Wordless Wednesday


I ran into this Roman Soldier the other day! Looks a bit effeminate though!

Waiting for his passport photo, no doubt. These Romans get around!

Pink dress? Hmmmmm.

Irene said...

Yes, he's too pretty to be a Roman soldier. He must be a Hollywood version from the 50's.

Was she/he waiting around for those starship troupers to reappear?!!

Maggie, you do visit some strange worlds don't you !! ;)

That's so funny Maggie. He doesn't look real, or Roman, but very strange. And the pink frock - well! M :-)

Is he real? Does he move?

Omykiss said...

You've just reminded me of the pink stockinged bloke I was in Christchurch last week ... maybe he thought he was dressed as a Roman soldier. I'm just going to have do a post on him now.

What was he doing while Rome burned?

Hadriana's Treasures said...

Aah! He'd fit in well up here! Hx

Mean Mom said...

Is it something from the Zandra Rhodes autumn collection for men? I told her that it wouldn't catch on in pink.

In reply to david mcmahon, I suspect that he was painting his toenails!

Odd marketing. Are they preparing for the credit crunch to take us back to Roman invasion days? Georgeous colour pink though!

Retiredandcrazy said...

I just had a thought. Wasn't it supposed to be WORDLESS Wednesday Maggie. What's with the words then?

Maggie May said...

Fair Point R&C, Fair point. However I find it hard to shut up at times. LOL!

Looks like the Romans answer to the Action Man doll.

RiverPoet said...

Oh, he really does, doesn't he? Maybe he should be in heels!
Peace - D

Expat mum said...

To be authentic, he needs to be very hairy and preferably covered in mud. At least that's how they looked in the summer all along the Roman Wall. Definitely the Hollywood version.

Shh....Don't let him hear that!

Bear Naked said...

Love the subtle flashing of the knee.
Is he trying just a little too much?

Bear((( )))

Sandi McBride said...

OMG...you're right, he does, doesn't he? I wish I looked that girly, lol!!!

Definitely left me wordless (speechless!)
Great shot Maggie - congrats on POTD.

Suldog said...

Thanks so much for stopping by over at my place, and for the kind words.

A Roman in PINK?!? I guess it was "Don't ask, don't tell" in those days, too!
