Truly truly truly outrageous

Stitched by moxiedoll77

My twin girls recently started watching reruns of the the mid-1980's cartoon classic Jem on one of our cable channels, so it's through new eyes that I see this totally rad (and truly outrageous) portrait of the young, misunderstood artist herself.

Don't know who Jem is? Whoa, you are in for a treat. Check out the Wikipedia page and you'll have a leg up on your competitors at the next 80's trivia night.

And for those who do know about the awesomeness that is Jem: go ahead, I dare you to get the song out of your head for the rest of the day.

As for me, I was always partial to the Misfits -- especially their Brit-punk-glam sax player.


  1. I loved that show when I was younger. Aaaaand, the song is stuck now. Thanks :)

  2. That's awesome! My 4 yr old's first comment was "Where are the Misfits?" (Yes, I'm a proud mama! I was always partial to the Misfits too.) After I explained that it was just Jem, she said "Okay, I want that too."

  3. This is SO awesome...we have been showing our girls JEM too...I am hoping to make Amelie a Jem costume for Christmas!!!

    Jem is my name no-one else is the same JEM!!!!

  4. Oh, Misfits win for sure. For me, it was more because they had dark hair like me. Also, let's face it, they were just more badass.

  5. I desperately wanted holographic earrings as a child. And maybe some little symbols attached to my wrists that i can bang at people who displease me.
