Dwarf Wedding

Seems I have forgotten to deactivate animation in my last post from appearing directly inside your widgets. Andre correctly suggested it could’ve distracted some people from doing their work, and I apologise for that. It won’t happen again. On the other note, here’s a fun photo Mojca from Slovenia (?) sent me while ago. At first I thought it was some kind of an awkward Lilliput dwarf-wedding, where I have to admit I wasn’t able to see the illusion immediately. But when I cracked it, I thought to myself – “this would make a fine addition to our Mighty Illusions archive“. What you think of it?

  1. Doesn’t look like an optical illusion to me – you can tell they’re all sitting on their other halves’ knees!

  2. I think the groomsmen are going to have grass stained knees on their nice khakis.
    It took a moment to figure it out. At first glance the bridesmaids don’t look like they’re sitting at all. I like.

  3. Ah, it took a few seconds, but I saw it. I think you should add it to Mighty Illusion Archive. Like this one.

  4. Nope – Searched for something for almost 5 minutes…. What’s the illusion, is there an illusion or is the illusion about nothing?? :p

  5. What “Dwarves”?

    All I see is a bride & groom, the 3 presumed groomsmen on one knee with the presumed bridesmaids sitting on their other knee.

  6. I didn’t get it at all at first, then I saw what was going on when I revisited the site a few hours later.

  7. First? If this was a ‘Lilliputian’ wedding, I take it that would incur that the Bride, or Groom were of short stature, But, now we are just speaking about 3 Bridesmaids in billowy blue dresses sitting on the knees, obviously, and as a female, we all know that the length of those dresses would if not pulled out in front of them, would surely not a memorable photo make.

  8. Wouldn’t “Dwarf Wedding” imply the people getting married are dwarves? Shouldn’t it be “Dwarf Wedding Party?”

  9. Rather un PC this picture, and it’s heading? People kneeling with others upon their knees, hardly an illusion either – Vurdlak, you can and have done far better than this almost discriminatory scene.

  10. At first I thought the illusion was that the groomsmen were all amputees, then I saw that their legs were behind the bridesmaids. “Why would they be there like that?” That’s when I put it together that nobody in the photo is a dwarf.

    1. …looking at it again, it may be that the one bridesmaid on the left is either young or in fact a dwarf? I can’t exactly see the sitting position on this one.

  11. i dont get how this is an illusion, there is no illusion of them being dwarfs, it’s quite obviosu they are sitting on their knee

  12. OK this is frustrating me now I just cannot see the illusion, some-one please help I’m going out of my mind.

  13. At first glance it looks like a wedding photo, but the men are all wearing open neck shirts and flip flops, so it can’t be!

  14. our country is shaped like a hen, and the three girls in blue dresses are sitting like hens on the guys legs

  15. It looks like all the girls in the blue dresses are short. But actually they’re all sitting on a guy’s lap. That’s why the bride looks like the tallest and the othergirls in the blue look like midgets.

  16. This is truly one for the ages, Vurdlak I like your choice of illusions. This website continues to be one of the best out there!

  17. The girls are seated on one of their boys leg … but yes, the first impression is that they are real dwarfs … ahah!

  18. The girls might not be dwarfs, but surely they wouldn’t be very tall even if they were standing.
    What surprises me most is not the “illusion” though, but the fact they decided to marry those guys. Just kidding, just kidding.

  19. “Mojca from Slovenia (?)”

    So, whats with question mark? You never heard of Slovenia? Oh, tough luck we just have no way of knowing what SLOVENIA is… is it a country, does it have a map?

    Please dont be dumber than you are!

    1. question mark went there because I don’t know from where Mojca is. I solely guesstimated she is from Slovenia based on her name which sound Slovenian to me… since I also live in Croatia like you do, I’m perfectly aware where our neighbouring country is located ;) Thanks for your nice words.

  20. You all missed it! imagine if the guys crouching all stood up. Then the Bride and groom are the dwarf’s….just look at the crouching guys and guess how talol they would be if they were standing!

  21. Well its just simply looks like a dwarf wedding, but as you can see the men are kneeling down, which makes it look like they are getting the same size as the women, but the ladies are sitting down on the men knees, they are not dwarfs
