Site Pays Homage to Geeky '80s Laser School Portraits

Hmm, can you spot the similarities between each of these photos? The '80s hair — check. The '80s outfits — check. The pink and blue laser beam backdrops — big check. I can't believe that I almost forgot about these lightsaber-esque backgrounds that graced hundreds of thousands of school portraits! I don't know if I was a minimalist back then or if the lasers had run their course of coolness already, but I actually skipped over the laser trend.

If you want to take a walk down memory lane, a site called We Have Lasers is dedicated to showing off the greatest school portrait backdrop that ever existed. And if you know your way around Photoshop, you could even make a laser portrait yourself . . . I know you want to! Did you get bitten with the laser bug back in elementary school?
