RexTalionis: In fact, I'm sure that picture of Tilda Swinton is where the "artist" got the hair.


Maybe Justin Osbourn got a new gig?

what_now: Benevolent Misanthrope: what_now: Gsm136: Benevolent Misanthrope: No kidding.  Elizabeth is badly done as well.  She was as notoriously vain as her father, and would have looked far more fashionable and regal.

That's the worse one of the lot. Ignores the fact that she was a complete mess with a pockmarked face and black teeth. She'd be on one of those extreme makeover shows.

But...she wouldn't have had those today. The pockmarks came from a stint of small pox, which is eradicated, and the teeth were from a total and complete lack of dentistry. Also, she never would have been born because Henry and Catherine of Aragon would have managed to keep one of their sons alive, so Henry wouldn't have had to trade Catherine in for Anne Boleyn

Maybe yes, maybe no.  I bet Henry would still have divorced Catherine for a trophy wife.  As for young Henry staying alive... not so sure.  I had an older sister who died at 20 days old, there's no guarantee he would have lived even with modern medicine.

Elizabeth would have had straight teeth, veneers if necessary, no smallpox scars, and a wardrobe to die for.

Well. I'm very sorry to hear about your sister.

Young Henry may not have survived, but Katherine had several miscarriages that might have been preventable (no way to tell) and would have had a whole host of fertility options besides "prayer and fasting".


Very true - it's far more likely they would have had more children who lived, and certainly at least one boy.  So, Elizabeth probably wouldn't have been queen.  But I can still see Henry "trading up" for Anne and Elizabeth being born.

Henry the VIII and Shakespeare are not douchey enough

indarwinsshadow: radarlove: Didn't Tilda Swinton already play QEI?

That's cheating.

Here's what Abraham Lincoln would look like if here were alive today:

And here's a hip and modern Yeshua of Nazareth-

For a 5,000 year old man, the great Prophet Moses is looking pretty fantastic:

Hmmm.

I thought Yeshua looked like

Whatever, as long as Yeshua of Nazareth keeps looking like he's from Northern Europe.

Needs more blond hair though, and bigggg cheesy smile. Now that's the Anglo Saxon Jesus I'm familiar with.

Marie Antoinette... I genuinely don't think she would've been a Paris Hilton type.

Jon Voight as George Washington...

The closest likeness I've ever seen in a movie, even if the movie itself was stupid.

What Abe Vigoda would look like today

He has been given piercings on both ears, leaving questions about his sexuality unanswered.

WAT?

This makes me want to punch something.  I want those 15 seconds back.

Neat idea.
Poorly executed.

Except Prince Arthur wouldn't have died so Henry may never have been King.

'artist' - I don't think that word means what you think it means....

Again - Arthur died from the sweating sickness, and we still have no idea what it was.  The general consensus seems to be a hanta virus, in which case he'd be just as farked today.

Not bad.

Seriously. Pick up any of those 50 Photoshop magazines they have at Barnes & Nobel and see what professionals can really do.
