People say, “you get what you pay for.” Never is that more true than when you’re shopping online. Sometimes people try to save money or get something just because it’s on sale. Or, they think this amazing thing in pictures must look that amazing in real life. Well, the internet lies to you. Sometimes, what you see is definitely not what you get. Here’s 23 people who bought stuff online that looked totally different in real life.
1. This wedding dress that turned out LIME GREEN
OMG. What would you do if your dress came in the mail looking like this? It’s a total freaking nightmare and that dress looks horrid! Ugh!!
2. This Sully costume
Looks more like a hippo with a happy face, to be honest.
3. This little black dress
Somehow this does not look as good on you as it did on the model.
4. This coat that doesn’t fit
Did the model just not have any boobs or something? Because boobs make this coat impossible to close.
5. This wedding dress that isn’t flouncy
I would be mighty disappointed to open up the box and find this as my wedding dress. It look deflated.
6. This flat prom dress
It seems all the tulle fabric is a little more puffy and fun on the model than in real life.
7. This shawl that looks like an animal
Is that a tail on that thing? Good heavens!
8. This prom dress that doesn’t fit at all
Did they use clothes pins in the back of the model to make the dress so shapely and form-fitting…or did this girl just get the wrong size?
9. These thigh-highs that have gone oh-so-wrong
10. This coat that looks nothing like Michael Jackson’s
It pretty much looks like a white hoodie.
11. This dress that isn’t as long as the picture
This girl got duped, that’s all there is to it.
12. These socks that are just all wrong
We wonder about someone who orders beer-print socks…so we don’t feel too bad for you getting cat socks instead.
13. This rug with a print that’s bigger than it is
Looks like the whole thing didn’t fit on the rug…oops.
14. This mask that isn’t scary at all
It looks…happy? What the hell!?!
15. This painting that looks like a mock-up
Someone was trying to re-create the original painting and sell it…only their re-creation is not that great.
16. These turned cat rings
WHY ARE THEY SIDEWAYS? IT RUINS EVERYTHING.
17. This cape thing…
Ok…why do people buy this crap?
18. These wilted flowers
When you’re trying to cheer someone up and they get these flowers as a gift…ugh.
19. This dress that is a total FAIL
Ok, first of all– why would you buy a dress that has see-through parts all the way down…especially when your body is less than stellar? Secondly– WTF is with this dress??
20. These tiny fridge stickers
They were supposed to take up the whole fridge space…but that didn’t happen.
21. This heart-shaped balloon
Except when it’s blown up, it’s just a balloon with nipples on the top.
22. These tiny drumsticks
Because who wants normal size drum sticks when you could have small ones?
23. This flower fail
Not exactly what we had in mind when we ordered those yellow flowers…
