Writer's Block: Total Transformation

What's the most drastic change you've ever made to your appearance?

In the short term...

Of all the dye jobs I've gone through, the most dramatic was the time I went to Germany with shoulder-length black hair and came home with short, spiky, tri-colored German punk rock hair. My friend Marja put two boxes of stripper in it, followed by two boxes of blond dye. The result was something resembling candy corn. Fortunately I found a good salon in Trier (of all places) and had it fixed. OOoh, that was awesome hair.

That was a short-term dramatic change. For a long term I'd say gaining 50 lbs. in 10 years is rather dramatic. And not in a good way.
