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?

  • Tonatiuht

    it’s only that the girls are sit on the boys’ knee

  • Annie

    Oh, very clever-and no tricks or photoshopping !

  • Sakura

    It’s a nice illusion, but you can tell that the bridesmaids are sitting on their partner’s leg.

  • super funny!

  • Kelsey

    LOL – nice!

  • Guy

    HAHAHAHA This is good. First.

  • RT

    The real illusion are the non-attractive guys having such charming ladies on their sides. :)

  • Stephanie

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

  • Dalip

    The girls are sitting on the guys legs!

  • Max

    beside the dwarf thing…. what a ulgy men!!!

  • Kimon

    Good one!

  • John

    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.

  • davina

    last couple to the right are also the bride and groom in the same picture

  • NeeL

    Nice one!

  • jin

    XD Epic fail effect

  • GingerNinja99

    dont get it sorry, someone tell me!

  • rabbit

    Is it something to do with the camera angles?

  • onyxbutterfly

    That’s different.
    Girls sitting on the guy’s knee while they are kneeling. Cute.

  • breandan

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

  • Roosie

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

  • aymeric

    I love it…

  • Xiroey

    Haha, the women are all crouching.

  • AH

    too ezy again,,the girls are sitting on the guys legs

  • Tom

    very nice

  • RangerJim

    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.

  • John

    Took me a little bit to see it. Cool, they are actually sitting on the groomsman’s knees.

  • Hypersapien

    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.

  • MissAnneThropee

    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.

  • Peet

    Wow, the men only have one leg.

  • greekfire

    hahahahahahahahahahahaha looks like midgets

  • clues

    The bridesmaids are sitting on the legs of the men. So obvious.

  • James

    I see what you did there.[img]http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/img-thing?.out=jpg&size=l&tid=50162693[/img]

  • Olivia

    It looks like they are sitting on the guys knees but I am not sure

  • CorrlesID

    they are sitting on their housband legs dot?

  • Privace


    Oh My God! It took me 2 seconds to realize the brides were sitting on the legs of the grooms!

  • Ford Prefect

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

  • R M Booker

    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.

  • Chow

    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.

    • Chow

      …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.

  • Jordan Pruyne

    Oh… I see the woman are sitting on the guys legs

  • jeff

    ha! nice one – it took me some time, but now i always see it the “proper” way…

  • AH

    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

  • Nelson

    OHH, COME ON!???!

  • Cycloptic Canary

    OOOOHHHHH! the guys are kneeling,
    not on their knees…

  • bob

    There actually just sitting on the dudes legsssss

  • Greg

    Pretty weak as an illusion – very obvious the girls are sitting on the guys’ legs

  • Sheryl

    I see no illusion, just a nice wedding photo.

  • Nathan

    Ohh.. i get it. That’s neat.

  • Mia

    First! Cool Illusion! :)

  • Nick

    What exactly is the illusion here???

  • Nancy

    I still don’t see it! Any hints?

  • HaHa

    I think they are sitting on the man’s leg. Look, you can see their knees in the dresses

  • Samuel Coxson

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

  • Vardluck

    The women are sitting down,you can tell by the 2nd and 3rd one’s knees

  • Celestial

    Oh I see what the illusion is! :D

  • buffy

    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!

  • Toro

    I think the illusion is that the guys only have a leg.

  • alysha

    how cute

  • alysha

    and woo hoo for first comment

  • I’mFromSlovenia

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

  • Skye

    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.

  • MuchFun

    The girls are sitting on the guys knee’s.

  • Braden

    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!

  • Blair

    The girls are sitting on the guy’s legs!

  • Ersie

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

  • hardcore

    SMURFS! oh wait…nope, those are not Smurfs.

  • Faba

    not only girls are dwarfs, but all men have only one leg !

  • 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.

  • lol huhabuahauaaahaha

  • abdel moiz mohamed zian

    good job

  • Jumbybird

    That looks like it was just accidental.

  • igor croatia

    “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!

    • Vurdlak

      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.

  • Justin

    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!

  • Lorissa

    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

  • Poyteroy

    It took me a while, but I eventualy saw what was going on. All in all, REALLY good illusion

  • ahh nice one
