So, this plain v-neck is billed as an ugly christmas sweater. Dear seller, there is a big difference between 'a sweater received at Christmas that you find ugly' and an 'ugly christmas sweater.' This model looks so pissed about having to pose in the gift he doesn't like. Photo was probably taken to send to Grandma in a thank you note.

You'll recall I don't alter the pictures at all and the seller uploaded this one sideways. It's just as well as it doesn't make a whole lot of sense right side up anyway. Maybe the bloomers would be cute, but jingle bells right over the sphincter? At least it's not mistletoe.

This is a sell for the little girl's dress. Points to the seller for rubbing out all the other detail, down to the girl's reflection in the mirror. You can make this really spooky by looking at how the girl wipes the mirror and pretending that she is causing the scratching out of reality. Go there with me.
Look at all the feet! Let's skip over the fact that this 'gingerbread man' dog outfit looks like a dressed up poop and focus on the feet. In particular, look how the foot at the upper right has virtually no distinction between the 2nd and 3rd toes. Yikes. And what are they all doing? Descending upon the dog? Yah, this one's weird.

Now this is one tiny baby, probably like, what, 4 weeks old? Look at how, in the interest of 'cuteness', the future pageant mom has twisted jr's little arm around like pretzel dough. The baby is striking a pose that only a much older child can do. This is so creepy and unnatural!

Now are we trying to be inclusive or are we trying to destroy through assimilation with the ugly Hanukkah sweater? I'm a little uncomfortable with this one as the patch with the star feels a bit Germany 1938ish. As usual, I'm probably overthinking it. :)

This model demos how you will look in this dress while chasing your small dog that has gotten loose.

Since I just can't believe that this is meant to be sexy, I've created an alternate explanation where this woman's house was attacked by insurgents while she was getting ready in the morning and she took off across her estate to escape and was caught just before trying to scale an abandoned section of the garden wall.

Labels: I Learn So Much on Ebay
Monday, December 6, 2010
So you probably know that there's an ugly christmas sweater fad - parties, jokes in movies, etc. It used to be that an ugly christmas sweater was a piece of found art. Now, at least on ebay, it's become a cottage industry, with sellers creating and marketing thousands of Ugly Christmas Sweaters. And the accompanying modelling philosphy is to pose looking as much like a jackass as possible. I object, mildly to the organic nature of the ugly christmas sweater being taken away, but goldarnit this is America and Americans are capitalists, and ebayers chief among them.
Thanks to Carin for this gem!
