As I've mentioned, there is a quite a supply/demand for "used," "trashed," "well-worn" socks, stockings, shoes and underwear on ebay. It cuts across men and women. A good thesis for someone.
The part that interests me is just how hard it is to take a picture of your own legs without looking like a cadaver at best and severely disfigured at worst.
So I have no business putting this pic up because it is totally professionally done. However. The copy that goes with it is straight from an 'as seen on TV' commercial.
"Sick of loose and ugly hoods? Cheap imitations, un-shiny rubber? Its (sic) time to look your best!"
I'm picturing high-school-play quality acting from a woman struggling and harumphing through getting a mask on and throwing up her hands in frustration and disgust. And then BING! this mask appears in her hands.
Good lord and to think of how clammy my feet would get in my feety pajamas - this would not work for me. The buyer of this item is a very complex person as it combines quite a few fetishes. I adore how the seller has a super casual 'just walking down the hallway' pose.

At first I thought this was a real horse, but no. So that eliminates the 'pet-free home' problem. Yet raises the larger question, WHY IS THERE A HORSE IN THIS PICTURE?? And then juxtaposed with the cement wall and gravel, and the hand holding out the sleeve to display the shirt better. As if holding out the arm is going to provide clarity to this scene.

Whether or not this was a deliberate choice to advertise this sexy dress that's no longer needed among a glut of children's toys and stuff, it seems this seller is sending out a silent plea to help us help her regain her sense of self as a woman. I mean, aren't there other places, say, a hook, to hang a dress on to take a picture?

This sale is for absurd flip flops with those rags tied all over them. I love that the seller took the picture on a vaguely dirty looking tile floor like 'Show off your new flip flops, and clean the floor while you're at it!'
PS, this picture also seems very Mondrian to me.

Please excuse the tiny picture, but I just had to post this most awkward photo of a nervous maid of honor giving her speech. Hand jammed in pocket, arms tightly pulled in to her sides, tho, she holds the mic like a pro. I'm not sure this is the best picture to sell this dress, but I feel like I've attended this wedding.

Do you see a mannequin with fetish gloves on? Or a mannequin riding a horse? Or two hands holding up leather horns? An excellent psychological test.
PS The mannequin doesn't even look 3D to me. What does it say about me if I'm just plain confused?

My guess is that she's fending off someone trying to get her to eat a piece of bread. Or maybe she's not that skinny and it's just one helluva body shaper.

Note his stiff arms, backwards leaning posture and shoulders hunched up to his neck. Note her firm grip on his back and fully extended lips. This little gal is going for it and he wants nothing to do it. Read 'The Rules,' tiny aggressor, before it's too late!
Oh and by the way, this is a sale for her clothes.

Why are they talking about me? Why are they tied together with that brown sash? Like a two-headed mean girl.
