Lord, I apologise...--veinglory


...for this more than usually pointless post. But what is the point of a blog if not to share the occasionally pointless and even slightly snarky thought.

You know I am not overly fond of Poser dolls (shown right). I have always thought they didn't resemble any real living person.

But I would have to say author Deborah Smith comes surprisingly close?

I really don't mean anything by it. It was just what I thought when I saw this pic.... possibly just the middle-distance eye focus?

Way too many unkind... okay, downright mean and vicious and petty thoughts... come to mind.

Dunno about Poser but there's more than a touch of the ladyboy about that pic

That's a man, baby!

Ouch, I really did not mean to encourage insults about the lady's appearance--after all, Poser dolls are meant to be attractive females. I just thought it interesting that my mind made the connection. Perhaps I should have known better than to post about it....

I'm sorry, Emily, it's just that her expression... well, "wooden" is the only word that comes to mind.

Which, thinking about it, is probably why you connected it with the poser dolls.

See? I should keep quiet.

It's a terrible photo, and it does make her look slightly masculine.

Emily Veinglory said...

"quiet" isn't really a specialty served on blogs. It's just that sometimes one can hear can hear one's mother saying: if you can't say something nice..." ;)

Karen Scott said...

I originally thought it may have been 'doctored'.

I think it looks so Poser-esque because of the extremely heavy make-up she's wearing.

azteclady said...

The make up and the lack of expression/life. Like a porcelain doll... or poser.

Okay, let's be honest.

I happen to have a broken nose (thanks to that swing set in second grade). I also have a forehead that goes on forever.

I know that I look better in photos if 1.) it's taken from my right side, and 2.) I am smiling. I also need to fluff up my hair a little (but not too much), or the forehead thing becomes a visual problem.

Deborah Smith is a beautiful woman who needs to 1.) smile, 2.) not put her hair up, and 3.) make sure that her shoulders are low when a photographer takes her photo.

She okay-ed this photo - and that's a shame. She looks like Marilyn Manson, here, but she looks lovely everywhere else.

Let's just put it down to a simple truth: even the best authors are sometimes in desperate need of an editor.
