened her younger brothers as only a big sister could do with blackmail collected during their teenage years.
I’m glad homeboy on the right is smiling… I’m assuming this is Mom’s gift to herself?
No! Really?!! This is borderline child abuse.
I think mom did this for herself… she always wanted to be a princess… and then Sofs was born, but it wasn’t too late, oh no, the birthday party was just the way to get the attention back where it belonged. On herself.
Totally agree! This is all about mom. I’m sure you were a cute kid, but it looks like you are wearing a hairnet.
Mom looks sort of hot!
Swiss Guards moonlighting from the Vatican?
Either you were a really tall eight-year-old, or your uncles are all really short.
Interesting family tree. Mom looks nothing like her brothers. And where is the eight year old?
Maybe they are her brothers-in-law, not her brothers…
At least you know they must really love you to do that.
“…and dress up my uncles as…” Sons of Alchemy? A lesser known Renaissance gang known for their garish clothing, feathered hats, and Seiko watches.
Since everyone is comparing the uncles to Swiss Guards I have to think that the gentlemen are wearing Swatches, not Seikos.
You’re that tall at 8? Or are your uncles that short?
Oh, sorry…I misread. That’s your mom. Duh.
There is NO way the little girl in that pic is 8 yrs old! she looks about 4 MAYBE 5?? and if the Cinderella is the Mother, then she looks like a 13 yr old girl……this pic would be alot funnier if it even made sense when you look at it?
I can believe it. They probably look taller in person.
Stripes tend to make you look taller and Princess outfits tend to make you look younger…
FINALLY, someone other than myself that realizes that is not a mother….she doesn’t look more than 13, MAYBE 14 at the most. Also, that child is not even close to 8! I have 4 girls myself and that child is not 8! She looks like she turning 4 or perhaps 5, definitely not 8!
Good to know that kids set the standard for everyone! I can’t believe all these people saying the person who posted the pic was lying.
Yep you’re right. Sorry to be a party pooper but this story is phoney baloney. That girl is just past toddler stage. Probably some festival and she had her picture taken with the group. Yep thats my vote. Yep
Note: No circus tents were harmed during the making of this picture.
They look like the Swiss Guard. Were you all planning some sort of Roman Catholic revival tent meeting?
Mom dressed as the princess for her little princess’ birthday….Yup! Awkward!
Wow, mom is really generous!! What a wonderful, thoughtful and selfless birthday present! Also, nice pants.
Cinderella and the Court Jesters… with Musketeer feathers. Yeah. They’re world famous.
Every other yet-to-be-moderated comment is going to say this, but they look like Swiss Guards to me. My brothers and I used to pretend to be them when we were kids, and we weren’t even Catholic. Or Swiss. They’re just that cool.
Oh. My. Guard !!
They are her serfs – or perhaps her minstrels??
I’m kinda curious why the birthday girl isn’t dressed up??
Obviously, your uncles loved you very much.
I agree. I can hear what my uncles would have said if my mom asked them to wear any type of costume, much less these get-ups! Let’s just say it would not be fit for family viewing!
Eddie Munster meets Cinderella, who meets the Vatican guards?
Ha! That’s exactly what I thought: Vatican Swiss Guards!!!
My daughter said ‘jesters’….I think we are all a little confused!!
Mom didn’t love you, did she? I’m making assumptions based on the pants she put you in and the dress she put herself in.
Mom looks very young, I think she still wants to be the prettiest girl at the party, what does S say?
Wowza, those are some pants you’re wearing! You were really cute, though and your mom was gorgeous.
wow…moms quite the hottie.
Vatican City guards?
Yes. That is the exact style of the Swiss Guards at the Vatican. The real ones uniforms are fitted btter of course.
That’s precisely what I was thinking! Great minds and all…
Sometimes there are no words…
I am speechless…
Well your uncles look like good sports!
