Let the Glamour Shots Challenge Begin!

We have our very first taker in the Glamour Shots Challenge! I can only hope there are more entries on the way. Get out those scanners and send your most wildly embarrassing 90s Glamour Shots to childrenofthe90s@gmail.com!

Our first brave soul is Shannon, one of my favorite bloggers out there. For those of you who don't know her, she's the esteemed proprietor of a wonderfully snarky Sweet Valley High blog. She always has me laughing, and in her willingness to laugh not only at Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield and friends but also at herself she volunteered the following photos:


Who would have thought it would be so visually pleasing to pair the hair of a young DJ Tanner with the attire of Fred Flintstone? I'm telling you, these stylists are pure genius. Also, that's an A plus head tilt if I do say so myself.




Oh, oh, oh, there is totally a fringe on that jacket, too! Nice touch, GS. They gave Shannon the cowgirl biker look with pageant hair and earrings from the evening gown competition to match. An original pairing indeed.




The jacket nabber! You all knew it was coming, but who knew it would come with the added bonus of studded denim vest/cuff combo jacket with lace sleeves? That button glare could put an eye out, too. Well played, Glamour Shots.




The Over the Shoulder Smolder! Luckily her photo stylists had the good sense to let her smile in lieu of staring come-hitherly into the camera. After all, she was only fourteen. This shot gives us the full effect of the hair and the jacket, and let me just say it's a 90s Glamour Shot dream.


Obviously a huge round of virtual applause to Shannon, the first taker in what better be a long string of entries. I'm looking at you, readers. If you've got 'em, send 'em!

Mr. Condescending said...

I hope andhari sends one in! I agree the jacket nab was incredible!

Well done!

Also, remember those cheesy backgrounds we all got to pick from for school pictures, like the green orb or the hot pink orb with blinds blackground?

Katie said...

So funny, I'm looking for mine right now (I think I may have one in a box somewhere in the apt)!

Sarah Jane said...

I have a gmalour shot from 1999, Im wondering if it it 90's enough to send or not though!?

Children of the 90s said...

It is! Send it! Anything from 1988-1999 will do.

Sarah Jane said...

Oops, GLAMOUR (Typo) :)

Amazing...I just got the craziest flashbacks and the feeling of dying if my mom didn't take me to get some glamor shots! Genius.

my parents hated studio photography, so the only professional pictures I had done outside of school was a set of me as a baby that my grandparents had done. SO JEALOUS of the people who got to do this delightfully weird stuff.

A friend of mine's mother wanted glamour shots of all her kids for Christmas one year. This would've been late 90s or early 00s, and man-oh-man they haven't gotten any less strange.

Way to go! Brave Brave Girl! Your version of an over the should smolder is brilliant!

Shannon said...

Thank you, everyone. Thank you very much. *takes a bow*

Merrie said...

Awesome. So awesome.

I just brought my daughter to have Glamour shots taken last month and they did a great job . They did her hair, makeup, and I have great portraits from them. At first I was hesitant because I did read some Glamour shots complaints online, but they worked so well with her. I would recommend them to anyone looking to have professional photography done.

Haha I have a session from 93 or 94, and I swear I could have had the same stylist as Shannon...! I'll have to upload them ;)
