This is all I could find! This was after the first time I dyed my hair an unnatural colour: It was Directions Plum which faded to this dodgy pink. I'm wearing my beloved CBGB's tshirt and drinking Southern Comfort from a wine glass. I was about 17. I mostly can't get over how thin I look and how big my eyes were in my tiny face!

This is from New Years Eve 2004, and I was 16. I can't believe how massively fat I was convinced I was back then, I'm so tiny!

OMFG Louise I love the third one down, I still see people with those eyebrows now, and they are much older than you were! Being 16 is pretty much makes all that forgivable. Also I would have never ever guessed that was you in the last shot. Is that Jizz too? Both of you look totally different.

Oh Bomber, bathrooms shots! And I thought you were classy :P

Haha, as far as I can remember we were doing our make up and another friend told us to pose. I'd never normally have pictures taken in a bathroom, let alone a hotel bathroom!

Yeah me and her have had some fashion traumas in our time. That was at the very start of our friendship, n'awww.

I see people with the rubbish eyebrows and bright dreads on brown shoddy sections and wonder why their friends don't say anything.

I know what you mean! I always colourmatched my hair, but there was some questionable eyebrows, I used to do my make up just like yours in the third pic down actually, I don't think its that bad a pic though :D

Ok this is the oldest picture I have digitally. I think I am errrr... 22 here, so this is 8 years back when I was oh-so-cyb0r. Also, pro-tip, never ever get your picture taken standing next to your gorgeous latex model best friend, especially not when you're twice the size she is.

Image

From what I remember this photo made me cry when I saw it and I spent the next 3 months not going clubbing till I lost two stone. :lol:

I really should have just run from this thread.
I didn't clearly.

Image

Behold my shitty Hair Police install, first ever dreads... I think this was like 9 years ago. The blinding white part lines mixed with that skirt make me shudder.
I still love my Fluevogs though. *pets*

thanks, i just don't like it because i dont like remotely goffik or cyb0r anymore. I have blue tips on my fringe, that's as far as it goes. I'm sure there are photos somewhere of me fully kitted out as a very convincing chav for a play we did at school. ohhh the shame

I should also RUN AWAY.

I thought i could pull off drawn on eyebrows when I was younger.
My constant look of surprise was most amusing to all.

I DID have clothes on in this pic it just looks like im holding my nipple :? :shock:

Oh yes, wait for it...

probably 18? First set of self-made and installed dreads, not really matching the dye job, crime made worse by adding black braids as a fringe-ish bit... plus McDonalds eyebrows (argh that was their natural shape but my glasses and smile in this shot really made them look baaad!

Oh and an untailored fur coat. Pimpin.
