Awkward or not that man is beautiful
And then they went down to the basement to be guests on Goth Talk with Azrael Abyss.
Looks like a funeral parlor, not a HS prom photo setting!! Ha! I’m in SoCal, and this so looks like my people back then, except us artsy types were not into Prom. Too cool
I love you.
The year was 1985 and it was my prom at the ever so classy crown plaza near the airport. As I went to an all girls Catholic High School, we did stand out- but it was an amazing night as we ended at a friends house drinking wine coolers;-)
And to top it off the them was Phil Collins ‘One More Night’…
I miss the 80′s
Linda – I recognize this pic – NDHS, right? those were the days:)
Their eyes don’t line up–one of them needed to switch his/her bangs so that at least when they were face-to-face they could see each other. LOL.
‘Take on Me’!!!
I wish my 80′s prom was held at a funeral parlor. But really, they are cute as buttons.
You nailed it–it’s the Thompson Twins in a Funeral Parlor.
“Cute as buttons” nails it! They look so young and sweet. Ah, those were the days…
You do realize, of course, that had you called them “cute as buttons” back in the day when this pic was taken that it would have resulted in slammed bedroom doors, gales of tears, and, “I HATE YOU AND CAN”T WAIT TIL I CAN MOVE OUT OF THIS STUPID HOUSE AND I NEVER HAVE TO LISTEN TO YOU EVER AGAIN!”
This actually reminds me a little more of Boy George and the Culture Club..just dark
You nailed it! I was obsessed with George!
i mean yo
People probably laughed at these two back in the day – some people may still laugh at them – but this style definitely stands the test of time. It is certainly nicer to look at than a prom photo of any couple that was considered “cool” by the majority of their peers back then.
AGREE!! This is a more interesting photo than any cheerleader/jock combo
these two are seriously cool!! their looks would work today in street fashion in any large stylish city!
this is really funny. i used to know this guy back then. his name is tarek. haha…lmao
See, this is why I’m glad my friends didn’t have cameras when I was in high school. If I could have talked my mom into it, I’d have probably shown up at prom like this, too. Goth so isn’t new; it’s just Prince, mutated.
Weren’t these two in the last Twilight movie?
It’s no use, Duckie. She’ll still go kiss Blaine out by the car.
