Laser Mullets (with denim)

“I don’t think anyone is prepared for the 90s masterpiece of my mom, her boyfriend, me and my brothers. Those mullets. The lasers. And so much denim.”

Bring The Noise

“Photo of my husband and his friend who thought they were quite fashionable. It was the 90’s and alcohol may have been involved.”

Over It

“My mom took my brother and I to a portrait studio when overalls with one strap down were cool.  He was a junior in high school and I was a 6th grader. I don’t know that we’ve ever recovered.”

“This is a school photo of my older sister from 1988. The monstrosity upon her head is reflected in her expression. The lasers in the background and applique-roses sweatshirt only add to the epic-ness.

Nightmare On Sesame Street

“Growing up my brother and I didn’t have access to the real Sesame Street….. so we had to settle for these two. I don’t know how we weren’t scared out of our minds.”

Blinding Lights

“Our school had mid year friend group pics called ‘highlights.’ The highlight was a Venetian blind that had a color light behind you and you could choose your groups color. My sister and I were not popular so we decided to do the pic together because the colored Venetian backdrop was the coolest ever. Our brother was in basic training in the army at this time so we were EXTRA patriotic as a family and the Gulf War was happening. I left the house with the most epic bang curl your life has ever seen. I was 100% sure people would be passing notes about how I should pursue a career in cosmetology. We chose RED for our Venetian color because WE ARE FIRE. They hand the pics back in class weeks later and MY HEART SANK. It sank because the glorious bangs I had worked a full hour on and half a can of Aquanet had called flat on one side and captured my worst hair moment.”

Kung Fu Hustle

“I wanted to show off my kung fu so I wacked my sister out of the way and did a victory dance.”
