Hosed

“Our family friends were of German ancestry and their kids got their pictures taken in authentic lederhosen. My mom thought it was so cool, so my sister and I had to do the same — we don’t have an ounce of German in us.”

Pixie Pics

“I was obsessed with pixy sticks in high school and decided to showcase my favorite candy for my school photo. I literally always had them on me and the sugar high got me through those crazy days.

Wunderbras

“When I was a kid, my mom, who is a seamstress, would make funky gifts every year for Christmas. Some time in the late 80s, she got her hands on some giant men’s underwear and made sports bra’s out of them. Hence, my two aunts and grandma modeling them on Christmas Eve. This is just one of many awkward Christmas eve photos.”

Dodgeball

“This is my 2001 senior picture. I am holding a four-square ball, and I have a t-shirt with my name on it. My mom told me to get a hair cut, so I got a mohawk…Oh. And I am wearing a duct tape suit.”
