Bangin’

“The day before school pictures 1984 my mom was complaining that I wore black too often (all the time). So after making myself beautiful on school picture day I grabbed an old white sweater vest out of her closet and wore it to school. She still was not pleased with my school photos. Wonder why?”

Cabbages Of Our Lives

“This was my Senior Picture and my mom thought it would be a great idea to pose with some of my Cabbage Patch collection of dolls. For some reason, I decided to go with the SULTRY look. The rest is history as you can see!!!”

The Queen Of Dew

“When I was a senior in high school, I was obsessed with Mountain Dew. I would have like six a day, any size. There was never a time one was not in my hand. So for my senior photos, I thought it was going to be a great idea to make a throne of Mountain Dew to sit on. I went out the morning of my photos and bought six 24-packs to build my throne. It took me a few weeks to get through all of it. It’s hilarious now because I don’t drink Mountain Dew anymore.”

Desperado

“This was taken for my first communion celebration. Why the photographer decided to put my face on my Dad’s crotch, I’ll never know.”

Side By Side

“This was my year 12 formal and my Mom and I didn’t really want to be there. We’ve always been quite hands-offsy.”

Eye Of The Tiger

“This was at my high school Daddy-Daughter Dance in 1990. I loved this sweater and wore it often and the tiger is like a third person in the photo. The hair, the sweater…can you guess that I’m a Jersey girl? :)”

Leotard Chic

“I spent much time in a leotard during the late 1970s/early 89s, evidently much to the chagrin of my grandmother and sister, both giving me the stink eye here. Mum seems not to care. Thanks, mum.

Muscle Head

“I ordered this cake for my son’s birthday. When we saw it we were all confused. However, the birthday boy loved it and thought it was hilarious. I’m still curious who thought this cake looked good!!!”
