The above picture has been doing the rounds in recent months, often with the caption "Very Tall Bride."
The bride in the photo is Allyssa DeHaan
, a collegiate basketball player at Michigan State University from 2006 to 2010. In real life DeHaan is very tall — 6 ft 9in. So could this photo be real?
Well, no. When I first saw it, I thought perhaps she was standing on a box, perhaps for a gag photo. But some more investigation revealed her height in the photo is a result of good, old-fashioned photoshopping. The manipulation was done by a DeviantArt member going by the username lowerrider
, who enjoys creating fantasy photos of giant women.
I found the original, unaltered photo of DeHaan at her wedding (below) over at Flickr
