Illustration Friday: Flawed -

"The Bearded Lady"
digital collage by Mick Mather
"... twelve times a day
the call and the bally
where shills and their marks applaud,
twelve times a day
the flash and her body
'make the nut' though features are flawed
..."

Need a shave? No, otherwise she wouldn't be the bearded lady.

I like the gray with a hint of purple.

There's nothing quite like a good "creep out" now and again. :D

SusuPetal:
That's correct, Susu, no shaving or part of the sideshow goes missing! :)

I was just talking about this condition (hairsuits?) with one of my clients. I'm not sure I spelled it right, but I was talking about how birth deformities and strange medical conditions could land you in a sideshow to make a living.
Get outta my head Mick!!

I'm not sure of the medical condition but it is a somewhat well known, if rare, disease. The bearded lady is, I believe, a much less severe version that also gives the sideshow Joe Joe the Dogface Boy!

Shani:
Thank you, Shani! :)
