QOTD: What are Some of Your Most Ridiculous Transformations?

Are you thinking what I am thinking?

Huge transformations brought about by makeovers are pretty common in television and movies. Take off the glasses, straighten the hair, walk down the staircase: poof, you’re a certifiable hottie.

In real life, it’s not always so successful (unless the puberty gods were nice to you.)

When I was a wee little kid, I decided to play beauty shop with my little sister. This involved me taking a pair of scissors and hacking off her hair. My enraged, and very clever parents, decided to punish me by making me get the same terrible Peter Pan-style pixie cut she got.

Combined with my thick blue glasses and cat sweaters, I was the dorkiest dork that ever dorked. (Although, if I were to repeat that look now, I’d just look like a hipster.)

When I was in high school, I was still pretty nerdy. Glasses, curly hair, jeans and t-shirts made up most of my wardrobe. But I ended up being nominated for homecoming court and my far-more-stylish (at the time!) sister, picked out the most skank-tastic dress at the local Happy Sunshine Fashion store. Jaws literally dropped (because I probably shouldn’t have been allowed to wear a dress that short and with that much cleavage in the school cafeteria.)

These are my anecdotes. Why don’t you share some of your most stunning (or so terrible you hid in your room for 3 months) visual transformations?
