Burlesque: Hip ‘n’ Shoulder

To survive in the cut-throat world of Burlesque, you need dedication, instinct, star quality, and the ability to dislocate your hips while keeping a smile on your face.

Thanks Neville. You can see the original here

    No PsD – a kind of dysplasia…

  • Shkaev

    Someone give them that image of Marilyn Monroe already.

    • Mnicek

      And imagine a professional dancer being able to do this! Inconceivable!

      • CaptainO

        Inflate her legs to gargantuan size? Indeed.

        • Waldobaby

          If you check something like Google images you will see that she HAS gargantuan legs.

  • Waldobaby

    Wow. Just wow. And I don’t mean the picture.

    • Waldobaby

      Let me explain: oh my dear lord this is becoming pathetic.

      • Chris

        You’re right. You should unsubscribe and go away.

  • Mnicek

    They’re looking for new caption writers on their Facebook LOL

  • Karsten

    not only is the hip dislocated but the legs are way too big compared to her upper body. nice one.

  • Nobradors

    Definiteley NOT a Psd. A trained dancer can put out her hip quite a bit* – camera angle and fluffy feathers make the rest.
    check e.g. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_rtxFTnyWI

    • Tomas

      Just thinking – moving your hip like that – can a male person learn that? Should be possible but perhaps we do not wish to experience a male dancing like that…

      • Gsveda

        Yes. the drag queens at our local cabaret do it regularly

  • http://www.radarinutil.com viOlator

    This is NOT a PSD.

  • Nekoko

    This is NOT a psd and her legs aren’t too big in this camera angle. Just my two cents. Maybe some people are confused because her head isn’t inflated.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Anellia-Stefcheva/1459105162 Anellia Stefcheva

    Her upper body and lower body parts came from different photos; combining them didn’t go so well. That’s the disaster here. The upper part of her body should have been placed further to the left.

      Thanks for providing the graphic. Now that I’ve seen your version, the original posted PsD looks like an unmistakable disaster. I support the “two different photos” theory.

  • Tyler Durden

    During the Cosmo years, I remember a ton of comments from people saying things like “I sent in a great one, why hasn’t it been posted?!1!”

    Now I know what those submissions were.

      I’d like to see more of your examples please. For research.

    shes known for having a pearshaped body and O legs. PLUS shes wearing a corset. PLUS the feathers around her bum. PLUS sticking it out. this is what you get. NO Photoshop fail

  • ttyymmnn

    You people are focusing on the wrong part of this picture. The real disaster is Cher’s face. She’s 64 years old for Christ’s sake. Her face hasn’t moved in 25 years.

  • Gothchiq

    Meh… I can do that… hell, my boyfriend can do that. sorry guys.

    I usually don’t stand up for Vernom, but imma give him some credit now. At first I thought the feathers from the outfit were the ones to blame for an unnatural voluptuonsness on the hip, but if you draw a line on where her hip should’ve been if it weren’t for the feathers, you’d see that her upperbody was probably moved a bit to the right (or her legs to the left, whatever).

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_A53DTNZ6ZYSIRXLE5GRRRYMWSQ JohnS

      I’m more inclined to think it’s a combination of the pose, the camera position and lens selection, with a little tweaking of the aspect ratio to emphasize the length of the legs, and perhaps a bit of the Liquify filter at the waistline (above her right hip). I think I could reproduce that shot with a moderately wide angle lens from down in the orchestra pit?

      • http://www.facebook.com/gabi.garcez Gabriela Garcez

        Liquify abuse is a good guess. Christina Aguilera is a bit fat these days so I guess they had to edit a lot her torso and legs to make her skinny, which unaligned her body. Still, it is a PSD.

        I’m just sayin… Ask your girlfriend to stick her bum out like this, if she’s able to do the same pose, then perhaps you should get a new girlfriend. You know, one that hasn’t been exposed to radiation from nuclear weapons testing.

        • Betty

          she’s a professional dancer and she’s standing at an angle to the camera, not straight on

        • http://samanthadehart.blogspot.com/ SammiDe

          Hmm, I am double jointed even in my fingers. Bet I could. :)

    • Commie

      They brought in the waist too far on the left.

  • http://ladyluckbeauty.blogspot.com/ LadyLuck

    just look at Cher! thats a really PSD!

  • ds211

    You need to take an anatomy class, or at least go to a strip club and see naked women. Most of the stuff you post on here is not a Photoshop disaster.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Anellia-Stefcheva/1459105162 Anellia Stefcheva

      Which one of those did you do? It was such a waste of time and money :/

  • http://twitter.com/arnoen Arno Enzo

    They need new PsD judges, too.
    Nothing wrong with this picture. And the fossil in the upper left corner is probably from archives anyway.

  • Spiffulus

    Come on, Vernon, be honest – your new writers quit, didn’t they?

  • Alex808

    A suggestion: why don’t we next time just post our own disasters in the comment section ? Let US make this website good again.

      Open those 2 pics on photoshop.
      Put them on different layers
      Make Xtina about the same size in both pics using Ctrl+T
      Make the top layer 50% filled
      Align the legs
      Check if the hip from the bottom photo is aligned with the one from the top photo
      Spoiler: It isn’t!
      Now try to align the upper bodies
      Check if the legs from the bottom photo are aligned with the ones from the top photo
      Spoiler: they’re not!

      • Betty

        spoiler: they’re not taken with same angle and she’s not facing the camera dead on in the other photo

        • http://www.facebook.com/gabi.garcez Gabriela Garcez

          Eh I guess we have to agree to disagree then

    • house
      • http://www.pretty-polkadots.blogspot.com Ana Paula

        I was going to say something of the like. She’s kind of bowlegged and her hips are rather wide for her torso; so that’s how she’d look, naturally, in that pose. There’s no PsD here.

  • Smarfiette

    Christina has curved legs, so no PsD here.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=778545687 Junrey Sarahina

      i agree… christina’s butt is just in a kind of a “duck pose”. PSD fail.

  • Inspector Sands

    Can we please have a moratorium on these Marilyn Monroe-pose pics? Yes they look a bit funny; no they are not PSDs.

  • Ratava

    PsD Fail… again.

    • Bob

      Keep complaining. All the page views and refresh generate money…

  • Molitor

    Cher’s new ad hawking DePuy artificial hips?

  • Linn

    am i the only one who thinks that the eye looks funny?

  • Fernando H. Zilio

    New ostrich species…

  • Halicon

    im trying to make my mind if the comments or the pics are funny… im settling for the comments… people are so whiney.

  • molecola

    well, she looks like an ostrich, it makes sense.
