Happy Monday, Promtacular! Readers!
This photo was also submitted by Sonia (from the “Memo” picture below) along with several others. And really, I love getting recent pictures (this is also from 2010) because it gives me hope for the future. Usually.
The girls look gorgeous. Maybe the crazy prints will seem kind of funny to future generations, but I can’t imagine looking at these pictures 20 years from now going “I don’t understand this.” Right? It’s at least understandable? I mean, the dresses are a little risqué, and the blond on the end is standing in such a way as to emphasize her flirtation with side-boob…but mostly they look great and young and happy and there isn’t a painted stone wall anywhere.
I personally wonder what the weird purple Merlin ball in the left corner is, but that has nothing to do with Sonia or her prom-friends or their boobs.
While most of the prom photos we’ve seen here are glorious because the folks in them VERY CLEARLY took prom VERY SERIOUSLY, that’s not always the case.
Stephanie writes: “Me and my girlfriend at the time. We went with another couple. We didn’t really care about prom, and for dinner we ate sandwiches in my car. I wore silver jelly shoes just because and my dress was four years old, and secondhand at that. My girlfriend rented her tux, which was way too big for her. She insisted on wearing a hat. The two of us and the couple we went with left after about an hour to go smoke and drink beer. It was a pretty decent night.”
I appreciate that, even though Stephanie and her girlfriend didn’t really care about prom, they still bothered with a dress and tux and take a photo. That it’s black and white is even better and more poetic, don’t you think?
I haven’t much else to say, except that I also love that because of their squeezing pose, the top of Stephanie’s dress has been smooshed over to the side, as though her boobs are 2″ to the right of where they should be. And that she doesn’t seem to notice or care. Oh, that we could have all been so cavalier about prom!
Let’s go top-down, shall we?
First, we have my favorite category of all: “Shared Hair.” They both have their hair at least 3″ above their scalps. And I daresay her hair goes all the way to her shoulders (and beyond) in the back. She may very well be wearing a formal, reverse mullet (party up front, business in back). Which is all kinds of excellent. What’s even more excellent, though, is that neither of them have a discernible part. I’ll bet they didn’t even PLAN it that way.
Otherwise, this guy is perfectly attired. Plain black tux, red bow tie and cummerbund (to match her overwhelmingly teal dress?). And he looks happy, although completely oblivious to the fact that there’s a girl on his arm.
And let’s face it: she’s hard to miss. That is some amazing plantation/princess dress. Oh, I get the appeal. The tiered bell sleeves, the AT LEAST FIVE-tiered skirt. I will admit to being slightly disappointed that she’s wearing tear-drop earrings instead of some gaudy teal hoop things, but what can you do?
Do you think her tiered dress inspired her tiered hair, or the other way around?
Lastly, I’d like to point out that I thought this photo was taken outside, perhaps in front of a barn. Until I realized no, that’s wood paneling. Of course.
