Here it is folks.. <fanfare>

That is brilliant grin
I suspect the person who took it had the hand shakes? So your "beard" is actually your face, blurry
Very odd though
Or did you just nip behind a tree and veet yourself in between pics 1 and 2?

FrancesDeLaTourCoughngIntoABin Sat 10-Aug-13 07:05:57

So I suppose what I'm saying is "It's OK it's just your face"
Does that help grin

kreecher, this refers to a post that hellymelly made on this thread www.mumsnet.com/Talk/_chat/1817547-Does-anyone-remember-this-spooky-experience-told-on-MN (I don't know if you've seen it?). It's quite a long thread; helly's post, describing this weird photo, was on Thu 7 Aug at about 17.00 hours.

Thank you so much for sharing this, it's properly made me laugh (and get you being so gorgeous!) after shamelessly lurking on the other thread - alas I have no stories of woo, it passes me by.

Wow...it was everything I wanted and more.

Thank you helly the most glamorous bearded lady ever grin

Thurs 8th smile
Unless time is a bit wibbly wobbly for helly which may explain

Ok the beard is shakey camera work
But the feet! Or lack of

I'm on my phone so can't make either photo out clearly, but in the second you appear to be holding some sort of orangey-red fabric? A scarf or something? Is that not the "beard" in the first pic? Were you playing around with it, wrapped it round your head or something?

FruOla Sat 10-Aug-13 10:42:22

Gibber, sorry, yes you are correct (her post about the photo was Thu 08-Aug-13 17:46:22, to be precise)! I must have slipped into helly's time slip this morning grin

FruOla Sat 10-Aug-13 10:44:24

Select the orangey-red fabric is a jacket. In the first photo she was wearing it and in the second photo she had it tied around her waist.

NeoMaxiZoomDweebie Sat 10-Aug-13 10:44:36

It's very odd....I wish I could zoom!

Are you Julie Andrews? grin

FruOla Sat 10-Aug-13 10:47:07

Neo, are you on a PC? If so, click on the photo and it enlarges it.

hellymelly Sat 10-Aug-13 12:09:08

Yes select, I'm wearing a rust tweed jacket when I have the beard, then I took it off and tied it round my waist. <around the time I screwed my feet back on>

hellymelly Sat 10-Aug-13 12:12:13

Julie Andrews ! grin, I was growing out a very short crop. Have curly hair actually, so don't usually look like Jules.

piprabbit Sat 10-Aug-13 12:23:12

I've looked carefully at the beard. It is a clearly an optical illusion caused by the ginger marmoset climbing your back and leaning over your shoulder so that it's head get between your face and the camera.
HTH grin

SelectAUserName Sat 10-Aug-13 12:23:29

Ah thanks. My phone screen is rubbish.

In that case...wooo!

SelectAUserName Sat 10-Aug-13 12:25:45

Have now looked properly on laptop. Clearly first photo is of levitating Noel Edmonds in drag, while second photo is of elfin beauty. <shrugs>

hellymelly Sat 10-Aug-13 14:29:11

Levitating Noel Edmunds in drag- that is exactly what I look like, or Prince Albert as another poster said. Am liking the marmoset theory too.

CorrineFoxworth Sat 10-Aug-13 14:31:30

I have tears rolling down my face!

"And no feet" grin

ExasperatedSigh Sat 10-Aug-13 15:03:19

Bloody hell, it's Aphex Twin!

FruOla Sat 10-Aug-13 15:24:47

Sorry, helly, it was me who said that the first photo was a bit Prince Albert'ish blush.

Second photo - is gorgeous.

GibberTheMonkey Sat 10-Aug-13 16:00:40

You look like a red haired bearded Scot in the first picture and Keeley Hawes in the second

dubstarr73 Sat 10-Aug-13 16:59:56

Its the bearded lady.Really freaky.The picture not you

hellymelly Sat 10-Aug-13 17:21:00

I'm liking Keeley Hawes, I love her <preens>. Bearded Ginger scot less so, Am I really Frankie Boyle?

CorrineFoxworth Sat 10-Aug-13 17:55:16

I am now snorting at the tragic story of the ghost beard wandering the woods and searching for its owner.

Marvellous grin
