Project Makeover: Kid Edition

“That time my Mum took me to get a ‘makeover.’ She’s English so my best guess is she was trying to recreate what Queen Elizabeth looked like as a child as some sort of ‘homage’ to her country. I have no idea.”

Land Of Cowpportunity

“On July 19th, 2000 we emigrated from the Netherlands to live with our family in Michigan to start a new life. In the Netherlands we milked 70 cows, but in Michigan we were living on a farm with 249 cows. More future for the boys that way. This was a nice calm cow.”

Cracker Jerk

“My father was supposed to take my sister and I to get our pictures made. I am supposed to have on a matching jacket like my sister’s. He left it in the car and rather then admit he flubbed, he just told the photographer to let the picture roll. That is why I have my picture professionally made in a Cracker Jerk Tshirt. That and our mullettude makes this photo very awkward!”

The Mummy

“This is a photo of my younger sister, (mummified), my older brother, (proud as ever), and me (“I didn’t do it”).  My favorite part of this picture is how, even though you can’t see my little sister’s face, you can tell she is smiling in a very “TA-DA!” way, and I can only imagine how proud she was to be our model. I don’t remember when this was taken, but I can look at the craftsmanship in the placement of the streamers, and the excellent color blocking techniques, and I know that’s my fabulous work – my brother must have been the project manager/supervisor. My siblings and I have talked about recreating this picture for our mom now that we are all in our 20’s, but it has been really hard to drum up this collection of oddly specific t-shirts.”
