Corals Bridal: Graphicus Interruptus

As the deadline for the fashion show grew near, Francois’ ever-increasing dose of Ambien began to take its toll.

No mystery here.  Girls have been doing this with clothing for decades.  When I was a kid, it was paper cutout dresses with folding tabs to mix and match on a flat cardboard Barbie doll.  Now it’s Google image search and Photoshop.  The only real mystery is why it got left seemingly incomplete.  Hey, maybe this was the enigmatic combo that finally activated the Stargate!

Thanks Ena for finding the strangest disaster I think we’ve ever had. You can see the original on the Coral Bridal site.

    The worst part is that the eraser tool was used like that

    Maybe the instructions for photoshop aren’t written in the Wu dialect of Chinese.

    I think it’s just that the dummy has got hyper realistic legs, that’s all.

    No PSD here. It’s very clear this is Chell, working as a model now; she’s been photographed while passing through the portal.

    At first sight this looked like this combination was chosen intentionally to create an effect. But whatever this was supposed to become, its clumsy execution (eraser brush) qualifies it as one of the most horrible disasters ever, Fukushima-style. By the way, wasn’t there a category “Just plain unfinished”?

    Nazi eugenics gone horribly wrong.

    The way they were mixing models and mannequins, that mashup was bound to happen.

    NO PSD….  What you have is a very wonky looking  screen that was only large enough to show off the bottom half of the female.

    • Waldobaby

      Female? You sure?

      You know? All kidding aside, this might actually BE a MacPaint disaster. I see no reason to suspect a Photoshop screw-up.

        LOL I wish they would bring back MacPaint; something simple for non-pro use.

    I don’t even  know what to say!  Paper dolls are an accurate description, but… wow.  Just, wow.

     Paintbrush disaster.

  • Stella

    This may be the best example of the worst photoshopping.  Still, I think it would have been funnier if they had finished changing the background.  Then again, if they had, people would be saying it was intentional.

    Girls, beware. This is what anorexia is going to do with you!

  • Fishnet

    Well, if you follow the link to the original site you’ll see that the other photograph for this article would definitely qualifiy as a PSD as well…

  • Wolf-fish

    Why bother getting all high-tech when they can just doodle it and take a picture of that? From the same site:

  • frenchyimfaking

    Ugh! Break my heart why don’t you! Not only is this a bad PSD, but the decent images on their site are stolen from other companies!! I would know theirs aren’t authentic too since some of the stolen ones were images I edited for other companies. Sheesh. Shut it down!

    • Wolf-fish

      They even used an old picture of Nicole Kidman! The customer sketch as the only image of a custom dress is still my favorite, though.

      • Wolf-fish

        Besides the top PSD, I mean.

  • CragAntler

    The old man’s eyes boggled, overwhelmed by art!

  • thewolfkin

    what i find interesting is that this could have been well done. The idea of mixing a model and a mannequin is actually interesting. This could have been an ad for a designer or an actually interesting site design choice to show off the dress and people wearing it. If they had used their own images (as I gather from above comments), and maybe used some tearing brushes to make it look like the bottom half was ripped from another mag. 

    It would work perfectly to dredge up that paper doll nostlgia that Scooter talks about.
