Spot the (Sheer Relief) difference

Listening to: Dare you to move, by Switchfoot

Sheer Relief's packaging just got sexier so,
Spot the (Sheer Relief) difference/photo editing
left: old pack from about 1-2 years ago, right: current packaging

From woman next door flight attendants with sensible heeled shoes (oxymoron?) to an Angelina Jolie look-alike with her pretty, fellow flight attendant in sexy heels and shorter skirts with suspiciously smooth, coltish legs. The new models are so sassy their identical, untucked neck scarves artfully billow inside the air port terminal. There was no noticable photo editing before and now there definitely is. So much so that the product itself is less accurately depicted. I can personally say and recommend it's the same reliable, tough, supportive hosiery but it hasn't gotten that more sheer! I still like the new pack in spite of all of these things. The old one was getting a bit dated.

Looks like they were also squeezed horizontally to be subtly more anorexic. I like /Shaun Tan's work very much, I saw Heather McDougal had mentioned Edward Gorey on her blog, I would think you would like his work a lot.

I think sea monkeys would make me feel weirdly godlike in some way that is making me think of episodes of the original Star Trek.

They do seem unusually tall and skinny but I figured it was a model thing. Then again all models probably get that treatment!

When the babies first hatch I feel a bit clucky. :P
