last pic... hmmm... is it a hole in her tights? or is she on her period? I wonder if the photographer didn't see it? didn't care? didnt dare to mention her pad was showing? or thought it would be an even funnier picture?
is Rebbeca a danzombie?what's going on with Unknown's crotch?
I must say I've seen a number of zombie-themed recitals, but never one that seemed intentional.
ooh, "unknown" seems to have a panty-liner peeking out. unfortunate.
OMG...in the last photo? I'm so hoping that is the crotch liner of her tights...and not a slipping pantyliner. Poor thing.BTW, gave you props on my blog.
Oh purply sparkly dancer #3 - did no one look through the lens first and notify you to check your tights - they are peeking out of your leotard. Ohhhh.
Is that a...a...panty-liner sticking out??!
There is a panty liner sticking out of Unknown's whoo haa...
Hole in Unknown's pantyhose or a "wing".
I love SEXY PEOPLE and all, but that last picture is not "Unknown." It was posted just a couple of weeks ago on Jezebel.com as part of a collection of photos of the readers' childhood dance costumes. I apologize if I'm outing someone that wanted to keep their picture anonymous (not my intention at all!), but I just feel strongly about giving credit where it's due. The original article is here (scroll down and click on the pic to see its caption): http://jezebel.com/5273547/so-you-think-you-can-dance-80s-fashions-are-like-awesome
Is that a dancing zombie?
is that a tear in the legging near her crotch, or god forbid, is that the edge of a maxi showing?
Rebeccah... you are a superstar!
Unknown probably should have adjusted those tights a little before the picture. Just saying.
Is that a pantyliner showing out of that grape-colored leotard? Yikes.
First one.... Okay. Second one....StrangeThird one....WHY?!?! And what is that thing hanging out of her crotch?! LOL
Is that a feminine product peeking out on the girl in the purple?! Oh my goodness!
omg. the crotch. ahahahha.
Rebeccah looks like an extra from the Rocky Horror Picture Show or a backup dancer for Marilyn Manson.ACK.
Oh god. Is that a hole in Jazz hands' leotard or a wing from a maxi pad? the worst part is that this looks like one of my childhood friends in the face.
Umm...on that last one is that a bit of feminine napkin poking out of the side of her leotard?
Umm...on that last one is that a little bit of feminine napkin poking out of the side of her leotard crotch?
Oh, poor Unknown! Someone really should have introduced her to the tampon sooner...
In the last one.... do I see pantyliner??
My guess is that none of these people went professional...
this is one of your best posts ever. WELL DONE. :)
It's not a pad hanging out in the third photo. That's how some dance tights are made. They've got a different material in the crotch because they're often worn without underwear. Still looks embarrassing....
Oh, Adriana. I love you, your platter sized glasses, purple outfit, and, of course, the mysterious thing in your crotch. I laugh each and everything I see this photo.
Hold me closer tiny dancer, count the headlights on the highway, lay me down in sheets of linen, you had a busy day today!
First drawn to her face and then the American Tan tights ....then saw the panyliner/ hole excellent look
Maybe #3 was born with a completely white vagina? I'm not a biologist, but I think it is possible.
Based on the year of the picture, No. 2 is having a Thriller. Thriller night. She is fighting forher life inside a killer, thrillertonight.
ON NUMBER THREE: It's NOT a pantyliner, it's the crotch of the tights. They have a thicker fabricy part in that section, since the tights are generally worn sans-undies (I'm a dancer). On younger kids and those not in the know, it can get out of whack easily and then you forever have an unfortunate dance photo where people think something horrible is going on. But it's NOT a pantyliner.Also I vote for Rebecca being in Thriller (I danced to it, too!).
Bingo! Our Jazz class did our year-end recital to Thriller, with a few crowd favorites such as 9-to-5 and Oh What A Feelin' (Flashdance). We were very avant garde, I thought.And no, I never went pro...although I have gone out dancing in similar get ups for kicks. Thanks for the hilarious comments...I was so delighted to get posted on this site, you don't even know.
Sorry to disappoint everyone, but that isn't a pantyliner hanging out of the girl's tights.Sadly, I have goofy dance pictures like that, too (which I will have to dig out and submit)... and I used HATE that the cotton crotch lining would hang out of the costumes like that. I thought it looked like a maxipad, too... and I remember throwing a fit before a dance recital because mine was doing that.Not sure which was worse, that, or having to glop Vaseline on my teeth before a performance... to make 'em shiny, and to remind me to SMILE BIG.
at first I thought the third one had something else interesting going on down there but I'm pretty sure it's the way the tights are made. A lot of dance tights have that.
I think Dance teachers are sadists based on the choice in costumes
oh my goodness.
wow wow. I hopes that's not what it looks like in #3.
Hello, blogosphere. I would like to say that it is, indeed, the crotch of my tights showing, NOT a panty liner.I am honored to be a part of this historic site.Love,adriana
Yet again, Awkward Family Photos has shamelessly reposted, or at least not checked sources... I felt strongly enough to write this comment: "Guys, you really should check where these photos are coming from - this has been lifted straight off Sexy People, as are many of your other photos. It's really not fair to muscle in on someone's blog territory, especially when they are so well established. Shame on you, really. Your 'blog criteria' are basically only marginally different to theirs, and to be honest, although I have been following your blog - as it does have some hilarious material - reposts like this are making me think twice. This photo was posted on Jezebel June 1st, which in turn was reposted with permission on Sexy People on June 19th. It wasn't even submitted by the subbject herself, whose name is Spydriana. Not cool, AFP. Check your sources!" Keep up the awesome work Sexy People, don't let blatant rip-offs spoil a good thing!
OMG ENOUGH WITH THE STUPID IS THAT ....... IN HER CROTCH JOKE!
Lex, you're just sick. That's the damned cotton crotch of the tights. Could it be more obvious that's you've never even had a girlfriend.
Very late comment --- sorry. But I seriously had that purple leotard. It was somewhere around 1988-1989 too. I'm hoping there's no photographic evidence of it.
Last pic... it's just the gusset panel in her tights poking out of her leotard.Why would she have a pad on ~outside~ her tights?Her tights are brown... wouldn't you think it would make the white part of the pad a little brown too.
The mysterious white patch is simply one of those annoying fabric crotch breather things that almost all hosiery has. It's hard to find it without it--I've looked. I've had to modify a costume because of it. Put all your wondering away. It's unfortunate that it couldn't have been easily edited out for her back then.
Guys id dancer number three is sporting a pad out of her costume then she doesn't really know how they work, usually you wear them UNDER your tights not over them!!!
Rebbeca all I can say to you is WOW!! you go with your bad self! LMAO!!
You forgot Andrew Jackson’s Big Block of Cheese with nary a macaroni in sight.
There is obviously a lot to know about this. I think you made some good points in Features also. Keep working ,great job!
I think these kids are looking sweet wearing these dance costumes. I have seen many of the dance competitions of children. I want to buy a dance costume for my little daughter. Your site is helpful for me. Thanks.
