now you see it, now you don't

To continue on today's theme of how women get the shaft (heh heh) (now there I go again with the stupid laughing sounds written out in the posts), here's a link to a website of a guy that is a professional photo retoucher for celebs and bikini babes. It's pretty crazy. Click on the smaller ones to see. This site kinda isn't safe for work because it just looks like you are looking at big pictures of bikini babes rather than being all feminist and shit. It's crazy how he erases all skin flaws and folds and stuff and makes the women look like dolls, but what's really scary is how it makes you realize that it looks exactly like everything you see in fashion mags and stuff and maxim, etc.

that is so weird. i was trying to post a comment here last night to tell you to check that website out (in reference to the airbrushing of victoria's secret nips). something was wrong with blogger so i couldn't do it. but you found it anyway... we must be reading the same blogs.

my favorite pix are the ones where he makes the girls' asses hecka big. like they really needed more back in the first place! it really creeps me out when he changes the position of their feet in some of the pix. i hear bones cracking in my head when i scroll the mouse over.

Yeah, he makes that girl vida's butt bigger and she's known for her butt. She's this woman that was just in a little picture in Maxim or something that was a photo spread of like regular professional women, and she was just one of eight or so, but her ass was so crazy that men wrote all these letters in about her and now her ass has made her a star! She has her own calenders and special magazine editions and stuff.

just got a chance to look it over. Some of the untouched ones look like mugshots from the smoking gun. Then again, some of these women look absolutely perfect un-retouched. I don't think I'll look at pictures of purty women the same way again.

Besides making waists thinner and booties bigger, his bi trick seems to be to make people more orange. Alicia Keys looks way better before he put hella make-up on her, and Erykah badu looks better before the retouching too. Mary J. looks beautiful no matter what you do, and Lil Lim looks like a painting of a doll in the before and after picture!

And by 'bi' I mean big, and by 'Lim' I mean Kim.

oh, and i was all stoked to ask you what a bi trick was. did you notice how he takes out alicia key's slight eye cross, though? i did notice that mary b. looked waayyy better before the retouching. people need to realize that the slight coloration variations and flaws in real skin is way sexier than smooth doll skin.
