Walking, talking photoshop?

June 24, 2010

I am watching a show about beauty pageants for children.

Have you seen these girls?  They look like severely photoshopped pictures!  Some of the girls have blindingly white fake teeth to cover up their less than perfect, little kid teeth.  They wear fake eyelashes and more make-up than Tammy Faye Baker.  Their hair is bleached and teased and supplemented with falls and poofs.  Even the toddlers!

And they only perform for their family, other contestants’ families and the judges.  This must be a HUGE money maker for a few people because there are big prizes but the only source of money seems to be the contestants.  How do the families even afford this?

What a bizarre subculture.

    Yes, I have seen the show on Youtube and I cannot help but agree with you that those girls look photoshopped to totally unnatural and creepy all rolled in one. And with all the thick layers of make-up adult-like skimpy clothes, they look older and what are those parents thinking really?
