Lockdown Lookalike - the awful realisation......

Lockdown can be tough. I am homeschooling and am finding it hard. But after my shower this morning I looked into the mirror and the realisation hit me. I looked like the Welsh King's brother in 'The Last Kingdom'! He is not a pretty man - straggly hair, a bit fat and quite wrinkly. I was really shocked to see him staring back at me!!! Who do you look like since lockdown? grin

Number 5 heading for 6 on the Mona Lisa scale.

Oh OP that has creased me up grin

Waynetta Slob’s ageing mother. I’ll be honest, it’s not a good look.

Nachonacho Wed 13-May-20 13:01:07

I absolutely look like a heavily pregnant Wurzel gummidge 😳

My dad

Lilacpheonix Wed 13-May-20 13:04:43

I look like a potato.

This, but longer and not purple. I could start an 80s hairband tribute act if all else fails.

Like Alice Cooper on a bad day!

OutComeTheWolves Wed 13-May-20 13:08:45

Any one of these.

I used to see glimpses of my mother in the mirror. This week it’s my grandmother staring back at me. How she looked before she died, in her 70s. She was a plumper, greyer version of my mum. And that’s now me. I’m not even 50 😭

Wont let me attach image sobs

Bags the witch from snow white.

I'm not 50 yet either! I do like Alice Cooper though - if I didn't take make up off before bed, I think I would too, look like him... I've never felt so manly in my life!

Ee gads, It's Crystal Tips hair staring back at me, like @Sparklingbrook
No purple though.
Although I think 7 on Mona Lisa scale is pretty close too.

MitziK Wed 13-May-20 13:21:25

Like this.

Just not as slim, attractive, well groomed or sane.

QuillBill Wed 13-May-20 13:21:39

Here you go @ProseccoBubbleFantasies. You have lovely green eyes.

Khione Wed 13-May-20 13:21:53

Unfortunately I see my mother looking back at me. I avoid the mirror as much as possible

Ironmanrocks Wed 13-May-20 13:22:57

Wow, you lot are beautiful compared to me and @minmooch!

RockThrills Wed 13-May-20 13:32:54

This is who I saw in the mirror post work out this morning...

nevermorelenore Wed 13-May-20 13:35:05

Not unlike Grotbags but with more chin hairs

IntermittentParps Wed 13-May-20 13:42:54

Hairwise, my dad in the 70s. I am not rocking his flared jeans and massive shirt collars though.

Sn0tnose Wed 13-May-20 13:51:39

RockThrills you just made me belly laugh!

CurseryKinkajoo Wed 13-May-20 13:54:05

Fat Thor but without the underlying beauty before I got fat, hairy and drunk grin

IntermittentParps Wed 13-May-20 14:02:02

Fat Thor grin

I've just given up with my hair and covered it all up. I'm being brave enough putting my photo on here, but not so brave that I want you to see my body so I cropped out everything but my head.
This is me trying to look cheerful in these difficult times. Too much blusher?
