Have You Ever Gone to Glamour Shots?

If you go to the mall, chances are you've seen Glamour Shots. The photo studio seems to have toned down the cheese factor in the last few years—a glance at its website reveals no sign of feathered boas or cuddly-wuddly teddy bears. That's progress! Tell me, have you ever been a "model" at Glamour Shots?

I alway's wondered with those pics and make-overs in general how they would see me and what have I wasted 48 years on I could have done better?

I did it back in 91, and good god are they hilarious to look at now! I think everyone should do them once...and just hand them out like you are serious about them, maybe for christmas framed....see what people say!

No, way. In the 90's some of my friends kept popping up with Glamour shots and hanging them around the house. They are soo cheesy. Too much makeup, crappy Barbara Striendsand lighting and Romance novel poses. No thanks.

I didn't even know those stores were still open! I thought they closed shop years back. lol If the clothes and makeup are better then I might try it. You could get some good pics out of it too.

I went for my 11th birthday, and they did my makeup really well...made me look nice but not JonBenet Ramsey. My mother and I were very happy w ith the pictures. However, this was the early '90s in the South, so there were a lot of sequins and denim jackets involved. ;)

Galpal - you took the words right out of my mouth! Napoleon Dynamite! I am from Oklahoma though, so Glamour Shots is right up my alley! I can actually say though that i have never had those done before. The two malls that are near my house have the stores, actually one is a store and one is more of a kiosk, but still... I'm hoping that now that we are getting more trendy stores like White House/Black Market we will get rid of old stuff like Glamour Shots! Yikes.

I was 16 and getting a re-do of my horrid school pictures. The guy doing my make-up was a drag queen who showed pictures to my mom and me. The old man taking the pictures had a lazy eye that made him look like he was leering at me the whole time. But it was the BEST!

It reminds me of Napolean Dynamite. Wasn't there a reference about that from the chick that was selling things out of her caboodles?

My aunt treated me to a birthday gift of glamour shots when I was turning 14. I dunno it was awhile back, say 1993...anyways it was of course located at the mall and I remember going in and the "hair/makeup artist" looked lke she just started Barbizon...but I remember her hairspraying my hair back and making me up like a trashier version of a pageant gal. Then they gave me a black tube top and I had to try on bizarre clothes that I hated but my aunt loved. So I still have the pictures of me with a denim studded jacket and flower hat posing against the wall. You know, the classic Glamour Shot pose. Anyways it was a cheesy experience but I appreciated my aunt taking me and thinking I was such a pretty girl for a day. It was sweetl Would I do it again? uhm no.

My cousin got some done many years ago and they looked horrible! That's really what turned me off the whole idea, but I actually don't think I've ever seen a Glamour Shots studio.

to cindee_rella; quite a few of my friends have gone to china nad taken these GORGEOUS pictures and i've always been pretty jealous. i'd love to see myself all glammed up.

i think for chinese girls it's almost a right of passage to go to taiwan/china when they're in their late teens/early 20s and take these AMAZING glam shots. they've got hair and makeup artists waiting on you hand and foot and the packages are extremely cheap compared to what you'd get in the states. most people do glam shots and then go back for bridal pics ^.^ (they're so awesome with airbrushing too hahaha)

Why do realtors always have pictures of themselves on their business cards? I always thought that was so bizarre. Hi, it's me! :D

Hot in junior high but I never gave in myself. I thought it was so cheesey and then everyone passed around these photos that didn't even look like themselves!
