Glamour shots has really stepped it up.

Remember when Glamour Shots was so cool? (Well, sort of.) You could go in and totally get all made up and wear varying colored feather boas... then pose with your head tilted obscenely far to one side all the while smirking at the camera a la Deb-style from Napoleon Dynamite.

Very alluring.

Well, a quick search on The Google showed me that Glamour Shots does still exist. And, it looks like the pics are better... sort of... I mean, they even take out your wrinkles and laugh lines now. (See Exhibit A. below.)

Exhibit A.

So find your local GlamourShots. (My guess? They're in a mall. Sandwiched between a Spencer's Gifts and Build-a-Bear.) Search by zipcode here.

A $25.00 charity donation goes to the first person who makes an appointment, gets a glamour shot and emails it to me so that I can post it on my blog. (It's got to be you. Not someone you know or your kid.)

Awesome.

  1. I ALWAYS wanted to experience Glamour Shots while in my early teen years. Perhaps later in maternity leave this would be the perfect activity? A childhood dream come true. :)

  2. This is soooo funny!! I was just in Cincy at Kenwood Mall 2 weeks ago-(taking my boys to Lego Store & Build a Bear for first time!) and I about fell over when I passed a Glamour Shots! Had it done way back in the day....my hubby and I had a good laugh about my "sexy" pic from way back then...couldn't believe they were still up & runnin'!

  3. Um, does it count if I still have my Glamour Shot from the early 90s? I may or may not have a picture of myself, wearing copious amounts of makeup and a COWBOY HAT, with hair out to HERE, hanging on our fridge.

    (My word verification is "uprify." Doesn't that sound like it should be a new slang word? Let's make up a definition for it. "Since I've been working out, my butt has totally uprified.")

  4. That's hilarious. I always wanted to get Glamour Shots taken! My boss had a professional-looking Glamour Shot done and we use it as her headshot in publications. I chuckle a little each time I see it though because although it is professional looking, I can still sort of tell that it's a Glamour Shot. The colors are a bit too vivid.

  5. Would you believe there are no Glamour Shot locations within 200 miles of my zip? Seriously.

    The only one in Ohio is in Cincinnati. Go Wendy! Go Wendy! I'll also make a $25 charitable donation if you go!

  8. This is terrible, but my Mom has a glamor shots from the 80s that she did in a Mrs. Santa outfit and every, I mean EVERY male that visits my parents house makes an inappropriate comment about it. My poor sweet Mom!
