Question Glamour Shots???

OK. stuff is sold here all the time to raise money for schools etc.. by kids...
Example: Chocolate bars for a buck, candle catalouges etc....

Today I was asked at work if I wanted to buy a Glamour shot??????
This is the kind of foul thing you see in the mall where they dress you up and make up your face like a clown IMO
I thought this was a bit bizare and taking raising money to the extreme......

What do you lot think of those places that do the pics???
I think they are freaky and look pagenty un-natural and very weird......
I was pretty direct in my dislike about them when offered.....

Or maybe I just really looked like s**t today !

me too (Clowns)

Yes these glamour pics are so strange and the "samples" they had trying to sell them were more than a little scarey...
I must say I found it all very odd indeed.

OMG sooooo true!!!

The sad part I think is that they are selling this overdone look........
When infact most women I think are far more naturally beautiful without all the garb. Admit I like my Clinique especially at bonus time but don't like to cake it on!!
It is a very Southern thing too it seems, as you said.......

For those of you not familiar with the concept just think the female cast of steal magnolias!

Glamour Shots are a bit bizzare at the best of times, but for a fundraiser? that is a strange one to do.

I thought that was Texas and the Carolinas. Most of my friends up there, septics that is, love Glamour Shots.

This is the country that bleaches 5 year olds' hair in order to have them compete in beauty pagent, after all.

My husband's niece had them done when she was 16, I think. My MIL thinks they're wonderful. "Oh how beautiful K____ is!" I don't think she realises that K looks a TON better with no make-up on at all! Hubby even prefers my 39-year old haggard face with zero make-up on.
