Cameo - My Brain Is Just Playing Games With Me!

Do you remember that awful song in the 80's (if you weren't BORN in the 80's), called "Word Up" sung by Cameo (fun fact: originally the New York City Players)? Oh, yeah, that song has been stuck in my head for some weird reason. I never ever liked that song AND I don't think I've even heard it in the supermarket or from a passing car, or anything. So where did it come from? My big, old, bad brain. Yeah, the MRI is scheduled for Thursday, so we'll see if Cameo shows up in the imaging.

So naturally cameo soaps came to mind (aren't I so smart?), and I found some really pretty ones. I never think of cameo soaps, but I'm glad that song brought me to them.


Sunny Day Creations made this cute dolphin reef scene



Skinsations makes a number of cameo style soaps





These three soaps (above) are intricately designed and made by Soapy Chica in the UK


I like Daisy Cake Soap's interpretation of a cameo soap. Definitely. :)



These gorgeous cameo soaps are made by Debbie, of Soapy Love, but aren't actually on sale in her Etsy shop. This photo is representing a tutorial she is offering for sale on how to make these. These are stunning and needed to be included in this listing of cameos.


Dug Shop
Dugshop is a collective of artists. Love their stuff.


Fun Soap
Let's just say Barbie made a cameo appearance.


I'm curious, what song has been stuck in your head and what decade is it from?

Great soaps :D

Unfortunately all the songs stuck in my head are kids songs :P The rock monster song from the Veggie Tales movie is the latest. Perhaps I should use their annoying music as inspiration, lol

Yo, pretty ladies around the world
Got a weird thing to show you so tell all the boys and girls
Tell your brother, your sister and your mamma too
Cause they’re about to throw down and you'll know just what to do
Wave your hands in the air like you don't care
Glide by the people as they start to look and stare
Do your dance, do your dance, do your dance quick mamma
Come on baby tell me what's the word

well somebody had to do it...hahahaha...!

Some seriously artful soaps! My fav, of course, is the pig "cameo". ;)

I don't have a song stuck in my head right now...thank goodness! Last week, I had that song about "I'm too sexy for my...." (was it by Yes Said Fred?) in my head for a bit. 90s, I believe.

Love them all but got to say Soapychica's are sheer genius, I've got one in my bathroom and it is just there to look at....so pretty :)

don't write the song off completely...michael stipe did a cover at an r.e.m. concert during the 80s that was pretty badass...

Joanna said...

Stipe is a TOTALLY different animal. I like Stipe....

I could never use those Soapy Chica soaps, they are too pretty! All the soaps are beautiful, but those really grab my eye. The song stuck in my head recently has the lines, "Your cousin Larry is gonna get married, so you check your libido and rent a tuxedo...then you start thinkin and the bridesmaid thinks that your winkin, so she winks back..." I think it's Bust a Move or something like that. Goodness knows how I picked it up, but it has been in my head for days!
