It’s Wacky Wonder Woman Wednesday – Playboy Secrets Revealed!

This photo of Tiffany Fallon as Wonder Woman appeared in the latest issue of Playboy:

Nice. But, come on — we all know those flawless Playboy wonder-women are heavily airbrushed. It’s true! As proof, through secret unnamed sources, The Arf Lovers Blog has obtained a scandalous, undoctored photo from the Playboy files AND shocking evidence of their top-secret touch-up techniques. Here’s the original photo of Tiffany, as it came from the photographer’s camera:

So here’s the step-buy-step unvarnished truth about how Playboy worked their “magic:”

First, they covered up an unsightly armpit with hair extensions. (Sometimes, models forget to shave. Other times, it all grows back during the photo shoot.)

Next, imperfections on the skin, including glasses, were cleared up by the Playboy Photoshop-ers. (There are some blemishes that makeup just can’t cover.)

Finally, they modified Tiffany’s body shape entirely to fit a pleasing-though-totally-unrealistic ideal.

And there you go! That’s how Playboy created the “perfect” Wonder Woman. Although I personally greatly prefer the natural beauty of the original shot.


Yay!


Yuck.

    It’s a tough call but I think I actually prefer the retouched version. Even though the other one is more natural, I think I like the fantasy better than the reality. Playboy may be onto something there!

  2. Craig Yoe Says:

    Hey, to each their own, DJ David B. I go for Tiffany au natural! Somehow it’s more real!

  3. Pat Powers Says:

    That was way sick! You have definitely gone too far. I salute you!

I.T.C.H is looking forward to your thoughts. Please, no flame. Thanks!
