Ah, darn it Nostalgia Critic!
Did anyone else notice the baby head in the lower left corner??? haha
Kind of cool PS effect, but perhaps just a hair tacky. It sure beats those “halo-y effect hovering heads” though!!
I love the first picture, but then it got ruined.
HAhaha this is a good sequel to “clarinet boy”
I have fourteen years worth of dance photos from my youth (I’ve been dancing for four years as an adult, but only have two non-awkward photos), and thankfully none of them involve bubbles, some are just awkward from when I was coming of age (braces, glasses, circa-1995 perm).
this is glorious! i love childhood dance photos. the awkwardness abounds!
Dear God, this reminds me of senior portraits I made back in 1975.
I have one similar to this of my daughter holding out her arms, and instead of a bubble, my son’s head floats in mid-air. It almost looks like someone said, “Kristina–catch!” and she’s ready to catch his head.
why????????? Did you submit it?
My kids would KILL ME if I submitted that here…
It’s “The Bubble Boy’s” sister. Don’t play Trivial Pursuit with her!
Oh noooooo, I’m sorry, the correct answer is the Moops, the Moops
Over inflated ego.
Truthfully, my first thought was Jareth from Labyrinth and how he ‘trapped’ Sarah in the bubble-ball…
Nobody puts baby in a bubble.
How is this awkward again? Awkward would be if her parent were not from Jersey.
I bet at the time, she thought this photo was awesome!
I have a photo exactly like this (that I sent in, but it wasn’t chosen!). The photographer came to our gymnastics gym and had everybody pose this way. Actually buying the photos was optional. Mine was taken in the early 90s, not sure if it qualifies as being “photoshopped” per se…
She has to grow up and look at that to really appreciate it!
By the look of the photo she’s probably already grown up. I bet her brother submitted this.
It’s the parents’ fault. All of it.
I’d hate to see the day when her gymnastics career pops, or is that the day when her ego blows? Her parents have to be there to hold the wand, and create a breeze, or she’ll just be all over the place or in the bottle.
Alright, I’m sorry. Obligatory shoe-in puns.
That is SO photoshopped. Also, NOT awkward at all. I’m not sure why it isn’t awkward but I figured I should make sure both these cliches get into the thread.
Photoshop??? Pshh, I don’t think so.
Hey from my point of vue I think it looks good and with photo shop it looks LOADS better
Lol! Now that nearly made me spit out my coffee! (There, I added two more cliches to the list)
photo shopped? you think so? duh!
Not Photoshop. It’s a double exposure print. This predates Photoshop. I’ve worked in photo labs for decades. Too bad about the blue leotard against the blue background. Looks like part of her body disappears.
It’s so NOT photoshopped! I was there! Getting that girl’s very tiny twin sister inside of that bubble was a CHORE! A CHORE!
totally nailed it
Doggone it! You burst my bubble!
WHAT????? I thought this was sooo real.. girl with smaller twin in a bubble…nooooo!!!
We haven’t covered all the bases until we’ve mentioned compound bows and Marney.
well, hopefully they used a regulation sized bubble and a regulation sized camera and lens in this picture or i am sure marney will have something to say about it!!!
wow, i guess people just don’t irony. thanks for inputting the wonderful cliches!
She’s not really inside a bubble about to get popped by her other self? I’m as crushed as the velvet on her leotard!
seriously, another “this is photoshopped”??…it’s so tired!
Why oh why, do so called “photographers” do this ?
Just take a picture of the subject and be done with it.
It’s not cute or artsy. It has no “wow” factor. It’s just plain silly.
Let me guess, her name is Glinda..right? Or perhaps Billie?
That’s “Galinda.” The “ga” is silent.
love that you know ‘Glinda’s’ real name
Oh no. Oh… oh no.
I hope no one bursts her bubble.
At first I thought the girl was jumping in the air…then I scrolled down and it got that much better.
Great crushed-velvet dog-print leotard, by the way.
What are the paw prints about?
My guess is the leotard is a ‘Blues Clues’ brand/make.
hahaa….i used to have this leotardd……now thats awkward.
