Always Ready

How much of the performance is an act? How much of the look is a costume?

Written purposely a little more ambiguous, I'll leave the details of this one to your imagination.

Transcript: In the solitude of her private dressing room, the lavish pop star sought seclusion from the overwhelming ardor of her adoring fans. Though she had long since made her exit, the crowd’s rhythmic chants could still be felt resonating deep throughout the arena's underground. The star paused for moment to take in a deep breath. The show had been spectacular, every bit as glitzy and glamorous as her rhinestone studded leotard, but now it was time to slip out of her costume and call it a night.

Reaching back beneath her silky blonde locks, the star found the seam that had been oh so carefully concealed. Delicately peeling back the layers, the star’s energetic, youthful expression melted into apathy whilst her vibrant blue eyes grew lifeless, and then dark. The rest of her salacious figure was likewise shed until all that remained was a barren bodysuit—now a poor imitation of the pop star’s likeness—and an unrecognizable shadow. With great care, the new individual left the bodysuit to hang freely in the closet before departing, faithfully ensuring that ‘the pop star’ would be ready the next time ‘she’ was needed.


  1. Very few are willing to do such subtle work when it comes to captions. So many feel like they beat you over the head and here you used simple whispers to get the point across. Fabulous technique, well done picture selection. Excellent way to tickle the imagination.

  2. Great work! I think it's one of my prefered caption, could you make a caption where a 24 years old man named Tom voluntary masking into one of these celebrities (the celebrity is agree that Tom takes her identity): Kim Kardashian, Penelope Cruz, Emma Watson, Paris Hilton, Jennifer Lawrence, Stana Katic, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jennifer Garner, Lea Michele, Kate Middleton, Shakira, Selena Gomez, Katy Perry. Thanks.

    1. Hi! I'll see what I can do, but I usually just write whatever strikes me. I'll keep your request under consideration though.
